GOP Governor Criticizes Washington Leadership During Sequestration Fight

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Governor Christie weighed in on the sequester “crisis” again today, Save Jerseyans, and his comments appeared to be a not-so-thinly-veiled swipe at President Obama’s leadership. At least that’s how I heard it.



“Real leadership would get this fixed. You get everybody in the room and you fix it, and you don’t let them leave until you fix it,” Christie told members of the press at a Jersey City presser. “That’s what real leadership is, not calling a meeting two hours before the thing’s going to hit to have a photo-op in the driveway at the White House. That’s not real leadership.”

Christie was more explicit earlier this week, telling a town hall audience that “If sequester happens Friday, in my opinion it’s the fault of the president.”

  1. Obama overplayed his hand plain and simple, if his subdued press conference on Friday was any indication. How quickly did the Administration forget about their 50 state sheets outlining outline cuts posted the day before?? Put entitlements on the table for the September debt deal once and for all.

  2. Well he certainly was impressed enough to change his mind about Medicare exchanges. I guess POTUS told the Gov. he'd let him get one free insult for folding like a cheap suit on that one.
