POLITICAL observations & opinions

* Gov. Christie lashed out at a Democratic legislator who announced plans to hold a hearing on the matter … “She should really be embarrassed at what a jerk she is,” Mr. Christie said … we can only hope there is a full investigation of all the Governor’s uses of public money for private purposes, and, if warranted, criminal charges are brought against the Governor … it’s what he would do if he were still a prosecutor

Gov. Christie (R-NJ) enters his government helicopter

  ******

Richard Perez-Pena writes in the NYT (6/2/11) …

  • Mr. Christie insisted that he had done nothing wrong and that he had made the payments — a day after his office said he would not — just to put to rest an issue that suddenly dominated news coverage in the state.
  • And he had some scathing words, even by his sharp-tongued standards, for Democrats, political pundits and journalists.
  • “I am not going to allow the media and the hacks in the Democratic Party to turn this into something that allows them to do what they always like to do, which is get away from serious issues where you have to make hard choices for things that matter, because they want to have a circus,” he said during a visit here for a bill-signing.
  • Of the Democrats and others who said his helicopter use might have been illegal, Mr. Christie said, “These guys are a joke.”
  • He added, “They know full well, full well, that it was none of that stuff at all.”

LMW COMMENT …

Sometimes we forget just how obnoxious Gov. Christie is … how nice of him to remind us. We can only hope there is a full investigation and, if warranted, criminal charges against the Governor.
