    For those who might take your sentiments seriously, Christie's gesture does nothing less than make him appear less oppressive to some less-than-staunch Conservative, Indi & Liberal voters. It is ,strateegery wise, a smart move to show his ability to get along with Democrats.
    I am kidding, its a joke at the expense of those far right conservatives who go on these witch hunts for "RINOs." Reminds me of the "Scarlet Letter."

    Yeah, it's a shame. In my opinion he, like all the other folks in high-level politics are dirtballs. And I don't care what label you attach to them.

    Like the LA Gov who resisted asking for Federal Aid and then blamed Bush for not violating the posse Comitatus Act.

    Interesting that the Democrat Pres was lauded for cooperative efforts by the Republican Gov but the Republican pres was condemned by the Dem Gov.

    Almost makes you think that the Dems play politics while the Reps work in the real world...
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    My god, can't you just take this not only as a positive interaction but also as a separate event from others? Are you the type that if a coin flips heads 5 times in a row, then it "must" act a certain way on the next flip? People, places, and events all vary greatly, and to label anything with such certainty is just plain ignorant. Stop being a hack and take the situation for what it's worth. There are PLENTY of sleazy politicians and a select few honorable ones on either side. To label an entire group instead of the individual actions taken is dishonest at best.

    Can't you admit that he's right?

    You applaud Christie, yet won't be condemn the bull**** political attacks that Bush was subjected to after Hurricane Katrina.

    I'm sorry, do you know me and every personal stance I hold? Better still, can you show me where I condemned bull**** political attacks on Bush after Katrina? Here's the scoop...I disagreed with many of Bush's actions as President, the same as I disagree with many of Obama's actions as President. I however took each event as it came, not basing my opinion on rhetoric or party line opinion. My point is every event does NOT play out the same and for you to say you know my stance on a topic based on party line assumptions is ridiculous.

    Hows about you tell us, then.

    I believe that I can safely say that I can't show you that.

    I told you about the stance that I hold about this, because it's pertinent to the topic at hand. It's a different situation than Katrina was. I think there were things that were handled appropriately and others that weren't, but I also believe it was a problem on a much grander scale, so as such more problems could be expected.

    I believe that I can safely say that I can't show you that.
    Then I ask that you reply to the topic at hand instead of making assumptions. I don't mean to be rude, as I don't believe that accomplishes anything, but I do ask the same respect from you. Do you believe that Obama handled the situation well? Do you think that it should be seen as positive or negative that Christie and Obama are working well with each other across party lines in this situation? This is what I care about at this time, in this post.

    P.S. - Whether this situation was handled well/poorly for political reasons is not really the question at hand. I view the whole interaction as a positive and would like to see this kind of teamwork across the political spectrum (even with inevitable hidden agendas)

    Well, folks in North Dakota and Minnesota (Pawlenty among them) complained when Obama didn't show up to see the flooded areas of Minot, even though he was invited by our Governor. Politics factors in this sort of thing all the time. In reality, if they could get good attention and some good ol' fashioned federal government aid money, it's what we want.
