The Clintons and their allies have not been shy about politicizing disasters, natural and man-made. President Clinton turned the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing into a sustained attack on Rush Limbaugh. Clinton-era officials including former FEMA head James Lee Witt helped turn Hurricane Katrina into a political issue against President George W. Bush despite the fact (or maybe, because of the fact) that the failures to deal with that storm were primarily local.

Now, Bill Clinton is sticking to his baser political instincts again, politicizing Hurricane Sandy ahead of its expected strike while speaking at a rally Sunday for Connecticut Democratic Senate candidate Chris Murphy.

On the campaign trail in Waterbury Connecticut yesterday, former President Bill Clinton used the threat of Hurricane Sandy to warn voters of the importance of the election next week.

“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”

The federal government is using very strong language in its Sandy warnings, including “if you do not survive.”
