Christie urges Brevard voters to give Crist title of Loser
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was characteristically blunt in firing up a crowd of about 200 supporters of fellow Republican Rick Scott, the Florida governor in a tight race for re-election.
Most of the online buzz about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is still focused on his recent statement:
This doesn’t mean that Christie is so tired of Americans being overworked and underpaid that he wants the minimum wage raised without any further discussion.
The opposite is true.
Christie voted against raising New Jersey’s minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 an hour, despite the good people of New Jersey paying him $175,000 a year, plus benefits.
It stands to reason that any candidate accepting Christie’s support is also “tired of hearing about the minimum wage” … tired in a way that will keep constituents overworked and underpaid.
Since the day he took office, Governor Scott had a lot of governmental business to address in Brevard County … Gannett’s Florida Today turf. Brevard, to the best of my knowledge, still has the most unresolved conviction corruption of any county in Florida.
It’s no wonder that Florida Today is becoming more shameless in stringing together quotes in support of a governor that doesn’t believe in justice.
They need Scott to serve a second term to help them keep it under wraps just how many corrupt government personnel they’ve helped put (and keep) on the public payroll, some of whom they assisted, after their retirement, with articles that whitewashed over historic corruption, so that former the “public servants” could happily into new careers … often at the local college.
Conversely, couldn’t-care-less-about-constituents Rick Scott needs Gannett’s newspapers and news stations.
So does Chris Christie, obviously.
Who else is going to describe Christie as “blunt” when he’s instead just clueless and crude.
