Tom Moran, and editor at the Jersey’s Star-Ledger, says Chris Christie is a pathological liar.

“Don’t misunderstand me,” Moran wrote. “They all lie, and I get that. But Christie does it with such audacity, and such frequency, that he stands out.”

Moran distinguished Christie’s mendacity from other politicians’, who tend to obfuscate or dissemble, by pointing out that Christie “lies with conviction.” He noted Christie’s 2009 promise to unions that public sector pensions were “sacred” to him, the force of which was matched by Christie’s vigor in targeting those pensions.

“His hands don’t shake, and his eyes don’t wander,” Moran wrote. “I can hardly blame the union leaders who met with him for believing him.”

Moran cited more examples of what he characterized as bald-faced dishonesty over issues ranging from Bridgegate to abortion to gun control, and called upon the national media to be more vigilant in seeing through Christie’s tough-talk image.
