    both foolhardy and, even more, somewhat self-destructive, for OFA not to "politicize" this event.  For just the reason you mention.

    It is defining...and it matters.  And it is clarifying.  Obama should stump for the next 7 days mocking Romney's derisive comments about "trickle down government", putting it in the context of an inundating storm that has caused $20 billion in damage.

    It's not "politicizing a tragedy", it's pointing out to voters that tragedies on this scale require a political response.

    Oregon: Sure...it's cold. But it's a damp cold.
