Chris Christie Wonders “What The Hell We’re Paying (Obama) For”

The governor unloads on the Anointed One

(Politico) Gov. Chris Christie on Monday tore into President Barack Obama in the aftermath of the supercommittee’s failure to reach an agreement on debt reduction last week, asking the president, “What the hell are we paying you for?”

Calling Obama “a bystander in the Oval Office,” the outspoken New Jersey governor said the White House spent the weekend tossing out a whole lot of “spin” about the supercommittee’s inability to come to an agreement before the Nov. 23 deadline.

“I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration, about the failure of the supercommittee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved. Well then what the hell are we paying you for?” Christie said during a press conference in Camden, N.J. “It’s doomed for failure so I’m not getting involved? Well, what have you been doing, exactly?”

Even though he said both parties deserve blame for talking at each other instead of talking with each other, Christie ultimately maintained that the buck stops with the nation’s highest in command and pointed to his own governance in the Garden State as a model for effective leadership.

Being a bystander and sometimes cheerleader is Obama’s modus operandi. Always has been. Remember, this is the elected politician who tended to vote “present” anytime there was a mildly difficult vote. He outsourced the Stimulus and American Health Destruction Act to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Sure, he has hand in a few things, such as authorizing the raid on Osama Bin Laden, which I personally give him a lot of credit for, as it was a gutsy call. He’s, for all intent purposes, kept a moratorium on Gulf of Mexico drilling. He makes sure that no one gets laid off at the Andrews Air Force base golf course.

Yet, we are talking about the debt deal, and PINO (President In Name Only) Obama was missing in the substance. Mostly what he did was his normal schtick of insulting Republicans and Conservatives, putting the blame on them. Hence, PINO. He’s simply the leader of the Democrat Party.

But, to answer Christie, we’re apparently paying Obama to Occupy the White House, and a nearby golf course.
