Governor Christie: “Time to Hold Hands and Jump Off the Cliff”

Posted by Dan Draney on March 2, 2010

Boy was I wrong about NJ Governor Chris Christie. I was afraid he would turn out to be another Tom Kean or Christie Todd Whitman, and continue to tax the state into oblivion. Instead, the new governor is showing incredible leadership in tackling the root cause of NJ’s troubles: out of control public sector spending. There’s a partial transcript of his speech to the mayors at Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis: Governor Christie: “Time to Hold Hands and Jump Off the Cliff” – Chris Christie For President?. Here’s the lead-in to that post.

Governor Christie: “Time to Hold Hands and Jump Off the Cliff” – Chris Christie For President?

In an amazingly candid appraisal of the sorry state of affairs in New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie laid it on the line in a speech to about 200 mayors at the New Jersey League of Municipalities.

The speech is 24 minutes long and well worth a listen because it is both an honest admission of the problem, and a refreshingly accurate appraisal of what the solutions are. He chastised the legislature, unions, municipalities, and affordable housing initiatives while promising to do something about all of those.

Follow the link to read the partial transcript and/or watch the whole speech. Incredible. Did I say that before?

    We’ve seen some remarkable steps taken in the last few days to try to get a lasso around the neck of the beast. Too bad they’re (so far) just voices in the wilderness.
