Well, not everyone is jumping on the “healthcare will sink Romney” bandwagon. David just sent me a note:
New Jersey governor Chris Christie had some words of praise for Mitt Romney.”Governor Romney’s speech yesterday was just the type of tone we need,” Christie said in a statement. “While folks may not agree with what he said, that type of candor is what Americans expect from a serious presidential candidate today.”
Mitt Romney earned a big political thumbs-up Friday from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who praised the former Massachusetts governor for talking straight with voters in his speech on health care…
The warm words from Christie will bring welcome relief to Romney, whose speech drew harsh reviews from other prominent conservative voices. The Wall Street Journal published back-to-back editorials Thursday and Friday blasting Romney’s record on health care and panning his speech as an ideological “daredevil act.”
But to the average Republican primary voter, Christie’s approval may matter more. The Garden State governor has become a hero to many in the GOP thanks to his reputation as a plain-spoken, principled conservative who sticks to his core beliefs.
Thanks, Governor Christie and Governor Romney for being willing to talk honestly about this tough issue.
