Senator Joe Kyrillos told Politickernj's Max Pizarro that Governor Christie's budget address was "a revolutionary speech for a revolutionary time. I think people are more prepared for it than the political establishment."
I think he's right. I expect Christie's favorable polling numbers will be in the high 50's or better. Democrats will review the polling numbers harder than the do the budget numbers.
In the meantime the Dems are whining cautiously.
The NJ Assembly Democratic twits are whining to their 192 followers.
Senate Majority Whiner Barbara Buono suggested that Christie's budget might not really be cutting spending at all, but rather "only illusory and simply shift the burden onto someone else, like homeowners, college students or low- and middle-income earners."
Our friends at InTheLobby have a great analysis of the speech and the Democrats whining.
