Christie calls NRA ad
´reprehensible,´ announces
violence task force

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Matt Katz

TRENTON – Gov. Christie blasted the NRA’s new ad focusing on President Obama’s daughters – he called it “reprehensible” – but he wouldn’t given an opinion about a proposed federal assault weapons ban. Christie’s extensive comments on the issues of guns and violence came during a news conference this afternoon at the Statehouse in which Christie announced the creation of a task force to examine “violence control” measures in the wake of the shooting massacre in Sandy Hook. Led by two former state attorneys general, one Republican and one Democrat, and made up of

Did those children he used as a prop for his photo-op have a choice about being brought into the debate? No. In fact, he motioned for the little boy on his left to step forward for a photo-op, and poor child stood there frozen, as if afraid to approach the president, who then coldly shrugged him off in disdain. And Christie accuses the NRA of using children to make a political point?

Memo to Christie: 250,000 voters joined the NRA this month; your political future is toast, blue state or not.

The NRA was perfectly appropriate and powerful in stating the plain, undeniable truth in the ad. Hearing the NRA speak "truth to power" is painful, so painful to our elitist (would-be) masters. But how amusing the reaction of the more-equal! Bravo NRA--more please.

No. Hussain the Bow-Boy and his socialist sychophants, particularly the infiltrators in the Republican Party, are those that are reprehensible.

Liars: reprehensible

Hiding behind children for photo-ops: reprehensible

Mouthing off with executive decrees designed ultimately to keep schools (and the population) disarmed while "their" children are protected by armed guards: reprehensible

Further dividing this country by the ongoing campaign to finish off the "South": reprenhensible

Running up trillions in debt with no end in sight: reprehensible in it treason

The trampling on the Constitution and the rights of the majority by the Communist/Socialist minority: reprehensible.

Bow-Boy: reprehensible.

Fat-Boy: ditto.

After watching the NRA ad, I didn´t think it was taking a swipe at the Obama girls and their Secret Service detail. I thought it was about Sidwell Friends School that has a whole security department of eleven people to protect the whole school.

I especially liked the last line of the ad, about the President´s girls have professional police protection and "your kids attend school in a gun-free zone!" Works for me!

Chris Christie is just another opportunistic blowhard. I thought the NRA ad was (pardon me) bang on truth-telling. Would the governor find me reprehensible, as well? And, does anyone out there believe the governor´s task force will come out strong for better education for everyone about our Constitution and our civic responsibilities? Not to mention taking personal responsibility among our own friends and families to make sure unstable or irresponsible people who should not have guns, do not have guns.

I note that lefties hold their most strident criticism for ads, campaigns, etc. that contain the highest quotient of truth and/or common sense.

An over-the-top reaction to facts tells us all we need to know about their mindset and their agenda.

You have to be joking!!! 0bama sends his girls to a private school; this school has ELEVEN armed guards with guns and REAL bullets. 0bama just overturned the law that gives expresidents security guards (used to be only ten years after they are no longer president), but 0bama wants armed guards with real guns protecting him for the rest of his life. Now would you not think he is a roaring hypocrite??? And Christie is toast; he is not a Republican, and he will never be president for sure now.

Chris, are you sure it wasn´t horrifying? Perhaps it was the most disgusting thing you´ve ever seen? Calling it bad things doesn´t make it bad. It just shows how afraid you are of the media, how desperate you are to hang with elite hypocrites and how easy it is to get you to pander for every little bit of attention. Pointing out that wannbe elitists say one thing and do another is not ´reprehensible.´ It is what leaders are supposed to do, you politician.

I was at a christie town hall meeting yesterday. A short video ( looked like campaign video), he entered and spoke for a bit , then took questions from the audience. Most were about hurricane sandy ( I live near Long Beach Island which was hit hard) ,......Christie talked about how long he´s been working, 16 hr days !! Well, thats his job. We saw him leave, big black SUVs , black windows, armed guards. His son was with him. New bills have been introduced in the state house, all limiting guns ownership, all sponsored by dems.

Calling Christie a RINO is too kind. He´s at best an opportunist, doing what he has to do to get elected in New Jersey, at worst his successes to date have gone to his head and he now thinks he´s a cut above everyone else. I´d call him a Democrat.

Ann Coulter...eat your words before YOU lose credibility. Your boy Romney wouldn´t fight for his election against the massive and obvious voter fraud and now Christie is demonstrating that he doesn´t understand America either.

Another dense loudmouth fails to understand the truth. The NRA ad addresses Obama´s two-faced position on guns in schools. His kids go to a private school with a dozen or so armed PRIVATE SECURITY (not secret service) staff. Your kids and mine, well "more guns isn´t the answer; more gun laws is".

There is nothing "reprehensible" about the NRA outing elected hypocrites, unless you happen to be one of them.

Ordinary Americans may not have as many options for schooling their children as the elites enjoy, but one thing that ought to be equally available is the presence of armed security in all schools.

Don´t tell me it doesn´t save lives. I know better. I was working in a public school when a former student arrived at what politicians idiotically refer to as a "gun free zone." Fresh from killing his own father, the ex-student was armed with multiple weapons and prepared to continue killing. When he started shooting at students who were having their lunch outside, the only thing standing between a very deranged man and a school full of defenseless students, teachers and staff was one armed deputy and a retired state patrolman. The SP retiree teaches driver´s ed but does not carry a firearm. Because they are TRAINED, these two men managed to disarm the shooter, with the deputy holding his gun on the shooter, and the retired state patrolman cuffing him. THAT is why elites want armed protection for their own kids. They know damned well it works.

Shame on Chris Christie. He has removed any doubts I still had about him. He´s an opportunist and a hypocrite, far too comfortable with the anti Second Amendment crowd.

I have to admit that the "Krispy Kreme" moniker made me laugh, but I won´t criticize Christie because of his weight when there´s so much more to criticize him about.

I don´t know if he was a Republican and has recently had a true change of heart, or if he has always been a liberal and hid it. I think it is the former, but the conversion has been pretty dramatic.

Another possibility is that he knows he needs to get reelected in a blue state and is saying what he thinks they want to hear, but doesn´t believe it. This is the ugliest thing to do because he now loses the people that put him there and the left that always hated him will never love him anyway.

He will never win reelection, so I say if they´re going to hate you, you might as well give them a good reason to.

The RNLA has updates on their website www.rnla.org.
Governor Romney would have made a superb president and Commander in Chief.
He doesn´t deserve to be demeaned by the term " boy ".

Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks. And then there are some broader policy changes that will be coming

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website. "This critical funding would help the Justice Department ensure that America´s police officers have the tools and guidance they need to

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
