President Obama stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, on Wednesday afternoon, providing reassurance after Hurricane Sandy — and a politically powerful picture of bipartisanship.Obviously politics isn't the most important thing here, but this was a lovefest that only Mitt Romney could hate.
After touring through a hard-hit community on a barrier island in the state, the two men praised each other and expressed satisfaction with the cooperation of their governments.
“He has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit,” Mr. Christie said, with Mr. Obama standing just behind him. “It’s been a great working relationship.” [...]
Mr. Obama was equally effusive, saying that Mr. Christie, “throughout this process, has been responsive.”
Please give the president a boost by donating to help him close strong in the final days of this campaign.
