My comments were not good or bad, except against Debbie Wasserman. It's all politics.
Perhaps you don't care who came first, but any concern/compassion given to someone who just lost everything or a thank-you to the first responders
does help. People remember who extends a hand and who merely gives lip service.
And yes, providing encouragement and support to victims of a disaster is something politicians do to give the impression of caring for the suffering
in the U.S. and it does seem to place them in a favorable light in the public eye at least for a moment.
