    Dude deserved to be fired.

    Are you implying that the Gov should have resigned or took the blame?

    Well, since he stated that he would take the blame last week, it's a bit hypocritical to turn around and fire the guy a week later. But yeah, he probably deserved to get fired.

    I don't know about you, but I'm well past the point of expecting politicians to be honest or responsible.

    Why is it hypocritical? What do you expect him to do? Apologize for someone in his administration for fucking up and then do nothing about it? That'll do a lot of good. He removed the guy from the position and in doing so hopefully solved the problem so that it doesn't happen again. That doesn't make him a hypocrite. He's taking responsibility.

    Christie probably shouldn't of vowed to not fire anybody in the first place. By vowing that, and then going back on it by firing someone is hypocritical.

    It's really the story that's entertaining. Christie told us whose fault it really is on August 25:

    But the very next day on August 26:
    Whoops.

    Schundler is a right wing conservative Republican who has failed in general elections numerous times. He was appointed by Christie as a token to the Conservatives

    Turns out the NJ voters were right about Shundler
