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

Tipping Point?

I keep wondering when Christie does or says something so inept that his honeymoon with the press finally ends.

Does going to Disney during the blizzard of the century - at the same time your Lt Governor is also away - qualify?

Rosi at Blue Jersey makes the case:
We do a news roundup every day here (except, uh, when I  get stuck somewhere without wifi), with glowing coverage of Chris Christie. This week we saw something different, even after the troubling lack of transparency from Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak about LG Kim Guadagno's whereabouts. Local NJ news became national news. Here's a roundup of news coverage of Christie's irresponsible week at Disney World, after the jump:
Look at Rosi's list - it's very, very long.

We pretty much know how he's going to respond come Monday: someone else's fault, nothing I could do anyway, not that big a deal, quit whining, etc. The real question is whether the press lets him get away with it.

We'll see...
