Please, Gov. Romney, please pick Chris Christie as your running mate. Sure, there are those who say he's a nasty, unqualified bully who can't keep his mouth shut, but they're saying that because they're just jealous. (Look how much Cory Booker likes him!) I know how impressed voters of the Northeast corridor will be when you announce his name, so please give this your serious consideration. Every Democrat will thank you:
As New Jersey’s nonpartisan budget analyst testified before Assembly lawmakers about a $1.3 billion revenue shortfall, Republican Governor Chris Christie offered his own analysis of the speaker.
“Why would anyone with a functioning brain believe this guy?” Christie said yesterday, referring to David Rosen, who reported that the governor’s budget overestimates revenue collections through June 2013.
He’s “a joke,” a “handmaiden” for Democrats who control the Senate and the Assembly, Christie said. “The Dr. Kevorkian of the numbers.”
The comparison between Rosen, whose work in the Office of Legislative Services is overseen by a bipartisan commission, and a physician who assisted suicides in the 1990s was the latest in a litany of insults from the governor. His targets say that when the facts don’t favor him, Christie resorts to calling critics “jerk,” “idiot,” “numbnuts” and the like.
“This is yet another example of the governor’s reprehensible use of name-calling whenever things don’t break his way,” said Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald.
Rosen, 65, declined to comment on the governor’s remarks. The budget and finance chief, who isn’t answerable to Christie, has a doctorate in political science from Rutgers University and has worked on state spending plans since 1991.
The Republican Governor of New Jersey and resident conservative heavyweight champion of bullying got knocked down for the count when a new poll by Survey USA News in New Jersey told him to stay out of the 2012 Presidential election.
