Chris Christie’s Job Approval
Rockets To Record 77% In
Wake Of Hurricane Sandy

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/26/2012 2:05:10 PM

New Jersey’s outspoken Republican Gov. Chris Christie frustrated members of his party when he praised President Barack Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy just days before the 2012 presidential election. Christie’s bipartisan approach to storm relief has, however, endeared him to the Garden State’s Democrats. A new poll shows Christie’s job approval rating has rocketed to a personal record of 77 percent with a majority of New Jersey Democrats giving Christie positive marks. A Fairleigh Dickenson University poll of 241 registered voters in New Jersey, taken from November 13 – 18, showed

Comments:
Warning of picture of 0bama & Christie in an "intimate embrace." For those who need a jolt of Christie news, take a deep breath and realize that he is getting a 77% approval rating in this poll by dRATS.

In his best Ralph Kramden impression for Saturday Night Live, Christie should have his bud Ed Norton remind US that he once said: "Well, if I was asked to describe your build, I´d say you have, uh, very well developed muscles, uh, a good bone structure, very good bone structure, fine frame... and the whole thing is covered with fat." You´d never make it in Bloomberg´s New York City.

Chances (if any) of the Republican nomination for the WH in ´16 have vaporized. He probably will run for the Democrat nomination. Stranger things have happened.

A poll of 241 people is not much of a poll in a well populated state like Jersey. Christie was probably surprised and grasping from help and of course, flapears would be there right before the election to get favorable comments. Did not last long and he is as big a dunce as ever - the next few endless years will pass - tooooo slow.

He played that almost as well as Gearge H. W. bush played Desert Storm. Huge approval ratings. Then ... Very popular in a Dem state and worth watching if the GOP decides to just merge with the Demcoratic Party.

The undeserved praise he gave to obama did absolutely nothing for the suffering of his constituents, but helped re-elect a man whose policies will continue to bring suffereing to tens of millions until his socialist agenda is stopped and reversed.

As far as I´m concerned he may as well become a democrat, like specter. He has no future in politics beyond New Jersey.

Of course the Democrats love him, he solidified
the re-election of a Democratic President. What
counts is if he happens to run for president, because Republicans are no longer happy with him. (and forget the idiotic weight comments ).
They have nothing to do with anything.

Christy has to get re-elected at home first, and he needed federal money to help with hurricane Sandy, so welcome-Obama. Christy is what is called ´pragmatic´ which is something Republicans need to learn. But Republicans never learn! They will pick another candidate like the last two next time. Because ´naughty Christy´ had his picture taken with Obama. Could it be that Republicans are just d____b?

The problem wasn´t that he met with Obama and reviewed the disaster area together. The problem is that Christie was slobbering all over Obama and kissing his feet practically. Of course we expect Governors to work with Presidents when there is a major disaster. Nobody is complaining about that. What people are angry about is Christie giving massive praise to Obama during the last few weeks of the election when he is supposed to be supporting Romney. He claimed that he still supported Romney. If that was so, then why (besides his fawning all over Obama) did he make a personal phone call to Obama to congratulate him on his re-election but only sent Romney an email????? Goon...hypocrite.

My take is that Christie had to kiss butt to get federal dollars. However, that will not even make a dent in the costs, especially with all the fraud, kick-backs, graft and theft. New Jersians are sure gonna wake up when they get there $7,000 to $10,000 increase in taxes next year. But then again, the state is mostly Ds, so they love higher taxes. What is the state´s economy right now? Look for the economy to take and tourism next summer to be anemic.

Lawmakers dug in Sunday for a proxy war over the new health care law, now that President Obama has selected a well-known manager to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and lead his signature program into a new era. Mr. Obama says his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is a “proven manager” who will lead HHS with distinction and build on whatever momentum the White House gained by signing up 7.5 million Americans in private health coverage from October to March. But Sen. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican and member of the Senate Finance Committee that will vet

A woman has been arrested on six counts of murder after authorities found the bodies of seven infants packed into separate cardboard boxes at a home in Utah, police said. Police arrested Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, on Saturday following a gruesome discovery at a residence formerly occupied by the woman who they say moved out in 2011. Officers responding to a phone call from a family member who is currently living at the Pleasant Grove residence arrived at the home to find the first baby which "appeared to be a full term," according to a police statement.

NASA will launch SpaceX’s Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station on Monday as planned despite a failure in a backup electronics box for the station’s robotic arm. NASA mission managers said Saturday that the crew on board the ISS is in no danger, but a problem in a backup computer component could have forced a postponement, NBC reports. NASA announced Sunday, however, it would proceed with the launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. late Monday afternoon. The SpaceX Dragon capsule, which is slated to carry 4,600 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station, is scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9

Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration´s own predictions that the new health care law´s online sign-up system would be ready by Oct. 1 were "just flat out wrong." Sebelius told NBC´s "Meet the Press" in an interview airing Sunday the health care website´s launch was "terribly flawed and terribly difficult." She says that eight-week period was her low point of her tenure. Sebelius last week announced her resignation. She says she wanted to give President Barack Obama enough time to bring in a new health chief. Sebelius´ resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for

Vatican City - Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter´s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for "selfies" with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd. In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives. "Has my life fallen asleep?" Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus´ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

In a wide-ranging interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, the Kentucky Republican said the GOP needs to “evolve, change and grow” if it wants to win again, and that he wants to be a part of that. He also deflected his positive polling with modesty. “I guess it’s better than not being noticed,” Mr. Paul said. On immigration, he said former Florida Gov.

An automated pot-selling machine was unveiled at an event held at an Avon, Colo., restaurant Saturday, promising a potential new era of selling marijuana and pot-infused snacks from vending machines directly to customers. Its creators say the machine, called the ZaZZZ, uses biometrics to verify a customer´s age. The machine is climate-controlled to keep its product fresh. You may be picturing a vending machine on a sidewalk, ready to dispense pot brownies to anyone with correct change. That´s not quite what backers of the machine have in mind. For now, at least, the ZaZZZ is aimed for use only by medical marijuana patients.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.
