October Surprise from Chris Christie



Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

Hurricane Sandy wasn’t the only October storm to do damage in NJ and other states. Unlike Sandy, this storm wasn’t predicted and no one saw it coming – although perhaps they should have.

Chris Christie’s October Surprise

Governor Christie’s lambastic demeanor is often newsworthy. But his “softer” side may be far more treacherous. If a picture is worth a thousand words, NJ’s Big Daddy painted a mural the size of the Sistine Chapel last week when he walked the Jersey Shore with his new buddy, Barack Hussein Obama. The Governor (by no means a political neophyte) labeled questions about his slobbering affection for his Party’s chief opposition as “silly.” But his actions no doubt influenced undecided voters. Pictures do paint a thousand words. This picture painted the man now occupying the White House as a leader and someone who is able to work with the opposition. The artist, Chris Christie, may refuse to sign his name to this particular piece of work but the credit goes to him without question.

NJ’s Big Daddy and artist extraordinaire has also proved quite a dancer, too. After he provided the October Surprise all pundits were anticipating, he taught independents how to sway and the rest of the country how to rock and reel.

Of course, this wasn’t the first surprise the dance master and artist extraordinaire delivered. The Republican Convention provided a glimpse into the self-aggrandizing cabalist’s duplicitous nature. When the Governor stepped up to the microphone, everyone expecting him to land at least one punch to the Obama campaign didn’t see a party warrior. They saw a small man with an ego as large as his girth attempting to steal Romney’s thunder. Perhaps his attempt failed that night but it didn’t fail on his home turf – the Jersey Shore.

Of course, NJ was never in play for Governor Romney. That is not the point. The point is that the picture of Governor Christie praising Obama for a job well done, made Mr. Obama look presidential and like a leader, something he was not able to accomplish throughout his four-year term. Was it enough to sway the election? Only God knows but this writer finds it more than disturbing. If Governor Romney considered Governor Christie a supporter and friend, then I must ask, with friends like that…

So, Chris Christie praises Barack Obama for his handling of Hurricane Sandy, ignoring typical spiteful partisanship, and he’s a traitor?
Is it completely impossible to imagine any sort of praise for Obama?
Christie has spoken against the president and liberals many times, and has championed conservatism.
I would say it’s a testament to his character that he was able to put aside petty rivalries for the trying ordeal that is a hurricane.

I would have no problem with Christie praising Obama if he actually did something well. I understand he is governor and his frist priority must be the well being of his state. But this was the worst recovery in all of history. We were out of power for over a week, some are still without power, gas lines are still long. Either there is something wrong with our infrastructure or something funny is going on.

[…] the almost ribald hug fest of the soon to be ex-governor of New Jersey as he single high-handedly did morefor Obama’s re-election chances than the hundreds of millions of dollars the campaign spent on […]
