Chris, you remember the story and the saying President Ronald Reagan used to tell on the stump:
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”
The same here with Hurricane Sandy.
Folks are seeing first hand that “Big Government” even in Blue States is not always the answer to their problems.
On the other hand, Governor Chris Christie who was sketchy for re-election as New Jersey Governor may be winning favor with his constituents.
