Christie in London, on Obama:
“I think the President has shown over and over again that he’s not the most effective negotiator, whether you’re talking about the Iranian nuclear talks or whether you’re talking about his recent foray into Cuba. The president has not proven himself to be the most adept negotiator, in my opinion, on behalf of American interests.”
Let me get this straight: This failed governor, target of multiple federal investigations, crosses the Atlantic in a trip paid for by businesses getting huge subsidies from his administration – Michele Brown’s name coming up again in the money changing hands. Hisinternational experience is exactly zero, but he breaks tradition criticizing the commander in chief on foreign soil, and head fakes the reporter asking about that.
Wow. Remember the Dixie Chicks? Remember when Natalie Maines – also in London – told her audience:
“Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas.”
That was London, 2003. The year one million people took to the streets to protest the Iraq War. Biggest protest in London history. But here? Death threats. Public burning of their music. Boycotts. Plunging ticket sales. And right wing outrage that an American would criticize a president – Bush – on foreign soil.
But she was just a singer. And only about 4,000 Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died. In a war based on a lie.
Christie? Just trying to sound like a player. Head fake.
