    Thank you. There are some things that just go beyond whether you like or don't like someone. I have no problem with Christie being in Florida. I'm in an area that was especially hard hit with snow. We're fine and managing. I generally like how NJ handles snow removal and as this is his first experience as governor with this, I see no difference than I have in the past. To me, what that means, is that he's managed it fine.

    Yeah, what ever will we do? Oh noez! It's the dreaded evil snow and Christie is out of the state!

    But really... the bastard should have been at my house at 8 am and shovel my driveway. Guy never showed and was on vacation at Disney. What a jerk huh?

    Congratulations for passing over everything else I said and pretending you're actually addressing a position of mine. Now to be more specific for you, that position would be that there is something specifically for him to do, which I already quite clearly addressed.

    He was at MY house shoveling. Guess he wants my vote more than yours.

    Wait. Aren't you the one whining about how the lack of MSM action in this thread, is justified because it's "not news", yet, you clearly have a serious position about Christie being on vacation during a snow storm.

    Don't be surprised when no one takes you seriously any more. I know I don't.

    Bet you promised him a tip too. Now I'll have to get donuts next year to entice him back. Damn.

    If it weren't for that damn global warming, you wouldn't even need a snow shovel.

    How are those related? And I don't have a serious issue, in fact I don't really care what he does. I'm just offering an opinion on the situation, but that doesn't mean I think if the man doesn't act in the way my opinion says he should that its a serious problem.

    Again going back to my previous posts which you clearly haven't read, if I say something like "even though I know there's not much he can do if he was there" that probably means him being there isn't a huge deal for me.
