Looks like Chris Christie relies on a "memorized 25-second speech" of his own. In fact, he has left a trail of clearly scripted moments.
He attacks Marco Rubio for repeating himself, yet he does the same thing.
Watch video here.

This Hillary Clinton ad begins and ends with people talking to babies, born and unborn.
Clinton claims she has spent her life fighting for children.
Yeah, well, she has also spent a lot of her life promoting the death of children, via abortion.
Hillary says everybody needs a chance.
Not everybody. Not the unborn.
The ad states, "Black lives matter."
Of course, to Hillary, unborn black lives do not matter.
This campaign is about building the kind of future we want the next generations to come into.https://t.co/zOkDSS3dj0— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 8, 2016
Let's remember what the Democrats promote - the wholesale slaughter of the unborn.
This Doritos ad aired during the Super Bowl.
I knew it would not go over well with those bent on denying the humanity of unborn babies.
The commercial demands that one recognize the unborn baby as a person.
Of course, the Dorito-loving baby is silly and an impossibility.
Still, the ad highlights the scientifically verified reality that an unborn baby is responsive and alive. The baby, the human being, exists.
Abortion proponents don't like that. They refuse to acknowledge that truth.
NARAL's tweet about the ad is especially laughable.
"Antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses"?
No "tactic" to humanize a fetus is necessary. The reality is the fetus IS human. Of course, it's human. What else would it be?
NARAL's complaint about the "sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight" is funny.
Guess what? Some dads are clueless and some moms are uptight. By no means all, but some for sure.
However, I can say with complete certitude that ALL human fetuses are most definitely human.
I was surprised Doritos had the audacity to acknowledge the unborn baby's humanness.
If the intent was to get people to talk about the ad, it was a successful move. Ticking off the pro-abortion crowd was a risk, but the science of an unborn baby's humanity is settled.
Pretend that baby isn't human, NARAL. That's the only way to deny the baby's humanity, by pretending. Reality declares otherwise.
Abortion ends a human life.
I liked Super Bowl Sunday this year.

Based on his debate performance yesterday night, a concerted effort is being made to deem Rubio as unfit to be president.
From the Palm Beach Post:
Marco Rubio came prepared Saturday night to be attacked by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as a do-nothing senator with no executive experience.
But was he too prepared?
Rubio, accused by Christie of being overly scripted, offered the same polished riff on President Barack Obama four times during a brief exchange near the beginning of the GOP presidential debate at Saint Anselm College.
Christie’s camp crowed that the encounter showed Rubio to be a robotic politician, while the Rubio camp said it merely demonstrated Rubio’s discipline in taking the fight to Democrats.
...When Rubio got the inevitable question about his experience, he rattled off a list of his accomplishments. Then he pivoted to an attack on Obama, whose thin Senate resume is often used by Republican critics to argue against making first-term Sen. Rubio the Republican nominee.
Rubio said the problem with Obama isn’t his inexperience, but his ideas.
“Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world,” Rubio said.
Christie countered that unlike a governor, Rubio has never been “involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable. You just simply haven’t.”
Rubio responded by attacking Christie’s fiscal record in New Jersey, then zeroing in again on Obama, in nearly identical language.
“Let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is trying to change this country,” Rubio said.
Christie pointed to Rubio’s response as “what Washington, D.C. does — the drive-by shot at the beginning with incorrect and incomplete information and then the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what his advisers gave him.”
Watch the video.
Rubio did go back to his line about Obama knowing what he's doing, but Christie's claim that he's incompetent for allegedly relying on a "memorized 25-second speech" is silly.
Rubio hit back at Christie's record, citing different examples. He didn't just spew a "memorized 25-second speech." I didn't see Rubio's responses as inappropriate or robotic.
If anything, CHRISTIE was the scripted one. He was determined to hit Rubio using the inexperienced angle, prepared with that "25-second" line.
Kind of funny that Christie kept pounding Rubio for delivering lines when Christie relied on prepared lines of his own.
Listen to all the candidates, both the Republicans and the Democrats/Socialists.
They all have their rote responses.
It doesn't bother me if a candidate repeats himself. I care about what he or she is actually saying.
I hope New Hampshire voters have the good sense to not be swayed by the spin.
I called it. I knew Bernie Sanders would appear on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
With Larry David hosting, there was no doubt Sanders would be there.
From NBC News:
"Saturday Night Live" gave political junkies, "Seinfeld" fans, and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" enthusiasts everything they could have hoped for when Senator Bernie Sanders joined comedian Larry David as he hosted Saturday's show.
The Democratic presidential hopeful met the sitcom creator — who has played the senator previously on the show — in a live sketch on board the Titanic as the famous ship began to sink into the ocean.
David, playing an Irish aristocrat of sort, attempted to convince the ship's captain to save him instead of primarily "women and children."
Sanders would not stand for this as he barreled on stage to applause with a cabbie's hat and a rumpled brown vest and jacket.
"Enough is enough! We need to unite and work together if we're going to get through this!" shouted Sanders.
"Sounds socialist to me," replied David.
"Democratic Socialist," corrected the Vermont senator who is a self-described democratic socialist.
The two men poked fun at Sanders' pronunciation of the word "huge" (as "yuge"), as well as the candidate's Jewish religion when David asked him his name.
"Bernie Sanderswinsky," said Sanders with a grin, "but we're gonna change it when we get to America so it doesn't sound quite so Jewish."
"Yea, that'll trick em," responded David to laughs.
While this was the only scene where the two appeared together save an introduction of the musical guest, The 1975, the candidate remained present throughout the show.I have to stop watching SNL.
Perhaps the moment that delighted fans of both men alike came earlier in the show because it featured David's frighteningly accurate depiction of Sanders in a digital short titled "Bern Your Enthusiasm."
"I am running for president. I do not shake disgusting hands!" David—as Sanders—said neurotically after a back and forth at a crowded rally with a voter who coughed on her hand before hoping to meet the candidate.
The voter, played by SNL's Leslie Jones was dismayed at not shaking Sanders' hand.
Then, on a venture to purchase a cup of coffee with whole milk (not 2%), David came across a woman who got into a car accident on her way to vote for Sanders. Upon asking for his help relocating her shoulder however, David demurred.
"Pop it back in? Are you nuts…Go to a hospital, I'm not a popper," said the comedian as Sanders.
"F*** You!" shouted the voter.
Later in the sketch David watched the polls close on the night of the Iowa caucuses with his campaign team and wife Jane Sanders, portrayed by SNL's Vanessa Bayer.
As the results came in showing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just barely edging him out, the quintessential Curb Your Enthusiasm trombone music played over the scene as the camera panned to the two voters who Sanders rebuffed earlier in the sketch.
They were wearing Clinton shirts and stickers shaking their heads in disgust.
The scene ended going to black showing the title: "Directed by Bernie Sanders."
Oh, good grief.
The show was most definitely NOT "one for the ages."
Where was the Dem debate sketch? Where was Kate McKinnon as Hillary?

JIMMY FALLON: Last night was the first one-on-one debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And I don't want to say things got tense between the two of them, but one guy was like, [Trump voice] 'Please lower your voices. Don't need to shout.'.
At the debate, Hillary Clinton addressed the controversy over her personal email server and said she has no concerns about it whatsoever. Democrats were like, 'Yeah, that's what concerns us. Why does that not bother you?'
Hillary also told Bernie Sanders that it's time for his campaign to end the very artful smear against her. Incidentally, 'very artful smear' is also how Bernie orders a bagel. [Sanders voice] 'Give me whole wheat with a very artful smear of veggie cream cheese.'
Bernie Sanders now holds a double-digit lead in New Hampshire polls over Hillary Clinton. Bernie says he's still taking every precaution he can against Hillary by running ads, giving speeches, and having someone else start his car in the morning. Can't be too careful

Kasich or any other candidate better not plan on putting out a tweet that he's going home to get a change of clothes.
That could stir up a lot of trouble.
