Wow, I can't believe Chis Christie slammed Mitt Romney. He won't be VP now.

    "We shouldn't be listening to political consultants whispering in our ears, 'Say as little as possible,' we shouldn't be listening to those voices that say, 'Just use the party doctrine and don't stray.' We should be telling people how we think and how we feel and let them judge us up or down," Christie said. "You can't lead by being a mystery. You can't lead by being an enigma. You can't lead by being aloof. You can't lead by being programmed. I think you have to lead by being yourself and who you are and then people will trust you."

    Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, has faced criticism throughout his career for being a political opportunist lacking core principles. He currently opposes gay marriage, supports pro-life movements, and is an advocate for Second Amendment rights, stances he did not hold during his 1994 Senate campaign or his time as Masssachusetts governor.

    Perhaps Romney's most glaring reversal has been his stance on requiring individuals to purchase health insurance, a key portion of the health care reform law he passed in Massachusetts and touted as a model for national expansion. He now opposes the same mandate in President Obama's law.

    Obviously he will never be VP.

    "Programmed"?

    He definitely wasn't talking about Obama.

    You can say lots of things about Obama..but programmed ain't one of them.

    Really. Obama has made the left angry by extending the Bush tax cuts. By expanding gun rights. By not fighting for the public option. By not slamming Republicans. By making nearly half the stimulus tax cuts. A whole slew of things.

    wow this is not paying attention christie doesnt care what people think. hes done it on his own he doesnt need romney and if he passed on being president hes passing on being VP or else hed have it by now.

    most likely he was talking about a certain democrat but even if he was talking romney he endorsed romney i believe so hes just saying what he believes.

    The Teleprompter thing is so yesterday.

    No one refers to Obama as a robot.

    Romney?

    :badgrin:

    In any case..he's not going to be giving helpful hints to the opposition. He still wants Romney to win. That's why he's telling him to "be himself"...

    Which..is quite impossible..by the way.

    Lol, Obamabots.... What happens when Obama does not have a script in front of him that someone else wrote? Should we get the video?

    As for the OP. For this to be an attack of Mitt wouldn't he have to you, mention his name? It sounded like it was just advice to the voters and the people we vote for...

    I agree with you here. Christie surprised me the first time when he appointed a Muslim judge to the bench to the wails and gnashing of the Tea Party.

    That was a remarkably brave and independent thing to do.

    I might add..Liberal.

    You really really really can't be honest about Obama can you? Remember how out of touch and retarded the Bush-bots sounded, that's you today, as an Obama-bot.
