Chris Christie is the best thing that has happened to New Jersey. He works the middle ground and takes a lot of dishonest political flak for it. After years of supremely dishonest and sleezy governors, this state is finally on the rise. His opponent would have the state return to criminal ways.

Nothing screws up government like the republicans. They're like 4th graders that hate school. Zero thought about the future...
$50.7 billion!!! 5.5 million people...That's enough to rebuild the entire coast homes. How much of that will get looted by the right? Watch for Christi coming out of this a very rich man.

"I like Chris Christie. I thinks he's done a great job."

Yeah, in cloud cuckooland. He's a disgrace, but he may look good compared to other Republican governors, but every democratic governor is head and shoulders above him. And if you believe his administration has nothing to do with the bad crap going down, then you must also believe he's a slim, trim athletic type.

A few things...

John, you are 100% correct that Governor Christie is the best thing that has happened to Jersey in decades. If you don't know Jersey. You will never understand.


You can try to demonize Governor Christie for any number of things but when it comes to Jersey. He is true to her. He is sincere. There is no truth said in words denying that.

As far as Sandy's costs. Live in Jersey. Understand what it costs to do anything. Understand the cost of construction. Understand that 85% of our state saw damage and was affected. From our shorelines which were decimated to our forests inland that resemble graveyards for trees now. Homes, municipal buildings damaged. Waterways clogged with debris. Road ways blocked and ripped to shreds. My entire block saw trees down on every home and every property.. People flooded out in our cities. Residents without power for two weeks+. Gas shortages (which by the way Governor Coumo copied what Governor Christie put in place to alleviate the tensions created from it) It wasn't just the shore. It was 85% of our State.

A state that contributes through taxation very generously to the Federal coffers with little return compared to most other states.



The money is still there waiting to be given once it makes it through all the regulations put in place because of the corruption of Katrina. This is true.

I think if the democrats were in office. They would have found a way to be rid of that money by now. Talk about looters...

So if this is the best you have to try to demonize Christie. Good luck with that.

One other thing, Governor Christie had a pretty high approval rating before Sandy. It just soared higher after. This in a state where democrats outnumber republican voters 4 to 1. There is a reason for it.

I think it ridiculous to discount someone just because they are not what you are. He is actually a reasonable, sensible thinker.

Well, I beg to differ with all the wondrous things being said about this buffoon!
What Christie has is a great PR system.
One year later. long after the casinos were able to reopen, people are still homeless in parts of the state.
He is pandering to those he hopes will put him in the presidency,, and his policies in regard to women are atrocious!

Except one thing...He belongs to the republican party and the still homeless.

New Jersey does not stand alone in rebuild efforts. New York, Staten Island are in similar state.

The storm was huge, the damage immense. I would say we have come a long way and unfortunately for those still not home, it is too long.

Red tape. Regulations.

While it is not fair to those in need. Not exclusive to New Jersey or to Governor Christie.

Again, when in doubt name call.

Must be an election year.

All I know is I never want to live though days like that of the reign of terror of Jon Corzine and I would never support someone who supported him or the increased taxation caused by him and his buddies in Trenton.

Mitchell, if Governor Christie was pandering to any one he would not have dropped the suit against gay marriage which is law of the land in Jersey now. He reasonably decided enough was enough. Whether it goes against his grain or not. Whether it helps him politically or not.

What are his atrocious policies on women? His approval rating amongst women is awfully high too.
