Christie to Obama: ‘Don’t Be So Cute’ with Obamacare Explanation

by Andrew Johnson

Chris Christie has some advice for President Obama as he tries to explain what he meant by his promise to Americans who wanted to keep their health-care policies: “Don’t be so cute, and when you make an mistake, admit it.”

The New Jersey governor said it was “pretty clear what [President Obama] said was not true,” but that if he truly was mistaken in his understanding of the law and didn’t know it would result in the termination of millions of plans, then he would be better served by admitting it. In not doing so, Christie explained, the president is lawyering it“ rather than “owning up to it.”
