Obama Visits Tuscaloosa, Alabama After Deadly Storms
One of the President's duties is to appear on the scene of a national disaster to show sympathy and to speak about what the United States will do to help during the rebuilding process. This video is clearly framed in a way that will help Obama's 2012 campaign. The video shows him eagerly shaking hands with residents, speaking with them personally, speaking to an elderly woman in a shelter, and picking up a small child in a shelter. These images are photo opps for President Obama, which show his compassion. These make him look like a hands-on leader who is not above talking to the average American.
