Title and opening sentence updated; I had originally titled it "Christie invites Obama to visit..." but it's not clear whether he "invited" Obama or not...doesn't really matter, but I wanted to avoid confusion...
After Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie basically told Romney to fuck off earlier today, the White House just announced that President Obama will be touring New Jersey with Gov. Chris Christie tomorrow:
"Tomorrow afternoon, the President will travel to New Jersey where he will join Governor Christie in viewing the storm damage, talking with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thanking first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities."
Now, in all fairness, there's two major differences here: First, Obama is the President right now; it's completely appropriate for him to see firsthand the devastation since he has to take it into account when coordinating with FEMA, etc etc. Secondly, he's waiting an extra day before doing so, to give the state a chance to at least catch their collective breaths a bit.
Still, both of those just underline how incredibly inappropriate it was for anyone to try and get Romney in there for a bullshit photo op (not sure whether it was Romney who asked Christie or just a FOX idiot pushing for it).
Either way, that's gonna leave a mark.
