(CNN) - A staunch Republican, and a top surrogate for Mitt Romney, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie crossed the aisle this week and praised President Barack Obama for his support and handling of the federal response
"This is much more important than any election, Piers. This is the livelihood of the people in my state," Christie said Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise. And when the president does things that deserve scorn, I'll give him scorn."
