What is Chris Christie doing here?

New Jersey governor (R) Chris Christie is set to make another visit to our state.  His purpose is to raise money for gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley.  He'll meet with residents of Greenwich which is already heavily republican.

Aside from being a fellow republican to Foley, as everyone knows there's been an ongoing feud between Christie and Governor Malloy.  They are constantly sniping at each other.

My problem here is not necessarily that Christie is coming to the state.  Fellow elected officials always visit other states to support colleagues in their party.  President Obama is even coming here to raise money for Malloy.  Interestingly, Malloy is not going to be there.  He is basically dissing the president.  Politics is politics.  It always has been and always will be.

So what's my problem, you ask?  Basically it's that Christie is such an obnoxious blowhard that he's just too much to take.  It's bad enough we have to hear from him on national news where he's constantly being asked if he's going to run for president(of course he is!).   But now he has to come here, right in our faces, by way of a New Jersey state police helicopter of all things.

Stay home,  Christie. You're a jerk and we can take care of ourselves in Connecticut.  I would add and shut up while you're at it but I know better.

Thus endth my rant for the day.
