Christie curse-fest and how the media keeps blowing it

Two of the ‘angry drunks’ (Tom Moran and Paul Mulshine) took umbrage at having their off-the-record evening reported and Christie’s remarks recorded:

.

The scandal is believing that these mean-spirited ramblings bear some resemblance to what passed at the Algonquin round table or a Friar’s Club roast when it doesn’t even rise to a level acceptable to either Crispin Glover or Kiefer Sutherland from their druggie acolytes by the river.

What would have been funny:

  • Thank you all for coming.  I know how hard it is this time of year with all the budgets and actuarial reports you pore over.
  • I was even a little late tonight as our office had to rejigger some plans when the Supreme Court unexpectedly found one of our laws constitutional.
  • I don’t want to hear any more whining about me not talking to the local media.  Just tonight I answered over a dozen questions (mostly yes) and I count that as responding to the press since most of the waiters here are ex-statehouse reporters.
  • That new Monmouth University poll that finds 99% of New Jerseyans saying I would not make a good human being is deceptive since most of the people I talk to (political donors) say they prefer me as a heartless  asshole willing to do whatever their money tells me to do.

H.L. Mencken might have summed it up best:

A sense of humor always withers in the presence of the messianic delusion, like justice and truth in front of patriotic passion.

    TL and devout followers; individuals presenting a right wing conservative perspective based on half-truths and lies.

    TL continual posts repetitive misinformation citing sources with extreme ideology. Yet sumarial dismisses other posts with conflicting opinions and sources.

    Specifically, purposely misstated the tax status of public pensions in the following post; https://burypensions.wordpress.com/2015/05/22/christie-curses-out-nj-media/#comments When called to task tried to double talk their way out of it. Standard operating procedure for most of their commentary.

    Fair and equal for all is the mantra. Fair enough, but not when I suggest Federal workers and members of our beloved Armed Forces be part of the bigger conversation. The response, they’re different. But why, because they risk their lives like first responders at home. Their DBP are paid with Federal tax dollars as opposed to State or Local. Everyone knew the job risks when they accepted employment. But they also knew what their salary, pension, and benefits were supposed to be.

    To blame and demonize public workers for the current situation is unfair and untrue. Do politicians make “deals” with unions that don’t always have the taxpayers best interest? I think everyone knows the answer to that is yes. But politicians are always making “deals” it’s what they do. Just ask the various segment market corporations; defense spending (lucrative contracts), farming (subsidies) and the list goes on and on.

    Your bully tactics and demeaning attitude only motivate me more to push back your parties ridiculous vision for NJ and America. Yes I’m sure John knows all of our IP address, so you and your business name can be exposed as well.

    The purpose of continually posting this comment is to allow the counterpoint perspective to be heard. I will no longer personally engage your comments tit for tat.

    Interesting post …. especially since YOU, the “Anonymous” author, are likely the same “nutcase” who just two days ago said …….. “Kiss my Tea Party tush private sector bigots, they’re coming for your coffee beans”

        Why do you insist on believe that all the anonymous posters are the same poster? I actually feel sorry for you now. I think you really believe most of what you believe.

          Sorry for me ?

          My retirement plans are doing quite well, and unlike yours, are not based on a near bankrupt pension Plans, bound to fail ………nor are they derived from underhanded horse-trading between Unions & Elected Officials.
