Gov. Chris Christie: President Obama 'kept every promise' on storm aid
Oregon Live ^ | April 29, 2013 | Associated Press

Posted on 04/29/2013 8:49:17 AM PDT by PauldArco

HIGHLANDS, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that President Barack Obama "has kept every promise he's made" about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy.

Speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program on the 6-month anniversary of the deadly storm, the Republican governor said presidential politics were the last thing on his mind as he toured storm-devastated areas with Obama last fall.

Is this guy really our frontrunner for 2016? I thought this guys' rep was for paring down government... then he goes onto the national stage singing the praises of an intrusive overbearing administration?

I think presidential politics were definitely on his mind ... the wrong politics...

I believe Christi may run on the Democrat ticket with Hillary.

I'm now thinking he lowered the flag to half staff for the druggie at the request of Obama.

Christie is nothing but a boot licker..and a con.

It may not be politically correct but I don’t have any respect for Christie because he is, simply put, a fat pig. He has no real self-respect. The guy is morbidly obese and embarrassing.

Oh, wait ob@ma promised and kept all his promises......what did he promise “elect me I’ll fix everything”, so Christie says all is well.....then I guess ob@ma did keep his promises.

Obama always keeps promises - with other peoples' money.

I'm not impressed. But it speaks volumes about the principles of NJ's portly governor that he is.

He apparently thinks the designation “RINO” included a weight qualification as well.

Yeah, Christie? Than why does Highland, NJ still look like Syria on a bad day? And do they still have curfews there? I’d take a ride over but they generally don’t let you into the town.

I know . . . bad enough he has to compete with his rather porcine and lard-butt wife Mooch-elle ("are you gonna' finish that?") Obambi.

More than likely. He’s laying the groundwork for just that.

I’ve been saying he’ll come out as a Dem eventually.

That’s been pretty obvious since this started.

Agree - but sadly that seems to be about the best New Jersey can produce (in the way of Govs, that is).

Where are the idiots who constantly screamed about Bush’s ‘inaction’ after Hurricane Katrina?

Or is their absence of loudmouthery because this is a Vanilla City?

Oh really, guv.

Why don't you and "The One" head back down to the area so some media can catch some photo ops of you and the folks that have benefitted from those "promises!"

I'll bet some of those folks might have a different point of view.

Obama figured out that all he had to do was drag a box of donuts back in forth outside the NJ Governor’s mansion.

Does Christie understand that his positive comments on a man who is destroying our country make him look like he doesn’t care about America? There is no situation in which I would vote for Christie after his Obama support over the past seven months. I’d vote third party even if it was Christie or Hillary, just to make it clear that I won’t settle for the lesser of two socialists any more.

[[I believe Christi may run on the Democrat ticket with Hillary.]]

Nope=- He’lll run on the conservative ticket so that no matter which one wins, we’ll be stuck with 8 more years of a flaming liberal hell bent on destroyign htis nation- Hillary will see to it that he runs opposite her knowign that if she loses, and he wins, she still wins because they are so alike and share the same natio ndestroyign ‘ideals’- besides, she won’t want to take a chance that runnign a ‘conservative’ o nher ticket will turn off soem on the left- Just my take-

Either way we’re doomed for 2016 unless a STRONG conservative coems on board and captures the votes of all thsoe lackeys that abstaiend from voting the last tiem around because romney wasn’t perfect i ntheir eyes

The prospects don't appear so bright on that one... the Repubs keep throwing principled conservatives under the bus, since the Almighty Press only approves of certain viewpoints. If the only people promoting conservatism come off as mealy-mouthed handwringers afraid of who they will offend next, so we really think we'll do better than Romney next time around?

And it’s not even an inner city. It’s just a low-lying area of white working-class people - a really nice town but badly hit by Sandy.

Don’t discount the fact that it may simply have been a truthful statement. If so, should he have lied instead?

This puke is merely a member of the McScream branch of the liberal RINO-republican commies. If he won the presidential election, it would be like electing a liberal democrat or that puke NY mayor.
