MONTVILLE – Gov. Chris Christie weighed in on the sequester debate Wednesday, telling residents the primary “blame is with the president.”
The governor called it a failure of President Barack Obama to lead Congress in finding a solution to the proposed “sequester” cuts.
“If sequester happens Friday, in my opinion it’s the fault of the president,” Christie said at a town hall here.
“There’s no excuse for both sides to be fighting the way they are,” he said. “Let’s get together and straighten this out. … The president is the one who has to show the leadership.”
Christie again argued that Congress is out of touch, saying it’s the nation’s governors who are making progress and keeping things rolling – a talking point which has been a consistent theme with Christie following the recent national election.
“If you wait for a legislative body to show leadership, you’re going to be waiting forever,” he said.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
