There was an interesting line in the Governor’s press conference announcing his picks for the NJ Supreme Court. In response to questions that will come regarding his nominees, the Governor said:
You are what you say you are, not what other people say you are
While that sounds like a good soundbite, it’s complete nonsense. You are what you do, not what you say. Actions speak louder than words, so the nominees should be judged on what they do and have done, as much if not more than what they say or others say about them.
