Just as Hurricane Sandy makes landfall and devastates large portions of New Jersey, Republican Governor Chris Christie praises Obama's leadership (from the NY Times Liveblog):
‘Mr. Christie said Mr. Obama had called to make sure he had everything needed from the federal government and left a number to call him directly at the White House should any unmet needs arise.
“I appreciate that call from the president,” Mr. Christie said. “It was very proactive. I appreciate that kind of leadership.”
I don't have anything much else to say, except that to the Americans affected by this hurricane, we all stand with you and are rooting for you. Being on the edge of the affected area, I can't discuss this much. Please visit some of the critical diaries on emergency-preparedness here at Dailykos.
