Stephen Colbert: Obama stole Romney’s ‘date to disaster-prom’ (video)

Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" were off the air the first two days of this week because of Hurricane Sandy's impact on the East Coast. But both programs were back on the air Wednesday, and each explored the the intersection of politics and the storm.

Stewart examined what happens when you remove politics from governing while Colbert looked at the way Mitt Romney put his campaign on hold (or did he?) and President Obama's trip to New Jersey to survey storm damage with Gov. Chris Christie (R).

Did Obama steal Romney's "date to disaster-prom?" Find out below.
