    Gov. Chris Christie finally returned from Walt Disney World on Friday, but he remained in Fantasy Land at a news conference later in the day. He came to Monmouth County, of all places, to praise his administration for its work during the blizzard, giving it an A for effort and a B+ for execution.

    Office of the Governor
    -----------------------------------------------

    Seems Gov. Christie was angry his "dinner" was interrupted. After all, a man has to eat and eat.

    His family was vacationing in Disney World. Can't a man have time to do what's important? Besides, he has a Lt. Gov.

    Oh, wait, the Lt. Gov. was on vacation too and not even in the state. Oops.

    Now we know what happens when Republicans put people in power while screaming "Less Government!". They get "No Government".

    And now, their "fiscal" Messiah has handed the next election to whoever runs against him. When leaders mismanage local disasters, people never forget. All they remember is the snow, the trash and people dying. Katrina was easy to forget. It was so far away. In New Jersey, everything is very close by, unless you're "Snowed In".

    $1.5m of taxpayers money for the First Family to vacation in Hawaii over Christmas. Just saying.

    Seems to me if an executive needs to be in place to do something like snow removal, (when snow removal in NJ during the winter is pretty much business as usual) then there's something wrong with the system.

    It's not that, though. A Lt. Gov was hired because it happened too often that the Gov was out of state with no one to fill in...now they were both out of town. A bit of mismanagement there, not to mention a waste of taxpayer money for the salary.

    But Republicans are allowed to goof off and waste taxpayer money with impunity.

    Christie screwed up. He would not have tolerated such performance out of anyone else and he should have manned up and said "We will not let this happen again"

    The state roads were a mess. Poorly plowed and impassable for days. Local roads plowed by towns were pretty good. Once you hit the state road you were stuck for hours. Christie cut back on public works and the state suffered. For him to make his "Heckuva job Brownie" speech showed his true character.

    There is no way both the Governor and Lt Governor should have been out of state at the same time. After 200 years, NJ finally establishes a Lt Governor position and she is on vacation the same time as the Governor.

    Christie showed how he acts in a crisis and it was not pretty

    When in doubt..deflect.

    This thread is about Christie.

    And his administration's effectiveness in actually getting stuff done..with a smaller budget.

    You know..the mantra..more with less?

    No one from New Jersey made it in to the place where I worked..unless they stayed in a hotel overnight in Manhattan.

    That speaks volumes.

    Compared to $200 million a day to visit India, that is not bad

    Christie is now in the sacred zone of blind wingnut adoration now, so that anything he does will get automatically defended to the death by the usual suspects.

    Get used to it.
