14. He at least did not hesitate to ask for federal help immediately

My sister lives in NJ, and her husband is a staunch union man who despises Republicans with a passion. He grudgingly gave Christie passing marks for not ignoring Sandy as the Gulf Republicans wanted him to. Even NY, with its Democratic governor, didn't clean up the Sandy mess overnight. My elder daughter, who lives in Manhattan, was a volunteer on a clean-up brigade, and she said she thought it would take years to fully fix the damage she saw.

As for the social issues, no argument there. But Christie is no fool. He will hide behind the visible parts of his Sandy engagement, use the pics with Obama to his advantage, and remain silent about his awful social agenda until after the election when it is no longer a liability.

If I still lived in North America, I might indeed have come make calls and canvas, but it is awkward doing that with a full time job in a time zone 6 hours ahead of yours,
