Tonight I overheard Christie being interviewed on CNN by Piers Morgan, part of it, “as I recall,” went like this:
PM: ... now I’d like to give you, as a sleazy Republican, an opportunity to kiss up to our wonderful President Obama, if you’d care to.
Gov. C: There’s nothing I’d like better. President Obama is about perfect as far as I can see, and I’d lick his boots any time.
PM: That’s great, if only more of you sleazy Republicans would rise above politics like you just did and kiss up to President Obama, the world would be a better place. And now I’d like to say a few more words about our munificent President Obama ...
... well, “as I recall it,” you understand.
I heard it the exact same way.
As I said on another thread, I half-expect Christie to come out and endorse the Kenyan tomorrow. His support was that glowing, and he could not think of even a single positive thing to say about Mitt Romney.
People notice things like that, and in a close election, it can make a huge difference.
I think Christie is in the process of pulling another “John Roberts” on us.
