Chris Christie Hits Back At Rudy Guiliani

Chris Christie on Morning Joe earlier this morning:
I understand this perception thing. I get it, and I've listened to everybody.

And listen, Rudy is wrong on this one. You know, I like Rudy a lot, too, but it's easy to sit in the peanut gallery and shoot away, which is what Rudy's doing.

I guess when you're retired and out of politics, it's easy to come on these shows and shoot away.
... and this was in response to Rudy's comments on January 7th:
Chris should've come back.

I mean, if he asked me my advice, I would've said 'They elected you governor, they've got an emergency, they expect you to be there.'

You know, you've got to be there if you're a governor, a mayor, or even a president, if it's important enough.
This begs the question: is this the beginning of the 2012 Republican Primary debates? (even though Chris Christie says he's not running...)
