PMT: Chris Christie on supporting Obama during "Sandy"

Tonight "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Chris Christie as the show continued coverage of "Sandy," the storm's aftermath and recovery efforts.

The Governor of New Jersey's state was amongst those hit the hardest, with massive devastation.

A staunch Republican, and an endorser of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Christie has praised President Barack Obama for his support this week after the storm and ahead of Obama's visit to NJ tomorrow:

"This is much more important than any election, Piers. This is the livelihood of the people in my state," says the 50-year-old who was born in Newark. "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise. And when the president does things that deserve scorn, I'll give him scorn."

    If the federal government responds to these catastrophes with my tax dollars isn't that socialism. Shouldn't government stay out of the lives of the people. Shouldn't people take care of themselves. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it. I thought so.

    I want to know how Mayor Bloomburg can go on live TV late Saturday and tell New York residents there is nothing to worry about that this was not going to be a bad storm, then recant his story and order an evacuation less than 12 hours later. I feel the people who stayed should not be blamed for putting the fire department in harms way. It should be Mayor Bloomburg. They might not have had time to evacuate due to him telling them not to worry. I feel he should be held accountable for the deaths in New York just as the scientists that got sentenced for not warning the people about the earthquake. Thanks, Trudi Owens Broken Arrow Ok

    Strong feelings about political parties: Shouldn't we all be doing whatever is best for everyone - in the world!!!!! People are people and crises should not be the only thing to bring us together.
