    I grew up in NJ but live in CT and haven't looked back.

    The idiots in NJ voted for that fucktard, many of them are my friends.  Now that fucktard has screwed NJ commuters.  Well to them I suggest do what I did.  MOVE THE FUCK OUT.  We'll gladly take them in CT.

      in NJ apparently voted for that guv, perhaps you're right that they deserve what they now won't get. Not exactly compassionate sentiment to express, but you must be correct if "the idiots" add up to 100% of the voters.

      However, in my state, only a bit more than half voted for teh stoopid.

      •  Well, to be vaguely fair (0+ / 0-)

        to Gov. Christie (disgusting asshole as he is), there was at least some vague fiscal "rationale" behind his axing the Hudson Tunnel Project: the cost overruns issue (which NJ would, I think, have been on the hook for - and which, naturally, would have run into the billions on a project of that scale). Mind you, I still disagree: but at there was some sort of logic behind Christie's decision.

        Walker (and Kasich), though? These cases seems to make little sense - except as pure cheapjack political pique. Pique fired up, it seems by:

        1. Whatever weird irrational animus Republicans seem to have against virtually ANY public backing for anything running on rails.
        1. An apparently equally irrational reflex to simply oppose or deny anything proposed by the Obama Administration.
        1. A cynical attempt to try to grab the funding for their own infrastructure projects - probably road-related - simply so they can get their own names up on those roadside signs. Fortunately, the Administration has said "No" - for now - but I'd be willing to wager that at some point in the 112th Congress, there's going to be a big push to shift infrastructure funding towards GOP pet-projects (probably in the name of "States' Rights"). And rail boosters, I fear, are going to be abandoned on a rusty siding - again.

          are doing is the epitome of teh stoopid.

          Rationale has nothing to do with it; greed and obstructionism are their sole goals. It's beyond disgusting and the height of fiscal irresponsibility.

          I have nothing kind to say about their actions and that is an understatement.
