“I’m going over there because it’s harder to hate up close.” – George W Bush

For anyone unaware Chris Christie is the republican governor of the democratic state of New Jersey. Chris Christie is passionate and has upset many people however he has gotten a lot done for the state of New Jersey. He says he was able to accomplish what he has through personal business relationships. He makes it a point to get to know people because of what George W Bush said.
It can become easy to demonize a person especially when we disagree with their ideals, politics or religion but, I can’t help but think if, we got to know everyone it would be a lot harder to hate them.
What do you think?
