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

Nothing Left To Say

I mean, how to you begin to negotiate with a man who says this about teachers:
"Scaring students in the classroom, scaring parents with the notes home in the bookbags, and the mandatory 'Project Democracy Homework' asking your parents about what they're going to do in the school board election, and reporting back to your teachers union representatives, using the students like drug mules to carry information back to the classroom, is reprehensible."
He's really lost it. And then, right after I post about how the NJEA should not bring the guv's kids into this fight, he says:
Christie also said some teachers "have decided that even our families are not out of bounds." He said his "nieces and nephews who go to public school have been told by their teachers that the governor, your uncle, is an awful person." 
Does he want reporters to go check up on his sources for this? What kind of a guy drags his nieces and nephews into this fight?

This has always been political and it has always been personal. But what we're really starting to see is a guy who just doesn't have the temperament for high office. Remember:

It's the new math.
