Christie: Obama ‘Deserves Great Credit’ for Sandy Response


Chris Christie decided there was no time to be exuberantly bipartisan like a week before an extremely close presidential election, and was full of compliments for President Obama’s handling of Hurricane Sandy. From The Hill:

“The federal government’s response has been great. I was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president, personally, he has expedited the designation of New Jersey as a major disaster area,” said Christie, in an interview with NBC’s “Today.”

“Last night, I was on the phone with FEMA at 2 a.m. this morning to answer the questions they needed answered to get that designation and the president has been outstanding in this. The folks at FEMA, [Administrator] Craig Fugate and his folks have been excellent,” he continued.

In a separate interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Christie added to the praise, saying that “the president has been all over this and deserves great credit.”
