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.
