Appearing on the networks this morning, Christie, for the third day in a row, heaped praise on Obama’s handling of the storm. “The President has been outstanding in this,” he told the “Today” show. On “Morning Joe,” he said, “It’s been very good working with the President. He and his Administration have been coördinating with us. It’s been wonderful.” Speaking on CNN, Christie said that he had been mightily impressed by Obama’s accessibility throughout the crisis. “He gave me his number at the White House, told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it.” Christie also pointed out that Obama didn’t once bring up politics in their conversations, and added, “If he’s not bringing it up, you can be sure that people in New Jersey are not worried about that, primarily if one of the guys running isn’t.”
...meanwhile...

Appearing on Fox News—yes, Fox—Christie scoffed at the idea of Romney making a visit to New Jersey in order to inspect the damage. “I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” he said. “I’ve got a job to do here in New Jersey that’s much bigger than Presidential politics, and I could care less about any of that stuff.”

So, a Governor doesn't use a storm for political means, therefore, you use his not being political to be political.

One week before you come down with Romney Derangement Syndrome. Enjoy.

it should be interesting to see what Christie is saying by Saturday.

He is a blunt kind of guy, and he's probably very serious that he is looking out for his people the way he is supposed to, and not thinking much about presidential politics.

Looking out for his people and his state.... he needs money for his state and obama controls the fed purse stings.

Let's hope after this election that the GOP has had enough of NE Republicans at the top of the ticket.

I think the better headline from all of this is the fact Romney has refused 14 times (and counting) the question about him wanting to eliminate FEMA. It must be the fact that FEMA is doing such a good job that must be killing him inside. Combine this with Gov. Christie's glowing endorsement of Obama and the Romney campaign is speechless.

However, the best response from the Romney side came on CNN today when a Republican strategist says that it is "smart for Romney to not be talking about his previous comments to disband FEMA" because that would lead to a "NATIONAL DISCUSSION." Apparently discussing important views is a bad thing. Probably also has to do with something that his position on FEMA is untenable in the wake of a national disaster in which FEMA is doing its job.

This is just another reason as to why I dislike Romney. As a government employee for my entire adult life and who has worked for very little pay and done my job well, I hate it that Republicans view us as lazy and ineffective. The truth is the government is full of hardworking individuals trying to do their job with the few resources they have. Republicans would get a lot more votes if they would stop hating the people they depend on for a job and who actually implement their policy.

What a ridiculous thing to say. You've sucked off the national teet your whole life, say stupid, ungrateful things like this and wonder why those working in the private sector think you're lazy leeches?

If Romney had any balls, he'd stand up and declare his intention to close FEMA and getthe federal government out of the business of making up for human stupidity.

I work for the government now. I used to work in the private sector. No doubt I work with some great people. However, "effective" is not a word I would use to describe what the government does.

I think the problem is that you have worked for the government for your entire adult life. Get out there and work in the private sector for a while. It may seem cold and calous to be treated in such a way that you are actually held accountable for not just knowing your job but knowing your job + more, but in the end the customer is more satisfied than when dealing with a government agency. The customer gets a better product. Could you imagine what wold happen if the government were responsible for delivering your newspaper? Or for providing your internet access? You'd have to fill out 4 different forms, submitted to 6 different offices just to report a problem with your service!

In the private sector, it's the customer that matters. In the government, it's the agency that matters.

I've had it with Christie. The events he orchestrated today had nothing to do with the people of New Jersey. It was all about self-promotion and gratification. Unfortunately for everyone who has worked so hard to get rid of the fool currently occupying the WH, Christie put his own self-aggrandizement ahead of his party and the nation's well being. By teeing up such an easy photo-op and sound bite for Obama to pretend he gives a sheeyat about the peons he lords over, Christie's unnecessary pandering to POTUS today borders on treasonous. Christie has done nothing for the people of NJ other than improving the chances of them living under another four years of socialist creep.

That's why I no longer consider myself a republican. The party has been taken over by gluttonous authoritarian RINO's.

Christie has his nose shoved up Obama's butt searching for the obama stash so that he can get the power back on to the local KFC. He needs a couple of whole fried chickens and a diet Coke.

Now there is actually a liberal judgemental atittude coming through.

Most all of that was hate for Christie based on his weight. Nothing else seemed to matter as much.

Yep we need to get rid of FEMA! Reduce it to giving advice only to the states! Leave all the moneys garnered in taxes IN THE STATES to use for there own uses(disasters)!
As I said in another thread. Notify all welfare/unemployed persons within the area to report to local unemployment offices for work details to continue to get there benefits. Don't show-up or can't prove you can't work no benefits for you! Great way to cut unemployment numbers don't you think? With 23 million unemployed I'm sure we could clean up rebuild the NE in a few months!:rofl:

It's over.

Boy zero coptered out of there after all of 90 mins.
He's off to Vegas. Flood duty fulfilled.
Fatso is back to letting old ladies slobber on his shoulder.
Both candidates are on the campaign trail full tilt.

Its the election and more questions about Benghazi. By the weekend the cleanup stories will only be on the local news and in decline.

No one will remember what Christie said next Tuesday. Unless you're a complete idiot, there is nothing in the past week that qualifies either candidate in any way past what we already know about the two and the past 4 years of hell…nothing changed that.

Prez did his job (for ONCE!)
Gov did his job, was polite and cordial the way you'd expect someone to be to someone who came in and offered help. Nothing was off the reservation, really.
Zero will likely never be in NJ again.

My take was that Christie basically told the truth - the Obama was helping them out and Romney, not being an elected official with any power to help them out was (a) irrelevant and (b) not using the storm for political purposes. That is somewhere between neutral and positive for Romney.

Looks to me like he said what he meant and he didn't put Romney down at all.


Oh yeah...and flintlocker posts another fail. Again: he's a Republican playing devil's advocate. There is no other explanation for his posts.

Then flintlocker and others...his alter egos, perhaps...are incapable of understanding and, to our amusement, think they have stumbled onto a story about a Republican insulting Romney.:upeyes:

Limbaugh saw it differently.

I haven't heard the governor of West Virginia praising Obama. I haven't heard the governor of Ohio praising Obama. Tennessee got hit, too. I haven't heard the governor of Tennessee praising Obama, Bill Haslam. He's a Republican. Well, so is Christie, what am I talking about? Chris Christie's the only Republican out there not just praising Obama, I mean, let's just put it this way. Is it wrong for one man to love another man? But that man love out there, it's isolated to the state of New Jersey. Well, just telling you what I've observed casually with my busy broadcast eyes and my cochlear implant- aided-ears.

I was making a point to G29reload who said only the Obama trolls were discussing Christie's speech. It was tongue in cheek showing how ludicrous his stance is.

I agree with your assessment. And Christie is not a toll for saying it and Fox is not a troll for reporting it.

Christie put his responsibility as a governor and the good of his state above political rhetoric. He proved he is a man of principle and can be trusted to do what is right.

It's fine to praise a president for being "presidential," it's too bad that the president decided to be "presidential" for the first time a week before the elections.

None of this means that Chris Christie and the president are buddies, now.

Let's compare O's reaction to Sandy to his reaction to BP. Then tell me it's not about the election.

As far a Christie goes, yes...Obama = $$ for the state. Christie is doing his job. Just as Ryan was when he requested stimulus money for his state, even though he opposed it. It was his job, too. But I think Christie is taking it a bit far. I also think his RNC speach was a huge let down. With friends like him... ;-)

How is what you just said any different from what German government workers said back in 1939?

This man is responsible for the worst economy this country has ever seen. If you did your job this same way, shouldn't you be fired?


What has this man done to deserve another 4 years?
