Obama Focuses on Sandy, Not Election


Hurricane Sandy Buffets Presidential Campaign

With Obama jetting back to the White House on official duty this morning, Clinton picked up the slack, telling supporters in Orlando that electing Romney would allow the Republican "to get credit for the 12 million jobs that Obama laid the foundation for."

The Romney campaign responded in kind, with spokesman Ryan Williams accusing the "Obama campaign [of] doubling down on false and discredited attacks… On November 6, Floridians and voters across the country will choose his positive agenda over President Obama's increasingly desperate attacks."

The Republicans, careful not to take shots at President Obama directly during the crisis, will, however, have plenty of opportunities to fire back at Clinton. The former president will be in Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, New Hampshire and Wisconsin in the coming days.
