I can't read your message, but can see your title. and I have been listening, and didn't hear Christie say anything about Romney, but did say he didn't gie a damn about the campain.

I am so glad that our president has stepped up, to do the right thing.

What is needed right now is our support and prayers for those in this area.

Right on Luanne! I agree 100% with what you write here.

Christie is doing a good job and is putting politics aside. Those states in the Northeast have their hands full.
They need all the cooperation they can get.

Even amazon.com is asking people to donate to Red Cross. It is SOP. Of course, this year it is still tax deductible.

I'm glad that Governor Christie and President Obama are doing their jobs.

I always get a bit annoyed when people praise others for doing what they are supposed to do.

This is a huge natural disaster and politics has no business in it.

Take care,
Mike

Take care,

When I was working we often got praise for doing a good job. Many times the company gave us a bonus for meeting a crucial deadline on delivering a product.

I praise both President Obama and Governor Christie for working together and putting aside political differences.

I haven't been here for days on purpose - but I see that when the hounds are away the hens will play (us that how that goes)...

That is a blatant lie - Christie did NOT say he didn't give a damn about Romney - he said he didn't give a "damn about POLITICS at a moment like this."

Lies lies lies....

And of course, take things out of context. He was delighted with the President's response. Rmoney's of course, was that it is a state issue. Step away from the twinkie and fix it yourself.

Manuel,

It's just a saying. No harm intended.

Lies lies lies....
He meant that a photo shoot going through the destruction and being photographed with Romney for political gain at this time was not his primary concern. He wasn't turning his back on Romney, just would not do a photo shoot when his state was in such despair.
And of course he praised Obama. Cristie presented his case to Obama, and Obama agreed to his wants and needs. But, even though Obama said he would put campaining on the sideline, that really was him campaining using those words. He knew what he was doing when he said that. That really closed the door for Romney, he does not have the power to enact the things Obama can as a president.
