The Reasonable One

Some Democrats think Chris Christie is a reasonable guy. And, by golly, he just signed a law banning gay conversion therapy in New Jersey. So, maybe he is. On the other hand, he's always been a teachers' union basher; and he just vetoed a law, passed by the state legislature, banning civilian sales of .50 caliber weapons. That's .50 caliber ammo on the right. It's shot from rifles like this. Reasonable? By what measure, in what world?

I suppose the guy deserves a modicum of sympathy, having presidential ambitions in a party that's lost its mind; in which some people hate him for partnering with the President of the United States of America to address the damage of Hurricane Sandy. How do you appeal to those sorts while still having a chance at enough votes from sane people to be elected nationally? He seems to have trouble walking the line (insert trouble walking joke here). To his credit, at least he may actually want to try; whereas the bulk of pretenders from his side are fine with spreading hardcore Santorum.
