Christie put his own political interests ahead of the country's when he over-praised Obama early in the Hurricane Sandy aftermath. He knew that his kissing up to Obama would win him support in NJ and at the same time take some of the air out of the Romney campaign, thereby putting Christie in a position to run for president in 2016. His plan worked perfectly for him. Romney lost a close election and Christie is sure to win a 2nd term as governor. Christie does not have the principles that I believe that our president should have.
