"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. Gov. Chris Christie Criticizes Mitt Romney without naming him (usnews.com) Obviously he will never be VP.
