New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who famously embraced President Obama after Hurricane Sandy and days before the presidential election, had more praise for the president today.

“Listen, the president has kept every promise that he made. And — and the fact is that is that that’s what I was saying at the time. I was saying at the time was, I was asked about how how was the president doing. And I say he’s doing a good job. He’s kept his word,” Christie said about Hurricane Sandy relief on MSNBC today.

“And so, everybody knows that I have about 95 percent level of disagreement with Barack Obama on issues of principle and philosophy, but the fact is, we have a job to do. And what people expect from people they elect is to do their job. And that’s why they hate Washington so much.”

Christie said Washington is hated because Americans see it as a place where politicians prefer arguing and “being right” to getting the job done.

“The president is guilty of that. The Congress is guilty of that. What we did, the president and I did at the time was, we saw suffering together,” the governor continued.

“And when you see that, you’re either going to step up and be responsible or you’re not. And we stepped up and were responsible together. And since that time, I have to say everything that they promised they would do, they’ve done. And so, I don’t have any complaints or arguments with them this morning on the issue of Sandy relief.”

I'd ask what color the sky is on his planet, but he's from Jersey so the answer is obvious.
