Christie Calls America ‘Hopeless’ at Romney Campaign Stop
Stumping for Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie addressed a crowd of a few hundred outside of a Des Moines grocery store, reports NJ.com
“Let’s be real clear, President Barack Obama came out to Iowa three years ago and he talked to you about hope and change,” Christie said. “Well let me tell you after three years of Obama, we are hopeless and changeless and we need Mitt Romney to bring us back, to bring America back.”
Christie’s scorching remarks introduced Romney to the crowd in a last push to rally voters’ support for the Massachusetts governor before next week’s Iowa caucus.
Christie continued to talk to supporters over a small crowd chanting, “We are the 99 percent.” Christie told the audience, “If you don’t do what you’re supposed to do for Mitt Romney on Tuesday. I will be back, Jersey-style, people. I will be back.”
Christie is scheduled to meet with voters in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque later today.
