Chris Christie: "It's None Of Your Business"

Chris Christie: "It's None of Your Business"

More of the same from Governor Belligerent. When asked a perfectly reasonable question "You don't send your children to public schools, you send them to private schools. So I was wondering why you think it's fair to be cutting school funding to public schools." The inference wasn't to his Honor's liking though, so, as his wont to do, he made it personal. There were a few things wrong with the testiness of his reply though, besides his usual grating lack of manners. First, as a public official, where he sends his own kids for their schooling is a matter of some interest to his constituents. No one begrudges him for going the private route, for security reasons if nothing else, but pols in similar positions do gain some props for using the public system. Second, the $38k he pays in property taxes he likes to crow about so often did nothing to dispel the notion that he's cutting programs and services because he feels his own damn taxes are too high (as does everyone else in New Jersey). Third, ending "with all due respect, Gale, it's none of your business" was sarcastic and snotty, and completely unwarranted. He might just as well have ended it with "and shove it up your...."

Republicans think this clown has a calling for the highest office in the land. Rude, bullying "straight-talk" might be a hot commodity with them but it's not a such hot selling feature for the rest of us.
