        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US

           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.

REACT * happy * informative * depressing * odd * boring * angry * interesting * inspiring Vote Loading... html#vid=30998035&browseCaro uselUI=hide&autoPlay=true One of Mitt Romney's biggest supporters, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, had nothing but praise for President Barack Obama today, as his state prepares to rebuild from the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. "I have to say, the administration, the president, himself and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been outstanding with us so far," Christie said on Good Morning America. Christie told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Obama called him on Monday night around midnight to ask if there was anything else the federal government could do to help. Christie added that they worked together to move forward with a Major Disaster Declaration for New Jersey. The Major Disaster Declaration provides funding for recovery efforts, including infrastructure projects, temporary housing, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property loss and assistance to individuals and businesses. offered any other assets that we needed to help," Christie said. "I want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this." Appearing on Fox News, Christie said the storm is bigger than the election. "I have a job in New Jersey that is much bigger than presidential politics," Gov. Kaye o 7 hours ago It's nice to see a governor put the interest of his state and its people above politics. This is what America is suppose to be about, not division and hatred. Ty o 7 hours ago This is actually something I really enjoy hearing about. Republicans and Democrats actually working together and pulling together in a time of need and leaving politics out of it. I really wish we all could do this without name calling and taking sides and pointless bickering. I wish the best to all the people who have been turned upside down by this storm. Hopefully this will be cleaned up soon, and become a memory to share with your grandchildren. caleb 2 minutes 29 seconds ago Well for one, I thought it was ridiculus when they decided that the pledge of allegiance in schools was not politically correct. Whether you believe in god or not, these are the principles that our nation was built on. Kind of like the whole christmas tree being called a Holiday tree. I don't believe in war, but I also don't want to wait around until we get another terrorist attack, and no, I do not believe in greed, but if you think that the democratic party isn't greedy then you are truly ignorant about the mindset of a politician. Just because he or she is a democrat does not exclude them from greed and corruption. Susan o 5 hours ago There's a time for politicking and this is surely not it. I appreiate Governor Christie's putting poitics aside and giving credit where it's due. He's got his hands full, I pay for all who have been impacted by this devastating weather event. Dave o 6 hours ago As a left leaning independent there's a lot of issues I don't agree with Christie on, but I've always liked his bluntness and refusal to dance around the issue, and in interviews he seems to be a pretty educated and rational guy. Good to see everyone focusing on helping those who need it instead of turning this into a partisan issue in order to try and further their stance in the election. "This place would be in court for a hostile workplace, because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women." This is what Anita Dunn, one of President Obama's White House staff members said about how women were treated in his administration. In the same piece, former economic adviser Christina Romer is reported as saying, "I felt like a piece of meat." President Obama promised to "protect the jobs and benefits of workers and retirees when corporations file for bankruptcy by telling companies that they cannot issue bonuses for executives during bankruptcy while their workers watch their pensions disappear." President Obam promised he "will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors -- saving them an average of $1,400 a year-- and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all." How about President Obama promise to reduce bills rushed through Congress and for the president to not sign before the public has the opportunity to review them? We were told President Obama "will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days." "No political appointees in an Obama-Biden administration will be permitted to work on regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years. And no political appointee will be able to lobby the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of the administration." It didn't make a year before it was broken numerous times. Dipanjan 16 minutes ago Douglas, u still can't avoid partisanship, even for a day? Even after the governor praised the President, you still have to blame him for the gridlock in Washington. He put the people and their needs above politics, and that tells me a lot about him. Good for you governor, and you've demonstrated what a leader should and can be, a la Rudy Giuliani on 9/11. Historian by trade o 7 hours ago It is refreshing that Gov Christie can put politics aside and give credit for federal and state cooperation in the wake of hurricane Sandy. offered any other assets that we needed to help," Christie said. "I want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this." sonia o 7 hours ago Today I see Chris Christie in a new light. He came out publicly and thanked the president I know that was not easy for him. But if Christie can be man enough to publicly say what he said I can be woman enough to say. Respect is due to Christie for putting politics aside and working for the people of New Jersey. Christie is a Republican who isn't trying to score cheap partisan points off this natural disaster. I can respect a Republican who is willing to bridge the usually nasty partisan gap that afflicts American politics these days. Chris Christie "Republican @ LARGE" was hit hard by Sandy in New Jersey and is doing a good job for the people of his state. In a video today with George Stephanopoulos, he said President Obama had called him and helped him coordinate help with FEMA and put New Jersey on track for Federal financial help. He praised the President's quick response in getting help to his hard-hit State. This is what the people want, no more partisan politics, cooperation between the parties for the good of our country. fishmanpa o 7 hours ago I was very critical before the storm of the President and Mitt Romney for continuing their campaign efforts in light of the impending storm. Both the President and Mr Romney did the right thing, canceled their appearances and supported the people in harms way. Abides o 5 hours ago A republican and democrat working together and giving each other mutual respect. If we could get the people in Washington to do this we would all win. We are much better as a people if we work together as opposed to not....
