New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Monday continued his attacks on the state of play in Washington, D.C., accusing Congress of failing to reach a sequester deal that “should be pretty easy.”
“I don’t have the first damn idea of what they’re doing down there,” he said at a press conference. “So I don’t understand it. I don’t understand why they haven’t fixed it already. Seems to me it should be pretty easy to fix. Real leadership would get this fixed.”
Christie even advocated locking congressional leaders in a room — something President Obama said at a Friday press conference that he doesn’t have the authority to do (“I’m not a dictator“).
Christie also had harsh words for Obama.
“Get everybody in a room and you fix it, and you don’t let them leave until you fix it,” he said. “That’s what real leadership is; not calling a meeting two hours before the thing’s going to hit to have a photo op in the driveway of the White House. That’s not real leadership. Fix it.”
