The Cost of Incompetence

Candidate Chris Christie made a point over and over again about his fight against corruption in New Jersey government as US attorney. And Gov. Chris Christie made it a point to vilify, bully, and denigrate the teachers of the NJEA.

He even made a joke about it when questioned by Star-Ledger reporter Tom Moran. Doesn't seem quite as funny now, does the governor Christie?


  • Gov. Chris Christie asked the teachers in New Jersey to give up their pay raises.
  • Gov. Chris Christie asked New Jersey voters last April to vote against their local school budgets.
  • Gov. Chris Christie took a hard stand against the NJEA and all that organization did for the past who knows how many years to make New Jersey schools the best schools in the country.

And what did Chris Christie give back for all he asked? Incompetence.

$400 million. For that same amount of money, the following could have been provided:

5200 Elementary School Teachers for One Year.

Or 44,600 Head Start Slots for Children for One Year.

Or the 33,706 University Scholarships for High School Students for One Year.

So Gov. Christie, when Tom Moran asks you about your administration's incompetence and what that means for the citizens of New Jersey, are you going to laugh about that, too?

Let us all recall the deathwish memo sent out by the Bergen County Education Association as reported by HuffPo:

Dear Lord this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor."

Yeah you dems sure are a lovely lot.

How come Obama wants to pay for the education of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS yet refuses to give NJ money over a technical error?

Oh... because Obama & Rahm are playing politics with NJ's students. Had Corzine made the same problem Old Obama would break out the whiteout and fix it right up.

But not for Christie because of that (R) after his name.

Thanks Obama and Joey for using our children for your political games. Pretty sickening if you ask me....

Maybe Christie needs to take as many vacations as Obama does.

Remember to report "fishy" statements to flag@whitehouse.gov

Good point, though sometimes it's hard to arrive to definite conclusions
