(Newser) – The Chris Christie-Barack Obama bromance lives on. At a keynote speech in front of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce last night, Gov. Christie had some more glowing words for the president vis-à-vis Hurricane Sandy, reports Buzzfeed. Christie announced that he wanted to end his speech by publicly thanking the "extraordinary" Obama for his hand in passing last month's Sandy aid bill, and recounted a visit he had with Obama days before the president's proposal went to Congress.

"I won't talk about how our conversation went—that's between me and the president," Christie said. "But I'll let you all know it was a lot of fun." Christie also got in a slight dig at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, telling the president in their meeting that if Obama agreed to the figure Christie was gunning for, the governor could ensure the president would not have to deal with Cuomo. "That may have made it more tempting," joked Christie.

No matter what your political leanings, you gotta admire this guy's authenticity and openness. He says what he thinks without coming off like a wonk or a wingnut. I don't agree with much of the GOP agenda today but I always find myself listening to what he has to say because of his style and willingness to work bipartisan.

Th real reason Christie has his head up President Obama's butt, is that he wants to get re-elected and that by kissing his butt he thinks the Obama Party won't pull all the gun's out on his re-election bid. But what he doesn't relize is that the Dem's will go after him and the GOP will also go after him for kissing up to Obama.
