Politico - Gov. Chris Christie on Monday tore into President Barack Obama in the aftermath of the supercommittee’s failure to reach an agreement on debt reduction last week, asking the president, “What the hell are we paying you for?”
Calling Obama “a bystander in the Oval Office,” the outspoken New Jersey governor said the White House spent the weekend tossing out a whole lot of “spin” about the supercommittee’s inability to come to an agreement before the Nov. 23 deadline.
“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?”
Blog author's comments - Good questions from Christie -- but those of us who have watched Obama for nearly three years -- know the answers. Obama is not qualified to be the President. Even as a member of the Senate he voted present much of the time.
Obama and his administration are the major reason for the problems we now have. He would rather have an excuse than a solution. He does not want an agreement with the Republicans. He needs something to run on for 2012. Let us not forget the GOP has controlled the House for less than a year.
