Things started with former Gov. Chris Christie sharing an opinion piece on Twitter Monday that criticized Gov. Phil Murphy. And then it spiraled from there.

By the late afternoon, the current Democratic governor and the former Republican governor were mixing it up in a pretty feisty Twitter fight.

Christie shared an editorial from The Press of Atlantic City, written less than a week after Murphy unveiled his latest budget, that took the governor to task for wanting to raise taxes on people who earn more than $1 million a year and on cigarettes.Murphy then swung back.“We’re still digging out of the …

    Anyone who paid into the state pension fund thinking they could rely on it in their retirement knows Big Boy should shut his fat mouth and retire to that beach.

    I believe in free speech however insults and ignorant comments get you zero credibility. But hey, if you want to look silly, you can say anything you want. The reality is that insults are all you have when confronted with facts. You use them because you either unable to debate in the arena of ideas or cannot handle a rational debate in the arena of ideas or facts for that matter. You then respond with anger and personal attacks. Rousseau had a quote that fits folks like you > “Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.” This may fit you as well. “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” Have a nice day now.


    What Art said…

    @He certainly…

    Christie addressed the pension mess that the previous 4 governors (including Codey) created. He paid more into the pension system than those four governors combined.

    Art, did he pay what HE promised he would put into it? If I remember correctly, he called the Legislature’s Chief Budget Officer the “Kevorkian” of numbers. How did that work out?
