This is just a brief followup to Post #853, where I noted that Governor Chris Christie seemed to have dropped out of the news cycle. He was hospitalized last Saturday, and was discharged to home, from the hospital today, after a seven-day stay.
Near as I can tell, the White House did not, in fact, offer the standard pro-forma “thoughts and prayers” statement of concern for his well-being. (Although I may have missed it). That was one of the things I was looking for, in tracking this story. And I guess, unfortunately, I got the answer I expected.
I know nothing of the tenor of New Jersey politics, but for a state with a reputation for toughness, their politicians’ civility in this matter puts the White House to shame.
