While America begins the job of cleaning up after the devastation wrought by massive storm
Sandy, President Obama is emerging as the chief benefactor for his poise and leadership.
Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a
fierce critic of Barack Obama who had been aggressively campaigning for Mitt Romney, has given the President his seal of approval. Up to this weeks storm he had said that the Democrats did not deserve a second term in the White House.
Christie is praising Obama and the Federal Emergency Management Agency in interviews on major television networks.
“I have a job in New Jersey that is much bigger than presidential politics,” Gov. Chris Christie said on the show Fox & Friends. “I couldn’t care less about that.”
With top Romney supporters like Christie singing Obama's praises less than a week before Election Day, it looks like Sandy has an impact on the presidential race.
