New Jersey governor Chris Christie said today at a press conference that he's "a sad guy standing here today":

"You need to understand this. I am standing here resolved to do my job and do what I'm supposed to do. But I am a very sad person today. That's the emotion I feel. A person close to me betrayed me. A person who I counted on and trusted for five years, betrayed me. A person I gave a high government office to betrayed me. I probably will get angry at some point, but I got to tell you the truth, I'm sad. I'm a sad guy standing here today--very disappointed. And that's the overriding emotion," said Christie.
