I watched a story about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on CBS’s Sunday Morning yesterday.
It was an excellent profile of the man, his philosophy and his directness and difference as a politician.
I like him. I don't like some of his decisions, but I like the way he thinks and speaks. He is a refreshing politician. I would hope others in his republican party would embrace his style of politics instead of the uncompromising, contentious, if not cantankerous, body they have become.
Speaking of uncompromising republicans. The current crop of Obama-care haters in congress would rather shut down the government than sit down and reason together. As Governor Christie might say, “that’s stupid.”
If there is something in the Obama-care law that doesn’t work or could work better, then it is congress’s responsibility to fix it, not shut down the government. Congress voted it into law in the first place and the United States Supreme Court and the electorate in the last election have affirmed it.
I wish there was an immediate way we could throw these idiots out of congress and bring in reasonable legislators to sit down and work out the problems.
GOP - Grand Old Party. What a misnomer.
