Christie: Americans Sick of House 'Game of Thrones' Routine

Americans are sick of the whole "'Game of Thrones' routine" in the nation's capital, GOP candidate Chris Christie said Friday, and he doesn't think the average American really cares who the next speaker of the House is.

"Not only how I feel, it's what I'm hearing out here in New Hampshire," the New Jersey governor told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "They're sick of these guys just caring about who gets what title and what big office and the best table at the restaurant in Washington, D.C."

Instead, they want their elected officials to "actually do something that they promise to do," Christie said, whether it's passing tax reform, repealing or replacing Obamacare, or other issues, and he hopes whoever the next speaker is will work toward those means.

The chaos on the Hill, though, does say a lot about Washington's dysfunction, he said.

"Listen, I've dealt with a Democratic legislature in New Jersey for every minute of my six years as governor and I've never used it as an excuse not to get things done," Christie said. "So I'm tired of hearing them make excuses. Get in a room and get things done. But instead all they do is have battling press conferences, battling press releases, criticizing each other and they don't put the American people first."

Christie also spoke out about President Barack Obama's reaction to last week's mass shootings in Roseburg, Ore., calling his quick gun statements on gun control "obscene."

He said that if he had been in the same situation, he would have said he was praying for the families and that leaders should pay attention to their concerns.

Instead, Christie said that Obama "gave a rant ... a temper tantrum over the things that his liberal agenda that can't get done, and he uses these shootings as a chance to get it done. It's obscene."

Also on the show, Christie commented about Hillary Clinton's Thursday comments comparing the National Rifle Association to negotiating with Iranians or communists.

"Has she taken leave of her senses?" he asked. "She said you can't negotiate with the Iranians? That's what she was doing for four years as secretary of state, and now she's supported the agreement."
