This storm is real folks. Cranes are hanging in New York, and here in Philly we are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. The Mayor and all the usual suspects have been on television all day telling the folks here to be safe and to listen to the warnings that are being given. Hopefully my peeps will listen.
The feds have given all the states what they needed so far, and from what I can tell, FEMA (the same agency that Mitt wanted to privatize) has been on their game. The last thing that O needs is a "Brownie you're doing a heck of a job", moment.
I caught O's live news conference as well, and so far so good. One reporter asked him how Sandy would affect the upcoming elections and he didn't bite. I am glad to see that he has his priorities right.
Mitt, as he always does in a moment of crisis, has been trying to play Commander in Chief as well. For his sake I hope that this works out better then his other attempt to meddle in the day to day affairs of the office of president.
I am going to hurry with this post, because I could lose power any minute now.
If you live on the East Coast please keep yourselves safe and out of harms way.
And, if you can't swim, stay away from the water.
