Bipartisan Cooperation in the USA

ASBURY PARK, N.J.

President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s unlikely “bromance,” sparked last fall amid a natural disaster and a presidential campaign, blossomed into full flush Tuesday on their very public second date.

Obama was back in the Garden State to check up on the rebuilding effort seven months after he and the Republican governor took a helicopter tour to survey the destruction from Hurricane Sandy, which killed more than 100 and damaged houses and businesses along the Jersey Shore.

This time, the pair took a stroll along the Point Pleasant boardwalk, paused to inspect an unfinished sand sculpture and tried their hand at the Touchdown Fever football toss, where Christie — not usually considered the more athletic of the two — won the president a stuffed bear by throwing the ball through a tire.

“That’s because he’s running for office,” said Obama, who missed all five of his throws. They high-fived after Christie’s successful toss.

Once again amid a politically perilous moment, Obama came calling on Christie, whose embrace of him after the hurricane began a mutually beneficial relationship that violated any number of modern political taboos.

Scorned by many Republicans for boosting Obama’s reelection chances, Christie stood firm at the time, saying he welcomed the president’s support — including billions of dollars in federal aid. The payoff was capped Tuesday when Obama returned to herald the storm survivors as well as the state and federal emergency response.

“You are stronger than the storm,” the president told a crowd of hundreds, who waited for his remarks in a steady drizzle outside the Asbury Park Convention Hall on the city’s boardwalk.

“After all you’ve dealt with, after all you’ve been through, the Jersey Shore is back and it is open for business.”

Christie, who is up for reelection this fall, was as defiant as ever to critics in his party, praising Republicans, Democrats and independents for working together after Sandy hit.

“New Jersey is more important and our citizens’ lives are more important than any kind of politics at all,” he said.

You are a liberal loon. You are right. In your mind anyone who disagrees with your thinking is a nut. In your world anyone who happens to have conservative leanings is sick. Those who believe that; less federal deficit spending would be a good thing, lower taxes would be a good thing, not being forced to buy a product nobamakare would be a good thing, not spying on journalists would be good, distributing guns to the Mexican drug cartels was a stoopid action, bombing Libya was illegal, failing to go to the aid of our ambassador in Benghazi was cowardly.
"homo" we hear you loud and clear, your are a simple troll, one waiting in line for America to become a welfare state so the hand you have out will be filled thanks to the efforts of those who work, provide for their own and pay taxes.

You are one sicksonofabitch. McCain can offer them nothing. Leave it to nobama, he will choose which rebel faction will receive aid. You can bet it will be the most radical of the groups, the ones who have no respect for women, the ones that will have the goal of establishing a society in which murdering muslim terrorists are accepted.

<quoted text> California was the very first test case on whether Obamacare was going to be a success and with the preliminary results in it looks like it was a very big SUCCESS!:-D "No doubt there will be problems, as there are with any large new government initiative, and in this case, we have the added complication that many Republican governors and legislators are doing all they can to sabotage reform. Yet important new evidence — especially from California, the law’s most important test case — suggests that the real Obamacare shock will be one of unexpected success." ... "Obamacare is a deeply conservative reform, not in a political sense (although it was originally a Republican proposal) but in terms of leaving most people’s health care unaffected. Americans who receive health insurance from their employers, Medicare or Medicaid — which is to say, the vast majority of those who have any kind of health insurance at all — will see almost no changes when the law goes into effect.
There are, however, millions of Americans who don’t receive insurance either from their employers or from government programs. They can get insurance only by buying it on their own, and many of them are effectively shut out of that market. In some states, like California, insurers reject applicants with past medical problems. In others, like New York, insurers can’t reject applicants, and must offer similar coverage regardless of personal medical history (“community rating”); unfortunately, this leads to a situation in which premiums are very high because only those with current health problems sign up, while healthy people take the risk of going uninsured.
Obamacare closes this gap with a three-part approach. First, community rating everywhere — no more exclusion based on pre-existing conditions. Second, the “mandate”— you must buy insurance even if you’re currently healthy. Third, subsidies to make insurance affordable for those with lower incomes.

If your position is correct, then all the conservatives crying foul are actually Constitutionally wrong.
Yeah this is your question’ So you're statement has been proven false. Otherwise she would be able to show where a president can wage all sorts of military engagements.’
The answer again” The President has constitutional power not only to retaliate against any person, organization, or State suspected of involvement in terrorist attacks on the United States, but also against foreign States suspected of harboring or supporting such organizations!!

Sounds like a decent guy.
He did his job. He is the one that said the democrats sold out the American people to save one of their own. I had to go get his book out of my library:
"Democrats in both houses sold out basic principles of law and decency for the sake of protecting one of their own. But most distressingly, the President of the United States of America and his White House water boys sold out the American people--not just in a one time-spasm of political expedience, but in a deliberate snarl of sophistry and cynical manipulation of public opinion, the singular aim of which was political self-preservation. In the process, he soiled not just himself, but the Constitution, the public trust, and the Presidency itself."

See what I mean?? Nobraina's ignorance all over this post of his.
Here's the truth, something Nobraina is terrified of:
"There's more good news for U.S. automakers.
"In the latest annual car-quality rankings from J.D. Power & Associates, General Motors showed improvement across all four of its brands—Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet and Buick—while Cadillac ranked fourth overall, up from ninth in 2011. The Chevy Malibu sedan and Buick Enclave crossover were rated the top vehicles in their class. Those sorts of honors were rare for GM during the dark days leading up to its 2009 bankruptcy filing.
GM's improved showing is a small vindication for the automaker, as well as for the Obama administration, which engineered the 2009 taxpayer bailout that kept GM alive. Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney opposed the bailout, a stance that will factor into this year's elections in key battleground states like Ohio and Michigan, which benefited from a rescue that preserved thousand of auto-worker jobs."
----------
It's easy to figure Nobraina out. He's a contrarian indicator, like Flake.
When they say something is bad, it really means it's good.
Like when they click their heels together and say;
"There's no such thing as climate change"
"There's no such thing as climate change"
"There's no such thing as climate change"

After all, what do 97% of Climatologists know, compared to Teabagger nitwits??
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Another Liberal Babe In Toyland. Your gullibility exceeds your ignorance.

The "Study" you are quoting is only for the first 90 days of ownership(IQS or JD Powers Initial Quality Study).

How much does the first 90 days mean? Poof. It's about as meaningful as a Magic Negro Commencement Speech at a black Affirmative Action college:]

But it's great for TV ads to jerks like you.

A little more meaningful would be the JD Powers 2013 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study ("Toyota Motor Corporation models earn seven segment awards; General Motors garners four awards.")

Keep laughing, Fool. There's much more sh it sliding down your toothless face.

I used to work for one of the Big Three and it was common knowledge that quality ratings were a private joke. JD Powers was laughed at amongst autoworkers. The word was, whoever pays JD Powers the most, gets the best ratings. I worked for a luxury brand and it was routine 6 and 7 days a week to have literally hundreds of cars parked out back of the plant waiting for repairs. It got so bad that the company had dozens of lots scattered across Detroit filled with cars waiting for repairs(Barbed Wire with junkyard dogs and Security Patrols to keep the blacks from stealing 'em). Worse, they had illegal Mexicans doing the repairs to keep costs down and the Union complained but, remember, Unions are pro-illegal so they were stuck between a rock and a hard place - they didn't yell very loud:>

Quality amongst the Big Three was so bad that they got together with Washington Beltway Image Makers and created the Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award - supposedly issued by the President himself:]

The very first year of that award being issued, guess who won it?
Yep. We did. Jaws across the shop floor collectively dropped and then the lunchtime laughing began. "Jim! I heard you bought your wife a Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award for Christmas. Is that true?"

You are a little baby that hasn't cut your teeth yet, doody:]

Bush and Obama deserve much credit for saving a major American Industry, esp. when idiots like Rmoney wanted to let them go under.
And you nitwits were dumb enough to think Rmoney could win.
The majority of Real Americans saw things differently.
Rmoney lies in the dustbin of history, where you live.

Yes, it matters because if the person making the assertion is not smart enough to know the difference between "eminent" and "imminent" then that person's opinion carries much less weight/credibility.
