Does that itself -- directly answer a simple question -- -- -- about them.
What you are you going to do but never this Republican Jersey governor Chris Christie never came across a question he tried to -- off your.
Then they see you -- out some union did or they see you.
You know jumping ugly on a reporter.
Don't try that -- -- -- Let it they say hey is that the same guy.
I guess I get angry sometimes like everybody does really we have but I'm passionate about what I believe -- And I also think that the public needs to start being treated like adults and it created a bit of a firestorm governor.
They say you're being -- a lot of these.
Public worker -- what do you say now I know that there are some public workers weren't happy about it they would like to all the minutes you may not like this today.
But ten years from now when you have a pension to collect and health benefits to collect you're going to be looking for my actress to send me -- thank you -- Yeah.
All right so you may not like it or -- -- but proceed directly answering questions bluntly sometimes -- -- it brutally yet his poll numbers are up substantially.
Got -- to 60% approval rating in this democratic every state compared to 46 -- percent approval for congress.
The always -- Danny Bonaduce says other politicians to take a lesson.
And we can hear that.
94 point one WYST.
In Philadelphia the -- you know on.
For some reason politicians don't do what they revert back to being sort of been no.
Well there wasn't fun -- -- you get for having me on the show by the way was a there was a time when honesty was the best policy the reason that Governor Christie is getting such attention.
Is we have become -- we -- -- -- time -- honesty is now a novelty.
I would not be here tonight speaking with you with the great privilege that I have that it is.
If Governor Christie was doing nothing new and different.
But what he's doing is speaking his mind.
A lost art to most politicians what they do now and it it it's a new art form and spectacular.
Is they speak four minutes even hours at a time.
And I sat -- in front of my television set I felt that man is absolutely right and the victim of the -- and I think permanently.
Have to be just exactly exactly and and I are thankful -- were afraid to.
Come out of says -- for fear it's going to hurt them.
But when someone comes along says look there's this gravy boat has run -- -- -- and then we got to do something about it.
You know everyone invariably says -- but not migrated vote but now it seems like people have changed enough to say well I'm -- do you.
Deal and in my gravy boat as as the governor has done a New Jersey where.
Even union households are saying.
Yeah we we realize what you're doing is necessary not -- to be sure but enough of obviously that it is democratic heavy state he's winning their support.
He's winning their support and I believe by the way rightly -- the Christie fan but I believe he's winning this support.
And the reason you're seeing other politicians follow suit is because you're watching his numbers go up.
By doing something novel and that is telling the people that voted for his constituents constituents exactly what's on his mind.
Nobody has ever said let's take these unions these teachers and a -- don't deliver let's fire that.
Nobody says that remark what they say is there's a union that has its own interest at heart and I think they should be taken -- -- at fifteen minutes go by and you realize they've said nothing what Christie is does as if you don't reform will fire you -- What that everything he does it would -- -- this fascinating he's discussing firing teachers what is great quotes liberally from today could have been yesterday -- Ten year is let's go away illnesses that co op codes are veins.
And well first well that's not even medically sound about going back.
A guy like that usually -- -- I ordered it.
And I don't mean to be routed -- I like I cinema Christie fan but I would think -- burgers and Fries -- this guy's basically taking an in house stuff back on the matter is.
I just being honest you know that is our topic tonight is you know yes -- right I would I noticed attack the person is saying that but that's fine go ahead.
But I I haven't always been thin I heard you mention that earlier this evening is a matter of fact I hired a perfect drop personal trainer that takes -- Vast portion of my income and I -- out on other things because I don't wish to be -- -- but not enough about the that this kind of came out of left field the fact is the that Governor Christie is telling the American people what he believes or at least he's convinced me he believes at -- the fact is.
The rest of his party and then the rest of the opposing party will follow the numbers they will always it's just like these questions follow the money.
Followed you approval rating and 67%.
High when you think about it because we're talking I was watching your show I always -- -- show.
We've done well taxes federal state local.
In some parts of New York they're going to be 67.
No nobody wants that.
But only Christie is coming out and seeing what is exactly -- -- -- -- -- that's right don't want to act and the word why here nobody says that.
Okay now on the president and now downside -- say -- now and it's surprising.
It's refreshing and it's admirable.
All right Janet -- on the way to Danny Bonaduce -- thank you my friend great job as always thank you as always.
