    The 47percent are busy cleaning up the mess Sandy left so the wealthy one percent can enjoy their tax cuts and get junior a yacht just like daddys.

    If the voting polls were closed, then I'd say yes, it's too early to campaign.

    Romney never stopped campaigning. His little "relive effort" is just laughable.

    This campaign has been way too long already. We had better than a year of Republicans running for the nomination. The candidates dropped out and Mr. Romney added new ideas to his campaign platform. He seemed to change his mind quite frequently.

    The very worst part is the amount of money being spent on this election. Most of it is being donated to PACS and no one knows who is donating. We have no idea about the background or reputations of those donating to these huge Republican PACS, It is very worrisome because some of those in charge of the PACS do not have very pristine reputations.

    Why are we allowing this to happen? Why aren't we more vocal? The money is pouring into states for Senate and House Candidates too. The content of these ads is nothing short of ourtageous. The lies are flowing and the media is allowing these ads to be played over and over again. Where is truth in advertising? These same people would be screaming bloody murder if ads like this were being written about their companies or them.

    Donald Trump is acting like a petulant child. He has shown just why he should never be President! Meanwhile we are the losers because we are watching a campaign that is quickly sinking lower and lower. The worst part is that these people will not lose a minute's sleep over their part in this outrageous behavior.

    Well Romney barely even stop despite the hurricane. Probably just over 1 1/2 days that's it, basically half of the President's stoppage time.

    This is why I hate CNN. Who is this question in reference to? Has to be the President since that lying thug Mitt never stopped campaigning. CNN has become the "bottom of the bucket of mess" network. Your attempt at chasing after the morals and values of Fox News is what has your rating in the toliet already...will you ever learn? From reading this pathetic article, I guess not.

    I think the politicians could use their time to bring attention to the victims and explain how we could all help now. We could also discuss the "why" (i.e. global warming?) and how each plans to handle their answers to "why" Sandy was so deadly and destructive.

    It doesn't matter, now does it, since they are both campaigning anyway.

    is cnn biased or what? All your coverage today is negative. Not enough help, fFEMA not moving fast enough Red cross too slow.. this was a major storm and I think their doing a remarkable job given the situation. More coverage given to
    Romney's campaign. And tell Thomas Peterffy we have learned from the past that's why I intend to vote for Obama, we
    just can't go back to the same policies that got us where we are. It took 8 years under a the republican presidency to get us in this mess but Obama must fix the mess were in in only 4 years. GET REAL!!!!

    No, not really. The election is next week and the victims of Sandy will need help in the months to come. We must ensure that President Obama wins as Mittens wants to send FEMA to the states. I wonder how Gov. Christie would like to have one of those useless "block grants" tossed into his lapright now. NY/NJ need help and R/R won't help them much. By the way, Gov. Christie showed a side of himself that I have never seen before. He was thoughtful and showed a real care for the people of New Jersey. Good luck Gov. Christie and God bless the people of New Jersey and New York.

    It was nice to have a break from all the campaign attacks but the events of Super Storm Sandy did manage to give us something we have all been deprived of for far too long. We watched 2 political foes who managed to put politics aside and come together for the good of the people. Thank you President Obama and Govenor Christy for showing us it can be done. All politicians in Washington need to pay attention and learn a lesson it's not about you or your party it's about the people you represent.

    Romney never stopped. He just "renamed" the events and bought supplies to make it look like he was collecting food for victims. Oh... there's that word again. He doesn't believe anyone can be a victim...

    Bush (W) is in the Caymen's giving a lecture on how to "offshore" to "beat paying taxes" - quite the patriot, isn't he? NOT
