    N.J. lawmaker questions absence of Christie, lt. gov. during blizzard

    It looks like we have another George W. Bush in the making... Christie is a conservative hero?

    Christie in on vacation with his family at Disney World in Florida, while Guadagno is with her family in Mexico, Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak said. Sunday, hours after taking the oath to become acting governor, Sweeney declared a state of emergency.

    Christie is a bad joke and a toady for extremists like Grover Norquist.

    I don't mind Christie or his policies, generally, but I do think he should be back in New Jersey during a state of emergency for the state. It doesn't look good for him, but it hardly disqualifies his policies.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Good grief. What's he supposed to do, come back and shovel snow? I think he can give orders from Florida.

    I agree that Christie should have arranged for a couple a parachutes so that he could sky dive back into the governor’s residence where he would be trapped there instead of in Florida. I guess he could have gotten closer by plane and then hiked into NJ on some industrial snow shoes??

    People dying in several states but I hear no calls for Berry to rick his life to get back to the White House.

    two questions
    1- when did Governor Christie leave the state?
    2- when was the big storm first forecast for New Jersey?

    Several sources indicate that the Governor was warned about the incoming blizzard and the absence of his Lt. Governor but departed anyway.

    Now while I completely agree, was it not you that ridiculed Obama for not being at the site of the oil spill enough, and were saying stuff like "plug the damn hole already"...?

    Maybe he should have looked at the weather before leaving and saw that if a major storm was coming up that way, it might be a better idea for him to stay in the New Jersey. But honestly, this just isn't that big of a deal.

    I have to agree with pbrauer... that Christie would leave a Democrat in charge during a state of emergency marks a serious lack of judgment.

    And where is your fearless leader while a blizzard pounds the north east? Must all politicians camp in their office waiting for an emergency? What exactly is your point?
