Do you think Chris Christie would not only have praised Barack Obama but also dissed Mitt Romney if he thought Romney actually had a snowball’s chance in hell of being elected?
Yes, I have no doubt Obama and the FEMA team earned Christie’s praise. But he doesn’t strike me as the sort of good-government type who would say something just because it happens to be true. And the slight to Romney was completely gratuitous. Christie just put a deposit in Obama’s favor bank and helped position himself for 2016. But he’s dead meat if Romney gets in. Ergo, he thinks Romney is toast.
