Congress approved more than $60 billion in Sandy relief funds, which is why six months after the superstorm trounced New Jersey, with $1.8 billion in federal grants on storm rebuilding and recovery it looks like the boardwalk in Atlantic City will finally be rebuilt.
The problem is that no amount of money is likely to remedy the current state of national affairs after socialist superstorm Barack, with the help of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, was given a second chance to continue laying waste to everything in his path for another term.
It wasn’t enough that three days prior to the 2012 election New Jersey Governor Chris Christie sabotaged the presidential race. Now six months later the Rutgers-educated RINO is showing up on MSNBC singing Obama’s praises.
Corpulent Christie uttered laudatory ‘I ♥ Obama’ kudos on the “Morning Joe” show, where he said
“The president has kept every promise he’s made. I think he’s done a good job. He kept his word.”
What Christie forgot to include in his commendation was that the president’s promise-keeping, good-job skills apply exclusively to providing hurricane relief funds and not much else.
Listening to Chris Christie on MSNBC effusively gush over Barack Obama sounded like a family member who defends a drunken uncle to his aunt with the black eye because Uncle Harry slips him a few bucks here and there. After all, “Uncle Harry has always been really nice to me.”
Nonetheless, for those who suffered through Hurricane Sandy, it was bad enough to have to undergo being without electricity for ten days and having to dispose of $500 worth of rotten food. But, three days before the election, to then have to endure watching the spectacle of Chris Christie hugging and nodding “Yes,” to everything Obama said made what was already agonizing absolutely excruciating.
Didn’t Chris Christie realize that his little “Help Me” spectacle helped Obama more?
The president showing up in storm-torn New Jersey diverted the attention of undecided voters from Romney and directed them toward himself and, while yawning and checking his watch, disingenuously clutched weeping storm victims to his breast.
Chris Christie claims that the smoochfest took place because he had “a job to do.” Oh, Christie did a job all right. The governor said, “You wake up and 7 million of your 8.8 million citizens are out of power, you’re not thinking about presidential politics.”
