That's hilarious! Kicked to the curb by Christy, the darling of Ann Coulter.

Chris Christie may be a hard-head, but at least he has integrity. Thank you Mr. Christie, for having some moral fiber.

Governor Christie deserves all the credit in the World...He did the right thing, he did the job he was elected to do...He put the people, of our State, before Politics...We needed our Governor here in NJ, not being used for a photo op, by Mitt Romney...Just goes to show Romney's character, that he would expect the Governor, who is overseeing the worst disaster our State probably ever went thru, to drop everything he was dealing with, to go to PA, for a campaign rally...And he said no...Bravo Governor Christie, you have earned my vote in 2013...Just for the record, I am a liberal democrat, however I will vote for any candidate, Republican, or Democrat, who I feel is doing what's best for the people they represent, not what's best for their Party...

Chris Christie did the only ethical and decent thing to do in the situation.

Got to give the devil his dues..... I guess. Best to not forget he has horns and a long pointy tail though.

Yeah, I agree, Cynthia. Gotta give the Mob Boss his cudoes on this one. But I still chuckle that he stood up for what was right for his state and not for his precious party or his Sociopath In Chief. I think he sees the writing on the wall and does not want to be associated with the Fascist because Christie himself wants to run in 2016.

He has done the right thing and perhaps the President's response to the hurricane was enlightening to Christie.

"All in all, it's a lot of things that require focus. We're moving toward sort of a new normal here in New Jersey," the aide said. "The governor's been pretty clear that his number one priority is the safety and security of New Jerseyans and all his efforts are focused on Hurricane Sandy recovery right now."

While Romney is saying Christie is "giving it all of his heart and his passion to help the people of his state." and "They're in a hard way, and we appreciate his hard work. Thank you, governor," his campaign staff are not being so charitable. "You can't tell me he couldn't have gone over there for a night rally," a Romney campaign source told HuffPost.

Don't get me wrong, I think that Romney really feels like his staff and was ticked off that Chris Christie didn't just pop down the highway to assist him. His outward voice was all show to make him seem likeable --- totally insincere.

Christie has his priorities straight --- the people of his state, the people who he swore to serve --- come before some fool named Romney!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

Christie did the right thing for Christie. But it's still kinda cool.

If Christie attended the rally, don't you think the citizens of NJ who are without power would be complaining and rightfully so? He did what he had to do as the governor of a state just hit with a powerful hurricane. Just shows how little brains Romney really has for asking him in the midst of the crisis.
