President Barack Obama participates in a conference call to discuss the restoration of power for those who lost electricity during Hurricane Sandy, in the Situation Room of the White House.

USA Today – Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — the newest political odd couple — teamed up Wednesday to tour the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey shore.

    Couldn’t Chris Christie have avoided this? I mean he did give the keynote speech for Romney at the convention, so what the hell is this all about? Why give Obama photo ops with a Republican Governor showing how well he can ‘play ball’? Couldn’t the tour be delayed another week because its not like all Obama has to do is gaze at the destruction and poof! the houses are rebuilt. If the FEMA money did not come, it would be a good thing for Romney in Jersey. Why does Christie care so much about a State that is going Blue anyway? Did he let his emotions get the better of him? Maybe he should have toured with Bruce Springsteen instead. The boss may be a lowlife but at least HE was able to stick to his political guns and refuse to play for Christie’s inauguration party. Now it seems like Christie is playing for Obama’s re-elections party.
