Obama and Christie Tour Hurricane Sandy Aftermath and Romney Wants to Defund FEMA

President Obama landed in New Jersey today to show solidarity with Republican Governor Chris Christie in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. After Christie spent most of the day yesterday praising Obama on TV, this is another high profile example of the president rising above politics and bridging the ideological divide in this time of crisis.
Meanwhile, major questions remain as to whether a President Mitt Romney would even keep FEMA as a federally-funded relief operation. In a 2011 primary debate he quite forcefully stated that states should be on their own after natural disasters and anything else would be "immoral." Now that we're six days away from the election and many Americans are grateful for any and all relief after Hurricane Sandy, Romney is once again taking a more moderate stance. Rachel Maddow examined his reluctance to commit one way or the other last night.
