    Class displayed on both sides (Governor Christie/President Obama).

    It's about coming together helping people.

    No one wants to see another GOP Bush/Brownie failure.

    Remember both Governor Christie and president Obama are an Americans and a fellow human being. Their fellow citizens are in despair and they happen to be the responsible leaders there is nothing wrong with the two coming together and help the people in need unless you are a republican in congress

    Take note Willard. Two men actually doing their job while you're out campaigning trying to get photo ops of looking compassionate. You look phonier than the new $100 bills.

    This what needs to be done, let not pay game, lets get the job done. There are no candidates here, there are two men doing their jobs and this is what the people are looking for. Right now the people in NJ are worried about how they are going to get their lives back together the race for the white house is still there but what they need the most is to see that there leader are doing the job that they get paid to do.

  9. Bipartisanship. Obama 2012! and Christie 2016?

    Bipartisanship. Thank you President Obama and thank you Governor Christie. Both leading by example. We need people like you both in Washington. People who genuinely focus on others. Note to former Governor Romney, this is how you genuinely operate. True Bipartisanship, not rhetoric or things done only to score political points. Obama for President in 2012 and Christie should have a good chance for President in 2016.

    Mitt the twit can't go to Jersey. He wasn't invited. The REAL President took care of Americans there.

    What? No signs of MItt holding a donation rally? Oh, that's right: New Jersey is not a swing state Mitt needs.

  15. Romney is NOT My Hero

    I know that the saying is "the fat lady has sung", but in this case we'll change it to "fat man". Sandy swirled around Christie and finally opened his eyes, and now he's singing the praises of President Obama. About Time!!! I'm still trying to figure out exactly what it'll take to open the eyes of horse-Mitt and Lying Ryan – maybe them losing horribly (because they will on Nov 6th).

    OBAMA 2012!!!

    Its great to see people work together isn't it !

    My hats off to President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie .

    Ann Coulter , if Romney was the candidate and not Christie, he would lose. .....
    For once I agree with Ann the man .

    Too bad it takes a natural disaster to get both sides to work together.

    We would like to thank all Mitt Romney supporters for their concern for the citizens of New Jersey. Thank you Governor Christie for putting the lives of Americans first and politics last.

    This picture shows that in the face of disaster, God comes out in anyone that has true compassion for human beings.

    Chris Cristy praised Obama, while mitt the twitt said to do away FEMA. Paul Ryan wants to eliminate FEMA altogether. Pathetic idiots. Obama12. Period.
