Gov. Christie has left his senses, now if he would only leave New Jersey
|So what you're saying is that it isn't because you|
want me to stay?
A lot of people think politics is boring and not at all fun. But how can they think that? Perhaps it's because they've never been to New Jersey.
As the political equivalent of a hanging curve ball, Gov. Christie told Megyn Kelly of Fox News that the reason 65 percent of New Jersey voters don't think he'd make a good president is that they love him so much in the Garden State that they want him to stay. What he actually said was, "A lot of those people in that 65 percent want me to stay. And I've heard that from lots of people at town hall meetings."
Well, the state's largest newspaper, the Newark Star-Ledger, would like to take issue with that assessment, and not in a very nice way.
They say that if Gov. Christie believes this, which is possible, he has lost touch with reality.
They think the reason people in New Jersey don't believe Christie would make a very good president is because he has been a disaster as governor.
And why is that?
It could be the rotten job market. Or the high property taxes. Or the crumbling transit system. Or the broken promise on pensions. Or the private jets. Or the Bridgegate indictments. And so on.
They offer the advice to Gov. Christie that he ought to reacquaint himself with reality, "pour himself a drink and ask himself the tough question: Why don't people love me?
Because, sorry, Governor, they don't love you.
Hey, the next time your boss gives you a really bad job evaluation, ask him if it's because he thinks you'd be great for that promotion you've been coveting.
