Chris Christie President
October 5, 2011 by staff
Chris Christie President, Bending yesterday, Gov. Chris Christie said that the barrier for its candidate for president was his allegiance to New Jersey. After asking voters to make Governor, could not bear to leave his post.
Perhaps the governor is not altruistic and paid attention to their own ambitions.
But maybe not. It is a politician. So his word should not be the end of the discussion.
Christie could have concluded he can not win – or at least that was too risky a gamble.
Probably lose in Iowa, and then face a tough test against Mitt Romney in New Hampshire. The next is South Carolina is a tough sell to a Yankee governor who believes in global warming, whose state has some of the toughest gun laws in the country and who has said that illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship.
The rush to make it even more difficult, as Christie has no ground operation, no staff at all. And remember that he said he is not prepared to be president, a comment that would give their opponents another sweet spot for a 30 seconds.
The governor wants us to believe that none of it contained in its decision. And that’s a tall order, to put it mildly.
He left the door clearly open to a vice-presidential race, with artistic denial were not negative. But even if that happens, he will be with us for another year.
So what can we expect? The next step is the reform of education, probably after the November elections. The main event will be in the possession, and there, we are pleased to have the governor on board.
It’s obscene that we still have rules that protect bad teachers from being fired. Damaged more and more children every year. Can only be explained by the power of the teachers union to intimidate legislators. What is needed is a system that allows principals to fire bad teachers, helps along the middle and reward those at the top.
There will be skirmishes over charter schools and vouchers. Once again, we are with the governor. At least not in the districts, families must have a means of escape.
Our hope is that the governor acts quickly to address public safety crisis in our cities. Massive layoffs of police and firefighters, thanks to cuts in state aid and stubborn unions have left people at serious risk in cities like Camden, Newark and Paterson. It is up to the governor to find a solution, probably through the regionalization of police, increased aid, or both.
That should keep him busy for now. You can think about being vice president later.
