Christie: ‘A Lot of Fun’ With Obama

It appears Chris Christie is continuing his Obama lovefest into 2013. The New Jersey governor on Thursday thanked President Obama for helping to successfully secure the $50 billion in relief from superstorm Sandy—and said they had a conversation that was “a lot of fun.” At others’ expense, perhaps? Christie wouldn’t elaborate on the details of the conversation, although he said he told the president the amount of relief money he wanted, and that he tried to sweeten the pot by saying that the president would not have to “deal with” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “That may have made it more tempting,” Christie joked to the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. In all seriousness, Christie did say the president had been “extraordinary” in helping his state.
