(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. (Read more Chris Christie stories.)
