Christie agrees Romney
comments were ´wrong´,
calls on GOP to pivot

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Daniel Strauss

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/16/2012 10:00:01 AM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Friday that Mitt Romney’s comments that President Obama won the election by giving groups “gifts” were wrong. Romney said he agreed with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), who said the comments were "absolutely wrong," but avoided directly criticizing Romney. He also said it was time to pivot from the election and move on. “I always hate this kind of scapegoating after the election. When you lose, you lost. Someone asked me, ´Why did Mitt Romney lose?´ I said because he got less votes than Barack Obama. That´s why,”

And what exactly does that mean?? I´m so tired of the worthless decription "pivot."

Romney was exactly right and as the only republican to tell it like it is has gone up in my estimation. The U.S. has become a country of parasites who are afraid their government money might be cut off by the republicans. He was also exactly right when it came to 47% not being worth his time and trouble. I think he genuinely tried to reach out to them, but ran into the very brick wall he predicted.

Romney´s statement was factually correct.
Christie´s statement is factually false.
Didn´t fool me. 53% of Americans were not fooled by Christie´s words or Jindal´s words.
RINOS they are, RINOS they will stay..but will WE stay Republicans?

How about investigating the vote fraud before ´moving on´? People need to do jail time - and then be hanged as traitors for pulling this.

The only thing wrong with what Romney said was what he didn´t mention: the very real possibility (if not probability) of massive voter fraud.

Romney is right, along with massive voter fraud (Even the GOP election people in Philly didn´t vote for Romney somehow?) First hand, my Republican CPA son who is my executor has still not accepted how much trouble we are in. But I admit, from Blue Maryland he called this election months ago.

The fact that Christie has his nose so far up Obama´s rear end must indicate that he is aware that there are "brown lung benefits" in the Obamacare plan.

This fatso meant to say "fewer votes" not "less votes."
We hope to see less of him in the coming years. Mitt Romney is dead-on right about what he said. When you feed, clothe, house, telephone and give free stuff and promise ease of conditions without earning any of it, you ALWAYS get their vote.
I am glad that I left the Republican party some time back. They are a mess with no direction.

In swing states, Obama used Romney´s "47%" comment in tv/radio ads with disabled vets, nursing home residents & hospitalized elderly. They were very devastating. Romney was never suggesting taking away our social safety net, so why make or support statements that can be used as a sledgehammer against you?

Where oh where were Christie, Rubio, and Jindal in the primaries? That´s right, they were hiding under their desks. These self-proclaimed next generation GOP geldings couldn´t find the spine to run against Dear Leader, messiah and first black President. But now the election is over, and we´ve lost the country to 4 more years of socialism, largely thanks to that NJ whale traitor, and here come the GOP new generation losers storming out of the foxhole talking about Amnesty and more government goodies and looking to twist the political knife in the back of Romney. Unbelievable, these good for nothing careerist cowards. ,

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
