Who is Politicizing Hurricane Sandy? Obama Electioneers During Hurricane Press Conference – Tells Team to “Lean Forward” in Their Response


It looks like Obama is taking Rahm Emanuel’s advice … “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

Democrats and the bias MSM are so quick to accuse Romney of politicizing Hurricane Sandy, but who is really politicizing it? One needs to look no further than Barack Obama and the following comments told his hurricane support team, to “lean forward” in their response to the hurricane cleanup.

Oh, by the way if you did not realize, that is his campaign slogan.

As reported at the Washington Times, ‘Forward: Obama gets a little electioneering in during FEMA briefing’.

President Obama may have suspended his campaign rallies due to Hurricane Sandy, but he managed to squeeze in his campaign slogan — intentionally or not — during a briefing Tuesday with federal emergency officials.

“The president made clear that he expects his team to remain focused as the immediate impacts of Hurricane Sandy continue and lean forward in their response,” the White House said in a statement about Mr. Obama’s video-teleconference that he conducted from the White House Situation Room. “Forward” is the slogan of his re-election campaign.

      “The president has been all over this and he deserves great credit,” Christie said. “I’ve been on the phone with him, like I said, yesterday, personally three times. He gave me his number at the White House, told me to call him if I needed anything. And he absolutely means it.”

      SM: Character, what one does when no one is watching. Obama wishes he had an ounce of character. He said NO to helping Americans and Benghazi. Then he says he did everything possible. LIAR!

      Obama lied and Americans DIED!!!

      Christie! The definition of a leader.
      Unlike anyone the republicans ran
      SM: Yes Christie is a leader and he is a Republican. Obama wishes he could lead like Christie. Obama pales in comparison to Christie.

      You Libs crack me up, now you are praising Christie. The same man who has trashed Obama.

      New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie bashes President Obama as ‘bystander in the Oval Office’

      more of your alternate planet…
      getting a bit nervous i see……
      Ohio, NH, MI = Obama 2012 victory

      now you have GM, Chrysler and JEEP talking about what a liar Mitt is. Great Job!!
      Hardly going to help you win over the states the republicans were just going to abandon by letting the auto industry die.
      SM: Maybe you would like to come back to this place we all call Earth.
      SM: Sorry, but the Q poll is a BS +8D skewed sampling poll. Please, this is a greater sampling turnout model than 2008. Obama ain’t recreating 2008 this year. As a matter of fact it is the GOP that leads in enthusiasm.


      If this is what you Democrats bank on to win a state, you are going to be severely disappointed the day after the election.

      How do you expect Mitt to win with less than 270 votes?
      do you magically expect to flip PA? Because that might be worth a Mitt 10K bet!
      SM: Mitt will win OH,WI,VA,NC,FL,CO, NH. Sorry, but when Obama is struggling in states like PA,MI,MN and IA … he has serious problems.

    6. fiz on November 1st, 2012 7:51 am

      struggling in PA

      what a laugh

      only reason romeny is trying in pa , wi is because he is losing ohio….
      the lies are killing him
      SM: You really don’t know much about running a campaign do you. He is running ads there as he has more $’s than Obama and he did an end run to buy up ad time in PA, MI and MN and Obama never saw it coming.

      Romney may had bought all the ad time and locked Obama out. That is brilliance.

      BTW, early voting has Romney up in OH.

    7. fiz on November 1st, 2012 8:25 am

      NBC/WSJ/Marist polls: IA: Obama 50%, Romney 44%… NH: Obama 49%, Romney 47%… WI: Obama 49%, Romney 46%…
      SM: Good grief, want to bet on that poll? You are going to reference a skewed Marist poll? Really? If that is all you got, I am more enthused than I was before.

      NH wont support romney…to close to mass…..those of us who lived under mittens in mass know he is a blatant liar….

      mi wont support romney – he screwed the auto industry and lied like a rug this week and got called out.

      ohio isnt supporting Romney for the same reasons as mi
      mn isn’t supporting Romney

      you cant get to 270

      these states all might have supported a differnt candidate,…..but the one running against obama has no sole and you cant even say what he supports….becuase mittems himslef doesnt knopw what he supports. depends on the time of day…

      as you tell others don’t bank om the polls…
      Id say to you don’t bank on them being wrong….
      I suspect the people traking them might know a bit more than you do…or than i do
      The one id be HIGHLY skeptical off is rasmussen……until he starts polling cell users…..30% of the voters don’t use a land-line anymore

      of btw…..the cnn poll just came our for Colorado… Obama is +_2
      yoru running out of time…
      SM: You liberals seem awfully desperate and seem to be losing your minds with your comments. I think you might be fearing defeat.

      Romney up in NH by 2


      Romney up in Colorado: 50-47
