If anything positive could come from this terrible storm, it’s Chris Christie throwing Mitt Romney under the bus. Here are just a few reason’s it’s awesome:
There’s nothing more valuable in the minds of lamestream pundits (as opposed to actual people) than for a top Romney surrogate and GOP governor of a blue state giving Obama “bipartisan credibility” by touring the disaster zone together and praising him endlessly. (Real voters don’t care about bipartisanship at all — just results that affect them personally — but dumb pundits don’t know that.)
Mitt is lamely trying to pretend he is better at “reaching across the aisle” than Obama. Well, there goes that.
Christie knows Obama is going to win, wants to get on his good side.
Christie has to run for reelection next year in a state that’s about to go overwhelmingly for Obama — he knows who to hug.
Like the rest of us, Christie is still a little bit afraid Mitt might win, which would ruin his plans to run for president in 2016 (those plans will crash and burn — his belligerent blowhard act is not going to play well nationally — but who cares), so here’s a nice kick in the chin from Christie for Mitt.
Disaster relief reminds Americans why they like government: not helpful for the party that wants to slash government.
