Cavuto on Christie no tax pledge: Is this like a Bush moment?

Chris Christie appeared yesterday on Your World with Neil Cavuto on FoxNews. They opened the segment showing compilation of the ads that have been run against Christie. Cavuto focused on the advertising disparity between the campaigns saying Christie was campaigning on facebook and twitter. Christie said they conserved their money over the summer and thats why there was such a difference.

There was this exchange:

Cavuto- Would you rule out ever raising them?

Christie- I will not raise taxes as Governor

Cavuto- Is this like a Bush moment?

Christie- Well… it’s a Christie moment.
