    It doesn't look good for the governor to be out of the state when an official state of of emergency is declared, and I think people have a right to expect their elected officials to be present during any kind of crisis even if arguably there isn't much that person could do if they were there.

    Did Governor Christie get stuck in the spinning tea cups on the Mad Hatters ride and that is preventing his return? I have to guess that somehow, someway then can get the Governor of the state back in a decent amount of time .... if he wanted to forgo another ride on Space Mountain.

    Not really. As long as someone was home to mind the shop, who really cares? It's winter, snow and blizzards happen...

    Now, if a Hurricane had been baring down on the state, and he still left... that's different.

    I heard you were using Sisko as an avatar and i couldn't believe it, so I came back to see
    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.

    During blizzards things pretty much come to a halt. Not much anyone can do if they aren't involved in snow removal. I guess you'd just feel better better if Christie was snowed in too.

    I guess I have a different perspective on leadership than you.

    Stupid Question:

    Governors have Phones right? So if the Gov say calls the ACTING Gov to make that declaration, how is that different then the Gov actually BEING there? Just to make you feel better? It's winter, it's a blizzard, it happens. The real outrage is the Dem lawmaker "not letting a crisis" go to waste and trying to score political points out of what really, is not a big deal.

    From my experience in the Army I expect leadership, and my subordinates expect it from me, to be present and suffer through whatever they are going through even if I cannot change anything about the situation. Why, because Im in charge thats why. But like I said thats just my perspective, and for me to respect some in a position of leadership or authority they cannot be aloof and distant to whats going on.
