At a New Hampshire rally for Mitt Romney, Sunday, Chris Christie squared Off with heckling Occupiers :
It was a rally for Mitt Romney, but it was Chris Christie who brought the hundreds of attendees to their loudest cheers in the cavernous high school gym.
“We can no longer put up with the most pessimistic man I’ve ever seen in the Oval Office,” Christie told the crowd.
Referring to President Obama’s class warfare rhetoric, Christie said that Obama’s solution was to take “pie” from those who had a bigger “piece,” keep the bulk of it, and then give some to those with a smaller piece. In contrast to that, “what Mitt Romney believes that the size of the American piece is infinite,” Christie said.
When he was interrupted during his remarks by Occupy protesters shouting, “Christie kills jobs! Christie kill jobs!” Christie deadpanned, “Really?”
“Somebody’s going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart,” Christie rejoined from the stage as the chanting continued from a cluster in the audience. “There’s this confusion that’s out there because if she was in New Jersey … she would know that we created 60,000 new private sector jobs.”
Saying that the female protester was “blinded” by her enthusiasm for Obama, Christie continued, “And if she wasn’t so disoriented by the loss of hope and change, she’d understand that … Mitt Romney is the hope for America’s future.”
See, it’s stunning displays of charisma like that that made me want to support Chris Christie for President.
Come to think of it, he’d make an excellent Vice President, too.
As for the #OWS crowd – One would think they have become an embarrassment to most liberals, and persona non grata to Dems seeking office – but that’s assuming Dems are capable of embarrassment and good sense.
