Dick Cheney dropped in on Chris Christie’s Mendham neighbor Neil Cavuto on Monday, Save Jerseyans, and he expounded on a number of topics including the current front runner for the 2016 GOP Republican nomination:
“I watched him operate. I wasn’t a fan of the way he welcomed Barack Obama to New Jersey when the hurricane hit,” the former Vice President opined, but allowed that Christie “was the governor of New Jersey; he did what he thought was necessary.”
It’s beginning to feel like the holidays outside across the Garden State. The Farmers’ Almanac predicted a “bitterly cold winter” for the Northeast this year, Save Jerseyans, including a storm in time for the New Jersey super bowl.
We can deal with it. Paying for it, however, might be a different matter altogether.
New Jersey energy consumers need to brace for significantly higher energy expenses for winter 2013.
The likely catalysts are twofold and all of the culprits are familiar…
Building on criticism lodged last week in a committee hearing, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) continued to take shots at Governor Chris Christie on Monday, Save Jerseyans, this time from the Harbour Club in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, a key 2016 primary battleground.
“The main theme of his candidacy seems to be, I got you a lot of federal money,” Paul reportedly responded when asked why he considers the New Jersey Governor a “moderate” Republican (h/t theRun2016). “It doesn’t sound like a conservative message. It sounds like a moderate to big government message.”
“I’m not arguing against aid,” Paul continued. “I’m just arguing that the fiscally responsible way to do that aid would’ve been one year at a time and offsetting it with spending cuts elsewhere.” We can’t really disagree with him there.
Quinnipiac’s results remain mostly unchanged while Rutgers Eagleton reports a 10-point jump since their last survey. It’s a stark reminder of how unpredictable the Christie landslide really is even at this late hour, Save Jerseyans.
For what it’s worth, Patrick Murray’s Monmouth Poll was the special senate election’s most accurate public survey. The margin has tightened a bit since Monmouth’s last poll but the Governor still enjoys a 20-point lead, a result which insiders tell Save Jersey is actually at the upper-range of Christie camp projections (they’re bracing for a double-digit win int he 12-15% range)…

The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation announced yesterday that they are awarding $1.5 million to New Jersey youth serving agencies for repairs to recreational facilities and equipment that were damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
The announcement took place at the headquarters of the Puerto Rican Association for Human Development in Perth Amboy, in a play room that has recently been renovated with the first $100 thousand distributed of the $1.5 million dollar grant.
“The first person I saw when I got off the helicopter was a woman. She saw me and she burst into tears. And she said to me ‘everything’s gone, you have to help me.’ I think people wanted me to tell them that it was gonna be ok, and that I wouldn’t forget them. And I know that there’s nothing more important for me to do as Governor than to complete the mission of bringing their lives back to normal. I know we still have work to do, but I really believe, finally, New Jersey’s moving in the right direction.”
Governor Christie consistently acknowledges that the Sandy recovery effort is incomplete. Many affected residents, however, remain less than satisfied with the progress made thus far.
He’s the country’s most prominent Republican, Save Jerseyans, so when he grants an increasingly rare interview to the mainstream media on one specific issue (today it happened to be the one year anniversary of Sandy), you can be sure they’ll try to get him to comment on just about every topic under the Sun.
Here’s the video from Tuesday morning’s CBS World News appearance:
For the first time in three years, Save Jerseyans, the weather for October 31st looks normal at both ends of the Turnpike. No blizzards or superstorms on the horizon! And we’re certainly grateful for it.
Happiness over the promise of a normal Halloween certainly represents one point where we can all agree with Governor Christie who, as you might except, incurred some wrath at home for “cancelling” festivities last fall after Sandy struck:
