I think, regardless of your ideological bent, you can appreciate the tough spot that Mitt Romney finds himself in today.
It's one week till Election Day, and he's trailing slightly in the most crucial states, and suddenly a storm hits and now — not only can he not campaign for fear of looking insensitive, but the President gets to go on television and look presidential in a time of emergency while being lavished with bipartisan praise for the job he and the federal government are doing. A job which, it might be worth mentioning, Romney has gone on record as saying, a president and the federal government should not do. So, yeah, tough spot to be in.
So, what do you do? Well, there's not much to do. But, you've got to do something. And this is probably it…

Why is it taking Obama so long to call Sandy an act of terror?

President Obama recently sat down with Rolling Stone and conducted what will probably be remembered by history as "The Bullshit Interview."
At some point during the interview, he was asked to give his thoughts on the writings of Ayn Rand and what he thinks about their underlying philosophy as interpreted by conservatives like Paul Ryan. He admits that he has read some Rand, which makes him like most politically-minded people. He does not say whether or not he finished any of her books, which would make him like almost no people.
Spoiler alert: He's not a fan…
"Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we'd pick up. Then, as we get older, we realize that a world in which we're only thinking about ourselves and not thinking about anybody else, in which we're considering the entire project of developing ourselves as more important than our relationships to other people and making sure that everybody else has opportunity — that that's a pretty narrow vision. It's not one that, I think, describes what's best in America. Unfortunately, it does seem as if sometimes that vision of a 'you're on your own' society has consumed a big chunk of the Republican Party."
This doesn't really surprise me. Barack Obama always struck me as more of a Middle Earth-type nerd.
