Bill Maher is contrary to anything good and decent. His only purpose in speaking to keep the conflict going. Christie got hammered with a huge human crisis. His only problem is that he actually expected the feds to to anything that would actually be needed, Obama or not. The biggest problem Christie has is that too many in NJ feel entitled, whereby the tendancy is to do nothing for themselves. He's got quite the dilemma.
Note the difference between New Orleans and Mississippi/Alabama after Katrina. MS and AL folks got back to work. In NO, they're still wondering what happened.
