Hurricane Sandy: Divine Wind for Obama
October 26, 2012
Hurricane Sandy ripped through the Bahamas with 100-mph winds on Friday. It is now headed straight for the East Coast of the United States. The storm is dominating the news cycle and pushing election coverage to the sidelines as Romney takes a marginal lead, according to establishment polls.
“With President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on center stage next week, the storm’s aftermath could affect voting logistics, travel, and even the volume of campaign TV advertising,” writes Scott Bombay for Constitution Daily.
It may also present itself as the October Surprise many have predicted for this year’s presidential election.
Obama needs a serious boost following his lackluster performance during the first presidential debate. Sandy may very well be his “divine wind,” or Kamikaze, the typhoons that saved Japan from two Mongol fleets under the command of Kublai Khan.
If Sandy strikes Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, it will undoubtedly produce widespread chaos and present an ideal opportunity for Obama to come off as a strong and decisive leader marshaling FEMA and the federal government’s “emergency management” apparatus into action. Following the “perfect storm,” the establishment media will naturally provide all the propaganda Obama needs to sweep the election on Tuesday, November 6, a week after the hurricane is projected to hit.
“It’s almost a weeklong, five-day, six-day event,” said National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecaster Jim Cisco from from NOAA’s northern storm forecast center outside of Washington. “It’s going to be a widespread serious storm.”
