Want an honest opinion? Try the Governor of New Jersey. Chris Christie supported Mitt Romney for president, but he had some unkind words for some of the Republican nominee's staffers:
"I told Gov. Romney at that time that if the storm landed as predicted that it was going to be catastrophic to New Jersey and unprecedented," Christie said. "I said to him, 'Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it's going to, I'm off the campaign trail from here to Election Day.' And he said to me, 'Chris, of course. Do your job, don't worry about me. I'll take care of things.' So all this other noise, I think, is coming from know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers who, you know, don't like the fact that I said nice things about the president of the United States. Well, that's too bad for them."
In case anyone was worried, Chris Christie has not stopped being Chris Christie. It's what he does best. Some Romney aides are undoubtedly blaiming him for Mitt Romney's loss, but it was their own party's intractability and Romney's tendency to say things like "I'm not concerned about the very poor," that did them in.
