Obama hosts Christie for surprise White House visit
Washington Times ^ | 12/6/2012 | Susan Crabtree

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's future political plans went down a Jersey sewer. He works like a Chicago pro (or is that 'ho?).

Christie might as well switch parties so he can hob-knob with his new BFF all the time.

Hey Christie, just go ahead and put that (D) there - you know you want to.

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.....)

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.

Oh sh!t!.

I was expecting Lautenberg to kick the bucket soon. Now Christie will appoint a Dem as his successor.

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....

Obama believes his personality and what he thinks is superior persuasion skills can win anyone over. He really looks upon himself as superior to any other.

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.

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.
