Political Compromise Done Right and Done Badly: Christie vs. Obama

December 10, 2010

Watch these two clips of President Obama and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Both talk about compromises they have made. Obama is angry, negative, thin-skinned and already attacks the Republican he made a deal with:

And here is Chris Christie announcing a compromise with a Democrat legislature in his quest to return New Jersey to fiscal sanity. He is confident and positive about what was accomplished and has stuck to his principles and magnanimous to his political opponents who stand beside him as he announces their achievement.

What a contrast in leadership. No wonder Democrats are afraid of Chris Christie. The governor has been adamant that he will not be a candidate for president and there is no reason to doubt his sincerity. New Jersey’s gain, America’s loss.
