(CNN) – New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s only response to Meghan McCain being “over” him is that he has no response.
In his monthly “Ask the Governor” session on the NJ101.5 radio station Wednesday night, Christie mostly fielded questions about the state’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy. But the questions briefly turned to Meghan McCain, daughter of former GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Tuesday, the younger McCain told CNN’s Piers Morgan that she was “over” Christie’s presumed 2016 candidacy. Current polls put Christie at the head of a crowded field of potential 2016 Republican contenders.
“I’m kind of done with Chris Christie right now,” McCain said.
She referred to Christie’s 2012 GOP convention speech that barely mentioned nominee Mitt Romney. “There’s some level of self-promotion that you have to do, but I would like the next leader of the Republican Party, the next nominee to maybe be a little more interested in helping the country than just their platform.”
For his part, Christie, who is currently running for reelection, was dismissive of McCain’s comments.
“Are we really going to be responding to Meghan McCain?” Christie said, referring to the entire episode as “sophomoric.”
Christie said that he would take a call or criticism from McCain’s father. But Meghan McCain holds no office and doesn't live in New Jersey.
“Meghan McCain has no standing to be criticizing me,” Christie said.
“I’m not going to respond to somebody just because of their last name.”
Filed under: Chris Christie • Meghan McCain....cute. Somebody told me he can be a true self promoter, and be the next leader of Weight Watchers.
What an arrogant jack hole. Every potential voter has 'standing' to criticize you Mr Christie, as you waddle forward in your pursuit of the presidency.
And in another shortness of breath he said:
Just when I was about to for once, agree with Christie he takes the bait. The entire republican party is full of this kind of childish behavior. All because they know they don't have anyone who stands a chance of winning the White House with an (R) in front of their name. The good thing is, Barack Obama won't be on the ballot next time and even that doesn't help.
Gov. Christie and Meghan McCain need to get over themselves.
What dose Meghan McCain do anyway , what is her profession. Dose she work for Jenny Craig , Mary Kay Cosmetics or is she a hairstylist ?
The article doesn't say.
... I think that would be good to keep in mind, when Ms. Palin opens up her mouth.
Of course you are not going to respond.. You like to get in people's faces when somebody confronts you and do the bullying in person.
She is right though.
