Christie Fires Schundler

Via HotAir, it seems Christie has given a message that he doesn’t care what party you are if you lie

It didn’t take long for Chris Christie to react to a video of his education commissioner that contradicted his public assertion that New Jersey had supplied the correct numbers for the Race to the Top fund in Washington. Christie fired Bret Schundler after the video from the Race to the Top review showed that Schundler had not provided the numbers in question

I frankly never understood why Schundler was picked in the first place; from what I remember his only foray into education prior to this was being the poster boy for school vouchers.

Schundler’s short tenure was problematic before this, and a good part of that was due to him thinking rather highly of himself as this quote from today’s Asbury Park Press shows:

“I thought the governor and I made a very good team,” he said, adding that he felt he and Christie were on the verge of enacting monumental reforms. “Education commissioners aren’t interchangeable any more than governors are.”

HE is the Governor and YOU are there to enact HIS ideas and serve at HIS discretion.

    I wouldn’t know anything about New Jersey were it not for this blog.

    I’ve never heard of Schundler, but he seems to be a first class jerk. Not only does he think he’s god almighty as the quote above indicates, but now he brags that he insisted on being fired instead of resigning so that he could suck on the tit and get unemployment benefits.

    (No New Jersey in your life? perish the thought!) And you would be a poorer man for it, Skyler.

    The irony is that the biggest problem with New Jersey education is Christie himself. He keeps cutting school funding instead of making his wealthy donors pay their fair share in taxes. Christie is the most corrupt politician in NJ history, and that is quite an accomplishment.

    Thanks for the comedy relief, Lib!

  5. Wow, you get trolls here, Mr. Bingley!! Waaaay cool 😉

    Poor Bret still thinks he should have been governor. Well, he had his shot and got smoked like Christmas ham.

    And now he’s gone and cooked his own second chance. Oops.
