Genevieve Marie: Elandriel: Or, maybe he's actually being a governor of a state instead of just a partisan Republican.

You know, I'd chalk it up to that too if the praise wasn't so effusive. He very easily could have said something more along the lines of "President Obama and Fema have been very helpful and we appreciate their efforts" and that would still have been the right thing to do.
But I mean... he gave all kinds of detail on how the President went above and beyond, mentioning late night calls so the President could personally help expedite the disaster area declaration and also talking about how the President made sure he had a personal number to reach him in case he has any other needs.

That's... above and beyond normal praise. Nice to hear, for sure. But I still wonder if maybe there's something else going on there. Maybe Romney irked him this week, or maybe like you said, he's looking out for his own reelection prospects. Or who knows, maybe he's just being a decent guy and telling the truth?

Whole thing is weird though and I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

One of Christie's defining traits (speaking as somebody who's only seen him on the national news and clips on the internet, and never even been to NJ) seems to be that he doesn't know when to shut up. Apparently, that applies when he's praising somebody as well as when he's ranting.

Vindibudd: joonyer: Vindibudd: joonyer: Just a side note here: You get called a troll because your "points" are usually pointless and you're obviously just trying to piss people off. You rarely say anything of substance. Kind of like that awful comic. Hope you didn't quit your day job for that. Wow.

My points are generally in response to an opinion made by the typical FarkProg® (Fark Progressive). They are generally responded to with 1. BUSH EVIL 2. TROLL 3. OMG YOUR COMICS ARE AWFUL.

AGAIN, this is because your "points" are not points at all. Even in the face of derp, you need to present something logical, something factual or at least debatable. What you do is spit vitriol, and then you run away. But by all means, keep blaming those darn FarkProgs, they're the real problem, right?

Usage of the term "derp" is not instructive to advancing an argument. Rather than continually relying on Farker shorthand as a perceived stepping stone to intellectual superiority from with which to rain down your breathtakingly empty rhetoric, in future attempts to launch coherent salvos of well-reasoned expostulation, attempt to utilize actual English.

Also, feel free to define vitriol with pertinent excerpts. And I will not apologize for leaving Fark threads to participate in various activities of actual living. After all, it's generally myself engaging 30 of you. I'd be on here 24/7 if I were to respond to everyone who is desperate to hurl such awe-inspiring, debate winning, vocabulary defining, all-star terms like "derp."

DERP derp derp.

cman: 9/11, for instance, put many people who were solidly against Bush in Bushes corner. When shiat hits the fan we come together and we drop the Democrat/Republican/Communist/Reptilian moniker and remember that we are all American.

So what you're saying is that we're going to start bombing Ireland in a few days?

NJ should make a constitutional amendment demanding that a tuba ensemble follows Christie whenever he walks until he weighs 200 pounds.

Wendolyn the Wired: He's promised to reschedule Halloween, but he's being pretty vague on whether he'll ensure that New Jersey citizens have the opportunity to vote.

Halloween is tomorrow. Voting is a week from Thursday.

Glad to see Christie tell the GOP "Back off, crisis time now, politics later."

Fox News co-host Steve Doocy wondered when Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was going to get some of the same benefits from the hurricane with a photo op in disaster-stricken New Jersey towns.

"Over the last couple of months, you have appeared throughout the country, Governor, on behalf of Mitt Romney," Doocy remarked to Christie. "[W]e hear that perhaps Mr. Romney may do some storm-related events. Is there any possibility that Gov. Romney may go to New Jersey to tour some of the damage with you?"

"Hey, when can Romney exploit this disaster?". Way to worry about the things that matter, Steve, you ridiculous douchebag.

Shrugging Atlas: Vindibudd: Shrugging Atlas: Vindibudd: You FarkProgs® slay me, just because Christie says something nice about the president doesn't mean he's pissed at Romney, what's Romney going to do anyway? He's not in charge of anything at all. This is called bipartisanship btw.

Hold a campaign rally in Ohio it would seem.

Well he's not the president, so he can do anything he wants.

Exactly. And while the dead are still being pulled from the rubble why not have a party!

Kind of like Obama going to Vegas while they're pulling a dead ambassador out of Benghazi, amirite?

Otherwise Just Fine: Elandriel: Genevieve Marie: That's odd behavior for someone who ostensibly supports MItt Romney.

He's thinking about his own upcoming re-election, I'd guess. NJ is still pretty blue, even with CC in charge, and he needs to lay groundwork to proclaim himself totes reasonable.

Or, maybe he's actually being a governor of a state instead of just a partisan Republican.

He's got his eye on 2016.

And that last french fry on your plate. You gonna finish that?

Say what you want about Christie, but he's always been pretty damn straight forward, if not downright blunt. It's obvious that he cares more about the people in his state than he does about any political bullshiat going on and will not politicize this tragedy for anyone.

Does he look like the mayor from "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs"? Yes, yes he does.

Jeb/Rubio/Jindal are going to play this on infinite loop in attack ads come March 2016.

You can get away with a lot of things in the GOP. You can be completely devoid of any fundamental core principles. You can say rape is a gift from God. You can serve your cancer stricken wife with divorce papers to run off with your mistress. You can even Freudian slip and publicly admit you hate "blah" people. The one, and perhaps only, unforgivable sin is to praise sekret mooslum black Usurper in any way.
