Was Jersey ever in play?

I wasn’t thrilled to see he and Obama looking like rump swabs, but I really cannot see how that would impact anyone outside the tri-state area.

I think the attention lost overall is hurting Romney.

I think if there is anything left on Benghazi, tomorrow would be a nice day to get it out.

This picture kind of says it all. Politicians are, in general, pathetic. On the left you have someone (Christie) who might have some decent ideas, but whose recent actions have underscored his ‘self before principle’ politics, and who clearly needs to develop enough self discipline to reduce his caloric intake. In the center you have the narcissist in chief, nuff said. On the right you have a guy who is allegedly contributing to the delinquency of minors with underage prostitutes, while on the public dole.

Politicians are the most pathetic elements of society. In general, they make drug dealers seem less despicable. I'm sick of just about each and every one of them.

Having said that, I truly hope and pray Romney wins, because we can't take any more of Obama and Valerie Jarrett.

I have correctly predicted every Presidential election since 1956, and I fear we may lose this one to fraud. Even an empty chair should be leading Zero by 20 points.

Two thirds of all jobs created since Zero took office have went to illegal or legal immig

rants, and still we are talking about lowering taxes. We have an Ambassador murdered by terrorists and we are talking about a lousy YouTube video.

Romney has mentioned nothing about anything except small business, which is always interpreted as tax cuts for the rich.

You can get as excited as you want, but this guy is as exciting as mud pie.

I did relent and vote for him last week, God help us all.

He’s just miffed because he did not get the VP nod. And Morris (Clutch Cargo mouth) needs to sit down and shut up. He’s about to make his last $$$ on the campaign, he’s still trying to stay relevant.

I thought the run of the mill polls were were beneath the toe sucker. So why bring them up? What do his top secret polls say?

He is such a fat weasel.

In a moment of emotional distress (understandable),Christie destroyed his national political career (unforgivable).

has no idea what causes red tape, and is even less capable of cutting through it.

He doesn’t seem to have any trouble cutting through those red tape laws congress has passed, so I think maybe he knows a little about that kind of stuff, a lot more than we give him credit for.

We have laughed and joked about how incompetent he is, and yet he has single handily brought this county to the brink of destruction. I hope we are still laughing Tuesday night.

It’s frustrating to know that if this had occurred when Bush was president, the MSM would be crucifying him endlessly. But it’s Obama, so... no big deal.

I take the contrarian view think the storm damaged Zero in NY & NJ and for the following reasons.

a) People on the ground there are hurting and blaming FEMA. It's not widely broadcast because of the RAT compliant media but its there.
b) Voting participation will suffer in those affected regions, because people are preoccupied with getting their lives back in order. The damage could be such that if could make NJ competitive. Yes Zero visited but other then a photo op with Christie, the perception is USG has dropped the ball.
c) From the independent voter viewpoint the Zero-Christie kiss fest is what they want politicians to do. (Think a political version of the Rodney King statement, “Why-can’t-we-all-get-along?”!) Independents want politics without partisanship, which by definition would not be politics. There have been partisanship since Washington. Independents want what's impossible! It was the "play nice" independents & swing voterw swoon over for national consumption but locally showed Zero impotence.

Let me just say I mostly agree with you. I do think Christie was a little too effusive in his praise like a kid in school overly praising the jocks so they can be popular too.

Also we can say all day long we shouldn’t play politics during disaster, etc, etc but Dems will always do it so it follows that Republicans will have to as well. And I don’t mean he should’ve stiffed or been combative with Obama but he is smart and he should know that the media that he always does battle with would take every liberty to help Obama with every compliment he made and been a little mindful of that.

HOWEVER it has been an adamant point of mine that yes if a couple of ridiculously staged photo ops would swing the momentum that Romney had after the horrible job Obama has done then we would’ve never won anyway if everyone is that easily manipulated.

Romney will win if we can hold down the fraud and lawsuits, but it should be a blowout, and it is a 2% race right now, not nearly enough to defeat a vote theft ridden machine.

The more lousy the incumbent Democrat is the more moderate our candidate is. Gee I am beginning to think there could be a pattern there. Cheer up at least Ehud Barak says Iran has given up on building a bomb.

I don't think any of these photo ops have/will pay off for 0 or Christy. I don't think many are fooled by someone who's run the country into the ground, who suddenly slips on an AF1 jacket and a jumbo governor trying to act mad.

Sandy is 0's Katrina and Christy is Ray Nagin...not even Kathleen Blanco...by making sure his mug is in every pic w/0. Christy hasn't done himself any favors by posing with the Poser.

Maybe not from a political standpoint right now, but in other ways he sure has.

Chris Christie is the governor of a state that was bankrupt long before Hurricane Sandy formed in the Atlantic Ocean. If Uncle Sam doesn't come to the table to cover 100% of the public cost of the recovery in New Jersey, the state is going to be facing a complete financial collapse next year.

Oh -- and Christie is up for re-election in 2013, too.

What’s funny about some of those pix is the badge Obama is wearing on his Air Force One leather jacket. It says:

Barack Obama
Commander in Chief

Is it to remind others of his title, or himself?

This is pure bull. Morris designed today's diatribe so that in a year when memories fade a goggle search will reveal yesterdays prediction as well as today's and he can claim he was correct no matter the outcome.

When Monday arrives all these politicians will be feeling the wrath of the victims of this storm. The high fives Chris, Bloomberg and Obama were handing out will be a sad reminder of their shallowness. Sandy is a negative.

I view it differently. He says we shouldn't assume it will be a landslide and we should work as hard as hell thru election day. He is warning against overconfidence after his many rosy predictions.

The fact is that Obama remains at 47 or 48 four days before the election. Not good for an incumbent.

I have never been a Christie fan and couldn’t understand why Ann Coulter was so gung-ho about him. I found him to be bullish and a show off. In my opinion, he lacked the temperament and self control to be President or Vice-President.

I agree 100% with the second paragraph of your post! I wanted to slug him when he was walking arm in arm with Obama. There was no need for all the praising he was doing... a polite recognition was all that was needed.

” run in 2016 as a Dem. What the hell, the Dem’s have no bench... Think about it, it makes perfect sense... “

Good point. He is from a Dem state. He would claim that “the Republican party left him” and would appear bi-partisan.

I do think Christie was a little too effusive in his praise like a kid in school overly praising the jocks so they can be popular too.

I think that is a fair way to state it with the caveat that we really don't know what Obama has been doing behind the scenes. I mean it is his job after all and he is standing for election in less than week. So it is reasonable to assume that Obama would want to look good and do everything he can for NJ at this critical juncture. If so then Christie may have been truthful in praising him.

However it is a matter of style. Christie was a bit over the top in the way he praised someone for perhaps doing their damn job. I say perhaps because I still have no idea what Obama actually did or is doing.

Arrogance and glibness has been selling like hotcakes. Romney & Ryan make such a nice contrast. Romney doesn’t act like he’s a celebrity, just a guy who thinks he can help.

Christy is starting to wear faster than he is aware.

Whoa whoa whoa people... if u think one day changes an election like this then you are not looking at this with much realistic perspective. First we all know Morris has been out on a limb with is hyped landslide analogy. Second Christie has to do for his state as Governor what he has to do in such a disaster moment and that is to kiss Federal a**. Yes its the last week of an election and the weather thing took the spiral of Benghazi off the table but can this move an entire nation after a year of campaigning and if so... then we should all jump off a bridge.... stay calm, stay focused... emit radiation of power thoughts... MITT ROMNET PRESIDENT!

Don’t worry, I didn’t say that seeing Christy hand in hand with Obama was a gamechanger and don’t believe that, given that the Jersey shore is a war zone and can’t possibly help Obama with his cronies slow response. These people have food on their mind, not voting on Tuesday.

We were just saying that strong arrogant personalities repel over time, particularly in politics. Chris is what Chris is, and I like it when he is giving the union hell, but gushing over a commie who could not possibly care less, unless it helps him, is a channel changer, if you get my drift.
