“Speaker Gingrich has never run anything,” he told FLDemocracy2012.com, a Scripps Howard website. “And he’s been a legislator. I have to tell you, I don’t think being a legislator is the best calling card. Look at the guy we have in the White House now. He never ran anything and was a legislator.”
In the Republican primary season, comparing a candidate for the presidential nomination to President Barack Obama is pulling out the big guns, but no one has ever accused Mr. Christie of diplomacy. The New Jersey governor also dismissed Mr. Gingrich as “the newest flavor of the two weeks,” adding, “these Gingrich poll numbers are as solid as the Cain numbers were, as solid as the Perry numbers were, as solid as the Bachmann numbers were,” comparing Mr. Gingrich’s poll numbers to earlier front-runners Herman Cain, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann.
