NY Mayor Bloomberg endorses Obama, citing Hurricane Sandy, climate change

The New York Times reports that NYC Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said  that Hurricane Sandy had reshaped his thinking about the presidential campaign, and he announced that he was endorsing President Obama.
Bloomberg, a political independent in this third term leading New York City, has been sharply critical of both Mr. Obama, a Democrat, and Mitt Romney, the president’s Republican rival, saying that both men have failed to candidly confront the problems afflicting the nation.
