NJ, here we come...

New Jersey, Little Greece by Mona Charen
Governor Christie is inviting voters to consider a definition of “fairness” very different from President Obama’s.

"...Christie’s proposed economies — in addition to the one-year salary freeze, he wants teachers and administrators to contribute 1.5 percent of their salaries to the cost of their medical coverage — have provoked thousands of teachers to take to the streets, Athens style. They’ve started a Facebook page that excoriates the governor to the delight of its 68,000 fans. And the NJEA has spent $1.8 million on an anti-Christie ad campaign since January.

...This is one to watch. "

Every clip of Christie I've seen has been overstuffed with awesomeness. Even if I disagreed with the guy, I'd respect his straightforwardness. It is refreshing after so much nuanced non-committal gobbledygook from other so-called leaders.
