How long will it be before the storm is forgotten and it's back to politics as usual?


How long will it be before the storm is forgotten and it’s back to politics as usual?

Three or four days tops; it's too close to the election for Romney to sit quiet
  253 (34.8%)
Romney can't risk repeating his premature criticism of the Libyan embassy deaths
  47 (6.5%)
Not long; a FEMA mistake with the recovery will allow Romney to blast Obama
  124 (17.0%)
The goodwill from Gov. Christie's praise of Obama's storm efforts won't be erased
  304 (41.8%)
Total votes = 728

Storm recovery will be the hardest part

Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | PA. POLITICS Broken promise When questions arise as to why we have fewer and fewer people voting in nearly every election, Gov. Wolf is a perfect example. One of his primary campaign pledges was that he would require natural-gas extraction companies to pay a severance tax. We are the only major gas-producing state that does not have such a tax.
UNTIL THREE years ago, my wife and I were like a lot of immigrants: Drawn to the U.S. by jobs better than what we could find at home, we saw ourselves as outsiders - temporary resident aliens, as the government called us. Even living in Washington, I followed U.S. politics with detachment, the way you'd watch a football game between two schools in states you've never been to. When our friends back home in Canada asked if we planned to stay, we'd shrug and joke about the weather being better.
