I hesitate to post this since it is hard to believe that the Christie campaign would be this clueless. But, just in case……
According to a story on politickernj:
Last January, Christie used his annual N.J. State of the State address to go national, launching his bid for the White House. This week, on the road in Manchester, New Hampshire, he’s going one step further: he will tweet in his State of the State Address to the crowd at the Trenton War Memorial.
Christie, who has been endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader, will be in Manchester for three events Tuesday, January 12, says that he sees ‘…nothing wrong with texting in the State of the State. “Sweeney and Prieto should just get over it, even though their panties are all in a snit”. He’s is scheduled to begin tweeting 3pm on Tuesday to the State Assembly, State Senate and previous governors in attendance at the Trenton War Memorial.
The New Jersey Constitution requires the governor (under Article V Section I Paragraph 12)”: “The Governor shall communicate to the Legislature, by message at the opening of each regular session and at such other times as he may deem necessary, the condition of the State….”.
“Democrats need to get back to working for the people of the state of New Jersey by cutting taxes and creating jobs, and not worry about where I am texting from. The Constitution says that ‘the governor shall communicate….by message….’and that’s exactly what I will be doing, all in 140 characters,” texted Christie, right after an event at a high school in Nashua.
Even if it’s not a joke once this gets spun as another example of Christie not giving a rat’s ass about New Jersey (which is not a negative in and of itself since about 97% of the people in this county could, and often do, adopt this attitude though it’s not that common for someone who happens to be the sitting governor of New Jersey) we may yet see a change of plan. If not a drop-by then maybe a call-in.
On the other hand, what would he have to say anyway? What does Christie know (or care) about the state of this State these days?
