McCain attacks Obama on Libya at storm relief event

When Mitt Romney spoke to supporters in Ohio Tuesday morning, he kept his brief remarks focused on Hurricane Sandy and spent most of his time talking to volunteers who brought supplies. At a similar "storm relief and volunteer appreciation" event in Ontario, Ohio Tuesday evening, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was more partisan. 

"This president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the American people or he is so grossly incompetent that he is not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. It's either one of them," McCain told Romney volunteers, according to NBC News.

He added, "I think it's interesting to note that when there was a success, such as when, thank God, we were able to get [Osama] bin Laden, the administration poured out every single detail, even details that put American lives in danger,"
