The problem is more than a one-time misguided compliment of the president. I don't think aybody could honestly watch that whole fiasco and not conclude that Christie was intentionally sinking Romney's campaign. He had to know that the press would be running pictures of him and the president smiling triumphantly. Obama originally campaigned on being bipartisan, but fell woefully short. This finally gave the press the opportunity they needed to revive "Obama the Uniter" imagery.
