This is what Gov. Haley Barbour of South Carolina said to Matt Lauer on the Today show this morning. The big story and part of the blame is being aimed at New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Christie teamed up with President Obama last week as both men responded to the devastation caused by the big storm. Christie then praised Obama’s response like an endorsement.
Christie a potential 2016 White House contender said, he worked harder than just about every other republican to elect Romney, and that his recent praise of Obama had nothing to do with Romney’s loss.
“My activity with President Obama was just another chapter in the leadership I’ve tried to show in this state, which is people care more about getting things done than they care about partisanship,” he said Wednesday.
“And I’m going to continue to conduct myself that way.”
What’s your take on this? Do you think Christie’s praise of president Barack Obama’s hurricane response was somewhat of an endorsement and did President Obama’s response save his re-election? Please sound off because I strongly disagree with the South Carolina Governor.
