Christie brands Obama with the 'L' word

"The president campaigned as a moderate and has governed as a liberal. That's the biggest problem I have with the president."

Gov. Christie did the radio circuit from last night into this morning, hitting - by my count - five shows. He made that statement this morning on 1210AM on the Dom Giordano Program.


As is protocol at this point, the gov said he's not running for president. But he criticized Obama's health care law, "which a majority of the American people are not in favor of, which takes away an enormous amount of freedom from people in terms of the way they deal with their health care." [Check out the attached poll.]

And he said the $223 billion federal deficit for February alone means that spending has to be cut which, in turn, will lead to job growth.

"On things like education reform, the president and I are pretty much on the same page. But these fiscal and tax issues are where he and I separate significantly."
