Christie Stands by His Criticism of Boehner
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s excoriation of House Speaker John Boehner commanded national attention Wednesday — carried live by CNN, making his last name one of the top trending words on Twitter for the rest of the day, analyzed and deconstructed by countless pundits and columnists.
One question raised in some quarters was whether Christie, a potential candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, had hurt himself in GOP circles by bashing his party’s House speaker, who already was politically wobbled from the conclusion of the “fiscal cliff” showdown.
Christie said in a Friday interview that he has no concerns that he damaged himself among Republicans nationally.
