Christie: Obama’s ‘Charm Offensive Should Have Started January 2009’; ‘Bit Late in Dating Game’

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took some shots at Barack Obama Tuesday.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Christie said the President’s charm offensive on Congress "should have started in January of 2009…it’s a little bit late in the dating game to start to get to know somebody.”

CHRIS CHRISTIE: So I think that, you know, the fact is that you need someone to take some leadership down there, and I'm disappointed that the President hasn't done that either. I heard you all talking on the way in about his, you know, early parts of his charm offensive. You know, the charm offensive should have started in January of 2009. And the fact that all of a sudden now we're in January or we're in June rather of 2013 and we're just talking about a charm offensive and trying to get to know Congress. Your fifth year of the presidency. You know, it’s a little bit late in the dating game to start to get to know somebody.

Speaking of the dating game, does this mean the bromance between Christie and Obama is over, or only until one of them needs another bipartisan photo op?
