Putting Politics Aside For Those Struggling

I was proud of Republican New Jersey Governor Christie for standing by President Obama and commending President Obama for his quick response to those in need, during their recent tour of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.
Gov. Christie was criticized by many Fox " news reporters ", but put partisan politics on the back burner and rolled up his sleeves with Democratic President Obama to get work done for Americans, who are in need.
Maybe the Republican leadership in Congress can learn from this and reach across the aisle for all Americans. We cant survive on either the far left or far right and still be a Democracy.
