While responding to a constituent’s questions about his use of Bruce Springsteen’s music, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) seems to have taken the words of The Boss to heart: “No retreat, baby, no surrender.”
At a town hall on Tuesday, participant Sandy Booket said she heard that Springsteen asked Christie to stop playing his music because the rock icon, who was born in New Jersey, disagrees with the governor’s politics. Christie did not take her assertion well.
“No. Never did that. Nah, you’re wrong about that,” Christie replied. “Bruce has never asked me to do that. I saw Bruce about a week and a half ago. And he had every opportunity to tell me not to. He didn’t and he never has told me not to do it.”
“Nah, listen: I know him and you’re wrong,” Christie continued. “I understand you’re now expressing your politics. You’re now expressing your politics and your objection, and that’s fine. Don’t put it in Mr. Springsteen’s mouth. Put it in yours. Don’t put it in Bruce’s mouth. I know Bruce. I’ve spoken to Bruce. And you’re wrong. Speak your mind. Be angry or not. It doesn’t matter to me. I have a job to do, and I’m going to do my job the best way I know how to do it.”
