Chris Christie defends the ineptitude of the TSA

Hot off his 9th place finish in Iowa Chris Christie took his tough guy act to New Hampshire.

During a campaign stop in Epping, New Hampshire on Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took issue with one man’s complaints about getting through airport security.

He also didn’t try to sugarcoat it.

“You know what else is inconvenient?” Christie asked. “Getting blown up on a plane.”

Except, if you’re expecting the TSA to prevent you from getting blown up on a plane, well, you might want to buy that extra life insurance, just in case.

The Department of Homeland Security said Monday that the acting administrator for the Transportation Security Administration would be reassigned, following a report that airport screeners failed to detect explosives and weapons in nearly every test that an undercover team conducted at dozens of airports.

According to a report based on an internal investigation, “red teams” with the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General were able to get banned items through the screening process in 67 out of 70 tests it conducted across the nation.

Oops.

Take a clue from Schmuckabee Chris. Pull the plug. Come back to Jersey. This isn’t your year.
