-- Washington DC bureau is Robert C O'Brien who is a former senior advisor.
Two Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and from -- LA Leslie Marshall nationally syndicated host.
All of the intriguingly named Leslie Marshall show good -- see you both.
Could be good to see -- I mean here let -- -- we view Leslie just briefly on this sanity relief bill.
Is that going to be voted on in the house today.
That a lot of politicians here in the northeast complaining about the speed -- -- -- -- -- -- with which this has been done.
But only really moving any slower than we would do in other federal -- bills are is this just getting more focused because -- the northeast west so many -- the national media hang him.
But when you mean being in northeast air Boston -- myself we have bigger mouth -- yeah.
Exactly we care it's gonna care whales left it at face and a Governor Christie is -- -- -- -- that I think that some of them but quite frankly now I I seem more.
-- foot dragging here.
Bob based on politics and one thing I I I in the past been very.
On honored as an American -- to see is what we have a disaster we put our.
Our partisanship or politics aside we come together for the best interest of the people as human beings.
Not looking at them as purely voters and how is this going to affect me and I and I see a lot -- I mean look at John Boehner I mean.
I think it's reprehensible that you know he really stalled the -- because he wanted to make sure he got you know that the Tea Party votes for him to be.
We elected speaker you know delayed -- said OK now have a vote you know on Friday we still don't have a vote.
And and that that's purely politics and the American people see that American people are Smart and Robert Robert would you would you agree that there's politics in this.
Well I agree -- politics and what's happened with the sandy -- -- -- for GOP members of the house and for Americans I'm from California back in Washington today we've gone through earthquakes.
Our hearts just go out the folks in Staten Island and others you watch their homes being destroyed.
And everybody wants to help and that's the goal Republicans in the house.
The politics or played here -- on this is what people might find interest in isn't the end initial sandy.
Relief for fisheries and Mississippi in Alaska I don't think they were affected by hurricane sandy.
It had doubt landscaping for trees on private property.
So it was loaded up with pork and word and Aaron now.
Where there's not enough money to go around the government spent forty -- forty cents more than every dollar in -- And so we need to get relief to the folks who suffered.
And then in the hurricane and and they rightly deserve that that aid from their fellow citizens but we need to make sure the politics the earmarking and the pork.
Is stripped out of that and dealt with at a at a different time if they if the fisheries need to be rebuilt in Mississippi.
We're -- have committee hearings that we ought to you know decided that is -- -- but it shouldn't be lumped in.
It to the relief effort for the folks who really suffered with -- sandy all right.
