Bill Maher speaking about the concert to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy “And they also, on Fox News, questioned the timing of the benefit.  They said, what’s the rush?  I know, when will liberals get it?  Storm victims do not want food and blankets, they want answers about Benghazi.”

Fox News “Why the timing?  Why is that today?  Half the state of New Jersey doesn’t have power and can’t even watch this concert.  Is this more political, is this let’s get this thing on TV before the election to make President Obama look Presidential?  Or is it more for to help out victims?

Other Fox News pundit “It does look like they’re trying to squeeze things in.  Keep in mind that you’ve got Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, both supported the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and in fact  Mr Springsteen, I believe,  has been traveling with the President of the United States.  Uh where are the conservative performers?  There aren’t any on the list that I saw.”

First Pundit “This looks like a rush job because the election is in two maybe three days after the concert.”

Second pundit again “Is it a hurricane benefit, or a concert for Obama?”

First Pundit “I don’t know.”

Comment from Tim – Last night during the show the Red Cross’ website could not handle all of the traffic generated by the show.  Donations are pouring in.  Of course, Springsteen and Bon Jovi are sons of New Jersey.  Personally, I think the true nature of the concert can be understood here:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie On Morning Joe on MSNBC Tuesday October 30 speaking about hurricane Sandy:

“The President’s been great.  I spoke to him three times.  He called me for the last time at midnight last night.  He asked me what I needed.  I said, if you could expedite the major disaster declaration without all the normal FEMA mumbo jumbo.  He got right on it.  I got a call from FEMA at 2am for me to answer a couple of questions and then this morning, I understand, he signed the major disaster declaration for New Jersey.  The President has been all over this and he deserves great credit.  I’ve been on the phone with him, like I said, yesterday personally three times.  He gave me his number at the White House and told me to call him if I need anything, and he absolutely means it.  It’s been very good working with the President, and he and his administration have been coordinating with us great.  It’s been wonderful.”
