Gov. Christie shouldn't have called a Navy SEAL an idiot.
So says the governor himself, in a rare moment of quasi-contrition.

Two weeks ago, asked about the controversy over Mitt Romney's 47 percent remark, Gov. Christie offered a defense in a radio interview that went after the press:
But yesterday, on ABC's This Week, Christie said media bias shouldn't be an issue:
