For a while much of America didn't believe Hurricane Sandy had done as much damage as it did. I was one of the doubters. I thought more than a little bit of the spin was about grabbing some federal bucks while the opportunity arose. I was wrong about Sandy and it many Americans changed their minds as well about the extent of damage and the motivation behind Christy's request for massive federal aid. New Jersey was pounded. The people of New Jersey need help. The nation knows this. The federal government can easily find 60 billion to aid New Jersey. The crazies in the GOP won't even talk about it.
All this simply reinforces the fact that the GOP is out of touch; does not have its hand on the pulse of the nation. It is now biting the hand that feeds it.
