Christie hearts Obama

Pre-Sandy, Chris Christie likened Barack Obama to "a man wandering around a dark room, hands up against the wall, clutching for the light switch of leadership, and he just can’t find it."

Post-Sandy, the New Jersey governor described the president as "outstanding," "great," and "incredibly supportive."

Although a superstorm can make quite a difference, there's nothing new about Christie's inability to mince words. And unlike other Republicans, he's not afraid to appear -- or even, act -- bi-partisan.

But the governor, whose leadership during Sandy has been outstanding, hasn't exactly lost his zest for partisan zingers.

Just ask Atlantic City mayor Lorenzo Langford, who seems unlikely to accompany newfound BFFs Christie and Obama as they tour stricken sections of the Shore today.
