You won't believe why N.H.'s top paper endorsed Christie | Moran

ha ha, the leader supported Christie and someone from the Newark Star Ledger calls them and asks why?
You won't believe why N.H.'s top paper endorsed Christie | Moran

Seems like all they know is his speeches in NH, not his history s governor - when will they learn to actually look at someone's record?

Know two things about this endorsement from the Manchester Union-Leader.

One is that it could put Christie on the map. This paper's endorsements result in an 11 point bump for the winner, on average. If history holds, that means Christie is now a contender in New Hampshire.

The second is this: The paper knows almost nothing about his record as governor.

they think he was cleared of Bridgegate, not realizing he hand picked the people to investigate him and they produced a report saying he was not to blame (and charged over a million to do it) and then destroyed all their notes!!! Most people say not cleared and the feds are still investigating it.
They thought he handled Sandy well - once again, that is what he says, not the people , like me, okay, worse off than me, that got no help. He did get a lot of free advertising in an election year claiming we won over the storm, even though a lot of things not back yet. I will say LAST WEEK, I finally got the state investigator to get a refund of a small part of the land rent I paid through the summer of the next year from the owner.
Pension reform,. no idea how he made a bad situation worse by giving it to his friend to manage and suddenly the returns are worse than average and the fess are higher.
They are judging Christie purely on his rhetoric.

I could go on.....

only a top newspaper in the extreme RW sector... the ones who can actually read, that is. It's greatest function, besides flamebait, is littler box lining.

Repubs do not like to do homework, do not like facts, and clearly do not check with colleagues. Why would I think otherwise? given the lies lately? given the lies for the last 20 years?
