Actually, yeah. Yeah, he did.There also are very real hard feelings inside the Romney camp about the way New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, seemed to lavish praise on Obama in the wake of Sandy's destruction, allowing Obama to appear bipartisan just as Romney was attacking him for being petty and partisan.
The above illustrates why the Republicans Don't Get It. Americans want to see aisle crossing. They want to know their leaders will put their differences aside in crucial moments and Get Shit Done.
I've never been a Christie fan. I don't like a lot of the things he stands for. But I know I can trust him to do the right thing when the need arises, when his people are in danger. We all know better where we stand with the guy. Which is more than we can say for a lot of politicians.
Of course the Right has a tradition of huddling up and shuffling further Right when things don't go their way. I anticipate them doing it. And I anticipate a long string of Democratic Presidents as a result. Which I don't necessarily think is a good thing.
