18. Keep bringing it up all through 2014 or some will forget. Some less harmed may, others won't.

The GOP should not be allowed to gloss over this. One of the confusing things is the greater support that Christie is getting, in a way. Part of it is quite understandable, he seems to care.

But his philosophy of governance was shown in Tampa, his disregard for the people as a whole by supporting Romney in that snarling hatefest. And his crude and unbridled disrespect for Obama. I've read on DU that he refused to enact health exchanges in New Jersey, despite the harm it will do. If he's got an alternative plan, I don't know.

He gets big press complimenting Obama for doing his job to help the people of NJ, because Obama is for ALL Americans, not just his friends, but did he help Obama be in office? Or would he be just as happy if Romney had won, as he was so vile toward Obama at the RNCconvention?

If he had had his way and Romney was elected, would he be complaining about the GOP, or blaming Obama for the lack of infrastructure and aid for the people of NJ? And these other GOP governors and representatives in the Northeast, would they play this the way Bush did Katrina?

It appears the GOP is using the same gamebook they did then. The sacred deficit that they own by virtue of the Bush tax cuts and unfunded wars on the national credit card - they won't look at the benefits to their owners - instead they go after flesh and blood, down and out people, repeatedly.

Will the better off peeps in the Northeast forget the GOP way of running government and elect Scott Brown again, to take John Kerry's seat. I feel certain that they will re-elect Christie. But what about the rest who supported Romney?

The only solution Romney had to Sandy was to shut down FEMA (red meat to the teabagger, 'they're coming to get you' crowd) and give it all to private agencies such as Jeb Bush had started up in case of a Romney presidency. What many call welfare, extends to all agencies that look after the American people. They hate all of them, including the Post Office!

It requires a philosophy of unity and willingness to bring all people up in this country to vote Democratic and do this.

JMHO.
