Christie Works His Celebrity At Annual Gala - My9 New Jersey

Christie Works His Celebrity At Annual Gala

Posted: Updated:
New York, New York (My9NJ) - On Sunday, the second annual Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala was held in New York City. It was a political, star-studded event that rolled out the red carpet for Rabbi Shmuley-affectionately called America’s Rabbi, Global Jewish Philanthropists Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson and Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Governor Chris Christie was also on hand to give the night’s main speech, but he chose not to walk the red carpet.

Rabbi Schmuley introduced the governor as ‘his governor’, since he lives in New Jersey. Christie’s speech took on a clear tone of concern for the place the United States holds as a leader for the world today.

“No one can realistically believe today, when we have Democrats and Republicans in Washington D.C. who not only don’t govern, but barely speak to each other, that we’re any longer the model for the world,” he explained.

The governor also made reference to the leadership of Ronald Reagan twice, while praising himself for being the type of leader who takes on difficult challenges and doesn’t worry about popularity when doing so.

“If you worry every day about what position you are in an opinion poll, you can’t govern and you can’t lead. I speak about this from personal experience. I’ve been in the 40’s and I’ve been in the 70’s. The 70s are better than the 40’s,” Christie joked.

Many people think the Christie is moving up the ranks of celebrity as more and more speculate his presidential run in 2016.
