The Waddling Governor

This is what corruption looks like.
Screw you people of New Jersey
Screw you people of New Jersey
There is a governor on the East Coast of the United States who should be impeached. There is no doubt that he has violated ethic rules, even in the great state of New Jersey they do have rules against wasting government money. He may have committed criminal offenses by using a government helicopter for his own personal use. This fathead finally will reimburse the state to the tune of a few thousand dollars. He made the trip to watch his son play baseball and then rush back to his office to meet with some supporters who wanted to talk to him about running for the Presidency in 2012; how ridiculous is that? He is a republican, a corrupt republican.

During his press conference he came across as being annoyed that anyone would question him, he blamed the press for creating a scandal out of nothing. He told the reporters that he knew they were having fun at his expense, he said he has important things to do and would write a check for the cost of the use of the helicopter---seemed annoyed at the whole affair. He should be arrested.

Christie is so far removed from reality that he thinks he can do whatever he wants, and the people of New Jersey can go fly-a-kite. This is just another of his major mistakes that will be his downfall. The people of New Jersey have had it with this pompous ass. From what I can find out his ratings are low, about 40% think he is doing a good job. If that is true he should be run out of office on just being a dense politician who can't or won't look at how popular he is with his constituents---Run for President indeed!

The democrats in the state of New Jersey should demand an investigation into his governorship from the date he was sworn in as the new executive. This man cries out for a full investigation, will it be done---don't think so.

The United States does not like holding anyone accountable anymore, it seems it went out of fashion about ten years ago. We don't hold war criminals accountable, we honor them. We don't hold thieves accountable unless they rob a liquor store, rob the American people and you get a bigger bonus. Destroy the Gulf of Mexico and we will give you new tax breaks. Maybe the fat man is right, why are we making so much noise about him screwing us over the use of a chopper, when there are bigger fish to fry.

The answer should be because we are people of laws, and no one is above the law!

So my friends, is this enough to wake you up? It is spring in America, do you think we could have something like what they are doing in the rest of the world, rebelling against corruption? Maybe we could have a huge sit in someplace, or just visit some politician's office and make him/her nervous. I have been in the streets for over 8 years now waiting for you to join me; another few years is ok. There is one funny part to this story that made me laugh, he had his car waiting for him when the chopper landed because he had to walk about a 100 yards---now, when do we meet in the streets?

Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, "Henry, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?"

You frame this critique as though the Democrats will offer some sort of real, viable non-corrupt alternative that won't pander to (different) corporate interests.

Not surprised that an idiot like the lone vet would find something to smile about from a hate filled liar like KO. Kinda lets everyone know how the progressive mind soaks up hate, stupidity and lies and finds it something to smile about. Sorta like making fun of someone who is overweight. That is real progressive politics, folks, nothing but lies and slander.

Keith Olbermann explains why Republicans should run away from Paul Ryan's medicare reform plan. Many Republicans are instead continuing to be flunkies for the insurance companies, who are the only ones who benefit from Ryan's plan.
