back to "hardball." now the "sideshow." first the week with
's and new jersey younger generation. it's not unusual on whether christie will get questions on whether he'll run for president and not usually from someone who won't be able to vote in
um, you've done a great job here in new jersey, and i was wondering. if you were thinking of running for president?
do you work for msnbc? i'm not thinking about running for president right now because i've got a job to do here, and i've got an obligation to all these folks. you can't worry about fourth grade until you finish third grade, you know? i can't worry about this until i do this job.
earlier in the week christie took on an even younger crowd. a class of kindergartners.
did you come here in a limo?
no, i came here in something even better. i came in in a helicopter.
it landed on your field over there. what was i doing?
nothing? that's pretty usual. probably just talking, right? that's what this job is about, a lot of talking.
was the president's wife enchanting?
was the presidentay wife enchanting? yes, actually, she was. she's very smart and she's very nice.
good hit as we say in politics. next if nothing else, georgia republican
leads the week with comments that leaves you thinking what's that supposed to mean? on whether he would change his position on
. chambliss says i'm not gay, so i'm not going to marry one. he is not alone in making a situation based on the his own personal situation. first former senator
of arizona. in '09 he wanted to cut out the part that required employers to cover basic
because it made everyone's insurance more expensive.
i don't need
, and so requiring that to be in my
is something that i don't need and will make the policy more expensive.
that's big thinking. anyway, a colleague of his later pointed out that kyl's morgue likely needed some services at one point and then there was the fiasco overstates affected by hurricane sandy. back in january, 67 house republicans voted against providing
for sandy victims and it turns out that 37 of them have a history of supporting aid after
when their own states were affected. missouri congressman
was one of them, and here's what he said in
when his state was dealing with a severe
. i urge the president to approve this assistance without delay. many communities along the river have been stretched to the limit preparing for and fighting this unprecedented flood.
finally oklahoma senator jim? hoff in
had this to say during a debate on
as you see here, and i think this maybe is the most important prop that we'll have during the entire debate.
my wife and i have been married 47 years. we have 20 kids and grandkids. i'm really proud to say that in the
of our family we've never had a divorce or any kind of a homosexual relationship.
so, mr. inhofe lives in a world of straight, marital perfection.
la dee da
, but in this statement of self-celebration had to do with the debate on same-sex marriage? it's anyone's guess. up next, we learned today that
secretly wanted to form a ticket last year, never happened because they being aren't figure out who should be at the top of the ticket and who should be vice president and president. we broke it tonight. you're watching "hardball," the praise
