by Richard Muti

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
"A Tale of Two Christies" is a collection of essays about Gov. Chris Christie and New Jersey politics, the national political scene, unnecessary wars and wrongheaded government, rare displays of political courage, not-so-rare displays of political cowardice, public employee unions, and other public policy issues that challenge state and federal government. No politician, regardless of political party, or government policy is safe from the author's scrutiny, but those mired in the usual hypocrisy of the public arena are particular targets: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party get special attention, but so do liberals beholden to special interest groups on the Left.
Description
"A Tale of Two Christies" is a collection of essays about Gov. Chris Christie and New Jersey politics, the national political scene, unnecessary wars and wrongheaded government, rare displays of political courage, not-so-rare displays of political cowardice, public employee unions, and other public policy issues that challenge state and federal government. No politician, regardless of political party, or government policy is safe from the author's scrutiny, but those mired in the usual hypocrisy of the public arena are particular targets: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party get special attention, but so do liberals beholden to special interest groups on the Left. Gov. Christie, whom the author has dubbed "The New Colossus of Trenton," not for his physical size but for the way he has dominated national as well as Jersey politics, has a whole section devoted to him and his in-your-face style of government. As this book is published, Christie enjoys a 72% approval rating among voters, the highest level attained by any governor in the state's history. Yet, the man still evokes passionate feelings from supporters and foes, alike. In the end, the author comes down on the side of a "yes" vote for Christie, but only after pointing out the serious flaws the governor has exhibited in his Cinderella-like rise to national prominence.
