President Christie? Get Serious.

There is a provocative column this morning by one of the few people whom I admit to reading regularly (irrespective of whether I disagree or agree with him): Paul Mulshine of the Star-Ledger in Newark.

See his post here:

I think this talk of the new New Jersey governor being presidential timber after just five months in office is premature and shows the baseness of the appeal -- to the rubes in the "heartland" -- of anyone who appears "tough.". That is, by being publicly confrontational (which I've contended before is a long term strategic mistake) and boisterous.

A chief executive should be -- has to be -- a statesman. And real toughness, when it must be shown or mustered, is best used not for show, but for actual impact.
