New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing a storm of controversy, and add to that a real storm. Bad weather nixed his inauguration celebration. He is giving an inaugural speech Tuesday in Trenton, New Jersey.
Christie instead focus on bipartisanship and contrast himself to partisan Washington.
From an advance excerpt of his speech:
This election has taught us that the ways we divide each other -- by race, by class, by ethnicity, by wealth, by political party -- is neither permanent nor necessary. Our dreams are the same: a good job, a great education for our children, safe streets in our neighborhood and core values which give our lives real meaning
No matter how hard he tries to avoid the scandal over traffic gridlock in Fort Lee as apparent political payback, his words will be scrutinized for any reference or hint regarding investigations by a U.S. attorney and the state legislature, as well as a promised internal review.
