I enjoy signing up to Democrat e-mail newsletters, Save Jerseyans; it gives you perspective as to what their upcoming attacks and extremist proposals will look like.
Yesterday morning, Barack Obama’s New Jersey campaign sent out an e-mail saying that Gov. Chris Christie is on Romney’s short list for VP (I hope he is!) and that our Governor’s name has recently come back up as a possible pick. The e-mail goes on to say that New Jerseyans have to get “the truth” out about our Governor.
Team Obama has even created a website to collect stories from Jerseyans about Gov. Chris Christie and are encouraging their supporters to share their stories, “to hold him accountable on the campaign trail.”
As conservatives, I think we should submit our own stories to team Obama’s new website. Like the story of how Gov. Chris Christie capped property taxes at 2%. Or perhaps how Gov. Chris Christie saved New Jersey’s pension system for state workers. Or what about the story were Gov. Chris Christie proposed lowering everyone’s income tax rate by 10% and Democrats did nothing?
Let’s show team Obama that we are going to hold them accountable! Submit your Chris Christie story to team Obama here.
The full text of Team Obama’s email is below the fold…
What would you say if I told you Mitt Romney is choosing our own Governor Chris Christie for the VP slot on his GOP ticket?
It’s time to start thinking about it.
Gov. Christie is on Romney’s VP short list and has been for some time. This week his name crept back into the news, and with Romney expected to announce any day now, New Jerseyans have a job to do.
Most Americans don’t know much about our governor. If and when Romney selects him, those who know him best — and that’s us, New Jersey — need to be able to share the truth about Chris Christie from the get-go.
Share what you think Americans need to know about Governor Christie, and why a Romney-Christie administration would be a giant step back for middle-class families.
Your feedback will help hold Christie accountable on the campaign trail, if it should come to that.
As you know, there’s no lack of material to work with here. Right now, it’s our responsibility to make sure others know what they’d be getting into, too.
