NJ Gov Gone Wild gets award for ruining state

New Jersey Gov. Gone Wild Chris Christie will receive the Pete du Pont Freedom Award at a dinner in Delaware in September. In a statement announcing the award, du Pont, a former Republican governor of Delaware, said:

Those of us in Delaware who value individual freedom enabled by smaller and less intrusive government have watched with almost hometown pride as Chris Christie had led New Jersey away from a government that was out of control.

Hometown pride? The people who actually call New Jersey their hometown don’t have much pride for Christie.

Memo to Govs Gone Wild: Stop cutting

Guess what's a big drag on our economy right now? The loss of state and local jobs.

All our Governors Gone Wild have got their economics exactly backasswards. That goes for Scott Walker in Wisconsin, Chris Christie in New Jersey, John Kasich in Ohio, Rick Snyder in Michigan, Rick Scott in Florida, Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Paul LePage in Maine.

Here's a chart that makes the point:
