NJ Govenor Christie Rips Obama Over Deficit Talks: 'What The Hell Are We Paying You For?'

Published:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ripped President Obama for the failure of the debt supercommittee, calling the president "a bystander in the Oval Office" in comments Monday.

“I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration, about the failure of the supercommittee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved. Well, then what the hell are we paying you for?” Christie said in Camden, N.J. " 'It’s doomed for failure, so I’m not getting involved'? Well, what have you been doing, exactly?”

Christie was contrasting the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements, saying both stemmed from "anger" with government's inability to respond to the financial crisis. But while Christie said "both parties deserve blame for what's going on in Washington, D.C.," he pointed the finger squarely at Obama for failing to strike a budget deal.

 “Why the president of the United States refuses to do this is astonishing to me. If he wanted to run for Senate again and just be one of a hundred, I’m sure he could have gotten reelected over and over again in Illinois,” Christie said. “He’s the one in Washington, and he’s got to get something done here. And it’s not good enough just to say, ‘Well, I’ll get it done after the election.'"

Christie said that the template for fixing budget deficits existed at the state level, where balanced-budget requirements and divided governments often force governors and state legislatures to compromise.

"In New Jersey, the reason why they got done is because I called people into the room and said we’re going to solve this problem and I had people of good will on the other side who said they believed it was their obligation, regardless of party, to get done things like pension and benefit reform,” Christie said.

The popular and outspoken New Jersey governor has endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination for president.

The only thing that is going to save Pres Obama when he leaves office is presidental records being sealed. And you may see more sealed than what is currently allowed by law.

Well I knew this one would be controversial but really no need to attack Christie's physical appearance.   Christie is well aware that his weight is an easy target for criticism. Let's look at the real issue here:

Simply put - this is the kind of story that makes Chris Christie the darling of the Republican Party - He doesn't mix words - says just what people wanna hear. But there is a big difference between running the State of New Jersey and trying to get anything done in Washington. Christie can call everyone into a room and say let's get this done but that will never work in Washington because, at this point, the Republicans have no respect for Obama and they don't want to work with him on anything. They've already made him a lame duck president and are just waiting for their candidate to win the election.

They will look at him like the stupid looking lard he is.He has done nothing but made it very hard for teachers,state worker and people as a whole in Jersey, he will not be miss.I will be elated for my family.
