THE SPECIAL at the White House Sub Shop could have fed President Obama, Gov. Chris Christie and Mayor Lorenzo Langford, with a little left over for a lucky Secret Service agent.
But Atlantic City's most famous eatery was swamped because of Hurricane Sandy when Obama and Christie toured the devastated coastline on Halloween. And instead of sharing a sub with the president and governor, the mayor spent several hours alone that day, waiting for the leaders inside an airport lounge and wondering if they would visit his struggling, storm-damaged resort.
Obama never visited Atlantic City, and Langford thinks Christie had something to do with it.
This is how Democrat politicians operate. Mayor Langford didn't get his minutes of fame on the television because Governor Christie didn't bring the Photo-Op-in-Chief to Atlantic City. He wanted to be standing beside the President on the national news to forward his career. Instead, the Mayor of Atlantic City wasted his day in the airport lounge straightening his tie for the cameras that never came."The White House called and said they were coming to Atlantic City, and I think the governor changed that and decided to go to Brigantine instead," Langford, 57, said during an interview with the Daily News in City Hall. "That shows how petty he is, number one. And racially insensitive, number two. And politically myopic, number three."
Of course, Langford had to throw out the race card as well.
