Another Chris Christie Fumble

Chris Christie hasn’t had much to smile about over the last couple years — eight credit downgrades, a massive ongoing traffic scandal, falling approval ratings, and a slew of negative headlines about his volatile temper. But the controversial governor finally had a moment of bliss yesterday, as he left New Jersey for Dallas to watch his beloved Cowboys eke out a victory in the NFL playoffs. Unfortunately for Christie, his jump for joy last evening quickly turned into a morning of bad press. It seems a Jerry Jones bro-hug is about the only love Chris Christie is seeing these days.

Check out the twitter storm that Christie’s antics invited, as well the bevvy of stories below:

“The New York Giants play their games in New Jersey. Philadelphia, home of the Eagles, is across the bridge from New Jersey.
