Chris Christie to Obama: Stop Lying Mr. President. (updated)
This is a great segment. You will need to follow the link to watch the video but it is worth the 2 minutes I promise. Christie calls the President a liar. We all know this to be true but to watch the genuine shock on George Snuffleupagus‘ face. Priceless.
Christie told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week:
Obama ad: …[Romney] doubled down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place.
Stephanopoulos: If you were on the stage Wednesday night, how would you respond to that.
Christie: Stop lying, Mr. President.
Christie: Yeah, that’s what I’d say.
Stephanopoulos: What’s the lie there?
Christie: Governor Romney’s not talking about tax cuts for the wealthy. In fact, what he said is that the wealthy will pay just as much under a Romney administration as they pay today.
Stephanopoulos: But their tax rate will go down into the 20s.
Christie: Right, their tax rate will go down, but they will lose deductions and other loopholes that will have them paying the same. That’s what Governor Romney’s plan is. And so what I’d say is–you know, I love those ads. I mean, you know, the president gets to say things like: “A million new manufacturing jobs.” Well, how, Mr. President? We’re still waiting. “Four trillion dollar reduction in the debt.” Really, Mr. President? How? Simpson-Bowles? You haven’t endorsed your own plan. Nor has he come forward with a plan….
In the same article, Newt follows up with a similar line over the embassy attacks
so I don’t know whether I feel more comfortable knowing that the administration was incompetent and lied to us, or I feel more comfortable knowing that the intelligence community was totally out of touch. My hunch is the intelligence community was not out of touch. The ambassador’s own diary, apparently, indicates that he was worried about being targeted for death.
