Never moved on

From Tuesday's Republican Presidential debate on CNN --

Chris Christie: But I will tell you this, when I stand across from King Hussein of Jordan and I say to him, "You have a friend again sir, who will stand with you to fight this fight," he'll change his mind.

Christie is thus the 2nd prominent Republican recently to refer to King Abdullah of Jordan by his father's name, Hussein. It's as if the Reagan fixation comes with a quantum lock regarding the entire cohort of Middle East leaders from that era.

Christie was also not challenged on who paid for one of his trips to Jordan; the very King whose name he can't remember!
