Chris Christie Weaponized A Holiday Government Shutdown (Closed Beaches On July Of Fourth)

Isn't the following a beautiful and soothingly relaxed image of an idyllic beach? 

Apparently, Christie couldn't reach an agreement with Democrats in the New Jersey State Legislature, so what does he do. He does what any impetuous self-centered jack-ass would do, he looked to enact punishment  via depriving state denizens vacationers and visitors from other states of a "Star & Stripes" weekend beach happening. He shutdown the state government (that all familiar governing weapon of the GOP). Allow me to state more clearly, Christie via the shutdown effectively closed beaches for the July Fourth weekend. 

All state beaches are not closed.

Seaside Park Beach, north of Island Beach State Park
A governor with 15% approval rating occupied a private beach near his beach home. He was insulated from the masses via the privilege of his private beach, but the optics are without question historic.

Private Beach, public Beach, any beach.


Oh, those pesky helicopters.

Of course, Christie has perspective on the matter which will satisfy no one.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, Republican candidate to run for Christie's gubernatorial seat issued a statement regarding Christie's day at the beach. 

"......beyond words.”

Earlier today Guadagno spoke very clearly: “If I were governor, I sure wouldn’t be sitting on the beach if taxpayers didn’t have access to state beaches,” 

Imagine people like Chris Christie and Donald Trump. Bad question actually; if the two were not duly elected officials in the United States, I could not imagine them.
