HAIL MARY: Christie launches TV Ad mocking Santorum to bring down Rubio

By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog

Governor Chris Christie‘s presidential campaign continued to throw the kitchen sink at Marco Rubio on Thursday afternoon, Save Jerseyans, even as new polling out of New Hampshire suggested that the New Jerseyan’s comeback efforts had stalled.

A late-breaking CNN poll shows Christie dropping to 4% with Marco Rubio helping erode his support.

Unsurprisingly, then, the latest salvo took the form of a new ad capitalizing on the botched Rubio endorsement of Rick Santorum:

Transcript:

JOE SCARBOROUGH: What do you list as Marco Rubio’s top accomplishment that made you decide to endorse him?

RICK SANTORUM: There’s is a guy who’s been able to number one win a tough election in Florida.

SCARBOROUGH: Can you name his top accomplishment?

SANTORUM: My feeling on Marco is someone who has tremendous potential, tremendous gifts. I guess it’s hard to say there are accomplishments.

SCARBOROUGH: Name one thing he’s passed?

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: A vote?

SANTORUM: The Republicans have been in the majority for one year and one month, of which, as you know, he was running for president primarily.

SCARBOROUGH: Just one, that Marco achieved. Maybe a bill that he wrote.

BRZEZINSKI: Jeb bush ran Florida, Donald Trump built a company. Marco Rubio — finish the sentence.

SANTORUM: Can’t point to him and say “Nothing got done therefore he has no accomplishments.” This is a bogus argument.

SCARBOROUGH: All I’m asking is a simple question. List one accomplishment that Marco Rubio has achieved in four years of the United States Senate?

SANTORUM: The bottom line is – there isn’t a whole lot of accomplishments, Joe. And I just don’t think it’s a fair question.

  1. I tell my college students all the time that whenever they meet with anyone (interview, sales call, sponsorship proposal meeting, etc.) to do their homework and prepare so that they can answer ANY question thrown their way. Santorum couldn’t even answer a basic question about Rubio. LOL

  2. A friend just posted this:

    Handsome, smooth talking, minority politician.
    Hand picked by power brokers to be groomed to be President.
    Repeats what he has been told to say as well as anyone.
    First term Senator with a terrible voting attendance record.
    Media darling.
    This describes two people perfectly.

  3. Christie has the same line running for President as he did running for NJ Governor and I fell for it, At that time my husband was the Mercer Country Republican Chairman my God don’t listen to him he is a fraud.

  4. 11th Commandment anyone? Curious what Christie lists as his accomplishments. He gets up there in debates and says he is a governor, so that makes him qualified over a Senator. But what did he achieve as Governor?
