Christie Says He Disagrees With Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment: Time To ‘Move On’

Source: TPM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Friday he doesn't agree with Mitt Romney's recent statement claiming President Obama won re-election because he gave voters "gifts."

On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Christie said most Republicans believe it's time to "pivot" and "move on" after the election.

"The bottom line is we lost. Now what we need to do, as leaders of our party, is pivot and get back to our jobs."

3. It's fairly clear that Christie actively dislikes Mitt Romney

It's a big club, the Romney Haters Club.

Christie has enough of a working class background to know the disdain that the Romneys feel for people like him. I think he saw a side of Romney that terrified him.

8. NJ 58, 41 for Obama. It is nice to see some of the NE Repub's be reasonable.

He's smacked down idiotic Republican nonsense before. It plays well with his constituents and I think he believes it.

13. Christie is disliked because he, in his own way, shows so much disdain

for others. He has been known to rudely call people out who are in the audience at his speeches. Horrible man in my view. Just awful. Rude and loud and just awful.

16. I sure agree with you. For same reasons. Rude, loud,

abrasive. No grace. Pandering.

4. I hope we aren't fooled again

There are Republicans like Romney who will simply enslave the poor, but then, if we aren't vigilant, we will again encounter really evil mo'fo Republicans who will kill millions just to feel their manhood.

5. Did Christie have an aneurysm or something?

Because this does not sound like the guy from the RNC.

7. It's not 2016. It's 2015! He is up for re election in a Blue State.

He is still being a complete asshole about the Health Exchange. He can seem to balance the Ass Kisser with the Right Wing Shithead!

10. ***TPM has now edited the headline/story at that link.***

The link is still the same

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/christie-says-he-disagrees-with-romneys-gifts-comment

but the revised headline is

Christie Says He Disagrees With Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment: Can’t Be ‘Divisive’ Leader

and the story now includes this paragraph:

"You can't expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive," Christie said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people and play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors. And I always think this is scapegoating after elections. When you lose, you lost. Someone asked me, why did Mitt Romney lose? That's why."


And there is now video at the link, too.
