Chris Christie Takes State Helicopter To Son's Ballgame

Chris Christie takes state helicopter to son's ballgame

Only surprising by the amount of gall this "fiscal conservative" brazenly displays.

Associated Press:

MONTVALE, N.J. -- Criticism started coming in like fastballs Wednesday over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's use of a state helicopter to fly him and his wife to his son's high school baseball game.

Christie, a former federal prosecutor who has been courted to run for president because of his get-tough approach to state spending, and wife Mary Pat arrived just before the game between Delbarton High School and St. Joseph's of Montvale in Montvale on Tuesday night.

The pair stepped off the helicopter and into a car waiting nearby, which drove them 100 yards to the baseball field.

Flanked by state police troopers, the Christies watched the game from the stands until the fifth inning. Play was stopped briefly while the helicopter took off.

Governor Christie is in Iowa today, repeating to every republican begging asking him that he is not there for a future presidential run.
