New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie comforts Kerri Berean, 33, a Chapman Street resident, in this Nov. 3, 2012 file photo taken in Little Ferry, N.J. Christie was in many ways the face of the storm, whether he was embracing President Barack Obama during a visit to the battered coast or consoling a tearful 9-year-old girl who had lost her house and told ...

Its Bush's fault. Again! That region is a provincial area with many people having family within driving distance. The progressive utopia after Sandy could have been ten times worse if not for that.

Christie is a HUGE disappointment for Republicans.
A HUGE one.
Of course he is.

A governor actually trying to help the citizens of his state, doing the job he was elected to do, would be a HUGE teabagger "disappointment".

Poor teabagger.

Close.

It was teabaggers.

"Christie blamed Congress, which took three months to approve a $50.7 billion relief package for the region, and a thicket of red tape put in place to prevent the type of fraud that occurred after Hurricane Katrina".

THREE MONTHS.

We all remember the teahadists that voted against Sandy aid, until their own pork was added. Christie took the easy route and blamed DC, like the predictable tool. East Coast voters will be reminded of the teahadists that put them second, in the mid-terms.

They sure didn't.

Instead of identifying the politicians who inserted the "pork" in the storm aid bill.

Teabaggers WHINED.

And obstructed.

Telling sentence in the article which shows even Christie can be childish and petty:

"Christie refused to send an administration representative to any of four post-Sandy hearings because, he said, the sessions were led by Democrats out to score political points."

Ironic when you remember the hot air and chest beating from the repubes who screeched over photo ops with Christie and President Obama.

I hope that Christie keeps it in mind that
there were a bunch of Republicans in Congress
who didn't want any federal money going to
help his state after Superstorm Sandy.

Naturally, these same Republicans would
demand federal help for their state if it
got hit by some natural disaster.

By that's conservatism. Denounce federal help
(socialism) for others, but suck it up when
it comes their way.

Like Michelle Bachmann getting $250,000 in farm
subsidies from the federal and state
government for her "family" farm while blasting
socialism.

Socialism tastes pretty good when she's the
one getting it. Slurp! Slurp!

The left is hardly spurning Chris Christie. At least I for one am not. Whether for political expediency or for principled reasons, Christie has emerged as someone who has done some good work for the people of New Jersey.
Of all the Republican names mentioned for the presidential nomination, Christie is the only one who would represent anything like a threat to a Democratic presidential victory.

If I have to choose between Hillary, and Christie I choose Christie. But he isn't my first choice. I like Dr Carson. He is so smart, and has a beautiful story of parental love, hard work, and success.

There were progressive add ons to the bill that caused that. Politics wields it ugly head many times in Washington. Never let a crisis....

The teabag crowd would have only been happy if Christie had backhanded Obama instead. Chris Christie is one of the decent Republicans. Much better than Cruz and other idiots that caused the shutdown of the federal government this month.

wow larry!
a lucid, well thought out response...
what happened?
i agree he HAS done some wonderful things for New Jersey...he should stay there.

btw, in YOUR opinion he's the only threat to a democrat victory...
in my opinion, a real republican would be a threat...not a Romney republican, not a "progressive" republican like Cristie and CERTAINLY not a McCain republican...
