Chris Christie Backed Jerry Jones Firm in Successful Attempt To Oversee World Trade Center Observation Deck And No One Should Give A Shit
The Big Lead- Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, “personally pushed” for a firm partly owned by Jerry Jones to receive a government contract in New York City prior to accepting free travel and tickets to multiple Cowboys games, according to a report from the International Business Times. The deal involved hospitality services at the World Trade Center.
Oh Jesus, here we go. We get a few screen grabs of Chris Christie dressed like the Syracuse Orange and rubbing dicks with Jerry Jones and all the sudden we have to question his entire resume. Show me a politician who doesn't have some digable dirt, and I'll show you a laundry list of his failures. Personally, I am pretty neutral on Chris Christie. However, whether you loathe him or love him directly correlates to how you feel about this issue. If you hate him, you surely think his presence at an out of state football game compromises his ability to run the state of New Jersey. If you like him, you probably feel as though it's a non-issue. And you know what? For once, the staunch Republicans are right about something. Chris Christie taking a Sunday night or two away from the job to watch football and enjoy the luxuries that come with being a powerful political figure is the worst possible reason to criticize him. In fact, it's downright un-American to chastise him for such a thing.
So you're telling me that two years ago a popular politician backed the company of a prestigious business mogul? Well, you don't say. Almost unfathomable that a business man and politician could be in cahoots together. For fuck's sake, throw in a lawyer and you've covered just about every unfunny "walk into a bar…" joke on the planet. Tell me something I don't know. Rich and powerful men tend to gravitate towards other rich and powerful men. Is it corrupt that Chris Christie pushed for a firm that Jerry Jones was involved with to win the job? Maybe. Does his presence at numerous Cowboy's games this year have anything to do with a contract signed nearly TWO FULL YEARS ago? Fuck and no. We can stop making it seem like Chris Christie traded the safety of the World Trade Center observation deck outright for a chartered flight and a couple of box seats.
If this is corruption then half of our workforce is corrupt. This is corruption in the same way that getting the upper hand on a job through a friend or acquantaince is corruption. If this is corruption then so is Kevin Love getting traded to the Cavaliers, or Eli Manning forcing a draft day trade to the Giants. As they say, it's not about what you know, but who you know. Is it feasible that maybe, just maybe, Jerry Jones is involved with legitimate business entities? If there is one thing I know about Jerry Jones it's that he loves his underaged strippers. If there is two things I know about Jerry Jones it's that he knows a good business venture when he sees one. It's not like Chris Christie backed the hiring of Romo and the gang to watch over the observation deck.
Is it relatively annoying that Brady Hoke's long lost twin brother is a Cowboys fan? A little bit. It's not entirely surprising though. Everyone that was born in the 80's grew up with at least a couple people that are Cowboys fans for no other reason then they were winning when they were young. It's quite possible they have the biggest bandwagon in sports history. Why would a politician, who's job forces him to have questionable moral character, be above being a bandwagon fan? He's probably a Notre Dame fan and a Bulls fan too. Regardless, Chris Christie taking a day trip to Dallas is in no way a sign of him letting his fan-hood take precedence over his responsibilities as Governor, and its certainly not something that is worthy of any background check. The only ethics violation he is guilty of is being a shitty sports fan.
