Christie On Boehner Resignation

Chris Christie was gentle in his direct comments on House Speaker John Boehner’s resignation. ¬†Although he was critical of Congressional leadership more broadly in earlier comments, Christie politely said that “the Speaker obviously made a very personal decision” and “that it’s hard to tell” when I asked if in his view the House, and the country, would be better off without Boehner as Speaker.
