Attention all conservatives and Republican milquetoasts!
Watch this video and pay attention:
That is how you deal with a complicit media that insists on towing the liberal line. The media will trash you regardless of what you say or believe, so you might as well show some cajones and stand up for yourself and your beliefs.
More importantly, let this sear into your brain:
Christie said he isn’t bothered when tempers flare in the state’s political dialogue, pointing out that he intends to be tough in his opposition to Democratic initiatives.
“They believe in certain things. They believe in bigger government, higher taxes and more spending,” the governor said. “I believe in less government, less taxes and in empowering local officials who were elected by their citizens. Now I can see where there could be a disagreement or two.”
“Now I could say it really nicely. We could say it in a way you all would be more comfortable with. Maybe we could go back to the last administration where I could say it in a way that you wouldn’t understand it,” Christie said, taking a swipe at Democratic former Gov. Jon Corzine. “But the fact of the matter is, this is who I am and this is who the people elected.”
See that? This is a recipe for electoral victory–smaller government, lower taxes and less spending. That applies to our national politics under the Obama administration as much as it does in New Jersey.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
Like I’ve been saying, conservatives and Republicans all over should be paying attention to what Christie’s doing here in New Jersey.
He’s taken on the powerful teachers union, Democrats in the state legislature and a local media that is mostly sympathetic to their cause. But like the Governor said, the people of New Jersey have spoken. He’s just doing what they sent him to Trenton for. Plain and simple.
UPDATE. It seems the babies over at the Star-Ledger (the journalist he pawned works there) have pulled the video. Just shows that the governor is pissing off all the right people.
