You know a judge is going to force the state to give them money any time now.

too bad Christie isn’t conservative on more issues. Too bad he puts zealous Muslim on the courts too.

Thanks Gov. Christie. Now the rest of the country needs to follow suit.

Too bad this solidly pro-life and pro-traditional family Governor keeps getting smeared by a persistent whisper campaign over the Internet that he's a "pro-abortion social liberal".

Though I must admit the "he's pro-abortion" liars haven't been trolling on the Christie threads much in the past week or so. Maybe their checks from the NJ Teacher's Union bounced.

You are right. There is a bad tendency among some ‘conservatives’ to see threats where there are none. Christie is a fairly solid social conservative he is very strongly pro-life and pro-traditional marriage and he is very fiscally conservative. Does everything he says impress me no but neither does Sarah Palin or Michele Bachman however the important thing is none of these candidates are our enemies nor should they see each other as such. We have some real aweful candidates running like Mitt Romney who have records only a Democrat would be proud of. Those are our political opponents as much as Obama and we should be careful not to cut off our nose to spite our face.

GeronL, he took on the teachers union. He doesn’t let liberals push him around. We are talking about New Jersey. From what I’ve seen, he is delivering on many campaign promises so far.

***********************************************************

I live here and unless you do then you don’t know half of the grief he is giving the libs. Remember the Left never admits they have been beaten but even with that Christie has gotten them so they don’t know what hit them. What he is doing is using their own methods against them and the libs are totally clueless as to what to do. they have lost the greater number of people in the state who pay taxes and all they can do is wail and gnash their teeth.

Corbett hasn’t generated the national headlines that Christie has, but he’s certaintly a breath of fresh air compared to the Philadelphia mob we’ve dealt with for 8 years.

Good. I'm glad he is taking them to task.

What he is doing is using their own methods against them and the libs are totally clueless as to what to do.

Well, we always knew that they were clueless, but it's nice to see them baffled in this way as well.

they have lost the greater number of people in the state who pay taxes and all they can do is wail and gnash their teeth.

Let the gnashing continue. You obviously do know more than I do, so from my vantage point, all the better. I think he has a bright future if he continues in this manner.

Philly politics are so corrupt. There two Pennsylvanias. Philly and Pittsburgh and then the rest.

There are some places here that you would think were in the deep south. Which is a good thing.

>> I didn’t say anything about abortion <<

You didn't, but it's a fact that every since Christie got elected there have been trolls showing up on almost every Christie thread to "inform" conservatives that "he's pro-abortion". They continue to "accidentally" repeat this lie no matter how many times Christie goes to bat for the pro-life cause. It would be nice if they would just stop lying about him and man up to the fact they were wrong. I guess for some conservatives, facts don't matter if they want to smear someone they're bitter about losing to.

Well, I ain’t one of those.

I don’t expect real conservatism from NJ/NE so I don’t get disappointed anyway.

“What went wrong in Texas?”

We can’t seem to get around to electing a conservative to run the state.
