Obama during the 2012 election period was immediately on the scene of Hurricane Sandy which hit the northeastern states in a "perfect storm" swamping many cities. Great photo ops with Chris Cristie. He's made no appearance in the hard hit, flooded Louisiana. He's on vacation golfing. He bitterly harangued President Bush for flying over Hurricane Katrina and allowing the Democrat governor of the state and Democrat mayor of New Orleans use their plans. Setting a plane down in the midst of disaster relief areas with all the security needed for a president was not considered a good excuse by him.
