For a day at least, Hurricane Sandy appears to have done for President Obama what he has not been able to do for himself - Romney did not respond to reporters who asked whether he is reconsidering his earlier assertion that disaster management is a job that should be turned over to the states.

From The Washington Post:

For a day at least, Hurricane Sandy appears to have done for President Obama what he has not been able to do for himself.

In a campaign notable mostly for its negativity, the historic storm provided Obama with a commander-in-chief moment a week before Election Day. The president gained a rare moment of bipartisan praise, with Democratic and Republican governors alike commending the performance of the federal government. And the storm put on pause, for now, the sense that rival Mitt Romney had all the momentum in the home stretch.

Romney . . .  did not respond to reporters who asked whether he is reconsidering his earlier assertion that disaster management is a job that should be turned over to the states.

For now, the president’s Chicago-based reelection team is exhibiting no urgency to return him to the campaign trail. The campaign canceled two rallies in Ohio on Wednesday, and one aide said Obama’s schedule is being determined by the president, along with White House advisers such as David Plouffe and Chief of Staff Jacob Lew.

This aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk frankly about internal strategy, suggested that at this point, the rallies are marginally helpful in getting supporters to vote, but that otherwise “the race is set.”

I think this is all bluff on the Romney Campaign about turning states like Pennsylvaina, Michigan & even Minnesota red. It's going to come down to who can win Ohio....PERIOD! The media has palyed a great role in the perception that many of these blue states will all of a sudden turn red. Romney will win Florida & North Carolina & possibly Colorado. If he can't win Ohio, he has no shot of winning next tuesday. If Romney can win Ohio, then he's on his way to the White House
