    No, Romney is a Mormon and that's what Mormons do during a disaster. Probably why the Mormon missionaries were out doing the same thing.

    The President did his job. Romney threw a photo op and tried to pretend that he cared. Business as usual for both of them. Business as usual.

    Louie, Where did you get that information. Regardless of weather it was a staged event or not, what was going on there was to help those affected by Sandy. Besides, this disaster didn't hurt Obama's election campign either.

    Interesting to find out that much of the grocery supplies were bought and paid for by the GOP election committee and given to people as a ticket to meet the Candidate. Kind of a staged event don't you think?

    "Collecting supplies in a swing state is politicking."

    I suppose it was politicking when Mitt Romney bailed out the 2002 Winter Olympics without pay, or took no salary when he was Gov. of Mass.

    Service is who Romney is and what he does, and the liberals hate him for it.

    I didn't make an accusation, I asked a question. How does someone lose credibility asking a question? If you or one vote can answer it, that's great. I'll give Obama all the credit.

    @ LoveLife: "Disagree with his politics, whatever, but attacking his character makes you look very small."

    You make such a great plea and have such a great statement, and then you do exactly what you warn one vote not to do - thereby losing all credibility.

    one vote~

    If you had been paying attention without all your preconceived notions, you would know that pitching in to help is part of Romney's character. If you don't believe it, go back and read the stories from the RNC. Or, look at a Forbes column on 10/22/2012 titled "The Mitt Romney You Don't Know (Yet)".

    Disagree with his politics, whatever, but attacking his character makes you look very small.

    What has Obama ever done, just out of the kindness of his heart, to help someone else?

    Collecting supplies in a swing state is politicking. How ironic to have a campaign derailed by a natural disaster.

    What a great picture to see a man who knows how to lead by example. He understands the words of humanitarian service for others. He understands what it is like to be in those situations when people need help and can't do it on their own. He also understands that the people that can volunteer to help others is a gift from God for those who are downtrodden.

    He has a smile on his face and is actively working to make a difference in this world. That is the type of person I can visualize in the White House and showing the world that we are a great nation due to our founding fathers and the leaders that exemplify those types of characteristics.

    You can tell he hasn't been influeced by our adversaries to give in to oppressors or dictators when they try to take away our freedoms. He understands our value system and that plenty of our soldiers prior to the revolutionary war to the shores of Tripoli or Benghazi sacrificed their lives for us and our country.

    We should be proud to have a volunteer from the Olympics volunteer to represent us as President next week.

    " ..... the Obama campaign would like to wish it is 2008, the reality is that they are now forced to 'play defense' in least six states — Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Colorado, New Hampshire, Iowa and Wisconsin — that they once believed were 'safe' Obama wins ... "

    Electoral Votes:

    Romney - 320
    Obama - 218

    Mark it down.
