Gotta love a strong republican governer!

No handouts, no entitlement, no bullshit.

He made some great points last night on the NBC evening news when the douchebag Brian Williams interviewed him.

The other great thing about Christie is his honesty when talking about how responsive Obama was regarding state aid for the crisis. When pressed about politics, he said he will praise where praise is deserved and criticize where criticizm is deserved. Why can't we have more politicians like that?

Yup, I liked that. He was VERY supportive of obama in sending help to the citizens of his state.

He seems like a straight shooter. Maybe thats why the domocratic republic of new jersey was open minded enough to elect a republican governer?

I wish more lefties would be open minded to the middle, and more righties would be open minded to the middle, instead of everyone being so far to the extremes.

Even I can't think of a good argument for staying in the path of a storm and expecting others to risk their lives to save you.

I like him, too. His talk about the polls being open on election day cracked me up. Let the guys who are trying to get elected figure it out, I've got bigger things to worry about.

There were many calls for Christie to run for Prez, maybe he's getting himself all lined up for 2016 if Romney can't pull off this election.

Yes they deserve to be taken to task for crying wolf in the past, but people have to take responsibility for their own choices.

Yes. And rescued only if it doesn't put the rescuers at undue risk.



Take it one step further. Should people who choose to live in disaster prone areas be offered government subsidized insurance?

They should tough it out. They will have the best opportunity to loot the place once the water goes away.

Does any of this remind us of New Orleans?

Not a fan, but I gotta admit he 'handled' this right. Went in, said 'that's awful' and promised money.

That's about all he can do, really.

In true disaster zones? No
But I wouldn't call New York & surrounding areas disaster zones. This was a rare occurance versus living in below sea level New Orleans.

I agree that they are retarded and should have moved to higher ground and they wouldnt be my first priority


but..

They also pay taxes which fund public services such as fire, ems, police, coast guard..... so to say they shouldn't be rescued with out paying is a bit far fetched. "Our Government" has put these organizations into effect so when people do get hurt doing stupid stuff there is some one there to help them. If you don't agree with it then maybe you should vote differently.
