"In your vote for president, how would you rate the importance of Obama's hurricane response?"

42% rated this "important."

Seriously? In an election where major health care legislation and financial solvency weighs in the balance, a photo-op with Christie is rated "important?" This does not say much about the intelligent of 42% of American voters.

Careful. They didn't say they approved of Obama's response. They said his response was an important consideration. They also didn't say it was the "most important" or "exclusive to other issues." It is certainly possible to think that health care, financial solvency, and disaster response are all important issues.

Let's flip that around. What would you say about people who thought the president's reaction to a national disaster wasn't important?
