Chris Christie halts campaigning for Romney; gets back to NJ and praises Obama's handling of the coming storm of the century—so far.
Obama cancels campaign appearance in Florida to get back to DC and act as Chief Executive during the pending and impending 'Perfect Storm'.
Reality has set in.
Some 50 million people are predicted to be affected by Hurricane Sandy.
NYSE is shut down today and probably tomorrow.
And there shall be no on-line trading either.
Power may be cut off for ten million of our citizens; maybe even more.
And these power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy might last through election day!
The weather prognosticators are not cutting back on their forecasts.
Quasi tsunamis are going to hit the Eastern Coastal areas from Virginia to New York.
Six inches of rain and more will hit the coastal areas while farther inland two feet of snow and more will most likely shut down traffic for hundreds of thousands or even millions of Americans.
The 'worst' of it shall be felt until Tuesday noon? But the aftermath of this hurricane might even be worse.
When can power be restored?
When can mass transit be restored?
When will roads become passable?
It is so petty to consider politics in all of this; but that does not keep cable news from being petty.
And I can hardly blame cable news really; especially since updates have been available every fifteen minutes.
I just find so much irony in the fact that following two full years of campaigning; most of it meaningless as far as substance that the last 8 days of this election have been interrupted by an Act of God!
Strange articles are showing up on the web already.
Mitt has previously stated that FEMA should be abolished and all emergency supervision sent back to the states.
Talk about politics.
But, on the other hand, our representatives in government are supposed to hone in on issues such as emergencies caused by Acts of God.
What we are witnessing is a perfect storm running from Virginia all the way north to our Canadian border; one state cannot handle this problem on its own and the bureaucracies involved can hardly cooperate on a state by state level; especially when five or ten states are facing perils associated with this natural catastrophe.
Christie has requested funds from the Feds and has received those funds and the support of the President of the United States. And Christie is requesting even more funds and support.
And Christie has praised the actions already taken by our President and suspended his campaigning for the Republican national ticket.
When you write a script for a movie, you need to include some ante-climactic scenes as well as THE CLIMAX.
What we are witnessing is a reality that mirrors a good script.
If there are power outages affecting millions upon millions of households; how can you 'get out the vote'. Hell, how can you vote?
If there are power outages that last a week or more people might be more worried about food and water and warmth than their right to vote.
Again, two years of meaningless campaigning and the campaign is shut down 8 days prior to the election!
Makes one consider whether or not the Good Lord is a little angry at us!
