Obama: Storm is not over

(CNN) – "This storm is not yet over," President Barack Obama said Tuesday, speaking at the Red Cross headquarters in Washington. He warned that the storm is still moving north, and encouraged Americans to stay alert.

Obama called for "no bureaucracy, no red tape" in the federal government's response to Sandy's destruction.

    Boy, if he only worked this hard in the last 3 years as opposed to the last 3 days he would probably get re-elected.

    Too little and much, much too late.

    It's time : BO MUST GO !

    Did the Romney campaign even ASK the Red Cross what kind of help they need for the Sandy victims? My understanding is that the Red Cross can better use dollar donations than food/clothing donations. If this is true, then all the Romney campaign has done is help stock a food bank in Ohio (and I'm sure the food bank appreciated the help) and have done very little for the East Coast.

    truth hurts – stop the partisan B.S and be American for 5 minutes. Let the president do what he has to do to help Americans.

    Too late to repair all the unpresidential, partisan, and destructive acts of the last four years. One week before the election, the opportunist that he is, using a hurricane to try to act like he really cares about this country. After he rams the healthcare law down our throats, increases the deficit astronomically, shows no regard for our servicemen by not sending reinforcements to Benghazi (and jets off to Las Vegas for a campaign event), doesn't even address the nation or the families of the victims from the Benghazi horror, sends the women of his cabinet out to take the fall for him, and then claims he's for women's rights – it goes on and on. A visit to the Red Cross can't even begin to repair all of that. Yes, the storm isn't over – here comes election day.

    Ever wonder why Irene was no Katrina? Thank God for an experienced hand at the wheel! The only reason you don't remember the last few times President Obama "worked so hard" is that he does it so well and without making a big deal about it. No Drama Obama, as his critics like to call him. That's the man I want to see in the Oval Office for the next four years as well. I just wish he were a little better at whupping on congressional Republicans (like LBJ was) to get the country off the downward Reaganomics spiral. But national security and public safety come first; at this point I would just be happy to see the Bush tax cuts die like they were supposed to.

    There is ALWAYS bureaucracy, and always red tape.

    Mr. President, don't look now but there is a tsunami of votes headed for Romney on Nov 6th. You will probably need to schedule a press conference on Nov 7th to discuss the transitional process for your adminstration. Enjoy your retirement Mr. President, I understand Chicago is a bit chilly in January.
