That fat gasbag Crispy Creme Christie has cost Romney dearly in the polls with his effusive praise of the Great Pretender - and then we watched as 4 days later FEMA was still not on the ground, people are eating out of dumpsters, and coming to blows in hours-long gas lines.

This schmuck should be finished in Republican politics. It ends here. If he costs Romney the election, he should be persona non grata. Let him become a Democrat, since he loves them so much. Bastard.

Morris’ motto is: Always be figuring out how to make a buck! This is all MOE stuff. I don’t believe that the fundamentals have changed.

I expect him to switch parties and run in 2016 as a Dem. What the hell, the Dem's have no bench... Think about it, it makes perfect sense...

Christie wants to run in 2016, and since it looks like Mitt is in the lead, he needed to so what was necessary to get Obama elected. Of course, I still expect Mitt to win, and I suspect Christie will switch parties and run as a communist Democrat in 2016.

IOTW: This country is going to turn its back on freedom and continue down Obama’s road to communism because Barry did a few photo ops before heading to Vegas after a storm? We don’t deserve what we’ve got in this country.

Hang tough conservatives...we have these scum bags on the run.

Christie might cost Romney NJ...but that's it.

This election is a universal rejection of Socialism. It doesn't work...it never has.

Europe and America should buy champagne for Tuesday night.

Collectivism will take a final bow (well not really...we'll never be rid of that scum. It is like fungus).

That said, the new American (and indeed human) renaissance awaits us.

If Obama thought he could cash-in on the compassionate leader ploy, he would be in New York/New Jersey from now until Election Day, but he’s nowhere near either state.

This is utter horse cr@p.

Christie thinks he'll receive credit for bipartisanship in the face of disaster but the best he'll get from democrats is the back of their hand the next time they have a chance to vote for one of their own.

And when that time comes many republicans will remember what he did for Obama in the days leading up to this election, when the fate of the entire nation hangs in the balance, and say 'no thanks' big fella.

That said, Morris is selling drama here.

So a photo op is going to convince thousands of voters without jobs and struggling to make ends meet to vote for Obama again?

I don’t buy it, he didn’t even DO anything. And now people are starting to see how much a mess NYC is, and that’s not going to jive well with “Obama is wonderful” now that New Yorkers are rifling through dumpsters.

This is a a fundraising email to get cash for Michael Reagan’s PAC. Take it with some caution. I was trying to get a sense of his true feelings. Well see what Morris is saying over the next couple days.

You know, the thing I find most repellant about Morris is the fact that everything he writes -- all his suppositions and conclusions -- I could have easily framed, and probably written better.

He's just not that good.

My concern was that O was going to spend the rest of the campaign in NY and NJ. That would have sealed his deal. I was wrong. He came, he saw, he got his picture taken and then turned tail. The polls will catch up with this before Tuesday.

Glad you posted this, looks like Dick is walking back his earlier prediction. He's lost his confidence now this close. That being said, the only poll I will watch is on election night.

The USSC taught me not to assume anything anymore in this country earlier this summer.

Unemployment rose today and no one was willing to say it loudly, not even Free Republic...which amazes me.

Obama continues to stall on Benghazi, where heroes were abandoned and died.

The economy sputters from ObamaCare, from low profits, from unemployment, from uncertainty, and from good, old-fashioned fear.

Who is there to tell those stories the last few days?

Unless it’s Romney in ads, there is no other way to get that across between now and Monday night to swing voters.

This is why Romney’s been given all that money.

Pray that he’s spending like crazy, and just being honest, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado will win it for him.

29+13+18+9=69+206=275

I don’t think Obama’s “Mutt & Jeff” photos with belligerant slob Christie will hurt Mitt at all by next Tuesday. They are two of the most repulsive human beings in American politics, I don’t think either one of them can be much help to the other as far as popularity. That goes for Bloomberg too.

I found Christie to be an interesting, loud-mouth Northeastern Republican before this week. I would not have wanted him for our nominee, but I liked his brashness in a way.

After his performance this week with Barry I find him a detestable fellow. His mouth engages before he THINKS and he REACTS before taking a minute to ponder the impact his words will have.

I am still confident Romney/Ryan will win.

Yes there has been minor slippage in some polls. Morris is probably right that momentum stalled due to the hurricane. But polls probably would've "tightened" anyway, just before the election. They always do.

Voter intensity is key. Our side has never lost its intensity! On the other hand, does anyone really believe voters are going to get fired up over Obama NOW ... just because he did a "presidential" photo-op with Christie* and a few hurricane victims (who, by the way, are still suffering terribly, despite Obama's waving his magic wand).

Obama may well find his exploitation of Sandy backfiring over the weekend.

*Oh and speaking of Christie: I come from the place in NJ where Christie got his political start. He was elected to the office of County Freeholder --then booted in the next election because he was such a jerk. President Bush then appointed the failed Freeholder Christie to the post of US attorney. This gave Christie lots of face time on TV, and a chance to look tough. But watch out. Christie is inconsistent in his character, and he is no constitutional conservative.

THe problem as defined is: Obama seems to be gaining just as the weekend starts.

That’s a bad omen, we can wake up Monday morning to very bad numbers for Romney.

I personally believe Romney blows Obama out, but they keep giving me nagging doubts. I don’t blame Christie for anything as I see no motivation for him to do so other than for his constituents in NJ, and cannot believe he thinks he has a shot at 2016. He would if he came around and became physically fit during this election cycle but even if he made it 2013’s New Years resolution he won’t be a viable candidate in 2016.

I stand by my prediciton, Obama loses all but 1 swing state and looses a surprise “safe” blue state.

A few days of the Incompetent Kenyan talking about a hurricane won’t undo 4 years worth of unemployment stats.

Besides, the “Sandy story” has yet to fully play out - there’s still 4 days to go. Who says there won’t be some story about Bammy enjoying a deluxe champagne dinner or NBA game while the public suffers? THAT could change the ratio 5% overnight. There’s a million things that could happen.

Let the chips fall where they may.

Christie might cost Romney NJ...but that's it.

You are correct, but one minor adjustment. NJ was never going for Romney. That is the downside. People from outside NY and NJ are looking at NY and NJ and they are being driven to Romney. Now if Romney had some time to come down hard on Sandy and how ineffective the federal government is in responding to these things, he could win NJ and NY. That time doesn't exist before the Tuesday. Only personal responsibility, neighborhoods, and local government can respond to these events. Even when a state government gets involved things get screwed up.
