Haley Barbour: Hurricane Sandy "Broke Romney's Momentum"

In what appears to be a preemptive excuse for a Romney loss, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour said today on CNN's State of the Union that Hurricane Sandy "broke Romney's momentum." Watch (starting at 1:00):

BARBOUR: The hurricane is what broke Romney’s momentum. I don’t think there’s any question about it. Any day that the news media is not talking about jobs and the economy, taxes and spending, deficits and debt, Obamacare and energy, is a good day for Barack Obama. When you had a blackout on all of those issues that started about last Saturday and lasted until about yesterday — that is what really was good for Barack Obama. Now whether it will be good enough remains to be seen.

In a measure of twisted logic, perhaps those who hide behind religion and fundamentalism in support of a right-wing agenda could take comfort in understanding that God believed a Romney presidency would be far too risky for a fragile world that he sent a storm of immense intensity to prevent it. In other words: it was God's will. Now, don't you feel better?

Somehow I don't think the right-wing fundamentalists will spin their theological interpretation of natural events that way.
