TRENTON - In a bold stroke of hypocrisy, Governor Christie stated in an interview on Conversations at NJPAC with Steve Adubato that aired last night that President Obama "executed very well on leadership during the storm. That doesn't in any way change my view of his failure to lead in the first three years of his administration on a whole wide variety of issues."
Just this weekend, the governor was quoted as saying that the storm "erased the blackboard" and that he could not "imagine that there's anything else that's relevant...to talk about."
Apparently, the governor does not feel that 9.6% unemployment, the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation, a shrinking middle class, or an increasing poverty rate are relevant. Perhaps he should look in the mirror if he wants to attack someone for their "failure to lead in the first three years of his administration on a whole wide variety of issues."

"It's incredible, it's a dream. I would never have imagined that I would be running for mayor, but to have Ken Gibson say that, I didn't expect it. Having Ken Gibson on my side is the ultimate reference check. It's the ultimate in street credibility. Mr. Gibson said it, when he was running for mayor, people said that they weren't ready, but Mr. Gibson said 'ready or not, here I come.' I think that's apropos for my campaign. Newark is ready for this." Newark Mayoral candidate Ras Baraka- PolitickerNJ.com
