      Certainly his primary concern was to help and get emergency relief to the people affected.

      Hurricane Sandy also hit at the very end of a grueling Presidential campaign, on Oct 29 -- just one week away from the election on Nov 6. It undoubtedly helped his campaign to appear as a national leader during an emergency, and to present an image (plastered across national TV screens) of him working hand in hand with a Republican governor. (Some winnable voters like that kind of 'bipartisan' appeal.)

      Mittens, on the other hand, was not amused by being shunted aside. ;-)
