"It erased the blackboard. Absent Sandy, the speech would be totally different. But once Sandy came, I can't imagine that there's anything else that's relevant as governor to talk about."
Ok, some may not agree with that. But he can have that opinion. Until he comes up with this nonsense last night on a taping with Steve Audubato:
In the video clip, he says:
"[President Obama] executed very well on leadership during the storm. That doesn't in any way change my view of his failure to lead in the first three years of his administration on a whole wide variety of issues."
Talk about a different standard. So the President can be held accountable for what happened before, but Christie can't? Oh come on. As Rosi noted in her diary, here is what Senate Democrats had to say about the situation:
"Apparently, the governor does not feel that 9.6 percent unemployment, the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation, a shrinking middle class, or an increasing poverty rate are relevant. Perhaps he should look in the mirror if he wants to attack someone for their "failure to lead in the first three years of his administration on a whole wide variety of issues."
It seemed like Governor Cuomo in New York was able to walk and chew gum with his State of the State yesterday, but Christie seems to be stuck in his own hypocrisy and as Assemblywoman Watson Coleman noted, was only able to give a state of the storm. Talk about hypocrisy.
