KEANSBURG, N.J. New Jersey's famously tough-talking governor finally got a hug from his longest-running unrequited love.
The famously liberal Springsteen had never previously acknowledged the Republican governor.
Christie says he wept at home after talking by phone to his idol, calling it a major highlight during a tough week.

She did, on Hannity last night. She said that when Obama was first elected, he denied federal education funding to New Jersey because of Christie, so Christie felt like he had to do something to ensure that Jersey would get federal help for Sandy recovery.
Chris Christie goes berserk when criticised about appointing a Muslim judge:
Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, its crazy! he cried. The guy is an American citizen! He concluded that the Sharia Law business is just crap and Im tried of dealing with the crazies, adding with disgust and frustration that its just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.
No they got together once. But Krispy Kreme's Fatty Arbuckle ouevre doesn't project well (or too well) in HDTV. That's lookist but that's a fact.
As has his cheerleader, Ann Coulter. Weird.
They won’t fess to that, and they won’t fess to saying it had to be Trump as Pres either.....
“She did, on Hannity last night. She said that when Obama was first elected, he denied federal education funding to New Jersey because of Christie, so Christie felt like he had to do something to ensure that Jersey would get federal help for Sandy recovery.”
don’t recall her saying all of that. She did allude to it.
It’s not good enough anyway ofr either her nor CC.
He should have acted with as much character as anyone with responsibility is expected to act, and if not more, and turned away from BO like Rick Perry did regarding the fires.
It brought BO’s mishandling of Govt funds (FEMA funds). Anne said FEMA shouldn’t work that way, but we have to accept that it does. Well, yes, anne, with enabling governors and their fans it does.
Well, no it shouldn’t and CC had a chancce to say, “hey, Bronco, we don’t need FEMA funds so badly that we have to pretend they’re yours personally, so we NJers are just not going to grovel.”
As a republican, that’s what CC is expected to do. But NJ Pubs maybe expect us to realize Norhteast Pubs are not quite the same. as others.
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king!!
“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king!!”
I never liked Christie, I have been vindicated with his actions.
“I know there were several FREEPERS out there saying it had to be Christie...that he would be the right choice for POTUS or VEEP.”
I’ve always supported Christie in general because of how bad things are here in NJ; he was elected to fix them and is doing a decent job (ask the thousands of laid-off municipal employees). I’ve always maintained that Christie wouldn’t play well outside of states with similar problems, and have NEVER suggested he should be veep. I think the number of FReepers who thought he should was always fairly small.
I did not know about the E key of Bruce. I’ll bet he can’t even sing in D or A minor.
Mr Open chord.
To be fair to the Boss,he does throw F sharp minor into that progression once in a while.
WHY THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS, how dare you say that!
The filthy Communist couldn't sing his way out of a wet paper bag...he just hollars out of tune.
The idiot looks like he's pumping water on that axe.
Wow, this thread’s getting tough on a guy who’d record so far in NJ is nothing short of amazing. On top of that, his state is in big troble, and he announced TO EVERYBODY that he could give a rip about the election at this point.
He’s got people in the cold right now, FEMA’s completely let him down, and he’s got union thugs turning away non-union crews trying to help get the lights back on.
He probably hasn’t slept in a while, to boot.
I grew up idolizing Springsteen too. I haven’t bought any of his stuff since Tunnel of Love, which was pretty weak too.
Christie is being a Jersyite first, and a politician second. Springsteen’s a washed up hack, but then Elvis went that way too. You see the guy the way you’d like to remember him.
Not everything is about politics. I suggest the Christie-haters put a quaalude under their tongue and send up a few words to the Lord that this day turns out to be the landslide we all hope it is.
We’ll need a few more after that towards Romney being as conservative as he says he’s going to be.
Otherwise, well . . .
Well then he should have waited before proclaiming what a great job Obama was doing.
