Yeah, Christie is saying, "You're doing one heckova job, Barry!"...but Obama hasn't done anything but hugged a few survivers, and "felt their pain." I am sure Chubs will change his tune when, and if, FEMA comes up short, like it did during Katrina. However, as one who when through Tropical Storm Agnes, forty years ago, I can tell you that if you are to go through a natural disaster, do it during an election year when the incumbant is up for reelection. You would be surprised how wide the door to the treasury can get. Of course, this could be apples and oranges...FEMA hadn't been spawned yet,, so the government was friendlier towards private efforts of religious groups and other non-profits aid providers back then..
