Bad News for New Orleans, Political Scientists, and Romney

And Obama is the winner! Romney will try to “reintroduce” himself to the country while the country is watching Obama touring the wreckage from the hurricane.  How does the whole convention not become effectively diminished – if not scrapped altogether or delayed until the weekend (is this even logistically possible?) – if there is a hard landing on Wednesday in NOLA?  Meanwhile, students with Thursday and Friday political science classes will have to go to class instead of enjoying a long Labor Day weekend (I’d say that is a win for the students, but then again I’m a prof).

  1. BTW, the possible political ramifications of such a scenario isn’t nearly as important as the real human costs a bad hurricane could have. So I really hope the hurricane weakens before landing on NOLA.

  2. I predict minimal negative impact for Romney, negligible positive impact for Obama, none of which will last.

    My hopes and wishes are as you say: that the storm weakens considerably before making landfall.
