Chris Christie won’t dine at the White House on his swing through Washington this weekend.

 

The New Jersey governor is set to leave town Sunday morning, his office confirmed, before a Sunday night White House dinner traditionally attended by governors of both parties during the annual National Governors Association meeting.

 

Christie sat next to first lady Michelle Obama at last year’s dinner, and drew heat from some Republicans for famously embracing President Barack Obama just days before the presidential election in 2012 as the men surveyed Superstorm Sandy damage in New Jersey.

The Republican’s schedule is under particular scrutiny this year not just because he is a likely presidential contender in 2016 but because of the traffic scandal dogging him back home.

 

Christie has answered some media questions about the scandal and engaged with constituents, including at a town hall-style event on Thursday, but other questions about it remain unanswered while state and federal investigations continue. Christie has denied any personal involvement in the scandal.

Describing Christie’s weekend schedule, spokesman Colin Reed said Christie would spend the rest of Sunday celebrating his daughter’s 18th birthday and getting ready for a budget speech on Tuesday.

 

The spokesman said Christie would participate in the opening session of the NGA on Saturday, which is open to the press, and attend a governors-only lunch, as well as events for the Republican Governors Association, which Christie leads.

 

Thank you POLITICO.

Weekly Address: Time to Lift the Minimum Wage and Give America a Raise

February 22, 2014 | 2:50 |Public Domain

 

In this week’s address, President Obama says this is a year of action, and he will do everything he can to restore opportunity for all. The President already lifted the wages for federal contract workers, and he calls on the American people to tell Congress to finish the job by boosting the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10 and give America a raise.

En el mensaje de esta semana, Elmy Bermejo, la Directora de Asuntos Intergubernamentales del Departamento de Trabajo discutió la importancia de aumentar el salario mínimo para los trabajadores estadounidenses. El Presidente cree que aquí en los Estados Unidos, nadie que trabaje duro debería vivir en la pobreza. Y todos los que trabajan duro deberían tener la oportunidad de salir adelante.

President Obama called Russian President Vladimir Putin today to discuss Ukraine and a range of other global issues.  On Ukraine, they exchanged views on the need to implement quickly the political agreement reached today in Kyiv, the importance of stabilizing the economic situation and undertaking necessary reforms, and the need for all sides to refrain from further violence.  They also spoke about the situation in Syria, including the importance of efforts to advance a political solution, concerns over the humanitarian crisis and the necessity of a strong UN Security Council resolution on the issue, and the need for the Assad regime to adhere to its commitment to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons program.  In addition, they discussed U.S.-Russian cooperation in the P5+1 process on Iran.  The President also congratulated Russia on its hosting of the Olympic games.

  2. Everytime I see that picture of Christie/Schultz, I freaking laugh so hard that I cry! Thanks for that!
    PS I tried to comment on the license plate post, and it didn’t go through. I am from a border state on the Mason Dixson line. In my town there were houses which helped slaves when they crossed the Ohio. The basements and tunnels they had to live in were awful, until they could be transported to the North for refuge. I think my State should have “We loved ALL people – Underground Railroad State” When will people love instead of hate?
    Lots of love, Emily

    • People will never love instead of hate, Ms. Emily/ It is much easier to hate than to love because love can sometimes take work & effort. Hating eats a person up from the inside out but love is a lot harder to achieve. I love when you comment. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Christie needs to skip a LOT of dinners!
