Bromance Blossoms Between President Obama and Chris Christie

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama flew to Atlantic City to meet with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie so that they could, together, survey the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The two pols went on a helicopter ride, posed for pictures and held hands. Basically, they did everything that makes single people want to barf. The Daily News even featured them on Thursday’s cover.

The Christie/Obama bromance, as some are calling it, certainly helps O, but far more importantly, their cooperation helps storm victims.Sam Seaborn

Great. Now anything short of a Christie/Obama tryst is going to be a huge disappointment. Thanks, Twitter. #DrudgeSexScandalS.E. Cupp
Very impressed by Obama/Christie. True bi-partisan leadership. But Romney must be tearing his hair out – can’t help his election chances.Piers Morgan
