mx5guynj saidYou guys are uninformed. Christie has this issue rigged (like many others including healthcare reform) so that he works both sides of the issue.
Christie already appointed the first gay judge to the NJ Supreme Court so Christie will appeal the decision to a court that will support gay marriage. Conservatives will like that he fought it, Gays will have marriage.
Some of you may have heard of Liberal Race Baiting to stir race controversy in a situation where none exists, this subject is an example of Liberal Homophobe Baiting.
What does appointing a gay judge have to do with believing gays have the right to marry? Two different issues.
I should also add that it's ironic that Christie blasted the Supreme Court's decision that shot down the DOMA, because according to Christie it was an "example of judicial supremacy, rather than having the government run by the people we actually vote for.
Yet when the government run by the people New Jersey residents voted for passed a measure to allow same-sex marriage in New Jersey, Christie vetoed the bill.
If Christie secretly wants gays to marry, this is a poorly planned ploy. Why bother? As governor of a blue state where most approve of marriage equality, and in a time in our nation where most Americans are okay with same-sex marriage, pandering to the far right is pointless. He even has likability among some Democrats.
I could understand if this was the 90s, but not in 2013. Especially for the reasons above.
