    Don't you just love how the media ignores tax cheats and outright lying politicians on the left? How about when they use "uncivil discourse" when describing the tea party or conservative women?

    But when a conservative like Christie says it like it is, the headlines read "Borderline Unethical".

    I'll take a politician that makes "borderline unethical" statements any day over "totally corrupt" actions.

    What say you?

    The issue is whether ALL state employees should contribute more to the pension system, or everyone except the judges, who overruled the Governor's mandate.

    New Jersey bar president calls Christie criticism 'borderline unethical'

    Isn't he right?

    Christie calling out anyone for self interest decisions is an example of hypocrisy. Self interest decision exists on the left, on the right, in the middle and is the guiding principle of capitalism. Making it solely a fault of the left is another example of hypocrisy.

    I'm confused. Are you agreeing with the governor? Should ALL state employees "share the pain" or just those who don't wear a robe?

    Your headline reads "New Jersey bar president calls Christie criticism 'borderline unethical'." Typical he said, she said journalism.

    A similar headline would be "Gov. Christie calls Sen. Lautenberg a 'partisan hack' for his criticism of proposed Rutgers-Rowan merger."

    Did that lead to days of soul-searching over Lautenberg's degree of hackitude or did no one care what combative phrase one public figure hurled at another? Was that proof the media is out to get "politicians on the left" because it doesn't put the words "partisan hack" in enough news stories about politicians on the right? Perhaps to someone on the left with a weird victim mentality but otherwise no.

    Borderline? Republicans have been unethical for the last 20 years. They don't even hide it anymore.

    Ah yes, but look who provides their guiding philosophy. According to Randian philosophy, anyone that minds societal ethics and morals is weak and unworthy of being a leader. Only those that are strong enough to be completely amoral are worthy of leadership according to the person whose philosophy Ryan and the rest follow.

    Well deanie missed the point. Again.Sigh.

    People on both sides of the aisle agree with Christie on this issue. The point is that the writer completely left that out and decided to make this hit piece on the governor.

    Should judges be exempt from the new pension rules? Yes or no.
