He -- for the first time ever actually agree with the mayor eating is bad enough trying to get around right now.
-- -- -- Why it's a nightmare.
It's horrible all this is -- -- it presidential -- grade blocking off a whole section of this and look at.
That is the worst thing I've ever -- but your disagree with me.
Is the very brave Chicago Alderman Joseph -- welcome back to show often.

The mayor said quote I love this loved to have them but we've got lots of things -- do you think that was reassured.
No I mean look I mean they would be -- the president offered a common.
And as a local official I respect the fact that Mayor Bloomberg.
Respond in the way that he did -- but let let's remember.
President Bush was criticized by both parties.
When he flew over -- Katrina and didn't stop so.
I think today -- Melissa would have been if the President Obama didn't offer to come here.
We'd be talking about why the president this New York why didn't offer to go there while he's got to stay wrapped up politically.
And he's just doing his -- for political -- so we offer to go.
The mayor said hey we've got a lot going on were busy.
Pomp and and decline that I think the -- made a mistake any kind of president offers to come visit on the ground I think you should take that.
But that's mayor Bloomberg's choice and you know we just disagree while he did -- but at least I understand why why did it.
Yeah I -- they understand why he said that little part at the end because all of a sudden I thought you were on to disagree with me but I had won you over before we even started the whole argument which we I mean I don't put you know beyond the realm of possibility by.
I mean you would've expected if you're New York City did you do have a -- here you did you happen to seek we put up the traffic again I mean.
Did you how should -- what's going on come on -- it is.
But come on mom this is not -- -- this is not the worst attack street fat I know you're at ground zero and am looking out your window -- -- but we've had.
You know major catastrophes major things have happened or Syrian president as of common -- worked out our country is good enough.
Our systems are good enough for infrastructure isn't enough to do with what President Obama possibly add to this scene below I mean what would I don't know why am -- to ask logic.
I think that's a better question for your friend Governor Christie who support Republican -- -- toll supporter Mitt Romney that has come online -- glorious.
Praise for the president and the way he's handled this this catastrophe the way he's dealt with that the ways not politicize for -- Governor Christie just a week ago or just a week ago -- your -- Governor Christie said that the Obama administration could I've never met the man couldn't really couldn't couldn't believe it couldn't leave it.
I'm so -- I was mistaken you for Ann Coulter and Coulter yeah you know -- -- what do you -- you know -- deadline and you both conservative pundits.
All -- and I am not a conservative prime that you try I don't know libertarian real reality always we always have -- as -- -- -- Gerry Adams newscaster conducting at this outstanding.

Before I was -- two years ago I was twelve years as vice president of them.
I'm a very successful private.
-- and design industries -- -- very very pro business yeah that's always a talk some more but on this subject.
You know I think I think Governor Christie.
Pretty much solidified what the president has done.
You had Mitt Romney in Ohio which is affected -- kind of affect the same -- Chicago was.
-- this storm -- -- canned goods to the Red Cross when the Red Cross said don't give us your canned goods so I think that that's that the contrast we have in this.

I understand why he did that but I also understand my the president said I wanna come in New York and I'd like here you.
Yeah are very presidential during campaign -- standing out a disaster are offering her help I mean it's the best way to get -- -- soliciting campaign perspective.
It's a fantastic idea.
Let's be honest Melissa and having New York's unemployment I mean he doesn't have to go to New York for political reasons tell -- that's always an important.
It doesn't have to go to New Jersey -- for political reasons you don't ET Al hi it was a place to go for political reasons and one of these candidates did that and was Mitt Romney.
