>>Governor Chris Christy is The Man from New Jersey: Keep an Eye on this Guy because Patriots certainly need his kind of guts.
Posted March 5, 2010on:
I was a huge fan of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey when he ran for office and was gratified that the people of New Jersey elected a Conservative republicans in that Democrat state. Now with this action I see this is the kind of man our country needs in all the state governments and more so in the federal government.
Maggie Thornton passed on this bit of news. Link to her blog below. This lady has much to say and does her research well. BB
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie spoke for almost 30 minutes to the New Jersey League of Municipalities yesterday. Christie laid out the fiscal problems of his state, said “this is the job that I asked for and I am prepared to do it.” Of his early meeting with the State Treasurer, Governor Christie said he was presented with 378 possible freezes and lapses to honor the budget. He accepted 375 of the 378! He said we have made every” quick fix” possible, and now we are “left holding the bag.”
“We have no room left to borrow, no room left to tax.” The option is to be shot in the back [by the troops of the decades of over-borrowing and over-spending], or hold hands and jump off the cliff. We will land and we will land fine. It does not mean that it won’t be scary.” This Governor means business. Christie actually offers “hope and change” and plans to bring it.
