President Barack Obama drew praise from one of Republican Mitt Romney’s top backers for the government’s response to the Atlantic superstorm as both candidates tried to navigate the politics of a natural disaster with the election one week away.

New Jersey Republican Chris Christie, the governor of one of the states hardest hit by Sandy, lauded the president during interviews on morning news shows today. Obama will visit New Jersey tomorrow, the White House said in a statement.

“I have to give the president great credit,” Christie, who delivered the keynote address at Romney’s nominating convention, said on the Fox News Channel. “He’s done, as far as I’m concerned, a great job for New Jersey.”

What's this? A politician being reasonable and giving credit where it's do regardless of party lines? This cannot stand!

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Not much.  Christie is an exception to the rule.  He truly doesn't seem to care who he offends when he tells the truth as he sees it.  He's trying to start rebuilding a city...I'd imagine he appreciates the help no matter where it comes from.
ETA  I'd vote for him as governor of my State even if he was a Dem.

And think Mitt wants to get rid of this role in government.

I wish we'd see more of this in politics.   Civil discourse is sorely missing.

I wish when someone is doing something right say something even if its not your own party.  Politician need to start putting the people first not the party.

Well Palin, Murdoch, and Limbaugh have all condemned Christie for daring to work across political lines for the benefit of the public. And people wonder why the US is in such a mess...

You and Rush seem to have varying ideas of what condemnation is.
That guy is the biggest jerk on the radio, HE is what divides america.  The thing about Limbaugh is he says what he wants about people,
calls them ****s etc..
Then when he himself gets condemned he says "Oh, It was only entertainment".  Try really listening to him,then you'll hear the racist,
sexist, pig he really is.
And without much effort he can control the weak minded.
