In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie joined forces to help that state recover. Christie then made some news when he appeared on Fox & Friends and the Three Trogs that host that show asked him if he would pretty please have a photo op with Mittington Romney around the devastated areas in his state because it's election season and Christie is a Republican and Romney needs to get in on some hot pictures of homes under water and dead-people action.
The governor said: "I don't know, nor do I care. I've got a job to do here in New Jersey that's bigger than presidential politics. And I could care less about any of that stuff. I've got 2.4 million people without power, I have devastation on the shore... If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me."
Steve Doocy's face said: "Heavens to murgatroyd! How ruuude!"
Christie also dared to praise Obama for his hard work. ON FOX! ZOMG!
Well, good ol' pill-poppin' conservative radio
blowfish blowhard Rush Limbaugh didn't like Christie's suddenly being BFFs with Obummer and went on his show and called the Republican governor "fat" and a "fool," thus breaking the IRONY THRESHOLD and imploding all space and time. He also said people shouldn't listen to Christie because of The Gay.
"He's fat and a fool. Don't listen to Governor Christie. He doesn't know what he's talking about... Christie's the only Republican not just praising Obama, it's a -- let's just put it this way. Is it wrong for one man to love another man? But that man love out there is isolated in the state of New Jersey."
Man love. HA. HA. HA. Get it? Because of butt sex with men. VOTE ROMNEY!
Christie was a keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention and, up until Sandy slammed into New Jersey, one of the most vocal critics of Obama's "lack of leadership."
Yet, now when real-life shit hits the fan and Christie gets to step away from the echo chamber and see real life and people suffering, he gets it. Obama acted swiftly and decisively, New Jersey is getting that dreaded government aid! and Rush and the Conservatards are losing their shit over it.
Meanwhile, Romney held a fake food drive for Sandy victims in the devastated region of Ohio and has been up and down on his stance on FEMA more times than Lindsey Lohan at Club Liv.
Keep on trollin', Rush.
