My Contempt for Chris Christie Comes to the Fore Again

I have long held New Jersey governor Chris Christie in contempt, not only for his bullying nature, but for his scuttling of a much-needed sub-Hudson railway tunnel project. Well, now, seven years later, the Gateway Tunnel Program is in the news again, with Donald Trump seeming to agree to the project, at least at this moment.

I'm not exactly optimistic about the funding for the project- besides the money needed for post-multiple-hurricane recovery, the upcoming Debt Ceiling conflict bodes ill for any large infrastructure projects that would benefit 'blue' America. This project should have been funded seven years ago, but that would have been a victory for the Kenyan Usurper and those liberals in the New York City metropolitan area. If it had been started back then, the damn thing would probably have been finished by now.

This rankles me, too--think of the jobs an infrastructure program like this would create, and the increased business that comes with ease of traffic, and it's freaking frustrating that the party that claims they understand what's good for the economy can't sort out, um, what would actually be good for the economy. They only good I see in Trump is, he seems to have disdain for the debt ceiling crisis that happens every handful of months and how it's used as a political tool (badly) and probably isn't an anti-East Coast snob, being from here. So here's me actually saying something nice about Trump to highlight the point that Christie really is a horse's ass.

(He went for a freaking mall in the Meadowlands. Like New Jersey needed another to be abandoned mall--like immediately post the economic crisis of 2008, let's build a mall. Which is not going to host profitable businesses because that's not the current market. Just a staggering money-suck.)

I think he didn't want the creation of jobs that the Kenyan Usurper would be credited with creating.
