Reader: Chris Christie shouldn't criticize life in Colorado when his state of New Jersey is a toilet
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
During a recent visit to Colorado to stump for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez (and raise his national profile in advance of an expected bid for the 2016 presidential nomination), New Jersey Governor Chris Christie defended criticizing Colorado's quality of life following legalization of limited marijuana sales. Our post on the topic inspired plenty of vitriol from readers. Here's an example.
Johnny Zimmerman writes:
He wants to compare quality of life between Colorado, a beautiful mountain state where the air, and environment is actually somewhat clean. And that toilet he calls a state which has the most toxic waste dumps of any state in the US. There is no comparison and only a moron would think otherwise.
