NJ voters overwhelmingly back Christie's rebuke to House Republicans

(CNN) While House Republican leaders may not have enjoyed their verbal lashing from Gov. Chris Christie earlier this month over the delayed vote on a relief package for Superstorm Sandy, the governor's public scolding sure found support among New Jersey voters.

A whopping 79% of Garden State voters, including 70% of Republicans, say their GOP governor was right to criticize the Washington lawmakers, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

In a January 2 press conference, Christie skewered House Republicans, blasting Speaker John Boehner in particular, for not taking up the package when the chamber voted on the last-minute fiscal cliff deal the previous night.

"We respond to innocent victims of natural disasters, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans," he said. "Or at least we did until last night. Last night politics was placed before hosts to serve our citizens. For me, it was disappointing and disgusting to watch."

3. The Rs deserved it. In fact, some of the Rs still deserve a lashing. I want to see Paul Ryan

defend his "no" vote to Governor Christie. (maybe it'll come up in 2015-2016 debates??)

6. Or Jeb Bush. He's got the talent to be likable by the middle.

Its a Bush trait really. But Christie appears to be the real deal, unlike Jeb who's only in it for the money and power just like the rest of his siblings.
