11. It has come my attention that I've contributed to the deliquency of Christie's kids

NJ.com: ...Appearing on his monthly call-in radio program "Ask the Governor" on NJ 101.5 FM, Christie said the blowback hurt his kids more than anything else that's happened in his time as governor.

"They were more hurt by this latest episode than they've been hurt by anything else that has happened in the eight years and they don't understand people's unfairness and, quite frankly, their ignorance."

...After NJ Advance Media published pictures of Christie and his family alone on 10 miles of Island Beach State Park shore, the internet erupted with photo-shopped pictures of the governor and his folding chair in a variety of ever more improbable scenarios...

Well, seeing as how I was a full-fledged contributor to that unfairness both as meme maker and a promoter of the story at DU and elsewhere, I will step forward and take accountability. And I do have a reasonable explanation: Since I couldn't afford to spend Independence Day weekend on even a state beach, I didn't have anything BETTER to do!




Philly.com: ...Christie took his family and a group of his childrenís friends to the governorís beach house at Island Beach State Park...even though the park had been closed as part of the government shutdown that resulted from the Legislatureís failure to adopt a budget by July 1...Christie has said the trip had been planned for months.

NJ.com: ...Christie disclosed he has avoided looking at the memes of the infamous beach snaps and said his kids haven't discussed them with him..."They came to me and said, 'It's our fault, we should have just told you that we would have just told all of our friends to go away.' And I said to them, no, this was my decision. You're not the adult. I am."

Only one Christie's four "children" will still be a minor as of next year. Maybe the real reason why they were so upset is that they were old enough to realize how "unfair" and "ignorant" it was for them be on a beach that no one should have been on because there were no state workers available. Or maybe they were perceptive enough to realize how bad it would make THEM look, and were willing to cancel or postpone: the "fair" and "adult" thing to do. Are Christie's children finally beginning to see their father for who he really is?
