Obama’s only motivation is his image for the election. Sorry...but that is how I see it.
At this point, I do not know what motivated Christie’s “GREAT credit” remark about the present inhabitant of the White House.
OMG WTH is Christie doing????!!!! We could lose NJ and NY!!!!
Seriously, the only people that Obama will score points with on the hurricane are the libs in NY and NJ. Everyone else has a brain and cognitive thinking skills.
At this point, I do not know what motivated Christies GREAT credit remark about the present inhabitant of the White House.
I heard an O-bot here at work yesterday say "wow, this hurricane will give Obama a chance to show his leadership skills". Before Katrina, people didn't look to the president for "leadership" during and after hurricanes. Aside form declaring a federal disaster area, the POTUS has diddly to do with hurricanes. However, after Katrina, the MSM used it as an excuse to blast Bush for lack of leadership, thus setting up Obama as a " great leader".
I would have prefered to see tough-guy Christie continue on his line of "not caring about politics at a time like this" by not singling out the POTUS for acclaim because Obama hasn't got anything to do with it. We knew the narrative from the beginning would be "look at how great and studly Obama is during a crisis"; and Christie joined in with it.
Really? You can't?
If Romney loses, Christie instantly becomes the front runner for 2016. If Romney wins, Christie will probably never be President.
“At this point, I do not know what motivated Christies GREAT credit remark about the present inhabitant of the White House.”
I think the answer is within the story — Obama speeded up declaring NJ a disaster area “without all the red tape.” Remember, Christie represents a Blue state and is up for re-election next year, so he has everything to gain by cozying up to Obama.
