In what President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie both called a non-political event, the president on Wednesday surveyed the damage caused by superstorm Sandy in the Garden State. Christie, who spent months criticizing Obama before praising his Sandy response this week as "outstanding," greeted Obama on the tarmac at Atlantic City International Airport before the two boarded Marine One to fly over New Jersey's flooded cities. "Together the two men cut an image of bipartisanship and cooperation ahead of next week's" presidential election, although Christie insists the interaction is solely about addressing the devastation in his state.
