Monday's Morning Joe began with a discussion of N.J. Governor Chris Christie and whether the charges against him were creating a problem for him to serve as head of the Republican Governors Association.
Robert Gibbs, former Press Secretary to President Obama, opined:
I wonder how many stops he has made since the initial allegations on the bridge came out that involved he and his staff? How many of those trips have the candidates in the states he has traveled to actually showed up publicly for an event with him? I think the answer is zero. I know he has been to Florida and last week in Texas and this week, he's in Illinois. You do have to wonder does he have any idea what is happening in his office and how many times can you play the card of, "i had no idea this was going on in my own office."
To which Joe Scarborough appropriately responded:
Robert, it's getting to the point he is starting to sound like President Obama
Alluding to the fact that each of the recent scandals, the IRS, the NSA and other, the President's excuse was he didn't know about it until it broke in the news.
