I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

"Nobody could have foreseen..."

Sharon GR over at the Center of NJ Life makes a very good point regarding Christie's whining that he didn't know things would be so bad:
Second: We all know how bad were the fiscal problems you inhereted were; we all did. If you didn't, I suggest in the future you read the newspaper. Be aware how utterly disingenuous you sound every time you complain about it- and then insist you're not complaining about it.
Disingenuous is exactly right: he knew what he was in for. He knew what he wanted to do. He lied about it during the campaign.

Remember back in the 2000 campaign, when W told us we had to cut taxes on the rich because the surplus could get too big. And then, when the deficit grew, the cure was - cut taxes for the rich!

It's the same here. Christie had an agenda - busting public unions - coming in no matter what. He's not responding to anything, and it sounds both disingenuous and stupid when he pretends otherwise.

Check out Sharon's blog while you're there. The libraries are getting screwed big time.
