Sandy Forces Obama, Romney To Cancel Campaign Events


US President Barack Obama had to cancel some of his campaign events on Monday and Tuesday due to the approaching hurricane, the CNN quoted White House spokesman Jay Carney as saying.

The US leader will “return to the White House to continue to monitor Hurricane Sandy, which is currently forecast to make landfall along the Eastern seaboard,” Carney said as quoted by the CNN.

According to forecasters, Sandy, whose Caribbean death toll rose to 58 on Saturday, is expected to make U.S. landfall on Monday night or Tuesday morning.

    Anyone who, at this point, is still choosing to support Romney is making a fatal mistake. The fact that he cannot give any specificity or further detail to his supposed economic plan to create more jobs is dangerous, as is the fact that he claims he will not ask the highest income Americans to pay anymore tax. This is because when any average person thinks about the fact that he also wants to add “trillions” of dollars to the military, which they have not asked for, there is no way, no how, this is not going to drive us into further recession. We cannot go down that road. We have come too far. And his social policies? The world is watching. For every single woman, every single person of color, every single person of every faith and denomination – we have come too far, America. We are moving forward.
