    Will she make candidates look bad or linger long enough to be an issue on election day?

    I noticed Romney cancelled two events so as to not use up first responders

    It's not much of an opportunity for Romney. Obama, however, as CIC, will be in the spotlight doing what president's do in these situations. Maybe it sways votes, maybe not.

    It helps Obama by taking the focus off Benghazi.

    It also creates a situation where he looks presidential.

    It hurts him because early voting in Philly will be curtailed.

    It will destroy him if Eastern Pennsylvania is dark on the 6th...Republicans would swim naked thru a mountain of red hot razor blades to vote against him....his constituency can barely be cajoled to get off the couch.

    Not at all except on this board to where:

    If the President remains at the White House, he's given up
    If the President goes campaigning, he's insensitive

    Obama won Pennsylvania when Romney was nominated.

    Nobody is focused on Behgazzi except for right wing loons.

    Nah, because of where the storm is headed he is where he needs to be. Coordinating an emergency response however does not require multiple tv appearences unless he's intentionally politicizing it.

    Sandy has already made you look bad. Well, worse.

    You just might want to check where he was when he decided to go back to bed.

    Yep. He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

    We saw how Mittens acts and talks in the face of national need - he blamed Obama.

    Obama simply gets it done. There are a lot of people who are glad Mittens ("end FEMA") isn't going to be deciding who gets federal aid and who goes without. And, unless they vote on giving more money to one percenters, the Rs won't do anything at all.

    I'd say it can help Obama, but I don't think it will.

    This is one of those times where either candidate attempting to "go in and help" only makes them look insincere and insensitive.
