Bloomberg doesn't want to “dis” Obama, but doesn't need his help. A presidential motorcade probably wouldn't help New York right now.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon that he had all but told President Obama not to come to New York in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

"What I pointed out to him is that we'd love to have him, but we've got lots of things to do," Bloomberg said.

"I'm not trying to dis him," Bloomberg said. "But I know he had planned a trip to New Jersey and I said that's fine; it represents the whole region, people understand the storm."

Bloomberg said he'd spoken earlier with the president and with the White House Chief of Staff.

Obama is planning a trip to New Jersey on Wednesday to survey storm damage.
