Vetting Christie Continued
Friday’s Wall Street Journal has an article “As Christie Clamor Grows, His Positions Face Scrutiny.” We will find out items such as the following:
He favors an array of gun-control
measures–including a ban on assault weapons–that are opposed by the National Rifle Association.
He appointed a superior court judge who is Muslim and defended nine eleven Muslims. In response to his critics, Christie said: “It’s just crazy, and I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.”
As US Attorney, he prosecuted few immigration cases. Once before a Latino group he declared “being in this country without proper documentation is not a crime.”
Although criticizing Obamacare, he did not join most Republican governors suing to overturn the law.
He came late to a pro-life position and still won’t back a bill on parental notification.
There will undoubtedly be other shoes to drop if vetting becomes necessary.
