Chris Christie’s campaign offers the following video, pointing out that Joe Biden, Caroline Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama will all come to New Jersey this week, touting the incumbent governor . . . and then leave, because they prefer to live somewhere where they don’t have to deal with a state government as unresponsive and ineffective as the one run by Jon Corzine.
But the thing is, New Jerseyans are leaving the state in droves, too.
It’s an ingenious strategy, to mismanage a state so egregiously that you drive out the folks who would be most inclined to vote against you. This election might be the last chance to stop the exodus and make the Garden State an affordable and safe place to live again.
