Chris Christie and Mitt Romney—Praise of the Week
Chris Christie, New Jersey Governor, is an enigmatic and potential future leader of the GOP. I personally have a love/hate relationship with the governor. One day I think he’s great and I’d consider voting him president and other times I find him repugnantly annoying. His interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” was one of his good days. Christie didn’t follow the tired rhetoric of downplaying the significance of the first presidential debate. He boldly stated that not only would Governor Mitt Romney do well in the debate, but by the next morning the political pundits would be claiming of a “new” race.
The governor was correct in his prediction. Mitt Romney finally stepped up to the plate and exhibited the assertiveness he has so sorely missed this summer. Romney was undeniably the “victor” of the first presidential debate. Romney was prepared and energetic. The president surprisingly was “flat” in his demeanor. Everything his campaign managers had attempted him to avoid he did. He grew easily irritable and thus didn’t convey his typical cheerful self. Contrary to Al Gore’s belief, the president didn’t “lose” the debate because he hadn’t acclimated to the altitude in Denver. Give me a break!
So this week I’d like to praise Chris Christie and Mitt Romney.
*On a side note more details from BOTH candidates would be nice.
