Skip to comments.Pundit Grateful for Hurricane Sandy
Posted on 11/11/2012 12:37:07 PM PST by John Semmens
MSNBCs Chris Matthews called the timely arrival of Hurricane Sandy last week a God send, and a small price to pay for ensuring the reelection of President Obama.
Prior to the storm, polls were showing that Romney might win this thing, Matthews averred. But the wreckage of peoples homes and the promise of redemption from the federal government that was held forth reinforced the case for big government in many voters minds.
Governor Christies virtual endorsement of President Obama didnt hurt either, Matthews added. Having a Republican governor laud the Presidents leadership as magnificent kind of deflated Romneys contention that he would be the best man to work across the aisle.
That the storm killed more than 100 people and caused over $30 billion in property damage failed to faze Matthews. The reelection of the President will easily save many more lives, Matthews argued. Just yesterday, the Administration announced its support for the UN Small Arms Treaty. If this treaty is ratified by the Democratically controlled Senate the federal government will have the authority to confiscate weapons from those who arent qualified to have them. This alone will save thousands of lives a year.
Far from being a negative, the $30 billion it will cost to rebuild will stimulate the economy and provide jobs, Matthews continued. It will be hard for Republicans to oppose more spending while people are suffering. In a way, the more destruction there is, the better it is for the Presidents agenda.
