"What is it that makes self-proclaimed centrists such easy marks for right-wing con men? Actually, it's not that much of a mystery: the centrist creed is that the two parties are symmetrically extremist, and this means that there must, as a matter of principle, be Serious, Honest Republicans out there — so such people must be invented if they don't actually exist. Hence the elevation of Paul Ryan despite clear evidence of his con-artist nature. And hence, also, the love affair with Chris Christie."
This guy killed the biggest public works project in the country, during a recession, so he could funnel the money from a rail project into new highway contracts. Thus, a massive slush fund for Christie to ladle out, and at the same time artificially keep NJ gas taxes below the prevailing norm. Truly, a great fiscal conservative.
