Governor Christie has a new role as chairman of the Republican Governor's Association. WNYC reporter Matt Katz discusses how that helps with a possible run for president.
Why aren't we discussing the soaring stock market? No complaints or disapproval there, that's why.
Nice way to slip a cheap shot in about Christie seconds before the break, Brian. If your going to refer to an incident you should have the journalistic integrity to explain the whole story or play the clip in total.Christie or any other Republicans/ Democrats/ Independents running for president in 2016 is just speculation at this point. There will be a many things happen in the next two years to affect a persons popularity. To speculate now is as reliable as making predictions about the new year.
Why aren't we discussing Barry Obama's 37% "approval" number (LOL) in the new CBS poll?
Less about the political jockeying at this conclave and more about lobbyists and other special interests, particularly groups like ALEC, please.
Republican governors :
1) Lag behind states run by DEMOCRATIC governors in employment since the Great Recession
2) Dishonor the privacy of women through invasive procedures before a legal medical procedure can be performed. 3) Do not believe in majority rule. They believe in the golden rule. He who has the gold, makes the rules.
4) Favor anti-democratic 'ID' rules that fall heavily on the poor and minorities.
