Brilliant as ever Jonah, just one correction. You said: with the D.C. press corps, which loves both stories of bipartisanship and stories that help Obama. I think what you meant is: with the D.C. press corps, which loves both stories of Republicans acting liking Liberals and that help Obama.

If President Obama had the time for some introspection on the campaign trail, he might take offense at all the media speculation (and in many cases wishful thinking gussied up as speculation) that his response to Hurricane Sandy will give him the edge going into Election Day.

In effect, people are saying: "Obama is doing the minimum requirements of his job, what a game-changer!"

Now, one could quibble about whether he's really doing what a president should. He's handing out a bunch of checks, which is warranted, but he has staff to do that. Moreover, presidential photo ops at disaster sites...
