Chris Christie

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie entertained Florida delegates over breakfast Thursday morning with a story about how naturally GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney interacted with his children when visiting Christie's home last October. "What I saw from Mitt Romney that day, you can't fake. What it told me was something that I didn't know until that day -- this really is an involved father and a doting grandfather. This is a man with a good heart and you know he's characterized so often unfairly, as this CEO, reserved person who doesn't show his heart. I saw that heart that day, because you can't fake it with children. Children don't accept being faked with."
