It's amazing to see humanity in Chris Christie when he's not being an asshole

It had to take a major disaster for this to happen in him.

When the shit hits the fan, being an asshole won't get you anywhere. The rest of the GOP would benefit from Christie's example.

2. FAUX & FOOLS

Rev Al just showed a clip on MSNBC of him cutting deep, and cutting the hell out of FAUX & FOOLS this morning when they asked him if Romney would come the NJ.

4. He is worried about his reelection

He is a Republican governor of a blue state.

The best move for him politically is to not play politics and do his job well. Showing that he can work well with Democrats help build his own bipartisan credentials.

5. His picture in the Asbury Park Press with his arm around a crying woman, from Belmar I think. She's

crying and telling him her story, he has his arm around her and is listening. Quite the picture...

6. He Is A Good Politician...

...he knows what to say and do to fit the circumstances.

Note that when push comes to shove, he accepts the fact that government can do good things.

His comments surprised me...but he is a smart man.

I think we should praise those who see the light...positive reenforcement.

7. He's still an asshole, imo, he is just one of the smart ones...

He is up for re-election in 2014 and it's easier to snag the repub nomination and run as their candidate as a successful two term governor than a one-term failure.

He showed his assholery when he attacked the Mayor of New Jersey, lied about him, while the storm was still raging and New Jersey was the bullseye. He attacked him because he has a personal beef with the Mayor, a beef that had NOTHING to do with the way the Mayor handled things before and during Sandy.

10. Usually an asshole, but will break from party on principle. I remember

hom breaking from the teahadists when they were freaking out over some Muslim kerfuffel. He seemed almost human.

12. I wonder if he's changed..

.. allowing himself to be human because he lives
in a relatively human state.

14. I think it's time for MORE repubs & democrats to shake hands across the aisle and begin a healing

process...Our divided nation among the democrats and republicans is doing nothing but building a bigger wedge.

let's let some healing begin DURING THIS CRISIS....and I don't CARE how much of an asshole CC has been. There's ALOT MORE ASSHOLES where he came from...but let's take one at a time..and be able to talk to each other again.
