Honest and Refreshing

I thought this video of the recently elected New Jersey governor Chris Christie taking on a reporter was pretty great:

I was talking with a friend not to long ago about how she was having a conversation of a similar sort with a guy that she knows. As soon as she countered any of his claims on certain topics, all of a sudden their conversation turned into a confrontation. Sometimes disagreement leads to digging in of one's heels, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. I just liked that his response was so off the cuff, but so well articulated.

I love that. There is definitely a time and a place for that kind of directness & upfront honestly. Politics is definitely one of those places.
