New Jersey mayors may refuse police services for Super Bowl

  • 5 New Jersey mayors have threatened to refuse to provide police and emergency service for next year’s Super Bowl, slated to be held in MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. Said Seacaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli: “The stadium… has done little to help offset any costs for the surrounding communities when larger events occur… there is little doubt that the mayors will be expecting a call that their services are needed. The answer will be clear. Don’t ask.” source

Chris Christie is a popular man

  • +21 Chris Christie’s net popularity amongst Republicans. Respectable!
  • +29 Christie’s net popularity amongst Democrats. Even better! source

Remember the days just before the election, when Christie was saying all sorts of nice things about President Obama, and everyone thought that was really crazy for doing that? It doesn’t look so crazy anymore.

I’m saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds, because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans. It was an absolute disgrace.
Republican Rep. Peter King • Condemning House Republicans for refusing to vote on a post-Sandy disaster relief bill that was approved by the Senate last week. The bill would have allocated roughly $60.4 billion in disaster relief funding for the areas in New York and New Jersey that were devastated by Sandy last year. House Republicans have responded to the criticism with assurances that a vote is coming in the 113th Congress, and a denial that there is any immediate need for such funding. source

Stop what you’re doing. Look at these photos. Buzzfeed’s Matt Stopera has gathered 60 photos of the destruction from Hurricane Sandy. It is worse than you think it is. Stopera’s only commentary — "These people need help"  — nails it.

On Twitter today, Chris Christie reached out to Twitter super-user Justin Bieber for help promoting the New Jersey Sandy relief fund. He’s also sent similar messages to Bruce Springsteen, Piers Morgan, Danny DeVito, the Jonas Brothers and “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro in the past two hours. For what it’s worth, Bieber’s working on it. Are you? (ht Matthew Keys)
