While New Jersey Residents Suffer, Governor Christie Goes on Saturday Night Live

Tens of thousands of New Jersey residents are without power. Many have lost homes and everything else that they have. Some don’t have enough to eat and others are struggling to stay warm.

This is not the time for a responsible leader to go do his self-promoting shtick on Saturday Night Live. But Christie seems so tone deaf that he puts his self-promotion ahead of anything else.

Yes Giuliani went on Saturday Night Live a few weeks after September 11, but that wasn’t a series of gags, it was a serious tribute to those who died in the attacks. It had very little in common with Christie showing off the same routine that he does every time he’s in the vicinity of a video camera. And at a time when New Jersey residents still need help, why is their Governor spending time on a comedy show cracking jokes about what people have been going through?

We’ve got people from Louisiana and North Carolina coming in to help New Jersey, while Christie hops from one photo op to another. Sandy, like everything else, has turned out to be all about the monumental ego of a big man who wants to be an even bigger man.

In Rahway, where many residents were still without power yesterday afternoon, 400 survival kits handed out by the Red Cross in the City Hall parking lot proved to be too few.

“All of a sudden it was like a big rush,” Red Cross worker Lauren Franklin said. “They went extremely quickly.”

For Monique Patterson, who arrived too late to get a survival kit, it was insult added to injury. “It’s been hell,” she said. “I have three kids and we have no power, no heat, for 13 days now.”

William Dickson, who works for the Union County city, said there has been little communication between authorities and residents about when PSE&G would restore electricity.

“It’s so cold at night I have to sleep with a blanket over my head and use my own breath to stay warm,” he said.

Maybe Christie could take a break from doing his own one-man non-stop comedy show to hand out some survival kits.

    So disgusted with him. This is he usa and our people are suffering like 3rd world countries. I'm ashamed and disgusted! There isnt anythng funny about this situation!!!

    • tymtrvlr

      Now wait a minute, you all in NY and NJ all kissed obama's butt and raced to the polls to make sure you gave the country 4 more years of the most worthless pathetic p.o.,s. to soil the oval office, and the reason was, because obama flew over, waved to you all and you all fainted thinking he held back the storm. Now, here I am thinking, wow obama flew over waved his arms and fixed everything and now all is back to normal. What did I miss?

      • BunnyDee

        If memory serves, G.W. Bush was getting roundly criticized for not reacting fast enough to hurricane Katrina. People acted as if the storm was his fault. Kenye West said, “George Bush hates black people,” positing that if the victims were white, they would not have suffered as long.

        Why aren’t you all blaming Obama, again?

        • teaparty01

          It could be that over 1,000 Americans died while DHS got their **** together, and this administration had rapid response teams and overwhelming support by most governorships that were affected. Thousands of lives were saved thanks to a competent government operating as it should with the necessary resources allocated. Not everything is about partisan politics you mental midgets.

          • Wheres my tini at

            Or, it could be that Sandy wasn't as strong when it came ashore as Katrina was, and most of New Jersey isn't below sea level. Yet you putzes will never entertain the slightest criticism of your holy messiah, nor the fawning, preening idiots who are honored to be allowed to lick his shoes. If this clown were actually doing his job, maybe his constituents wouldn't be shivering in the cold…But that's okay, isn't it, because he does good photo ops with the Great Leader?

          • objectivefactsmatter

            "Or, it could be that Sandy wasn't as strong when it came ashore as Katrina was"

            Oh my, you mean not all storms are equal to be compared as tests of presidents by body count?

            Huh…

          • John

            Are you as disgusted with our President? He watches American's die in Benghazi in real time, sends no help, leaves for a fund raiser then has his administration tell the American people it was all about a video. Why aren't you blaming the President for your situation, he's in charge of FEMA?

          • Kelly J

            Truth be told, this story is a diversion from the truth leaking out about the coup, cover up, and last several rigged elections. Know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled last year? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate or chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Sarah Palin wasn't in this last race because too many people learned why she was planted in the first race. Americans have lost democracy, freedom of press, and free speech is being trampled now by government posted propaganda. Learn what the media is blacked out from reporting on. This last election, and all other Obama cover ups, are exposed at PalinsDirtyLittleSecret. Search it, see the proof, and judge for yourself.

      • Ken M

        29 September 2001. Were you this upset when Rudy Giuliani, the Mayor of New York City on the day of the worst attack on American soil appeared on the same comedy show.

        And please, don’t hand me that “he wasn’t promoting himself” nonsense. EVERYTHING Rudy does or will do is self-promotion. Your feigned umbrage is poorly masked ideological hypocrisy.

        • Curly Bill

          Feigned unbrage? Allow me to retort. Try real umbrage. First of all, you undoubtedly were part of the "Katrina is George Bush's Fault" crowd and yet your guy gets a pass here. And Rudy didn't go on to tell jokes, but t o reassure NY'ers and the rest of the country it was OK to move on (with a full complement of first responders asurrounding him). Clearly, the ideological (or perhaps it's idiotic) hypocrite is you.

      • Tony Provenzano

        It's over for that Obama huggin' fat f__k.

      • CPP

        Awesome response!!

    • Mark

      Agree. Christie is a total buffoon.

      • teaparty01

        So wait, we hate Christie now? Ok. Weren't we just begging him to join the primaries this election? It's so hard to keep up with the borderline schizophrenic Drudge crowd. Carry on.

        • Lincoln Robertson

          Uhhh, so you know the party affiliation of people posting. Right.

          • teaparty01

            I think it's obvious enough for a kindergartner to understand. OBAMA BAD. Anyone who praises OBAMA BAD TOO. Never mind being a conservative firebrand and standing up for what's right. Now that he has praised people doing their job right you all are ready to disown him.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            "OBAMA BAD"

            Correct.

            "Anyone who praises OBAMA BAD TOO."

            If you must bet in advance, that's a safe one.

            "Never mind being a conservative firebrand and standing up for what's right. "

            That's fine but you haven't made your case just because you like the sound of being called a maverick or some bs like that.

            "Now that he has praised people doing their job right you all are ready to disown him."

            Yes, precisely why conservatives hate Christie. Conservatives hate praise. You've hit the nail right on the…no, you've missed it completely.

            You are at least halfway to liberal land yourself…just like him as a matter of fact.

        • Curly Bill

          Yes. Until he dropped his drawers and showed us his undershorts with the jack asses on them. When he hugged Billionaire Bruce and the prez and started to cry he lost a lot of us who saw through the cynicism of the prez's photo op response. So really, it isn't that hard to keep up, even for a leftist phony like you.

    • Dale

      I agree, He is disgusting.
      He has failed his state and he is out promoting himself on a comedy show. What a man !
      I wonder when he will have his "coming out" party and admit he is a Democrat/Liberal. Another Rhino.

    • SmartyJones

      Extremely disappointed to see this on FrontPage. First I'm going to call out the report cited here. I live in New Jersey and saw that report after the storm concerning Rahway and it's not a report from yesterday but at least a full week! It's a dated report and reflects true struggles in a region hit with a massive damaging storm and it's being misused here for purely political purposes here by Mr. Greenfield who I am calling out directly since he's a "fellow" of some sort who should know better.

      Over 2.7 million people lost power and most for at least a full week.

      You can knock Christie all you like but he's been a great Governor working against big deficits and a destructive political culture long before this hurricane created havoc and destruction throughout the state.

      He's been here in Hoboken and the full scale of damage is detailed here in an initial but limited report: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/hurrican

      There's been volunteers from all over the state and people from many places outside coming in to help others. It's been an inspiration and I ask that my fellow Americans to consider helping my neighbors:
      http://RebuildHoboken.org

      Governor Christie is placing the people of NJ first not politics but if some want to deflect on the horrid results from the election, look elsewhere. If you want to serve your country, I'd ask kindly for your consideration in any manner you elect.

      Thank you and God bless David Horowitz and Front Page.

      http:RebuildHoboken.org

      And for all of NJ's affected areas:

      He is indeed doing what politicians do best. Promote themselves. Obama is the best at it. Democrats in particular are camera and fame hounds. Sorry about your pain but get use to this sort of thing because this is what life will be like under these type of buffoons.

      Hey, Obama went to Las Vegas when Benghazi burned & 4 were murdered. So what's the problem with Christie?

      • Curly Bill

        Got a couple of hours?

    • angry in CA

      you voted for this…enjoy your misery…..wasn't it your leader who ran off to Vegas after a pit stop in NJersey?

    • http://twitter.com/KissMyAmFlag @KissMyAmFlag

      C Christie may only be the front man; bhusseino&krew are out to make themselves look good at the expense of reality, and seek to promote govt control over our lives. C Christie may have been used for the occasion, but there is an evil theme at work here, and he may have been simply staking out his territory within its perimeter.

    • Lincoln Robertson

      The only thing disgusting with this is the Governor has an R next to his name.

    • Cariline

      Yes, and worse than that he's a Republican and worse than that, he's just like Bush, and worse than that he's fat, and you know worse than that it's winter. How New Jersey will get over this……

        I am sure you are just as fat. Only fat liberals call other fat people fat!!! Lol

    • Hawaii Jeff

      Welcome to Obama's America!

    • dave

      Lol you didn't know the U.S is mostly a third world country. Haha man you gotta travel to scandinavia or Canada or at least some of Chinas vassal city states like shanghai. Id say Japan but the U.S. will never be what Japan is.

    • Just Saying

      Well, that is what happens when the people choose to be ruled by a third world dictator.

    • chris

      Whats funny is how New Jersey has turned away electrical linemen from non union states that would have helped you guys get your power back. I hope you guys enjoy the weather, keeping non-union workers out of the state seems to be more important than getting your power back on. Your anger is misplaced

    • mdonahue

      That is exactly what Obama did – went to Las Vegas to campaign (and Leno and Letterman) right after Stephens and his men were killed. I didn't hear one liberal protest Obama – but I forgot he gets a free pass. He is off limits. No matter what he does the press justifies his behavior. Double standard…

    • http://twitter.com/iresfrank @iresfrank

      It was barely 2 minutes. Give the guy a break. Shedding a little humor on misery is not only American but goes back as far as Ben Franklin. Nothing wrong with a moment of levity for God's sake!

    • Cynical

      Where is the outrage every time the Messiah Obama goes on The View, SNL, Jimmy Kimmel, etc, etc, etc . Where was he when the UN asked him to speak in NY – OH YEAH on THE VIEW!!! 4 Americans die in Libya and he flies off to Vegas, half of America is out of work, and he's on The View talking about his anniversary. WHERE IS THAT OUTRAGE???? It happens on a monthly basis with him. GIVE ME A BREAK>

    • TOM

      WHERE IS OBAMA? YOUR MAN…HE'S IN ASIA…..;HEY HE'S THE ONE WHO SAID THE FEDS ARE IN CHARGE HERE,,,,,WHT CAN CHRISTI DO? THIS IS OBAMA NATION…YOU VOTED IT. NOW LIVE WITH IT!

    • westfield

      He is just in love……ahhh CHRISAMA
      new celeb couple…..they tax they spend we suffer

    • Gobi

      So disgusted with him, huh? So who would be your President of choice? I won't make the assumption you like Romney since he is not a conservative even by my classical liberal standards.

      • Curly Bill

        By "classical liberal" you no dount mean "one who tells others what they think, because you are smarter than they are."

    • Mike

      Tina, do you even know what a third world country is? I'm disgusted with your apparent lack of education.

    • Guest

      Lighten up!! Christie deserves a little down time just like the prez.. Hmm, where is your president while you are suffering? Me thinks he escaped so that he doesn't have to deal with those without homes, heat and electricity in this country or that 4 americans are dead (unnecessarily) because he wanted to be elected president no matter what the cost. Oh yeah, and where's Hilary? She seems to have vanished from the face of the earth. Guess she's studying for her interrogation into Benghazi coming up in December. Get off your high horse and go out and buy or borrow a generator like the rest of us who lost power had to.

    • Paul

      Hey I thought Obama helped NJ out when he made his photo op appearance after the disaster. Oh wait he's overseas promoting himself while 1000s go without power in NY and NJ. Let the Gov have a little fun to releave the stress of dealing with it all.

    • chill666

      Did anybody care to vet the story of people in pain that this author used? The woman and situation in question happened over a week ago on November 11th in Rahway NJ. She has had power and heat for over a week now. Well before Chris Christe ever took to SNL..

      Monique Paterson said she had been without power or heat for 13 days, has anybody cared to look at a calendar to see that Sandy hit NJ 21 days ago? Her story was first published in the New Jersey Star Ledger on November 11th. This author is creating false outrage, Typical lib rag. I wouldn't line my bird cage with this.

      These people were interviewed on November 10th!!! These people have power and heat. the author is a disingenuous d bag.. He maks it seem like this was happening while CC was on SNL and that is completely false..

      Here is a link to the story from 8 days ago http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/aid_pour….

    • cabmann

      Hey folks, That AIN'T Christie, it is an actor, do a little research on the subject, This article is NOT truthful.

    • phil

      yes. christie is showing his true colors here. he is in politics for the points, the money, or whatever. the problem is that his reasons have nothing to do with serving others, only his own interest. the bottom line here is that he is a slob. he caters to whatever entity can garner him the most at the given moment. when he is finally out of office, the only legacy he will have is that he will not be missed or remembered.

    • Triple A

      See, this is what happens when you hang out with Obama like has has for a few days. He begins to do the same thing that Obama has been doing… well pretty much since he got into office. Only difference is the Left being so "disgusted" when a Republican does it.

    • former democrap

      So where's the outrage at Obama? He showed up before election day, made promises and did nothing,

    • fableraye

      I have lost all respect for Christie.

  • Mary Sue

    He's pulling an Obama.

    • joe b

      right on

    • tymtrvlr

      Actually he is pulling a republican, shooting himself in the foot, or sticking his foot in his mouth to give the marxist media all the ammo they need to have him voted out of office next cycle. The N.Yers and N.Jers will not blame obama for all his incompetence in handling this mess like the country did with G.W.Bush and hurricane Katrina, they will blame the mess on christie, just read these comments, obama is deflecting all the critisism while christie takes the hit.

      • dsfasf

        Amen tymtrvlr… Republicans are sore losers!!

        • carla

          you didn't really read his post, did you? Moron.

          • InformedNow

            dsfasf = Obama voter… Did you expect the post to be read before commenting? You know their type, they pay attention to politics one week before an election and the rest of the year couldn't give a crap!

            Regarding tymtrvlr's post, the press will always be against Republicans, same with most Hollywood PoS's and worthless rags like the NYT… so if he didn't do SNL they'd find some other fault. It's a fact of life for Republicans when you have to compete with not only Democrats, but multiple "fifth columns"!

          • Santa4Prez, Got One

            Obama should start his own roller blade team! He's great at skating by not taking any responsibility or doing any hard work!

          devilcrats are cheaters.They are so disgusting bragging about how they voted three times and how they were going to riot and Rape and slit Ann Romneys throat.Shoot Mitt Romney .Sore losers were laughing at you and waiting to see you get what you voted for.Unemployment No healthcare higher taxes if you have a job homeless by the thousands.Wait since YOU WON over 25,000 have oost their jobs.It's just the beginning.An Christe is Yukking it up on SNL.While he turns away utility workers because they are not unionized.He's a disgrace like all the so called leaders in NYC major FAIL.

      • Twinkie Bandit

        Interesting, like Blanco and Negrin got any blame at all for Katrina? No, just Bush.

      He's also the guy who was hugging Obama on Monday after Sandy hit. This guy is nothing but a joke.

      • DinVA

        Before Sandy hit thought he was legit but as soon as Obama arrived and took him for a ride aboard Marine One and Christie was reported to have said, "I had to keep pinching myself". Seriously? That's what he was thinking?? That's what he was focused on rather than all he suffering he was seeing? Yes, the guy is history in the GOP.

    • greyfox

      I really thought this guy was different, boy was I wrong. Governer Christie, I can see your state from here and it's not pretty.

    • Ruth

      Christie is a fool to do this. Only DemocRATS get away with stuff like this, he should know that.

    • Tomas

      Speaking of demo crates, on Sunday Biden visited Seaside NJ to show how much he cares. The suffering, stressed out masses trying to save whats left of their valuables. Had to spend hours in traffic waiting for Biden to leave. If these politicians really cared, they stay away from the worst areas and send in the military, heavy equipment, trucks full of food, water and basic supplies.

    • Twinkie Bandit

      Yes, that's true. But the press certainly won't rag on Obama over his stunts. Only Republicans get heat over these things.

    • Kelly J

      Don't believe what the media is reporting or what the government online has to say.

Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate or chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running?

    • Angel

      Are country is beyond corrupt. It's been taken over by a criminal banking cartel. People like Christie and Obama get to the top by promoting themselves and getting the cartel (globalists) to prop them up. It's like an experiment I did with my homeschooled son, fill jar with soil from the garden, then fill with water. All of the dead stuff and sh*t floats to the top! There's little difference between the parties. Like Ron Paul said in his farewell speech, "…one wants to spend on the military and the other on welfare…" I like how Johnson put it, " The candidates should wear racing jackets with patches from their sponsors." They would look exactly the same, bought and paid for by the same special interests.

    • JW2

      AMEN TO THAT!

    • aniee

      Remember that the next time you vote.

    • Gobi

      I think the real truth is that most Republicans are not quite as extreme in their actual beliefs as the vast majority of individuals responding to stories such as these may wish them to be.

      America Herself is a product of the Enlightenment and the Age of Reason. That connotes certain implicitly Liberal philosophies. It would be wise for those today who pay lip service to the Founders to consider this. So too would it be intelligent to actually read the Founders whose writings are available freely.

      I would suggest that the Far Right Wing of the Conservative movement today has nothing in common with the founders. It has nothing to do with Reason either, though the same could be said of the Democratic Party.

  • bluffcreek1967

    I sense that Governor Christie is getting a little too enamored with the MSM and quite enjoying all the attention he's getting. The liberal networks are warming up to him too because they see a potential 'comrade,' particularly in light of his recent praise of Obama in the wake of Sandy.

    It's embarrassing. I felt the same way when Sarah Palin went on SNL in 2008 in order to look 'cool' and be seen as more widely acceptable to the American public. But we often forget that the liberals are not interested in just 'poking fun.' They want to humiliate us, ridicule us and show that we are, at heart, hypocrites. They don't play fair, and they never will. Don't trust them and always be suspicious of their motives. They have a history of disingenuous and deceptive behavior.

      Well spoken and well written. As a former lib; I see many conservatives pandering in order to find some introspective for the themselves as a result of the last election. This is dangerous. The propaganda that the Left is trying to instill is very familiar to the early propaganda years of Hitlers rising.

    • SteveChgo

      Excuse me, Sarah Palin went on SNL during a an election cycle and not while Alaska was under a huge storm or something. Lighten up…What do you want, conservatives to be perceived as? Nuns?

      Palin's performance on SNL was brilliant…she showed she could be a good sport about the inevitable jokes any politician would put up with.

      Christie going on and doing what he did is a big difference.

      The guy is looking out for his state. Even If he has to swallow his pride and use Stalin to help his citizens. If your going to bad mouth him go volunteer or donate some money. Even Ron Paul would ask the gov for help for his constituents under these conditions.

    • Susanna Gordon

      You are absolutely correct. Sadly, half the country either does not see that, or does not care – I suspect the latter, since the left does not care who their messengers are, they only care about the Progressive, US-destroying message.

    This piece is something of a cheap shot. I watched SNL last night and it was clear Gov. Christie was promoting his state more than himself, and that far from downplaying the tragic storm destruction, he was making sure audiences out there didn't ignore the ongoing suffering.

    Face it: All American politicians, Right or Left, know that TV is the main medium for reaching the public. Moreover, our nation has a long tradition of showboating; everyone from H.L. Mencken to Andy Rooney has understood as much. I doubt the people of New Jersey are ashamed of their governor. They probably rolled their eyes, had a good chuckle and then went to bed.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      He seemed to be promoting himself a lot more than New Jersey. And his appearance was a collection of gags, mainly about him and his "leadership"

    • Meagan

      I agree, I thought it was well-done and quite funny. And honestly Christie wasn't showboating, that is genuinely what his personality is like. He's a Jersey boy and I know me and my family found it all very entertaining. And this article is a cheap shot, Christie wasn't making light of the crisis, but he was giving us a chance to laugh. Also, most of the state has power, even the areas where houses were destroyed, those that still stand have power. I know, I live there.

    • El Jeffe

    • Andrew Benson

      How could they watch it without power? SNL's ratings have been getting lower and lower so with that ad the continued power outages, I don't think too many people saw it. He has many better avenues to reach " the public" than SNL. This was "self promotion" all the way. They need a strong leader right now, not an entertiner.

    • segent

      You are making a huge assumption here — that the "the people of New Jersey" had the electricity to power their televisions to watch the show. I'll bet they would have really had a "good chuckle" if they knew that CC had banged a few union heads together, invited the non-union workers back in to get the state back on line, and THEN not been ashamed of the clown.

    • RockyMts.

      The New Jersey folks rolled their eyes, chuckled and went to bed? That is if they had a bed to sleep in since Sandy struck.

    • Jason Burnstein

      Watch this fat turd of a Governor fiddle while Rome burns. He has no sympathy for anyone, just an ego as fat as he is. He froze the retired state and local teachers, cop's and firemen's pensions by eliminating the cost of living (COLA) annual increases which were a mere 2 to 3 % , allowing pensioners to keep up with inflation. These retirees worked their entire careers with the expectation that that COLA would be there for them as it was for the previous sixty years. Several of the previous Governor's in NJ including Fat Boy raided the pension system money and squandered it on other programs, That pension system money was invested by the workers contributions. How fair is that of Fat Boy ?

      • Jack

        Most Fed, State, and local govt. workers are overpaid these days with the possible exception of the few qualified successful proven teachers and select EMS. The majority of the rest are hacks with little education and mostly unnecessary jobs that should be automated out of existence. They also retire way too early. If you go to work for the govt. you should do so with the understanding that you will never get rich or live a great lifestyle.

        Watch Jackie Gleasons honeymooners show to see the standard of living, no big screen tv's, motorhomes, or vacations. The FANTASY Bubble of the last 30 years is bursting!

        What will it take for you all to realize that you can't spend more than you bring in!! Unfortunately, you are "suffering" because there was no one watching or doing anything about the budgets. Don't blame it on Christie, he can't give you what doesn't exist. Grow up!!!

    • Janell

      I think its crazy that theres an article about this period!!! Prior to super storm sandy i wasnt a fam of our governor….however ….he handled this EXTREMELY WELL …of course there are ppl still without power BUT nit at all due to lack of concern or help …we have had a ton of help …n christie was with us thru it all he traveled to MANY town n cities …n like it or not Obama was here for us too ….for christie to go on SNL …that was an opportunity to talk to a broad audience about our t lil state ….us NEW JERESYANS ARE STRONG WILLED STRONG MINDED PPL …WE WILL REVIVE WE WILL REBUILD WE WILL RECOVER N I WANT TO SAY THANK U TO CHRISTIE TO GO ON NATIONAL TV N SHARE OUR LIL STATES STORY !!! N the added bonus of a lil comic relief …

    • Guest

      What gauls me is the crybabies out there who are complaining that they have no heat or electricity. I begged and borrowed to get a generator and walked miles and stood in line for hours to get gas for the generator. Obviously their 3rd world TVs and computers are working. Start looking at what your president is doing, or not doing. That is where the real tragedy lies.

      Yes the PEOPLE OF NEW JERSEY HAD POWER!! According to the NJ Office of Emergency Management All power companies had been restored (exception being the barrier islands where in most cases rebuilding must take place first)! That was as of Friday 11.16.12 at 8AM (http://readynj.posterous.com/). This STORY IS A MISLEADING! Click on the links they are from stories publish a 5-7 days before, Gov. Christie went on SNL.

    • Susanna Gordon

      McCain was never, I repeat, NEVER the "darling of the right." What planet are you on? The whole trick was to chose Palin to please, and appease the right, because of, once again, the choice of a RINO.

      McCain was always known as at best, a moderate, and if you really knew what the Citizens' United Decision was about, you would know that McCain's campaign finance reform bill was a violation of the first amendment and stifled free speech, especially around election times.

      Obama lied in his SOTU Address, but McCain had sold out to the left, which has no concern for the Bill of Rights these days. The Supreme Court slapped it down for that reason.

  • Rusty

    Wow, this article is a complete cheap shot. Google that article quoted about Rahway residents. It is from nj.com a full WEEK ago. Outdated. I am a NJ resident and can tell you that while I am not always a supporter of Christie I can tell you that during this storm he has been phenomenal.

Both parties have their demons but looking at the front page of Drudge, if I wasn't a well-read individual I would assume Democrats and Obama are the worst thing that has ever happened to humanity.

      Rusty, no one wants to hear the truth. A few weeks ago, Christie was a god to the right. He did what he had to do for the state and worked well with the President so now Christie is the devil. The article is a hack piece and feeds right in to those who now want to bash the governor. Do you think this would be on the Drudge Report if Christie was in the good graces of the right? No way!

  • JoeKrozac

    Newsflash! Doctors have determined that Governor Christie's excessive obesity is caused not by too many twinkies, ding-dongs and burgers, but by his insufferable oversized EGO which has become the largest organ in his body. Doctors said the risk of removing it is too high, as such a surgical procedure to remove an overactive and oversized ego would result in Christie being left a hollow, shriveled up husk.

    What to do, what to do.

      This will definitely happen one day…it is a scientific near-certainty that billions of years from now our sun will enter the red giant phase of stellar evolution and engulf the earth, and everything you described will occur….But today, we have the intelligence to understand what is actually happening from a rational, scientific frame of mind, rather than chalking it up to a fairy tale simply because we don't know any better. I am a believer in God and the principles taught by Christ; however, I am still cognizant of the fact that most of the stories that many so-called Christians cling to, are stories told by primitive people who thought the Earth was the center of the universe, and thought that women could actually be witches…their fables and fairy tales were intended to explain various phenomena that their primitive minds could not understand or explain. Today, we need not rest on such silliness….especially if it causes us to lose the ultimate message and purpose of Christ and the Bible in the process.

    Why the hell are you worried about governor Christie being on a comedy show for? If anything he is doing a decent job trying to lift the spirits of the area but he is government. If you are unsatisfied with your situation then change it.

    If you were watching Saturday Night Live while he was on it bringing attention to their dire situation then what have you done to improve the situation? Are you taking time out of your day to offer what you can for your community that needs you? By the tone of this article I think not.

    This isn't about government coming to the rescue of the people but rather communities coming to rescue ourselves.

    • segeny

      This is a jest, right? When the Southern "communities" drove (in their own vehicles and on their own dime) up to NJ to help, ObaMao's and CC's union buddies insisted that those 'communities' either join the union or take a hike — no non-union help wanted. So the Southern 'communities' took the hike. And what did CC do about it? Zip, nada, nothing. So either YOU or CC are the "joke" regarding communities coming together.

    Well deebal, for starters, the article they quote is a full week old. Trust me, a lot has changed in the last week. We are three now a full three weeks since the storm. Things have improved and Christie has been fighting tooth and nail for the residents of NJ. He did what was best for his state, as he is supposed to.

    • deebal

      The only reason I am saying Really? Hows that? It is because I have relatives and friends in NJ and they are struggling without power as of today, freezing their buds off, and having to survive on minimal of food…I am only going by what they are saying…And Yes I have been contributing to help out as best as I can…I am not rich…But there is no reason for Christie to be on SNL, there are other ways to reach out to people for help…

      • http://twitter.com/txshurricane @txshurricane

        If they're your family and friends, then what are you doing to help them? And why is whatever you're doing somehow more than what Christie has done?

        I grew up in New Jersey…have a brother, sister, father, and numerous relatives there. You know what they did? They prepared beforehand, and took care of themselves afterward. Thank goodness they don't feel the need to sit around, feel sorry for themselves, and blast Christie for taking some time for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that everyone wishes they could have.

      • NJStrong

        Really, Where do your relatives live in the middle of the Pine Barrens? You should tell them to call there power company, because as of Friday, 11.16.12 at 8AM the NJ Office of Emergency Management was reporting that power was fully restored. The exception is the barrier island which suffered catastrophic damage and need to be rebuild before power can be restored. And if they need food they should ask. Living on one of the NJ Barrier islands (luckily power was restored) myself that we had so much food donated that we sent it up north a week or so ago. Gov. Christie did a GREAT job and put people before politics. A true example of LEADERSHIP.

      • Canof Sand

        So… going against the GOP's choice of Romney was wrong because going 3rd party was a waste of a vote but if Christie or Jindal become the GOP's choice next time, you'll vote 3rd party? Absurdly hypocritical.

      • Canof Sand

        It won't be time for a 3rd party until the 3rd party 1) is significantly better than either party on all the big issues (Libertarians with a capital "L" fail at this), and 2) can actually win the general election. Support them leading up to the primaries but don't screw the country over during the primaries or the general election just to make a point – a point that isn't even truly being made to the public at large anyway.

      Truth is POWER was FULLY RESTORED by the time that my Governor went on SNL. Look at the dates of the stories linked in the story they were all from a week before he went on SNL. Power was fully restored (to places that could get power) as of at least Friday Nov. 16 at 8AM (http://readynj.posterous.com/).

  • sebassh

    This governor Christy in the photo reminds me of an old screensaver named "After Dark" which used to run mainly on the old Macs and PC's. There was a 3rd party screen saver add-on for it that was of a green Japanese Santa Claus that swallowed nitro glycerin. The figure bounces down and then explodes after several more bounces with a worried look. The bouncing sounded like a series of plump farts!

            The problem is he DIDN'T do something right. The aid should have been on the way by the time Obama decided "Oops, better drop in some foods and stuff"

        • JoeKrozac

          Just like a liberal, you attack the person making the comment. It's easy to promote Tom Kean for being a gentleman (unlike that fat slob Christie who is NO gentleman) because it's NOT about me you fool, it's about Christie. And Tom Kean is everything that Christie is not.

    Let's see…. Obama taken nearly 70 days vacation in the first 31 months, played over 100 rounds of golf on top of that, and untold numbers of appearances on letterman, leno, the view, etc.
    Typical that the Libs want to knock Christie for one SNL appearance.
    How about snubbing the Israel PM, not enough time in his schedule, but then showing up on Letterman during that trip to NY?

  • doctorjohn

    Christie always puts himself in the front of the line and I'm not talking about the "food line" in this case. That's what he was doing when he gave Obama that big bear hug right before the election; if you can figure that one out. If America can't do better than "Crispy Cream" Christie in 2016 then all is lost for America. And that may be the case since 50 plus percent of the voters in 2012 don't know the definition of SOCIALISM or that BIG GOVERNMENT is bad for INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY or even what that all means.

  • aventine

    If he went on LOCAL JERSEY TV, then no one outside of Jersey would have cause for an opinion now would they?
    Instead he is on NATIONAL TV making a spectacle of himself being a liberal progressive media suck up.

    Just another RINO. I hope the Democrat candidate who runs against him uses this footage juxtaposed against footage of suffering families in Jersey. Then lets see if Obama comes and returns the favor and revitalizes his losing election.

    Why don't you all stop your whining, complaining and disgusting name calling? Who of you are able to handle the mess that New Jersey is in right now? After the storm, Christie was there visiting as many disaster areas as he could. You could tell that he had very little sleep for days. When he wasn't reviewing the disaster areas, he was on the phone with the President trying to get help. He was there for his state and its residents. And all you disgusting wretches do is call hime names, make disgusting remarks about his size and sexuality. to those of you making such remarks, you're a bunch of pathetic human beings and should be ashamed of yourself. If he could get one ounce of help by being on TV, then good for him!!! He was not out to promote himself or for a photo op. HE WAS THERE FOR NEW JERSEY!!!!

      Gosh Mora, are you saying that if Christie hadn't kissed up to Obama that the all powerful Messiah wouldn't have given help to New Jersey?

    Give the Governor a break. Even under terrible circumstances there is nothing wrong with a little humor. The Governor has been working non-stop for the people of New Jersey. What do people think he should do, lock himself in the Governor's Office until everything is fixed? Get a life people. Yes, people are cold and there is shelters and the Red Cross to help. There is a lot of damage that will take a long time to repair and replace. That doesn't mean that life must stop.

  • SmartyJones

    Extremely disappointed to see this on FrontPage. First I'm going to call out the report cited here. I live in New Jersey and saw that report after the storm concerning Rahway and it's not a report from yesterday but at least a full week! It's a dated report and reflects true struggles in a region hit with a massive damaging storm and it's being misused here for purely political purposes here by Mr. Greenfield who I am calling out directly since he's a "fellow" of some sort who should know better.

    Over 2.7 million people lost power and most for at least a full week.

    You can knock Christie all you like but he's been a great Governor working against big deficits and a destructive political culture long before this hurricane created havoc and destruction throughout the state.

    He's been here in Hoboken and the full scale of damage is detailed here in an initial but limited report: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/hurrican

    There's been volunteers from all over the state and people from many places outside coming in to help others. It's been an inspiration and I ask that my fellow Americans to consider helping my neighbors:

    http:RebuildHoboken.org

    Governor Christie is placing the people of NJ first not politics but if some want to deflect on the horrid results from the election, look elsewhere. If you want to serve your country, I'd ask kindly for your consideration in any manner you elect.

    Thank you and God bless David Horowitz and Front Page.

    These posts are astounding. A few years ago, Christie was a champion of the Conservative movement, developing a reputation as the straightest-shooting politician in the nation. Conservatives across the country practically begged him to run for President because so many were certain he'd be more formidable than anyone in the 2012 lineup. Now, he's going the way of John Roberts and Olympia Snow. Why? Is it because he had the gall to actually engage in some public cooperation with a Democratic President? That's when it all started going downhill, anyway. It's embarrassing.

    This was a cheap shot – Christie has been running non-stop since the storm hit, tossing politics out the window in the last few days ahead of the election, taking time to show his majesty around the damaged areas, and doing certainly far more than Bloomie has done across the river.

    I got nothing but respect for Christie here, and while I didn’t see the SNL schtick, a little levity is not out of line after several weeks of mayhem and destruction. Put it in perspective. Obviously this writer either has not or cannot.

  • Chris

    Seriously? The state is paying for electrical workers to pull extra shifts. Is Christie and electrical worker? Is there any knowledge about the power grid he has that requires him to be anywhere that they are working? What kind of expectations do you have of a governor.. I mean, putting aside anything else, do you really think his physical prescence would change one thing about the work going on?

  • Jake

    I could not agree more. Governor Christie helped President Obama win the election… Great! Romney was and is a loser, just like all Conservatives. You are the past, and Progressives are the future. Christie knows where his bread is going to be buttered. Democrats Rule!

    But I thought everything was solved once Obama was there.

  • Elijah

    This is indicative of how much most elected officials really care about the public. Even I just called him an official when it was once 'public servant.' Just like the POTUS, he needs to get out there, clown around, & be popular. For some, it's power and ego, for others – it's bribes and secret deals. Seldom does it involve truly helping the nation or state. Soon enough we'll be 'enjoying' our wars and financial collapse…

  • Deo

    Thats the first thought that came into my head when I tuned into SNL…I think the same thing when I see a President golfing or entertaining Hollywood types through wars, natural disasters or just really bad times…Its just bad politics. Christie should have asked/requested/demanded that he be able to get a little serious and post a 800 number and ask the how ever many millions of viewers to donate to the victims of Sandy as he would have been a winner either way and all the way around!

    • PQuirk

      So is it your belief that elected officials be on the job 24/7 for the entire length of their term? As long as there is one person in America who is not 100% happy, then the President shouldn't take a moment off? I am no fan of Obama but every President of the United States does a great deal of work, attends meetings and briefings all day long and is expected to hold the free world together. Do they not deserve the occasional day off, round of golf or vacation?

But NO… we listened to the dumb blonde never practiced lawyer yelling “it’s AMNESTY !!: BULL POOP., It was NOT. It was a GREAT PLAN. We have to stop falling for the media PICKING OUR CANDIDATES or we will KEEP GETTING Romney’s and McCains and THAT means we keep getting OBMAMAS. THINK THINK….Do yo know they are talking about EIGHT YEARS OF PRESIDENT MICHELLE ??????????????????

  • Reasonable Sean

    Its amazing how easily the author and most of these commentators have thrown Christie under the bus. While months ago, you were all hoping this man would run for President this year, and you all loved him, right up until Hurricane Sandy. Then, when the storm hit, and President Obama surveyed the damage and Christie welcomed him with open arms to help in the recovery, you turn away. All of a sudden, Christie welcoming the President is the reason Romney lost, and Christie going on SNL for a 3 min sketch shows that this man is a pig and loves the media attention! This man has been working non-stop since DAYS BEFORE the storm, and you bash him for taking a break? None of you would handle his job half as well as he has. You people love to sit their and just criticize every little detail, and have no idea of how much work this man put in to make sure this disaster was as limited as it was. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    • Tim

      He’s Republican in Name Only. I never wanted him to run. He’s the same caliber as Romney was except less distinguished. Either one would be a suitable replacement for what he have now. But I vote Republican all the time since 2008 and I never liked Christie. His speech at the RNC was a huge letdown.

    • Kallister

      Thank you Mrs. Christie.

    • Jamesb

      What are you prattling on about? NO ONE I know wanted Chrispy Creme Christie to be the GOP nominee, NOBODY.
      Or the Veep. Amongst other issues, Chrispy has a “Muslim” problem and a big mouth.
      His ” tough guy/Jersey boy” routine wears thin quickly, but his willingness to capitulate to Democrats makes him intolerable. New Jersey is A DISASTER AREA – TWO WEEKS LATER and he’s GOOFING AROUND.
      You have ZERO idea what you’re talking about.

  • boB

    He reminds me of Bloomberg terms 1/2. A self-serving RINO. Bloomberg completely usurped the will of the people by having term limits lifted by the city council which were put in place by the people. Now Christie has brown lipstick and makes fun of the strife the people of New Jersey are going through. At least with a Democrat governor, it was in the open and you knew what you were dealing with.

  • fedupwithgovenment

    So you want power after only 13 days? Why don't you address your request to the union leaders in JCPL who refused to let non-union power company workers help.

    Im here in NJ with family who lost their home and another family member in who's home is damaged horribly and without heat still when the Hackensack river breached Gov Christie has been a great Governor so lay off. There is just so much the government can do for us and hes done it. Many had power on within the first week-10days and the towns that are still out have town councils who need to take care of their citizens and make sure trees are removed so lines can be restored. FEMA has been going from door to door. Police and military presence has kept crime down The towns have been seeing so much help from churches, businesses and charities. They should be the people helping us and they are here in force. Here in the North East its just in our mindset that government is the answer for everything and now we're getting a big dose of the reality of what the rest of the country has known probably for decades through floods, tornadoes and droughts VOLUNTEERS and those who Donate food and supplies make the difference. Neighbor taking care of neighbor. Christie has been working his butt off from day one. Hes down to earth and we like him like that. I laughed at his appearance on SNL because it was funny. We're hurt not dead here in NJ so we can still laugh. We're a pretty strong bunch. If I had one bad thing bad to say about Christie it would be I wish he'd lay off the Springsteen kool aid.

    Now that he's the new golden boy for the libs and democrats, it's ok for him to make fun of people's suffering. The libs said they were happy the storm came, the libs laughed about "shovel ready" jobs as 25 million people are out of work.
    Christie is a disgrace, he should just change parties and admit his a liberal then Obama can openly thank him for getting him re-elected.

  • Adam

    Both of the articles you've linked to about the current state of NJ are at least a week old, and Christie apparently was on SNL last night. I'm not claiming to have any idea as to what the current situation is in New Jersey, but I'm also not terribly confident that you do either, if you're pulling from week-old news on a fast changing situation like this. I'm not sure if you're aiming to be outwardly disingenuous here, or if you're just lazy.

    Ya' think ya' coulda found some actually recent articles to link? Especially considering the centerpiece of your piece is bad timing on Christie's part?

  • Eagle in NYC

    Christie Todd Whitman was swept into office in 1994 by the same storm surge of "Taxed Enough Already", conservative fervor that would birth the real Tea Party movement sixteen years later. She campaigned heavily on cutting taxes and ridding the state of the insidious Democrat corruption that strangled statewide, exemplified by her predecessor, "Flim Flam" Florio. She was a hot, rising star in the conservative Republican, national movement. Until she rejected her conservative principles to become just another, split-the-difference, Northeast, Rockefeller Democrat… er, I mean "Republican". (But I heard that the Establishment Media wrote fewer hit pieces on her after her conversion. So it must have been worth it to her. And more cocktail party invitations too, I'm sure.)

  • richievee

    You're not funny Christie, you're fat…and looks as if you would be but you're not

  • laffin'atcha

    Once he put his fat arm around Obama and kissed Obama's arse to get the FEMA money, Christie's political goose was cooked. He might as well get a little in return…

    • bhartman36

      Right. Because it's such a horrible crime to say nice things about someone when you're trying to get money from them, right?

      Seriously, do you tea party types listen to yourselves?

      • voyeur

        You do realize disaster relief would have arrived without Christie rolling over, begging, kissing Obama's arse while nonchalantly stabbing Romney in the back . Christie' was a complete loser that day!

  • Eagle in NYC

    Well, this Christie has all the same hallmarks of the 1994 model. Swept into office promising tax-cutting, job-creating, wealth-building conservative principles. Only to show his true colors as just another "Love me, please love me, Establishment Media", kiss-ass to Obama, spineless hypocrite. Meanwhile, his constituents got treated far worse than New Orleans did after Katrina, and yet he's out there, lips-to-ass with Obama every time a camera passes by, letting unions dictate what repair crews fix downed electrical lines and publicly telling FEMA that their half-assed response is just fine by him.

    It reminds me of Charlie Brown getting fooled by Lucy every time he steps up to kick the football. The only advice for voters in New Jersey I would give is, that if the "conservative" is named Christie, run away.

  • Paul

    Much ado about nothing. Anyone annoyed about Christie appearing on SNL probably needs to take a little break from partisan politics. He says Obama is helping out his state, and all of a sudden he is enemy #1 of conservatives. Keep that s#%t up, and Republicans will never win another WH election.

  • Rod Flash

    Christie is a total fraud and a lunatic. He doesn't give a flip about America's future.

  • Frank Arden

    I am a conservative. There is something I don’t trust about Christie. Any intelligent man that is so obese as he is ought to have the intelligence to do something about it. Further, as a conservative, I don’t like his reckless mouth. He’s almost as offensive as Allen West.

    It’s easy to go before the cameras and say hot-blooded things about hot-blooded things that please hot-blooded people to get even more hot-blooded, but that is not leadership.

    Christie has a deep psychological problem because he is obese. He wants, and will do almost anything, to be loved just so he doesn’t have to consider losing weight.

    He has a disease called “Morbid Obesity.” This means the man could drop dead tomorrow of a heart attack. Look at him. He’s gotten fatter since he was NJ’s Attorney General before he became governor.

    I really don’t want, nor intend, to sound hateful of fat people. I need to lose more than a few lb’s myself, but Christie won’t admit it publicly or do anything about it quietly. Yet, he goes about the media with his 500 lbs running his mouth (when it is not inhaling food).

    By the way, have you ever seen him smile? Perhaps I’ve missed something, but he always has this smirk, an upside-down smile which, I suppose, all of us would have if we thought deep down that we looked like Mr. Potato Head with hands and feet the size of tooth-pics in relation to the rest of us.

    And now I see he is joking on SNL while people in his state are still cold, wet, starving and still without power only two weeks after he rubbed his grotesquely larded belly against the president’s lean frame the very week of the election and two months after he was the keynote speaker at the Republican Convention followed by some of his most caustic criticisms of the president in the last two years.

    New Jersey voted overwhelmingly for Obama and was always expected to do just that, and Obama was just doing his job to visit that state and to recognize the disaster there. I hope he would come down here to Georgia after a similar catastrophe. I expect he would. There was no need for the fat Christie to grovel before the president like that other than to satisfy a deep and complicated need to be loved.

    Another thing, the US needs to tighten its belt on spending and cut its clothes according to its cloth.

    How can anyone ever become a conservative national leader who preaches fiscal responsibility and spending limits if they have no idea how to tighten their own belt?

  • YosemiteFudd

    If by "done a great job" you mean fellating his Dear Leader Obama during Obama's photo-op — where Dear Leader made no apologies about using the storm and fatboy Christie as political props and a political backdrop — right before a crucial presidential election … then, yes, this fat bag of crap is really knocking it out of the park.

  • Nergol

    OK, seriously, some people need to grow the hell up. The President of the United States showed up in Gov. Christie’s state after a major natural disaster, and because Christie received him with cordiality and the respect due his office instead of punching him in the gut, spitting in his eye, flipping him the bird, or behaving in accordance with some or another of the childish revenge fantasies that float around in the minds of people with ten tons of ideological zeal and not an ounce of class, all of a sudden he’s the biggest traitor since Vidkun Quisling.

    Seriously, I worry for our political system when I see childishness on the level I’ve seen in the wake of this election – both the insufferable gloating on the left and the hysterical, classless finger-pointing on the right. If this is really what we’re all going to act like, then we really don’t deserve, and obviously aren;t mature enough as a nation to handle, self-government.

    • Cal-Con

      To help you out Eric, here's the point that is so obvious that most people commenting here don't bother to mention it: Obama wasn't interested in helping the storm victims when he visited New Jersey, rather, as a struggling candidate, he just wanted to get some good photo ops with an all-too-willing Republican governor. That's why we "right-wing freaks" are upset with Christie. Because his acceptance of Obama had little to do with helping his constituents, and everything to do with positive publicity for them both.

      By the way, I just read that one of your heroes, Timmy Geithner, just said he believes the debt ceiling should be abolished and the debt be allowed to spiral up into infinity. Eric, you're the pathetic one for voting for and enabling these human wrecking balls like Geithner and Obama to destroy our country. You don't see how you're throwing yourself over a cliff, but the worst thing is, you're dragging the rest of us responsible people over the cliff with you.

    Nergol – Self government requires self government by each individual. That requires a willingness to be responsible for oneself – to observe the rule of law and understand the proper role of government. It is the supporters of the Usurper in Chief who are not capable of self government, instead they want a government that uses coercive measures to take from their neighbors and fellow citizens – to take from those who work to support themselves and their families. The anger and rage people have about the invasive, punishing leviathan that has taken on a life of it’s own and tried to demolish the basis for our nation is actually justified. A group of deceitful, greedy sociopaths think they can use force to get compliance from the very people from whom they derive their power. They are supposed to be our servants not our masters – the same goes for police, fire ad every other public employee – the real title is public servant. Unfortunately I doubt anything anyone says will penetrate your blind allegiance to progressive – should I say divisive politics.

  • Cal-Con

    I was suspicious of Chris Christie as a politician even before Sandy, but he lost my support and my respect forever when he welcomed Obama the opposition party’s candidate into his state just days before the election and gave him the photo ops he desperately needed. Obama could do nothing for New Jersey except get in the way and be a distraction, but he needed the positive publicity, and Christie was there to oblige. Don’t tell me Obama’s visit was good for the people, it was pandering, and nothing more. Christie helped Obama and hurt Romney, and for that, he should be shunned by conservatives the rest of his career.

  • janvones

    Those who attributed poitical ambitions to Christie were but half right. His obsequious embrace of Obama, schoolgirlish fawning over Bruce Springsteen and now his audition on SNL show that he is ambious for stardom in showbiz, not politics. Given his dimensions, it is only apt that he lumbers into Hollywood like a 18 wheeler manure truck. And who would deny that he is capable of launching into his career with a substantial splash? I can see him playing the role of Minnesota Fats in a remake of the Hustler. He is made to order for a screen biograhy of Fatty Arbuckle. Once he has honed his talent, he should be able to reprise the role of the Fatman in a remake of the Maltese Falcon.

    The only jerk here is this post's author. Notice how he conveniently leaves out what was said by Christie on SNL. Christie has used his personality very effectively to draw attention to what has happened. Yes the East Coast is still suffering, but the TV crews have moved on, so it's good for us West Coasters to be reminded they still need our help. Got me to donate to the Red Cross again. I'd also add that Christie has superbly handled the response as far as I can read from any objective source. All this aside, it was a very funny appearance.

  • Dean

    Acting like the liberal Democrat that he really is.
    This joke made the statement that he didn’t care about the Presidential election he just cared about getting help for his state. Pretty short sighted, let the country go to hell as long as I get money from the Feds to take care of what’s mine.

  • skifri3

    This kind of article really only weakens the GOP.

    This is pretty much why the GOP loses… The election is over and Romney lost! We need to get over it and cut the petty BS like in this article. We blame Christie for helping Obama win, but hey, there'd be no Christie-Obama moment if it wasn't for Sandy. How about we start blaming God for sending Sandy to ensure Obama's victory? I'm sure that'll make you feel better, right?

    Time to get past this election and build a winning coalition to take back the Senate in 2014 and the presidency in 2016. If we waste all our time bashing Republicans who run liberal states, we'll never take back the presidency.

  • Richard Boyen

    CHRISTIE is no more or less then a animated pile of demon inspired pig feces! A PIG who should be a "poster FAT BOY punk for BIG MACS"…a phony human being…a self serving dog in rabid political heat who needs to be politically neutered and thrown in jail for being a liar and thief and killer….yep…KILLER…to leave Americans to die in the conditions they are in in HIS STATE is to be guilty of PREMEDITATED MURDER!

  • Sandra

    Apparently, you do not understand that along with being somewhat entertaining on SNL, Christie is also tasked with making sure the rest of the country does not forget about New Jersey, and its citizens who are making do under extremely difficult conditions. Anything he can do to keep New Jersey from slipping from front page news, as reportage of other dire world conditions take its place, is a good thing. I am not usually a fan of his, but he sure has stepped up to remind the world that his state is suffering, and I am sure that has prompted some donations that might otherwise have been late in coming. So, good for him, representing for his state.

  • Dave

    This is a true tragedy. However, this is another example of entitled people not taking care of their own. If everyone were radically self-reliant, with a generator, food, water, blankets and emergency shelter on hand, neighbors could rely on one another, and not wait for the government to swoop in and help them.

    I'm planning on donating to Christie's challenger when he's up for re election. And I'm registered Repub. This bucket of lard was thinking of his re election. Oh I'm glad he helped his state, but it hurt our national election. It's pretty common knowledge that some people saw his photo op with obama and some voted for obama because of it. Well that hurt us nationally. Gonna throw my money for his challenger.

    Yes, because nothing says you care more than having no sense of humor when people badly need a laugh

    • Foggyworld

      Thank you Governor for finally doing something right. Many of us haven’t laughed in three weeks and I for one think you should go on SNL which is on your own time and keep it up.

      On the other hand, it’s kind of unfair to blame the governors for what is missing national (Red Cross) and federal (FEMA) money which is what is needed by these states. We folks paid those premiums and gave to the Red Cross and now just have to ask where did the money go?????

      The federal head of FEMA said much of his budget was transferred by the President to Homeland Security because he and his team (according to Bob Woodward’s latest book) decided that they again were masters of the universe and could convince each other that we wouldn’t see another Katrina for 20 years.

      I do think we also have way too many double and triple dipping Mayors in NJ who just aren’t around and as usual aren’t doing much more than collecting another paycheck and huge pension. That the Governor said he would stop and he has not.

      And to talk about raising NJ taxes which are the worst in the nation in that we pay the most but receive the least back from the Feds. Something has to be done about our two senators who get away with our being short changed year after year.

      So let the Governor help us by laughing on some Saturday nights but please then Sir, get back to your desk and halt the issuing of building permits to such out of date codes because without a freeze or a xeroxing of say the North Carolina coastal building specs, people are just patching up the same old things the same old way. That should stop tomorrow and anything new should be built to the xeroxed NC specs. Then let your commission do it’s collective thing and once again we will see a group trying to design the perfect horse but instead producing a camel.

      We can’t wait for any more studies. Most of those affected are very aware of what needs to be done and are disappointed at all the pushing off of dates. And maybe there is a legal way to get rid of the President of JCPL who apparently is incapable of doing his job and of telling the truth..

    I don't know of any Jersy citizen who cares more about the welfare of the state than Christie.

    First SNL mocked Christie during the height of the storm which was irresponsible and in poor taste to the governor and people in the tristate area suffering. His choice to come on to SNL was poor judgement while people remain in NJ without shelter, clothing, food, the crisis is NOT OVER and no one should be advancing their career on the backs of victims.

He never said that he was voting for Obama, the only thing he said was that he thanked the president for his support but the GOP wanted to make a Katrina out of this!!! Just like right nowthey want to prosecute the president over Libya…when Bush left people were asking Obama if he wanted to prosecute Bush over the death of 3,000 at the WTC because they knew and could prevent it but decided not to do anything about it. That is why the GOP lost!!!

    This article is such a joke, the author is sooo upset with Christie offending his constituents, I wonder is the author a resident of New Jersey, if not, shut up. Worry about your state ad quit interfering in others. Last time I checked governors do not work on power lines or for cable companies so I’m not sure what you think he should be doing. Also, last time I checked people without power cannot watch TV so clearly they are not bent out of shape about this as you are. Our country would be much better if people would focus on the issues of their own states and quit interfering in others, we are a country of states not one big country.

  • spiritwolf

    From the Jersey Shore slammed by Sandy, many friends & family lost everything, yet they all appreciate a little humor to lighten their pain over their loss. If Christie did not appear, SNL would have done a skit without Christie & they wouldn't have plugged in support or how to donate. Before Sandy hit land Christie began & to this day continues to focus on taking care of his people & state. Lighten up people or go live in NY where the Governor did & continues to do less than an adequate job.

  • Votarus4

    Seth Meyers has put a serious end to his last 2 shows, asking for donations for the victims of Sandy. That Christie dropped by on his own time to bring it up yet again is what’s called using humor to get your point across. Millions of people saw that sketch and were reminded again of the ridiculous situation these people have found themselves.
    Also note, some of the things Christie said cut right to the core with folks who have been slow or incompetent. He wasn’t just having laughs on SNL, he purposefully ticked off organizations that let his state down. Much as I despise the easy-target of Christie, I’m impressed with how seriously he takes standing up for his state in a time of need. He’s a blow-hard, sure, so let him blow. It’ll be good for donations.

  • Long Islander

    For the Floridian commenting on NJ being babies….Being out of power in Fl is a lot different than being out of power in NJ. The temperature's been dipping into the freezing point with frost on the ground. We were w/o services (power, gas & phone) for 19 days. We slept with 7 blankets on us. The house cannot get warm with no walls, insulation or rugs. Try comparing apples to apples not to oranges in Fl.

    Give the guy a break. He's blowing off some steam, and not once did he say anything negative about NJ, the Red Cross, the first responders, etc. He made sure the kudos he gave out were sincere, and reminded people that the hurt and pain caused by Sandy is going to take a while to heal.

  • 1stThron

    Under the Katrina rules of the Blame Game, neither mayors nor governors are at fault only the President of the United States is at fault. Governors and mayors are suppose to be source for the press to criticize the president, not take responsibilty. Please remember, the president during Katrina had pre-staged necessary supplies and equipment before the storm and immediately demonized. The Protected Liar never did any pre-staging for Sandy and he was glorified for how he managed the crisis. But then the Protected Liar is a Democrat and its good to be a Democratic president when you fail to adequately respond to storms, ambassadors under fire, gun running to Mexco, unemployment becoming a growth business, and on and on and on………

  • the truth

    Listen Cristie and Obama did a horrible job with Sandy. You just dont hear about it like Katrina because the shameful media covered for Obama. Christie is a bozo and a disgrace, He tried to use this storm to further his political career, to appeal to moderatesa when he runs for president by holding hands with Obama. It backfired. No conservative republican will EVER vote for this ahooole.

He has pushed and pushed. As far as all three mayors go they have done excellent jobs. It was a n act of nature and they are not god. Here is an idea why don't you get pissed at the anointed one you idiots voted back in office since he and you think he is god.Funny how Christie being a republican gets a beat down while the idiot Democrat in the White House once again is left alone by the press. Hmmm me thinks Bush heard plenty when Katrina was a problem but some how (maybe even because they know he has nothing to give) Obama is getting no hassle.

    Really disappointed by Christie over the last few months. First, a self-serving speech about HIM at the Republican Convention. Then, declaring the President as a practically a hero in the Sandy situation (how's that going? Seems very Katrina-like, and this time there wasn't even a levy break to go with a cat 3 or above hurricane, doubling the disaster that Bush had to deal with). Now, self-promoting on SNL as his state suffers? The worst part of the whole deal was when he knowingly propped up the President before the election (Christy's no dummy, he knew what it would do for Obama). Christy tells us for months how important the election is for our country's future, and our grandchildren's economical future, then he says after Sandy — screw the election, all that matters is this huirricane? So he says to heck with the future of our country because a single storm is more important? How is one disaster worse than your nation becoming a disaster, posibly for generations? Lost me there, sorry. Will never vote for Christy, and I'm not alone.

    Just like your darling Obama. The country is facing a fiscal crisis due to the lack of a federal budget for 4 years Obama has been in office. Obama is noa a leader but an empty suit. The middle east is facing an all out region wide war like nothing we have seen before. Where are Obama and Hillary? They are on a Junket to Phuket, Myanamar, and Asia. Nero Obama is Fiddling while Rome is Burning under his feet. At least Christie can hop in the car and he will be in Jersey in 10 minutes NYC is not on the other side of the world. Where is Liberal Jesus, your savior Obama, palying in the far east instead of managing the domestic and international crisis he helped create.

    Hypocrits the lot of you at Front Page.

  • ObamaIsGodAwful

    This is truly a sad time for our country. We elect celebrity personalities with little good sense to high office rather than the best qualified minds devoted to a Constitutional government. We have an unappreciative, immoral citizenry that totally lacks virtue and principle, a citizenry that fusses about the inadequacies of charity rather than thanks for the the considerations of others on their behalf. Our government has become a tool for that defective citizenry to plunder their neighbors and accomplish feats of transgression that would have incurred penalties upon the common man doing the same himself.

    Governor Christie has skitted himself out of the opportunity for the Presidency, and for that I am grateful.

  • IndianaRedneck

    Much ado about nothing. As a staunch conservative, I don't see the big deal except that some people (like 99% of the posters here) just want to nitpick now that Christie helped hurt Romney's campaign. And considering that you all have time to post on here, I'm assuming you've already went to NJ and helped rebuild, right?

    Grow up and lighten up. In a period of crisis, maybe it's good for the people (and their leaders) to have a little fun now and then. Laughter helps soften the blow of an otherwise terrible situation.

  • mike

    You can tell which of our states have the dumbest people by who they vote for!

  • Lawrence

    I knew this was coming.
    I think he should have put in a pitch for donations to a Sandy charity at the end but what he did was not making fun of the tragedy. Also I think that since he was the most active of the three (the 2 Govs and the mayor of NYC) maybe he needed a short bit of a laugh.
    Give him a pass

  • Teresa

    Plenty of people died due to Sandy, also… I'm not getting the jokes. It's just very shallow behavior. SNL has been at it for weeks now.

    • Rascal69

      Let’s face it, SNL hasn’t been worth the paper it’s printed on in several years. I sometimes try to actually watch the show, hoping something will improve. But no, this show is so outdated and poorly written the cast members can’t get out of the way of their own jokes. Where’s John Belushi when you need him? Oh, that’s right, he’s dead…and so is SNL.

  • Shel

    I saw this. I hope everyone commenting also saw this. Because, if you did, you know this article is a hit job. I’m not even a Christie fan and I can see that. He thanked the appropriate people, made a joke about his fleece being part of his skin, and criticized mayors who refused to evacuate and reporters who needlessly put themselves in danger. The brunt of his humor was laughing at himself, something more people apparently need to learn to do. In the end, he promoted Atlantic City by reciting part of a Springsteen song. I’m sure that Christie and the state is worried about all of the tourism dollars they are going to lose over this. All of those communities will need cash to rebuild what has been lost. Before you get all hyper critical of that, remember that those tourist dollars help fund the state. Christie did his job. He did it on SNL because it attracts a demographic that needs convinced they will be able to come back to play in Atlantic City. Besides, everyone needs to laugh sometime.

  • Sparky2

    Christie knows that the only way you can be elected president is to have the NY/Hollywood media on your side…how he got elected governor in a blue state. This factor is why its very difficult for a Republican to be president in this media age. So Christie got carried away and thought this would enhance his image as much as when he played up to Obama to the point he embarrassed himself to the Republican Party. He may have overstepped his glorification.

    You call foul when a republican governor goes on SNL but no one puts up a fuse when our president goes into the rose garden and tells the nation 4 Americans were killed in Libya by spontanous rioters over a video which we now know was a planned terrioist attack then follows to fly out to Vegas and NY for camagin dinners??? Christie goes on SNL 3wks later to promote NJ. The president leaves his post as commander in chief the same day and a few days after to worry more about his campagin then figuring out what really happened in Libya and who screwed up. We have a screwed up society. Double standards. We need to stop the my team is better then yours. Our country is OUR country. We are all Americans and we need to stop picking sides and start coming together for the future generations. Or history will repeat itself and we will go into the history books like the Roman Empire and all those other nations that rose to power and then fell. The USA is a great nation and a powerful influence on the world and to create peace we need to start at home and stop the red vs. blue game. That's what this article is. It's ones person opinion to spark hate towards a political figure that they don't like probably because he is a republican. Where is your article about Obama going on the view rather then meeting Israel's PM or continuing to take care of the Libya issue???? Even then he said they didn't have enough information to say if it was a terrorist attack and that it was sparked by a video… He's the president he should have known at that point. If he truly didn't then he needs to fix the FBI and the CIA, because our commander in chief should be the first person to have all the details. That's a bigger story then Chris Christie going on SNL.

  • kestrel27

    You mean all those poor schlubs on the east coast who were totally unprepared for a storm that the Pilgrims would have made it through, even it if it was a Cat 5 and Nor Easter combined. This is the problem with Americans today. They are wussies, dependent on government and not responsible for one aspect of their own lives. Is it any wonder they stupidly re-elect Obama while we have high unemployment, high gas prices, high food prices, etc. The Boomer generation is the biggest bunch of cry babies, feeling they are owed simply because they exist and breathe air. Talk about over indulged wimps! Grow up, take responsibility for your own life, and stop blaming everyone else for your failures.

  • Lee

    As a NJ Shore resident that was affected by this storm I can say our Gov has done a great job.
    The destruction was beyond anyone's imagination. We were lucky. No flooding just power out for days.
    Many other, and I mean thousands,lost everything.
    If going on SNL brings this disaster to everyone's attention that's great.
    Stop running at the mouth and donate/help in anyway you can if you are so concerned.

  • Robert

    Back in the late 1990s an ice storm knocked out power to 250,000 people and brought most all transportation to a halt in the Texas Panhandle for 2 weeks. Those people did not throw tantrums, they dealt with it. They did not whine for federal help, unions did not stand in the way of help and everyone worked together without the need for public crying in front of MSM cameras.

  • MarkS

    I'm a staunch right winger, and would never vote for Christie.
    He's a bully pulpit kind of a guy.
    I agree with a lot of the the things he does in dealing with unions, I really don't like:

    1. The way he talks to people.
    2. The Obama hug. (this is what turned me against him)
    3. The appearance on SNL. (but I guess that's what clown do, clown around).

    I pray we have a viable candidate 4 years from now.

    If the RNC thinks they can nominate Chris Christy and win in 2016, then they might as well start planning the concession speech. We will remember this and we'll put an ad together to damage his candidacy.

  • Gobi

    You know guys, I stopped watching SNL a long time ago. It just ceased being funny after I was seventeen years old.
    Your article is taking umbrage with Governor Christie for appearing on SNL, I assume because he spoke kindly about President Obama during the disaster, then goes on to descry comedy as 'inappropriate' or 'immoral'. My question to content sites like drudge report and sites like front page rag is this, does it provide a sense of moral superiority for defeated pundits of the Neo-Conservative and "Tea Party Conservative" persuasion to browbeat a public person (Gov Christie) for using comedy, albeit unfunny comedy, to attempt to elevate the mood in this country following both a historic winter storm and an awe inspiring election? Does this make you moral? I suggest it does the opposite. The "Right Wing" and its miscreant followers look like so many sore losers with articles like this. Or, if cynicism should prevail, it makes you guys look like the fetus fixated, homo fearing, laughing while the poor die in the streets of sickness and starvation buncha loons you truly are. Like the kind of maniacs who don't think we need paved streets or fire departments. How curious that the side championing "morality" and "bible believing values" also disapproves of Saturday Night Live and caring for the less fortunate in society. Reminds me of Jesus. Oh wait, I've actually read the gospels. Obama reminds me of Jesus.

    What a bunch of hypocrites you all are.

    Our country is and has been in deep financial trouble and Obama has been on every stupid talk show, attended galas with the rich Hollywood elite, golfed, played basketball all while he could have been helping solve the crisis which we all will face soon enough.

    Where was your faux outrage then? Maybe you all see Christie as a future threat to your power. Why not start destroying him now.

    People need to wake up and see how they are being manipulated by power hungry ideologues. You are all being sold to, like bad TV commercials until it is second nature to believe a particular point of view.

    Soon, the "bad" people limiting your freedom, threatening rights of free expression and speech will be you.

  • WashingtnReport

    We learned from Hurricane Katrina that the person in charge during an event such as a storm is the President…not a Governor. Anyone recall the media or anyone else holding LA Governor, Blanco, or Mayor Nagin responsible for a federal disaster?

    No!

    The President controls FEMA, not Christie. Obama did drop by for a couple photo-ops, but three weeks later the victims are still hurting. New Orleans residents went through a bad time, but at least the temps were not freezing.

    Obama is once again…….. missing in action.

    • Cassie G

      Truth be told, this story is a diversion from the truth leaking out about the coup, cover up, and last several rigged elections. Know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled last year? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate or chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Sarah Palin wasn’t in this last race because too many people learned why she was planted in the first race. Americans have lost democracy, freedom of press, and free speech is being trampled now by government posted propaganda. Learn what the media is blacked out from reporting on. This last election, and all other Obama cover ups, are exposed at PalinsDirtyLittleSecret. Search it, see the proof, and judge for yourself.

      And you bozos fell for the photo op, and put him back in the White House to continue the dismantling of the country. You own it now.

      They (Blanco and Nagin) were not held responsible because both were Democrats, I was there working and heard and saw things that Nagin and Blanco both did that turned my stomach, but the media just overlooked that, but let GW mispronouce a single workd and they were all over him….But still Christie should not have gone on a comedy show when people in his state are hurting and trying to get back on their feet folowing this disaster.

    After Katrina I got the impression the hurricanes were Bush’s fault, so why pick on Christie for what is clearly not his responsibility. One more thing is that this storm that started off the African coast and then picked up steam in Latin American waters is clearly illegal and should not have be allowed on U.S. soil.

    So exactly what was he to be doing at 11:30pm on Saturday night that he was ignoring? Grow up.

  • RoamNGnome

    Everyone needs to step back a step or two and take a deep breath here. So the man took a break to make a few people laugh. They call it Saturday Night “LIVE” for a reason. It was 11:30PM in New Jersey. What does anyone expect to be done in the dead of night? Certainly can’t do anything in the destroyed areas of the shore. Christie has been in the middle of this before the storm hit. Certainly has been more visible than those morons Naggin and Blanco were after Katrina, that’s for sure. As the CEO of New Jersey, he’s been boots on the ground right along. What most of us do not see are the hours he’s been here, there and everywhere trying to help as many as he can. It’s been three weeks since the storm hit. I wonder how much time he’s spent with his own family in the last four weeks what with initial storm preparation and then the response after the storm had passed. I’m sure a lot less than most people. It was like when “Snow-mageddon” hit the East Coast three years ago. Christie was in Florida. Who in their right mind thought that Christie was going to be driving a plow truck anyway? Sorry Gov, but he probably couldn’t fit behind the wheel of one.
    He’s doing what he was elected to do; be the best decision maker and leader he could be and try to aid as many as he could as quickly as he could. He’s been securing help from all over the country (including the Federal Leviathan called FEMA which is a bureaucratic monstrosity in and of itself to deal with) and best deciding where to deploy the assets he has at his disposal. And he has certainly performed better than his predecessor would have, that I’ll guarantee. Corzine couldn’t have figured out how to get himself out of a wet paper bag.
    If Christie is going to do anything, he needs to honestly find out what has gone wrong with the utility companies responses and overhaul them where necessary. And my best suggestion to all those detractors and nay sayers, next year YOU run against him and let’s see how well you could do under identical circumstances.

    This article is unbelievably bitter, petty, and pathetic. You're grasping at straws to take down Christie after his Obama comments. Spending a few minutes on a TV show 19 days after the storm hit is not a problem. Christie has handled the storm very well for this state.

  • http://smallthoughtsfromasmallmind.wordpress.com/ Small Thoughts

    What a stupid non-story. Is Christie supposed to spend his time wringing his hands dressed in rags to show his concern? Or maybe he should find a telephone pole and string a wire as a meaningless gesture. There are plenty of substantive things to criticize Christie about. Why waste time on stupid things like a SNL appearance?

  • Jason Burnstein

    Watch this fat turd of a Governor fiddle while Rome burns. He has no sympathy for anyone, just an ego as fat as he is. He froze the retired state and local teachers, cop's and firemen's pensions by eliminating the cost of living (COLA) annual increases which were a mere 2 to 3 % , allowing pensioners to keep up with inflation. Several of the previous Governor's in NJ including Fat Boy raided the pension system money and squandered it on other programs, That pension system money was invested by the workers contributions. How fair is that of Fat Boy ?

Obama blows into town with his media posse, trips on a couple of 2 x 4's, shoots down to Vegas as quick as he got here, Just to attend a party and you all kiss his a$$. Christie still has to deal with the disaster. Obama walks away and you sheep are still praising his empty suit.. He's done absolutely zero for storm victims, yet you rode Bush for 3 years because he wasn't a liberal. Wake the f up.

    Disagree completely with the author and most of the comments.

    The fact that Christie is a figure noteworthy enough to make SNL shows how being an effective politician in times of trouble (unlike say the local government in New Orleans during Katrina) is something to aspire to. He's worked hard and there is no evidence to show that showing up on SNL several weeks after the storm, prevented anyone from getting their lights on. He did more good for NJ by being on the show than declining the invitition.

    Please attack politicians when they deserve it, there are plenty of opportunities :) It just requires a little more investigative reporting (although I think that may have died about 1998). Please bring it back.

    Geez louise, people, it seems like everyone has a twist in their panties over this! I have found that humor in the midst of tragedy is one of the best ways to begin healing! I was in the floods in the Napa Valley in 1986. I was in the earthquake in LA in 1971. I helped at a relief camp in Mississippi after Katrina. I've had to evacuate due to fires where I live now. I've had my share of tragedy.

    I worked at a relief camp in Mississippi 6 weeks after Katrina hit. The people there were amazing. They were resilient. . Sure they were hurting. They were so quick with a joke and ready to laugh. They knew that having a sense of humor is what kept them sane during those difficult times.

    Laughter produces endorphins. Endorphins make you happier and able to be clear headed and deal with situations better. Many counselors and therapists will tell you that having a good sense of humor will help you cope in difficult situations.

    So leave Christie alone. I have lots of friends from Jersey who thought his stint on SNL was funny. Honestly, if you want to get mad at someone, get mad at Obama. He's ruined this country with his failed policies. Or get mad at the idiots who re-elected him!

    This is all about Free Speech. After all the gov’t (and their corporate cronies) censor the media and ban books like “America Deceived II”.

  • Edward R Boothe

    His fat ass put Obama back in the White House. He needs to get out of the Republican party.

  • Edward Boothe

    I tried to email him and to call him and he had both shut down.

  • Barnyzzz

    I heard that Governor Christie immediately collapsed when he heard that Hostess was shutting down….I wonder why ??

  • hulk

    Why is this the Governor's problem & not obama's? As we all remember, the governor of Lousiana & the mayor of new orleans shared no responsibility for poor response to the Katrina disaster? That was all George Bush's fault. Yet Sandy is all the governor's fault. This story & the reader comments are just so disingenuous. Or are you really that dumb?

  • Paul

    Lighten up America! It was 11:30pm on a Saturday night! What do you want him to do at that time, man the soup kitchen? A little comedy goes a long way. Sure is funny how you can blast Christie, but when it comes to other Politicians yakking it up with Leno, Letterman or the gals on The View, instead of meeting with foreign dignitaries, you give a pass. Get real !

  • Scott

    I cant speak very intellegently on the SNL skit as I dont watch. However, I have the following thoughts.

    If Christie was doing this in any demeaning or mocking way, then shame on him. However, from what I know of Mr. Christie, I seem to doubt that is the case, but rather this was an attempt to keep the victims of Sandy in the nations mind in order to help the country through this. That to me would be commendable.

    Additionaly, I think that one thing has gotten overlooked in all of this. It is personal responsabililty. While this storm was horrible, it did not arrive without prior warning. I recall hearing for days that this storm would hit and be bad. I recall it being toted as "Superstorm Sandy" before it happened. If a resident chooses to stay and ride such a storm out, that is your choice. However, you must understand that your choice does have consequences. If you wish to stay, then it is your persontal responsability to ensure you can take care of yourself until things are back to 'normal'.

    I get so tired of hearing people do what they want, and then scream of injustices because no one will come and 'save them' exactly when they want to be saved.

  • Amy

    These are the same whining morons who voted for a second term for Oboomba. He did not help the Americans who were murdered in Libya while they begged for help, what makes them think he will help them from Sandy destruction? Meanwhile their cowardly hero takes another trip out of town to Taiwan instead of taking charge of a disaster. Typical of Oboomba, leave town when trouble comes to the masses.
    Luke ”The Drifter” says :
    “We Americans got so tired of being thought of as dumbasses by the rest of the world that we went to the polls this November and removed all doubt.”

  • T Johnston

    Honestly, this story is a diversion from the truth leaking out about the coup, cover up, and last several rigged elections. Know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled last year? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate or chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Sarah Palin wasn’t in this last race because too many people learned why she was planted in the first race. Americans have lost democracy, freedom of press, and free speech is being trampled now by government posted propaganda. Learn what the media is blacked out from reporting on. This last election, and all other Obama cover ups, are exposed at PalinsDirtyLittleSecret. Search it, see the proof, and judge for yourself.

  • Jumanjii

    This writer is an idiot. Christie KILLED it during this disaster. Was way ahead of any other politiician in ANY other state, taking care of his residents. He held JCP&L and PSE&G accountable for EVERYTHING. He was ACTUALLY out helping, not like Obama's fly by or Bloomberg's defiance in wanting to keep the marathon going. It's funny how AFTER this resident got power, after I did mind you, that this report goes our nearly a full week. If Christie wants to go on Leno, SNL, Conan, who gives a S***. He still provided more support, information and comfort than the looser in chief, BLOOMY or Cuomo. I say thumbs up to man. And for all you weak minded liberal turds who only attack his weight, you sir(s) are bafoons.

  • EllieEnlightened

    Yea his is just like his good old buddy Obama. Two losers.

  • jstop88

    So, it is terrible when Christie does it – but not Obama? Give me a break.

  • Jada

    U people r unbelievable.

  • Matt

    Christie has fallen into the same trap that so many Republicans have in the past. Does he realize that all of this "love" he's getting now from the main stream press is because he's a "useful idiot"?
    Ah, can't wait until they don't need him anymore and the fat jokes come rolling back out.
    Chis, your political career ends at Governor of New Jersey…………you're dead to us.

  • Ben

    I'd like the author of this extremely partisan article to write about Obama, Holder, or Clinton. Christie is a great governor and has worked hard in the wake of the storm. Maybe an article on Obama's hundred rounds of golf, or his late night comedy shows..

  • Todd

    It’s all BS, the author of this article, Chris Christie, Obama and the liberal media! It’s time for Americans to awaken from their political affiliation hypnosis! Sure there are some well meaning Democrats and Republicans, but they are either new and yet to be corrupted or silenced by the media, in either case there are very few. I admit I am a former Republican come Libertarian, it’s time to get back to the only tie that binds, the constitution! We should take the risk of maximizing freedom and throw these selfish fools out of their cushy jobs, lifetime retirement pay and perfect health insurance!

  • Kdub

    And no one sees an issue with the PRESIDENT appearing on every late night show on television???? Let's be real folks.

  • JoeLynda

    Lardass Christie turned traitor and is showing his leftist colors. Watch for him to change parties since he is toast as a Republican.

  • AmericaVsDemocRats

    The FAT FOCK Gweedo can go eFF himselves…
    All of him is a political wasteland.

  • FatPig

    This guy looks like……..the Aliens in the beginning of the movie……..Can't remember name…….Bruce Willis is a cab driver (Flyer) in the future, and some red head and some Stones.

  • Carol

    Just wait until the tub of lard starts visiting the white house. He's just like Obama, only ten times as fat, he parties while people suffer.

  • hunter

    Slamming Christie is just another example of the cultural tradition of Republicans to form circular firing squads.
    From all acounts, Gov. Christie has been a very effective governor in a very tough state.
    He has applied, successfully, sweeping Conservative reforms on unions and govt. spending.
    I would suggest that the attacks on him from self-identified conservaitves tells more about the attakcers than anything about Gov. Christie.

  • Bhopx

    The storm was 3 weeks ago. The guy can't go on a comedy program? The vast majority of people have resumed their normal lives by now.

  • Judge Judy

    He's toast.

  • George Adams

    Governor Christy has lost it all! He drops all support of Romney and makes all attempts to get on Obama's bandwagon. Now, he makes light of what is going on on the SNL, which has shown to have no taste and maturity at all lately. Christy was riding the GOP Presidential candidacy and has fallen to the position of one of Obama's "pet politicians". Christy will lose big time next election.

  • john west

    Anyone who is that fat, is either a clown or is Michael Moore. Christie blew it when he blew Obama.

  • Jim

    A quote from Stripes…."lighten up Melvin" It is people like you who are exactly the reason why the Republicans continue to lose elections. Don't you people realize that most of America, and the majority of the republicans, are more like Christie. We should only hope he gets the nomination in 2016 or we are doomed to 2012 all over again… Don't you learn?

  • ChristieFan

    This is a hit piece, plain and simple. I 'm glad Christie went on and made light of the current situation. If you don't laugh, you'll cry. But It's okay for Obama to go on The View, Letterman, Leno, Jon Stewart etc numerous times, oh, that makes him cool? Christie does it to get attention for him and for the state, it's bad? As far as Christie praising Obama, if it gets the residents of NJ what they need in federal dollars, I am all for it. Christie did a spectacular job, so what if he takes 1hr to do SNL? Obama is leader of the free world, what is it okay for him to do the talk show circuit? You people are a bunch of hacks and the author of this hit piece should focus on something that actually matters.

  • Snad

    That Obama hookup is already starting to pay off.

  • jimmy

    Lighten up, people…… there is a world outside of the borders of New Jersey, as much as you personally don't think so

  • snowflake

    Obama campaigns and parties, interviews wih pimp with limp while FOUR Americans beg for their lives! Obama does late night ENTERTAINMENTwhile NY, NJ Reidents suffer. Obama goes on vacation and plays golf amost every two weeks, while Americans suffer with NO JOBS!

  • Dee

    Jersey should just be thanking their lucky stars Kathleen Blanco isn't their governor right now. She did such a bang up job during Katrina along with Chocolate City Nagan. Both 100% Liberals that Bush had to come in and save from themselves. If Sandy would have been a Katrina then the N.E. would know what being fubared is really all about. But really all you states that blindly vote for liberals all the time where is your damnation of those politicians and their lack of action? What happened to this was not time for politics? Hmmmmmm. Never let a serious crisis go to waste after all right libbys?

  • Guest

    Give the guy a break. He didn't cost us the election.

  • NJStrong

    Don't Worry about the facts…Click on the link titled "at a time when New Jersey residents still need help" it takes you to a story that was posted on 11.12.12 at 10:55 AM, is SATURDAY night LIVE now filed on MONDAY'S?? The link behind "got people from Louisiana and North Carolina " takes you to a story posted on 11.11.12 at 9:00 AM nearly a week before my Governor went on SNL. Sure if Gov. Christie went on SNL last we then this story would be warranted by when he went on SNL. But the truth is that when Gov. Christie went on SNL ALL power lost during Hurricane Sandy had been restored by the Friday before with the exceptions being the some of the Barrier Island where the homes have been taken off the there foundation or are gone (http://readynj.posterous.com/). In large part due to the LEADERSHIP displayed by my Governor with the help of the President of the United States and the hard work power company workers from all over the country power was restored FASTER then many other disasters (http://www.oregonlive.com/today/index.ssf/2012/11/time_taken_by_utilities_to_res.html).

  • Rollo

    The entire Royal Class of the Republic here in America are all tonedeaf.

  • BLock

    I don't think it's really Governor Christy. I think he may have been replaced by a "pod person" as he slept. He looks just the same, but something's definitely different.

  • Paleoconservative

    I thought Christie was a brain dead Dumbo Moochercrat. Shame on him, let's expel this giant turd from the GOP.

  • Joan's Webache

    I think we expect too much from our politicians. Theya re all compelely self-involved, thats a pre-requisite for the job. yes, I believe it is in bad taste to come across like a clown when your constituens are still in distress. I just don't see why there needs to be such an uproar. he is not the first to make a bad decision and he won't be the last. Just wait, someone will have anotehr affair or come out of the closet. We'll forget about Christie in no time.

  • http://twitter.com/barizzio @barizzio

    What a buffoon. He is the Republican version of Joe Biden.

  • Jack Kennedy

    MORE BREAD AND CIRCUS. The sheeple are realizing they've been flocked. I hope you' all are well stocked with can food and ammo, WWIII and the total social collapse is imminent.

  • Mushmouth Jones

    End the Federal government as we know it, return it to the limited powers of 1783. Return all power to local counties and states. But no, we will have to do it the hard way and live through a collapse of the government by the weight of it's debts.

  • lynda

    Christy probably made a commmitment long ago to be on the show….I seriously doubt he would do anything to diminish the needs of the people of New Jersey…….Where's Obimbo???? his first concern should be the people of the states affected by Sandy and he goes golfing….Don't event hink Christy isn't concerned about his state

  • frustrated guest

    Funny, I didn't read any critical commentary about Obama jumping on a plane to Vegas to campaign after 4 Americans were killed on 9/11/2012. The double standard is so disgusting with the left leaning liberal media.

    Chris Christie is the best Governor NJ has had in DECADES. He is a true leader which is greatly lacking in most politicians these days, (includign our own Pres.) The SNL skit was hilarious and shows he has even more charisma than I thought.

    And to the people that continue to rip on his weight? You are all hypocrites. I'm sure you're the same peace-loving Obama liberals who take cues from the MSM and are selectively offended at random social issues — but you still have the b@lls to make fun of someone's weight??!? Sad.

    What goes around comes around and I hope it comes back to y'all 10 times worse.

  • Bobbie Sue

    Why are you surprised at Christie’s SNL appearance? After all, he said Obama was an outstanding president. Should’ve known he had poor judgment.

  • Matt Drudge

    ahh, this is one of those get fat and watch Fox News because my brain doesn't work sites.

  • David Miller

    Apparently Saturday Night Live is much more important to Christy than saying the country from Barry Obama and the leaders of the democratic party ( George Soros included). This governor, whom I once took as a possible serious candidate for President of the US is now relegated to being a bad joke. I hope he finds happiness in television.

  • tim

    I love to see all the whiners, still whining about losing the election.

  • Jdenton

    I am a life long Republican and I can assure Governor Fat Boy that he will never get a dime from me when he runs in 2016 for President.

  • SGK

    Hit piece! Do something useful.

  • dam

    On the bright side, if they didn't have power, they didn't have to watch him.

  • otto

    It was OK as long as the Governor was providing Obama a positive platform for exposure just days before the election but now that is behind us it is time to muddy up the Governor to prepare for the election — Cory Booker will be running and the better job the press and bloggers do demonizing Christi the better it will be for the Dems. IMO most of these negative replies are lies.

  • Skiff Izlaan

    Does this means that you all are gonna call Gov Christie an Obama Voter???

  • RAIDER

    stick a fork in him-HE IS DONE~~

  • Kathy

    Screw you christy, you blew it. Run as a dem or let it go because you blew it big time. We won't forget.

  • Ooooooya

    I don't care. I'm just glad Romney isn't president. If Christie helped stop that, good for him!

    • Mary Sue

      You're going to wish he was in oh, about 4 years.

  • cheryl scheuerman

    Why did Obama get a free pass when he went to Vegas and other events when he let people be murdered in Benghazi so he could save face and still deny that we don't have Al Queda on the run. AND HE lied about it. Damn media.

  • David Martin

    I'm not saying it was a great move but I just hope that those who are blasting Christy were also condemning Obama for going on Leno, Letterman, The View, MTV, Jon Stewart and all around yucking it up during Benghazi, the UN general session and the rest of the world's turmoil at the time.

  • feh

    Criminy sakes….chill out people! What time is Saturday Night Live on?…ummm, 11:30 PM. Christie probably would have been in bed watching SNL and instead he was on it. I think that Christie has the capability to handle more than one thing at once and he deserves a little fun time and he has proven that he can poke fun at himself. Ya'll are just miffed that he actually was agreeable to working with Obama. Grow up!!!

  • JBar595

    With Hostess going out of business, Christie will be down to 180 in a month.

  • jean

    so he went on a comedy show to gain nationwide attention to the disaster in NJ? tThere are different venues for that and he could have got the message out to more serious viewers. He's a buffoon and worse–a caboose kisser . Or maybe just a caboose.

  • trueNJ

    Uhm, those quotes from Rahway are very old, for example, 13 days without power? how did they go 7 days immediately after the storm with power than lose it for 2 weeks? This article is misleading and the ignorance of people who read articles like this without a grain of salt are frustrating for people who know what they are talking about

  • http://twitter.com/pspinn2 @pspinn2

    I can see it now: 2016 Christy changes party to Democrat and hits the "Late Night" circuit!

    • http://twitter.com/pspinn2 @pspinn2

      Sorry, that's Christie!

  • mlr

    Looks like Obamism is rubbing off on christie…. PressLimeItis is what I think they call the disease…

  • 4Freedom2012nBeyond

    He's inspirational, don't hate. "a broken spirit" is not what we want in a leader. Read the Bible.
