As New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and President Barack Obama team up to rescue the Garden State, rumors of a Christie/Romney rift have been circulating among bloggers and on the Twittersphere.
A Chris Christie/Romney rift was also alleged after Christie’s Republican National Convention barn burner speech, in which the well-loved Republican made a great case for the election of… Chris Christie for president in 2016.
While Christie took the stage for a long while, his words were light on Romney mentions, and the focus didn’t go unnoticed by many watching, blue and red alike.
But the Chris Christie/Romney rift allegations have heated up this week as the Jersey governor, once one of Obama’s most fearless and vocal critics, has put aside partisan politics to embrace the president and work together to repair his Hurricane Sandy-damaged state.
In fact, the Christie/Romney rift rumors heated up when the governor deflected pressure to politicize the efforts made by Obama during a recent interview, snapping on Fox And Friends:
“I have no idea [if Mitt Romney plans to visit New Jersey after Sandy], nor am I the least bit concerned or interested. I have a job to do in New Jersey that is much bigger than presidential politics. I could care less about any of that stuff … If you think right now I give a damn about president politics, then you don’t know me.”
