NJ Gov. Chris Christie may love Bruce Springsteen's music, but Boss doesn't love GOP pol's politics

(By Larry McShane, NY Daily News) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is a huge Bruce Springsteen fan - but the opposite is clearly not the case.

The Boss, in a letter to the editor of 'The Asbury Park Press', made it obvious Wednesday that he's no fan of Christie's fiscal approach.

The Jersey native sent a note of thanks to the paper for a front-page story headlined "As Poverty Rises, Cuts Target Aid."

"The article is one of the few that highlights the contradictions between a policy of large tax cuts, on the one hand, and cuts in services to those in the most dire needs, on the other," Springsteen wrote.
