Christie Will Have Trouble Holding On To His 2% After This

Just because you have a forum and an audience does not quality you to speak on every issue which is why you won’t read anything on climate change on this blog from me. By contrast….

Thanks to Paul Mulshine for the article and NextGen Cliimate – New Hampshire for the youtube:

All I can add is that this is typical Christie bluster.  He is right and anyone who disagrees with him is wrong until such time as he changes his position to a more expedient one for his purposes and then takes umbrage at those who point out the obvious:

    LOL..this is so funny! I loved Christie after his “60 Minutes” interview, but that was years ago and he is a total tool now….

  2. This guy has been wrong on every issue including the pensions. Thankfully he’s now a joke for the world to see. Anything he does or says will never be taken serious.

    • Not really.

      Is breathing harmful to the environment? He is on record saying ‘yes’ and ‘no’ so he has to be right on one of those.

      And that he’s a punch line is nothing to be thankful for. He is representing New Jersey to the rest of the world. I was never comfortable with his take-no-crap Jersey attitude in berating questioners (especially when he’s wrong) but when you pull that on ten-year-old girls it’s time for intervention.

      • That’s why I think anything he puts on the table will be met with an uneasy feeling. He’s at the point where even other republicans are keeping clear. Any pension reforms he could have achieved, while actively working alongside the public workers together, who simply want a seat at the table –will now be lost. We all know he’s coming back to NJ, broken, with his tail between his legs. His first target will be the easiest on his radar. Public employees!!!!
        But regardless of how anyone on this blog feels…. No change will happen while he is in office.
        That was my point.

          BH,

          That’s amusing, Public Sector workers ….. “simply want a seat at the table”.

          When in the decades of past “negotiations” on Public Sector pay, pensions, or benefits, have Private Sector Taxpayers EVER had a “seat at the table”, OR had THEIR interests been fairly represented ?

          I’m sure that you are THRILLED that Christie is unpopular and often making a fool of himself …. because it enables you to use that as an EXCUSE to ignore the truly NECESSARY and just “fix” to the pension mess NJ is in (AND, a recommended by the NJ pension Commission)….. NOT more taxes, but VERY material reductions in the current grossly excessive level of promised Public Sector pensions & benefits.

            Oh Tender Loving, you are so right. Tell it like it is. Private sector taxpayers have never had a seat at the table, through their elected representatives, to promise any obligations for the State of New Jersey. We have never agreed to approve Atlantic City tunnels or Meadowlands ski slopes. Our only option is to default. Default on all our unrepresented obligations. Have the State Supreme Court declare them all unconstitutional. Only by default can we increase the State cash flow and raise New Jersey’s credit rating. The rationality is hidden from so many. Why is it revealed to just we two ???

            How nice, our Public Sector gravy-train riding “poet” is back ……..

            Quoting …”Private sector taxpayers have never had a seat at the table, through their elected representatives,….”

            That’s correct. When our Elected Officials gleefully solicit and accept Public Sector Union Campaign contributions in exchange for their favorable votes on Public Sector pay, pensions, and benefits ….. there IS NO “seat at the table” for Private Sector taxpayers.

            Materially REDUCING these grossly excessive Public Sector pension/benefit “promises” and/or simply refusing to Fund (or PAY via budget appropriations) is eminently justified, and the comeuppance so well earned by the insatiably greedy and arrogant Public Sector Unions/workers/retirees.

            And the Atlantic City tunnels or Meadowlands ski slope get a pass?

            S Moderation Douglas,

            Your Ilk like to raise OTHER misdeeds in a warped sense of “justification” for NOT addressing the grossly excessive, unjust and oppressive Public Sector Pensions & benefits.

            Sorry …. that not how it works.

    Why quite, Tender Loving, why quite. You and I can always agree. Reductio ad absurdum, me boy, and all that bosh. Sic semper to all obligationis committed to by elected representatives. Free the cash flow. Default on obligations. Raise the credit rating. Your logic is exquisite. And ahem … in three part harmony … “greedy, grossly, voracious, excessive, insatiably et cetera, et cetera”. Keep repeating until rationality is numbed. On yeah, and beat up a little girl here and there who might see the holes in the tawdry discourse. Carry on Tender Loving. You’re doing the best that you can.

      Materially reducing the fraudulently obtained and grossly excessive Public Sector pensions & benefits would be applauded by the credit rating agencies ….. and be a VERY clear credit “positive”.
