Jon Stewart Challenges Chris Christie on Changing Tone Toward Obama

Jon Stewart grilled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, making his first appearance on “The Daily Show,” in an interview that challenged why Christie had an about face on President Obama.

Stewart’s point: Before Hurricane Sandy, Christie was critical of Obama’s leadership skills. After Hurricane Sandy, Christie embraced him. “So he wasn’t a leader until you needed leadership?” Stewart asked.

“What it tells me is that people have different skill sets at different times,” Christie said.

Stewart also challenged Christie to play a game — which of the governor’s quotes come from him and which come from Don Rickles.
