5:17 pm
address geared toward a national audience? >> it was absolutely a national address. he was sticking up the place he begin. he didn't play that clip. that's a clip where i plan on showing. none were exists in new jersey as far as i knew. but, look i actually thought his diagnosis of what's ailing the country as part of this sort of -- i've always said america's been going through this anxiety crisis of some sort for quite some time. i thought he was spot on in what he's identified. the question is i think what a lot of candidates have struggled is, how do tackle the issue and how to make people who feel sort of this anxiety, because that anxiety is coupled with distrust of politicians, whether it's chris christie or president obama. >> as we know governor christie makes headlines all the time for being blunt and outspoken, no filter. is that something that will help him if he decides to run for president or is it something strategists might tell him he
5:18 pm
needs to rein in? >> look the minute you try to be somebody you're not or you try to change your personality, you're losing. it doesn't help. mitt romney one of the reasons he's still -- he struggled is he was overcoached and he had way too many people be this no be this no be this. look, it may hurt him. but the fact is he will be -- if he's always thinking about making sure he has the right tone and doesn't lose his temper or yell at somebody he'll be timid and cautious all over the place. i actually think it would be bad for him as a candidate. my question for chris christie i don't know how he stands out that sort of established moderate ring of the republican party when you have mitt romney and jeb bush fighting for that voter. >> chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." thank you for your insight. we appreciate that. watch "meet the press" this sunday morning at 10:30 right here on nbc10. depending on where you live you may not have noticed. >> this is crazy, this

5:20 pm
if it does. look at that statistic, though. all i can think about in this area last year, all the snow we got. hottest year what? >> i know. we didn't think about the heat. it was all about how we were inundated with snow. we would take some of sha that snow right now. >> sheen yeah are you listening? >> i'm pretty sure i could use some of that warmth, too. no question at all. i think in anyone's mind especially as we go through tonight. it is going to get colder. before we get to tonight's cold we have a few snow showers around the area. not for everybody but a few blowing in from the great lakes, so that's the lake-effect snow making its way in from our windy conditions today. for tomorrow morning, some areas could be in single digits. that's going to be the coldest in the next seven days. then we go into sunday. we'll see big changes taking place. we have rain moving in sunday for a good portion of the day. live look out at center city we have clouds around. it is windy, some snow showers in the vicinity of philadelphia. right now, 40 degrees in
