Getting down to specifics

Pushed for specifics on what parts of the government he would cut if elected, Chris Christie said that “antiquated” civil services rules and collective bargaining make it impossible to specifically target cuts. Although he has not come up with a number by which he would slash state jobs (he has said that he wants to get rid of two-thirds of political patronage positions), Chris Christie said in a recent radio interview that “it’s very specific to say that you’re going to reduce the size of government.”

By that standard, it's also very specific for Christie to say that he is going to reduce the size of his ample girth by skipping dessert at his next fundraiser.
