When Christie finally did acknowledge the presence of pork, he minimized its significance, reserving his outrage for Republicans:

Where was his outrage at Harry Reid?

Or the vacationing President Obama?

No time for that. Must target the GOP.

He certainly didn’t win many Republican fans today.

Or:

Politician or not, today’s diatribe did not endear him to proponents of fiscal responsibility.

Ouch.
