Finally! A Republican with a spine of steel. NJ Gov. Chris Christie tells it like it is.
Via Save Jersey: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie confronts liberal reporter Tom Moran. “When was the last time we saw a Republican elected official display this much backbone with the media…? Not since Reagan…”


Transcript
According to Politico: “The reporter, Star-Ledger columnist Tom Moran, was inquiring about a contentious school voucher bill the governor is trying to push through the state Legislature.”

After profiling Christie for his looks, The Hill reports what really matters, “Christie is tackling the nation’s worst state deficit — $10.7 billion of a $29.3 billion budget. In doing so, Christie has become the politician so many Americans crave, one willing to lose his job. Indeed, Christie is doing something unheard of: governing as a Republican in a blue state, just as he campaigned, making good on promises, acting like his last election is behind him.

Upon taking office Christie declared a state of emergency, signing an executive order that froze spending, and then, in eight weeks, cutting $13 billion in spending. In March he presented to the Legislature his first budget, which cuts 9 percent of spending, including more than $800 million in education funding; seeks to privatize numerous government functions; projects 1,300 layoffs; and caps tax increases.”
