It's a Christie Thing

As a Jersey girl who mostly lives in another blue state, I can honestly say we have had some good Republican politicians. It is not a bad place to live although the taxes keep going up and the pretty parts of the state are diminishing. Christie has done alot to try and get the spending down but it becomes harder and harder in a state that is supporting cities in decline. I know that you are a true conservative John and I probably am not but sometimes we have to work with what we have and who has been elected. Personally, I was not happy to see Christie through Romney under the bus but since you are not a fan of his either, I guess you did not mind.

Let me say on the record that I don’t really care about New Jersey. I know very little about it. But, I know this much: I don’t want to live there and I don’t want the rest of the United States to resemble New Jersey.

For me New Jersey is the Joe Piscopo character asking anyone and everyone “Are you from Jersey? I’m from Jersey.”

Also, I’ve never seen the TV show “Jersey Shore,” but still I don’t like it. And know that I don’t want the rest of the country to resemble it, either.

It’s the state that elected...
