Looks like Mitt's boy has a man crush on the President!
In TV interviews and on Twitter, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a staunch backer of Mitt Romney, was effusive in his praise on Tuesday for President Barack Obama’s handling of Hurricane Sandy.
“It’s been very good working with the president,” Christie said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He and his administration have been coordinating with us. It’s been wonderful.”
ContinueOn NBC’s “Today,” Christie said the president had been “outstanding” and FEMA’s response has been “excellent.”
The GOP governor also sent out a thankful tweet: “I want to thank the President personally for all his assistance as w recover from the storm.”
Christie said he spoke with Obama three times on Monday, including at midnight, when Obama agreed to speed along an major disaster declaration for New Jersey without all the “normal FEMA mumbo jumbo.”
The declarations for New Jersey and New York were issued this morning.
“The president has been all over this and he deserves great credit,” Christie said. “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.”
