Christie had raised eyebrows Sunday when he went on three morning shows to declare that the presidential race would be "turned upside down" come Thursday morning -- defying the lower-the-expectations game that the rest of the Romney camp was playing.
Still not sure if this was a game-changing moment. We'll know more after a few days of polling. But in his call this morning to his favorite cable show, Morning Joe, Christie sounded downright giddy:
"I don't think anybody else was paying attention. Every time Mitt Romney had his back against the wall and they had a debate, he came out and had a game-changing debate -- ask Rick Perry, ask Newt Gingrich...and on Sunday, I just came out and said exactly what I believed, which was I've seen this guy do this before, and I think he's going to do it again. And he did last night...Mitt Romney hit a knockout last night."
