Skip to comments.On ‘Late Night,’ Christie Rolls Eyes at Prospect of Palin Presidency
Posted on 11/23/2010 10:20:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Faced with the prospect of a President Sarah Palin, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican partys darling from another coast, shook his head and rolled his eyes.
I dont know, but its an amazing world, he said to Jimmy Fallon during a taping of Tuesdays Late Night show.
Christie brought his sharp tongue to the talk show Tuesday after the two traded barbs over Twitter when the Republican governor canceled a long-planned Hudson River train tunnel.
Fallon had joked that New Yorkers would now have to get to New Jersey as they usually do by accident.
You think its funny, Jimmy? Christie challenged Fallon on the show, which airs at 12:35 a.m. You know what we do to people like that in Jersey?
Christie, known by Trenton insiders for his wit and occasionally foul language, turned serious and said New Jersey shouldnt have to pay for the tunnel while New York stands idly by.
Theres nothing New Jersey hates more than getting screwed by New York, he said....

Politicians, yes, people, no.
Or he might just be tired of 2012 election questions when there’s so much to do right now. Just an alternative thought, though.
Cristie and Romney have become the two the anti-Palin ppl have put their hopes in, to stop Palin
Yes, they’d like nothing better than to start a Republican civil war.
How many times foes Christie have to say he’s not running. Let him finish his job,
Christie...? Pro choice, no?
christie is pro amnesty, pro castle, pro global warming. The only thing he’s good at is the fiscal side and a fighter
He could have been rolling his eyes at the silliness of the moron asking the question of him.
The printed word often doesn't accurately portray the context in which statements were made, nor does it convey the setting, mood, body language, tone of voice, etc.
Then again, maybe Gov Christie was expressing incredulity at the question. Could be - but watch what happens as soon as the Sarah Express takes off. Lots of weasely politicians and journOlists will act as though they've never had a single cross word for her.
“Is the whole Northeast defective?”
You nailed that one spot on.
A big bag of a$$holes.
I know, I’m here.
And, don’t forget pro cap and trade also.....
I don't let journalists make judgments for me
Doesn’t read like he refudiated the idea....
There are many of us behind enemy lines. It's getting so bad up here that some of the so called conservative talk show hosts are turning into schmucks. Jay Severin, a big Romney supporter, rips Sarah Palin every chance he gets, and he's been trashing Bristol almost daily, and he has a lot of influence with the independents in this state. Between the Liberals and conservatives like him, there's no way she's going to take this state, but that was a given anyway.
Settle down there Christie, but you did just blow your chance at speaking at the 2012 GOP Convention.
