Well, maybe. But let's remember that it's still early. The hurricane was two days ago. The cleanup is ongoing. Over the next few days you may see a lot of stories with headlines that look like this:
State troopers deployed as tensions boil at gas stations in Sandy's wake
New Yorkers in fuel scramble as storm-hit pumps dry up
I'm just saying. This could play out in a number of different ways. If people start connecting Obama's energy policies and gas prices and the lack of gasoline in NY and NJ after the hurricane and (possibly) riots and violence surrounding the latter.... well, that wouldn't play into the Obama as the "steady leader" in a crisis narrative, now, would it?
