Governor Christie Kicks Ass and Takes Names

I couldn’t bring myself to vote for Chris Christie, because of his extreme anti-gay position, and I imagine I’ll have occasion again to oppose him on that topic.  In the meantime, I love listening to him talk about the budget and take on the teachers unions, as in the video above.  If you don’t have the time or patience to watch all 9:50 of it, skip ahead to the 9 minute mark and you’ll get a good flavor from his peroration.

The governor also is making good use of social media to take his message to people directly and unfiltered.  Every video turned out by his communications staff ends with the screen shot below, urging people to connect with Christie on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  He inherited a budget deficit more than one-third as large as the entire state budget, and he’s going to have to make a lot of cuts in a lot of places to avoid raising taxes, as he has promised not to do.  I like his chances — listening to him is like a breath of fresh air compared to most politicians.

  1. Gov. Christie is part of the problem, not a solution. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
    A Progressive posing as a Conservative. He could not win as a Republican, so he switched his cloth. Fire his ass, and let him survive in the real world.

    PLU!

  2. Thanks for the comment, Don, but you're thinking of Florida Governor Charlie Crist who left the Republican party. Chris Christie was elected last year as a Republican in New Jersey.

  4. Sadly it must be a political issue, esplaicley now that the POTUS has made his feelings known. I don’t like this mosque idea in that location, and I think it should be nipped while still in the bud stage. I believe that Mr. Obama made a mistake here, although I have been wrong before as my wife (the conscience of America) so insistently points out. BTW this is the first issue that we have completely agreed on in years, so maybe this time I’m right???????????
