Christie Governing Without Concern for Political Future - Page 2
Imagine if more politicians from both sides followed his lead. Imagine if the majority of the buffoons we elected (yes, we are responsible for these boobs) actually governed with principle. Imagine if they didn’t care if they only held office for one term if it meant actually accomplishing something.
What gave rise to grassroots movements like the Tea Party was not racially charged hatred of President Obama. What gave rise to movements like it was the fact our elected officials in Washington continue to be self-serving and turn a deaf year to what those that put them in office actually want. The “We the People” continues to be ignored by those drunk with power and influence.
Christie will continue to be a lightning rod especially for those on the left that don’t like his politics. Even so, they have to respect a guy who just continues to do what he thinks is best even if they don’t disagree. It may be seen by some as a failure to compromise, but isn’t that what we need? A politician who backs up what he said he’d do when he got elected?
There are other stars on the right and left making a name for themselves in today’s hostile political environment. No other is doing it in such a principled ways as New Jersey’s Chris Christie. Let’s hope more in Washington follow his lead.
