And now New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is warning against a nation filled with “a bunch of people sittin’ on a couch waiting for their next government check.”… “I think it’s really simple: it’s because government’s now telling them ‘stop dreaming, stop striving, we’ll take care of you.’ We’re turning into a paternalistic entitlement society.”
That would bethis Chris Christie, who’s made living large on the government’s dime a way of life.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has elevated his national political profile as a conservative cost-cutter since taking the state’s highest office, used taxpayer money to stay at luxury hotels while serving as a federal prosecutor, according to a new Justice Department report.
Christie exceeded the federal government’s set lodging rates by as much as $242 per night on 15 occasions between 2007 and 2009, states the report by Justice’s inspector general.
And the same Chris Christie who not onlycommandeered a fucking State helicopter to take him to his kid’s baseball game, but who then demanded a motorcade for the roughly one hundred yards between landing site and diamond.
So now he’s accusing of of being lazy for…thinking that our government, which, last I checked, was still at least nominally a democracy, i.e., self-government, i.e., ourselves, can do more than just incarcerate and/or tase us? Oh, speaking of lazy, Chris either wouldn’t or couldn’t do the math when a major public works project was on the line (search the transcript for “tunnel”).
What a guy…
