‘Boy, Were We Wrong’

New Hampshire Union-Leader un-endorses Christie.

The New Hampshire Union-Leader un-endorsed Chris Christie after the New Jersey governor’s craven endorsement of Donald Trump. It’s a doozy.

> Boy, were we wrong.

> We endorsed Chris Christie in the New Hampshire Presidential Primary. Despite his baggage, we thought that as a Republican governor in a Democratic-leading state he had the skills and experience the presidency needs (and hasn’t had of late). We also thought he had the best chance to take on and face down Donald Trump.

> Watching Christie kiss the Donald’s ring this weekend — and make excuses for the man Christie himself had said was unfit for the presidency — demonstrated how wrong we were. Rather than standing up to the bully, Christie bent his knee. In doing so, he rejected the very principles of his campaign that attracted our support.

> Voters here apparently knew better than we. Most rejected Christie but divided their votes among several others, leaving Trump to claim victory. And now, despite specifically telling us that he would never endorse him, Christie is backing Trump.

> If nothing else, that might wake up some Trump fans. We will look for that, just as soon as we get the egg off our face.
