New Jersey Governor and Teachers Union Chief Wage Public Battle –

TRENTON, N.J.—He says she’s a “greedy thug” who uses children as “drug mules.” She says he’s a “bully” and a “liar” who’s “obsessed with a vendetta.”

Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, and Barbara Keshishian, president of the state’s teachers union, say they want to improve public schools. That’s where agreement ends. In speeches, mailings and multi-million dollar TV ads, they’ve battled over teacher salaries, property taxes and federal education grants. They have met once, an encounter that ended when Mr. Christie threw Ms. Keshishian out of his office.


Every time this guy faces another challenge it always seems to be the “ultimate” challenge. At least according to the news reports I read. And if we were to ask these same reporters after he faces this one head on, and another “ultimate” challenge looms: What happened to the old one? Would they saw awwww… that was just a speed bump, and that this new challenge is the real “ultimate”?
Maybe I am just a bit confused. I need these reporters to dumb their material down some more so my poor addled brain can take it all in.
