Speculations high over Christie’s run for Presidential nomination
Gov. Christie while addressing the Reagan Library crowd on Tuesday night focused on state's domestic and foreign policies but shortly the eager crowd flooded him with queries on his stand as a Republican hopeful of contesting the presidential elections.
In a highly predicted dialogue at the Reagan Library, Gov. Chris Christie attacked President Barack Obama by calling him a “bystander in the Oval Office”. He blamed the current administration for its inefficacy and said it’s embarrassing for the whole U.S.
When asked whether he is reconsidering his nomination for presidential elections, he requested those present to visit Politico.com to derive answers from his uploaded video.
Christie’s stand on becoming presidential hopeful not clear
Christie's reluctance on clarifying whether he would bid for 2012 presidential elections has left political analysts wondering about his real intentions in the matter.
Politico.com, more or less a reliable political website, rather created puzzlement by posting contradicting comments on different stories stating whether Christie is still running for presidential nomination or not.
News has it that many wealthy Republican donors literally wooed the governor to run for the presidential nomination.
To add to these speculations, a leading article in the New York Post on Saturday mentioned that Christie has been highly recommended by top bureaucrats to reconsider his stand on running for the presidential nomination.
Christie condemned Obama’s leadership style
At Reagan Library, Christie took to the stage at the request of former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
It was highly expected of the Governor to talk on issues like U.S. economy and national security; however he also stressed on more liberal issues like spreading out democracy worldwide.
Criticizing Obama’s leadership policy, Christie said “We watch a president who once talked about the courage of his convictions, but still has yet found the courage to lead… We watch a Congress at war with itself because they are unwilling to leave campaign style politics at the Capitol’s door.”
