RICHMOND, Va. (CBSDC) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took off the gloves during a campaign rally for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Virginia.
Speaking before supporters at Ball Office Products in Richmond Friday, Christie ripped into President Barack Obama.
“You’ve been living inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the last four years,” Christie said. “If you don’t think you can change Washington from inside the White House let’s give you the plane ticket back to Chicago you’ve earned.”
Christie riled up the Richmond crowd saying that Obama is arrogant for believing he can’t change Washington politics.
“If he believes that, then what the hell is he doing asking for another four years?” Christie said. “We’re happy to give you a bus ticket to the outside, Mr. President.”
Christie added that Obama is “blindly walking around the White House looking for a clue.”
“He’s like a man wandering around a dark room, hands up against the wall, clutching for the light switch of leadership and he just can’t find it.”
Obama and Romney will take part in the third and final presidential debate Monday night.
