More Stupidity in Action

“Obama’s making these phone calls, looking for somebody to play the role of a Greek column today, and he found Gov. Christie to do it.  Christie’s the only Republican not just praising Obama . . . 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.”

– Rush Limbaugh on his radio show, condemning Chris Christie for working with President Obama on the Hurricane Sandy aftermath.

This is the downside of free speech: anyone with a microphone, computer or bullhorn can say just about anything they want – no matter how blatantly asinine.

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.
