he could just shut his mouth
He didn’t have to answer the question. He acted like Romney was trying to horn in. He said he didn’t want to politicize the disaster and he did exactly that by praising Obama and shutting down the question on Romney. He’s a politician through and through and a rude one at that.
He had to explain that he couldn’t get on a helicopter because of the high winds. Can’t he direct the relief from the ground? He is worried he can’t pose for pictures without the helicopter ride. No one cares whether he is in a helicopter or not, except for Christie. It’s all about politics with this man.
