People are starting to mention that New Jersey’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie needs to run for president pretty soon. The main reason is that he seems to be succeeding at rolling conservative policies through a Democratic legislature and state.
The other reason is that he can’t be rolled himself. What a startling contrast this guy would make on the campaign trail with the well mannered Law professor now running the country. Take a look at how President Obama and Christie handle hecklers. Check out the Obama clip first, where he is heckled on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell this past spring at a Barabara Boxer fundrasier.
Then look how Christie handles a an interruption ON BEHALF OF SOMEONE ELSE who is being heckled, California GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.
Pretty refreshing, isn’t it?
