Quote of the Day - Chris Christie Edition

We watch a president who once talked about the courage of his convictions, but still has yet to find the courage to lead.

We watch a Congress at war with itself because they are unwilling to leave campaign style politics at the Capitol’s door. The result is a debt ceiling limitation debate that made our democracy appear as if we could no longer effectively govern ourselves.

And still we continue to wait and hope that our president will finally stop being a bystander in the Oval Office. We hope that he will shake off the paralysis that has made it impossible for him to take on the really big things that are obvious to all Americans and to a watching and anxious world community.

Yes, we hope. Because each and every time the president lets a moment to act pass him by, his failure is our failure too. The failure to stand up for the bipartisan debt solutions of the Simpson Bowles Commission, a report the president asked for himself…the failure to act on the country’s crushing unemployment…the failure to act on ever expanding and rapidly eroding entitlement programs…the failure to discern pork barrel spending from real infrastructure investment.
Chris Christie speaking at the Reagan Library. 

Transcript to entire speech here.I recommend it, it was a very good speech.

I find little I can disagree with. One thought that keeps bothering me is this... It seems each time he acts he chooses the wrong actions.

Often when he acts the markets falter. He seems to have no consistent rational view on how to lead or govern.

Often I find myself hoping he doesn't act. I mean, how much worse will he make it if he does?

While I am hopeful of his defeat in 2012, I also worry about the c aliber of any replacement. Foe certain Ron Paul nor Gary Johnson have a snowball in hell chance of winning the nomination.

Sad indeed is the sate of our current affairs.

I personally don't believe that Ron Paul would help things. I think the foreign policy issues that would arise with a Paul presidency would overwhelm whatever gains the country would make on fiscal policy.
