New Jersey Governor Chris Christie On Morning Joe on MSNBC Tuesday October 30 speaking about hurricane Sandy:

“The President’s been great.  I spoke to him three times.  He called me for the last time at midnight last night.  He asked me what I needed.  I said, if you could expedite the major disaster declaration without all the normal FEMA mumbo jumbo.  He got right on it.  I got a call from FEMA at 2am for me to answer a couple of questions and then this morning, I understand, he signed the major disaster declaration for New Jersey.  The President has been all over this and he deserves great credit.  I’ve been on the phone with him, like I said, yesterday personally three times.  He gave me his number at the White House and told me to call him if I need anything, and he absolutely means it.  It’s been very good working with the President, and he and his administration have been coordinating with us great.  It’s been wonderful.”
