Christie vs. Rubio: "The Memorized 30-Second Speech Where You Talk About How Great America Is... Doesn't Solve Anything"

|

N.J. Gov. Chris Christie goes on the war path against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at the final Republican debate ahead of the New Hampshire primary.

"You have not been involved in a consequential decision where you have had to be involved and accountable," Christie charged. "You just simply haven't."

"The fact is that what we need to do in this country is not to make the same mistake we made eight years ago," he continued, comparing Rubio to fellow one-term senator, President Obama. "Do not make the same mistake again."

Following Rubio's response, Christie again takes aim at the senator. "You see everybody," he said. "I want the people at home to see this. That is what Washington DC does," he said. "The drive-by attack at the beginning with incorrect and incomplete information and then the memorized 25-second speech."

"The memorized 30-second speech where you talk about how great America is at the end of it doesn't solve one problem for one person."

CHRIS CHRISTIE: Every morning when a United States Senator wakes up, they think about what kind of speech they can give, or what kind of bill they can drop.

Every morning when I wake up, I think about what kind of problem do I need to solve for the people who elected me. It is a much different experience...

Marco... You have not been involved in a consequential decision where you have had to be involved and accountable, you just simply haven't.

And the fact is when you talk about Hezbollah sanctions act that you list as one of your accomplishments, which you just did, you weren't even there to vote for it.

That's truancy.

The fact is that what we need to do in this country is not to make the same mistake we made eight years ago.

It does matter when the challenges don't come on a list or a piece of paper, or whether to vote yes or no every day, but when the problems come in from the people that you serve.

I like Marco Rubio, he's a smart person and good guy, but he simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States. We've watched it happen everybody.

Do not make the same mistake again...

You see everybody, I want the people at home to see this. That is what Washington DC does, the drive- by attack at the beginning with incorrect and incomplete information and then the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what--

Marco, the thing is this, when you're president of the United States, or you're governor of a state, the memorized 30-second speech where you talk about how great America is at the end of it doesn't solve one problem for one person.
