Chris Christie says he didn't snub Mitt
Romney, blasts know-nothing,
disgruntled Romney staffers

Boston Globe, by Callum Borchers

Original Article

Posted By:MinnesotaWild(man), 11/7/2012 6:59:15 AM

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed the “know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers” who in a Huffington Post story on Monday accused him of snubbing Mitt Romney by skipping Sunday’s rally in Pennsylvania. Christie, a vocal backer of Romney, said during a press conference that he told the Republican presidential nominee before Hurricane Sandy hit that he would likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign. “I said to him, ‘Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it’s going to, I’m off the campaign trail from here to Election Day,’ ” Christie recalled.

The anger of facing 4 more years of this national nightmare is going to have Republicans screaming for scalps in their own party. That is okay with me.

I would not be so upset with Colin Powell if I thought he put Race before Party. But, I feel like he put Race before Country. And, that is inexcusable.

It's Christie's fawning embrace of the dear leader, and what he enabled the destroyers of America to do with it, not any snub of Romney, that has me put off.

#4 says it for me. I can surely understand the Gov putting his own state above the election in an emergency. But to go giddy and suck up to Obama and Bruce Springssteen is embarrassing. He had better join the Dem party after this. All he had to do was act dignified. What is with Repub men like Christie, Akin, Mourdock, etc. Can't they use better judgement? Keep your mouths shut. Do not give the enemy an opening.

Hey Christie, you fat idiot, exit polls say Sandy was most important to 15% and very important to 42%. Your little stunt hurt Romney deeply.

And Ann Coulter saying he had to do it for the federal dollars is just as disgusting.

I hate to lecture people here but some of you need to grow up and stop blaming Christie for Romney's loss. It's absolutely childish and ridiculous.

Obama won re-election because he started with 47% of the people receiving government aid in his pocket. That's incredibly difficult to overcome. People are stupid and scared and they voted to be taken care of by their government. They did not vote for Obama because he went for a stroll with a fat man on a beach. You're embarrassing yourselves.

The governor of New Jersey did what he thought he had to do to help his state. It is unfortunate the the people of this country elected a thug to the whitehouse, but that is what christie had to deal with and he dealt with it. He must realize that with that decision he reached the pinnacle of his political career. And he must come to terms with that....unless the dems offer him a better deal. Switch to the dem party and become a disposable freak that they trot out for exhibition but give no real power to.

NJ would have gotten federal dollars anyway because it's a reliable blue state.

I keep thinking of President Obama laughing with Michelle at all the destruction of the homes of the one percenters on the Jersey coastline. After all, they didn't build that.

Shame on Gov. Christie!

That said, this election was stolen with voter fraud. If states don't start requiring voter ID, we will be screwed forever.

Ok, fine. I understand Christie had to act like a big fat whore to get federal dollars. Actually most don't degrade themselves such, but some do...especially some who have wet dreams about a certain has-been from New Jersey...but I digress.
But to slobber all over your supposed opponent? Just for Fed dollars?

I'd venture to say that, when 2016 rolls around, and the RNC/GOP trot Christie out as your republican candidate for president, you will all fall in line as usual, despite the rumblings of discontent being spoken now.

That's what'll never change, and that's why the partys over folks.

What #20 and #24 said. If some people want to lecture, there are plenty of places to do it and get popular with demonrats. It looks like some gopers cannot wait to jump on the old bandwagon of "let's blame "stupid" Republicans. Not me.. I blame the weasels who call themselves "independents" yet slobbered over the rotund Christie hugging on the skinny one while weeping over "Sandy". After he got his photo-op, obama must have laughed his skinny rear end off at the pathetic loser-Christie. And THEN Christie blubbers about how he broke down in tears because he talked to the "boss"? That's the last straw! To the ones who want to defend this RINO-Traitor_Christie, fine. That's on you..but don't expect any Conservatives to follow your lead.. we won't.

The GOP needs to go the way of the Whigs. Christie is just one exhibit.

Can you believe the fawing press coverage that blunted all the momentum of Romney showing Mr President in his bomber jacket? I guess it had more influence that four years of abject policy failures.

Thanks for nothing. Be assured, though, that Zippy will be happy to shower you with my Southern tax monies for your union workers and teachers in NJ.

It doesn't matter if Christie cost Romney any votes. He showed himself to be disloyal and more concerned about his own prospects than the country's. He would have gotten federal money regardless. There is a word, by the way, for someone who does something otherwise repugnant for money.

#1: Powell didn't put race before party. He is a bitter man who decided he didn't like the Republican party after his experience of not being beloved enough in the Bush administration. Sure, there's a racial element, but it's minor compared to the insulted ego element. For him, it's personal, and to heck with the country.

Chris Christie ... I don't think he really made much of a difference, but I'm willing to keep an open mind. He certainly has moved past his sell-by date, although I do think he's a positive force in NJ and should be re-elected. Booker's going to clean his clock, though.

I have very little to say, but must admit that I was praying that we could overcome our kardashian worshipping society, where the lack of talent or achievement is strangely honored. So we have a kardashian president for four more years. The damage he will do to our country cannot be measured at this time, but it will be huge.

And Chris Christie is a treasonous bast*rd, who no longer exists, as far as I am concerned.

The american electorate got what it deserved. Shame on us. God must be weeping.

The RNC needs someone on board with enough sense of develop a "hurricane strategy." The Dems always have one and use hurricanes to beat Republicans up to make them out to be racists and uncaring rich folk. Chris Christie needed to take some lessons from Bobby Jindal on how to behave with the president - courteous, but a suck-up. That Christie did not avoid being used as pawn by the Democrats just goes to show he has not spent any time noticing how the Dems politicized hurricanes. Of course, he was not in a southern state and big hurricane disasters had little impact on him or his state and were very easy to ignore.

The truth is Obama and FEMA has done the same job on Sandy as was done on Katrina, except for Katrina, they had to do it in water that did not recede for weeks.

Christie went overboard with Obama and is afraid of Corey Booker. Crying over Springsteen? Give me a break.

We all understand Christie couldn't snub Obama, especially after the control freak in NYC told him not to come there. He needed the money.

But Christie went overboard and made Obama look like the messiah many think he is. Then FEMA drops the ball and so many people on Staten Island are ignored. But Christie apparently got all the money NJ needed.

Republicans don't need another northeastern liberal RINO.

Romney understood Christie not campaigning for him after the storm, no problem. But when I saw Obomberjacket and Christie side by side and heard Christie say what a great job the president had done it looked like an endorsement. It wasn't, at least Christie said it wasn't, but it was the perception from the photo-op and the words Christie said. Christie would have gotten the federal dollars whether Obama was there or not, but right or wrong, it was percieved as an endorsement and Romney lost. I think that moment killed Christie's chances for a future presidential run.

He didn't have to have a photo op and he didn't have to jump the shark with the praise. Period. If Christy has no more impulse control than that...

Whatever Christie did, the dems and the msm scum would portray Zero in the best possible way to Romneys detriment, For the Republicans Sandy was a lose-lose situation. Fox had more liberals on panels than the other networks had in total.

Dear Class of ´13:
You´ve Been Scammed

No one else is going to tell you this, so I might as well. You sit here today, $30,000 or $40,000 in debt, as the latest victims of what may well be the biggest conspiracy in U.S. history. It is a conspiracy so big and powerful that Dan Brown won’t even touch it. It’s a conspiracy so insidious that you will rarely hear its name. Move over, Illuminati. Stand down, Wall Street. Area 51? Pah. It’s nothing. The biggest conspiracy of all? The College-Industrial Complex.

Question for the victor:
How far do you push

For President Obama, now comes a second chance. An electorate that considers the country to be on the wrong track nonetheless agreed to renew his contract in hopes that the next four years will be better than the last. A weary but triumphant president took the stage in Chicago early Wednesday morning before a jubilant crowd, clearly relieved to have survived a challenge that threatened to end his storybook political career. While he was speaking of America, he could have been talking about himself when he told the audience: “We have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back.”

Chris Christie says he didn't snub Mitt

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed the “know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers” who in a Huffington Post story on Monday accused him of snubbing Mitt Romney by skipping Sunday’s rally in Pennsylvania. Christie, a vocal backer of Romney, said during a press conference that he told the Republican presidential nominee before Hurricane Sandy hit that he would likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign. “I said to him, ‘Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it’s going to, I’m off the campaign trail from here to Election Day,’ ” Christie recalled.

Bachmann appears
poised to win re-election

GOP firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared to be squeaking out a victory over DFL businessman Jim Graves in a race that is so close it could be heading for a recount. Early Wednesday, the Associated Press called the race for Bachmann, after she led by slightly more than 1 percentage point with 98 percent of the precincts reporting. That margin would put the race outside the range for an automatic recount, but Graves could still seek and pay for one. "It looks very much like it'll be a recount," Graves told supporters in St. Cloud early Wednesday, hours before Bachmann's lead widened from

As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing here as well, with President Obama holding a 3-point lead and Republican Mitt Romney making gains in the state. The poll shows Obama with support from 47 percent of likely voters and Romney earning backing from 44 percent -- a lead within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Last month, Obama had an 8-percentage point advantage in the Minnesota Poll. Romney has apparently cut into the Democrat's advantage among women since then

TO OAKLAND University, Michigan (home of the Grizzlies), for a rally tonight starring Paul Ryan, the Republican vice-presidential nominee. There is a certain eccentricity to a Ryan rally, some of it carefully crafted, some of it spontaneous. The crafted stuff includes Mr Ryan's MidWestern-guy talk of hunting and football, and the exceedingly loud blast of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" to which he enters the room.

The Most Un-American Speech
Barack Obama Has Ever Delivered

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Washington - The company leading the legal challenge against birth control coverage under the new health care law offers its workers a retirement plan that includes investments in companies making contraceptive and abortion drugs. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has a 401(k) plan featuring several mutual funds investing in pharmaceutical firms that produce intrauterine birth control devices, emergency contraceptive pills and drugs used in abortion procedures, according to Labor Department documents and a review of fund portfolios.
