Here is video of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie talking about the massive effort that will be needed to rebuild New Jersey’s shoreline attractions, and to help the people who lost their homes and businesses in Hurricane Sandy. Christie pledged to do whatever it takes, and said bluntly, “This is our Katrina.”
Here is aerial video footage showing the devastation left by Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York.
This video is a good example of why New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie strikes a chord with people – even if they don’t like all of his policy views. He is blunt – not always using the politically-correct speak that most politicians use.
Here he tells people it’s time to take cover from approaching Hurricane Irene, and he flatly says, “Get the hell off the beach!. . . You’re done. It’s 4:30. You’ve maximized your tan.”
NJ union leader Chris Shelton calls NJ Gov. Chris Christie “Adolf Christie” in a speech after welcoming the crowd to “Nazi Germany.” Shelton said, “Adolf Christie and his two generals are trying to make New Jersey Nazi Germany” by “going after the unions.” He concluded, “It took World War II to get rid of the last Adolf Hitler, it’s going to take World War III to get rid of Adolf Christie! Are you ready for World War III?”

Here is video of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie being interviewed by ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer about his ongoing battle with the state’s Teacher’s Union. Christie praised the vast majority of teachers as outstanding, but said they need as union as good as they are. He then said very bluntly that “their union are a group of political thugs.”
Here is video of web ad by New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie to put pressure on the New Jersey State Legislature. He has set before them the choice of passing health and benefits reform, which will enable him to pass some of that savings on to taxpayers in the form of doubling property tax relief — or refusing to do so and preventing that tax relief to taxpayers.
Christie really knows what he is doing. What a future he has!
Here is video of Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney discussing several New Jersey Union Workers who have been suspended for calling in sick in order to participate in a protest to support the Union effort in Wisconsin against Gov. Scott Walker. According to Varney, the workers had jobs that involved transporting people, including the elderly and the disabled, to doctors and other places. They were reportedly left without transportation as a result.
Varney talked with New Jersey Republican State Senator Joe Kyrillos about the situation, but went beyond that to also discuss how New Jersey is approaching collective-bargaining rights with public sector worker unions. Kyrillos said the GOP and Gov. Chris Christie are trying to reform pension and health care legislation to avoid taking away collective-bargaining rights. Stuart Varney disagreed strongly with the State Senator, telling him it won’t work – that in the end, they must take away collective-bargaining for taxpayers to be fairly represented and treated in the negotiations with unions.
Here is video of New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie laying out the blunt truth to a police officer who complained to Christie about his proposal that would require them to pay a portion of their health insurance.
Christie responded that he understood the officer’s frustration, but he told him that the contracts that cities in New Jersey has with the police unions are often “obscene.” He particularly cited an example in which three police officers were able to “cash out” unusued sick leave when they retired at a cost of $900,000! The city they worked for had to borrow money to pay them!
The way Christie put it was that he was sorry he happens to be the guy in office “when the party’s over.”
Here is video of New Jersey GOP Governor Chris Christie commenting on James O’Keefe’s latest expose video, which exposed some New Jersey teachers slamming Christie and bragging about how they can’t be fired for anything once they get tenure. Christie said the expose video shows exactly what he has been talking about in his battles with the teacher unions.
I think that this video makes the distinction better than I ever could. This is their leadership conference where they’ re in a hotel, having this leadership conference, singing songs together about kicking the governor in his tool box. I wonder what they mean by that? But I can tell you I sense it would hurt.
