Skip to comments.Gov. Christie: Gingrich ‘Has Been An Embarrassment To The Party’
Posted on 01/22/2012 9:55:44 AM PST by Nachum
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on Meet the Press today to do damage control for Mitt Romney and to explain why Newt Gingrich would not be an ideal Republican nominee despite his strong victory in South Carolina last night. He claimed that Gingrichs past actions have embarrassed the Republican party, and Mitt Romney was more suited to be the nominee because of his record and how he conducted himself in office as opposed to Gingrich.
David Gregory asked Christie to explain what about Newt Gingrichs politics or his character disqualified him from being the Republican nominee against President Obama. Christie suggested that Gingrich was too much like Obama, and we dont need another legislator in the Oval Office. He reminded Gregory that Obama jumped directly from a position as a legislator to the presidency, making the argument that executive experience was vitally important for the next president to draw a stark contrast with how Obama has governed.

Gov Christie’s gluttony is an embarrassment.
Christie is a conservative by NJ standards. That is to say, not a flaming liberal.
Sayeth the rino.
Losing respect for the RINO from NJ.
Good Move: Join weight watchers!!
Awwwwww, does the godfather of illiteracy see his VP hopes flying out the window? I think so.
Shut-up Christies, you are the biggest embarrassment of all. Endorsing a raider in the hopes of future earmarks or position is not the way to go anymore.
Chris Christie drives the golf cart for the country club Republicans.
RHINO has been. Just a loud mouth with a sharp tongue.
“Chris, hand me my 5 iron.”
The supposed ‘Ethics’ violationn were largely a witch-hun/payback for Gingrich runninng the dirt on Wright who had the abusive book deal and other schemes he had used for years. I would like a good analysis of those chages and the entire history of that investigation — perhaps by a FReeper. Anyone know a good link?
Newt Gingrich should shine on the GOP and start the Tea Party.
Pot, meet kettle.
Never did like Christie. Loud mouth blow hard.
All this talk of ‘the party’ is very Communist Politburo sounding.
‘The party’ has served up Ford, Dole, Bush 41, Bush 43, and McCain. What allegiance or respect do we, including Gingrich, owe them?
Let us not forget that after Gingrich’s political assassination that the so-called GOP Congress was in competition with Monica Lewinsky for granting favors to Bill Clinton.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Chris Christie, like many “fiscal” conservatives, is nothing more than a liberal who hates paying taxes.
Newt isn’t exactly the skinniest guy in the world you know.
****David Gregory asked Christie to explain what about Newt Gingrichs politics or his character disqualified him from being the Republican nominee...****
And Christie obliged.
Newt is the only individual with character and qualifications to answer questions from the Marxist media.
We need to start a list of people who have revealed themselves to be for sale or already purchased. I’ll start:
Feel free to add more...
Been going through some of this mornings Tweets.

Well...the prediction that the establishment would start to unload on Newt is coming to pass...and pretty quick too.
And we’re supposed to lend and credence to what this fat, muzzie loving slob says?
Christie goes berserk after being criticized for appointment of Muslim judge:
Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, its crazy! he cried. The guy is an American citizen! He concluded that the Sharia Law business is just crap
and Im tried of dealing with the crazies, adding with disgust and frustration that its just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.
I didn't know they retrofitted the golf carts with the Volt's Litium Ion Batteries? :-)...
Another Bloomberg republican heard from!
King David was also an embarrassment but look at all the good that our Creator did through him.
That, is a good one.
It is fast becoming the Bloomberg wing!
The party has been acting like a bunch of socialist boot licking lemmings for decades now and this "embarrassment" is a bad thing for Newt? Hello!...ring-a-ding-ding is now a ring-tone.
George Bush Sr
Christie has thought the die was cast by the RHINO establishment and thus the reason he kept saying he was not ready. He was at least right about that.
I hope this is the start of a true anti-establishment, meaning anti-RHINO, rout. Someone said this may be the last Republican President. I certainly hope it is the first non-RHINO, non-milk toast, non-mealy mouthed, non-ankle grabbing, non-demorat lap dog and SUCCESSFUL conservative President of the modern era and first of a long succession of the same. I doubt it though, the country is too polarized and is teetering on the brink of civil war. A President who executes meaningful conservative reforms will probably kick the country over the edge. The entitlement class will not easily give up.
That’s OK. It’s true.
Everything Christie said I impute to Romney. Newt came across as classy, Romney came across as vindictive.
Poor little Mittens...
Someone should stand up and protect the poor little guy!!!
GTF out of the race Willard...
s the start of a true anti-establishment, meaning anti-RHINO, rout
I haven't completely abandoned Romney but he will need to show me he repudiates utterly the North Eastern Elites and everything they stand for.
Someone upthread said that he sees the VP slot slipping away. That would make sense.
No, Scott Garrett is a Conservative by NJ standards, Chris Christie is your typical RINO!
The ability of Barak Obama to win election over the Republican doyens is the defining embarrassment of our times.
All who side with them now risk electoral lynching at the hands of furious conservative Republicans.
Ultimately, being called “racist” is not as shameful as the ignominy of what race-baiters will make you bow down before to avoid it.
He can’t fit in a golf cart.
“Christie suggested that Gingrich was too much like Obama, and we dont need another legislator in the Oval Office.
What a laugh that is and a ridiculous statement. I would say Romney Care and Obama Care is too much like Obama. Newt has never done anything legislatively like Obama has. Come on Christie I hope you are better than that. That was pretty lame.
