    Why aren't you in the bloomberg thread? oh that's right, you prefer to whine over nothing because it's a "R" you can whine about. Please, it's pathetic.
    Did you miss my comment about Bloomberg? Whatever.

    Partisan hack!?!?!?! Well I never in all my born days!!!!! For your information three of my favorite political figures of all time happened to be Republican. So there.

    Don't give a crap. Doesn't change the fact you are embarrassing yourself in this idiotic thread about a snowstorm.

    Up until a state of emergency is declared, yeah. Somehow I imagine you viewed Bush's role in New Orleans after Katrina differently...

    yeah - don't let the facts get in the way of your vitriol. And I am very pleased with my contribution to this thread. Perhaps you yourself feel a bit queasy about defending someone who does not have the sense to return home in a crisis - if only to be with his people. I guess we look at leadership a bit differently.

    Seems we still have people waiting to exit the NE corridor due to the snow, now tell me, how would you have Christie returning with closed airports?

    Christie could be driven to the closest point to NJ by car where possible. Then he could be helicoptered in over the snow and airports. That is the advantage of such a machine that they do not need an airport on which to land.

    And all of that cost just so you could feel confident that he is a leader? When "Go To Meeting" is available? Sounds like a waste to me.

    I think much of that criticism of Obama was from the left because he didn't screw BP hard enough. Other than using his authority to side-step Jones act to speed the clean-up effort, I'm not sure there's anything further he could/should have done.

    We have two very different perspectives on leadership and duty to the people who elected you.
