The Christie tightrope
Ashbury Park Press [Neptune, NJ], by Michael Symons

Trenton - For a man who championed the Republican brand as keynote speaker at its national convention last year, Gov. Chris Christie has been spending a lot of time making nice with Democrats. Most famously, Christie was complimentary of Democrat President Barack Obama’s response to Sandy just before last year’s election. He then almost as famously ripped House Speaker and fellow Republican John Boehner about the same superstorm. Early on, his re-election campaign has consisted of endorsements by two unions and a Democratic mayor and council, followed by fund-raisers

What´s good for NJ (or any individual state or district) isn´t always good for the nation as a whole. Christie´s embrace of our Emperor, while facilitating disaster aid for his state, may have been the difference in the Emperor´s "re-election". That proves the point.

We will not forget in 2016.

The RINO establishment idiots ditched Sarah Palin and picked Cristie as the keynote speaker at the convention.

Chris Christie cannot ever be a power figure in the Republican party; he is too much of a democrat. I have no respect for the man now.

I know that Sandy was a terrible disaster for New Jersey, but there is much that Christie and New Jersey could have done and could be doing now--like cutting red tape (sound familiar?)--but they will not do it. All that sucking up to Obama really didn´t do very much good.

All his bloviating about doing what´s best for now and not being concerned about a national party or election is outwinded by his terrible speech at the Republican Convention -- you remember, right? The one where he talked about his own growing up, blah blah blah, never mentioning Romney until well into the speech, and then refusing to attack Obama. He can be the spokesman for the RINO Party. The fact that she shoves himself first in line says a lot about his character and what his "presidency" would be like. No thanks, CC. We never heard of you four years ago, and we know now to be suspect of politicians who suddenly appear on the national scene. Perhaps you two have a lot more in common than you care to admit.

We can never forgive him for his embrace of Bathhouse Barry after Sandy. It may have cost us the election. New Jersey Republicans sit on your hands when big boy runs for re-election.

Yeah, he turned out to be a disappointment in many ways. I do agree though that the GOP needs to act more and talk less. Other than that, he can stick with New Jersey. He is good for them...just not necessarily the rest of us. Not even California...and we need all the help we can get here!

It wouldn´t surprise me one bit if 2015 rolls around and polls showing Christie beats every dem candidate.The only thing I´ve seen Christie has done that´s conservative is take on the teacher´s unions and I´ll bet it pretty close to business as usual.

The summer beach season is approaching and the water is still plagued by debris floating around. The sandy relief money will take months,if not years to get out the door,so if he´s waiting on that money to clean things up he can forget about good attendance at the beaches this year.

The left really has to be disappointed not to have anybody to sue for these circumstances,compared to BP where there´s no end to the lawsuits.

I watched footage of the Jersey shore communities devastated by Sandy just this week -it looks as though nothing has been done to clean it up - the residents must still be in a world of financial misery. That so called 80 billion dollar aid package that was so loaded with pork for everywhere but New Jersey and Staten Island should be stickng in Christie´s craw - is he sucking up to obummer for more?

#7, I believe you are mistaken. Sarah Palin was never discussed for and certainly never scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the 2012 convention. She was offered a spot to speak on a different night, was unhappy with the time schedule and declined. But, it was never the keynote slot.

Good news for lawmakers who oppose the Keystone XL oil pipeline: San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer has got your back. Steyer, the hedge-fund-trader-turned-anti-Keystone-activist, pledged Thursday to leverage his largely self-funded super PAC to support members of Congress who come under attack for their opposition to the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline. Some Democrats on the Hill have faced Keystone-related attacks not just from Republicans but also from Democratic-friendly labor activists who support the project.

National Review Online took another gratuitous shot at me Thursday in an article defending Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying: “Hirsi Ali is no Pamela Geller. On the contrary, for her whole life, Hirsi Ali has used anger as a catalyst to great good.” Is it necessary to smear me in order to defend Hirsi Ali? And this is not the first time that NRO has allowed insults and defamation against me and other freedom fighters to run unedited. I hardly know why. But I do know that NRO has no guts, no spine, and no conviction.

A Family Affair:Will Jeb Run?
Only if the Bush Clan Says Yes
Politico, by Peter Schweizer    Original Article

Want to know whether Jeb Bush will run for president? Don’t listen to the learned pundits pouring over Electoral College maps and crunching poll numbers, weighing the former Florida governor’s chances against the rest of the putative 2016 Republican field. Put aside for a moment, the very real questions about his immigration stance and whether he’s too much of an Establishment guy in a Tea Party world. Electability matters, of course, but if you want to get Jeb, it’s the last name that counts, and the family history you should consult for clues as to whether he will seek to join

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values. Why is

Why a Sebelius Senate Run
Could Help Republicans
National Journal, by Sarah Mimms    Original Article

With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

Jeb Bush’s optimism school

Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 12:09:38 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
