    Rifleman, I appreciate the point man that you are, in this case.

    There is more to the President's tactics with the storm, I suppose. As a retired Air Force pilot and involved with the President's fleet during the Reagan administration, it took a lot of work for the Air Force to plan his missions. This President probably has done more travelling than President Reagan. Efficiency is supposed to be part of the game. The cost of making the almost daily trips and not be in Washington D.C. probably takes a toll on the Air Force people and their process.

    The hurricane is a good reason to be involved as the CEO of our country. Those professionals in FEMA, NOAA, Homeland Security and others such as the military, know what they are doing and do it well.

    The problems we had in Benghazi will not go away, as the storm moves out to sea. There are a lot of questions that still need answering. The Storm is not Sandy but the Benghazigate. The complexity of all the involved Departments and Agencies will surface. This is not Watergate as people died during the dedicated and everyday duties for Americans.

    "I an well aware of who Tyrone Woods was."

    Stay on topic? OK. Hurricane Sandy isn't going to blow strong enough to provide cover for Mr. Obama now that we are finding out why Tryone Woods died while our government looked the other way.

    "The father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods – who was killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya – talked with Megyn Kelly about the current administration’s handling of the situation. Charlie Woods told Kelly today that he’s not interested in political arguments, but he does want to know who decided to not dispatch troops who could have helped, instead leaving his son to defend the Americans on his own while fighting for his life."

    I an well aware of who Tyrone Woods was.

    What does that have to do with Hurricane Sandy?

    Stay on topic, please.

    Who was former US Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, and what led up to his death?

    There is going to be a whole lot more cutting and pasting as Americans finally start hearing why the former Navy Seal of the roof of the building in Benghazi, Libya didn't get the air support he was expecting when he lit up the enemy with a laser.

    It cost him his life, his father is speaking out about it, and Obama is toast.

    Cutting and pasting the same comment in every story about the hurricane now, and then liking your own comment.

    If the President stays in Washington, D.C., he will be better able to manage the hurricane and extra ordinary storms for the well-qualified professional and dedicated people that normally manage those types of things.

    He needs to recoup the $900,000 they spent for the stadium during the convention that they didn't use. Sort of like being the CEO of a community organizing entity that takes 85 percent of their funds for administrative costs as it is government money and only 15 percent goes for operational costs.

    It is hard to forget about the four fastest ships he has sent to ensure our common defense. Truth is truth and only the facts change for this transparent President with Czars to help in his leadership process.

    These 4 years have been a repeat of President Carter's years but the government employees sort of got a pay raise during this time but the economy is about the same. The swine flu vaccine was administered during President Carter's time and is being administered again during this administration.

    I hope FEMA appreciates the hands-on approach this President has for them and our country. State Department is another thing.

    Oh how sad the the campaign has to bow to Mother Nature. How will we survive without the deluge of ads and constant news stories of "he said" no "he said?"
