New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday dubbed Mitt Romney’s showing in South Carolina “clearly disappointing,” but quickly turned his focus to Newt Gingrich, saying he has been “an embarrassment to the party.”No, all Romney has done is lose...several times. Losing can be pretty embarrassing too.
Christie, a key Romney surrogate in his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, blasted Gingrich on NBC's "Meet the Press" for his ethics violation fine and losing the speakership in the House, saying that “sometimes past is prologue.”
“Newt Gingrich has embarrassed the party over time. Whether he'll do it again in the future I don't know, but Gov. Romney never has,” Christie said on NBC's “Meet the Press.”
Oh, and he's run for Senate as a liberal Republican. And then run for president...twice...as a moderate...then conservative.
The GOP has got to get back to Reagan's 11th commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. We can't cannibalize our own candidates and then expect them to win in a general election.
This is a Chris Christie lesson in government that I hope others won't follow.
