Hey, the Obamas are buying a $40 million estate in Hawaii with the help of billionaire heiress Penny Pritzker. The wealthiest families in Chicago are being leaned on heavily to contribute with Penny aggressively guilt-tripping them with appeals of "You don’t want the President to be homeless in January, do you?!” Tough life touting wealth transfer in your first ever real job!

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...
