Chris Christie to skip dinner with President Obama
Politico ^ | 02/21/2014 | ELIZABETH TITUS

Posted on 02/21/2014 1:14:55 PM PST by Responsibility2nd

Chris Christie won’t dine at the White House on his swing through Washington this weekend.

The New Jersey governor is set to leave town Sunday morning, his office confirmed, before a Sunday night White House dinner traditionally attended by governors of both parties during the annual National Governors Association meeting.

Christie sat next to first lady Michelle Obama at last year’s dinner, and drew heat from some Republicans for famously embracing President Barack Obama just days before the presidential election in 2012 as the men surveyed Superstorm Sandy damage in New Jersey.

The Republican’s schedule is under particular scrutiny this year not just because he is a likely presidential contender in 2016 but because of the traffic scandal dogging him back home.

Between Christie and Moochie, there wouldn’t have been enough to go around.

Christie (Party: Gravy On Potatoes) is avoiding another unfortunate photo op.

Skip dinner with Obama in favor of joining him directly in bed.

“Between Christie and Moochie, there wouldn’t have been enough to go around.”

LOL. I’ll bet Christie cut in on the rolls basket and emptied it before Moochie got her hand in it. Then Moochie refused to pass the gravy and maintained a blockade for the rest of the meal. Feuds like that don’t die easily.

IMHO...Not being at this affair is not a snub at Obama...it's a snub at the party. More repub governmors than dem.

He knows the party won't support him after the stunt he pulled.

It was embarrasing the last time they White House had an all you can eat buffet and the Secret Service had to say "No, that is all you can eat".

Stolen from John Pinette routine

Yeah, for Fatboy to skip dinner with anybody it must be felt really, really bad to be seen rubbing elbows with Barry again.

But he may be skipping dinner now in order to lose weight so that he can appear presentable in 2016.

My wife watched him during the hurricane right before the and when he praised Obama she called it an endorsement of Obama’s re-election.

Christie made his bed then for sure.

Hey Chris, it is too late for you. Your RINO BS did not work as planned. You thought kissing Obama’s butt would work for you but the Dems showed you the real meaning of dirty politics. Your stupid Ft. Lee lane closure game has come back to haunt you by the masters of dirty tricks, the Democrat Party. LOL Bye, bye, Chrisie.

He was planning to go to the dinner, but he heard at the last minute that Burger King was running a sale on cheeseburgers.

“No, that is all you can eat”.

That was really funny. Thanks for the link to the Jon Pinette video.
