Lecturing Us on the U.S. Economy


Basically sums up my initial reaction when I learned that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, he of the six debt downgrades and the $800 million budget hole to fill in a few weeks, would be a keynote speaker at an economic summit today.

Unless he is there to serve as a warning to others I can’t imagine what wisdom he would be imparting but I’ll be watching just in case.  It is supposed to start at 12:30 today and the live stream of the conference is at this link.

    Right, because we all know it is all Governor Christie’s fault the spendthrifts in Trenton only know how to spend and not how to cut, or follow any of Christie’s other recommendations for reform.

    It almost seems like you expected him to be able to solve NJ’s promises or that things would have been different if Corzine or Buono had been elected. They would be, of course, in that the taxes would be higher and Turnpike and Parkway would be in private hands by now…..

    When he was asked about the flood of recovery money actually helping a state turnaround Christie agreed. What might have been does not matter. He should not be let off the hook for his own mismanagement.

      What …IS … needs to be addressed …. with step #1 being the freezing of any FURTHER growth in these totally unaffordable pensions.
