Excommunicating Christie

The day after a presidential election is a time for soul-searching for the losing party. Republicans need to look in the mirror and seriously analyze the troublesome reality that they have forgotten how to win important elections. With unemployment stuck around 8 percent, economic growth basically nonexistent and the nation suffocating from record debt, the White House should have been the GOP’s for the taking in 2012. The elephants need a new dynamic leader. It’s vital they don’t pick a RINO. The biggest bull in the herd is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

How was he a hero this long?

The biggest bull in the herd is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The moderate party establishment naturally gravitates toward this type of Republican in Name Only (RINO) because of his liberal positions on social issues. Mr. Christie took on the Garden State’s teacher unions, but it otherwise takes a lot of hunting to find other issues on which the governor supports the conservative line. He has a liberal record on guns, abortion, homosexual marriage and global warming, for example.

The GOP doesn't need to look into any mirrors or search any souls. The GOP carried the red states, who are perfectly happy, and do not wish to have the blue states political ruin imposed upon them by the blue states. The liberals say they love diversity, just not conservatives, and insist on subverting the U.S. constitution to impose federalism on red states, which is just not ever going to work. So stop the hand wringing, and fight for the freedoms guaranteed by our constitution, only agreed to by the states upon condition of protecting their rights.

His liberalisms were there for all to see before the convention, but I was finished with him the night of that unbelievably self-aggradizing (sp?) speech. Me, me, and more me - oh by the way, vote for Romney.

I am a Jersey Republican. Let's primary this self-indulgent slob. I understand his acting as Governor to get aid for the state but to slobber all over the President because through him Christie could meet Springsteen (that's the real reason for the slobbering) and THEN, NOT going to the Romney event. Forget it. Taken all in all (including giving a keynote address that dissed the nominee) he is a RINO who acts all tough. Primary him. Either we will get someone more conservative or we will push him to the right.

If the man really does have Presidential aspirations, he blew it. He forgets that he'll need more than New Jersey's votes to get there. I wasn't enamored of the man when he spoke at the convention and I'm less enamored now. Stay in Jersey, Chris, and rebuild your state.

Christie is the new Charlie Crist. He is a traitor and fits well with Obama because his whole keynote speech was
"...me, me,me,I,I,I..."
He will lose reelection to a Democrat in NJ because the unions will secure revenge. Our future is Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Suzanna Martinez, etc. It is not Rick Santorum - let's not make that mistake.

Christie is going the way of Thomas Kean and Christine Todd Whitman, cocktail-hour elites who crave acceptance by the MSM and wind up outcasts. Christie is only different in his lust is for the cocktail weenies and the buffet table rather than the drinks.

For what it's worth I think the polls showing a BIG Romney win just motivated the women who want free stuff for birth control and the free loading college kids to go vote. Stop the constant polling.

Using hip vernacular, Jersy outrage, and jokes to impress others about himself does not make him less of a phoney.
If he wasn't a phoney, he'd be in an honest line of work, instead of New Jersey politics.

There is little doubt that Christie's behavior/performance during the campaign and just before the election indicated that his ultimate goal was to engrace himself with the Deomocrats in his state and those Republicans that had doubts about Romney.The final nail was when he was "all-over" Obama during his brief visit to the state.
As far as I am concern he is not worth being future candidate for any political post. He is just a "white man's Obama".

"Mr. Christie has long had a reputation for not reciprocating assistance others have given him and for mostly being in it for himself. That certainly was the message sent when operatives leaked the rumor a few days before the election that the New Jerseyan had been Mitt Romney’s first choice for running mate. This served the triple purpose of distancing the governor from a potential loss on Tuesday, portraying conservative Rep. Paul Ryan, the actual vice-presidential nominee, as comparatively ineffective on the campaign trail, and implying the GOP ticket would have fared better with Mr. Christie on it."

The Fat RINO has no future in the Republican Party. Agree with my previous postings, those here and Decker who predict that he'll be the 'bipartisan' joining a new Obama cabinet as AG, possibly to free up Holder for the SCOTUS. He's outta NJ.

What Christie did with NØbama is unforgivable.

But I still hope he stays on as the NJ governor for many years to come. NJ is about as deep blue of a lie-beral state as you are going to find. We are never going to get a conservative Republican elected dogcatcher there. At least as governor, he bucks the unions on a regular basis. That is about as good as we can hope for. Better a RINO is a state like that that at least gets it right every once in awhile, than a real Demon-RAT that will get it wrong every time.

But if he tries to cross state lines to run for national office as a Republican, he is toast. Elephants have VERY long memories...

Re the leadership of the party and not picking a RINO...would it not be an end run if Ryan, Rubio, West (even if not reelected), Mia Love, Jindal, Portman, Martinez, Pence and others re-form into a Leadership Council? I was incredibly pro-Sarah Palin at one point, but I think she blew it by not supporting the national ticket. (I think some in the Romney camp turned her away, certainly from the convention, but she's got to play a longer game if she believes in principles.)

I hope that Mitt Romney can also stay connected to the national and local organizations. His close defeat against uncontrollable forces (including voter fraud and vote reprocessing via engineered software)should not send him to Coventry. His experience, class and a strong campaign earns him a voice. Let's give him an interval, and invite him into the fold--but understand if he wants to stay away and be private from here on in.

The RNC needs to be reconstructed. They guided McCain into being a toothless campaigner; they torpedoed Palin and helped lead assaults on her. Christie the big-mouth bully has no principles to be worthy of more than being one of them: liberal, self-serving glob of avarice.

I also think the RNC is completely ineffective at the local ground game--the county, congressional, state levels. No way should we have taken the pounding for the Senate that we did and we are gonna pay as Reid is changing the rules to further disenfranchise the minority. That is why that Leadership Council has to be separate from the party and with a lot of Tea Party representation.

#25 would have looked at the Founders and thought them a bunch of wealthy out of touch "country club" types.

Look at what our political process has turned into. The incumbent is home free. He is on salary, we pay him while he is campaigning and anyone who doesn't believe we foot the bill for all those Taxpayer One flights is delusional.

A challenger has to have a decent education, a grasp of our country's political, economic, societal issues - and more - plus meaningful experience (until Obama) that he can put aside for about two years while he devotes himself to campaigning.

When #25 grows up, he may understand that.

I'm also waiting for a definition of a Constitutional Conservative. The Constitution was intended to limit the federal government and to guarantee certain freedoms. The rest was left to the states, or so they thought. Period.

I didn't see a shred of socialism, regular or lite, in Mitt Romney.

I come from Christie's old political stomping grounds in Morris County, NJ.

We already knew, here, what a jerk he was:
Christie won a county freeholder's seat after challenging Republican incumbents from the left.
He also defamed a Republican woman he was trying to unseat (in search engine use key terms "Cecelia Laureys" and "Christie" and "freeholder"). A court affirmed a finding of defamation.

Christie the failed freeholder was booted from that office at the next election. He had the good luck to be appointed by GWB to the position of US Attorney, where he got plenty of face time on TV, and vaulted to national prominence.

I found it interesting that the Tea Party seemed to be absent so much compared to 2010. I believe it was taken over by the social agenda Anti abortion group.. Look who they put in to run.. I myself think all the Senator wannabees had to do was declare they were anti abortion and ..well gee.. your our guy/woman. I am just as much against abortion as anyone..but the TEA stand for Taxed Enough Already!.. Every freakin election Abortion and sex gay or otherwise is thrown at the Repubs and they are just stupid enough to take the bait... Then that is all you hear and read..Repubs anti gay anti abortion anti birth control. Stop with the social stuff...that can be dealt with but damn it when this country is on the brink of extinction, we have more important things to talk about...save the country then correct the other stuff..Now we have nothing..nothing...
I am so disgusted with all the social crap..

If you ever taped the debate of the Republican Party candidates for office - one friend did and I watch them twice - You will notice that every other "conteder" with the possible exception of Ron Paul attacked Romney at every chance they got. I am sure that the Dedmocrat team took notice of the many points real or false and utilized them to put together a script for the final election. Republicans did as much damage to their ultimate candidate as the other party.
This is one big reason thagt the Republican party is self-destructive. After Romney was selected at the convention many so call "conservatives" dissapear from the scene. To name just a ew big names in politics: PALING AND GINGRICH

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday.

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
