Um, I’m sorry, I said below that President Obama’s campaigning would resume Thursday. It actually resumed this morning.
Obama today suddenly materialized at the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington, where
he interfered with everyone’s work received an update on progress addressing the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
What is there he will do at FEMA that he can’t do at the White House? He’s already using the Situation Room to monitor the disaster – now he can talk on a secure line with the mayor of Ocean City – so presumably he can get everyone on a video screen he needs.
What he can do at FEMA that he can’t do at the White House is get a photo of himself taken at FEMA. Which is exactly what he did. Reporters were not invited to witness him being urgently briefed on urgent matters, but somehow, the photographers were escorted right in.
What’s more – could this possibly be a coincidence?? – Romney is currently under fire for supposedly suggesting FEMA should be eliminated. Which he didn’t. But Obama not only loves FEMA, he is in the building.
Gosh, I sure hope they poll-tested his trip to FEMA before sending him there.
