The air from Trenton has never been so fresh:
CWCID: Hot Air (which link includes a particular example of the Christie style).
Now I see why the worst his opponent could say about Christie was that Christie was a fatso. Jersey hit the jackpot on its new guvna.Other states should be as fortunate. With such a big deficit, toes are going to be stepped on to balance the budget. Christie isn't afraid to take the heat in front of his constituents, and explain his decisions. Contrast that with elected officials like Barbara Boxer. It seemed that Boxer spent more time pushing her new book last year than meeting her constituents.
Did you see that the state has a surprise revenue shortfall for the first part of fiscal 2010, beyond what was already projected? Happily (via HotAir) we learn Governor Awesome already has it covered. No worries.
It reminds me of when Giuliani arrived in New York City. He's charming, too.
He really fixed New York City and for all the wailing, it was the children, the minorities, the old, the sick, and the weak who benefited the most statistically. I saw some show about how 1990 was the crack and murder zenith (I don't know if that is statistically exact). Bloomberg is merely enjoying the work of change done in the 90s just as the USA is enjoying Reagan's work since - another charming reformer.
I do see some big differences between Giuliani and Christie although they are both pretty much in-your-face. Christie has said in his speeches that he is "not angry" - and he doesn't appear to be, although I guess it's early to tell how it will all work out. I love his attitude. Giuliani had a lot of vindictiveness to him which I don't see in Christie. Must be his Irish side.
I'm still moving back to Joisey.
