Christie on Iran Deal: 'We Have to Let Secretary Kerry Do His Work'
Even as the Obama administration attempts to negotiate a rotten deal with Iran on the monitoring and winding down of its nuclear program – a deal that fell through late last week – Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) has declined to take a position on Iran. “I’m the governor of New Jersey,” he said on ABC’s This Week. “I think for me to be expressing opinions on this this morning would be ill-advised and I’m not going to do it. I think there are people who are significantly better briefed on this than I am, as the governor of New Jersey.”
He continued to shy away from the issue repeatedly: “I think it’s very dangerous for folks like me to get involved in the middle of this and start giving opinions. We have to let Secretary Kerry do his work. Once we see the product of that work, then we can all make a judgment. But right now I’m not briefed well enough.”
