    WHY IS ROMNEY HOLDING A CAMPAIGN EVENT TODAY!!?? I think it is horrible that Mitt Romney is holding campaign events when the Governors of the affected states of hurricane Sandy, have not had a chance to tour the destruction and offer a complete assessment of the damages. What's More Important Here THE PEOPLE or the campaign!!

      Romney does not care if you are Black, Hispanic, Asian or the 47 percent Americans he was seen on Tape.
      Wake up Americans your country needs you if you are not the 1 percent.
      Make sure YOUR vote is counted. Romney will play dirty just like Bush did.
      Yes, you can stop Romney by voting for Obama.

    Piers,
    Do Americans really want to elect a person who uses devastation as a opportunit,y to push is run for president. Apparently, Ameicans dont see is campaign event in Ohio today as it really is, " to turn that state to his benifit". He is a disgusting irresposible being with few if ant values or morals. I hope he loses his race.

      Maybe Superman can scoop Griff to a mental hospital before he does harm to others or himself.

    I have family members who live in Jersey City,N.J. I need to know if there were any African Americans affected by Hurricane Sandy? Are they without power? or were they told to evacuate? I cannot get in touch with my brother or sisters. Since I have not seen any African Americans on any of the television stations who were caught in the flooded conditions are whatever at this moment I don't know what to think I am very concerned about my family members who were caught in Hurricane Sandy. Thank you in advance for checking into this matter for me.Sincerely, Rosemary Still

      I was wondering the same thing! After watching my precious city fall as a result of the Levees Breaking, The poor and stranded blacks were exploited in the news. But yet I have not seen one person of color interviewed. I guess only rich whites folks were devastated in New York.

    Romney must link Obama's premature reaction to a looming Hurricane Sandy with a press conference on Sunday, a full day before the storm made landfall, with that surrounding the attacks in Benghazi. He needs to ask why the response this time was so quick. He must be the one to ask that question! He needs to make the point that Obama looks like a guy with a poor grasp of two different situations.
