Booker, Christie Ham It Up for Video

Mayor and governor have fun with their images

Just because they're the state's two most prominent politicians doesn't mean they don't have a sense of humor.

The office of Gov. Chris Christie yesterday released a lighthearted video co-starring Newark Mayor Cory Booker as a peripatetic go-to guy, riffing off his now national-scale image as a man of action following his  from a burning building several weeks ago.

As the Democratic mayor of the state's largest city is depicted doing everything from coming up with a spare guitar for Bruce Springsteen to catching a falling baby, a faux-frustrated Christie hisses "Booker!"

The video was produced for the New Jersey Press Association's Legislative Correspondent's Club show.

Under President Obama, America's seen the slowest increase in federal spending in decades. And the President has a balanced plan that would reduce the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next 10 years. Share this chart to get the facts out. (via MarketWatch): Reagan 82-85: 8.7 t " 86-89: 4.9 Bush1 90-93 5.4 Clinton 94-97: 3.2 " 98-01: 3.9 BushII 02-05: 7.3 Bush II 06-09 8.1* (stimulus passed onto Obama in 09) Obama: 10-13: 1.4 Source: Haver Analytics....so please, have your facts about who spent what, where.
