It is no secret that Governor Christie has aspirations for higher public office. We all know he's got hopes of one day running for president. So doing nothing is not an option for him and in fact would most likely prove fatal to any hopes he has of becoming the Republican presidential nominee in 2016.
It just feels so heinous to me that any politician can so callously and transparently use the basic rights of a whole segment of his or her constituent population to advance their own political career. Especially when we all know that Chris Christie will NEVER be the Republican's nominee for president. He is no favorite of mine, but he is really loathed by the Republican base. He is just not enough of a psychopath to be a viable candidate for this crowd. So a whole segment of New Jersey's population will just have to endure the tortuous highs and lows of this battle so Governor Christie can play this game out. And it will be their rights he'll use as bargaining chips to try and please a crowd who will never love him back.
