Hurricane Sandy showed President Barack Obama to be the perfect president to handle it.
Before the first breeze trumpeting the eminent arrival of Superstorm Sandy ruffled our hair, our president was making arrangements for the emergency relief for those who would be the possible victims. And when the fear became a reality, he was ready and implemented all necessary government measures and also visited the troubled scenes them selves.
Ask Republican Governor Chris Christie. This was no Hurricane Katrina scenario.
Imagine Mitt Romney in that position. During the June 13, 2011, Republican presidential debate, he uncharacteristically answered honestly that federal disaster relief was “immoral.” He said that he would have the private sector handle it.
Disaster for profit why not? The concept would be laughable if it wasn't so lamentable.
