Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey, has turned out to be a genuine surprise lately. More and more people are listening to what he has to say about the problems that NJ is facing...which are many of the very same problems that the entire country is just now beginning to face...very large government payrolls, that have overly generous retirement benefits. The same thing is facing county and municipality governments as well. Here's some interesting video via Instapundit of a speech he gave earlier this week. Take a look at how closely people are paying attention to what he has to say. Also look look at the composition of his audience. The "diversity" will be surprising....especially considering that he is a Republican.
