We have a Trump thread, and various threads about all of his myriad of scandals. But we don’t have a general purpose “wtf GOP?” thread, and that’s what this is.
Bear in mind, until a few weeks ago, I was registered as a republican. I was not perhaps a “staunch” Republican, in that I didn’t vote blindly for the party, but since PA only lets you vote in primaries if you are registered with a party, I had picked the GOP, and been a member for my entire adult life.
And now I’m not, because they are off the rails.
Without further ado…
So Jersey has failed to pass a budget. This isn’t Christie’s fault, but this horrific act is.
He shut down all the state parks, including a bunch of beaches… On July 4th weekend. For those who don’t know, July 4th iS a big deal in Jersey, with a huge number of folks going there from PA. This will have significant negative economic impacts.
And again, that is not Christie’s fault alone. I think he’s actually obligated by their Constitution.
But he then took his family to the beach, that no one else is allowed to go to.
Pretty sure he’s trying to get a zero for his approval rating.
