Quote of the Day

Gov. Christie at a CNN panel yesterday, "A Pathway to Excellence: The Future of Education in America," on why Republicans should focus energy on urban school systems:
Folks in Newark generally aren't going to vote for me anyway. But the point is if Republicans are willing to go to urban areas where they don't get votes and say these kids are every bit as important as the suburban kids ... and the future of our state's economy and our country's economy are dependent upon those kids becoming productive members of our economy not in prison, not on assistance, not standing on a street corner selling drugs but becoming productive members of our society.
