Regular readers know of my utter disdain for the Fat Slob governor of New Jersey. I always thought he was a big fat phony who tried very hard to project a personality of caring for the people by way of a blunt and often obnoxious manner. He delighted in telling people off particularly public servants like teachers and state workers. He became a media darling especially to pundits like Joe Scarborough who never missed an opportunity to call Christie the savior of the Republican party. In the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy Christie never missed an opportunity to get in front of a camera and project an image of being in charge. He posed with President Obama in a show of bi-partisan cooperation. However, from the very onset of that horrible storm I smelled a rat. Even before the storm hit in a pre-storm briefing Christie packed the press conference with political lackeys who applauded his every word. Seemed suspicious to me at the time. Seemed he was already looking for praise and accolades.
Of course New Jersey being full of morons and jerks The Fat Slob cruised to a huge reelection. Indeed, Christie wanted to not only win but win big because he always wanted to run for president. The great fiscal conservative cost the state of New Jersey and extra $24 million to hold a “special” election for US Senate in October rather than run in November with Cory Booker on the ballot. Meanwhile he was taking political revenge on officials who would not help him run up his margin like the Mayor of Fort Lee. I won’t go into all the current details of Bridgegate because so much is yet to come out. Anyone who believes that Christie didn’t know about the plan to close lanes on the GW Bridge is an imbecile. The horror of what he and his aides did last September is really close to unbelievable. Lives were disrupted. One person died and even innocent children were impacted. I think it was criminal and I hope people go to jail.
Today comes a report that Christie is now facing a federal investigation concerning his use of Sandy relief funds that may have been used to promote his own reelection efforts. I believe it’s becoming clear that Chris Christie is not only a Fat Slob but also a sociopath.
