...says Andrew C. McCarthy. By all means read his detailed piece. But it totally reinforces my political 'litmus test'.
He doesn't mention it specifically, (because I suspect McCarthy may share Christie's view) but Christie is anti-gun. Allowing the citizens to keep and bear arms is to vest the citizenry with power. So any politician who is anti-gun, is against giving the citizenry power. And since the power has to go to someone, it usually goes to them.Christie is a perfect example.
When your only choices are a philandering bi-sexual accused of bribery (former governor Jim McGreevey), a union bought and paid for scofflaw who's firm steals his client's money (Jon Corzine) and a big government progressive Republican who would be considered a liberal Democrat anywhere else in the country but can at least handle simple math, the choice is easy. Remember, Mike Bloomberg was a Republican too.
Until we can untangle the union stranglehold and shatter the political machines, in NJ, Christie is the best we can do. But he's a lousy choice for national office.
