Darkness on the Edge of Town

Paul Krugman in tomorrow's NYT column tackles (ouch) the GOP's other very big star this week, Gov. Chris Christie, dispelling several myths--and likening him to Paul Ryan.  "Both have carefully cultivated public images as tough, fiscally responsible guys willing to make hard choices. And both public images are completely false."  And:  "Mr. Christie has told reporters that he won’t use the term 'Jersey comeback' in his keynote address. And it’s not hard to see why: the comeback, such as it was, has hit the skids. Indeed, the latest figures show his state with the fourth-highest unemployment rate in the nation."
