Governor Christie, why has thou forsaken us and gone with the dark one?

President Barack Obama finished his tour of storm damage in New Jersey alongside Gov. Chris Christie Wednesday by expressing his sympathy with the victims — and detailing the extent of the response efforts underway.

“We are here for you and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure you get all the help you need until you rebuild,” the president said after visiting a largely destroyed marina in Brigantine, N.J.


“I don’t want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight,” Obama said. “But what I can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done.”


Christie thanked the president for the “great working relationship” he’d enjoyed with Obama in recent days both in the preparation for the storm and its aftermath, saying Obama “has sprung into action immediately” to help the state meet its needs.


“There’s got to be sorrow,” Christie said. “But we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience that I know that all New Jerseyans have.”

 

FOX NEWS and Governor Christ Christie

 

“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy must have forgotten Christie’s self-regarding keynote speech at Romney’s convention, which had more “I” than “he” in it. Doocy asked Christie if there was “any possibility that Governor Romney may go to New Jersey to tour some of the damage with you?” The governor replied dismissively: “I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” adding: “If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me.”
