American Governor

Matt Katz, an accomplished journalist, has authored a new book about presidential aspirant and the 55th governor of our fine state of New Jersey, Christopher James Christie.  It is titled American Governor: Chris Christie’s Bridge To Redemption.  I’m thoroughly enjoying the book, and highly commend it for a behind-the-scenes look at politics in the state and the making of a presidential candidate.  You can get a flavor of it from Matt’s excellent presentation to the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers on January 26, 2016.  I was surprised to learn that the Governor’s approval rating has dropped to 31%, damaged significantly by Bridgegate, and  Matt does his best to preserve journalistic balance within the love/hate relationship that they apparently have.

In case you missed it, Christie delivered some salvos at Marco Rubio during the pre-Super Bowl Republican Debate showcasing the New Hampshire primary players, flashing the Jersey moxie that has made him a larger than life figure.

    I will never forgive Christie for giving Obama that obsequious hug after hurricane Sandy.
