A lot of the stories on Hurricane Irene have been interesting to say the least.
I have seen articles calling the hurricane "historic". There have already been articles discussing the economic impact of the hurricane.
I even saw one article today talking about how Governor Christie was under pressure to perform well. It will test his popularity. Do you even remember hearing the governor of Louisiana being mentioned in the buildup or aftermath of Katrina? Quick, what was the governor of Louisiana's name?
The point is, I think the media is in overdrive right now to spin this for Obama.
Things go well, he did a great job in this "historic" hurricane. Not like that idiot George Bush.
Things go bad, under the bus goes Christie. Evidently the federal government is only responsible for responding to natural disasters in Republican administrations.
Finally, Obama has an out on the economy. From today on the economy will be dealt a blow because of the hurricane. What could Obama do with such a disaster? George Bush only had to deal with Katrina and 9/11. He didn't have to deal with a historic hurricane.
