Armed police and a park ranger emerge from a flooded neighborhood resulting from Hurricane Isaac in Crown Point, along the road to LaFitte, outside of New Orleans, on August 31, 2012 in Louisiana, where Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney rushed to visit in a bid to burnish his presidential credentials ahead of his November battle with President Barack Obama. Coming off the back of a rousing Republican convention, Romney sought to build momentum by taking his new campaign plane to New Orleans, where rescue crews are clearing up after Hurricane Isaac unleashed a torrential downpour.
