While you are probably maxed out and exhausted of Chris Christie-related stories at this point, Glenn played some fascinating audio on radio this morning that proves just how not conservative the New Jersey Governor actually is. In fact, his policy preference is more in line with President Obama than a Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) or Senator Mike Lee (R-UT).
“Chris Christie reminds me a lot of our current president. Why? Because Barack Obama is a progressive, and Chris Christie is a progressive… There are some differences. But sadly, there are too many frightening similarities as well,” Glenn said. “Let me take them one by one. If you still are saying, ‘Well, we’ve got to support him because he might be the candidate,’ here [are] the similarities between Barack Obama and Chris Christie.”
Take a listen to a side-by-side comparison of Christie and Obama’s stances on global warming, gun control, immigration, and more in the video below:
“They could be each other’s speech writers, couldn’t they… Christie and Obama have a lot in common. Two peas in a pod,” Glenn concluded. “Here’s the truth: Because they have so much in common, I really have no interest in 2016. I will not accept, nor will I ignore, nor will I vote for Barack Obama-light or Barack Obama-heavy. Light policy-wise, heavy otherwise. And that is the truth on who Chris Christie is. And [that is] why we will continue to tell the truth on this program. Whether you choose to like it or not, we will continue to tell you what we believe is the truth.”
