And the Hurricane didn't make New Jersey residents homeless either ...

When will these Politicians ever learn -- that there is such a thing as "people with cameras" ...

Chris Christie:  I Never Hugged Obama

The New Jersey governor shrugs off bromance, calls it a "handshake"

by Courtney Subramanian, -- Oct. 27, 2013

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says his greeting of President Barack Obama when the president arrived in Atlantic City to tour the devastation from Hurricane Sandy was not, as many have said, a “hug.”

“It was a handshake like you would shake hands with anyone,” he said. “It was a perfectly natural, casual, normal type of greeting between two people. And you know, it’s become legend.”

Would-be repeat Governor (until 2016) Chris Christie, tells the world and NJ residents:

“It was a handshake [...]  a casual, normal type of greeting between two people."

And you really didn't downsize government either Governor -- at the expense of NJ Teachers and NJ Police and NJ Fire-Fighters and NJ Toll-workers!

Those 'pink slips' were "only furlough handshakes" ... all normal and stuff. Right.

Only in Jersey, would such a bigger-than-life story-teller, stay as popular as he is.  Just because ... "he's so authentic."

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.
