Chris Christie and Obama seemed too cozy after Superstorm Sandy according to some Republicans.
Ann Coulter even said Chris Christie is “dead to me” via Twitter after years of supporting Chris Christie as a potential Republican presidential candidate.
But apparently the Chris Christie, Obama love fest is over. Recently, Chris Christie vetoed a bill that attempted to make New Jersey’s expansion of Medicaid eligibility permanent under Obamacare because he desires flexibility in the event things go south.
Chris Christie claims Obamacare “would add potentially hundreds of millions of dollars to state and local budgets.” At the same time Chris Christie has already signed on New Jersey to Obamacare, expanding Medicaid to the tune of $227 million in funding.
Chris Christie even says Obama “can’t figure out how to lead,” claiming the President is more concerned with ideology than “getting things done.” Chris Christie said he didn’t vote for Obama in 2012 and added: “I don’t want him to be president.”
Chris Christie even slammed the Supreme Court’s DOMA decision, saying, “I don’t think the ruling was appropriate.. I think it was wrong.” The Supreme Court’s decisions on DOMA and Prop 8 were both supported by President Obama, who had the Department of Justice discontinue its defense of DOMA.
Political commentators are saying Chris Christie is speaking out against Obama because “Christie is seeking re-election as governor this year and is considered a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016.” Otherwise, Christie’s ongoing “Stronger Than the Storm” campaign is gaining Spotify fans after Chris Christie released his Spotify summer playlist.
