Posted on 12/06/2012 1:44:30 PM PST by IbJensen
President Obama hosted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at the White House Thursday morning in an unannounced visit that comes as the administration is preparing a major emergency spending request to cover damage from Hurricane Sandy.
News reports have said the request would be $50 billion, and Mr. Christie reportedly wants tens of billions of dollars more.
White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to talk about specifics from the meeting or to say how much Mr. Obama will request.
"The president is very focused on assisting New Jersey and New York and other affected states in their recovery efforts," he said. "We are working on a request and that request is still being developed and we continue to hope we'll have that request sent up soon."
During the super storm that came during the last days of the presidential campaign, Mr. Christie made headlines for heaping praise on the president for his handling if the federal government's response to Sandy.

Christie might as well switch parties so he can hob-knob with his new BFF all the time.
The WH lookout yells
“Thar, he blows!”
Hey Christie, just go ahead and put that (D) there - you know you want to.
So Christie gets the reach-around after all.
Wouldn’t surprise me if he got a cabinet position. He’s probably delusional enough to think that being part of an Obama cabinet will boost his chances of getting the GOP nod in 2016.
I guess it wasn’t enough for them to see the disaster in New Jersey together. They had to see the disaster in The White House too.......
(I wonder if they hugged.....)
Christie..the new Progressive Democrap..out for himself
Im surprised after Sandy someone didn’t look at christie and say quick kick it back in the water
Christie is a turncoat.
In the Lincoln Bedroom?
I forget what movie or TV show it was from. But in a similar situation a pillow was tossed in front of the guy looking for the favor. KNEEL FAT BOY!
I still believe that Christie was pissed that Romney didn’t ask him to be the VP and the whole 0bama hugfest was to stick it to Romney.
Why didn’t he invite Romney (possible president) to tour the devastation, at the time he was leading in the polls ?
IMO, Christie saw that if Romney won, and won a second term, the Paul Ryan(VP) would run next for president, the first possible chance for him to run would have been 2024 or 2028 - I’ll bet he is on the Jeb Bush team.
I wouldn’t be so sure of that! Have you seen the guy???
I’m surprised Marine Biologist George Costanza didn’t find a Titleist blocking the blow-hole.
ISGASB...I Scarcely Give A Smelly Obama.
Christie is now an official wart hog.
Christie finally re-uniting with the party of his heart.
No one has arms that long.
I was expecting Lautenberg to kick the bucket soon. Now Christie will appoint a Dem as his successor.
Not literally, silly!
On the issue of language, I took a weeks vacation to weed the back half of my back yard. It is about half an acre with weeds at my eye level. It was faster (and cheaper) to do it by hand than use gas powered gadgets. So it was just me and Shawniqua. “Shawniqua?” you ask. Yes......that’s what I call my hoe....
Christie was ALWAYS all about Christie and he’ll turn his back on Obama just as quickly as he did to the GOP. Guy’s a loose cannon, reminds me of all the other Rhinos who are only out for themselves, not our Country. Boehner and many other so-callled Republicans are destroying conservatism and must be kicked off the platforms. We must proceed with charges against the Demoncrats for rigging the election, cheating and spending our future. I am sick of all this and I hope to God someone steps up and gets rid of these communists in Washington. The blood suckers have and will continue to ruin our capitalistic and God fearing Nation. God Bless America and to hell with anyone who doesn’t share that sentiment.
Immediately after the meeting Christie announced that nj would not take part I. The obanacare exchange
I may of been dreaming but I thought I heard that NJ said today they would not be setting up an obamacare exchange.
I hope Kirspy Kream got cash cuz the check is gonna bounce.
I don’t like his hugging, chumming, and hanging with the Marxist-in-Chief either, but I believe he is doing it to shore up his support for re-election in a deep blue state. Is he better for the people of New Jersey than Corzine, or Menendez, or some other Jackass creep? I guess so. He saw what happened to Scott Brown, losing to Lie-a-watha in deep blue Massachusetts and decided to associate himself with the Devil himself, hoping to secure more votes for himself. Remember, Scott Brown was closely associated with Christie because he defeated Martha Coakley just two months after Christie surprised Corzine.
I told everyone he was pulling a Charlie Crist !
It’s very simple, folks. Don’t vote for anyone Ann Coulter likes.
