LETTER: Defends New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie

I get a kick out of the editorials slamming New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for spending an afternoon on the beach.

Not too long ago, in October 2013, the federal government was shut down for two weeks.

National parks were closed.

People got tickets for parking in the Storm King area in Olympic National Park.

During this same year, in June, President Barack Obama took an estimated $60 million to $100 million family trip to Africa.
