Wow! What a switch,Obama acted like a President for one day by going to New Jersey and offering help. That is his job and he certainly does't deserve brownie points for it. Would anybody really vote for Obama just for that??? He sure hasn't done his job otherwise,just goofing off.

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...
