Obama making up for lost time after storm hiatus

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama dives back into campaigning after three days immersed in managing the federal response to the storm that battered the East Coast.

The contours of the presidential race remain much the same, with Obama and Republican Mitt Romney locked in a tight contest and both campaigns predicting victory.

The president's advisers insist his break from campaigning had minimal impact on his standing. If anything, it gave Obama a chance to offer the type of comfort and command in a crisis that only a president can deliver.

Still, the Democratic campaign is seeking to make up for the lost time with a heavy travel itinerary in the coming days, including rallies Thursday in Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado.

Romney is campaigning Thursday in Virginia.

I watched Obama walking around NJ trying to look intelligent. It didn't work. Then he made a stupid statement - "we take care of our own". Guess he forgot about Libya and our Military. He should be ashamed but he is too much of a narcissist. He is absolutely good for nothing and CT supporting him says all I want to know.
