Christie vs. Romney

Does beg the question of Christie's future in the GOP going forward...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-staffers.html

Chris Christie lashes out at 'know-nothing disgruntled Romney staffers' who criticised him for refusing to attend campaign rally with Mitt after Hurricane Sandy
By Hugo Gye
PUBLISHED: 16:23 EST, 6 November 2012

Chris Christie has been under fire from Republican insiders ever since he he performed a U-turn and started praising Barack Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy last week.

And now the governor of New Jersey has lashed out at anonymous aides to Mitt Romney who have criticised him for refusing to attend fundraising events for the GOP presidential candidate.

The outspoken figure, a strong supporter of Romney over the past year, described his critics as 'know-nothing, disgruntled Romney supporters' who did not respect the duty he owed to the people of his state.

Yesterday it was revealed that Christie had been asked to appear with Romney at a campaign event in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, just 20 minutes away from the New Jersey state capital, Trenton.

The governor refused, leading to criticism from anonymous aides to the presidential candidate, one of whom said, 'You can't tell me he couldn't have gone over there for a night rally.'

At a press conference today, Christie said that he told Romney before Sandy hit that he would be unable to continue campaigning 'if the storm landed as predicted'.

He continued: 'I said to him, "Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it's going to, I'm off the campaign trail from here to Election Day."

'And he said to me, "Chris, of course. Do your job, don't worry about me. I'll take care of things."'

Christie did not blame Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, for the criticism of him, saying: 'He's been a governor - he knows.'

Instead, he added: 'All this other noise, I think, is coming from know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers who, you know, don't like the fact that I said nice things about the president of the United States. Well, that's too bad for them.'

Christie accompanied Obama on a tour of the Jersey Shore in the aftermath of the devastating storm, and publicly thanked the President for the attention he has paid to the region affected by Sandy.

He lashed out whenever he was asked about the storm's political impact, and several times insisted he no longer wanted to be involved in the run-up to the election.

Christie's sudden disavowal of electoral politics came as something of a surprise, as he had been one of Romney's most vocal and pugnacious supporters ever since he first endorsed him in October 2011.

He has confirmed that he still plans to vote for the Republican candidate, and said in Tuesday's press conference that he would have continued to campaign for him if Sandy had not hit his state so badly.

'If it missed us, I would have been happy to go out on the road and help him,' Christie said. 'But it didn't.'

For his part, Romney lavished praise on the New Jersey governor for his hard work helping to restore the state.

During the Pennsylvania rally, he said Christie was 'giving it all of his heart and his passion to help the people of his state', adding: 'We appreciate his hard work. Thank you, governor.'

Bloated bodies for bloated govt.

Also, what people need to understand is governors have to balance their budgets. They can't print money.

There are plenty of folks out there who believe in fiscal conservatism but find the current social policies of the GOP so offensive that they won't vote for them. For years the GOP was able to count on people becoming more conservative as they got older...this generation approaching 40 years old isn't following that old trend on the social issues.
No he isn't. He just doesn't have a printing press like other governors. How will he govern on fiscal matters with a Bernanke and the treasury printing money is what remains unseen.

And it won't happen either. Really we need a fiscally conservative, socially normal party. I'd be in with that. But no way in hell a republican gets my vote with what they have morphed themselves into, says the lifetime registered republican.

He's a ****ing moron, no thanks. It really means a lot coming from someone who voted for Obama in 2008.

Nope honestly I would rather have had Obama than Romney. America will see the error in their ways by 2016, all the GOP has to do is put up a true conservative.

Christie has a real shot in 2016. He reformed a corrupt state and hit the unions hard right where they needed. I think he needs to lose about a hundy to be considered serious.

I was never a Christie fan, but as Direckshun pointed out, he's dead to me now in the same way that John McCain and Todd Akin were (meaning that if he's nominated to run against an unacceptable democrat, I'll vote for him unenthusiastically).
