Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES You know, Saturday night’s debate was just the last piece of evidence in a pretty long string that Chris Christie is a fundamentally dishonest person.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In the past we’ve seen large, well-connected businesses run into trouble, and then run to government to keep afloat and unafraid of competition.
