Doing all he can to change the subject amid a number of swirling controversies, President Obama plans to return to New Jersey on Tuesday to survey recovery efforts still underway in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

In response to the planned visit, Republican Gov. Chris Christie said he will gladly welcome Obama back to his state, despite all the criticism he received when he embraced the president after the massive storm hit in late October. Many conservatives feel that cost Mitt Romney the 2012 presidential election, as CNN notes.

“If the president wants to come back here and see the progress himself, I never worry about that stuff,” Christie told NBC’s “Today Show.”

So the bromance continues, as the popular conservative web site Weasel Zippers coined it.

“The fact of the matter is he’s president of the United States and if he wants to see the people of New Jersey, I’m the governor and I’ll be here to welcome him.”

Christie’s comments come at a time when Obama is desperate for positive news coverage, and represents a big risk when thinking back to the impact “the hug” had on then-Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s aspirations for the U.S. Senate.

It is widely believed the N.J. governor is considering a 2016 presidential run, with reports earlier this month that he secretly underwent stomach surgery to lose weight only adding to the speculation.

    in my day, Christie would be called a "brown-noser" — does that still fit in today's vernacular?

    Sorry, but I cannot stand Christie anymore. I call him a pig not because of his weight, but his actions.I pray he is not really planning a run for the Presidency.
