Awesome. The result of which is something you don’t see every day; advice columnist Amy Alkon wishing for New Jersey!

From the Wall Street Journal article:

In his January 2011 inaugural address, California Gov. Jerry Brown declared it a “time to honestly assess our financial condition and make the tough choices.” Plainly the choices weren’t tough enough: Mr. Brown has just announced that he faces a state budget deficit of $16 billion—nearly twice the $9.2 billion he predicted in January. In Sacramento Monday, he coupled a new round of spending cuts with a call for some hefty new tax hikes.

In his own inaugural address back in January 2010, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also spoke of making tough choices for the people of his state. For his first full budget, Mr. Christie faced a deficit of $10.7 billion—one-third of projected revenues. Not only did Mr. Christie close that deficit without raising taxes, he is now plumping for a 10% across-the-board tax cut.

It’s not just looks that make Mr. Brown Laurel to Mr. Christie’s Hardy. It’s also their political choices.

Yet another Teachable Moment ™ for Democrats, but will they listen? Nah. It limits their power. What’s a little economic strife and destruction of states as long as those means justify their end?!/bladizzle/status/202473958107398145

    The Obama team of 2012 hates big healthy individuals. Now that’s the Mother load of discrimination if you ask me.

    Christy wins in this match up, Proof is in the pudding????

    Oh those liberals, so open minded and just want every one to live free!

    Hey Jerry, maybe you aught to start with E verify and work out from there. Wonder how a millionaires tax would work in Hollyweird, bet there would be a whole lot less fund raisers for “The One” because they would all be looking for residences in some red state.

    Did Mr. McGurn ever watch Laurel and Hardy shorts/movies? Stan Laurel’s character was supposed to be dumber but always came out on top. Other than that, good analysis.

    It’s not rocket science, liberalism is an ideological parasitic tick. It consumes the life from the host until both, the parasite and the host, cease to exist.

    They believe the best road to economic prosperity is to steal and raise regulations. To engorge itself off the life force of those who’ve actually earned their ability to be a self sustaining sentient being.

    Not a creature that depends on others to exist. Liberalism is nothing more then a piggyback ride on the backs of others. Without the host, the parasite simply dies.

    So simply put, liberals offer nothing in return for your sacrifice and hard work but destructive principles and a deminished quality of life.

    Never take a liberal at their word, their agenda is to promote themselves, not you.

    California is the perfect model to illustrate the destructive consequences of liberal governance. It’s broke and getting broker by the day.

    California you simply suck, and don’t expect other states to come to your aide, it’s not going to happen. Sleep in the bed your liberal deficient rule has created.
