Growing the budget counts as cutting? Mmmm k.
Huckabee teach you that?
Oreally was acting as a DNC talking head. But then, its all about Billy. With plenty of old video on FNC lately of his big mug and all to ‘honor’ many his years in service (as a news peron) as if he is the only person in the world to work themself up the ladder.
Never get tired of spewing up the same nonsense, eh, PDS'er?
Oh yeah he thinks Castle is a small government conservative. That if nothing else should give you reason enough to know he isn't ready for prime-time.
lol .... see, that's why I come to these threads. You're such a touchy bunch.
No, you and your PDS loser crew come to the Palin threads to vandalize them.
The whole "reload" business is spin that nobody but a small percentage buy.
In her rambling 'I quit' speech she gave a number of reasons, including this (paraphrased)...
Since I decided not to seek re-election I will be a lame-duck. Lame ducks just waste the taxpayers' money by jetting around on useless foreign travel junkets. I will not do that to the people of Alaska so I'm quitting.
As I said paraphrased but only because I don't want to take the time digging it up - but it's out there.
I saw the speech live and laughed out loud. By her reasoning every elected official who will not or cannot seek an additional term is a lame duck who will waste the taxpayers' money. That means every POTUS on the first day of his second term or to be fair, on day 730 of his second term. Two years left and a lame duck? It is ridiculous.
And, how many true lame duck officials (last days of final term) actually spend that time running all over the map? Most of them do their best to get as much of their agenda pushed through as possible.
Nope, Palin is not the real deal. She says the right things most of the time but, as with all of us, she is judged by her actions not her words.
because he is a jerk, and a liar who really wants to run for president, but is playing the “oh, I don’t want to be president, but if you insist card”
There is no honesty in Christy. I once liked him, but when he started to attack the most likely candidate and front runner, he revealed himself.
He can go choke on a ham bone. If he focuses on his state and fixes it (de-unionizes it) then, in 2018, I will vote for him.
There are no “KNIGHTS IN SHINING ARMOUR” charging into the public arena with intuitive answers to long standing nursing at the public treasury!
You better brush up on the instant “troll” terms if you want to last around here. We know Palin’s record and she isn’t a quiter. She did what is best for her state and to short circuit all the left wing lawsuits against Alaska. She is heroic.
If she quit, as you've repeated ad nauseum for the past year, then why are you bothering to stink up the Palin threads.
Astounding post! You are actually asking some anonymous internet poster how you are supposed to think!
You want a touchy bunch? Take this, I will write in Sara Palin in the primary, if she doesn’t run. I don’t care about the rest of the hacks.
She is the only one who has shown the character of old America.
I am tired. I am poor. I am what America was founded on, and I want a second chance.
What I see is a Budget Increase. From Page 95, the State of NJ expended $28.9 Billion. The 2012 budget is projected at $29.4 Billion, and increase of $500 Million. I use the expended figure because Governor Christie tells us to, because he is using zero-based budgeting for the first time.
Secondly, last year Governor Christie announced he performed the miraculous task of balancing the budget he was given by the math-poor Corzine which hid a $10Billion Corzine gap. He balanced this, not with spending cuts, but by failing to pay the state pension debt. The debt didnt go away, we now own roughly $100 Billion in pension liability, except we have less and less in the cookie jar to pay future expenses.
