New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie blasted President Obama in a speech earlier today at a conservative conference in Chicago
"The president, the president, fundamentally believes that the way to support our economy is to take more in taxes from all of you and spend it on more public workers who then will pay a fraction of that money back in taxes," Christie said. "If anybody ran a business like that, they would be out of business quickly. And Barack Obama's leadership is driving this business--the United States of America--towards a fiscal cliff. We better stand together in the next five months and stop him from doing it."
