The governor rushed to his wife’s defense on Monday, reiterating the first lady’s point that her charity was never meant to provide immediate relief, the Associated Press reported.

But Gov. Christie’s demand for patience stood in stark contrast to his outrage just a couple of months ago, when he felt New Jersey wasn’t getting the relief it needed. In January, he infamously called Congress "disgraceful" over lawmakers' initial failure to pass legislation for Hurricane Sandy relief.

"This used to be something that was not political,” Christie said at the time, when the House delayed bringing a Sandy aid bill to the floor.“Disaster relief used to be something that you didn't play games with."

Though the Christies insist the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund is following standard protocol, some victims desperate for help aren’t satisfied with their approach.

"That's absolutely 100 percent unacceptable, because we want help yesterday," Gigi Liaguno-Dorr, a restaurant owner whose business was devastated by Sandy, told the Asbury Park Press. "She's the governor's wife. If anybody can push it through, she can. Let's move it."

You Repubs are so funny. You still don't get it therefore you will lose another election. The ONLY candidate that could win a national election for the GOP is Chris Christie. But you Repubs won't allow that to happen because he is not full of hate and might actually work with the other side to get things done.
P.S. Yes, Why don't you Repubs run another Bush for President !! Great idea.

Dig in their heels deeper and resurrect the same old crap!!
The Galts of the country may prefer Jeb Bush! The Teapartyers; probably favor a nutjob like them, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.
The old moderates may die off or retire, John McCain, Lindsey Graham etc.
Don't forget the real hardcore ones prefer Ted Nugent and/or whichever firebrand preacher is the flavor of the day and hasn't been caught with his pants down with a prostitute.

Wow, if you look up the definition of "misconstrues", you're picture would be beside it.
Obama's "spending cuts" were rejected unanimously by Senate Democrats because he proposed even more spending.
Look, Carol., you said spending cuts. There were spending cuts on the table by Obama in many instances.

Carol received notice that here trash collection is going from $65 every three moths to $90 every three months.

Carol shopped round & contracted a new collector that will charge $70.00 every three months.

Did Carol cut her future spending?

When we talk budgets & looking ten years out, it is all future spending.

Republicans only talk of cutting future spending. Ryan's budget cut only future spending.

So, Carol, unless you run screaming down the street how Republicans have not put spending cuts on the table, STFU.

Reducing future spending goes toward balancing the budget because as the economy grows, so do revenues.

The quickest way to reduce the deficit is to grow the economy. If a stimulus effort for infrastructure work would help grow the economy, then it is worth the spending. Our infrastructure is in dire need.

So if we cut spending, increase revenues& reinvest a small potion of that into growing our economy, then it will help on all levels.

Boehner rejected 4 trillion in deficit cuts that Obama proposed.

Which part of 'no solutions by Senate Democrats for the last three years' did you not understand?
The Democrats only want to tax and spend. Any "viable solutions" other than that is rejected.
Is that your idea of viable solutions and NOT reforms, restructuring and cutting back on federal spending?
I don't give a fck about the Democrats, we were talking about how the Republicans are just wasting time and not presenting any viable solutions, please try and focus, I am begging you.

Rove Says Media Should Stop Calling Elections Prematurely

Karl Rove on Tuesday suggested that American media could learn something from the papal conclave about not calling elections prematurely — a point the Republican strategist argued futilely during an infamous on-air Election Night meltdown.

Appearing on Fox News, Rove invoked references to domestic politics to speak jokingly about the process of selecting the next pope.

"Thank God we don't have exit polls or early returns," Rove cracked. "They do it the right way. They get to the final vote and the decision and then they let the smoke get it."

Continuing the riff, Rove suggested that political journalists in the United States could take a cue from that process.

"Maybe there's a message there for American media," Rove said. "Maybe we better wait, rather than try to call it, let the election go to its final conclusion and let the results speak for themselves."

The joke harkened back to Election Night, when Rove challenged the decision by networks to call Ohio, and the election, for President Barack Obama at a relatively early hour in the evening. Contributing to Fox's election coverage, Rove contended that the conservative cable news network had jumped the gun by putting the Buckeye State in Obama's column.

Huntsman has a bright future in the Democrat party. His support in the Republican primaries was negligible.

the thing is Obamacare was actually the creation of the Conservative Hertiage Foundation and called "Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans" by by Stuart M. Butler, Ph.D. from 1989 and was also the model used for Massachusetts healthcare law which is known as Romneycare.
