Chris Christie calls Newt Gingrich an embarrassment to the (GOP) party
As if Ann Coulter’s crack about Newt Gingrich’s “snarky comments” weren’t ironic enough, the guy who’s been the brunt of the media’s “fat jokes” called Newt Gingrich an embarrassment to the (GOP) party. While shilling for Mittens on NBC’s Meet the Press, Christie sited Gingrich’s fine while in Congress as the reason why he’s an “embarrassment” to the party.
“We need an executive, someone who both in the private sector and as a governor understands how to bring people together and use executive power,” Christie said. “The Speaker simply doesn’t have that experience, he’s never run anything.”
“We all know the record. I mean, he was run out of the speakership of his own party, he was fined $300,000 for ethics violations,” Christie said. “This is a guy who has had a very difficult political career at times and has been an embarrassment to the party.”
