RUSH: Governor Christie’s in the news. He was in Trenton yesterday. Held a press conference to make some staff appointment announcements, and during the Q&A he had this to say.
CHRISTIE: You have numb nuts like Reed Gusciora who put out a statement, you know, comparing me to George Wallace and Lester Maddox. Now, you know, come on, guys. At some point you’ve got to be able to call BS on those kind of press releases. I think, quite frankly, that those who say things like that — like Gusciora — should be ashamed of themselves that that they’re desperate to try to change the topic on these issues that they would raise those folks, reprehensible people in America’s history.
RUSH: Numb nuts. “You have numb nuts like Reed Gusciora, who put out a statement comparing me to George Wallace and Lester Maddox!” What Christie’s done that has raised little question marks here, some red flags, is he’s named another judge. And this judge is a supporter of gay marriage. And the judge is a guy who has written of gay marriage being the equivalent to the American civil rights racial movement, and a lot of people say, “Wait a minute now. We thought Governor Christie was this big conservative, and he’s nominating a judge with this record, supporting gay marriage and comparing it to the civil rights?” So, Christie says, “Come on, you got numb nuts like Reed Gusciora, who puts out a statement comparing me to George Wallace and Lester Maddox?” So when it comes to his own political enemies, one thing you can say about Christie: He does not hold back. He’s not out there saying the Democrats in New Jersey mean well but they’re just in over their heads. Christie seeks to destroy these people! I don’t know if he would say that about Obama (chuckling) but about his own enemies he doesn’t hold back. Then he had this to say about the State Assembly and other politicians of New Jersey.
CHRISTIE: They forget where the money comes from. They think it just appears. It comes from your hard work. It comes away from your families! And so now that I want to give some of it back, there’s gonna be every excuse in the book not to give you your money back. And they’re gonna come up with all kinds of spending programs that are better “investments” for New Jersey. Well, let me give you my opinion: There is no better investment than to invest in the people of New Jersey by giving them their money back and lettin’ them spend it. (applause)
RUSH: Chris Christie talking about tax cuts, government spending, and so forth. He talks like that and people eat it up. They just love the guy, they just love the guy. (interruption) Yeah, that’s true, Snerdley’s going back to the archives of the past and saying and asking, “Where did we first hear ‘it’s your money’?” And that, of course, would have been from my oral cavity. I, El Rushbo, way back in the early nineties explained all this: It’s your money. It’s not the government’s. It is your money. I don’t know that Dana Perino is gonna be happy with this, but Christie’s supporters are.
