Disclaimer: I’m a Rubio fan since he has brains & stage presence (usually) … which should translate to electability.
So, I was stunned that he was under-prepped for Saturday’s debate … and got steam-rolled by Christie.
Christie’s points re: accomplishments, accountability and leadership are legitimate … and certainly should have been expected.
Obviously, Marco could have handled the onslaught more effectively.
Here’s how …
My reply would have been …
Chris, I agree with you wholeheartedly leadership and accountability … and your criticisms of President Obama.
With respect to to leadership and accountability, your performance as Governor seems to mirror Obama’s as President.
Two-thirds of the people in America now think that the country is moving in the wrong direction.
According to the most recent polls , 2/3s of the people in your state think that New Jersey is moving in the wrong direction.
And, President Obama’s overall approval rating – while below 50% – is actually much higher than your your approval rating which appears to be hovering in the mid-30s.
That difference probably explains why you walked the beaches with Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
What does that say about your leadership … and what about your dismal accountability ratings.
Is that the kind of leadership and accountability that you think the country need?
