Phil Kown Press Conference. March 22, 2012 (Transcript Below)
Governor Christie: I don't have that luxury. Listen, as I said to you before I'd like to come out here and rant and rave and go crazy, believe me. Don't take from my demeanor that I'm not really upset about what happened to this guy today, because I am. But I have a job to do here Terry. I'm the Governor of the state of New Jersey. And so I don't have the luxury of allowing this to poison my relationship with Senate Democrats. I have to work with Senate Democrats to get things done for the people of the state. That's the oath I took. They forgot their oath today. I'm not forgetting mine. Mine is to get things done for the people of the state and I cannot afford to allow any particular instance of bad conduct like today to poison my ability to do my job, and I'm not going to let them do it. I care too much about this job and I care too much about this state and its people to let that happen. I'm not going to do it.
