Gov. Christie Talks Politics and Sandy During Sea Bright Visit

Governor welcomed Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long's endorsement and offered his own thoughts

Who cares about crossing party lines when rebuilding in the wake of a disaster like Hurricane Sandy?

That's the question Gov. Chris Christie posed yesterday when he accepted the ringing endorsement for his reelection from Democratic Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long.

Long, whose town has been visited quite a bit by the governor since Sandy struck and nearly leveled it, called the governor a hero.

Democratic leadership called her an opportunist capitalizing on the disaster. Christie called out people putting politics above rebuilding the Jersey Shore with a united front.

Hear what the governor had to say in the brief video clip above.

I disagree with Gov. Christie on almost everything, however I have to agee with him that politics should not have anything to do with disaster recovery after super storm Sandy. Now if he had awarded the cleanup contracts on land and on water to New Jersey companies ___instead of all out-of-state companies I migh have actually believed for one minute that he cares about NJ. I find that giving a several hundred million dollar cleanup contract to a company from Florida is OUTRAGEOUS, when you consider that Every Republican Congressman in FL voted against FEMA assistance for our state, yet Chrisite allows NJ money to go to FL..

If he really cared, maybe stay in NJ instead of flying across the country for political fundraisers.

Gov. Christie's weight is his own business and that of his wife and kids. If he dies at a young age he saves us taxpayers a fortune on his governent pension and social security payments. It's is his life and his right alone to decide on how or what he wants to do. We are all going to die regardless of what we weigh or eat.
