Again, Governor Romney leads by example. He is correct to say that state and local government should be the real people involved in the process. He did clarify that he and Ryan would provide the help and aid that would be needed if a state and local entity needed help. He would not let the people suffer if states and the local authorities couldn't take care of the situation.

The Washington, D.C. area shuts down periodically due to the weather. This was a wider area but all the governors and mayors were ensuring their citizens were provided protection and warning and cautions of the current situation at the time.

I believe that the states and local government and volunteer organizations showed a lot of coordination and were prepared due to their exercising plans and procedures, periodically.

Thank goodness for processes that the government should be good or even exceptional at, safety and the general welfare of their citizens.

Our emergency responders and the utility companies do so much for our communities and state when the time arises. They know the needs of the local area than the federal government.

States of rights and they should be afforded them.

Something tells me that team Obama is meeting as we speak trying to figure out a way to squeeze any political gain possible out of Sandy. Who cares about the storm or the havoc - just look for political gains. I'm also certain there is a weak attempt to try to brush the Libya disaster under the rug for good and show Barack in the "situation room" looking all presidential and on top of things - quite the opposite from what happened with Libya. This guy is not deserving of the Oval Office and with any luck at all we can forget the name Barack Obama in a few days.... for good!!!

"Something tells me that team Obama is meeting as we speak trying to figure out a way to squeeze any political gain possible out of Sandy."

Care to back that up with some actual facts?

How about a gathering to get some food under the guise of helping all while your campaign videos blare on big screen monitors in the background. Nothing political about that, right?

Did the Romney rally for food land in Ohio just by chance?
