Christie Criticizes Palin's Comments on Shooting

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized Sarah Palin this morning for launching a broadside against the media and the left in a taped speech released yesterday.

"I don't think anybody really believes that Gov. Palin was trying to make someone get hurt or bring violence on," Christie (R) said on ABC's Good Morning America. "I think she should have said that and left it at that."


Christie said he didn't know whether Palin was aware of the historical context of the term "blood libel," a phrase that has for centuries referred to anti-semitic falsehoods that Jews kill Christians for ritualistic purposes. Palin came under intense fire Wednesday for using the words to describe media coverage suggesting a link between her rhetoric and Saturday's shooting in Tucson, Ariz., without evidence of a connection.
