    if he isn't in Washington DC when it hits Washington DC, it will look very bad.  Do you remember W's famous picture from inside Air Force One touring New Orleans?  

    Sorry that this is what modern politics has devolved to but you not only have to be good, you have to look good.

    •  Erm -- Obama (8+ / 0-)

      won't be touring a disaster area after ignoring days of warnings from NOAA, having a birthday cake with the old anchor and praising an utterly inept FEMA asshole.

      FEMA is in place already.  The President does not have to be in DC.  Affected people, like potentially me, don't give a shite where he is -- we want to know emergency services are going to provide help, get our grid back up so we can vote a week later.

      You don't think Obama doesn't realize a full-bore FEMA response is critical the week before an election??
