    Chris Christie Praises Obama For Hurricane Sandy Preparation


    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) put aside his campaigning for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Sunday to praise President Barack Obama for his responsiveness to the Garden State's needs in preparing for Hurricane Sandy.

    During a briefing with emergency personnel, residents and press, Christie thanked Obama for holding a conference call with him and governors of other states expected to be impacted by the storm, the Star-Ledger reports.

    “I appreciated the president’s outreach today in making sure that we know he’s watching this and is concerned about the health and welfare and safety of the people of the state of New Jersey,” he said.

    Christie shortened a campaign trip for Romney in North Carolina and canceled a political trip to Nevada in order to return to New Jersey to focus on the hurricane.

    Christie also announced Sunday that he is asking Obama to issue a pre-landfall emergency declaration for New Jersey in order to expedite federal assistance for the state. A press release from Christie's office indicated that such a declaration would allow New Jersey to start requesting federal funds and other aid in advance of the storm. Obama issued a similar declaration for New York state.

    "Appreciating" is "praising?" ... :eusa_hand:

    The kenyan is doing nothing more than bare minimum of what is his job, not to mention he probably thinks this will help his campaign.

    Go lick your balls you stupid fucking mutt.

    I wondered how many posts it would take for the first partisan dickhead to react.
    One post in...very impressive.

    Funny how these Conservative Governors' platforms are all about hating Obama and the Federal Government in general, But they have no problems at all taking that Federal money when bad shit happens. Our governor(Corbett) will do the same.

    Don't get me wrong....I think they should take it.....But I find it ironic that for four years, all we have heard is how oppressive the Federal government is and now they are all nuzzled up to the teet for their share of the milk.

    Not to mention he can't allow himself to take any more heat after ignoring Libya on 9/11.
