New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is taking it on the chin from fellow Republicans for praising President Barack Obama. Christie commented that Obama “sprang into action immediately” and showed “concern and compassion” for the residents of New Jersey and the Northeast during Hurricane Sandy.

With the destruction along the Jersey Shore and in the Northeast during Hurricane Sandy, you would think that politics would be put aside.

That does not appear to be the case. Even in time of destruction and chaos in our country, politics, not the people affected by Hurricane Sandy or the safety of the citizens, seems to be the No. 1 concern for some people. Is there no sacred ground in this country?
