Hurricane Sandy: Which Presidential Candidate Will She Help?

Hurricane Sandy could not have had better timing for a country that has just about reached its limit on campaign fatigue.

Not that I’m glad that the Frankenstorm with the friendly-sounding name has wreaked havoc on the entire Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. I wish there was something more than writing a check to the Red Cross that I could realistically do to help so many people who are are going to be without power, water and homes until some FEMA relief starts coming their way.

But the storm-prompted respite from the last days of the 2012 presidential campaign is over. Not that it is, how can Mitt Romney and President Obama make the most political hay in these last days without alienating the voters who bore the brunt of Sandy?

That’s what I’m pondering over at my regular column, The Spin Cycle. What are your thoughts? How can the candidates thread this needle?

    Given the fact that Gov. Christie said the President has done an outstanding job, I would think President Obama would benefit. Also, Gov. Romney’s comments about FEMA will probably give some people pause.

    I already had that thought crossing my mind, the hurricane Sandy came in a perfect timing for the Presidential elections campaigns, and I think that Obama will benefit the most of it since he is the actual president and he has all the authority to help people in the best way possible, I doubt that Romney can offer more help than Obama…
