More on That “New Tone”


Senate President Stephen Sweeney went to bed furious Thursday night after reviewing the governor’s line-item veto of the state budget.

He woke up Friday morning even angrier.

“This is all about him being a bully and a punk,” he said in an interview Friday.

“I wanted to punch him in his head.”…

Now, in Sweeney’s defense he claims that the Governor didn’t give him what he thinks the Governor agreed to…but it does seem that Christie and the legislative Democrats were supposed to get together to work out a single budge, but the Democrats went and voted on their own, instead. So, Christie just “line-item vetoed” everything he didn’t like. As it turns out, Republican Christie didn’t like a whole raft of things Democrat Sweeney liked – so, there’s the hurt feelings.

But, still, imagine if it were Christie who said he wanted to punch Sweeney in the head? If that had been the case, it would have resulted in a national news frenzy as the whole of the liberal power structure went in to overdrive to force a humiliating apology from Christie. No such thing will happen here – it was a Democrat offering violence, and so that is ok.

In the end, no matter how much Sweeney was offended and no matter who violent he becomes, Christie did the right thing…we GOPers really have to learn that you can’t negotiate with Democrats. It really just doesn’t work – Democrats are only interested in paying off the special interests which bought them at election time, as well as ensuring their own wealth and power. Some GOPers are like that, too, but it is endemic to the Democrat party. It is better to just hammer them down – and if we have the power (and it appears that Christie does), then you just use it to maximum effect. In the long run, this is healthier for the nation because each chip away at the bloated, anti-democratic, un-American, liberal Big Government power structure is another step towards a restored America.
