The New Jersey Star Ledger has just admitted that they should have not endorsed the reelection of Chris Christie but did so, in part, because his opponent, State Senator Barbara Buono, was "not up to the job of being Governor". This gratuitous slap at Ms. Buono is merely another stupid justification for endorsing a man who was so clearly a corrupt bully.
I thought former State Senator Buono would have made an excellent governor. She clearly cares about the people and education and public employees and the environment -- you know, the important things. There has been no hint of corruption in her past, unlike Christie who has had ethics problems since his first election where he was sued for slander (and lost) and other ethics issues as well. And in that editorial, they still said that Christie should be considered as a Republican presidential nominee as compared to people like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
What they should be saying is this: "We owe Barbara Buono a huge apology. We should have endorsed her for Governor. Barbara Buono is honest while Chris Christie is corrupt - Barbara Buono cares for her constituents while Chris Christie cares about only about his own ambition. Finally, Chris Christie isn't fit to be Governor, let alone President."
