Chronicling the never ending, ad nauseam ability of those of a certain political persuasion to exploit a situation for political gain...
First, let’s juxtapose the emails of Romney and Obama on the eve of the Storm Sandy -
Via American Thinker
After all Barack has done in office, and after all you have done to build this campaign, we can't afford to watch everything slip away on Election Night.
But the other side has out-raised us-our opponents have $45 million more than we do for the Final Stretch.... And none of us has ever seen what a barrage of money like that will do.
That's why we need to do everything we can in the last days, and why we still need your support.
And, until, tomorrow night, any donation you make will automatically enter you to meet Barack on Election Night!
We can either give it our all in these final days, or wake up on November 7th wishing we'd done a little more.
Supporting this campaign once more will move us closer to victory, and enter you to win a trip to join Barack on Election Night.
Now from Romney -
Tonight, Ann and I are keeping the people in Hurricane Sandy's path in our thoughts and prayers.
I hope that if you can, you will reach out to your neighbors who may need help getting ready for the storm-especially your elderly neighbors.
And if you can give of your resources or time, please consider supporting your local Red Cross organization - visit www.redcross.org to get involved.
For safety's sake, as you and your family prepare for the storm, please be sure to bring any yard signs inside. In high winds, they can be dangerous and cause damage to homes and property.
Stay safe and God bless,
One wants your money, the other wants you to be safe and give to the Red Cross. Yeah, tough choice on election day.
Now here’s (my) Governor of NY State, Andrew Cuomo, making a ridiculous statement that either hints at global warming and or is political cover to use for even more delays on allowing fracking in NY. (Full Video, NBC News)
“We have to come to the realization that we are dealing with extreme weather patterns that we haven’t seen...probably ever.”
Over to Bubba who just can’t help himself and tries to slam Romney by suggesting Pres. Obama would be better at combating (the fallacy of) climate change.

To Andrea Mitchell at MSNBC who actually questioned the sincerity of a “storm relief” event by Romney.

To finally back to Pres. Obama who seems to be using his campaign slogan of “Forward” while giving a press conference on the hurricane.
Go to The Blaze for the video.
By the way, Mr. President, when is the press conference on Benghazi?
