He didn’t call them idiots, or nudniks

The Asbury Park Press is still struggling for relevance and their trying to get it by attempting to set Governor Chris Christie’s agenda and schedule.  Their likelihood of success is less than that of Star Ledger Editorial Board Editor Tom Moran’s attempts to get Christie to improve his manners.

Back in May, APP ran an multi-part expose on the Lakewood School System.  So few people read about it, cared about it or took it seriously that when Christie came to Freehold for a Town Hall Meeting the following week, no one brought it up.  That prompted an front page editorial rant that bashed Christie, Congressman Chris Smith and others not directly responsible for the mess in Lakewood for not paying attention to the APP Neptune Nudniks.

Last week the governor visited a private school (publicly funded) in Lakewood that serves the developmentally disabled.  The Nudniks responded with another front page rant and by getting the Lakewood Board of Education President to write an open letter to the governor complaining that he is not paying attention to them on their schedule.

Yesterday, the Nudniks sent a reporter to a Christie press conference in Hackensack about a new solar power farm to ask him about the Lakewood Schools and why he hasn’t visited:

    Is the “extrodinary” work also “thorough and efficient”? Is it efficient to have one-to-one education at the cost of $90, 000 per pupil per year; is it productive? Is it efficient to have gender specific buses to take some (the majority) to their respective private schools?

    The issues in Lakewood are much larger than just the instruction and training for children with “hidden intelligence”. It is these larger and related issues that Christie, so far, isn’t addressing.

    This is precious and should be added to the Chick Fil A…What? course at Wharton next semester. Christie goes to Lakewood and then to Israel both on somebody else’ dime to highlight waste and more foreign aid. And a newspaper that has forgotten the meaning of the word news or the definition and responsibility of journalism in a country with free speech gets free ad space.
    You can’t make this stuff up.

    Sorry Christie went to Hackensack and was asked about Lakewood, still on somebody else’ dime.
