Video: Gov. Christie wins Obama a teddy bear on Jersey’s boardwalk

President Obama visited the Jersey Shore Tuesday on a post-Hurricane Sandy tour and, just as he promised, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was there to welcome him with open arms.

Working hard to pivot away from the swirling scandals that have rocked his administration, Obama is looking to get his groove back, as the Associate Press described it. And Christie appears more than willing to assist.

The reunited buds even paid an unannounced visit to the Point Pleasant boardwalk and Christie wins Obama a teddy bear.

From Politico:

The party then moved to an arcade called “TouchDown Fever” to try and win a stuffed bear by tossing a football through a tire. Obama tried and missed a few times. Christie then threw the ball through the tire, on his first and only try. Obama gave him a high five ending in a clasp. And said,  “That’s because he’s running for office.”

The guy behind the counter gave Obama a “Chicago” bear…

The day was not all lollipops and sunshine, though. Politico shares the pool report from Christi Parsons of the Tribune:

The motorcade drove down Route 71 through Brielle to Point Pleasant. Crowds lined the street and grade-school age students on the street held a banner from Brielle Elementary.

A guy in front of a bait and tackle shop in Point Pleasant was giving the motorcade the finger as it rolled past. His sign had “Obama” with a slash through it.

And while the media celebrates the “bipartisanship” on display, radio talk show giant Rush Limbaugh calls it something else: “Obama has money, Gov. Christie wants the money,” Limbaugh said on Tuesday’s show.

“Gov. Christie needs the money so the people will be helped, so Christie praises Obama. It’s a master-servant relationship. Exactly the kind of bipartisanship that the drive-by media want.”
