There is a time and a place for everything. Even being an a-hole.
The press refer to Chris Christie as being "tough-talking," "straight-talking" or simply "blunt." Now you've seen the guy on TV, and you no doubt have read about some of his encounters with ordinary citizens of the Garden State who might be less than enthusiastic about his tenure as governor.
You know what the guy is, is what I'm trying to say here.
But, as the Good Book says, there is a time and place for all things, and if it's in the Good Book, it must be so:
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven;HURRICANE SANDY, my friend, is Chris Christie's time in Noo Joisey:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Governor Christie said during a 12 p.m. briefing Monday that conditions will worsen as Sandy makes landfall and anyone who stayed along the coast to ride out the storm is “now in harm’s way.”LISTEN to the a-hole. If it looks stupid, it is stupid.
“I read some joker in the newspaper…saying he’s never run away from one of these [storms]. Well, you might end up under it…this is not a time to be stupid,” said Christie.
The governor urged residents to stay off the roads, use caution and heed warnings.
He also had a warning regarding power outages.
“If you do not have power, please do not choose today to tap into your creative juices and jerry-rig a [power source],” said Christie. “If it looks stupid, it is stupid.”
Stay safe out there on the Joisey shore. Hurricanes ain't nothing to mess with.
