Did Hurricane Sandy Save President Obama’s re-election?

81

November 8, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


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.

    Obama won NJ in 2012 but didn’t win NJ in 2008 but we can’t say it saved his re-election. Obama had more electorial votes than Romney. Can’t agree with Barbour.

      Angelhair, Obama didn’t win NJ in 08 because alotta people liked McCain but the majority of the people everywhere couldn’t stand Romney. The dems vote was strong in NJ because people feared Romney as the next president.

    >>Trace my take is this…..the repubs need to place blame for Romney’s LOST and they layin it on ole pott belly christie

    “Do you think Christie’s praise of president Barack Obama’s hurricane response was somewhat of an endorsement”
    >>>>Christie was sincere and focused on help from the president. bottom line but what’s pissing his party off is he talked about Obama’s LEADERSHIP as a president which is what’s killing them becuz Christie was truthful in his fairness of Obama’s response to the disaster

    “and did President Obama’s response save his re-election?”
    HELL TO THE NO THEY MAD and wanna say it was something other than what it was so why not the hurricane

    To win an Election you have to appeal to the majority and Romney didn’t do that….you also need that same record behind you so you dont get caught changing your views and Romney did!!! He flip flopped and changed his views on the issues more than a fat lady changes her drawers! Romney lied at his convenience.

    The repubs had nobody good enuff to stand against obama. 1st they tried to use Cain who they hoped would appeal to the minority (black-hispanic) but then skeletens came flying out his closet of adultry. Then they thought it would be Newt but his wife was too focused on herself to help him get there. Then you had the other fool from Texas who was gun happy.

    Obama was the better man and the better candidate and if you watch our Mr. President’s body language he has no qualms approcahing whites, blacks, latinos, asians, jews nobody. He’s personable and that’s how you have to be as a leader.

    So they can play the blame game from now till 2016 Obama got his 2nd term.
