All right the long gas lines -- temporary -- the images that -- so around the world right now aren't getting any better her a lot of this could change overnight if we get power back but even then I'm told that is not so instantaneous.
So could that be a problem for president said just couple of days ago.
We're on it.
We'll deal with it we've got -- -- injuries big Obama supporters managing partner.
You know I think we're in the midst.
Very early in the midst of a tragedy that did of unprecedented moment.
Yeah I did there's no shortage of gasoline there's a shortage of power.
I live in a part of Manhattan -- where we have power and millions of people live a few few blocks south of me and have no power.
I think -- if if this was a Katrina like response where where there was -- it -- visible tragedy.
And you didn't see the governor with his hands on -- -- as you -- -- Governor Christie here for Governor Cuomo here.
A president who has marshaled every femur resource.
-- I said you.
He's so -- -- that not once not reaching.
Well I do you think didn't in this that was the same I agree that the deterrent I would -- date but if if the argument is they're they're -- about what they're doing and and helped as there.
But this woman is saying no it's not I'm not seeing it I'm not my neighbors aren't.
I think the Five Boroughs of Manhattan have New York is a peculiar circumstance I I don't disagree with that woman.
That we've been imbalanced.
Here in New York relative to the four -- other than Manhattan where I happen to live and and we're sitting here today.
But this isn't a macro political events some of the local people what will be called out as to whether we've been fairly treated as it isn't as a region.

But we have water in our tunnels still I had trouble getting over here this afternoon for this show.
-- -- -- -- -- -- water back to Katrina have been disasters ovals are each have their own characteristics what I'm saying is it just seems to me that.
It's it's a story that isn't being as aggressive reported here as stories have in the past.
Well because I think -- here issue is a different FEMA than we saw in Katrina.
We saw a different theme in Irene a year ago and it also hit them -- the Atlantic coast.
I think judgment should be made about their whether we are trying to be responsive.
I don't think -- Earlier this woman saying now I'm not saying they're no it's not some -- are under saying we're quick to seize on what happened.
You know back in 2000 Katrina which was a disaster and at -- levels we just don't see you might see in the media the same.
-- zeal to be fair here.
But you saw in Katrina you saw thousands and thousands.
Of impoverished people stuck at the at the stadium there in New Orleans who simply could not be rescued.
A wave -- I saw one guy getting blamed for presidential standing standing in line for gasoline when there's no powered if to fire up and I Nancy is that -- -- -- is a double standard -- the president wrong.
-- -- Really I reloaded this is it has no doubles no because I think this is again I think there's a different -- -- under way with Mr.
President can -- It's.
Well I don't think there's a double standard -- A Governor Christie I don't think believes there's a double standard okay okay.
