Trust me, if Chris Christie was at the end of his first term, or in his second, he would be the odds-on favorite to be the next President of the United States. After two years of smoothing, calming, hope-and-change rhetoric that turned out to be a smokescreen for the plundering and raping of the American treasury, this nation yearns, more than anything else, for a straight shooter.
And boy oh boy, does the fat man fit that bill! Watch here as Chris Christie rips a reporter a new *sshole for calling him "confrontational", then clearly lays out who he is and what he's gonna do, with an in-your-face Jersey style that the residents respect and the nation (thanks, Pauli D!) has grown to love:
Jersey represents, folks...
And obviously related:
Elsewhere today, thanks to Christie’s support, the Jersey state senate pushed through a school voucher bill over the objections of the teachers union. Quote: “Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak, D-Union, the committee chairman, then ordered the hearing held on the Annex steps in front of hundreds of cheering private-school students who had been bused in to rally for the measure.”
