Check out how Gov. Christie deals with a Social Security question

Not a third rail for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). During a visit to Washington, D.C. yesterday, Michael Barone asked Christie if he thought Social Security was still the third rail of politics nobody wanted to touch.

Note the stark difference between how Christie answers the third rail question and how Jay Carney sat there at the White House and tried to convince reporters in the room that continued trillion-dollar deficits did not add to the national debt.


Christie has it right. Leaders are supposed to lead, not sit back and see if other “leaders” get crucified for their ideas. Trial balloons also suck. Come up with a proposal you think will work and push for it.

Christie thinks American’s are ready to “hear the truth” on many topics including Social Security but in reality, I think Americans have been hearing the truth for more than 25 years. It’s just that many felt it had nothing to do with them or they were more than willing to kick the can down the road.

I think the TEA Party movement was somewhat of an awakening. The elephant is now in the room, demanding our attention.

    Forget the next Presidential elections. Let's have a Facebook coup and Put CC in office. We deserve freedom as much as the Arab states!

    There are a lot of people out there who aren't going to be voting on the matter, but the fact that he was asked the question shows that there are more than just a few people out there who want to hear what this guy has to say.  He's turning New Jersey around, and he's doing it without taxing the life out of the middle class/businesses in his state.  He's intelligent, well-spoken and able to connect with his constituents.  I propose we send Malloy packing and find a Christie for CT.

    How refreshing!  A politician that doesn't mince words and spin and obfuscate.


    Able to vote or not, maybe he can shame some of those that can vote into being the leaders that he talks about.
