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

Not "Refreshed"

Deciminyan is not feeling "refreshed":
His [Chris Christie's] treatment of dissenting citizens at his “town hall” meetings (especially today’s event in Parsippany) demonstrates the kind of person he is – a bully.  Our governor, who was elected with less than 50% of the vote, has the right to promote his political agenda, but he needs to keep in mind that he is the governor of all of New Jersey, not just his acolytes.  His behavior is more befitting that of a gang leader or a Mafia don and sets a poor example for our kids.  The national media love him because he is a spectacle that appears to give straight talk even though he is obfuscating the truth.  Few reporters on the national level have probed past his tough-man veneer.
Neither is digby:
Uhm, this isn't normal folks.
 No, it's not.

disgRace To The Top did, in fact, cause a subtle shift in perceptions of the governor. We know he's going to step in it again: it's who he is. Will we hit a tipping point soon where everyone except Jim Gearhart's audience and the commenters at NJ.com has had enough of this nonsense?

We'll see...
