Christie tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that every time Romney was backed into a corner during the GOP nomination fight, he “came out with a great debate performance because that’s where he shines.”

Host Bob Schieffer brought up Romney’s comments about 47% of Americans not paying federal income taxes which Christie was not concerned about. “They know political candidates … are going to say things inartfully.”

Christie also said seniors should not worry about changes to Medicare under the Obama health care plan. “They’re going to change Medicare for folks like me, who just turned 50, and younger,” Christie said.
