On Tuesday, October 30, the day after Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, New York City, and Long Island with devastating losses, Mitt Romney converted his Kettering, Ohio campaign rally into a storm relief effort. He personally loaded bottled water onto a truck that quickly headed east to aid the storm victims.
In contrast to its stated "lean forward" policy, which calls for the advance staging of critical inventory in nearby storage facilities, FEMA's bottled water and pre-packaged food didn't arrive in New Jersey until that same day, twenty four hours after the storm hit. Most of the agency's large inventory of bottled water and pre-packaged meal supplies remained in FEMA warehouses in Georgia and Maryland even as residents of New Jersey, New York, and Long Island struggled to secure the basic necessities of daily life.
Significant local distribution of FEMA-provided bottled water and pre-packaged meals didn't begin in New York City until late Thursday, seventy-two hours after the storm hit. Local distribution of bottled water and pre-packaged meals throughout the areas hard hit by Sandy remains uneven. Some areas have too much, while many others remain without water and food almost a week after the storm hit.
On Wednesday, President Obama held a 90 minute photo-op in New Jersey with Governor Christie, then quickly flew out of the state to continue campaigning in other states.
ROMNEY/RYAN 2012 AND 2016
What else was to be expected from a guy who loves it when all the attention is on him, except for when he is caght in murderous acts of our people and against our country, and outright lies? Chris Christie is a fool if he thinks Obama cared anything more than for a photo op, lying again when he said noone left behind. What's he doing now? Using a line that out military takes to heart-noone left behind. Now he's mister bad-ass? Too late, you already left them behind as soon as you got your photo op, as usual moron.
And I do not believe Chris Christie believes he really cares. Something is up more than meets the eye, even if he were to come out and stand by Romney. I doubt now it would be that strong, without lavish endeserved praise for Obama intermingled.
Christie is a self centered a-hole if you ask me!!! I agreed with Mark Levin from day one!!!! Christie would never make a good president because he is too rude to people who question him.....you can't do that when addressing the people!!!! The libs are shouting from the roof top that Christie gave obama a bump in the polls and squashed Romney's momentum.....maybe for a couple of days......but the real Christie came out and people got a good look at who and what he really is.....he just wants to be in front of the tv cameras and gloat...and use whoever can make him look big....it's too bad he doesn't need any help in that area since he takes up the entire screen on your TV.....he's a big blow hard, and those that praised him in the past, know exactly who and what he is!!!! Maybe he will run as a democrat in 2016, because I doubt the Republicans want the traitor on their side!!!!! jmho
I don't tust Christie either! There are a bunch of people in New Jersey who do not like him either! As you said his manner in which he speaks IMO is extremeley rude and almost has a bullie atmosphere to it!!! I don't like him at all!!
I understand the anger towards Christie, but I'm not sure it's really justified. It's standard procedure to thank the sitting president when they come to your state and offer aid. Sometimes you have to kiss ass to get help for your people.
I haven't heard anything Christie said, just read a few things. Nothing I've seen said he endorsed Obama, just thanked him for getting help to his people. Was there more than that?
Oh I'm sure Christie was doing all he could for his State, and would even make a deal with obama if he had to....which he did!!! It was a great photo op for obama and the liberals are milking it to the hilt.....even SNL made a mockery out of Romney!!!! obama now wants to come across as reaching across the aisle and working with the other party.....to me.....IT'S A LITTLE TOO LATE!!!!!!! But the liberals are gloating this morning on the talking heads shows...in fact.....one liberal said this:NBC NEWS' SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: HURRICANE MOMENT 'HANDED TO OBAMA FROM ABOVE'
NBC News' Savannah Guthrie provides expert and hard-hitting political analysis during the Meet the Press roundtable.
See....even God is on obama's side!!!!!!
Michael..You are right on that. IMO knowing Christie as you said I saw some ass kissing there..the normal thank you's I can understand and I agree but maybe it was just me but I read more into it than just that. Mostly though I was replying to many other times I have seen and heard Christie and maybe that is part of where I got my opinion also! I just felt he went a little overboard. But like you say..when they want help sometimes it involves the ass kissing part!
NBC NEWS' SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: HURRICANE MOMENT 'HANDED TO OBAMA FROM ABOVE'
ROTFLMAO....So now they are going to get Religious!?!? What hypocrites!! And to bring God's name into the equation in order to make Obama look good is an insult to God!!!
From above where??? I realized he as about as low down as a traitor can get, but I didn't realize he was so far down even the devil had to give him a hand up!
Actually....I would bet that old rev. wright might have played into this one....maybe now the chickens have come home to roost????
