Christie To Critics Of Disney Trip During Storm: "I Had A Great Five Days"

Republican Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey defended his leaving for Disney World ahead of the fifth largest blizzard in state history. He called the criticism "carping" and "partisanship" and stated that he was in contact with officials who were following a plan to deal with the storm. Christie explained why he was at "the Happiest Place on Earth" while his state was buried in snow:

“I made a promise to my children…that I was going to take them to Disney World,” said Christie. “I was not going to look at my children and say we’re not going.”

...Christie called charges he “abandoned” the state nothing but silly politics, and said he had absolutely no regrets. “I had a great five days.”
