On rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Sandy….
New Jersey and Queens and all that, they're gonna be rebuilt. But not because of a president. Not even because of a governor. They're gonna be rebuilt not because of any politician. These areas are gonna be rebuilt because of people, the people who make the country work, local communities, neighbors helping neighbors, churches, you name it. Individuals and families will pick themselves up. They won't wait around. There are not very many people in this country that wait around for the government, but New Orleans was one of them. Well, that's what liberalism does to people. They wait. They don't take charge of their own lives. This is not gonna happen here. This disaster illustrates what a president cannot do. This disaster illustrates what a government cannot do. And to me that's what this election's all about. Government's become way too big, way too important, way too big a factor.
