Romney Supporters Spew Hatred at Gov. Christie for Consorting With the “Traitor”
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie toured disaster areas with President Obama yesterday and praised his quick response to Hurricane Sandy, in a moment of non-political unity that was actually pretty wonderful to see.
When Christie first praised the President, I wrote:
Kudos to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for putting partisan politics aside, but you know the right wing base is not going to like these comments one bit.
And sure enough, the conservative base responded to Christie with an overwhelming deluge of hatred, insults, and conspiracy theories. The hate is all over the right wing blogs today, and LGF reader Silvio Breckman collected some of the vile tweets they’re sending out on Twitter:
