New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made some rather interesting comments over the weekend. Speaking to the NAACP in New Jersey, Christy said that being senator is nowhere in his future, that he would rather die than serving in that position.
“I would rather die than be in the United States Senate. Okay? I would be bored to death. Could you imagine me banging around that chamber with 99 other people, asking for a motion on the amendment in the subcommittee? Forget it.”
“It would be over, everybody,” Christie said, the crowd apparently amused by the thought. “You’d watch me just walk out and walk right into the Potomac River and drown. That would be it.”
Christie also promised that he would never run for public office in New Jersey again. And considering his dismal performance as governor and the low approval ratings he received from New Jersey residents, I’m sure they’re applauding his decision to stay out of Jersey politics.
“Believe me, by the way, when I say ‘I’m never running for public office in New Jersey again. I mean I’ll never run for public office in New Jersey again.”
There goes the Applause!
