Christie: I didn´t
help the president win

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/13/2012 10:25:33 AM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he wasn´t responsible for helping President Obama to win a second term in an interview with ABC News´ Barbara Walters set to air Wednesday. Christie has been criticized by some Republicans for embracing President Obama in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, speaking appreciatively about the federal assistance offered to his state. But Christie adamantly denied that the bipartisan photo-ops with the president were of any assistance on Election Day. "First of all, I didn´t help [Obama] win," Christie said.

Well it certainly didn´t hurt him either.

For better or worse Christie is finished. He will see the writing on the wall when grass roots Republican support collapses under him (I know the mental image is too tempting) next year.
Unless another RR emerges Jeb/Marco looks like the ticket. Jeb will have run from Texas as the Constituion does not allow one a State ticket.

Christie helped Obama with the sham that Obama was some sweet, caring guy who cared about New Jersey. The area is still a hell hole, but everyone thought Obama cared so much, before and after he ran off to Vegas for a fundraiser.

If Christie had thrown down the gauntlet and said, "Mr. President, stay in this area and do your job," the impression would have been much different.

Christie also rudely said he didn´t give a damn about whether Romney visited or not, and as far as I know, never thanked Romney and the citizens of Ohio for their fundraising efforts and food/blanket collection.

Christie is a graceless clod, who somehow found his softer side when Obama visited. "Oh boy, Springsteen will not ignore me anymore! I have arrived!

Christie makes me sick and I will never again give him the time of day.

Rasmussen, and many many other polling org´s and the voters they polled say otherwise, Governor.

According to Rasmussen, %64 said the response to Sandy was integral to their vote.

I´ve long said the whole American trend of "star-intercoursing" diminishes us as a people. Christie is proof positive.....he sacrificed AMERICA for a kiss from freaking Bruce Springsteen, one of the WORST singers ever to walk a stage, and one of the worst humans to walk the earth.

Christie thought Obama had (pink tulle)coattails big enough to support his Gibraltar-esque butt and he wanted to ride ´em all the way to... He misjudged everyone´s reactions to shamelessness. Of course, he wanted Obama to be re-elected, and he wanted to be part of it in any way he could. May he fade quickly into oblivion; may he soon be indistinguishable from a half-eaten, 4-day-old Krispy Kreme on the side of the road...

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
