New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was on XM radio last night being interviewed by Chris “Mad Dog” Russo about the Jersey Shore and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
To no one’s surprise, Christie spent time praising President Obama’s leadership to New Jersey, even going so far as calling the President’s actions “amazing.”
Russo followed up by asking Christie if Mitt Romney had called, and Christie answered, “Governor Romney last called me on Sunday as Sandy was approaching.”
Anyone else feel that chill? Christie has his new bromance, and poor Mittens has been thrown to the curb. Christie even went on to throw alcohol onto the wound on his Twitter feed:
What’s funny is the same Conservatives that chastise President Obama for his unwillingness to work across the aisle are personally attacking Christie for daring to do the same during a crisis. Rush Limbaugh, with no sense of irony, attacked the Governor’s weight, saying Christie is “fat and a fool.” He went on to refer to Christie as Obama’s “Greek column.”
Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch went further, warning Christie that he needed to reaffirm his support for Romney “or take blame for the next four dire years.”
Thanks Bloomberg right decision.@now Christie, while thanking O, mustre- declare for Romney, or take blame for next four dire years.
