Hurricane Sandy, or FrankenStorm, is a Category One and already starting to lash against the East Coast. The worst case scenarios are frightening enough that a number of coastal areas, including parts of New Jersey and the lower parts of Manhattan, have already been evacuated. While the media does tend to over-hype these things, there’s no question Sandy could be a historic and deadly storm. That, however, has not stopped Obama’s surrogates in the form of Bill Clinton and NBC News from already using Sandy as a political weapon against Mitt Romney.
It’s a beautiful thing being Barack Obama, isn’t it? CorruptMedia love means never being held accountable for your surrogates. Even as Mitt Romney is beaten senseless for days over comments made by Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, Obama is never held politically accountable for anything done in his name. This includes ads that accuse Romney of murder. This is why Obama’s surrogates feel comfortable saying and doing just about anything, including using a monster hurricane as a political weapon.
For example, today, in Florida, former president Bill Clinton is campaigning on behalf of Obama, and already he’s equating Sandy to what Americans will face should Romney win:
“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”
