But does it really matter? My job as a teacher is similar in the sense that sometimes students say inappropriate things directed at me. Sometimes they are very angry at me, or the system, or both and curse and voice their displeasure. I cant fly off the handle and curse students out. I cant bully my way and call them out as if I was going to physically fight them. It is my job to be professional at all costs, even when students are showing little to no respect. Its part of my job, I accept it and do my best to help the student change by speaking to him/her in a professional way. Shouldn't Christie be held to the same standard?
I agree. He's the governor of the state of new jersey. He's not going to get much privacy. He needs to be able to censor some of what comes out of his mouth. Again, i like him. I hope he gets it figured out, because I think he's done a lot of good for new jersey. Hell, i'd feel a lot better voting for him for president than Romney. This kind of stuff is pointless though, and cuts your political life short.
I think some of you are letting your disagreements with Copernicus over teacher pay / union issues color your opinion on this completely separate issue. Shame on you.
