Statesmanship in Action

“The president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit.  He gave me his number at the White House and told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it.  It’s been very good working with the president and his administration.  It’s been wonderful.”

– New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, praising President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy Tuesday morning.

Abrasive and controversial, Christie doesn’t offer quaint platitudes, which makes him a favorite of the Republican Party.  But, during times of crisis, politics has no place.
