Governor Christie clearly focuses on one thing and one thing only. And that thing is…..

From a MSN News story on January 17:
Christie himself, meanwhile, gave a speech at an event outside those at the State House for the first time in more than a week, telling people in a community devastated by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 that storm recovery remains his top priority. 
"I am focused as completely this morning as I was when I woke up on the morning of Oct. 30, 2012, and nothing will distract me from getting the job done," he said. "Nothing."
And from a New York Times article by Kate Zernike that appeared the previous day:
As the New Jersey Assembly voted unanimously on Thursday to authorize an investigation into abuses of power by Gov. Chris Christie’s administration, Mr. Christie seemed to be maneuvering against the inquiry, hiring a high-powered defense lawyer and resisting questions about whether he would cooperate with the Legislature’s efforts.
When a man lawyers up, you can be pretty sure he isn't focusing on the ants in his picnic basket. Or, to futz with an old saying, nothing focuses a man’s mind so much as the prospect of his own indictment.  Trust this cranky commentator, that prospect of indictment is stronger than the storm.

How sweet it is!
