I saw Chris Christie hugging it up with Jerry Jones in the Cowboys' box today. The Cowboys are division rivals of the NY Giants, who play their home games in New Jersey, where Christie is governor. It is the equivalent of Nathan Deal whooping it up with the owner of the New Orleans Saints. Of course, Christie has done this sort of thing before. He slobbered all over President Obama just weeks before the 2012 election. Many feel that display helped undercut Mitt Romney. This after Christie gave the keynote speech at the convention. If Christie were to become president, I would expect his first state dinner to be in honor of the leadership of ISIS.

Under Pressure From the White House, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Sunday night that medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa but did not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income. Mr. Cuomo’s decision capped a frenzied weekend of behind-the-scenes pleas from administration officials, who urged him and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey to reconsider the mandatory quarantine they had announced on Friday. Aides to President Obama also asked other governors and mayors to follow a policy based on science, seeking to stem a steady movement toward more stringent measures in recent days at the state level.

Although I didn't want President Obama reelected, stories like this mean nothing to me because it's in the past! Yes, we all know that President Obama has been one of the worst Presidents in recent American history. Yes, we know he lies about Benghazi and allowed a U.S. Ambassador to be captured, tortured and killed. Yes, we know he lied about Obamacare. Yes, we know he has allowed Russia to impose its expansionist ideology on the Ukraine. Yes, we know that he broke our promise to Poland and discontinued the missile defense system. Yes, we know that he was wrong about how his economic programs would turn America around and create jobs. And Yes, we know he continues to be indifferent to Israel which feeds the aggression of radical Islamic nations towards the Jewish state. So we know all this. The question is how will we make it right in the next election? Hillary Clinton? Really? Chris Christie? Seriously? Where is our next Washington, Lincoln, Teddy, or Reagan? Let's forget the "should haves" and focus .. ...
Late Night Jokes: More Cantor Banter _ The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon • House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost Virginia's Republican primary to a Tea Party candidate. And get this. It was revealed that Cantor's campaign spent more money at steakhouses than his opponent spent on his entire campaign. Or as one of my guests tonight put it, "So? What's wrong with that?" Hey, I'm talking about Chris Rock, not Chris Christie. • The New York Rangers beat the L.A. Kings in Game 4 last night to stay alive in the Stanley Cup Finals. So they now trail 3 games to 1. Or as they say in hockey, they're hanging on by the skin of their tooth. • Today was the start of the World Cup. It's that special time of the year when Americans in bars shrug, "Well, I guess we're watching this now." • Father’s Day is just a few days away. And in a new interview President Obama said that he is a fun dad who teeters on the edge of embarrassing his kids. Because nothing says you're a fun dad like SAYING you're a fun dad. ...
Political humor. Karl Rove thinks we shouldn’t have Hillary Clinton in the White House because she fell and hit her head a couple years ago, spent three days in the hospital, and maybe she has brain damage. You know, I don’t recall the Republicans being this concerned with mental fitness during the years when Reagan was talking to house plants in the White House. Yesterday Chris Christie said he thinks it would be fun to run against Jeb Bush for the Republican presidential nomination. While Jeb Bush said it would be fun just to watch Chris Christie run. Today President Obama took his 1,001st flight aboard Air Force One. And they still made him take his shoes off at security. President Obama was touring New York sites in need of repair. He wants to spend money on the infrastructure. For example, the Port Authority needs fixing. And the Tappan Zee Bridge, where the renovation is already finishing up way ahead of schedule – like Obama’s second term Aba deya bedya bedaya, That's all folks!!!
Turns out President Obama and Chris Christie were childhood friends!
Watched the 9/11 Museum dedication Thursday, I think.to me noticeably absent was George W. Former NYC mayors there of course, President Obama, Chris Christie, Hillary and Bill.but not George.this is not a criticism as it may sound.I was just wondering. Seems like he certainly would have been invited.
Hi, This summer, Rutgers University scientists (backed with funding from the National Science Foundation) are planning to blast the ocean with sound pulses louder than the noise made when a jet engine takes off. There's no question that these sounds will have a terrible impact on all marine life from dolphins to whales to sea turtles. Plus, tourism at the Jersey Shore and the fishing industry will certainly be adversely affected. I just signed a Care2 petition telling New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Rutgers University President Robert Barchi and President Obama to stop seismic testing off the New Jersey coast. Will you sign too? Here's a link to the petition: you.

Comedian Joel McHale mocked everyone from President Obama to Chris Christie in a blistering roast at the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Following are his 10 best jokes of the night. 1. "Mr. President—or, as Paul Ryan would call you, another inner city minority taking advantage of the federal government to feed and house your family." 2. "It's an honor to be here in Washington, D.C., the city that started the whole crack-smoking mayor craze." 3. "Jeb Bush might announce that he's running. Wow, another Bush in the White House. Is it already time for our every-10-years surprise for Iraq?" 4. "As it stands right now, the Republican nominee will either be Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, or a bag of flour with Ronald Reagan's face drawn on it." 5. "Chelsea Clinton is pregnant… so in nine months, we will officially have a sequel to 'Bad Grandpa.'… It also raises the question… when the baby is born, do you give Bill Clinton a cigar?" 6. "Between Rob Ford, Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz, you just want to tell C ...
At CPAC just now, Chris Christie gave a 15 minute speech where he attacked the media, defended the Koch brothers and railed against Washington, DC.

"President Obama has convinced the leaders of the world's biggest economies to move the G-8 summit out of Russia this summer and meet in Brussels instead. Then Vladimir Putin said, 'All good. By summer, Brussels will be part of Russia.'" –Jimmy Fallon "There are reports coming out that Chris Christie has lost 100 pounds since having lap-band surgery. It's a pretty big loss – you know, for my monologue." –Jimmy Fallon "They've kicked Vladimir Putin out of the G-8, the most powerful economic organization. So now he won't be getting his G-8 jacket. He won't be getting the G-8 mug. And he's not going to get the G-8 tote bag." –David Letterman "Ukraine is in a lot of trouble, and I was thinking about this. The only guy who can turn things around for Ukraine — Phil Jackson." –David Letterman
Sheldon Adelson is a multi billionaire who spent over 100 million dollars in 2012 trying to defeat President Obama. This week in Los Vegas he is holding auditions for Republican presidential candidates for 2016. This billionaire will spend what ever is necessary to buy a President. If he is able to get Chris Christie, Jed Bush, Scott Walker or any other Republican elected, do you think they will represent the people or Sheldon Adelson. I wonder, are all Republicans bought and paid for. Register and vote.
Political marriage between Chris Christie and President Obama breaks up...
Just because Gov. Chris Christie, who was notably banned from the Conservative Political Action Conference last year, spoke at the event Thursday doesn't mean he is the conservative media's new darling. Hardly. While the New Jersey Governor drew loud applause from the audience during his address, which focused on Republicans pushing for their ideas not against their opponents, right-wing media voices at the conference say that won't translate to support if he seeks the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Some pointed to his well-known embrace of President Obama after Hurricane Sandy in the lead-up to the 2012 election, which may have played a role in the decision by CPAC organizers not to invite him last year. Others declared him insufficiently opposed to *** marriage to garner their support. "I don't think he will be the nominee anyway," said Tim Constantine, a conservative radio talk show host. "There are ups and downs, it's the nature of politics that he will be knocked down. Chris Christie is ...

TODAY IN ONE PARAGRAPH: Crimea scheduled a referendum on whether it will secede from Ukraine and join Russia, but President Obama said it would violate international law and would not be recognized by the U.S. Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and others spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference, and Mitch Mcconnell brought a gun. Russia is pushing for the International Monetary Fund to go ahead with a 2010 set of reforms without U.S. approval. An ABC News/Washington Post poll puts Hillary Clinton far ahead of her possible Republican challengers in 2016, and shows that Jeb Bush's last name might be holding him back. But Bernie Sanders says he would be a better president than anyone else, including Clinton.
At this point I'm thinking House Speaker John Boehner has no pride left. Credibility disappeared long ago. Gail Collins at the NYT. "For a while it looked as if the House was going to pass a modest version of the same. But that was long ago. Back, um, last week. That was when the Republicans came up with a series of principles for reform during a group retreat. Principles that, Boehner said, “our members by and large support, put together by the leadership team. And they believe it.” He made that last comment Thursday, about three seconds before he announced that nothing was going to happen. Pop Quiz. Complete the following sentence: John Boehner dropped the plan to pass immigration reform in 2014, and blamed his sudden, abrupt, U-turn on: A) The people who closed down the George Washington Bridge without Gov. Chris Christie ever knowing a single thing about it. B) Russian oligarchs. C) Justin Bieber. D) President Obama. Yes! Everybody got this one right! John Boehner says the House Republicans won . ...
Chris Christie is heading to CPAC next month to address the conservative crazies, after snubbing him last year for his perceived coziness with President Obama following the Hurricane Sandy disaster. The Conservative Political Action Conference is a veritable who's who in the GOP elite and presidential hopefuls, sending a clear message that in the eyes of CPAC, the bridgegate scandal has failed to knock the shine of his Kripsy Kreme. You have to wonder if he'll still be their golden boy if the circle of scandal continues to tighten around his cold, snowy office. Port Authority official David Wildstein has released new information suggesting that the Governor knew much more than he is admitting about the crippling bridge closures his staff allegedly ordered behind his back, without his consent or knowledge. Still a pretty big pill to swallow, isn't it? Camp Christie reacted - predictably - with a slam on Wildstein's character, stretching all the way back to an incident when he was a 16-year-old high schoo . ...

The national media trumpet the controversy involving New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with an enthusiasm they never showed for any of the various scandals involving President Obama, with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews even summoning the specter of Watergate: “The more we learn about Chris Christie, the more he does look like Richard Nixon.” Also: the same reporters who eagerly handed the microphone over to disgruntled ex-Bush officials to criticize a Republican President during wartime now find it objectionable that a new book from ex-Defense Secretary Robert Gates criticizes President Obama, with NBC’s Matt Lauer asking Gates if he was being “either dangerous or dishonorable,” while CNN’s Jim Acosta channeled how “the memoir is seen by some critics as an act of betrayal.” And on MSNBC, Chris Matthews revs up the liberal fearmongering machine, saying if Republicans win this fall, it launch “the return of something like Jim Crow days… literacy tests and poll taxes and all the rest “If I a ...
THE SUNDAY SHOW RODEO ROUNDUP (via Politico Playbook, c/o Matt Mackowiak): The "Ed Snowden Ticker Tape Parade" Edition. Highlights: Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) will be on NBC, CBS, and CNN's Sunday shows along with various other politicians and government officials discussing the Obama administration cracking down on NSA spying. No Mike Rogers, but Fox News Sunday is in on the NSA act too. NBC will still have time to find some guy from New Jersey, not Bruce Springsteen, to rip on Chris Christie while the governor bawls listening to "Born to Run." You know, Christie has been to over 100 Springsteen concerts, and he told him so during a prank phone call from The Boss who happened to flying on Air Force One with a giggling President Obama. ABC will have Soviet dictator and world humanitarian Vlad Putin, with live sports play by play reporting on communist *** bashing from Sochi, Russia, where I have heard some other sports event is happening soon as well. Now, get your TV remotes ready.To the shows! NBC’s “M ...
After boldly standing out for Chris Christie after "Traffic-Gate", we now have new scandal...or "Fake Scandal" to coin a phrase from President Obama. In latest news, 25 million dollars in possibly misappropriated Hurricane Sandy relief funds are now under scrutiny because apparently Christie used his own family in tourism commercials proclaiming that the Jersey Shore is open for business. I am on the fence about this. On the one side, I didn't think for a second about the money spent for the media blitz proclaiming that the Gulf Coast was open for business after the BP disaster. Perhaps that was funded by BP and perhaps not. I don't think the consumer got the accounting for that. Also, like the commercials opening the Gulf Coast for business, the Jersey Shore commercials also urged tourists back to the area. On the other hand, Christie's family appeared in these commercials during his campaign season...Also, I find it highly doubtful that the commercials (25M worth) drew people back to the boardwal ...
When I said it was good that Chris Christie had a real press conference, that should in NO way be considered as support of him. In the same piece I mentioned the press conference I clearly said "I am no fan of Chris Christie" - I thought that was pretty clear. Apparently not, so I'll be a little more clear here: Chris Christie is a Big Government, corporatist, authoritarian statist cast in the same mold as *** Cheney, Hillary Clinton and President Obama: people who see government as the solution rather than the problem and who are the most harmful force in our nation. Christie / Obama/ Cheney / H Clinton have big differences in their marketing machines and style but all support domestic spying, drones, bombings which kill families and kids in foreign lands, expansion of the TSA and DHS and military style police on our streets, the Patriot Act and other destructions of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Delusions of Grandeur (While rebounding from a grave embarrassment) I meant to make this comment yesterday, but got engrossed in personal matters and let it slip... I mention this only because my wrinkle here MIGHT have influenced Meet The Press and/or Face the Nation today, which opportunity I regret having missed... Delusions of Grandeur!!! To the subject matter in question... Re Bridgegate, the only party who could spill the beans on Governor Christie is ITSELF caught in the frustratingly Catch 22 position of NOT being able to make that revelation — at least not at present — but if a GENUINELY CONTRITE US Government/ President Obama/ Senate Select Committee/ VLAD "court", having THOROUGHLY AND DEFINITIVELY EXTRICATED the NSA from our private lives, considers a 2016 Chris Christie a threat to the then leading Democratic Party presidential hopeful, then Uncle SAN just might reveal the contents of damning PERSONAL TELEPHONE conversations between CC and key players in the Bridgegate affair... if the NS ...
Rush Limbaugh gave Fox News some flak for defending Chris Christie today, and Glenn Beck also chimed in on the same subject, though from a different angle. He said Republicans shouldn't defend Christie because he and President Obama are more or less the same person pitching the same policies.

What was the top Political Stories in NJ for 2013 TRENTON — It was a high-profile year for New Jersey politics — and we'd like to know what you think the top story was. As usual, Gov. Chris Christie made a lot of headlines in 2013. He took on Congress over Hurricane Sandy funding, underwent surprise weight-loss surgery, didn't renominate State Supreme Court Justice Helen Hoens as he and Democrats battled over nominees to the high court, argued with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul — and, of course, won a second term with a landslide victory over Democrat Barbara Buono. All of that has helped cause a wave of speculation over whether he'll be a contender for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. There were other big stories in the Garden State political scene. President Obama visited Asbury Park to survey the recovery from Sandy. U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg died in the middle of his fifth term. Newark Mayor Cory Booker and conservative activist Steve Lonegan battled to fill Lautenberg's seat — with Boo ...
Wal-Mart announced that this Thanksgiving they are opening earlier than they ever have. Because what better way to celebrate the pilgrims' arrival than buying crap from China." –Conan O'Brien "It just came out that President Obama brings a portable security tent with him on overseas trips so that he can read classified documents. He sets up a tent in his hotel room. Obama said it's a good way to avoid being spied on while he keeps track of who he has spied on." –Jimmy Fallon "Yesterday President Obama honored our oldest living veteran, a man who is 107 years old. Today President Obama told him he can finally come home from Afghanistan." –Jay Leno "It seems that during his re-election campaign this year, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie paid $46,000 to get advice from former strategists for Mitt Romney. The advice he got: 'If you ever want to be president, don't listen to us.'" –Jay Leno "Today a reporter asked Chris Christie, 'What do you think of 2016?'

Chris ChristiE: When [the book] "Double Down" by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin was released, the... [pundits were] seemingly obsessed with the non-story of President Obama not choosing to replace Joe Biden as his vice president with Hillary Clinton. Segment after segment was devoted to it, even though nothing actually ever happened --other than an alleged floating of an idea that was quickly dismissed. But what was much more curious... was the very studious refusal to connect the dots on the opposition research done by the Romney campaign on prospective [vice presidential] candidate Chris Christie. While the general consensus amongst the Villagers was that Romney felt threatened by Christie's larger-than-life persona and felt repulsed by Christie's size. But Heilemann and Halperin actually documented some serious issues about Christie that you would think might hurt his chances at a presidential run. What disqualified him for the vice-presidency certainly should equally be of issue for his prospective ...
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is about to stomp his Democratic opponent into the ground. Sixty Democratic officials have announced their support for him over the challenger. Democratic Essex County Executive Joseph "Joe D." DiVincenzo, who runs one of the largest governmental and political operations in the state, has campaigned with Christie like a Running Mate. Sen. Cory Booker, the state's best-known elected Democrat, supports Christie's opponent - but the day after his election to the U.S. Senate he joined Christie at a groundbreaking for a ShopRite in Newark and praised the governor for bipartisanship. President Obama, whom Christie befriended after Sandy, has done nothing for the Buono campaign. I read that the Democratic leaders not only like Christie they don't like Buono. She has not been a team player in the past so she has little support or money from her own team.
Corey Booker is the mayor of Newark NJ and is the Democratic candidate for the US Senate, in a costly “special election” authorized by Chris Christie at a tremendous cost to the taxpayers of this state. He is a very smooth talker with a lot of rhetoric about his accomplishments in the town of Newark, which is presently experiencing a crime/murder rate of epic proportions. He has spent a great deal of time outside of his city and state, actively seeking and obtaining political contributions and support from elsewhere. Corey Booker has the endorsement of many of the Hollywood celebrities that have no idea of what accomplishments have been achieved by Corey Booker in his town. This includes that all important backing of Oprah Winfrey. These are the same people who backed President Obama, who possesses many of these same qualities, and it is very clear that after 5 years we have very little to show for all the promises and changes that were twice promised to us. Our national debt grows at an astounding ra ...
On my way home from the Ramapo College photography exhibit, the lure of the mega sized Barnes & Noble bookseller in Paramus was too much to resist so I stopped in and spent a bunch of money. In addition to Bloomberg Businessweek and Time magazines, I purchased former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson's updated "On the Brink; Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial System". Also picked up the hot new bestselling biography of President Woodrow Wilson by A. Scott Berg. And included in my batch of books are "The Message: The Reselling of President Obama" by Richard Wolffe and the soft cover updated edition of one of my favorites, "Chris Christie: The Inside Story of his Rise to Power" by great journalists Bob Ingle & Michael Symons. This is my third purchase of this Chris Christie book. You're welcome messrs. Ingle & Symons.
Five Things Conservati Five Things Conservative Voters Would Hate About Chris Christie By Dan Amira 18 3 Share on email Think long and hard about this one, Chris Christie. Did you hear the news? Chris Christie is going to save the Republicans from Rick Perry, who was supposed to save them from Mitt Romney but turned out to be a completely inept debater and a traitor on issues like illegal immigration and injecting little girls with mental retardation. Now, granted, Christie has said a hundred times that he isn't ready to run for president and won't do it. He's even threatened to kill himself to show how serious he is. But with Perry proving himself less than ideal, the never-satisfied GOP elite is once again pining for a conservative savior who can unite the party (or at least the anti-Romney faction of the party) and defeat President Obama. According to various reports, Christie is telling donors that, public refusals notwithstanding, he's open to reconsidering. Yesterday, former New Jersey Governor Tom ...
Newark Star Ledger Editorial About Chris Christie: Are Democrats who endorse Christie really Democrats?: Editorial Star-Ledger Editorial Board By Star-Ledger Editorial Board June 13, 2013 He pooh-poohs climate change, withdrew from the regional treaty to cut emissions, and depleted the state’s clean energy funds by $1 billion. How is it possible, you may ask, that Democrats such as Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo and Union City Mayor Brian Stack can endorse a stalwart Republican like Gov. Chris Christie? Yes, Christie hugged President Obama after Hurricane Sandy struck, and skewered House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for delaying aid. His loyalty to the party has its limits. And yes, he is sensible enough to compromise on big things, and so he has scored bipartisan wins on pension reform and tenure reform. Compare Christie to his Republican brethren in Washington, and he starts to look like Abraham Lincoln. But that’s because the Republican Party in Washington has veered off the charts into a s ...

Good morning uppers! Here's your (belated) Saturday show thread! Today we're talking about Chris Christie's decision to schedule a special election for the open Senate seat in New Jersey, the future of likely Democratic candidate -- and national rising star -- Newark Mayor Cory Booker, the diminishing number of military veterans in Congress, and President Obama responding to Republican obstruction in the Senate. Sorry for the lateness everyone!
In a new interview with CNN's Gloria Borger, Romney showed he's still not a natural in dealing with the press. When asked if he had hard feelings about Chris Christie praising President Obama after Sandy, Romney said no. Instead? "I wish the hurricane hadn't happened when it did because it gave the…
Actor Steven Seagal is now in Russia. He is meeting with Vladimir Putin. Is this what American foreign policy has come down to? Dennis Rodman is in North Korea. Steven Seagal is in Russia. What's next? Are we air dropping Gary Busey into Syria? Maybe Snooki goes to Iraq? President Obama says he is renewing his efforts to close Guantanamo Bay. How about closing the IRS? Why don’t we do that? How about shipping the IRS to Guantanamo Bay? In Pakistan, the Taliban's No. 2 man has been killed by an American drone. In a related story, today the Taliban's No. 3 man said he's stepping down to spend more time with his family. This week President Obama is going to be engaged in high-level talks with the president of China.

CHRISTIES THE RINO By now probably most of you have heard of this. Once more we are being "told" who t the next GOP Presidential candidate will be. Fox News is chortling over this, Karl Rove has his chalk Board out, and they are all simply salivating at the thought of another Rino... in this case more than a Rino, headed into the Oval office. It is interesting that Clinton is nowhere to be seen. Is she going to be dumped for this turn coat? I expect fatso to change parties. We can only hope. TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows. The checks are flying into the Republican Governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive ha ...
Might Chris Christie put a Democrat in Frank Lautenberg's Senate seat? Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, died on Monday in Manhattan. He was 89.The passing of five-term Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) of New Jersey marks the end of an era. He was the oldest member of the Senate, its last World War II veteran, and a beloved figure among New Jersey Democrats. It also deals a potential political blow to President Obama. Under New Jersey law, the governor appoints a replacement to fill a Senate vacancy until the next general election. That means Gov. Chris Christie – a Republican – has a juicy opportunity to turn a Democratic seat Republican during a crucial legislative period. Read more:
BROKE-BACK BOARDWALK (I wonder who wrote this?) Love was in the air as NJ Governor Chris Christie won his new object of obsession, President Obama, a teddy bear while the lovebirds strolled along the boardwalk in NJ. With his administration mired in scandal, Obama is trying to play his greatest hits – revisiting all the places where he got a bump in the polls. But the media seems to be missing one of the biggest stories from the day, and only Glenn had it. And while many news outlets picked up on Chris Christie stepping in to win a stuffed teddy bear for President Obama, only Glenn and his special, investigative reporters picked up on what happened next. “TheBlaze is reporting this morning that afterwards, the two made a sand castle of the White House on the beach and then frolicked in the crashing waves, playfully and gently splashing wanter on one another for about an hour.

After seeing more "shared posts" from my friends about Chris Kyle, mostly veterans, I decided to put my two cents in. If what I read is true, then I certainly feel all of my fellow vets' anger over this. I decided to look into this even more. I must be fair, the contrast between President Obama's treatment of the deaths of Whitney Houston and Chris Kyle are only partially true. The flags were at half mast in NJ on Governor Chris Christie's orders in NJ. Chris Christie also had them at half mast for all fallen soldiers from NJ. What is true, however, is President Obama did offer sympathy to the family of Whitney Houston but not the family of Chris Kyle who, unlike Whitney Houston, is an American Hero. As "Commander in Chief" this in absolutely inexcusable. No excuse can defend the President's inaction on Chris Kyle.
While the search for fired Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner continues, several versions of a manifesto believed to have been written by Dorner have been circulating around the Internet. Many of the versions are redacted to remove the names of Dorner targets. But a version that was originally posted on Fox's Los Angeles affiliate KTTV also contained quotes on President Obama, MSNBC, Chris Christie, Jon Huntsman, Hillary Clinton, George H.W Bush, and support for gun control. The version of the manifesto was obtained and posted on Fox LA 12 hours ago, but the link now returns an error page. A representative of Fox LA told BuzzFeed they pulled most of the manifesto after a request from police. A version of the Fox story remains online on a mobile version of the site and contains names of those targeted who police have asked news outlets to retract. The police haven't commented on either version of the manifesto but have said they are protecting individuals mentioned and their families. This is th ...
Wednesday Feb 06 2013, Late Night Jokes The Tonight Show With Jay Leno A new study says that working fewer hours can slow global warming. So you know what that means? President Obama's economic policy is also his climate change policy. This is kind of disturbing. The Justice Department has concluded that the president can order drone strikes on American citizens.

NRA executive VP Wayne LaPierre felt the heat from Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, who joined N.J.Gov. Chris Christie and others in attacking the National Rifle Association's ad that criticizes President Obama for letting armed guards protecting his daughters. When LaPierre defended the clip, arguing that many children face a similar threat in America as Sasha and Malia do, Wallace lashed out: "That's ridiculous and you know it, sir."
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has slammed the NRA over their recent attack ad branding President Obama as an 'elitist hypocrite' for having Secret Service protection for his two daughters.
Late Night Jokes: Thursday, Jan 03 2013 The Tonight Show With Jay Leno John Boehner was re-elected speaker of the house, which is pretty amazing — a Republican winning anything these days. Chris Christie also lashed out at Congress for doing nothing for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. But in their defense Congress says, "Hey, we don't do anything for anybody." President Obama signed the new fiscal cliff tax increase into law while vacationing in Hawaii today. He used an autopen, an electronic way of signing your name when you're not even there. Politicians can now raise your taxes while they're on vacation in Hawaii. This is a Democrat's dream come true.

I will say because no one else will. Someone talk me down if I am wrong. It has been 66 days and counting since Hurricane Sandy and John Boehner is punishing the people of New Jersey and New York because they feel Chris Christie helped President Obama get re-elected. No one and I repeat no should be able to hold up aid to people that need it. Our Government needs overhauling and I mean now. I want the election process overhauled today and not a day sooner as well. It is time to stop pacifying these Republicans. Who are they that everyone acts as if their are Cowboys from the O.K. Corral with guns and no one else has any. We won the election and the people have spoken. This is 2013 and I want the Democrats to show the Republicans that there is a new Sheriff in Town. We The People are not going to stand by and allow them to cheat, steal or force all of their arrogant and racist views on America. We want Hurricane Sandy victims to get paid now and don't keep telling me that money we have already p ...
Chris Christie and those of us on the left may disagree on politics but the New Jersey Governor cares about his state. That’s a fact. No one can take that away from him. The GOP House just messed with his state and Christie does not hold back. When Superstorm Sandy hit, President Obama and Governor ...

At a meeting in the White House on Thursday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie asked President Obama for $50-billion in emergency storm relief money. Bet he went back for seconds.
I don't agree with most of Gov. Chris Christie's politics, but I did really like his effort to work with President Obama after Superstorm Sandy and his more recent giddy fanboy moment with his musician idol Bruce Springsteen made me feel very happy for him. Think about your favorite all-time musician, and imagine not only getting a big hug from him or her, but being told "Now we're friends." I don't blame Christie for being excited and happy. It was a nice moment. I like it when people get to have a little joy.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey received the ridicule of fellow Republicans because he stood up for his state and praised President Obama after Hurricane Sandy.
A few days after Hurricane Sandy shattered the shores of New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie picked up the phone to take on a different kind of recovery work: taming the Republican Party fury over his effusive embrace of President Obama.
The big story here in Los Angeles is the Lakers have fired their coach, Mike Brown. They are playing so bad that President Obama and Chris Christie toured the Staples Center today. – Jay Leno
Open letter to Mitt Romney: Mr. Romney (glad it's Mr.) you did not lose the election because of some imagined "gifts" handed out by President Obama (glad it's Pres.). What you Mr. Romney have mistaken for "gifts" is actually leadership and evidently not only the kind of leadership that America needs but wants. There is a huge difference between Democrats and Republicans. Republicans pander to the wealthy and dismiss all others needs while Democrats want to help those who need help and I really don't think it's for votes. It's how we think as Democrats it's really our core belief. Republicans call us " Bleeding Heart liberals" as a bad thing, it's actually the Democrats trying to help the people who are in need. I don't think Chris Christie thinks Obama was looking for votes when he came to help those in need in New Jersey after the storm and if Romney were President at the time there would have been no FEMA and no help! Mr. Romney puts down kids being able to stay on their parents healthcare until age 26 ...
Thank you, Gov. Chris Christie, for asking President Obama for aid during Super Storm Sandy, ignoring Candidate Romney during that time, and then gratefully and sincerely appreciating the assistance sent to New Jersey by our 44th President, Barack Obama. We salute you for your sanity and encouragement! Amen!!
Colin Powell and Chris Christie of New Jersey for the next republican ticket. General Powell supported President Obama twice now but has never declared himself a Democrat. He would bring honor and decency, a knowledge of world affairs and diplomacy to a country weary of shameless behavior from all parties. Our country will survive long after we are gone, our leaders are only our chosen caretakers for future generations. Let all parties, all peoples, all faiths come together to make sure it is a positive future. This election chose a leader of our nation for only four years. We must plan for the next President I a year or so. May the best candidate rise and succeed for all Americans.
Picked up from a comments page to an article about Romney and the GOP: Tubbs Mitt Romney & the GOP did not lose the election. President Obama and the democrats won the election because they are smarter, more organized, and more in touch with a majority of Americans. Their organization will be the new standard for years to come, and the smartest one out of all of them is President Obama. This was NOT a close election. Over 2 million more votes in the general, and when florida finally reports all its votes, by about 130 in the electoral college. You can fool yourselves into thinking there was some conspiracy, or Hurricane Sandy & Chris Christie cost the GOP this election, but as all the information starts to come out, you’ll see this election was over before any of these things happened. The right wing media failed you, and will continue to lead you down a path of destruction. It’s your choice, but until you realize that the myth about Ronald Reagan’s America is just that, George W Bush was a dismal f ...
Election is over, I hope President Obama doesn't make Kerry secretary of defense what a bad idea, he would be okay at State but please not defense Karl Rove roasted him so bad on defense I don't think that labeling has gone away. What Obama needs the most is a great business mind in Commerce or Treasury, someone Mitt Romney like. I'm fatigued by all the political commentary like the Republican Party is about to die and go away. They have a 50/50 chance of winning in 2016. It just depends on the matchup. If Hilary Clinton wins she is probably the favorite. Though someone like Chris Christie could change the Electoral Map a bit and that could be an interesting match up. The Republicans have two options grab a candidate that puts Pennsylvania and New Jersey in the win column then win Ohio and New Hampshire or someone who is going to win Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Colorado. You are not going to find a candidate that can do both.
during Obama's acceptance speech he wanted to thank Chris Christie of New Jersey who was the keynote speaker in the Republican National Convention only spoke about himself and what he has done and never mentioned Mitt Romney. then gave President Obama plenty of photo opportunities after Hurricane Sandy tell propel the president back into another 4 years in a very close race to help President Obama pull ahead. nice job Christy will remember you in 4 years when you wanna run
WAITING FOR ELECTION RESULTS? If you've been watching news by the Main Stream Media, you'll get the distinct impression that President Obama has this election locked up. It's quite obvious that Non-Fox Media is literally helping the President with his campaign: Just consider how the MSM is NOT covering the Benghazi Cover Up — need I say more? Instead of reporting real news about the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, the MSM is emphasizing how Obama "looked" presidential while handling the hurricane — just before jetting off to Vegas. Remember how Barack suspended his campaign to fit in a hurricane photo op with Chris Christie? Remember how splendidly the President reached across the aisle to give the New Jersey Governor a bipartisan bear-hug? NBC even conducted a poll that measured the President's handling of the hurricane — 68% approved. REALLY? Exactly what was there to "approve" of? Possibly Obama's presidential swagger while looking smart in his presidential bomber jacket? Oh y ...

Just a thought to all the people that are screaming about God and how we’re all going to *** because we just re-elected a great President: In 2008, a hurricane postponed the Republican Convention. This year, a hurricane postponed the Republican National Convention. Now, just one week before the election, a hurricane blew President Obama and Gov. Chris Christie together to show that two people from two different parties can work together. If there were a god, I think that'd be him/her/it speaking.
Hurricane Isaac shortened the GOP National Convention, meaning that the documentary on Mitt Romney, presenting him as a caring, concerned human being, was cancelled...and replaced in the shortened network lineup by a senile Clint Eastwood yelling at a chair. Then Hurricane Sandy hit and it allowed President Obama to appear eminently presidential and in control, even drawing praise from arch-foe Chris Christie, while Romney floundered. Both of these things contributed to Obama's reelection. If anyone REALLY wants to argue that God has a say in this election--particularly those who attribute these superhurricanes to God, instead of global warming--whose side He's on is pretty *** clear.

Out of sheer desperation and in complete and total arrogance, stupidity, ego and infantile thought the Romney team expected Governor Chris Christie to leave his state for even a moment to appear on behalf of Dubya Mitt Romney. The Jersey Shore lays in shambles. People are dead, hungry, unable to get gasoline, without power. *** there is even a shortage of such essentials as toilet paper but Team Romney after all the attention President Obama gave New Jersey want the Governor to take time out to appear with Mitt. In the meantime an NFL team from Penn. has enough consideration to forego hotel rooms so that those in true need could use them. There is the soul of the party that wants to give a fetus property rights and possibly jail it's mother. That wants only some people to be endowed with certain inalienable rights and that as it's main message wants to kill democracy as we know it with an Oligarchy and coupons, That hates 47% of the population. That is how they think! Think before you vote. Think hard be ...
ABC News correspondent Jake Tapper: by bringing together Bruce Springsteen and Chris Christie, President Obama may have finally earned that Nobel Peace Prize.
I want you to hang in there, New Jersey. The National Guard is assisting the Jersey Shore. Governor Chris Christie and President Obama have been strategizing together on the cleanup, and Joe Biden is using his teeth to illuminate Hoboken.
As always, I remain apolitical on FB. So here is just an observation. After watching as Sandy destroyed so much, and watching President Obama and Governors Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo taking swift action, I can't help but think we are seeing the future. Chris Christie 2016? Andrew Cuomo 2016?
I'm reading many disturbing posts on other FB pages about how President Obama is handling this disaster. Before the day begins for me, just wanted to share that FEMA (FEDERAL Emergency Management Agency) is doing a fantastic job down at the shore. To all that are cursing the government, as you file your FEMA claims remember that "your guy" is going to privatize FEMA. Wonder how well that will work. Probably about the same as your insurance companies are helping you right now. Had to be said. Can't stand the BS and the fact that you cannot even acknowledge the President (as Republican Governor Chris Christie did) when he is doing the right thing for the people. God Bless you ALL!!
New York and New Jersey and the surrounding area have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Many people have no homes to go to and some, no jobs either. It is under dire circumstances that you get to see what a person is really made of and how they will lead this country. President Obama jumped right in and got help to so many in need in the area and even got effusive praise from Republican Chris Christie who spoke against him at the RNC! If you are still unsure for whom you will be voting, think about this: at a Republican Primary debate in June 2011, CNN's John King asked former Governor Romney his stand on providing money for relief efforts and Romney said " It is essential to cut the Federal budget including disaster relief. He also advocated decreasing the federal role in disaster relief and advocated shifting responsibility to the states and to the private sector to deal with disasters. When asked about it, he avoided directly answering but did indicate pretty clearly that he thinks that FEMA should b ...
Talk about an October Surprise. Just six days before the election, the nation saw President Obama joining with a fierce critic, Republican Gov. Chris Christie, to inspect the coastal carnage caused by Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey Shore.
More from Politicus USA: Obama Praises Leaders for Coming Together in a Crisis While Romney Camp Threatens Christie By: Sarah Jones At a grassroots rally in Mentor, Ohio earlier today, President Obama told supporters that we are in this together, that we rise and fall as one nation. As the President praised leaders from different parties working together, the Romney camp is threatening Chris Christie for working with Obama at a time when doing so might help the President. TRANSCRIPT OF THE PRESIDENT’S REMARKS: OBAMA: You see heroes running into buildings, wading into the water to help their fellow citizens; neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy; leaders of different political parties working together to fix what’s broken; it’s a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough the times are, we’re all in this together – that we rise or fall as one nation, as one people. And that spirit has guided this country along its improbable journey for more than two centuries. It ...
A new Mitt Romney is emerging in the closing days of the campaign, aides say: a man who is increasingly “being Eaten Alive with jealousy” by President Obama’s budding relationship with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. While Mr. Romney has told reporters that he is “totally fine” with Gov. Christie flying around in a helicopter with President Obama, privately he has told aides, “Seeing him with Chris Christie is tearing me apart.” The trouble began earlier this week, a Romney aide said, when Mr. Romney saw Mr. Christie on CNN mention that President Obama “had given him his number at the White House.” “Mitt was like, ‘Fine, whatever, do we have to watch this?’ and then basically ran out of the room,” the aide said. “It was completely awkward.” Making matters worse, the aide said, “Chris Christie isn’t returning his calls.” “Mitt was trying to explain his position on FEMA to reporters yesterday and he got all excited because his phone started vibrating,” the aide said. ...
Reading from Huff. Post that NJ Gov. Chris Christie is taking heat from major players (Rupert Murdock) in Romney's campaign for being so chummy with President Obama when he came to NJ to survey damage and commit FEMA monies and resources to the state.

I very rarely make predictions because I hate to be wrong, however, considering the body language, the level of enthusiasm ( or lack thereof) of borth candidates, and the fact that this week brought endorsements from Colin Powell and Mayor Michael Bloomberg and an implied endorsement from Gov.

Wednesday night, Christie acknowledged the odd circumstances. Chris Christie talks about President Obama touring damage from Hurricane Sandy The president said the wants to make sure there is nothing we ask for as a state that we don't get Watch video "I’m aware of all the atmospherics," he said. "I’m not in a coma. But the fact is I don’t care. There will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. Well you know, I speak the truth. That’s what I do. I say what I feel and what I believe. And I’m just doing the same thing with the president of the United States." Democrats and Republicans in the state welcomed the teamwork between the Statehouse and the White House, saying that providing relief to those left homeless, without power and surrounded by floodwaters as well as rebuilding the Shore would be any governor’s first priority. Tom Wilson, a former chairman of the state Republican Party, said Christie is "honest to a fault." "He’s just being honest and telling people, ‘Lo ...
Ana Marie Cox: Post-Sandy cosiness with President Obama was transactional, but not cynical: Christie already has a big job – in New Jersey
Exactly... We are all Americans and humans whom should care about all other human beings... not constituents... not the wealthy, not the educated... but all Americans caring about All Americans. Do not fight each other... How can a political party get women to fight against each other about if women should have the right to make decisions about their own body. How do Republicans get latins to fight against if Latin's should be able to stay here and get citizenship or self deport themselves... that is akin to African Americans fighting if we have the right to stay here in America or self deport ourselves back to Africa... Don't fight each other against our natural born rights... Stand strong in the same way we stand together during national disasters: So now, after Generel Colin Powell, Mayor Blumberg, BIg car company corporate execs and Gov.

In last week of campaign, Obama gets good luck and good news Ezra Klein / Washington Post 6:21 AM In campaigns, timing can be everything. And the Obama campaign has picked a good time -- the very last days of a close campaign -- for an extraordinary run of good news and good luck. In the good news bucket is the high marks President Obama received for his handling of the Sandy superstorm. According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, 79 percent of voters say the president has done a "good' or "excellent" job responding to the storm. Among those voters is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who made national news with his praise of the president. Further extending the White House's string of good headlines was the endorsement of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said he was moved by Sandy to endorse the candidate with a better plan to address catastrophic climate change. That took one more day of headlines away from Mitt Romney, who had been laying low during the storm but was back on the campaign ...
When people belittle President Obama's record on the economy, it would be only fair to recall that the whole world went on a colossal spending spree, creating, in simple terms, a house of cards that collapsed. Look at Greece and Iceland and even California. No one man, or administration could have done any better in the wake of that debacle. Romney/Ryan won't be any more effective - it isn't up to them. Add in the racist Tea Party, obstructionist GOP Congress and it is pretty clear why we're having a slower than hoped for recovery. Now pay attention to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's (R) assessment of Obama's leadership and consider who deserves to hold that office. It should be also be noted that Hurricane Sandy has left 17 states with a massive jobs and infrastructure project, not to mention a lot of cars to be replaced. Probably a good thing we didn't let Detroit go bankrupt, huh!
Conan O'Brien: Apparently, conservatives are furious with New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, for saying nice things about President Obama. Andy Richter: You mean for getting along and acting like adults?
Colin Powell, Chris Christie and Michael Bloomberg all have three things in common. 1) They are Republicans 2) They are all very well known Republicans 3) They all speak highly enough of President Obama as to praise his Presidentialness, or to outright endorse his re-election based upon his being the single most Presidential person in the political room. Many lesser known Republicans are also jumping ship from the Republican base. Even the Florida State Republican Chairman leaked a memo stating the "The Dems are cleaning our clock here". While the polls of "likely" voters tend to show the race within the margin of error, these are "likely" voters, not done deals. The early voting tallies speak another language. It's down to Mitt Romney's lies versus President Obama's Presidentialness. The alternate reality that Romney and the Republicans live in is becoming increasingly transparent, and now the United Auto Workers are demanding that transparency in the form of a lawsuit, while George W. Bush sits in The ...
Summary As people across the north-east United States start picking up the pieces after Sandy, here's a summary of where things stand right now. • Dozens were killed, hundreds of miles of coastline were flooded and New York City's infrastructure was dealt a massive blow as the super-storm Sandy moved through the mid-Atlantic states on Monday night and into Tuesday. Millions of people were left without power. • Ten of a reported 33 fatalities occured in New York City, and that number was expected to rise, according to Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Deaths in New York were attributed to falling trees, electrocution and drowning. • President Obama declared a "major disaster" in New York and New Jersey. Flooding devastated the coast and more than 2.3 million lost power. The National Guard rescued hundreds from flooding in New Jersey. The governor, Chris Christie, a Republican, said the damage was "unthinkable". He praised the "outstanding" co-operation he had received from Obama. • The transport infrastruct ...
Usually political foes, President Obama and Gov. Chris Christie had words of praise for each other after viewing New Jersey's battered coastline from Marine One.
I've put my cynical side on hold this week and want to ask a serious questions of all of you. Chris Christie really stood out for abandoning the political crap and doing what's right for his state and its people. He graciously thanked FEMA, President Obama and everyone who's helped out. Pardon my French, but why in the *** does it take a tragedy like this to get people to pull together and do something for the Common Good? I can't help, but think we'd be a lot further along in this recovery if BOTH sides would admit their mistakes, reveal their true motives and agree to disagree, but move forward. As the late Andy Rooney used to say "Do you know what really bothers me?" Well, this does
OCTOBER 31st *** THE LAST WORD *** LAWRENCE O`DONNELL *** President Obama surveys Hurricane Sandy Damage with Mitt Romney surrogate Chris Christie and Rush Limbaugh offers his theory on why. MSNBC`s Lawrence O`Donnell discusses how the presidential candidates navigate the delicate Hurricane Sandy politics with MSNBC`s Krystal Ball and Richard Wolffe.
I, for one, very much appreciate the sight of republican Chris Christie standing side-by-side in cooperation with President Obama during the response to Hurricane Sandy. The Fox News/Tea Party crowd, however, did not. They would rather Governor Christie have not praised Obama's leadership or worked with him in any way. The fact that members of opposing parties can come together in a national crisis for the Common Good is and should be an American value. If you think Fox News or the Tea Party have America's best interests in mind, ask yourself: Why would they do anything but praise the President and Governor Christie for their leadership in this crisis? Why would Fox News instead try to politicize the response by calling on failed former FEMA director Michael "heckuva job" Brown to Monday Morning Quarterback the disaster response?

In the face of all the destruction and devastation in New Jersey, and the entire NE coastal region, it did my heart so much good to see President Obama and Governor Chris Christie put aside their perceived differences for the good of the public. Call it what you like or prefer, but I saw two caring American politiicans working together, in a bad situation, and this is what we need more of. LES
Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on many networks to praise President Obama for his assistance and response to Hurricane Sandy. In the video above, the Governor was asked if Mitt Romney would be doing any appearances with him in the aftermath of the hurricane to which Christie ...
Accompanied by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, President Obama toured the destruction and devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy yesterday.
Recently headlines all over the nation have been covering Hurricane Sandy and rightfully so because it was a tragic event that has caused pain, loss and despair to thousands of Americans. But, sharing the headline over and over you see coverage on President Obama and Governor Chris Christie working together to try and bring relief to those affected. That’s where I fail to see any validity for a headline. Why are we using up time and space to talk about two politicians simply doing their job. Millions of Americans “do their job” every single day and most often it goes unnoticed because that’s what’s expected. So, is it so seldom that a politician does his or her job that we consider it a monumental event? Oh well, once again what seems to amaze me the most is that it keeps amazing me. That’s my opinion, I may be wrong.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is known for saying whatever’s on his mind. Unfortunately for Mitt Romney and his campaign, that includes effusive praise for President Obama and FEMA on their response to Hurricane Sandy. On Tuesday morning TV appearances, the Republican Governor and vocal Romney supp...
As the press continues to marvel at the odd pairing of Barack Obama and Chris Christie working together, I have to say that there was a time when this would not have been so unusual--it would have been commonplace. It really amazed me as I sat in Phenix City, Alabama, late yesterday afternoon and heard the ranting on the 'Martin Bashir Show' about the need for bi-partisanship. Clowns like Bashir and all his favorite 'panelists' get paid to deliver clever put-downs and 'slams' to the GOP. They are not journalists--they hold divisive 'pep rallies' for the left, billed as news shows. If political discourse has become a mere game, Bashir is among those who need it to stay that way. It is just as hypocritical for Bashir and his colleagues to wail about the need for bipartisanship as it was for Mitt Romney to blame President Obama for the divisions among the American people. Anyone who does not see corporate news as the reason for gridlock is blind to the obvious truth.
I'm not a fan of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, but you gotta hand it to him when he is right and speaks the truth. He gave President Obama a rousing approval on handling the crisis in Hurricane Sandy even though he said he don't care if folks in his Party will disagree with him. He put Partisan politics aside and welcomed the President's help when his Party Standard Bearer Mitt Romney has threatened to remove FEMA from the federal dough. At least Gov. Christie recognizes that there are roles the Feds must play in "Big Government" as opposed to the cheap shots the GOP always spew when it come to these sorts of things. The close working relationship and photo OPs between the Gov. and the Pres. will help in Tuesday's election I hope.
I love how my President Mr. Obama is doing such a wonderful job with regards to Hurricane Sandy. He took Air Force One and flew over New Jersey and spoke with Rep. Chris Christie. He is not being ugly, ignoring, rude, or being disrespectful although, Chris Christie has totally talked about President Obama like a dog! Talking about a President for the people!! Like Pres. Obama said,"I will NOT stand for read tape or buracracy." We will get it done and the East Coast up and running. I know of a previous HORRIBLE president that did a terrible job with huricane Katrina because it hit Louisana and Mississippi, two democratic states.
BREAKING NEWS...Chris Christie and President Obama to star in remake of "Tommy Boy".
The Joisey Giant 6:52 pm Thomas Kaplan On Christie's Tour, Hugs, Tears and a Personal Touch Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey spoke to people in Sayreville, where he inspected damage from the storm. Gov. Chris Christie’s aerial tour alongside President Obama on Wednesday of New Jersey’s storm damage was being observed in intensely political terms. But down on the ground, earlier in the day, the governor’s interactions with displaced residents displayed the personal gifts that have won him a broad following. His visit was documented by a pool reporter. In Sayreville, across Raritan Bay from Staten Island, the foundations of several homes were washed away, following the rush of a five-foot surge that had marooned some 200 people who were rescued, mostly by boat. Several women cried in Mr. Christie’s arms as they told him how much they had lost. The governor alternatively embraced them, put his hands on both shoulders and spoke softly with an arm around their backs. “I don’t feel safe in my house ...
The dramatic homestretch ad for President Obama, running on every network and in all media markets, is a home run, devastating for Mitt Romney. And, best of all, the president didn’t have to pay for it, or even say, “I approve this message.” It was a total gift — and from a Republican and top Romney surrogate. Gov. Chris Christie, the fleece-wearing, order-barking Neptune of the Jersey Shore, was all over TV Tuesday, effusively praising the president for his luminous leadership on Hurricane Sandy, the same president he mocked last week at a Romney rally in Virginia as a naif groping to find “the light switch of leadership.” As Romney roams the Midwest and Florida struggling to stay relevant, miming coordinating storm response with G.O.P. governors and collecting canned goods to send East, his fair-weather pal Christie failed to give Mittens any disaster relief. On ABC, CBS and NBC, Christie hailed Obama as “outstanding.” On MSNBC, he said the president “has been all over this,” and on ...
President Obama & Gov. Chris Christie talk as they fly over NJ coast today. (via White House's Pete Souza)
I think President Obama just convinced Gov. Chris Christie to become a Democrat! Hillary will need a Running Mate!
The Federal and State collaboration to address the recovery from the storm disaster in the NE has just been inspirational. Gov Christie of NJ putting away--forcefully--any partisanship and President Obama's using his natural bipartisan leadership and doing what needs to be done without politics has been a model of what should have happened when Obama first became president. But the Teapublican Congress had no Chris Christie to stand up to the right wing ideologues. Can you imagine Christie saying his first priority would be to damage President Obama's re-election instead of repairing NJ? That's exactly what Mitch Mcconnell did at the beginning of Obama's term. We were faced with a national catastrophe and the Teapublicans responded with politics rather than closing the ranks together with Democrats as Americans--as Christie and Obama did in NJ--to repair the effects of the disaster. It's a perfecct comparison. Why would anyone want to reward the GOP who threw our country under the bus for the sake of poli ...
Laura"The Man Made Woman" Ingraham is another poor excuse for a human disgrace to the human race.This dog in heat was on the air downing people for needing help after Hurricane Sandy blew through thire town,how in the *** could a person be so *** heartless.The little nerd turd that was on with her had the nerve to say,that people should working together and get donations instead of begging the government,now if his bamma Barney Fifth looking butt was one of those people down in New Jersey.They had a feild day wearing out Chris Christie,even though I don't like either,but this dude was showing class and thanking President Obama for coming down to Jersey to help the people down there.Ingraham would have been happy if Christie would have went off and disrespected The President Obama.The racist Mayor up in New York,who I'm putting on the list for being just that,a *** racist.

President Obama will travel to New Jersey Wednesday to view hurricane damage with Republican Gov. Chris Christie. Since the hurricane struck Monday the president has suspended personal appearances at campaign activities to monitor the response to Hurricane Sandy. Republican presidential candidate Mi...
I do not like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie; However, I do respect him. He has refused to participate in presidential politics in the wake of this horrible Sandy Hurricane. In fact, yesterday, Governor Chris Christie essentially told Fox News they were *** for asking him if Mitt Romney was coming to New Jersey to tour the damage; He basically slammed the Fox News people for asking such a stupid question. He turned around and then praised President Obama for his actions in regard to the Sandy Hurricane.
Last night someone posed the question, "How many times did you talk to your best friend today?" Chris Christie of New Jersey apparently didn't talk to his best friend Mitt Romney at all, instead, going out of his way to praise President Obama for his command of the tragic situation in the NE with Hurricane Sandy. Christie more than likely is lining up his ducks now for a 2016 run for the presidency and doesn't want to be seen with a loser like Myth Romney. Speaking of Myth, why hasn't Romney and Ryan shown up in NJ or NY and actually pitched in and helped with cleanup and rescue efforts, instead of faking it in Ohio? With all due respect to David Letterman here is my Top-Ten List for reasons I'm voting for President Obama. 10)..The Stock Market has more than doubled. 09)..Classy Michelle 08)..Just To Tick-off Rush Limbaugh. 07)..I have pre-existing conditions and will be able to get Health Insurance. 06)..Refuses To Give Tax-Cuts ToThe Wealthy. 05)..Has Showed Me 12 Years Of Pristine Tax Returns. 04). ...
Gov. Chris Christie and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is praising President Obama for his hands on involvement and handling of Hurricane Sandy. Now that is what I call reaching across the aisle. No more bickering, no more lies, no more foolishness! Let's come together and help the first responders in East Coast.
The Tuesday before Election Day was not a day for presidential politics, at least not for GOP Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey. Hours after Hurricane Sandy savagely hit his state, the man who has been a strong advocate for Republican Mitt Romney had effusive praise for President Obama.
Warning: Political post ahead: Every once in a while I cycle through the AM radio stations to see what the talkers are spouting about. On our one Progressive station, Ed Schultz is talking about Hurricane Sandy and about how even Chris Christie, the Republican Governor of New Jersey, is praising President Obama for getting Federal aid and emergency services to the states quickly and efficiently. He has a sound bite on hand, yep, that's exactly what Chris Christie said. Then I go over to every other AM station, some five or six of them are right-wing nutjobs bleating about Benghazi, one guy was even telling people that the Muslim Brotherhood was being handed 1.2 Trillion dollars in federal aid from our government, and how dare they when they supposedly couldn't afford more security in Benghazi, this guy said that the White House refused to allow funding to increase security at the embassy (I know, right, jeez, the guy doesn't even know how our government works, it's Congress who provides funding, not the P ...
Superstorm Sandy left millions in the Northeast without power or mass transit this morning. President Obama has declared a major disaster area in New York and Long Island. New York — Millions of people from Maine to the Carolinas awoke Tuesday without electricity, and an eerily quiet New York City was all but closed off by car, train and air as Superstorm Sandy steamed inland, still delivering punishing wind and rain. The U.S. death toll climbed to 33, many of the victims killed by falling trees. The full extent of the damage in New Jersey, where the storm roared ashore Monday night with hurricane force, was unclear. Police and fire officials, some with their own departments flooded, fanned out to rescue hundreds. "We are in the midst of urban search and rescue. Our teams are moving as fast as they can," Gov. Chris Christie said. "The devastation on the Jersey Shore is some of the worst we've ever seen. The cost of the storm is incalculable at this point." At least 7.4 million people — and possibly as ...
Governor Christie may not have read the Mitt Romney campaign memo lowering expectations for tomorrow night’s debate with President Obama in Denver.
Hobbs' Tuesday Talking Point New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a man seen by some as a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016, has taken to the airwaves the past few days to reaffirm his belief that Governor Mitt Romney will beat President Barack Obama next month and that the pathway to what would amount to a comeback of historic proportions if most conventional polling data is to be believed, starts tomorrow night during the first presidential debate. Christie, a former prosecutor whose blunt style is somewhat refreshing in an era in which most politicians cling to their talking points harder than their bibles or guns, has held firm on one Republican talking point of late---which is that Romney's vision will be laid bare to the American people by Wednesday night and that the contrast to President Obama will be so great as to help usher in a Romney surge. Again, the reason I sense that such is wishful thinking is because while Romney is a skilled and tested debater, debate formats do not al ...

I watched Governor Christie's multiple appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows today. The New Jersey Governor is to Mitt Romney what Bill Clinton is to President Obama. He explains things so much more clearly and credibly than the candidate does. So let's cut out the extra noise and just have a debate between Chris Christie and Bill Clinton!
Well, that was interesting . . . I tuned into Meet The Press while Gov. Chris Christie was talking and he was saying things like shared sacrifice and making America again a place where anybody can get ahead through hard work and I thought he was talking about President Obama and his policies. I was wrong; he was talking about what Governor Romney believed. So, what's the difference?
Although the Democratic and Republican National Conventions had many things in common—most notably, a focus on President Obama—there were also a few subtle differences. For instance: Unlike the delegates at the RNC, the delegates at the DNC represented the diversity of America. Unlike some RNC attendees, all of the DNC attendees were willing participants. And, as far as the speakers/speeches: Unlike Ann Romney, First Lady Michelle Obama didn't need to profess her love for women to get their attention. Unlike RNC keynoter Chris Christie, DNC keynoter Julian Castro didn't wait until the end of his speech to mention the nominee. Unlike Republicans, Democrats were proud to give their most recent past president—who is wildly popular—a speaking slot. Unlike the speech given by Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Vice President Joe Biden's speech wasn't composed of lies. Unlike the speech given by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, President Obama's speech created a buzz. Unlike Mit ...

Just Laughs for the Day !!! I hOpE yOu EnJoY !!! Bill Clinton said that President Obama inherited a deeply damaged economy. And if he's re-elected he'll inherit an even more deeply damaged economy. President Obama's speech was moved from the Bank of America Stadium to the Time Warner Cable Arena. They had to move out of the big venue into a smaller place. Like a lot of homeowners in the past four years. In a related story, Vice President Joe Biden's speech also was moved to a smaller venue — the back room at Denny's, the booth in the corner. Today Scarlett Johansson, Kerry Washington, and Eva Longoria all spoke at the Democratic convention. This means that Obama has all but clinched the crucial 13-year-old boy vote. This morning Tom Brokaw had to be taken to the hospital after accidentally taking an Ambien sleeping pill. And tonight he was taken to the hospital again after accidentally listening to a speech by Joe Biden. Tom Cruise is being accused of having the Church of Scientology audition women to ...

If I were a Republican, I would be deeply disappointed tonight. The carefully-choreographed GOP affair in Tampa was the dullest and most ill-conceived political convention of my lifetime. For starters, take the featured speeches: --Chris Christie was dynamic but talked mostly about himself--as if HE were the candidate. -- Paul Ryan spewed one blatant falsehood after another--as all the non-partisan fact-checkers pointed out. -- John Mccain was so alarmingly bellicose that he had me wondering if I should build a fallout shelter. -- Clint Eastwood was so incoherent that he made me cringe. And his schtick of pretending an empty chair was President Obama--and that the president was cursing at him and Mitt--was just plain weird. -- Ann Romney was eloquent and charming, but her portrayal of Mitt as a great father and loving husband who stuck by her through her illnesses should gain him no points. If you don't do those things, you're a creep. If you do, you're just doing what you're supposed to. -- Marco Rubio' ...
Former Florida Governor and Republican Chris Christie has endorsed Obama, saying, "As Republicans gather in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney, Americans can expect to hear tales of how President Obama has failed to work with their party or turn the economy around," Crist writes. "But an element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they've proven incapable of governing for the people. Look no further than the inclusion of the Akin amendment in the Republican Party platform, which bans abortion, even for rape victims." He also said, "I applaud and share (Obama's) vision of a future built by a strong and confident middle class in an economy that gives us the opportunity to reap prosperity through hard work and personal responsibility. It is a vision of the future proven right by our history."

N.J. Gov. Doesn't Want More Money for Firefighters By S.A. MILLER The New York Post Created: July 11, 2012 Gov. Chris Christie's says he doesn't want President Obama to send his state more funds for public employees. WASHINGTON -- No more public workers -- please! That was New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's alarmed reaction to President Obama's push to send states another dose of stimulus money to hire teachers, firefighters and police. "Please don't send me any more money to hire more public employees. Please don't," implored Christie yesterday in a speech at the Brookings Institute, a liberal Washington think tank. "I've got plenty as it is, and I don't need any more, and they're expensive!" said the brash governor, who won a hard-fought showdown with teachers unions over benefits and pensions. Temporary federal aid to hire permanent state and local workers, he argued, only leads to huge budget shortfalls or layoffs when the stimulus money runs out. "I have the highest property taxes in America to begin w ...

What lessons can Scott Walker (and Mitt Romney and President Obama) learn from Chris Christie? Mainly this: Collaboration is valuable, and it really is important to “reach across the aisle.”
I work with teachers. I work with students. Romney does not. We need more teachers. We need age appropriate schooling not this grade crap stuff we've used for years. In order to raise our educational levels from 27th in the world we to compete with eastern bloc countries. Currently we do not. And it's embarrassing talking to teachers. Romney is lost. Romney is the anti-Christ. Voting for him puts the nation 60 years behind the 8 ball. The last three years are the worst on record for public sector job loss, and the 700,000 government jobs that no longer exist remain a large drag on the American economy. Today, New Jersey Gov. and Mitt Romney campaign surrogate Chris Christie (R) said that those losses meant the country was moving in “the right direction,” and Romney himself backed that statement up later, criticizing President Obama for calling for the hiring of more teachers, firefighters, and police officers, the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent reports. From CNN’s report of the Romney ev ...
In a television interview moments ago, President Obama endorsed marriage equality for same-sex couples. "I am overwhelmed with tears of joy, as our millions of other LGBT people and our millions of allies across America. We will remember for the rest of our lives where we were when we heard the sitting President of the United States say he supports marriage equality. "Today’s announcement by the President is of particular importance to those of us fighting in New Jersey and everywhere else marriage equality is up for grabs. No longer will opponents such as Governor Chris Christie be able to deny. That political cover is now thrown into dustbin of history parked outside the archives of prejudice, collecting its rhetorical trash.
Recent comments from George Will regarding President Obama are right on! "Look, self-absorption’s part of the occupational hazard of politics and it’s also part of the job description of being president. All that said, try to imagine Dwight Eisenhower talking about D Day, saying, “I did this, I decided this, I did this, and then I did that” — it’s inconceivable. If you struck from Barack Obama’s vocabulary the first-person singular pronoun he would fall silent, which would be a mercy to us and a service to him actually, because he has been so incontinent in his speechmaking for the last three years that you wind up with, as you said, an Ohio State University, empty seats." - “He went to Massachusetts to campaign against Scott Brown. Scott Brown is now a senator. He went to New Jersey to campaign against Chris Christie, who’s now the governor. He went to Virginia to campaign against Bob McDonnell, who’s now governor. He campaigned for the health care plan extensively, it became less pop ...
