Chris Christie Appears to be a Good Ol’ Guy

     New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie

If you want to know just how low and how bad the Republican Party has gotten, just follow the Chris Christie story and you’ll see how low-down rotten and smelly the Grand Old Party has become. I was totally turned off by the story as I read it a couple of mornings ago in the NY Times.

I read the story on Tuesday morning in the NY Times: After Obama, Christie Wants a G.O.P. Hug! My land, is everything political and is there no relief? I urge you to read the story.

Here’s one of the criticisms of the New Jersey Governor’s behavior while President Obama was visiting his storm wrecked state following Hurricane Sandy: “Why had he stood so close to the President on the tarmac?”

“Mr. Christie locked arms with Mr. Obama, flew with him on Marine One, talked with him daily and went out of his way to praise him publically as ‘outstanding,’ ‘incredibly supportive’ and worthy of ‘great credit.’”

I guess political party rules require that one does not do such a thing. This folks is where politics has gone in this nation – it is especially where Republican Party politics has gone. Thank goodness they got spanked on November 6.

Here’s hoping there is a good political future in store for Chris Christie because he seems a genuinely good man.

By the way, the New York Times notes in its story, presidential candidate Mitt Romney did not call the New Jersey Governor to offer up sympathies and/or encouragement.

Here’s a story that appeared in the New York Times two days after the election that highlights Obama’s good response to the New York/New Jersey disaster and Christie’s appreciation for that response!

Please take note of the City Room Blog in Tuesday’s NY Times (20 November 2012) about Chris Christie’s amazing popularity among NY City residents.

“’The love fest between New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie and President Barack Obama seems to have moved voters especially,’ said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. ‘While all four leaders get very high marks, it seems a hug or two never hurts.’”
