Again, Chris Christie is Really a Democrat
#1
Christie pisses me off. Instead of attacking the republicans, he should go after the democrats who added so much unncessary spending to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund Bill. If the democrats really cared about the victims of Hurricane Sandy then they would have just kept funding for that on the bill. They knew right from the bat that they were going to add other pork to the bill and when the republicans voted no on it because of the other unncessary spending attached to it, it would make republicans look bad. Christie should call out the democrats for their cheap trick, not attack his own party for being too smart to spend more money.

Quote:Angry Christie slams Boehner for abandoning Sandy victims

TRENTON – Citing “selfishness” and “duplicity,” an angry and frustrated Gov. Christie blamed a fellow Republican, House Speaker John Boehner, for withholding $60 billion in aid for Sandy victims.

“Last night politics was placed before our oath to serve our citizens,” Christie said at news conference carried live on CNN. “For me it was disappointing and disgusting to watch.”

Minutes after Christie wrapped up his remarks, which dominated cable news and trended on Twitter, House Republicans said votes on Sandy aid would be held by Jan. 15. Two votes may be held, with the first coming this Friday for $9 billion in flood relief.

Hey look, another "big government" Rhino. He probably will be the Republican nominee in 4 years. What happened to being thankful that the rest of the country is giving you 60 billion dollars to clean up after the storm? People who live on the East and Gulf Coast know that major storms are going to happen, but now it's just assumed that we will all pay for it when it does.

Don't get me wrong, I believe collective risk sharing can be a good thing, but getting all petulant because you don't get everything you ask for right away doesn't sit well with me.

Not that I disagree but as "East coast storms" go, Sandy was a once in a millennium event. It was the largest Atlantic storm ever recorded with the lowest pressures ever seen. Its not like building on the flood plains of the Mississippi knowing it will flood every other year, or right on top of the San Andreas fault and daring one of the 10,000 California earthquakes each year not to be a 9 on the Richter scale.
Last year when Tropical Storm Irene hit, my house at the Jersey Shore was just fine but my place in Schuylkill County, PA had damage.

I think what he's saying is that people who are several thousands of miles away shouldn't be forced to pay for the costs of hurricane damage in our surrounding area unless they do it voluntarily.

Yes, Thanks. I was also trying to comment the entitlement mentality Christie exposed in his childish public attack on Boehner.

It's always toxic for any politician no matter what their life story is, during a disaster (or after), to not call for disaster relief and tell his voters "fuck it... you built/bought/rented in an area that had risk--deal."

When your job that you got was won through a very slim margin at the voting machines, it's even more fraught, considering that a large swath of NJ's coastline was affected.

Christie is just making sure that he gets re-elected and builds a legacy like former Gov. Florio. Lots of Jersey people idolize Florio in much the same manner that old heads in Philly worship the god that was Frank Rizzo.

I disagree here. I was born & raised on the Jersey Shore, and (at least one of) my parents have been going there since the 50 & 60s. I remember driving around with my dad in the 80s in West Ocean City, and him talking about how all those houses didn't used to be there, because it used to be beach.

Even when I go there now, the beach is a LOT closer to the boardwalk than it used to be, and they've moved parts of the boardwalk back. When I was a kid you could climb inside the Jetty's and only the ends used to be near the water--not anymore, the water is too close even at low tide.

The Jersey Shore as a whole is barely above sea level, and parts of it flood often. Those sand dunes are man-made now, and it's become a crime to touch them.

There is a reason why you see so many homes in Jersey on pilings...and notice it's mostly the houses built in the 60's and 70's (and early part of the 80s) that had that foresight. Been a while since I drove around, I do wonder how many of those piling houses still exist.

Manhattan is second only to New Orleans for being close to sea level.

So yes, it's tragic what happened--but they get no excuse, you live on the water you will get water in your house.

Christie was never a conservative.

Not to be cruel to the people needing the help but this may be the only thing Boehner's done in a long time I liked. F Christie and his photo op bullshit to give Obama a much needed bump in the campaign. Payback you slob, payback...
