Fact Check: Christie denies Rubio claim on Sotomayor support – who’s right?

by FoxNews.com  |  published on January 16, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie launched his campaign under the motto, “telling it like it is.”

But a review of some of the New Jersey governor’s statements Thursday night during the Fox Business debate – particularly his stinging rebuttal of Marco Rubio’s attack – shows he still may be bending the truth with his straight talk.

The two candidates’ testy exchange erupted on the FBN debate stage when Rubio accused the New Jersey governor of holding liberal views, “whether it is Common Core, or gun control, or the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor or the donation he made to Planned Parenthood.”

    Their records for both of them say rino at the very least. More like bought and paid for career politicians!

    FoxNews checked Christie’s statements and proved that he did do and say what he was accused of by Rubio.
    As for Rubio, well he made it a point to say, ” I was there when…” Yeah, well his work record isn’t very good. He doesn’t show up more than half the time. The same standards that are held for us should be applied to them as well. Five absences in a year. Show up for work!

      Only 5?? I bet it’s 10 times that many. He might have only missed 5 very important votes or hearings, but he hasn’t been “working” for the people of Florida for most of the past year.

      Five missed votes this year 2016 an over 150 missed votes over the past 3 years.

        My only question is, if Harry Reid were calling the votes and you were a Republican, would it make a difference if you showed up to vote or would it be a mere Symbol that you could brag about later and be virtually meaning less…..the way Reid ran the place I am not sure why the R’s even dignified Dingy Harry’s votes by coming at all; after all, he stalled any votes of consequence over 400 times. And I am no fan odf Rubio or Christie.

          Nothing say I do not care like not showing up does ( “RIGHT”). BETTER TO A STAND AN BE COUNTED ; THEN DO A NO Show, OR NOT TAKE A STAND. What would have happened had our founding fathers never showed up.. Looking for OR ESCEPTING bull crap excuses for Marco Amnesty queen Rubio, NOT showing up ,exspress your whimpish, cowardly views. Of okay I’ll bend over an take it like a good little bitch. ( ” Right”)

            You missed the point, when the Reids and McConnells do everything to frustrate the process of governess to the point of lying to their own party members about what is going on and you have to go into private rooms to read a bill and not take notes; the THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS WITHIN THE REPUBLIC has been derailed to the point that it matters very little who shows up to vote but rarely. And as I stated I am no fan of Rubio, my take is he is the Rino version of Obama…HIGHLY INEXPERIENCED GOLDEN THROAT WITH NOT A CLUE HOW TO GOVERN OR GET ALONG OR MANAGE PEOPLE.
