    who could get things done with Democrats ........ I guess it depends on the definition of "with"

    •  The correct gloss is "to" (0+ / 0-)

      This is in line with the Grover Norquist definition of bipartisanship as "date rape".

      The background of this story is that Christie threatened and offered political favors to Democrats all around the state to endorse him for Governor, and few other than the Mayor of Fort Lee openly stood up to his bullying.

      Political corruption in New Jersey goes back to the original royal charter from Charles II at the time of the Restoration. He hid out from Cromwell on the island of Jersey, and the Duke of York was one of the recipients. Hence New York and New Jersey.
