    I am proud of President Obama's efforts in this time of need. Times like this remind all Americans of what government is for. http://publicmattersblog.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/president-obama-rescues-new-jersey/

  2. Facts don't Lie

    might not sway anybody's vote in this election and might even be forgotten by next Tues, but I have to admit I LOVED how when the FoxNews bunch almost BEGGED Christie either stop saying good things about Obama or at least start saying good things about Romney he didn't take the bait. In fact he made them practically back down. Some times there are things whee you put aside your differences for the good of ALL parties. I commend these two for doing just that.

    I think America is showing it's true colors! We have not gotten over racism! They have hated the POTUS since day one! Romney has lied over and over. Regardless of Romney being proved a liar...people still will vote for him to get the black man out of office. What a shame!

    Both men are doing the job elected to do. Why is CNN or anyone else making a big deal of it?

    I'm a die hard Democrat, and of course I'll vote for Obama. Could Christie be the next Reagan, and would I vote for him like I did Reagan. Could be.....

It's sad that most of the repubs don't like lying romney but they are only voting for him trying to get President Obama out of office, what a bunch of haters they would perfer to chance their lives and their families lives on this lying loser than stick with someone who really wants to help them. lying romney don't give a rat's butt about the 47%, hell he just as much said so.

    Hey AZ DEM your remark contradicts itself right off the bat. How can people hate Obama because of his race immediately after just electing him the President? Besides during this campaign it has been Obama proven to have told most non truths. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    We need more of this type of cooperation AND we need more photos like this one in our media.

    I wish this were a time of a new realized friendship for these two men. Friendship that will transcend future political bullying. What a great thing if they could become models for cooperative politicking. It is very nice to see them come together.

    Good example of putting people before the party. That is exactly one of the biggest things that is wrong with this country. It's the party before the people the majority of the time. It is nice to see people working together. ARE YOU LISTENING CONGRESS?

    I just wish that the republicans could have been more bi-partisan when it came to digging us out of the Bush recession. Just imagine how far we would be...

    Unfortunately, it's taken a tradegy of epic porportions to get some people to sit up and take notice. Well done, Gov. Christie, and POTUS!

    In the picture above, Christie looks at Obama like he's a pork chop

  22. WoW, really?

    Sure wish Christie would go Dem... Then I would vote for him if he goes 2016. Love that he is working with our POTUS and supporting his efforts instead of climbing aboard the GOP runaway train. Jus sayin

    Please let the election be over and I never have to see Romneys face again.

    Amen, but I'll add this: I never have to see Romneys face again or listen to his lies and look at his nasty teeth. You would think a person who wants as much attention as he does, would clean their mouth first. It just shows the intelligence level of this creep.
