Working together – Obama and Christie work to clean up NJ after Hurricane Sandy
But in the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, the New Jersey Governor and President Obama are putting aside differences of ideology and working together to put government to work for the people. Rescuing the stranded, cleaning up the mess, and starting to rebuild.
That’s the way it’s supposed to be.
“It’s really important to have the President of the United States acknowledge all the suffering that’s going on here in New Jersey and I appreciate it very much. We’re going to work together to make sure we get ourselves through this crisis and get everything back to normal,” Christie said.
(Contrast this with GOP House Leader Eric Cantor’s holding last year’s Hurricane Irene disaster funding hostage as a political ploy for more spending cuts, or Mitt Romney’s insistence that the Federal Government can’t do anything write, so he’d shut down FEMA and turn disaster relief over to the states.)
