Love him or loathe him, you have to give Governor Christie credit for one thing, and that's his ability to keep his promises. We saw that this past week with his (as promised) veto of the gay marriage bill in New Jersey. Sure, it passed the Senate, and yes, it managed to garner enough votes to clear the Assembly; but even as those votes we're being counted, and before the echo of the cheering supporters who were at the State House had completely faded away, the Governor was waiting with with his inked-up rubber stamp, ready to slam the word VETO across any document that would have legalized same-sex marriage. Maybe as he listened to the bill's supporters cheering its passing in the Assembly, and perhaps as he watched as they celebrated with loud cheering, hugging, and by shedding tears of joy, he twirled the rubber stamp in his fingers, much like the fastest gun in the West would spin his revolver after outdueling another nameless, faceless wanna-be. The Governor remains in favor of putting the issue to a popular vote, knowing full-well that every instance of gay marriage, everywhere in America, has not been approved by the public. Perhaps he's hoping to generate one big "I TOLD YA SO" to justify this veto. Bu think about it this way; what if the Governor gets his wish, the people of New Jersey cast their votes, and it actually PASSES; and passes OVERWHELMINGLY? Where does that leave him then? I think in my lifetime, New Jersey will recognize gay marriage, and it's no longer an issue of IF, but one of WHEN. For the record, I married the person I WANTED to marry. I didn't need anyone's VOTE or APPROVAL. So why can't everyone?
