Christie: Go easy on Mitt

Via The Hill's Daniel Strauss, here's Chris Christie showing restraint in his criticism of Mitt Romney's "gifts" comments, and urging everybody to move to another headline.

“I always hate this kind of scapegoating after the election. When you lose, you lost. Someone asked me, 'Why did Mitt Romney lose?' I said because he got less votes than Barack Obama. That's why.”

.... “Mitt Romney's a friend of mine. I understand that he's very upset about having lost the election and very disappointed. I've never run for president. We've lost elections, I've lost elections, but never for the presidency. I'm sure it stings terribly.”
