VIDEO: Christie Stumps for Walker in Wisconsin; Mocks Obama’s Marxist “Forward” Slogan

No one knows (or cares) what Barbara Buono was up to yesterday, Save Jerseyans.

I don’t think Mr. Obama’s little bit of theater in Kabul was much more interesting.

Political pundits were too busy watching Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) and Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) stand side-by-side inside of a Wisconsin landscaping company’s modest maintenance shop. Christie himself noted that at least “[f]or the next five weeks, Wisconsin is going to be the center of the American political universe.” He didn’t find much disagreement; there’s a lot riding on its outcome. That’s why over 200 excited supporters gathered to hear Christie lend his emphatic, renewed support to their state’s embattled governor. They know Walker faces a tough recall election next month and, at the moment, how the “likely” result remains uncertain.

As you might imagine, Governor Christie wasted no time zeroing right in on the connection between his own battles with “Big Labor” in New Jersey and Governor Walker’s current struggles in Wisconsin (h/t JSOnline):


The key line which brought the house down: “See, what I’ve been able to do is give Scott and the people of Wisconsin a little preview of what good conservative governance can do for a state that’s wrecked by liberal governance for too long.”

Preach it, Brother Christie!

Our Governor also alluded to the President’s new marxist “Forward” slogan, reminding the crowd how “Wisconsin is moving forward because you elected a strong leader.” Christie has certainly never shied away from criticizing President Obama’s leadership (or lack thereof) as a general matter. In fact, I’m not sure he’s ever shied away from saying anything…

    How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?

    How can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?

    How can I go forward into something I'm not sure of?

    Oh no, oh no

    Hey Wisconsin you don't want what Christie is doing to New Jersey, Christie has repeated lied to the people, raised tolls, property taxes have gone up , and so has job losses.
