The Republican civil wars just get better and better. After the house's inexcusable refusal to vote on relief for Sandy victims, this is what Gov. Christie's Twitter feed looks like:

Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
I will be holding a press conference in Trenton at 2pm today regarding #SandyBill.
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
.@NYGovCuomo and I believe this continued inaction and indifference by the House of Representatives is inexcusable. #SandyBill
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
The fact that days continue to go by while people suffer, families are out of their homes...
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
...and men and women remain jobless and struggling during these harsh winter months is a dereliction of duty. #SandyBill
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
When American citizens are in need we come to their aid. That tradition was abandoned in the House last night. #SandyBill
Well Governor, as my father used to say,  "You won't find a rose in a briar patch". The current crop of crazy republicans are one hell of a briar patch and there isn't a rose to be found. Perhaps you should rethink your allegiances.  

11:07 AM PT: Sorry I forgot the link for the press conference. (hope it works).

11:43 AM PT: After listening to most of the news conference, he basically emphasized that political infighting is the driving force in DC these days and the reason that nothing gets done. He also pretty much hung Boehner out to dry. Said that he was promised a vote after the fiscal cliff was resolved. Cantor had been leading the charge on this bill so it sounds like maybe it was a big ole fuck you to Cantor from Boehner. He said he's called Boehner 4 times and he won't take his calls. Wow, I can't wait for the next installment of this.

11:51 AM PT: Thanks to betson08 for this link: The press conference in case you missed it.

And... he's not finished LOL!

10s of thousands of New Jerseyans entered 2013 unsure of their future bc of Sandy.

66 days and the wait continues. There is only one group to blame for this delay...
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
Natural disasters happen in red states & blue states. We respond to these disasters not as Republicans or Democrats we respond as Americans
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
What I watched last night was disappointing and disgusting to watch
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
We have been waiting six times longer than the victims of Katrina & there's no end in site.
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
NJ and NY are tired of being treated like second class citizens. We deserve better and America deserves better.
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
66 days and counting. Shame on you. Shame on Congress. @NYGovCuomo and I will not stop fighting together to get this done. #SandyBill
Governor Christie ‏@GovChristie
.@NYGovCuomo and I are not wallflowers and we are not shrinking violets. We are going to work together to make this happen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
