Christie: Battling Blizzard Just Like Fighting Islamic Terrorism

Back on the presidential campaign trail in New Hampshire Sunday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said his handling of the monster blizzard over the weekend is proof he is equipped to take on terrorism.

"New Jersey has someone in charge who knew what he was doing," Christie told supporters in Portsmouth, the Daily Mail reported.

"The reason I knew what I was doing is because I've done it a lot of times before."

The snow emergency was the 17th since Christie assumed office six years ago.

"It's not that I was innately born with the ability to deal with snow emergencies or hurricanes, I've done it. You learn," Christie said.

"Whether it's an impending storm or whether it's the scourge of radical Islamic jihadist terrorism, you have to make people be safe and secure," added Christie added. "I’m proud that we didn't lose one life in New Jersey yesterday because the people of New Jersey, as crazy as it seems, they listen to me."

The storm that piled record snowfalls from New York to Washington, D.C., killed 17 people in other states.

Christie was criticized for indicating before the storm hit that he might stay on the trail in New Hampshire rather than returning to the Garden State.

He eventually returned home to deal with the crisis Saturday, but quickly got back to his electioneering while many areas of his state were still inundated with floodwaters.

ABC News  said he was asked by reporters after the town hall event what his response was to critics who say he left New Jersey too soon.

"I haven't heard anybody who said that," Christie responded.
