Chris Christie slams high court, calls DOMA ruling a 'bad decision'

Hours after the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling today striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act, Gov. Chris Christie maintained his opposition to same-sex marriage and lambasted the high court.

“It’s just another example of judicial supremacy rather than having the government run by the people we actually vote for,” he said of the high court’s 5-4 vote during his monthly radio show on NJ 101.5 FM. “I thought it was a bad decision.”

Christie’s comments echoed statements issued by fellow Republicans U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and former Sen. Rick Santorum, who both said the Supreme Court overstepped its role.

“At least two presidential hopefuls have come out strongly against it,” said Jennifer Duffy, an expert on governors at the Washington-based Cook Political Report. “So whatever Chris Christie says it’s probably going to make a lot of sense for New Jersey for 2013 and maybe not so much for 2016.”

2. Keep your mouth going there Crisco

 

He thinks Dems are going to vote for him.

He probably liked the ruling the day before over voting rights.

5. Of course he said that, he wants to get through the 2016 primaries

He would get crucified by the lunatic fringe (aka the republican primary voters) if he didn't blast the SC decision.

He may or may not really believe this, I don't know or care, I wouldn't vote for him in any case, but he had to say it anyhoo.
