That was exactly the thing I was going to say but self edited. It happened right here in Dayton too.

Ohio, the butt of all jokes for the next 48 hours. :/

As for Romney or Obama going into the disaster areas right now it's idiotic to do that. The security and logistic issues shut down everything and right now they just need to stay the hell away and let recovery happen. Christie actually commented about that in a retort to Giuliani's remarks berating Obama for not being front and center attending to the disaster in person rather than being on the campaign trail the last 4 days.
