Fixing the Smithsonian roof THAT HAD NOTHING to do with the storm?
All it would have taken was to smack Christie over the head with these facts and re-direct their anger where it belonged then perhaps the Republicans could look relevant for once in the last 40yrs.
You got that right Ed! If the republicans were capable of getting their message out, they would have won the election and the fiscal cliff argument. But they seem incapable of doing so. People don't realize how precarious our fiscal situation is. We are very close to a point of no return. Democrats are in denial and republicans are impotent. We are truly screwed.
We are suffering from a severe lack of leadership from either party. Congress is a joke and obama is worse. At one time I thought Christie could be the leader that the country needs but I just don't know anymore. We need someone to talk directly to the people who can delver the bad news (and it is real bad) and at the same time offer the leadership to start us on a real path out of it. not likley to happen.
