No, I see it, but I also understand why he does it, because it's Jersey. If it were Georgia, he would have to kiss conservative butt.
But then the gov would have have been most likely a conservative. If Christie ran as a liberal then this wouldn't have shocked me but he ran as a right leaning republican so I guess his true colors are showing. He will never get my vote either for reelection or for any higher office.
