Hurricane Sandy, come join the club! Oh lucky us. We are seeing fighting everywhere! Scarcity of resources including food, candles, heat, gasoline, as a result of Sandy, has brought out our most base actions. Women are fighting over a can of cream of mushroom soup. Guys have yanked each other from cars if they try to cut a gas line. On the political front the fighting is also base.

Nationwide we see an array of “fight speeches”. I’m going to fight to preserve Medicare, I’m going to fight to create more jobs in the US, I’m going to fight, fight, fight!” Fight to take back the Senate! Fight to take back the House! Fight for America’s middle class! Two billion dollars spent on advertising and fight promotion for the presidential race alone!

With all this fighting, it was rather stunning for both Chris Christie and Mayor Bloomberg to sing the praises of President Obama. Was it conspiracy that prompted the words of support?  (e.g. no FEMA money unless?) We wonder whether the Bloomberg endorsement and the Christie appreciation tour will tip the scales in favor of the President. In either event, I just want to thank Beijing for lending the USA the FEMA money so that I can get a new roof.

As a NJ Republican activist, I was very surprised to see Christie give Obama the perfect photo-op… another Noble Prize, glory without lifting a finger. Why would Christie do this? I think that there has been a pattern in his political management of constantly kissing the Democrats in order to continue his “bi-partisan” credentials. This was nothing more than Christie trying to buy the love of NJ Dems by kissing up to Obama. Will it buy love for his re-election next year? I doubt it.
