When David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network interviewed Gov. Chris Christie at CPAC last week, did he ask about the bridge closure and political corruption scandals that are engulfing his administration? Of course not! Instead, Brody may have given the embattled governor one of the easiest interviews ever.
Brody kicked off the interview by asking Christie to describe his “strong conservative record” against the perception that he’s a moderate: “You just said right out there that the media loves to define us, conservatives, so tell me a little bit about – they’ve been trying to define you. Here you are with this strong conservative record, yet it’s the ‘moderate Chris Christie’ and all, what do you make of all of this?”
Christie said that “the media [is] continuing to try to put forward a myth” that he is a moderate, citing his anti-choice stance.
The CBN host then asked him the hardball question of whether he enjoyed speaking at CPAC, followed by whether President Obama should receive a grade of D or D+.
Brody then hailed Christie as a “straight shooter” and drove the interview home by asking Christie how Republicans can “capture the White House” and what he thinks of the New York Mets’ prospects next season.
