    I am from New Hampshire, so I know about these storms. The forecast was for heavy snow all up and down the northeast coastal region... He knew what was coming.

    Got to love these quotes.

    I am not sure about NJ, but in NH, state roads are the responsibility of the state, the local roads are the responsibility of city and town governments... got that?

    Exactly. Maybe that's what they were hoping for. That's the only reason I can think that some are so adament that he should have been there.

    PS. The answer to your question "And what does the NFL and Pennsylvania's football stadium have to do with NJ and Christie?" is simple. The same storm hit 'em both.


    Devils game in newark who ended up with 30+ inches..... Not cancelled. For the 2nd time.....

    I'm still waiting on someone to present the nonexistent proof that this was forecast to be a snowstorm in the Philly, N.J., New York area 48 hours before it hit. Got any ???

    The NFL was heavily criticised by most, including the Dem governor of PA, Rendell who called them wussies. They only got around 6 inches at the stadium.

    Are you saying that Christie was not aware of the strom before he left for Florida?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
