President waited way too long

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed President Barack Obama's outreach to congressional Republicans as "a little bit late in the dating game."

"The charm offensive should have started in January of 2009," Christie (R-N.J.) said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" of Obama's overtures to some in the GOP. "And the fact that all of a sudden we're in June of 2013 and we're just talking about a charm offensive, and trying getting to know Congress? [It's] your fifth year of the presidency. It's a little bit late in the dating game to start to get to know somebody."
