@Pretty, She was welcoming Governor Christy with open arms every republican in the country saw it,(every major news company covered it) They were all in discussion about a vice presidency for her! And now New Jersey fine governor was caught with obstruction of the bridge crossing from NJ to NYC (itís really a pain when itís working right) and she is running like a rabbit,sorry she is just a politician that only cares about herself, Now to answer Susanna, yes you do have the right to voice your option!

As a repentant Republican, I admit she has botched the job--big time.

As a registered democrat who has gone door to door for democratic candidates and contributed to their campaigns all I can say is that the two best governors in the last thirty years were both republicans and the worst was the democrats golden boy Bill Richardson whose administration took corruption and incompetence to previously unseen heights. He basically left us bankrupt and with staggering debt. As much as I hate her Ed. Secretary the rest of her performance has been good. She is 100% on point about not issuing drivers licenses to criminal fugitives.

as if there is nothing corrupt about Martinez and her waste of money on witchhunts on nonexistent voting fraud and the decimating water pollution protection through her special interest appointments.

SANTA FE >> It's been said you need to keep your friends close but your enemies closer.

For Gov. Susana Martinez, the difficulty comes in trying to keep your frenemies away.

Politicos all around the state are still buzzing about a secret audio recording, showing the governor and staffers from the 2010 gubernatorial campaign swearing and deriding political opponents while advisor Jay McCleskey discusses how the administration could respond to criticism by posting "a YouTube video that no one will ever see."

I never said nor implied that Martinez was virtuous. She's a politician so she is obviously a corrupt liar by definition. She's just less corrupt and less of a liar than her opponents.

Her opponents haven't yet enough opportunity to be that corrupt. Give them time.

the rules to allow water pollution is very serious and permanent. I don't think any of the no-names have been able to top that one.
