NJ Gov. Christie & Obama Play Arcade Games In the Rain on Asbury Park‘s Boardwalk.  Guess who won? All Smile now.

There was lots of news today and I did not get to do a post on my beloved Governor and Obama’s 2nd visit to the Jersey Shore.  Christie needs that return Photo-op for his reelection? Opps, I forgot, Christie is a Republican.  But Christie helped Obama and invited him to the Jersey Shore  after Hurricane Sandy devastation days before the Presidential Election of 2012.

Nuff said, The Phillies are playing the Red Sox’s, top of the 9th inning Cliff Lee (5-2) on mound. ( I love lefties)  3-1 Phillies.  (So sorry my Dear friend Tom, forgive me) Will my Philles find a way to Win in the Green Monster? Will Papelbon’s return to Boston close the deal if winning in 9th,? Or will Lee go the distance because he looks surgical tonight? Breath, it is long MLB season. Sorta like the next Presidential election of 2016.  Well, not that long.

President Barack Obama is visiting Hatfield, Pennsylvania to visit a small business. Obama wants to use it as an example of the types of companies he says will be hurt if lawmakers don’t stop the series of tax increases and spending cuts from going into effect Jan. 1.
