It was good to see President Obama reaching out to Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) to assist in the recovery from Hurricane Sandy. Not just for the fact that it will help boost the effort and get the wheels in motion, and not just for the fact that yes, even Big Government can move swiftly and efficiently. It means that the area and the people will get the help they need.
The fact that it has completely overshadowed Mitt Romney and his laughingly pathetic attempt to horn in on the recovery by actually staging a mock can drive with camera-ready events is just the cherry on top.
