Mike Kelly considers Chris Christie’s State of the State quite revealing–not about New Jersey, but about Christie. A snippet:
Some people return, carrying old burdens and wounded memories. Others return to revel in some measure of glory.
Still others return with a re-invented narrative – a view of their past that is not even remotely grounded in reality and, of course, a view of their future that seems equally misguided.
This is Chris Christie.

Alfred Doblin points out that, in fact, it is.
THE MEN and women seeking the Republican nomination for president should shut up and study history. Governor Christie, speaking before the Republican Jewish Coalition last week, said, “For the first time since 9/11 we’re going to have to confront the loss of American life on American soil to terrorist conduct.”
I guess Adam Lanza, who shot 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in 2012, was just a man with a weapon. Slaughtering 26 people — 20 were children — was not an act of terrorism because, according to GOP presidential wannabes, a crazed man with a gun killing more than a half-dozen people in a school is not a terrorist. Or James Holmes killing 12 and injuring 70 additional people inside a movie theater in 2012 is not a terrorist.

Jack Ohman spots a pattern:
A few days ago, when caught in yet another lie, this fiberglass-headed buffoon (not nice) did what he always does in these situations.
1. He lies again.
2. He questions the motives of the people who caught him in the lie.
3. He repeats the lie; then he goes up two points in the polls.

Sure, tax cuts generate economic activity (as does spending), but never enough to make up for the lost revenue needed to pay for all the government that even so-called small-government types say they need.
