TRENTON — With most of the Garden State under a blizzard watch, Gov. Chris Christie was asked Thursday afternoon what lessons he'd learned about New Jersey's power grid in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Appearing as a guest on conservative talk host Hugh Hewitt's syndicated talk radio show, Christie gave a foreboding answer.
"What we learned is that it's incredibly vulnerable, and incredibly fragile," the governor and Republican presidential candidate said, adding that "a bad storm, a historic storm like Sandy, put the most densely populated state in the nation without power for 75 percent of the state for three weeks."
Christie said the fragility and vulnerability of New Jersey's power grid after Sandy means "that we have a lot of work to do," and then took the opportunity to promote his corporate tax plan, which calls for repatriating $2 billion in U.S. corporations' assets at a substantially lower rate.
The governor promised that if elected president, he would "use that money exclusively for rebuilding our infrastructure, and by that I mean, roads, bridges and the grid."
Hewitt noted that his radio show would repeat throughout the weekend on stations in both New Hampshire and South Carolina, and asked the governor for his "closing argument" to voters in those early primary states.
Christie answered that "I don't think there's anybody more tested by crisis" and that when faced with a devastating storm, "I put the people of my state first and foremost."
Here's Christie putting the people of his state first this weekend with the impending blizzard coming north:
LACONIA, N.H. — Gov. Chris Christie continues to monitor the a winter storm from New Hampshire that has most counties in New Jersey under a blizzard watch and the rest of the state under a winter storm watch.
The governor's office issues a statement late Thursday evening that advised Christie continues to "actively monitor the winter storm."
Christie, who's seeking the Republican presidential nomination, is in the middle of a six-day tour of New Hampshire as makes his final pitch to voters here with less than three weeks before voters head to the polls. He said earlier Thursday he had no plans for now to cut short his campaign trip and return for the impending storm, saying the lieutenant governor can handle the situation.
You just can't make this stuff up.
When I think about the politician who is most full of shit in this country, I can never figure out if it's Chris Christie or Andrew Cuomo.
Every time you think one of them wins the award hands down, the other one does something to put himself back into contention.
Not sure about that. The fish stinks from the head. Obama is pretty high up there going off to Detroit to laud the auto industry while ignoring the egregious water situation in Flint and the state of the schools in Detroit.ReplyDelete
Echoes of Katrina?
If we ever needed any proof that Obama is a fraud, this week proved it.Delete

Right now I am taking delight in the panic occurring in union offices all over the state. NYSUT and the UFT have sold us out at every turn, as have our locals. Soon the US Supreme Court will give we, the union members, the ability to put a blowtorch up the rear ends of the union officials and force them to start representing us or go out of business and yield to new professional organizations committed to the membership, not to their own perks, privileges and power. I am sick of paying dues to organization's that sell us out. I am sick about paying money to Randi Weingarten to go out and endorse Clinton, who I disagree with on every single issue of importance. I hope the Supremes rule 9-0 against these thieves.ReplyDelete
Be careful what you wish for as you will then be working in what we call a right to work (for less) state. Would you rather the DOE handle your future and fate?? Think about what you are saying. The TRUTH regarding the friedrichs case is that they are trying to DESTROY our union and other unions. Yes I agree with you the UFT has been less than stella for us but do not cave in and withdraw your dues because thats what people like bloomberg, klein, rhee, cuomo and many more want you to do. The case of friedrichs is about destroying unions and not some much about the $52 per paycheck that we pay.Delete
The people screaming that they cannot wait to pull out their measly union dues are the people working in the industry who have no clue as to what is going on around them right now. The dopey union worker who works from 9-5 eats and sleeps sees this as a way to save money per pay check and to pump their chest like a gorilla saying ha ha i am not paying any dues. Well, this attitute will turn out to kill the employee who will see their livlihoods turn into a mcdonalds like job with low wages, no job protections, no benefits, no opportunities to grow, no salary, no pension, no nothing but you will save $52 every other week. Remember, be careful what you wish for.Delete
Once again you completely miss the point. The choice is not between a terrible union or no union. It is between a terrible union that cares nothing for our opinion and a new union that serves us and has earned receiving our dues. Wake up. Stop uttering UFT/NYSUT talking points.ReplyDelete
talking points?? what you talkin bout willisDelete
I give up. Keep flushing your dues down the toilet.ReplyDelete
Chris Cristie for authoritarian dictator president. All obedient voters vote for Trump or Christie.ReplyDelete
10:29....your "dopey" comments solidify withholding dues....here's the plan....the UFT is humiliated...discredited....and then new union leadership is created...then we get back in union....the scumbags like u,who are probably UFT ....have to go...I know what's going on...UFT out...then rebuild the union....bye bye UFT....ReplyDelete
12:49 a.m. - Thank God for you. I want giving up that anyone on this site understood this issue. All I kept reading were union talking points that we had to keep forking over our dues to a crew that works against us at every turn and we should like doing it. Decertify the UFT and NYSUT and make way for a new, more militant and more representative replacement worthy of our dues.ReplyDelete
