No Joy In Christiedom: New Jersey Downgraded
In the increasingly desperate search for a Republican governor who could save the Right from Romney and the center from Perry, Chris Christie’s stock just took a dive. New Jersey’s GO bonds were downgraded by Fitch to AA-.
Not that this is necessarily Christie’s fault, any more than Texas’s jobs are Perry’s achievement. But the fact is that if the Republicans want to paint Obama as “President Downgrade,” they cannot have “Governor Downgrade” on the ticket against him.
