Christie phones Obama to congratulate, but only E-MAILs Mitty in consolation!

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told reporters Thursday he reached out to President Barack Obama with a personal phone call to congratulate him on his reelection. Mitt Romney, the man Christie had campaigned with and raised money for, got a conciliatory email, the governor said.

“We didn’t have a political strategy discussion," Christie said of his Wednesday phone chat with Obama, Bloomberg reports. "I said, 'Congratulations on your win last night, Mr. President,' and he said, 'Thank you.'"

Asked if he'd given Romney the same treatment, Christie said that he hadn't.

“No; we exchanged e-mails last night,” Christie said, according to Bloomberg. “We haven’t spoken on the phone yet.”

Is it wrong that, while disagreeing with 85% of his political views, I'm actually starting to like Christie on a personal level?

1. Yes, it is...



No, just kidding. But he seems a bit more human to me, too. Let's hope he has learned from all of this.

4. He probably cancelled Christie's calling card.
