New Jersey Governor Blames NHL For Lockout

from Melissa Hayes of The Record,

Governor Christie placed the blame for the continued cancellation of National Hockey League games on league leadership and said the lockout is taking a toll on the state’s largest city.

“When you can’t have a good relationship with your folks, your labor, three times in a row now to the point where you lose most of or entire seasons, it reflects I think on management,” he said. “I mean listen I worked it out with state workers they come to work every day.”

With the Prudential Center, where the New Jersey Devils play, in the heart of downtown Newark, Christie said he’s concerned about the impact no season at all would have on the region.

“A lot of restaurants and other attractions have built up around the Prudential Center,” Christie, a New York Rangers fan, said. “They’re very dependent upon the fans who come to watch the Devils, a lot of folks employed at the Prudential Center and these businesses. I’m concerned about it.”

why would someone ask a political hack about something other than politics?

in all fairness EP he’s talking about the economic impact of the lockout in his small state.  As lead executor of that state I think he’s qualified to give his opinion.  Of course he’s just a liberal union-loving piece of shit.  He was going to side with the union no matter what the “circumstance” was.  Lousy leadership? Suuuuuuure.  We’ll believe that the day we actually go over this “fiscal cliff” Cristie.  Idiot.
