    Dumb, dumb dumb...

    U.S. News - NJ Gov. Christie vetoes same-sex marriage bill

    I've always been a critic of judges who decide they are going to disregard the will of legistlatures and the populace and impose these things, but here's a case where they did it the right way, they passed a bill, and Christie the Hutt decides he's stull sucking up to be RomBot's running mate.

    "I am adhering to what I've said since this bill was first introduced — an issue of this magnitude and importance, which requires a constitutional amendment, should be left to the people of New Jersey to decide,"

    Seems like he wants the people to make the decision. And you have a problem with this?

    Um, yeah, I usually do when people appeal to bigotry to advance their political careers.

    Christy is a fat sack of shit.

    Whats the big deal, as an elected Governor he exorcised his right to veto a bill he didn't like.

    If people are really that bent out of shape about it, they'll vote him out next time.

    Well, I don't agree that there is a constitutional "right" to gay marriage.

    But I think that the crafting of laws should be left to the legistlature. That's their function. And unlike a referendum, they have the time and ability to craft laws.

    The veto power of a governor or president should be reserved for instances when a legislature acts irresponsibly. Here, it hasn't.

    Christy is just sucking up to a larger national stage. Because he knows his fat ass is probalby done in the Gubenertorial election of 2013.

    Which they probably will. Which is why he's sucking up to the far right and hoping he ends up somewhere in a hypothetical Romney Administration.

    Seriously I could give a fuck. The Governor is within his rights and he wants the people to vote on it. Sounds damned fair to me. But then since I'm not living in New Jersey it's not my problem. The people who live there will handle it the way they want to.
