@GottaLaff Media is non stop with Christie prepping him for 2012, good letter show media how many New Jerseyans really feel about Christie

Here are excerpts from that must-read letter to the editor at NJ.com:
We have fought and died in the civil rights movement, we have fought for unions and a living wage, we have fought for the rights of women and choice, and we have fought for equal opportunity regardless of gender, sexual orientation, color and religion.

Real estate taxes are up, unemployment is among the worst in the nation and federal funds for Superstorm Sandy relief have thus far benefited mainly business (as homeowners twist slowly in the wind). This is a giant administrative mess.

- VIDEO: “Christie is as bad as the rest of these radical governors. Chris Christie is a disciple of GW Bush.”
- Chris Christie's guy: "I have no interest in paying for your health care. I'd hate to see you get cancer but that's your problem, not mine."
This is the person who New Jerseyans should have elected to be their governor:
