POTUS: Damned If You Do...

President Obama visited flooded Paterson, NJ, this past week.

It's interesting that if a President travels out of Washington, DC, to another area of the country (or even another area of the world), he is criticized for not staying in Washington and working.

If he stays in Washington, he is criticized for not getting out and seeing other areas.

If he visits an area hit by a natural disaster, he is wasting time and money and causing problems. If he doesn't visit, he is too insular and doesn't understand what is happening outside of the Beltway.

One forum even had commentators arguing about whose flood was worse as the President should have visited the worst one.

Can't win.
