Worldly Talk

Civil discussion and debate on real world events and issues.


Candid moment: President Obama with his young campaign staffers

 
Agreed. Governor Christie seems to want to do his job. Pure and simple. In a time of disaster and recovery, politics are a distraction from the very real problems that must be solved. FOX appeared to want him to play politics, he declined, and simply acknowledged the assistance that the state had received. He realized that although almost everything that the media wanted to talk about at that time was politics, the people of his state were more important.
There are a few other people who managed to rise above politics during the campaign frenzy, and good on them too.

Holy crap, dude.

A fortunate bonus, considering I wasn't trying to explain my argument.

I hope Christie's example spreads, even so far as becoming 'the norm', but I'm rather cynical as to the odds.

Because I'm generally trying to avoid drawing threads off-topic in the first page.

Then why say it in the first place?
