Rudy Giuliani praised New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Friday for firing the aides responsible for the so-called bridge-gate fiasco, saying he did what President Barack Obama "finds impossible to do" — hold people accountable.

"He explains it. And, here he does something that the Obama administration finds impossible to do. He held people accountable for it. He actually fired them," the former New York Mayor said of his fellow Republican on "Fox & Friends."

"All you have to do is contrast it with Benghazi, the IRS scandal. The way they obfuscate. They hide. The way they never have press conferences," he added, referring to the Obama administration.



Giuliani called Christie's apology for the shutdown of traffic last year across the George Washington Bridge connecting New York and New Jersey caused by his aides as "refreshing." Not many politicians would have dealt with such a controversy by hold a full-blown press conference and giving "definitive answers. He said it was "exactly the opposite of what we have in the White House right now."

"We've spent the last three or four years trying to figure out why President Obama never explains things. Is never transparent. Is never direct. Always seems to be leading from behind, which is, of course, following.

"Now we have an example of the opposite, a guy who gets out front and leads and tells the truth," Giuliani said of the governor who is viewed as a major contender for the presidency in 2016.
