Gov. Christie To Obama And Congress: Get This Done, Americans ‘Don’t Want To Be Distracted By This Bickering’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - In a curiously presidential sounding address, New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie provided advice to Republicans and Democrats in Congress who refuse to compromise and to President Obama who has yet to put a plan in writing. Citing his own bi-partisan legislative success in New Jersey, Christie warned everyone “you can’t lead from behind” and that now was the time to get this debt negotiation complete.

“I’d encourage all of them to step up to the plate and get this done. The American people . . . they’ve got jobs to do and they don’t want to be distracted by this bickering.”
