Gov. Christie´s celebrity star keeps rising higher. Three days after he did a not-half-bad bit on Saturday Night Live´s "Weekend Update," it emerged that Christie has landed a spot on Barbara Walters´ list of the "10 Most Fascinating People" of 2012. Walters went to the State House in Trenton on Tuesday to interview the governor and his wife, Mary Pat, for the 90-minute ABC special, to air Dec. 12. The news that Christie made Walters´ cut came on the same day the New York Times reported he has been busy trying to heal a rift
WOW! The fat sss Gov of NJ is obviosly able to rise above it all, whatever it all is. So Barbara Wawa thinks he´s a half dozen things, certainly not enough to get around his belly. GO FOR IT BIG BOY; BUT WHERE I´M FROM , JCNJ, WE GROW UP TO BE BIG MEN.
I´m reminded of the Austin Powers movie - I forget which of the three it was - when austin´s spy girlfriend is assigned the task of placing a tracking device on Fat Bast*rd´s body, and to do that (the assignment came from Michael York) the spy girlfriend goes to bed with Fat Bast*rd and plants the device, during coitus. And when Austin Powers finds out, he says to her, "How could you do it??" And the girlfriend responds that it was her assignment, to do it by any means necessary. And Austin Powers then says, with a puzzled look on his face, "No! Really! How could you DO it??"
It´s finally time for the Miami Beach High School´s, Class of 1947, Head Pom Pom Girl to call it a career, move to Boca and spend some quality time with the grandkids...All in favor, signify by raising your right hand!
It´s like a parent rewarding a child for what is considered *good* behavior. Christie craves the media attention, and Babwa is willing to dole it out---as long as El Gordo has come around and sees the light. Pubbie pols should turn the tables on the *media* instead, and refuse to grant interviews unless the *media* has proven to be objective.
Another Republican sells his soul for a mess of pottage. He should ask McCain how fast the press can turn on you if you are a Republican. Of course, if he becomes the Democrat he is in his heart, the press will no longer be interested in him. There are lots of Democrats they like better.
I don´t care if the media wraps him up and puts a pretty bow on his head, I will not vote for Christie because I can´t TRUST him.
Also, I am also more than troubled by the autopsies done by Gov. Romney´s "supporters" after the election. If you have constructive criticism, give it privately. We don´t have to gleefully eat our own. Another thing, can we please stop the electioneering already! Good grief, this is like the widow eyeing her next victim at her husband´s funeral. Give it a rest. Sorry about the off topic rant.
I´m with #25. What a beacon of light in a dark world Allen West is. Shame on Little Debbie SnackCakes and the pubbies who scrooooed him out of his district and the ignorant vote counters who can´t/won´t count the ballots correctly.
This is another indication that Baba Wawa is way past her sell by date. Are you sure she´s not just stuffed and parked on that couch every day?
Christie is just another suck-up RINO with dreams of being the republican whom the media will love through the 2016 campaign. When campaigning gets going in earnest he´ll get McCained and thrown under the bus. On the plus side, the back wheels of the bus won´t be able to move over his fat carcass.
Christie did a good job on his first budget. That´s about all I will say for him. For Walters, I have never understood why anyone is impressed by her. She has never broken a big story. She has a speech impediment. She doesn´t do in depth interviews (asking celebrities which TREE they would be doesn´t count). She is to blame for every atrocity on that noisome The View.
Isn´t this really what our RINOs all crave...to be thought of as "fascinating" and invited to hang with the cool kids? The right parties. The right TV shows. The suckup editorials and articles in the most read newspapers and magazines. And boy do they know it. Once they see that they´ve hooked the big tuna, they start reeling him in.
#9 nailed it Big Time! The Dems think they´ve chosen our next candidate!
I saw the coverage of Christie and the little girl in the pic. I also saw him with Obie and another lady in tears. BOTH TIMES he looked and saw that a camera was focused in on him and he immediately took the girl/woman by the shoulders, got real close and looked really concerned and cared as if his life depended on it. Blech and Ptschaw!
You want optics? He´ll do optics - just get a wide angled lense. (I know, I shouldn´t have gone there. I´m just so damned dissapointed in him after seeing him stand up to the teachers union.) He´s done/fork etc.
Chris is great fun, able to be articulate and seemingly plain talking...as he tells the truth and solves problems He gives off a sense of rare honesty not found in the privileged electeds. BUT, he HAS to stick to business. Watching him arm in arm with the ragig dictator was a sickening experience. Chris, thinking he is now a full fledged celebrity, will no longer be an effective manager.
Christie lands(with a loud thud)a spot on Baba Wawa´s "Most Fatcinating" list. Boy these liberal and RINO (yes I know that sounds redundant) weenies make it to easy. Next thing you know the blockheaded governor of Gnu Joiseey will be on "The View". When that happens they will need to bring out a couch just for him.
Despite recent pushes by the Obama administration for immigration reform, a new poll released Thursday by Gallup shows that a majority of Americans are far more concerned with other issues such as healthcare, the economy, and a general sense of dissatisfaction with the government. Twenty one percent of respondents said that the most important problem facing the United States was dissatisfaction with government, while 19 percent said the economy in general was the most important problem. Rounding out the top three responses was healthcare, which 17 percent labeled as the most important issue. Immigration was second to last with three
New Yorkers have long endured other people’s celebrations. On St. Patrick’s Day, they know to stay out of the pubs in Midtown if they do not want to be overwhelmed in a sea of semiconscious green. They avoid driving into Manhattan at all costs during the Puerto Rican Day Parade. Fashion’s Night Out is an occasion to stay in if you live in SoHo. And New Year’s Eve? Amateur hour — unless an out-of-town visitor drags a native kicking and screaming to Times Square. Now, a new contender has emerged for the event that many New Yorkers love to hate:
KATHLEEN KANE, Pennsylvania´s attorney general since January, is now considering a run for higher elected office. The Scranton native is not planning to enter the crowded 2014 Democratic primary election for governor, as many speculated. Instead, Kane is eyeing a 2016 run for the U.S. Senate against Pat Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican. Three sources close to Kane confirmed that she is very interested in a 2016 Senate run. "I think she sees it as a good opportunity," one of the sources said. "I think it´s something she´s seriously looking at." No decision has been made, according to a second
Police urge public to remain indoors; capital bracing for up to 20 inches of snow; J´lem Mayor Barkat says city facing "rare storm, the likes of which we´ve never seen"; scores in Gaza evacuate homes due to flooding. Tens of thousand of homes around Israel were left without electricity Friday as sever winter storms continued to batter the country. More than 25 thousand families in Jerusalem and surrounding areas were cut off from power, Israel Radio reported. (Photos) As heavy snowfall resumed in capital late Friday afternoon, the Jerusalem Municipality strongly cautioned all residents to stay off the roads and
A cross atop Mount Soledad in California is an unconstitutional religious display on government land and must come down, a federal judge in San Diego ruled late Thursday. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ordered the cross, which honors veterans, must be removed within 90 days -- a decision that could result in the case being sent back to the U.S. Supreme Court. Burns immediately stayed his order pending an expected appeal. The original lawsuit was filed in 2006 by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Jewish Veterans of the United States of American and several other Southern
A 55-year-old man who was charged last month in the strangulation of a World War II veteran died Thursday afternoon while in custody at Cook County Jail on the city´s West Side, officials said. Matthew Stoeckein, 55, was pronounced dead at 1:55 p.m. at the jail located at 26th Street and California Boulevard, according to the Cook County medical examiner´s office. Preliminary information indicated Stocklein was found hanging in his Division 10 cell. Stocklein´s cellmate, who works as a cleaner at the jail was not in his cell when Stocklein was found, according to a spokeswoman for the sheriff´s office. The
Republicans are more optimistic than Democrats about the 2014 midterm elections, according to a new Pew Research poll. Fifty-five percent of Republicans polled think the GOP will do better than it has in recent elections. Thirty-three percent think it will do about the same, and only 5 percent believe it will do worse. Democrats polled were less optimistic. Just 43 percent say the party will do better than it has in recent elections. Another 43 percent believe it will do about the same, and 9 percent believe it will do worse. Republicans are also more enthusiastic about the midterms than Democrats.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it
