Gov. Christie Praises President Obama's Leadership on Hurricane Sandy Relief

Credit Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) for praising President Obama's leadership in responding to the Hurricane Sandy disaster in his state (at around the 2:30 mark in this vid). Maybe this will inoculate the President somewhat from Rethuglican attempts to inflate this into "Obama's Katrina" or a dastardly plot? (Naaah!*)

Later, on MSNBC, Christie said:

"The president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. I've been on the phone with him, like I said, yesterday, personally, three times. He gave me his number at the White House, told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it. It's been very good working with the president, and he and his administration have been coordinating with us great. It's been wonderful."

We've often ripped Christie in the past (and likely will in the future), but on this occasion he deserves big props for his honesty.

BONUS: When interviewed on the hyper-partisan "Fux and Fiends", Christie shot down the idea that a phony photo opportunity with Willard "I'll Say Anything" Romney was likely, after being prompted by resident jackass Steve "The Douche" Doocy.
