    I’ve been wondering about Christie’s abject turnaround about Obama’s assistance for Jersey. Christie strikes me as the kind of person prone to speaking his mind when he’s angry. Was he angry about what Romney’s proposals would mean for states like his, who face the brunt of nature’s wrath every year? Did he finally realize how hollow yelling “THEY DON’T DESERVE THAT!” becomes when suddenly “they” includes you?
    And how sad has our country become when simply recognizing the good actions of someone “across the aisle” is newsworthy? (I mean, seriously, I don’t expect Christie to suddenly start promoting Obama for president; grateful acknowledgement does not equal some sort of “I’ve seen the light!” conversion.)

    I’ve often disagreed with many of Christies views on specifics, but have always admired that he DOES SAY WHAT HE MEANS, and means what he SAYS. Even if “the other party”, it’s something that commands respect, which Chris will get none of for his current stance, from his “own” party.

    Christie has to accept assistance, New Jersey is broke.
    But since god sent the storm to punish them for that Jersey Shore TV show you would think the religious right would be saying they deserved it.

    you check Romney’s own record as Governor of Massachusetts.
    The city of Peabody Massachusetts is a quiet borough north of Boston, neighboring Salem in Essex County. Historically tied to the tanning industry and agriculture, it was an early hotspot in the automobile industry. Through the town runs the Ipswich River, which is where the problems for Mitt Romney originate.

    The state developed a flood prevention plan. With that plan in place, flooding would no longer be an issue should severe rain return to the area. The total cost would have been a paltry $5.7 million, a drop in the bucket compared to the hundreds of millions in damages caused by flooding.
    The measure, prepared, detailed, and ready to go, hit the governors desk for signature. And Governor Romney promptly vetoed it.
    In 2004, severe rain caused the river to overflow, causing widespread flooding.

    You forgot to mention the nearly 87% non-Repub State Legislators could have easy overwritten it… after all the town was next to that river for about hundred years before Mitt won that MA election ….maybe the Legislators could not find it on the map because it is pronounced “pee- bid – dee” instead of the expected “pee-buddy”
