(CHRISTIAN POST) — Anyone who has ever been in show business can immediately spot when an answer to a question is spontaneous or staged.
Earlier today, Obama set up his teleprompter to address the nation regarding the impact of Hurricane Sandy that is roaring its way up the East Coast. It is described by weather professionals as the most powerful storm in history to hit the East Coast.
In a beautifully scripted account of the storm, a question was asked of Obama, the only question allowed; "How will this storm affect the election?"

In another beautifully scripted response, Obama said, "The election is the last thing on my mind. The first and foremost concern is the safety of the people...." and yakity yak. That question and answer were no doubt safely on the teleprompter. It was a staged question and answer.
The clincher is that [in] a fleeting view of the attendees of the press briefing, the one who asked the question appeared to be David Axelrod, the architect of the Obama campaign. A second quick view of the attendees seemed to confirm that indeed, it was Axelrod. This holds true to Obama's slogan: Never let a good crisis go to waste.
