On Friday in Virginia, Chris Christie went after Barack Obama in epic fashion. Here is one of the high points:
You’ve been living inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the last four years. If you don’t think you can change Washington from inside the White House let’s give you the plane ticket back to Chicago you’ve earned. … If he believes that, then what the hell is he doing asking for another four years?
Christie’s attacks on Obama’s leadership strike me as devastating. One of the reasons why independents are deserting Obama in droves, I believe, is that they have concluded he simply isn’t a leader.
