Here is an Obama Bow that I too agree with. Perhaps Obama was merely acknowledging Chris Christie’s superior Chief Executive skills. Chris Christie is not one to let politics stand in the way of doing the right thing for the people. He knows how to fight the special interest by giving them a taste of their own medicine.
Christie: […]The state teachers union said–they had a rally in Trenton against me. 35,000 people came from the teachers. You know what that rally was? The “me first” rally. “Pay me my raise first. Pay me my free health benefits first. Pay me my pension first. And everybody else in New Jersey, get to the back of the line.” Well, you know what? I’m not going to sit by and allow that to go unnoticed, so we’ll shine a bright light on it, and we’ll see how the people react. But I think we are seeing how the people of New Jersey are reacting, and that’s how you make it politically palatable in other states in the country. Just shine a bright light on greed and self-interest.”
Sister Toldjah sees the rise of a new breed of Strong Republican Governors. I see a rise of a new breed of Strong Republicans period. There are some new Republicans out there who (to borrow a phrase from my friend Sam at The Last Tradition) “piss standing up”. They are less concerned about political expediency and more concerned about doing the right thing for the people. In doing so, they are willing to withstand the hot blast of hatred from their political foes. Some obvious examples would be Palin, Bachmann, Brewer, Christie and West. I sure you can think of others.
If we want to reclaim our republic, we are going to need more strong politicians like these guys. We will most certainly need them on the left as well, especially since self-serving socialists have hijacked the Democratic Party.
