Chris Christie blasts ‘know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers’
Boston Globe ^ | November 6, 2012 | By Callum Borchers

Posted on 11/06/2012 4:04:36 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed the “know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers” who in a Huffington Post story on Monday accused him of snubbing Mitt Romney by skipping Sunday’s rally in Pennsylvania.

Christie, a vocal backer of Romney, said during a press conference that he told the Republican presidential nominee before Hurricane Sandy hit that he would likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign.

“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,’ ” Christie recalled. “And he said to me, ‘Chris, of course. That’s what you have to do. Do your job. Don’t worry about me. I’ll take care of things.’ So 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.”

TOOL.

Christie is only digging himself a deeper hole be buried in when the next election comes. Stabbing supporters in the back and pandering to Obama is NOT the way to get re-elected.

Screw you, fat boy. You managed to have plenty of time to hold Obama's hand as he toured your state looking presidential and bipartisan. You're a schemer, and you put yourself first, rather than your party and your country.

By the way, is there no LIVE thread tonight? The site seems to be doing fine, but where is everybody?

As a Republican, he is dead to me.
If Obama wins, the blame will be placed fairly at his feet.

It’s all about Christie, for Christie. Otherwise he would have held his tongue until the election is decided.

Remember, the ONLY reason we like Christie is that he bad mouths people we think deserve bad mouthing.

Not a really good foundation for a long term relationship.

Gas bag Crispy Creme needs to STFU after his hugging & sucking on odongo like he was a popsicle or something.
He should just sign on as a Rat and be done with it.

Christie needs to quit running his mouth on election day.

He should have had the smarts to be less “public” about his gushing for Obama in an effort to get aide. Just going out with him would have been enough.

He is not showing very good political savy in the least...and its is hurting not only him, but the country as well.

He should wait until afterwrds to address these grievances with Romney’s staff, and should have waited until Obama actually did something more than a photo op to gush all over him.

What is his problem? Does he have to say this stuff now, in the waning hours of an important election? Can’t he stifle himself for just a day if he has to keep it going? And doesn’t he have other things to be worrying about, like crying for Bruce Springsteen?

Mitt has been most courteous and gracious toward Christie. I doubt it was “Romney staffers”; it’s more likely just us Republican voters who think Christie has been overly kissy-face toward Obama. A simple “thank you, Mr. President” would have sufficed, and not so much photo-ops and huggy effusive bragging on a President who has not done anything but CAMPAIGN in the face of big crises; not a darn thing better or more than President Bush did in Katrina. I hope Christie will just announce that he’s seen the Democrat light like the RINO’s usually do - and be done with it.

While I'm on record at being quite steamed and a little nauseated by Christie's behavior--

HIS STATE IS A DISASTER AREA. HE'S GOT ANOTHER STORM COMING. HIS STATE IS NOT IN PLAY.

It is not reasonable to expect a lot of campaigning out of him!

(And why cry over a stupid, effeminate rock stat, Chris? Ewwwww)

“Christie, a vocal backer of Romney. . .”

But an ACTUAL backer of Bronco.

If I was to choose a word to describe Christie it would be “disgruntled.” He’s off the deep end.

Christie didn't have to endlessly praise Obama nor go on a romantic walk with the communist Muslim Obama. Christie didn't even have to acknowledge Obama. Liberal Bloomberg didn't even allow Obama into new york so Christie didn't have to do anything at all much less his October surprise. Christie and Obama 2 pos

The only reason he was nice to Obama was to get in with Springstein. It’s shallow but it’s the way I see it. It’s also a way to keep obamamedia off his back.

Christie was off the Romney campaign trial.

He decided to hit the campaign trial with 0bama, and his praise was both effusive and embarrassing. What a RINO!

Thing is, Palin actually had cause for complaint and none were heard until well after the election. Christie’s popping off while the vote is still ongoing and the accuracy of his statements is yet to be seen.

Now, who’s the loose cannon again, lol?
