President Barack Obama consoled grieving victims of Superstorm Sandy on the ground and surveyed disaster zones from the air on Thursday, visiting parts of New York City still struggling to recover 17 days after the storm devastated the U.S. Northeast.
Wearing a wind breaker and sturdy shoes, the president walked through destroyed sections of the borough of Staten Island, hugging and chatting with people whose lives were shattered when Sandy slammed ashore on October 29, bringing a record storm surge and killing more than 120 people.
During his FIRST visit to the areas devastated by this incredible storm, the President was criticized for using it as a photo-op for political gain. Well now the election is over, and here the President is again, doing the job he was elected to do.
Clearly it was NEVER about the photo-op, it was about helping people in need.
I am sure that Mitt Romney probably has the help that FEMA provided these devastated people on his list of things the President GAVE voters in order to buy their support.
