Judas is on fire!
Hurricane Sandy was a big opportunity for him to display his power-wielding skills; and he delivered the goods.
New Jerseyans, both Republican and Democrat, are infatuated with Christie's ability to squeeze that iron fist.
- When there are gas stations (and hotels) that try to charge market prices....Christie will slap a lawsuit on them.
- When there are contracts that need to be broken...Christie will break them.
- When there are private companies that need to be bullied...Christie will bully them.
- When there are lines at the gas pump...Christie will order people to go home - and not form them.
When it's time to get the rest of the nation to pay for damages, Christie is the man!
Judas hit a grandslam, and the polls numbers are reflecting it.
The Washington Post reports:
Christie has seen a massive boost in his popularity in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, with 77 percent of New Jerseyans saying they approve of the governor in a new Fairleigh Dickinson University poll released Monday. That’s up from 56 percent before Sandy.
Christie even gets positive marks from 67 percent of Democrats. Just 17 percent of all registered voters in the Garden State say they disapprove of his performance.
Put plainly: For politicians, it doesn’t get much better than that — especially for a Republican in a blue state. (And the numbers, for what it’s worth, match up with recent internal polling conducted for the state GOP.)Judas even has beltway libertarians in his pocket:
On the back of all this support, Christie has decided to file for re-election in 2013.
Another term as Governor is a perfect stepping stone to the grand prize known as the U.S. Presidency.
You want a taste of the iron fist America?
Someone to clean up Obama's mess?
Just wait until 2016.
