Obama to see storm damage in New Jersey Wednesday

(CNN) - President Barack Obama will travel to New Jersey Wednesday to assess storm damage in the state following Superstorm Sandy, according to a statement from his press secretary Jay Carney.

"Tomorrow afternoon, the President will travel to New Jersey where he will join Governor Christie in viewing the storm damage, talking with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thanking first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities. Additional scheduling details will be released when they are available," Carney wrote.

    according to what I have read from some right wingers here the president would be back out campaigning on Weds. I guess now though since they can't use that against him they'll claim this is a photo op.

    This president is the man of the moment, he has shown real leadership in times of crisis, and I congratulate him for putting the people first over politics. HISTORY WILL JUDGE HIM BUT FOR NOW HE IS A MAN ON THE JOB.

    When is he going to tour the Benghazi murder site? When is he going to come clean on THAT disaster. Until then he has ZERO crebility as he and many in his adminstration have been caught in a huge web of lies to the American people. The cover up is being covered up by the LSM. A dark time in the history of this country.

    If this president worked this hard in the last 3 years, instead of the last 3 weeks, he would have no trouble getting re-elected. Too little, and much too late.

    It's time : BO MUST GO !

    =======================================================================
    Yeah right.... Obama went campaign fund raising while 4 Americans were screaming for help and being murdered in Benghazi. THAT is the leadership Obama needs to come clean on.

    If ONLY the Obstructionist Re-Thug-Li-Cons in CONGRESS were willing to work with President Obama the way Republican Chris Christie has willingly done on more than one occasion.

    Romney is still giving political relief hand out in Ohio instead of New Jersey where it is most needed. Ohio is already taken by Obama and Romney must get out.

    Nearly the entire gist of the republicant argument has been "I know you are but what am I?" or "Benghazi." How has Benghazi affected even one of you right-wingers personally? Versus how many lives (and pocketbooks) have been affected by the idiotic Iraqi war and then having to mop up Afghanistan?

    OMAR, I'm not a racist. It's his white lying side, I don't like.

    One is rushing for votes and another one to help people with full heart not just a show.
    Why try to get votes if you do not have people in your heart?
    A deceiver tries tries to act like the real one! You need to discern to know him.
    Put up an ad to deceive in Ohio and get Votes. NO SIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The choice is very clear Obama & Biden!

    President Obama cares about families and Romney only doing photo-op
    Romney lost my vote when he said get rid of fema people depending on the govenment to help that why we pay taxes.
    Romney is not presidential.

    President Obama has been there for the people. He has been there when the fallen troops have come home. He is bringing troops home and ending the war. Ended warn in Iraq, fot Bin Ladent. saved the auto industry, the economy is slowly getting better. Does not flip flop and is consistent and cares for every American. Is respected all over the world. Just review Romney's record in MA. Cannot believe what he stands for because we don't know what he stands for. Changes depending on who he is with. Reminds me of someone in elementary school trying to make friends. Obama will help the country and we know what we have with him. None of them are perfect, as we know with Bush. Romney really makes Bush look very good and credible. We don't want to go back to the Bush years and that is where Romney/Lyin Ryan will take, and even further back to the 1950's. Obams 4 more.

    President Obama has shown how to put politics aside in times of crisis. He cares about our people regardless of their social-economic status. Thank you mr president.

    Ben Ladin was responsible for a great many American deaths-our pres. eliminated him. 4 were killed in Benghazi-the investigation is still underway. Our pres. said the ones responsible will be dealth with. He succeeded once, why should we doubt him now? Repubs. hung up on this issue would criticize the pres. no matter what he does. Two parents of the dead ambassador and one of the seals has requested this not be dwelled on-but you Repubs. can't even honor that. You're disgusting!!
