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.
Comments: Well it certainly didn´t hurt him either.
big ego to go with his big body. i would ad ise him to become a democrat. he would be a good democrat. he is finished in the republican party, or what is left of the hollowed out shell of the republican party.
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.
Mr. Christie you did indeed helpe the president, no doubt. And yes you don´t really know the mood of the masses out here who will in no way support you...ever. You´re finished like Martin Sheen was in "The Dead Zone".
You are toast, fat man. Mayor Corey Booker is the next Obama, and he is already measuring your office windows for drapes. I´m sure he already plans to replce the Mayor´s Desk Chair because likely the springs are shot.
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.
Mr. Christie is a man without a party. Actions have consequences and his actions were looking out for himself and only himself! That´s what will be his legacy. I agree with fellow LDotters..He´s toast!
I don´t think Babs would have been interested in interviewing him if he hadn´t. But seriously, how stuuuuupid are voters who base their votes on big storm photo ops? That´s like from Clinton´s twenty year old playbook. Christie is probably as dumbfounded by that as I am.
So lemme see- you HAD to hug him to get the Fed money? You´re going to wish he left that check on your nightstand because you´ll never see it. Same thing that your colleague Menendez does with his whores on vacation- Promise them $500 per act but only pay them $100..
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...
Christie is the favorite Republican of the media. He will remain so until he runs for office against a Democrat. Then they will savage him like the do any Repbulican; whether he be a moderate or a conservative.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
