According to Talking Points Memo

“I have complete faith and confidence in Scott,” Christie said, according to The Bergen Record, adding: “I believe he has great integrity.”

Christie made the comments in New Hampshire, where he attended a campaign event and endorsed Walt Havenstein in the state's Republican gubernatorial primary. According to the Record, Christie said he spoke with Walker on Friday, and plans to campaign with him this year.

I have no reason to explain why, but the lyrics to an old Bob Dylan song, made even more famous by Jimi Hendrix immediately came to mind. All Along the Watchtower, but the words were different!

There must be some kind of way outta here
Said Chris Christie to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief

Business men, they pay my bills
Low wage workers dig my earth
None were level on the mind
Nobody up at his word
Hey, hey

No reason to get excited
Scott Walker kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that courts are but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin' jail terms now
The hour's getting late, hey

All along the watchtower
The staffers kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot teachers, too
Outside in the cold distance
A DA started to growl
Attorneys were approaching
And the two began to howl!!!

It's late here in Malaysia. Have a good day everyone!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
