...as in, closing budget deficits without raising taxes. Basically, with a knife and a middle finger:
NJ Gov. Chris Christie appeared in Williamsport, PA in support of GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett on Tuesday. Christie talked about he closed a $2.2 billion deficit without the help of the Democratic legislature and even told a joint session of of the NJ legislature that, 'You left a budget on my doorstep, and the doorstep of the people of New Jersey and you thought you were going to get them to pay higher taxes to fix it. I just signed an executive order, I fixed it by myself. Thank you, have a nice day."
Check out the 2 minute mark for the quote above. Go to the 4:20 mark to hear Christie explain what a "millionaire's tax" means to Democrats, and what happened when they tried to pull it on him. Best thing is to sit back and watch it all; stick around for the final twenty seconds, when a spectator says, "you know, Tom Corbett was OK, but Chris Christie..well, everyone I talk to hope he runs for president in 2012..."
And by the way, even after Christie cancelled the soon-to-be $6 billion dollar ARC Tunnel into New York, sending Democrats and liberal columnists (such as Krugman and Herbert) into an apoplectic fury, he's still polling at...51% in the state formerly known as "Blue Jersey".
An intellectual paradigm shift, forced through by the fattest Republican New Jersey has ever seen. Whod've thunk it?
