New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie praised President Barack Obama today, as his state begins 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,” Christie said on Good Morning America. “We have a great partnership with them.”
Christie told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that President 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. “He worked on that last night with me…offered any other assets that we needed to help,” Christie said. “I want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this...President Obama has been Outstanding!”
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. Chris Christie said on the show Fox & Friends. “I couldn’t care less about that.”
Meanwhile, 50's retro Romney, in a political photo op while campaigning in Ohio, collected canned goods in a bus claiming he was going to deliver them to storm victims.
The Red Cross has asked ALL Americans to send their monetary donations to the Red Cross and not to send canned goods or products which are difficult to receive or distribute during these type of emergencies. The question is, why didn't the billionaire, in private, just sent a $10M check?
