New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may have worked closely with President Obama in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, but it appears hes more emotionally invested in a different budding bromance. Christie admitted at a Monday briefing that he started weeping after he hugged Bruce Springsteen at NBCs telethon for Sandys victims Friday night, the Record reported.
We hugged, Christie said to a crowd of relief volunteers in Monmouth County on Monday, according to the Record. Yeah, we hugged and he told me its official-we're friends!'
Christie and Springsteen had met twice before, but their interactions had been limited to formal pleasantries, the Record noted. Their previously tense relationship may have stemmed from their opposing presidential preferencesChristie campaigned for GOP candidate Mitt Romney, while Springsteen was active in fundraisers for President Obama. Hurricane Sandys devastation, however, managed to bring the two Jersey boys together.
I told the President today actually that the hug was great and that when we got home there was a lot of weeping because of the hug, Christie said. And the President said, Why? I said, Well, to be honest, I was the one weeping, everyone else was fine.
Obama gave Christie another chance to interact with his musical hero on Monday, when he handed Springsteen the phone while discussing storm relief with the N.J. governor, the AP reported.
Christie hinted at the briefing that his newfound friendship with The Boss will continue to blossom in the near future.
Bruce has said hes going to be here to help the community in New Jersey as soon as he gets off tour, Christie said. So Im looking forward to spending some more time with him as we go forward.
Christie joked it was even better to talk to Springsteen on Monday than it was to talk to Obama.

Post-facto barf alert. No-talent hack “musician” and Ceratotherium governor embrace, and lacrimation ensues . . .
What is with teses weepy dweebs... first Boner now Chrispy.. must be hormones
What a disgusting disgrace that slob is. The people of New Jersey must be so proud.
Then again, when you consider that New Jersey is the armpit of America, you can’t really expect any better.
This fat-slob must be peggin’ the Gaydar. Good luck NJ.
Poor old Chris had a tough time of ot. Hurricane, runny mascara and I hope Obama didn’t leave a stain on his nice blue dress.
So, what did the telethon with the pretentious has-been no-talent self-important mouthbreather Bruce Brainstrain do to alleviate the suffering of the storm victims?
As another storm bears down on them and the temperatures fall to freezing, they still have no shelter, no power, no gasoline, no lights, no food and no water.
This fat turd Christie gave the election to Obama , what a traitor to America Christie is.
what a joke CC is
I guess CC is one of the sheeple who don’t know that “Born in the USA” is an anti-American screed
O M G, I am sick to death of men that cry.
Yeah Christie weeps and all of America will be weeping one day as we remember his effort to put Obama in good light and take Benghazi off the front page.
The irony is that Springsteen must surely loathe Christie simply because of the (meaningless) “R” after his name. And here Christie is swooning.
Maybe even tingling.
To paraphrase Lenny Bruce, “The fat man’s a fag!”
Where have all the real men gone?(besides you, Ann Coulter)
Aren't you reeel proud of your fatboy, Annie?
Well I feel so much better now. Christie Kreme’s happiness is everything to me.
A 400 pound weeping middle-aged Springsteen fan-boy.....you can’t make this stuff up. This is what the GOP was thinking of putting on the ticket as VP ? What a joke.
