Christie wants GOP to “control voting mechanism.”

Chris Christie is a pretty scary, but what’s making Wally really paranoid is that Christie is telling us something we really need to hear.   But as usual, neither Democrats, progressives nor liberals are paying attention.  “While we’re busy counting senate seats,” Wally said, “the Republicans are trying to grab state governorships.”

The theory behind this GOP move to grab voting mechanisms in as many states as possible is to snatch away the voting rights of as many non-Republicans as possible.  And that is another thing Wally says is driving him crazy.  “Democrats are already strategizing for 2016 and they ain’t even done with 2014.”  Meanwhile, if Christie has his way, only white Republicans will still have the right to vote by then.

Seems as if the Democratic Party leadership has its head up its ass.  In 2008, they ignored state elections, according to Wally.  “And as a result we now have a gerrymandered congress that’s going to stay in Republican hands for decades.” 

At a recent Chamber of Commerce event in Washington, Christie asked a series of questions:  “Would you rather have Rick Scott in Florida overseeing the voting mechanism, or Charlie Christ?  Would you rather have Scott Walker in Wisconsin overseeing the voting mechanism, or would you rather have Mary Burke?  Who would you rather have in Ohio, John Kasich, or Ed FitzGerald?”

It’s all pretty obvious to Wally.  “When an Italian-American with a Jersey accent tells you that he’s coming to get you, you’d best listen-up and choose a weapon, fast,” he said.  “And in this case, an ounce of 2014 may just be worth a pound of 2016.  Or better yet, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
