Seriously, President Obama and NJ Gov. Chris Christie need to get a room.

Meanwhile, New Jersey residents hit hard by Hurricane Sandy are taking to Twitter to plead for basic services. Breitbart investigative writer Mandy Nagy in Bedminster NJ reports:

More Jersey reaction:

Many viewers noticed Obama’s rather un-leader-like stumbling and bumbling:

Guess there wasn’t enough power for Obama’s teleprompter.

    And here come the complaints as things don’t go fats enough. Lets see if the MSM covers them like they did Katrina

    • poljunkie♪

      Oh they wont. ITs Obama after all. Hes a God doncha know.

      • Elaine

        Wonder if they will say Obama hates white people when help is slow?

        • lainer51

          of course (snark) !!!!! Ed Schultz will be the first, followed by Matthews, MadCow, ODonnell, Hayes, Sharpton, and last, but not least, Toure’… (did his mother have too much meds at his birth – what kind of name is that?)

    • lainer51

      never happen, they still have their heads up their *ss trying to hide from the Libya questions!

  • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

    It’s not Christie’s fault these people chose not to evacuate when he told them to. And it’s not Obama’s fault either. How about taking some of that personal responsibility you conservs are always preaching and EVACUATING WHEN TOLD?!

    • J. Cox

      ROFL…you mean like in NOLA?When you idiots on the left blamed every republican within 200 miles for 8 years runnin?Funny how when your guy ain’t getting it done any faster,your thin skinned hypocrisy just flails around like your idiotic talking points.

      • poljunkie♪

        EXACTLY. They blamed Bush as if he were Mother Nature. As If he were Ray Nagin. As if he were Blanco. They did nothing. BUT Pres Bush got the blame. The people in that area- didnt evacuate—they sat there for days- DAYS ahead of the warning. Sitting on their porchs…doing nothing. They didnt even stock up on water or food. THEN they cried for help. Pitiful.

    • James Atkins

      Have you ever, in your life, been through a natural disaster?

      • Penmar

        Yes, 4 yrs of Obama….you know you walked right into that one. But on a serious side, to Daffy, just where did you expect those millions of people to evacuate to, where are you going to put millions of people?

        • milootoole

          FEMA camps.

          • Penmar

            Those are not available until after the disaster, mostly because if you set the up before hand, they might not still be standing afterwards.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        @James Atkins:
        Yes.
        In 96 yrs I’ve been through a few… a list would be long, but I can categorize it. Hurricanes, Tornados, Earthquakes, blizzards, floods, even a volcano… once. Never again for the volcano…I found nothing good in that experience.

        Then there are wars & “police actions”— which many people seemingly count as natural disasters, but I don’t.

        Probably even a few you haven’t heard of kid.

        Why’d you ask?

        • James Atkins

          This question was directed at The Daffodil Times, is this him in another account? I just think it is crass to come in here, talk of personal responsibility when people have lost everything. Ok, so they didn’t evacuate, but I happen to believe , as a conservative, that disaster relief and disaster assistance IS one of the things government should help with. You know, some food, some clothes, maybe some water and a place to stay. This would be the purest example of why a social program should exist. To help those truly in need. Free health care is not a disaster. Free birth control is not a disaster. Oh, and why so condescending? Thank you for your service.

          • twolaneflash

            No, disaster relief is why family, church, and community exist. Government exists to protect and reflect the above, which it is doing, not just a lousy job of, but everything it can to destroy them. Your words speak of conservatism, but your heart speaks of Big Government.

          • James Atkins

            Sir, please do not try to assume you know what is in my heart. Anyway, I can agree with all of your points about the local communities know best how to help their own. I do get it, but if you don’t think the federal government has any part in helping in times of great human suffering such as what is going on in NJ, NY, etc, then I think that is just being silly.

          • twolaneflash

            Don’t call me Sir! I’m a working man! You speak of the purity of socialism? Feh. Big Government Socialism consistently & repeatedly fails. WalMart, FedEx, etc are better at getting goods on location within reach of most people in the shortest time and maintain the resupply, even through disasters. Tide Detergent has a better system of doing laundry in disaster areas (seen the ad?). Every American corporation with an independent delivery system is sending their products to the NE as charity. Beverage and nutritional companies are switching production to water to send. Churches nationwide are in action through national or local contacts. Government? Heck of a job, Brownie.

          • James Atkins

            Ok, sorry for the Sir comment :) I made an assumption via your avatar that you are military..it’s a habit, my father was in the Army. Anyway..again, I think we are actually in agreement here, to a certain degree. However, I am absolutely not talking about the purity of Socialism, lol..that you can be sure of. All I am saying is the government, whether large or small, has a role in times like these… nothing more than that. In regard to your Katrina comment, I believe the federal government correctly sent in the National Guard and the Army Corp of Engineers

          • twolaneflash

            @James Atkins: My thanks and gratitude to your father for his service. I, too, served ( U.S. Army 1970-73). The avatar is for my son, a senior weapons sergeant on a Green Beret A-team. In the military, working man refers to enlisted personnel, who work, as opposed to officers, who do not (you had to be there).

          • James Atkins

            Awesome, thanks to you and your son as well. I am very proud of my father and his service..he was a working man too :)

    • poljunkie♪

      OH you mean like the dolts in the New Orleans area during Katrina? The ones that sat for days—DAYS —-and then complained that no one helped them? The ones that didnt leave….then didnt even stock up on food or water…..

      • lainer51

        and then screamed into Anderson Cooper’s “hand-held” (HA) mic that the “government needs to get here and call me a cab”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      @The Daffodil Times:
      Funny, a previous thread you tood the opposite view, even down to government being responsible for replacing the food in people’s freezers.

      And were calling the people of the forum to task b/c they were saying what you said here.

      One of the phrases you used was ‘…Because Republicans don’t believe in power outages!’ and I coomented on it thete, too.

      You have that opinion on a spindle, or just a really fast cam joint?

  • Brian

    Doesn’t the military have vehicles that can get the trees off the road etc. ? National Guard available?

    • bobbypickens

      Does nobody in those neighborhoods have a pickup tow rope and chainsaw? You don’t have to be a government worker to move a tree from a road. Guarantee you if the whole community pitches in they can get those rods cleared much faster than waiting on someone else to do it.

      • John (it true me am)

        The only thing is that given the current insanity of the government anyone who tries to help on their own will probably get fined.

  • Tony0920

    Obama must be thrilled at the need for repairs: roads and bridges. Taxes will build that.

    • Dante Laboy

      Vital infrastructure, evil! Saving lives, evil! Wars, great! Poverty, awesome! Racism, heaven!

      • smmy33

        Yes because you know what is truly the sign of a governemnt doing it’s job

        When they use American bombs and assets to pick sides in a foreign nations civil war, killing hundreds, then place a American Ambassador and diplomats in this unstable war torn country with no real protection , even when the American personal repeatly ask for more protection, put don’t get it because the politcial hacks in the American government want to show the world that they were right to intervene without congressional approve in a other country’s civil war by appearing to ” have a light footprint”

        And when the American Ambassdor and others are under fire and have been the targets they warned about their government does nothing to help and ignores their repeated cries for help…. All because it will make the political hacks in the governemnt look bad before a major election.

        And when the dead body of our Ambassdor is dragged around through the streets of this foreign nation to cheers then those same hacks lie to the American people and try to orchestrate one of the worse cover up every perpetrated by first blaming the murders of our citizens on a another American , who is sill now in jail on trumped up charges

        Ah it is truly amazing what governemnt under a liberal can do.

    • Donna Jackson

      You didn’t build that! :)

  • Armando

    Typical Conservative reaction when a Republican is civil and prioritize getting the job done over politics: “President Obama and NJ Gov. Chris Christie need to get a room.”

    • Fire and Adjust!

      And what was the typical liberal reaction when Stacy Dash announced her vote for someone who she thinks can get the job done rather than someone who shares her race?

      • J. Cox

        Don’t try to rationalize with the left…it takes logic and facts…and a big heap of look at yesterday..all of which they are in short supply.The biggest trait and seemingly the most important for a leftard is to be overflowing with hypocrisy.

      • Dante Laboy

        You’re drawing equivalence with a few people on twitter criticizing a presidential endorsement from some C-lister, to white house correspondents and pundits mocking the relief efforts of elected officials during the midst of a deadly storm? You’re a really cold hearted person.

        • Fire and Adjust!

          Cold hearted like wishing death on a person who only stated her voter preference? Cold hearted like liberals wishing Paul Ryan’s wife or daughter get sexually assaulted? Or Cold hearted like you reducing and marginalizing all those death threats to a “a few people on twitter criticizing a presidential endorsement” ? Nice Try

          • Armando

            You could also use the twitter users that use derogatory epithets against the president to characterize all conservatives, but you would be making the same mistake that twitchy always does. In this case, a popular conservative website like twitchy is making the remarks. There are no liberal websites insulting anybody like this.

          • Fire and Adjust!

            if you don’t think the Huffington Post, Daily Kos, or any of the liberal websites don’t mock, denigrate, or marginalize Romney or other conservatives, you should scroll through those websites and revise your perception.

          • Dante Laboy

            exactly

          • Dante Laboy

            exactly

          • lainer51

            BINGO!

      • Armando

        So basically you are admitting that yes, that is the typical reaction, but “the left did it first”?

        • Fire and Adjust!

          That was not an admission of anything, it was a statement of unequal expectation of civil discourse (better known as hypocrisy).

          • Armando

            Civil discourse and prioritizing getting the job done over politics is expected from both Democrats and Republicans, and when any of them does it, it should be applauded, not ridiculed.

          • Fire and Adjust!

            Agreed, which is why it is confusing the mainstream media ridicules Romney delivering food, supplies, and other support as a political ploy…………don’t see much applause there. Again, hypocrisy………. right or wrong, both sides are guilty of it, but UNEQUAL expectations of civil discourse ARE there, and they do not favor conservatives……….

  • Juan_Rico

    I was watching Cavuto when they interrupted it for this speech. I kept expecting Christie and the Bamster to break into a furious make-out session at any second. Sickening.

    • RealityBitesBack

      Starting to get really suspicious. Is Christie setting up the media? He’s smart enough to do it. In the aftermath, MSM will be drooling to get an interview with hot shot GOP governor to recap his support of Obama. THAT is when he will disclose the implied threat that he support the photo-op or his state will receive nothing.

      Me thinks he doth profess too much!

  • bobbypickens

    Grab a chainsaw and start clearing the trees out of the road. It maybe hardwork but it can be done I promise. You don’t have to sit there tweeting put on some work gloves and do something.

    • RealityBitesBack

      He’s done enough damage with his hands either in his pocket or gripping a golf club… I cringe to think what he could do with a chainsaw.

      • lainer51

        I don’t think you should joke about his favorite sport – pocket pool! LMAO!

    • Donna Jackson

      That’s the problem with the entitlement mentality. Call the government! Obama will bring gas with him on Air Force 1…lol

      • roadtotruth

        Dumbest logic ever. “Entitlement” bad, but all these pooooor people have to sit in line for gas after a monstrous natural disaster! Which is it??? Government can’t help or government’s not helping fast enough? Idiots.

      • lainer51

        probably after the lunch he shared by candlelight and wine with Christie, he does have gas.

  • Right Wired

    Has New Jersey gotten any water or FEMA trailers yet?

    • RealityBitesBack

      As Rush so cleverly stated, “Today was a tour of homes for the 1%”

      Waiting for Obama to stand by the remnants of someone’s home and demand to know “who didn’t change their light-bulbs & lower their carbon footprint”.

    • twolaneflash

      Thousands of those FEMA trailers rotted away unused in parking lots after Katrina, or were unusable as they were made with toxic gas emitting materials, or were filled with toxic mold. The ones that were used and recovered were mostly wrecked by the tenants. It was a scandal as profiteers bought them from the government, removed the toxic materials stickers restricting use of the trailers, and sold them to an unsuspecting public. I’d be really skeptical about a FEMA trailer; it could be hazardous to your health.

    Uhhh Obama is a MORON and uhhhhhhh Christie is a fat ass

  • RealityBitesBack

    Joke is on Obama. Full day of “hands on” Commander in Chief when issue is an act of God; full day of campaigning and media dodging when issue is an act of omission by Commander in Chief.

    Christie figured out a way to reach across the aisle on behalf of his constituents; highlight the willingness of our vacant chair president to steal first responders from real emergencies to escort him to his photo ops and keep the lack of situation room photos of Benghazi in the news for a full day. #genius

    Love how liberals will rush to the front of the line when there is nothing they can do, but get out of town quick when there is actually a job to be done.

  • Purple State

    You’d think in a crisis of this magnitude that compassionate conservatives would be counting their blessings instead of the president’s “uh”s. There’s always time for partisan rancor on Twitchy!

    • Dante Laboy

      you have to understand that some people have an askew moral compass, and are just really cold hearted…the problem, here, is that one of our major political parties courts those who possess twisted psychological profiles and actively seek their vote.

      • smmy33

        Yes because the MSNBC crowd calling Romney everything under sun for actually doing something like getting donations, commissioning trucks to drive then from Ohio to New Jersey, organizing with a Charity in New Jersey not the Red Cross to take the donations and distribut them to people in need is EVIL…….

        Obama taking time and recourses from areas devasted by the storm for photo ops is a leader ……

        Why did Bloomberg tell Obama sorry , don’t have time for photo ops, but thanks anyways, but the left was screeching when Bush didn’t walk around New Orleans after Kartina too stupid and bitter to acknowledge that all Presidents are just in the way the first days of a major disaster

        But then you have sh-t heads like these two commenting that their the gracious ones…. Go back to the civility blog that is Huffington Post, that has a post up right now for you to comment on
        Romney the devill or just the anit Christ.

  • Dio Heerai

    Biggest LOSER in all of this CHRIS CHRISTI!!!! eventually he will be blamed for all of this and LOSE reelection AND after the optics of this FIASCO …ANY NATIONAL HOPES BY CHRISTI are now DEAD
    He should just do his ARLEN SPECTER backflip and get it over with

  • poljunkie♪

    Christie is playing the long odds for 2016 with this. What a politican. Epic fail in my book.

  • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

    Christie and Obama are politicizing a devastating disaster. Obama for now and Christie in 2016. Both media freaks could care less about the victims of this horrific event. Christie lost any respect I had for him. He and O Built that.

    • lainer51

      totally agree… i was a Christie fan when he first took office because he told it like it was, but I now see, that facade is gone, sadly replaced by the “politician” one.

  • Donna Jackson

    Christie should be ashamed of himself. The other leaders wanted to lead on their own, but not Christie. What a DA! And a shameful one at that. I’m not even watching that video. I’m already sick.
    On another note…I live in Florida. If you look at any site that lists hurricane essentials, they tell you to have enough supplies to get through 72 hours on your own. They say it will take the authorities that long to get to people…So food, water, gas, money, batteries, firewood…You need to get through 3 days on your own. With that, I feel bad for the people who didn’t know it and are cold and hungry. All the president did with the governor to help these people was absolutely nothing! All of that extra security only had to divert from what the police depts should be doing.
