Hurricane Sandy aftermath

Can Sandy really have and impact?

Hurricane Sandy has made herself very clear that she is not just a little rain and some thunder.  She has caused building to collapse, the Subway to flood, and as many as 33 people lost their life due to Sandy. Many might think that a natural disaster can have no impact of the political world, but this is far from the truth.

Because of Sandy Obama has the chance to show that he is a leader, willing to help, and get everything back to normal for those who have been affected by the storm.  But this is also a test for Obama, if he does not react in such a way as the president should he could lose many votes in the North East.

Allowing Romney to come in and possible win Ohio, Pennsylvania, or maybe even Hew Hampshire getting him closer to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.  America, keep your eyes and ears wide open, to see and hear who you would rather have as your president, Mitt Romney or Barak Obama. And you have the power to change the direction America is headed.

About the author

I very much enjoy reading a good book, singing, politics, spending time with family. I hope that participating in the American Government Experience will make me more informed about our political system.
