Pres. to residents: 'We are here for you'
Now that the AP has talked so much about how great of a person Obama is for his
concern (taking a break from campaigning), when are they going to stop
predicting doom and gloom for Romney and start giving him credit because he is
showing his concern while he takes a break from campaigning?Oh yeah,
they avoid anything that puts Republicans in a positive light.
It's not Obama, it's the Associated Press.I'm humbled
and concerned for the people living in New Jersey, New York and the surrounding
areas. My heart goes out to them. Weather is no respecter of persons and I
sincerely hope that life returns back to normal soon.I'm glad
the government is doing all it can to help the people. Their first obligation is
to keep the American people safe on things that are as catastrophic as a major
hurricane. We, the people, also have an obligation to make sure we're
prepared.Now to politics. We have a major election coming up. I have
no doubt that Obama is using this to help stop the Romney momentum. He's
being 'presidential'. I would be doing the same thing. I don't
fault him for that.However I do fault the press. I've read two
stories today on the candidates, both on Deseret News and both from the
Associated Press. One article praised Obama, the other skewered Romney. The
Associated Press is supposed to be news, not opinion.It disgusts and
angers me. Neither candidate deserves what the AP is touting. Media bias anyone?
Conservatives always play the media card but yet more people watch Fox News or
read daily blogs. Both those sources are as bias as the AP or NBC. Obama is
doing what he is suppose to do. Mitt is doing the things he should right now.
The people who see it otherwise had rose colored glasses on before the storm
hit. Rifleman and Patriot are the only two people frequently commenting here
that see things objectively.
@riv coug So have read the paper over the last few days? there have been
at least a few stories (written by national writers) about Romney's
response to the hurricane that where very positive. they are as far away as the
archives button at the bottom of th page. stop trying to paint Romney as a
He finally stopped hannityrushing.
Obama has distinguished himself by his leadership of the hurricane response. He
deserves the praise given him by Chris Christie and many others.Romney, not so much...
To "I M LDS 2" Obama has only shown his desire for getting in some good
photo ops. When the President visits any city, it causes all sorts of issues
for the local police department. You take police officers away from helping
people and puts them on escort detail to protect the President. Obama stopping
to personally tour the damaged areas only go to show that he has no idea what
the consequences are of his actions.Romney has done things to help
the victims. As was pointed out in another artlcle, the Red Cross is
disorganized. Romney is sending in help, and even asked that donations be sent
to help victims of the storm rather than be sent to his campaign.Outside of writing checks, what has Obama done? We have the photos of Romney
packing food and supplies, but ask yourself, what has Obama done outside of tell
people to wait for the government to care for them?
Redshirt,President Obama has done a LOT for the victims of the
hurricane.But before I start listing things, tell me, if I answer
your question, will you change your opinion or your vote?
To "I M LDS 2" outside of writing checks, and tying up the police to
protect him, what has he done.It will not change my vote, but it
may, if what you say is true, change some of my opinions about obama.
Sandy hits the heartland of liberals, and they still think government is the
answer. Gas lines, food shortages, and energy shortages.When it
comes down to help, it's people helping people. Government regulations, and
time wasting approvals will not cut it.
