With a projected surplus and 60,000 private sector jobs, Christie has evidence to point to proving his accomplishments. Corzine had zip.

Stop drinking the cool aid. Where has my taxes gone down. Property taxes up 800 bucks do to a lack of municipal aid and school aid and our town cut drasctically. WE have the highest unemployment rate in the area at at least 9 percent. I will say i'll give christie the edge over corzine, but he's far from the messiah he plays a smoke and mirrors game like whitman did. Instead of traveling the country i'd like to see a governor THAT CUTS my property taxes. By him not sending money to the towns this does not help and that stupid 10% income tax cut gimmick, so he could say i cut taxes. His ink is still wet from signing the PA toll increases and sending the busload of over 50 people up there for little or no show jobs that pay about 100K and up a year.Throw in that we now own the distinction of the state with the 2nd highest amount of foreclosures and you should be thrilled about how great the current governor is doing.

Whoever (correction whatever, I wanted to include animals and inanimate objects) is NOT Corzine is who is better. Personally, I kinda like Christie, but think he could go about certain things better. To be honest, the real problem so far has been the heads of the teacher's union screwing the state. So far, Christie hasn't really disappointed me yet, I'm curious to see who the democrats will run, but probably won't vote for a dem since the democrats of this state seem to be incredibly corrupt.

Christie has cut taxes, cut spending, reformed pensions, and increased choice in education. New Jersey has gone from Corzine deficits to a projected Christie surplus. 60,000 private sector jobs have been added. It's not even a close call, Christie is a reformer and Corzine a criminal, a moron, and out of touch.

I believe you need to go back and review Christine Todd Whitmans record before making this type of statement. We're now feeling the effects of the shell game played by the former Governor. As far as a surplus, thats like having $5K in your checking account knowing full well you need to send a check to your creditors for $50K. How much is NJ behind on their pension payment?

Wait, Obama gets 4 full years to blame the previous president for the state of our nation and the governor gets none????

Personally, I like Christie. He's the only one that has had the guts to tell the truth about how dire our situation as a state is and what pains it will take to improve it.

I agree with you, Whitman, McGreevey and Corzine were total disasters when it came governing and changing the way NJ does business.

Such a shame given all of the financial resources NJ's political apparatus has to play with.

no actually McGreevy was kind of effective. If not for the stupidity of hiring his lover, we wouldn't have had to deal with Corzine.

I think people underestimate the damage that Corzine did to NJ. Christie has a big mouth and he's entertaining to watch. While most Jersey people probably are embarrassed by him, think again. People from other states LOVE this guy. He's practically a youtube sensation. Especially after 3 years of having an ineffective, flip flopping, union postering spending machine in the executive -- Christie is a breath of fresh air. Not going to say I agree with everything he's done, but he's got some balls (albeit, fat balls.) Perhaps Romney will pick Christie as his VP?

However ask any democrat from NJ and they'll give you a mouthful of criticisms for Christie -- but that's because NJ democrats are extremely partisan and will do anything to poop all over any republican.
