Credit Where It’s Due
Governor Christie starts making the tough decisions. They won’t be popular decisions, and I take issue with the use of the “state of emergency” device from a distrust-of-power standpoint, but it’s pretty clear the Governor is taking his job seriously. Good for him, although I’ll wait for state paleocon treasure Paul Mulshine to weigh in before I make my final judgment. The true test will come when the governor has to put forward and fight for a budget for next fiscal year, but this is an encouraging (to me, at least) first step.
