Lovely – Christie Called Obama To Congratulate Him, Emailed Romney


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (or as Zip calls him, Judas) twisted the knife in our backs and announced that he called President Obama to congratulate him on his win. Romney just got an email. I would have thought Obama would have called Christie to thank him.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he had called President Obama to congratulate him on his win in the 2012 presidential election — but has only sent an e-mail to Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for whom he campaigned heavily earlier this year.

“We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,” Christie said of his call to Obama, according to Bloomberg. “I said congratulations on your win last night Mr. President, he said thank you governor.”

Christie added that he had sent an e-mail to Romney on Wednesday night.

“We haven’t spoken on the phone yet,” he continued.

Christie has come under fire from some Republicans who suggested that he hurt Romney by praising the president’s efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

If Republicans forget this and start calling for him to run in 2016 my head might explode.
