Christie Unofficially Launches 2016 Campaign by Ripping Paul, Jindal
He should be able to beat Hillary in the Democrat primary.
Check it out:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the next incarnation of a GOP frontrunning presidential candidate who is anything but hard-line on principle, told activists and GOP operatives at a Republican National Committee luncheon on Thursday that his “job was to win.” Christie pontificated:
We are not a debating society. We are a political operation that needs to win. My job is to win. I believe my job is to win. Our job is not to be college professors.
Christie has already criticized Rand Paul, saying Paul’s libertarinan positions were dangerous. At Thursday’s luncheon, he took a swipe at Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who recently said, ”We’ve got to stop being the stupid party. It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults.” Christie responded:
I’m not going to be one of these people who goes and calls our party stupid. We need to stop navel gazing. There’s nothing wrong with our principles. We need to focus on winning again. There’s too much at stake for this to be an academic exercise. We need to win and govern with authority and courage.”
ABCNews offered the usual litany of supporters for a “moderate” candidate, as well as stating, “The speech was very well-received, according to people leaving the luncheon.”
