The ingredients awaiting Hurricane Sandy appear to be coming together to create what forecasters are calling a monster combination of high wind, heavy rain, extreme tides and maybe snow that could cause havoc along the East Coast just before Halloween next week.
"We looking at one of the worst storms on record that we've seen in this region," said Hurricane Specialist Carl Parker...
This bad girl is going to come crashing on to the East Coast, maybe right here in Jersey, by Tuesday - one week shy of Election Day.
And what an opportunity it will be for Barack Obama to use the pedestal of the presidency. He will adopt a grim tone on television, he will take helicopter rides to asses the damage and console heartbroken (female) homeowners, he will speak of strength and hope. But perhaps most importantly, Obama will do what he does best: Hand out tens of millions of dollars in federal aid to hard-hit states and localities, promising that the government will be there to help them rebuild.
And in an election where the margin is razor-thin, it just might be enough to push the final few fence-sitting voters to jump for Obama. And thus hand him the presidency. Again.
I remember when Hurricane Katrina was blamed on Dick Cheney's Halliburton Weather Machine, which created and steering a monster storm into New Orleans so he and the president could dance as black people died. Has Obama taken control of the weather machine, and created a bizarre yet powerful storm, a possible combined hurricane/blizzard, and navigated it into the East Coast in order to give him the crisis bump he so desperately needs to win the presidency?
Or is this actually the handiwork of Satan himself, seizing a chance for his favored son to stay in power, and continue to destroy the one nation always thought to be under God's providence?
God is the Creator; Satan is the counterfeiter.

Sure sounds like our president...
