As President Obama and Mitt Romney campaign in key battleground states, Romney's business edge starts to fade.
Paul Steinhauser joins Zoraida and Alina with some polls from key states Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania showing Obama with a slight lead.
How long will the media put up with Gov. Christie's rudeness? I believe there is a certain decorum with which every member of the human race should conduct themselves, especially politicians who were elected to serve the populace, not belittle them. It seems that almost every news conference Mr. Christie has, he gets into a confrontation with someone whom he finds a way to demean (even calling some reporters stupid).
There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone, but one should always treat then with respect. Gov. Christie's latest news conference dealing with foreclosures in his state was no different than his previous ones, as he found an opportunity to do as he always does. Do we as Americans see this type of conduct as a "no nonsense" approach or exhibiting strength? This must be the case as the rude Judge Judy who treats people in a similar fashion is quite popular.
Regardless, Mr. Christie should be called out, especially by the media whom he seems to be fond of disrespecting! I hear no major Politian from either party, (Romney, Ryan, nor Obama) behaving in this fashion. If Mr. Christie is a rising Republican star, is this what we can look forward to if and when he addresses the foreign press? Would the press tolerate this type of conduct from the president? If the president behaved in this fashion, I honestly believe the media would be having a field day editorializing about his treatment of them, instead of simply reporting the confrontations and or exchanges as they do with Gov. Christie.
