New Jersey Governor Chris Christie asks Barack Obama “What the hell are we paying you for?” Obama knew the supercommittee would fail. He wanted it to fail. The White House plan was for no success. Christie’s question is just one of the reasons why he shouldn’t be in the White House. We need these strong Republican voices, calling out this marxist President. The video and part of the transcript are below.
“I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration, about the failure of the supercommittee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved. Well then what the hell are we paying you for?” Christie said during a press conference in Camden, N.J. “It’s doomed for failure so I’m not getting involved? Well, what have you been doing, exactly?”
“In New Jersey, the reason [problems got solved] is because I called people into the room and said we’re going to solve this problem and I had people of good will on the other side who said they believed it was their obligation, regardless of party, to get done things like pension and benefit reform,” the governor said, adding, “Why the president of the United States refuses to do this is astonishing to me.”
If Obama doesn’t get his act together, he may as well go back to the Senate, Christie suggested.
“If he wanted to run for Senate again and just be 1 of a 100, I’m sure he could have gotten reelected over and over again in Illinois,” he said. “He’s the one in Washington and he’s got to get something done here. And it’s not good enough just to say, ‘Well, I’ll get it done after the election.”
Bob Beckel is on Fox with Martha McCallum saying Obama had a contentious Congress for three years! McCallum reminds him that he had a Democrat Congress for two of the three years, and I’ll chime in that during the first two years, with that Congress – he was enabled to pass some of the most egregious legislation this Nation has ever been bound by. Andrea Tantaros reminds that Obama wouldn’t touch his own Debt Commission recommendations. Cutting spending just isn’t Obama’s thing. Beckel said Obama’s reelection is “a lock.”
