I was recently able to catch up with Governor Chris Christie for a brief interview. While I want to be “fair and balanced,” I do worry that I need to be prepared for Christie to do a bit of sidestepping.
Governor Christie, can you talk about what happened when Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer said she would not support your candidacy for President?
Yes, I will tell you! I told her she better be careful, or I Would Bust the Windows Out Her Car.
My, I see how that certainly would make people take you quite seriously. What about the allegations that you withheld Superstorm Sandy relief funds?
My management of money is none of your business!
Governor Christie, how do you wish to address the issues of your implication in the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge?
Michael, what bridge doesn’t have troubled waters?
Governor Christie, can you talk about why you do not support marriage equality?
I am so tired of all you people–you “friends of Dorothy” people.
Governor Christie, what do you think of Speaker of the House John Boehner?
All I can say is: If only he had a brain.
Governor Christie, what would you say to those that are a bit fearful of the consequences if they do not support your presidential candidacy? Is there a justified fear of further retaliation from you?
I would tell these good people they have nothing to fear but a final countdown.
While I had many more questions, Governor Christie reported in a mumble that he was in a hurry “to get out of this place.”
I tried to chase after the governor, but he was on a plane to go and visit Vladimir Putin.
