Welcome back guys -- they'll double time now for today's -- as bad as.
By its bashing Judy Miller is sitting here right next to mean I didn't see Judy and -- -- get away we're talking about the politicizing of sandy you say what.
Well I say that even as politicians swear up and down that this terrible catastrophe is not going to be politicized.
Of course it's good -- to be politicized it is being politicized.
And it will be politicized.
The only issue right now in the debate among the various political analyst is which way this storm is going to cut.
Is it going to cut for the president or for governor Romney.
My own instinct looking at what we've seen so far is -- this is a big break for President Obama.
And for that we have to thank first and foremost.
Our very own New Jersey governor Chris Christie who is BFF best friends for ever.
They when you need 200 million dollars at least from the federal government and when the president volunteers to come to your area and when -- -- your state.
With FEMA money support.
Backups National Guard you have to say thank you Mr.
President and gave him a big bear hug and that.
Gets immediately to the attention of the independent.
Undecided voter whoever wherever they are.
But you know Judy some might say it'll cynicism -- -- mean come -- -- in the middle of the disaster that's -- presidents -- he opens up but that that purse strings here's my wallet.
Here's what I have is the federal government it's all yours Clark launched an end Governor Christie doesn't matter that he -- Republican keynote speaker -- governor Romney's -- Are asking it's campaigning doesn't matter they're like -- -- even.
Governor Christie said.
He doesn't give a you know what a darn about politics or the presidential race -- -- about my people in New Jersey so how can you say it's about politics only.
Well I think Chris Christie is an enormously talented politician and understands that even for him.
And 2016 they're maybe he summer repercussions but beyond that this -- -- to the president are Elena would bring in a very strange way that it reminds.
Americans especially up and down the East Coast in Pennsylvania.
In Virginia those important swing states the important role of the federal government yes it's true.
First responders tend to be locals there are local cops our fire people are EMS people but beyond that the backup -- A disaster like this happens there's just bigger than you can handle.
It's the federal government that's there it's going to be the federal government's FEMA seven billion dollar.
Kitty it's going to pay for some of the reconstruction it's gonna have to go on this is not anything that the best prepared state or city in the nation can handle and it reminds everyone of -- of this important role of the federal government and that's what Barack Obama has been training so I think.
This is a tough one also impeached he's gonna show up in New Jersey he's going to be with Christie he's going to not only.
Be compassionate he'll look compassionate I'm sorry if I sound a little cynical but.
You can't be too cynical when it comes to American -- well.
Ed let me let me get -- you're last up pretty five seconds of thought on this which is.
Any mention FEMA and how at the end of the day the local and and and -- the city in NC government sometimes just can't handle it.
Wind at their places are just completely ravaged -- so -- have been FEMA comes -- so how is it gonna play out this week in a particular.
With governor Romney having sit in the past that he perhaps would cut the funds to -- Well if I were -- were Democratic Party I would be playing the other networks news networks.
An interview with governor Romney would change -- he gave he he gave he and I believe it was June.
He was specifically asked by John King about FEMA and he basically said.
We don't need it.
You know this is a state and local responsibility the private sector is the best way to handle this -- indicated that FEMA was something that he was gonna cut.
I think I would be playing that add again and again and again and they may very well be doing and will be watching will be covering this weekend I'll be on enough Fox News Channel with -- -- -- will.
