Christie throwing the praise a little prematurely to consider it a “good job” honestly, is advising looking up on the internet, which is likely to be trafficked to death for storm updates, much less watch it on TV when it is likely that the power could go out, a smart idea? Frankly not, but that’s what Obama was suggesting.

I think something is going on under the radar that we don’t know about. I think Christie and the Romney folks have had a falling out of some kind. When was the last time Christie talked favorably about Romney?- it’s been months.

Maybe Christie is still mad that Romney chose Ryan over him and is trying to get back at him by passive-aggressiveness.

I have detested Christie since he backed liberal Mike Castle over Christine O’Donnell in DE in 2010. However, this is no big deal. It helps us more than it hurts. “Tea Party” Republicans are fair.’

I have to say, imho, this about Cristie. He is not to be trusted. He is like a wolf in sheepskin. He dresses himself as a Republican, but is far from the values Republican conservatives hold close to the heart.

Christie should have been giving Romney updates and had him into New Jersey first, guarantee if it was a Rat Governor and a Pub president it would be repeat of Blanco in Katrina. They would do everything to help their nominee.

I watched Christie on Fox&Friends this morning. As he lambasted the F&F guys because they asked a question about the presidential election, I got the impression that Christie is a tad miffed at Mitt for not offering him the VP slot.

I was just thinking today how Christie might invite Romney to tour the storm damage and how that could really help the campaign.

Wow, was I ever wrong about that.

I can understand wanting to invite the President, but why snub Romney?

I guess he is more concerned about his own reelection than about us taking the White House.

aw, cut the guy a break...his state is smashed to crap and will need bazillions in federal aid. It’s hardly fair to expect anyone in this situation to dis the POTUS.

You may have a point about Christie in general, but not on this issue today.

He could have politely thanked him without praising him like he did.
This was a huge mistake and will likely lose at least one percentage point for Romney.

There are still alot o really dumb people out there who make their decisions purely on emotion.
And is anyone else ready to throw a brick through their TV if they have to watch Shep salivate over the storm for one more minute?

I think he's just under a lot of pressure (duh)... and sincerely doesn't want to play politics right now. I don't read anything other than that into it.

Don’t trust Christie at all but WTH has obozo done? What leadership? He sure as hell voted present during the Nashville floods, the Midwest floods, the TX wildfires and he sure as hell didn’t give me his number 2 years ago when a snowstorm in Feb knocked out power for 2 weeks in sub freezing temps.

Our church took a group of people including contractors to Alabama right after the tornadoes struck. We weren’t allowed anywhere near the area to help because we didn’t have prior clearance from Red Cross. The electricians and plumbers that went with us weren’t allowed to do any repairs because they weren’t on FEMA’s approved contractor list. Our guys didn’t expect to get paid anything, it was all on a volunteer basis. We finally got a copy of one of the approved lists. All of the contractors were from Illinois, New York or Michigan. Went back to Joplin and found the same thing there so came back to Texas. So very sad. I hope Christie realizes the proof is in the pudding and doesn’t rely on empty promises made by Obama and FEMA.

I’m watching him on CNN now, certainly he looks devastated himself and knows he needs to get federal aid for his state. However it’s also true he is kissing tookis because how could Obama have done anything “outstanding” thus far? There is nothing I’m aware of.

They just asked him about Romney and he had nothing to say of praise about Romney.

The whole show is about Christie praising Obama. Maybe Christie’s motive is sincere but this is being used against Romney.

Yeah. The more he says, the angrier I get.

He and Romney must have had a falling out. No other way to explain why he is going out of his way to praise Bambi and say nothing good whatsoever about Romney.

I am half-expecting an endorsement of the Kenyan from him tomorrow.

Not the first time this PhonyCon has praised Muslims...he supported the building of the Islamic Terrorist Shrine Mosque at the 9/11 site in NYC

A fiscal conservative is neither.....

Christie heard Obama go “allah snack bar” and immediately clapped his hands together like a trained and starved seal.

(Christie, big fiscal hawk is a moron / dhimmie who supports the jihadi memorial mosque next to GZ).

can anyone shut this bloated ego up..has he never seen rain or does Obama have his FBI file? Christie is making politics of the storm himself. He did simular damage at the Republican convention.

If you are a seminole you must understand something about the devastation of hurricanes.

I am not a fan of Christie, but I know how Government operates.
He has to kiss ass for now...just the way it is.

Not to mention the BP oil spill when it took two weeks before 0bumble was "looking for some asses to kick." That led to the moratorium on offshore drilling that has helped drive up gas prices.

Seemed awfully early. And more than a bit... overboard. If the media decides to go all-out turning Obama into a majestic hurricane hero (regardless of any concrete actions or facts) in these next few pre-election days, Christie handing them this wildly “over-the-top” praise to springboard their pro-Obama propaganda isn’t going to wear too well. If the election is close, this kind of unwarranted lifeline can tilt things Obama’s way.

Hope you don’t get smacked by the remanants and lose your power for a week or two..just to begin with.

Ok, what does he expect from Romney/Ryan? Well, if Romney wins then come January, Christie will have to deal with President Romney, won’t he?

Seriously, he is praising Obama before Obama has done a damn thing. He knows exactly what he’s doing a week before the election. And tomorrow the msm will go wild with images of Christie and Obama together.

Mind you, NJ is devastated and Christie should be very kind to Obama, but when I just saw him deliberately not say a positive word about Romney, something is going on.

After calling Obama “outstanding”, Christie couldn’t remember when Romney called him and he deliberately did not say a positive syllable even about Romney calling.

One week to go, Obama behind, don’t you damn well know Axelrod etc. Told Christie he better play ball, or else.

And if it is good for Christie to praise Obama right now, isn’t it also short sighted to be treating Romney like dirt when he might be the president in a couple of months?
