Barack Obama and Governor Chris Christie took a brotherly tour of New Jersey yesterday, each praising the others' leadership as they surveyed damage in the state. But why the sudden comity?
Why doesn't Chris Christie reject federal aid in lieu of Mitt Romney's canned garbanzo beans from Ohio? Or criticize the president for failing to appoint a horse judge as FEMA director? Or invite Paul Ryan into the state to cleanup all the debris that has already been cleared by DPW workers, like a real conservative leader?
It could be that Christie actually cares about the state he governs, though Rush Limbaugh has an alternate explanation…

It's really a shame. Insert Candidate Here came so close! Insert Candidate Here was totally going to win this thing. But then Hurricane Sandy came along and Insert Unlikely Though Imaginative Rationalization Here , and now we're all going to have to deal with four years of Insert Dubious Straw Man Belief About Opponent's Policies Here.
This is truly a sad day for America…
Given how close this election is, it won’t be surprising if the losing side ends up blaming Sandy, whether it’s fair or not. You could argue that Sandy has both elevated the president and stopped the momentum narrative for Romney. But you could also contend that Sandy has kept the president off the campaign trail for at least three days.
Just like Kerry partisans blamed bin Laden video in ’04, Bush folks blamed the DUI story in ’00 and McCain folks blamed Lehman collapse in ’08, Sandy will get the blame from the losing side, period.
I don't care what the polls say. Insert Other Candidate Here is not my president because Insert Nonsensical Xenophobic Conspiracy Theory Here .

Okay, this time she has just gone too far…
First Lady Michelle Obama took to Twitter on Tuesday to express her sympathy for those affected by superstorm Sandy.
"To everyone affected by the hurricane, Barack and my thoughts continue to be with you and your families today, and please stay safe. –mo," she tweeted.
First she wants us eat more healthily, and now she wants us to "stay safe"? I am just sick to death of this nanny state big government meddling.
I'll tell you what. I'm gonna go play with a downed power line. And I'd like to see Michelle Obama try to stop me. Love it or leave it!
