    This.

    While people may complain that Christie is not here, I wonder how many people are complaining that Obama isn't in the White House working.

    Well be happy that both Christie and Obama combined so far are no where near the vacation time that Bush had clocked up at this time of his presidency... doubt that record will ever be broken.

    I didn't think it was his place to plug the damn hole. I did think he was slow to respond to get help with keeping the oil away from shore and cleaning it out of the gulf. It didn't have anything to do with whether he was at the exact location or not. He also did more damage with the moratorium than the spill did.
    So if Christie was in NJ what difference would it make if he's not going to be shoveling snow? Can't he give orders from Florida?
    Sorry, I'm originally from Ohio, and a blizzard somehow doesn't seem like the same thing as a huge oil spill.

    I don't remember George and Laura running all over the globe on lavish vacations and throwing lavish parties in the WH.
    So what if they spent a lot of time at the ranch? He was able to work from there and they were cheap vacations. Foreign leaders went to the ranch. It seems he used the ranch as a second WH and not as a vacation spot.
    I doubt any president will break Obama's record of lavish vacations, parties, and date nights and it's only been 2 yrs.

    Isn't snow removal the job of state and local governments? Do you think OUR president should usurp their power?

    LOL give me a break.. what a cop out. The home and work place of the US President is the White House, and the official presidential retreat is Camp David. Bush was on his Texas ranch long from the centre of power for over 1/3 of is total president days.

    As for holding lavish parties ... that is what US Presidents do. You do know it is one of the primary responsibilities of the US President to entrain foreign dignitaries? And just because you now see and hear more about these parties because there is a likeable and young President, does not mean they did not happen under Bush 2... no one cared enough because he was and is a joke of the ages.

    And lavish vacations? Which? Give me a break.. any vacation a US president is lavish compared to you and me. Or are you saying that the US president is not allowed to have a vacation now? Funny coming after 8 years where the sitting REPUBLICAN President was almost more on vacation than working in Washington.

    And because you are President of the US, then all of a sudden romance is out of the window with your wife? Are they not allowed to have sex with each other and do the whole romance thing? Are US presidents required to not have sex with their wife's and only with hookers and mistresses? I find it very refreshing that after Reagan, Bush 1 (somewhat), Clinton (for sure) and Bush 2 (for sure) that love and romance are back in the White House. Was getting to be a very cold place... unless that is the norm of a US household.. sleeping apart, not showing much affection what so ever .. if you are lucky. Then again Bush 2 was so dumb he almost killed himself with a pretzel, so guess romance was alien to him. Wonder if the marriage was arranged like everything else in his life.. school, jobs, so called military service.. probably was.

    I agree. His policies disqualify his policies, and this just adds a level of personal cowardliness to the equation.

    One wonders if this would be a headline had the Gov. a -D at the end of his name...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
