I guess after four days campaigning it’s time for another photo op to try to dupe people into thinking he gives a rat’s ass. Obviously the dire images from New York and New Jersey, not to mention the Drudge headlines, have him worried. They should.
President Barack Obama said Saturday that “there’s nothing more important than us getting this right” as he visited the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for an update on superstorm recovery efforts before beginning a final weekend of campaigning before Election Day.
Nothing more important? Really? So why have you been out campaigning and fundraising all week except for a carefully chosen photo op with Chris Christie? Why not a single visit to any other states ravaged by Sandy?
“There’s nothing more important than us getting this right and we’re going to spend as much time, effort and energy as necessary to make sure that all the people in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut know that the entire country is behind them in this difficult recovery effort. And we are going put not just 100 percent but 120 percent behind making sure that they get the resources that they need to rebuild and recover,” Obama said.
Curiously, while he was doing this today look who sent an urgent email to me:
If you’re with me, then I need you right now.
In 24 hours, Democratic candidates for Congress face the final — and most important — fundraising deadline of this campaign. We can’t fall short on this one.
Donate $3 or more right now to elect a Democratic majority in Congress.
But remember, Sandy recovery is his top priority. Well, after fundraising emails.
