[joseph p. hildebrandt] - Maybe it's because it's a given that you're a Democrat parading around as a Republican.
[evelyn york] - Be quiet Joseph...no one asked cause no one cared. He was there to help everyone!!! BEST man we've had in a very long time!!
[tom ferris] - Who gives a crap !!!
[janet carp] - That's because they knew you were a RINO.
[tom ferris] - You just suck !!
[annmarie gualberto] - We already know your a republicrat- disappointing
[debbie uí briain] - Roxbury is a devastated town... Man made by our state government and you have yet to "show up" or even acknowledge.
[brian p slattery] - wow, really Joseph Hildebrandt? Your comment is one of the biggest reasons this nation is in such crappy shape... you're more concerned about political affiliation and party ideology than you are with what is truly important, which is that the governor is doing the job that they are elected to do, regardless of party/ideology...
[bill ruane] - I am a Christie Republican.
[sparky donald] - a politician that balances budgets...cuts taxes...puts unions in their place.....lowers unemployment....and supports a strong national defense is a rock solid Republican in my book
[kevin hannaford] - don't matter,,, once you appointed that muzzie to the superior court everybody stopped caring about you
[bobby smith] - I'm thinking Gov. Christie might make a decent President even if he is a Republican. He is able to think outside the box, which is something we have been missing since at least Clinton. It seems to me a LOT of independents, moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats might support him in 2016.
[nathan f. cox] - and when you should up in washinton I hope you carry the same spirit. 2016 my friend.
[venkatesh les paul] - lol you polarized folk sure make an entertaining bunch but it's too bad you guys have yet to just wipe each other out with your barbarism
[mark lacari] - I hope Christie runs for President in 2016.
[ray hollis] - Im sure no one asked you if you wanted a donut either. Keep pushing the one-party system and a dictatorship. The producers are fleeing NJ in droves.
[bernadette prinz] - Those who considered you a Republican were confused when you schmoozed with Obama.
[jeff west] - The great thing about Christie is that he doesn't have to play partisan politics all the time. Superstorm Sandy and recovery was not a partisan issue -- it was about helping those who were affected. Would Barbara Buono have partnered with the other side of the aisle to get things done? Doubtful, as she's done nothing but blame "climate change" (what happened to global warming?) for the storm and bashed Christie for partisan reasons.
[gavin gop] - That is because you are the Governor and your duty is to the people of New Jersey --- politics are irrlevant in times like those ----
[glenn ballard] - I like Governor Christie, and hope he runs for President. As a Westerner, though, I have one strong suggestion: Support the Second Amendment.
[jonathan kay] - Obviously people like Janet are the reason why this country has so many problems.
[joseph p. hildebrandt] - Evelyn, YOU be quiet! Christie will NEVER be President! America is bigger than the Blue NorthEast..and the rest of America won't forget how he embraced Obama and bashes the party he claims to be a member of every chance he gets! And if you don't understand that simple principal, Brian Slattery, maybe you'll understand this... $24 million to hold a special election three weeks before the General election because your Governor is to wishy washy to make a decision....how many teachers or police could have been hired with that money? Or property tax relief?? See Brian, THAT'S the problem with America today...now do you understand?? But go ahead and suck up to Christie...2016...yeah right!
[brian mcdowell] - The people of New Jersey didn't have to ask. They knew you weren't a real Republican.
[janet carp] - @Jonathon, no, the problem is uninformed voters only looking for handouts that too many politicians are willing to give in exchange for votes!
[carol hastings] - I love you Chris Christie!!!!
[randy feldman] - That's because everyone knows you're a lying scumbag.
[jen gabbard] - You are the best Christie. You always put the People first. And the high poll numbers you have bare this out.:)
[jonathan kay] - Anyone who thinks CC shmoozed with Obama is a moron. The state was DEVASTATED in the wake of the super storm and CC got up to the plate and did what he had to do the help the people of NJ. PEOPLE FIRST POLITICS SECOND.
[s cory collins] - Yeh they probably just said don't take my food. bada-Ching...
[brock pinelli] - OK, I'll bite. Are you a Republican or a Democrat?
[melissa ballan] - I'm a die hard Dem and I find Gov Christie Sexy...
[janet carp] - @Brock, that's priceless! LOL!
[joshua allen moore] - It shouldn't matter about the political party it should matter what the person stands for & what they does for their community.Chris Christie 2016
[maxine kreider] - Gov Christie owes no one an answer to totally whacky people. Gov Christie did his job as Gov of NJ not a pet GOP spokesman.
[laura garcia-anderson] - I like Chris Christie and I like Cory Booker, they would make a fantastic team. They are great men first, Republican and Democrat second
[mickey morgan] - It's been getting hard for the rest of us to tell if you're a Republican or a Democrat also.
[virginia dare morris] - I'm sure Governor Christie can sleep at night knowing he does the best for the people in NJ. It's not because of party affiliation, it is because he is a Christian---doing what Christians are supposed to do: take care of others. Come on down to NC! I don't miss paying your state's crappy property taxes and car insurance one bit.
[ken ro] - how does someone who is apolitical fight against radical leftists like chuck schumer, dick durbin, barbara boxer, and sheila jackson lee? its nice to say you are above parties, but the problem is moderates like mccain romney and dole didnt overcome the moniker of moderate enought to win.. this is not about liberalism lite ie letting govt get bigger slower.. keep ridin that fence pal.
[jeff muller] - I admire Christie's boldness, but I wish he'd take another look at the platform he ran on. I don't want partisan politics, but you have to acknowledge the failures of progressive politics and policy in order to make a difference. Obama and the Democrats have been failing the American people for 100 years. Republicans have also failed America by not sticking to the principles in their platform. The Tea Party is what Republicans should be, but they're more like Democrats.
[irene euler] - Yeah what Laura Garcia said !!!
[kisha irane] - ^I would love for them to run for the Presidency.
[randy thompson] - no one asked cuz we already knew you were a RINO leaning more left
[mike lindsey] - yep. they just ask if you have them any of that federal money
[chris donohoe] - A lot of Democrats didn't care that Reagan was a Conservative Republican. He never gave up on his own principles and values or capitulate for his own political gain to the extent of causing his party great concern.
[scott smith] - At least a detractor spelled RINO correctly.
[zorach m spira] - Of course not! They knew you were bringing the goodies. That's why the libs get the votes of they people they pay off.
[mike simko] - They were scared to ask you anything at all because they've seen what you act like at your press conferences and town halls.
[ronnie elling] - and they should not , but you come off as a dem. you try to take away freedom from you state . WHY? you my friend are just for show ,you are a pound for your Obama right . you have done all he want's . and that is to take away FREEDOM I would like for you to stand in frount of our men and women that are fighting for our FREEDOM and tell them the can not have a gun or so forth , but you are only good anough to go get killed , beacuse you and the obama group are taking away the FREEDOM they fight for ., you and obama are very sad people , very sad, you all need to stand up for our men and women that fight for our FREEDOM that our oh so gret leader is tring to start more wars where evr he goes . sad
[jessica land] - Hey Chris who cares what you have to say. Put a sock in it.
Governor Chris Christie: Governor Christie: "When I showed up in a devastated town in New Jersey, I can tell you this: n - 50th Comments
[urgel santos] - Governor Christie is # One Governor in United States no matter Republican or a Democrat. This is not a government that sits back and waits for things to happen.
[jem kiepper] - We know. Pretty confusing for Americans who were conservatives. Did all your cozy conversations get you more help from Washington no way in hell. You just became a political pawn at the mercy of Obama who lied as per his usual. Hopefully a lesson learned he doesn't care about you or NJ.
[chris donohoe] - Can Gov Christie take a ride over to the IRS building in his state and find out how equal Republicans and Democrats are being treated by his butt buddy Obama.
[robbie brown] - well said Governor
[anastasia khramova] - We all know your'e a Republican! ha ha! :)
[john p. eperjesi] - They all know you're a RINO-DIP. You have shown your real politics.
[michael bellew] - Try as he may to make an honest statement, there's never a lack for smart-aleck answers.
[leo bankowski] - If he outright supports the Second Amendment, he is a Shoe in in 2016
[dorit goikhman] - very happy to see the cooperation across party lines ! I'd love to see a little bit of a more rational approach on social issues like decriminalization of marijuana and marriage equality. I myself have left the republican party and now generally vote libertarian. There are many fiscal conservatives, social liberals who are fed up with having to vote for the lesser of two evils.
[mary ann noto louw] - You tell them GOV the wacko left and the wacko right will keep with their out of touch comments. But the moderate majority is behind you!
[ryan baldwin] - I wouldn't be opposed to voting for a Republican if it weren't for the numerous morons parading around saying they are Republicans but are just in fact, puppets for major corporations and churches.
[michelle blair- ronan] - I normally like Gov. Christie. I think he is making some tough cuts in the budget, and the people who are affected usually get in an uproar. I have been personally affected by some of those cuts, and I am okay with it. I understand that government spending is out of control. However, PLEASE stop lowering the flag every time a celebrity dies. It is disrespectful of the true hero's who deserve that honor!!
[gautam sethi] - Well said, Dorit!
[chris donohoe] - Mary Ann we are with him to as conservatives, but its like the ad with President Lincoln and the beaver that states "we just want you back."
[bill kent] - Well said Mr. Governor! I only wish you could be in Ohio! This country needs more people like you in charge!
[bill kent] - Ronald Regan would be proud of you!!
[chris donohoe] - Bill, Ronald Reagan Left the Democrat party as a Conservative. Gov Christie is moving towards the Democrat party for what reason?
[christine eastlack-johnston] - Gov. Christie is moving towards the welfare of the people, not any political party.
[florence bundick hill] - Gov. Is the best,he is trying to straighten all the problems of our state and there are plenty of them. I think he is doing good for our state and I think he is a great Gov. And hopefully he will run for president. He has my vote.
[diane rotella] - Great words and the way a true leader should react. Very proud of our governor. He is truly dedicated to his state and the people. So proud to have someone who is doing the right thing for New Jersey.
[greg picard] - nice knowing you actually care about people, I was in Cabo San Lucas when it hit the east coast, not really a relaxing vacation for me Chris.
[jan bowden-marchand] - Love this man and his no-nonsense approach!!
[brad sklover] - He laughs in your face jessica
[ivan john d. sopko] - It ain't easy bein Red in a very Blue state.
[glen garnett] - Speaking the truth!!!! let's get to work CONGRESS!!!!
[ronnie elling] - yeah he turns blue
[david hulbert] - so they didn't care when you started handing out Obama buttons!!
[melanie rangel] - A politician that's actually doing his job! We need to back Christie, even if he works w/democrats, which I think is a good thing. To the critiques: Did you all forget we have a TWO-party system??? I'm a Conservative Republican and I love Gov. Christie! He's not a RINO like Swartzneggar was because he does not back down where it counts.
[chad tanner] - The question is, do you know if you are a republican or a democrat? My guess, by your actions is that you are confused!!!!
[dan malinowski jr] - because you flip flop!!! You sure are not a CONSERVATIVE!
[kevin neafie] - I like this man!
[helene sutera uborka] - Gov Christie...I am so proud to call you our leader in NJ.....you have take such a NEGATIVE disaster and turned it into a POSITIVE for the people in this state. We have ALOT more to do but with you at the helm...we will ROCK ON!!!!!
[sherman ellen] - good move national speech.
[madge reidenbach healey] - A love a man of his word.
[janet davis] - Why aren't you on vacation with your boyfriend?
[david porzl] - The fact both the republifags and democraps are both ganging up on him in the comments section means he's actually trying to do his job and not cozying up to either side.
[joanna lee] - Your a good man. They are hard to come by.
[karen mcdermott foley] - They knew you were a Democrat at heart because you promised them other people's money then reneged.
[anastasia khramova] - I got my life back after within 4 months after Hurricane Sandy. I still need to get a job after college.
[sheila bridges] - And O can thank you for your support
[ryan jairam] - Governor why are you not acting on the gun control bills on your desk? We want to know where you stand. Are you with us or against us?
[herschel nelson] - They just wanted to know if I brought lots of Donuts !
[patti nearing] - Thank You, Gov. Christie ----- love your way of thinking !!!! Christie in 2016 !!!!
[karla harby] - He talks the talk AND walks the walk. Thank you, Gov!
[rita jacoby tarantino] - Love you Governor Christie!!! You are the best!!!!
[tom baldino] - Well, if you showed up here in Ocean Grove governor, I would ask you why you are seeking publicity photo ops with the president while we were not receiving FEMA funding.
[denise derocker davies] - That's how it should be.
Governor Chris Christie: Governor Christie: "When I showed up in a devastated town in New Jersey, I can tell you this: n - 100th Comments
[rj tucker] - You are right . . . usually people don't care where the help and MONEY are coming from as was evidenced by yourself. You had the name and the power to walk onto the floor of Congress and tell them to get the pork out of that bill and . . . it would have been an E.F. Hutton moment and you know it. They would have listened
[jeff martin] - Could you please tell us, governor, we are having a hard time figuring out which party you actually belong to?
[diane piazza] - Governor, you belong in Washington 2016
[jeffrey murdock] - Its the Company you keep.
[david kramer] - They didn't ask because they know you're a part of the RINO Party, you silly wabbit.
[noreen albright] - Moderation in all things. You need to meet in the middle to make a difference. Ask any mediator if you want a good agreement. Don't vote for radicals (either way) or extremists.
[janet carp] - So Christie's new appointment, Chiesa, starts off with a bang, voting with Democrats on the immigration fiasco! Way to go RINO!
[janet carp] - Hey, Noreen, "moderation in all things" = no real opinions, no heart/soul, uneducated about the subject, boring!
[freeman p. w. bartek] - You rock Governor Christie!
[antonio l merrick] - Governor Christie is my all-time favorite statesman. I would move to New Jersey just to work for him if the property taxes weren’t so high.
[pieter filter] - Why can't you fix the medical marijuana program from your big government perstering that causes my relative to not be able to get cannabis for his chemo? What can possibly justify causing his suffering?
[amy kochan hemming] - Is this how politics is done in this state now? DISGUSTING To Avoid Gun Control Loss, NJ Dems Halt Vote in Progress https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Y7ZwQf5EZQE
[aaron avantes] - I'm an independent and will vote for you in 2016!
[david osaki] - Great speech, great theme and great leadership during the hurricane. But to criticize those that may see politics about anything and then reference Iowa volunteers first when Iowa is the first caucus State during presidential elections seems a bit transparent.
[nan coll] - Looking good Gov. Sw you yesterday. Mother of Regis classmate of Jim Noblie.
[debbie uí briain] - Do the right thing and sign! At this point, you really don't have a choice.... it's a pity millions of taxpayer's money was wasted on a dump that should have never been allowed open in the first place in the middle of a residential area.... Please never do this to New Jerseyan's again! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151640322953503&set=a.375599063502.155907.349514113502&type=1&theater
[richard pisz] - of course no one asked him; we ALL know what he is. Just another sly ploy at trying to paint a positive picture of himself for political points. The comment was not necessary to any purpose regarding the shore. Just wants the spotlight on himself.
[mario sellitti] - No, but after this, nobody has to question http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/05/29/chris-christie-climate-change-a-distraction/ What were you thinking? You gained a lot of respect from both sides of the political fence with how you handled Sandy. Now, less than a year after the devastation, you are going to come out as a climate change denier? Well, there goes that respect. Enjoy your falling poll numbers, Mr. Governor.
