NJ Gov Christie Addresses Protesters at New Hampshire Rally on Eve of Primary

Mitt Romney

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is probably the most high-profile of Mitt Romney’s political supporters. This week Christie was once again there, helping in Romney’s campaign for the Republican Party’s endorsement for presidential candidate, in New Hampshire, where the next primary is due to take place this Tuesday, January 10th.

Confronting Protesters

Christie and Romney were together at a campaign rally at a high school in Exeter, where they were forced to confront a group of protestors, which seems to have turned into a regular occurrence at Christie-Romney events in this New England state.

Obama as Pessimist

Discussing the merits of President Obama, the candidate any Republican nominee will have to beat, Christie said that the president was the “most pessimistic man I’ve ever seen,” and accused Obama of “faking” anger so that, in an act that could only be called cynical, the anger the American people are feeling right now will be redirected at the Republicans.

“I have a suggestion for the president: He doesn’t do angry well,” Christie said. “He understands that the American people are angry and they’re scared and they’re worried about the future. So he’s decided, in the most cynical reelection strategy that you could ever think of, that he doesn’t care if you’re angry, he just wants you to be angry at somebody else.”

Killing Jobs?

The protestors chanted “Mitt kills jobs” during the speech of Mitt Romney, and switched to chanting “Christie kills jobs” when Christie was speaking.

“This is the type of disoriented anger your cynicism and your division is causing in our country,” Christie said, referring to Obama. “Bring our country together; stop dividing us.”
