A Real Joke
New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie has about as much chance now of becoming President of the United States as Billy Graham has of becoming Pope. Even before the bridge lane closure scandal, I was not enamored with the gun-banning, baleen, moderate GOP governor. Of course, real conservative credentials no longer seem to be a selling point among establishment Republicans. The Washington elite were sold on their fellow traveler from the Garden State, but heartland voters were not as taken with Christie who has demonstrated that he is no conservative on social matters, and while not as free a spender as his Democrat predecessor and not a handmaiden to public sector unions, Christie is not really a fiscal conservative either. With a media unforgiving to Republicans and largely already on the Hillary Clinton bandwagon, I do not think the Fort Lee folly will be forgotten.
