I don’t think the Romney campaign will be happy with their top surrogate calling an Obama ad a “great ad,” and saying it looks nice and sounds nice. What Christie should have said was that this ad was the worst thing he has even seen in his life. He should have been outraged by it. Instead of defending Romney, he tried to advance his own agenda and stature within the Republican Party by calling Obama liar. Chris Christie was more interesting in advancing his own ambitions than helping Mitt Romney save his campaign. It was bizarre that Christie would lend credibility to the ad by praising it in any way, unless he had his own motives in mind.
Since Gov. Christie brought up substance, it seems that there are people within the Romney campaign who disagree with him about the Republican nominee’s plan to cut taxes on millionaires and billionaires.
While Christie was on ABC telling the world that Romney won’t cut taxes for the rich, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was telling Fox News that Mitt Romney is going to cut taxes for everyone. Paul Ryan told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that, “The cut in tax rates is lower all Americans tax rates by twenty percent.”
It appears that no one associated with the Republican ticket actually knows what is in the Romney tax plan, so let’s see what the candidate has to say.
In February, Mitt Romney wrote in The Wall Street Journal, “First, I will make an across-the-board, 20% reduction in marginal individual income tax rates. This bold stroke reduces the tax on the next dollar of income earned by all taxpayers. It also reduces tax rates for the many businesses that pay at individual rates and employ the majority of private-sector American workers, thus driving significant increases in hiring and wages.”
After his keynote speech at the Republican convention, it was pretty obvious that Chris Christie wants Romney to lose so that he can run in 2016. Christie has been spending time in Iowa laying the groundwork for 2016. The New Jersey governor wants to look like a good party man by supporting Romney, but his actions like barely mentioning Romney at the convention and not very subtly praising Obama’s anti-Romney ad tell a different tale.
Chris Christie is now going on television and making stuff up for Romney while praising his opponent’s advertising against him.
