    What a gutless coward Chris Christie turned out to be.

    He inherited a financial mess decades in the making, and came into office claiming to be a truth telling outsider, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt when he made some decisions I didn’t fully agree with.

    It is now clear, however, that he is just another self-serving careerist unable to face the hard truths and force his constituents to do so. He even failed to hold up his side of his own pension deal. His gutlessness is unbelievable.

    Is this what we can expect from Generation Apathy, when Generation Greed’s music stops and there are no more chairs? If so skip my generation too, and look for leadership from those in their 30s and younger. They may not have the knowledge yet but, sorry, your elders can’t be relied on.
