NJ Gov. Chris Christie Swings at Obama’s Inexperience: “I’m Not Arrogant Enough to Believe That After One Year As Governor I Am Ready to Be President”
Batter, batter, batter … swing batter!!!
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stated on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that he was once again not going to run for President in 2012. Even though a recent Zogby poll had Christie ahead of Obama in a hypothetical match up, Christie once again said that his duty was to the people of the Gardenstate. When further pressed by Chris Wallace as to why he would not run for President in 2012, Christie made the following not so underhanded slap at President Obama and his lack of experience … “I’m not arrogant enough to believe that after one year as governor I am ready to be President”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) brushed off a Zogby poll from earlier this month that showed him leading a pack of hypothetical GOP 2012 contenders, adamantly stressing that’s not in his plans.
“The president can rest easy because the only guy who beats him in that poll isn’t running,” Christie said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I have a commitment to my state,” he said, adding that he’d only been governor for a year and New Jersey’s problems still need fixing.
“You have to believe in your heart that you’re personally ready to be president and I’m not there,” Christie said. “I am not arrogant enough to believe that after one year as governor … that I am ready to be president of the United States.”
“So I’m not going to run,” the governor said.
It is too bad that Obama did not have the same set of principles. Imagine the arrogance of an individual who had less than a one term as a US Senator thinking that they were Presidential material. Since the outset of his administration, Obama has been over his head.
