The U.S. has had the unfortunate experience of having government ranks corrupted by a handful of Tea Party assholes. Having been elected they are now free to fuck up the system until their next election. Woe is them!
Following I quote from that article:
“We have to find ways to compromise with each other,” Christie said. “The place is so dysfunctional; they so don’t talk to each other, they so dislike each other that they can’t get to the common-sense point. I have said this all along with Jersey. I have argued all the time with the legislature. You heard me say a bunch of stuff about the Democrats in the legislature this morning. But I don’t have the luxury to hate. I have a job to do. You elected me to accomplish something, not just to occupy a space.
“I am not going to compromise my principles, because that is who I am, and that is why you elected me. But there is always a boulevard between getting everything you want and compromising your principles. There is always some space there, and the job of a governor or any executive is to find that space.”
If only that could happen up here: Maybe then someone like Bev Oda wouldn’t be able to screw up, resign under a cloud and then keep sucking the left hind tit of the public purse for the rest of her life. At $16 a glass she can afford to buy truckloads with her ill gotten gains. May she choke on it.
I wonder what revelations and opinion he’s going to come up with next?
