Governing by chance better than governing by cronyism

Chris Christie says it's clear that Jon Corzine "has no control over the budget or our government." Christie said in a statement, "He promised four years ago to change the way Trenton budgeted, but this budget uses billions in one-shot gimmicks, including this latest tax amnesty windfall, that will have to be made up in future budgets. This kind of haphazard governing by chance just doesn't cut it when we're facing 8.8% unemployment, skyrocketing property taxes and real pain for all middle class New Jerseyans."

If Christie's use of deferred prosecution agreements to reward his friends and cronies with lucrative no-bid contracts is any indication, "haphazard governing by chance" may actually be better.
