Chris Christie has been under fire from Republican insiders ever since he he performed a U-turn and started praising Barack Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy last week. And now the governor of New Jersey has lashed out at anonymous aides to Mitt Romney who have criticised him for refusing to attend fundraising events for the GOP presidential candidate. The outspoken figure, a strong supporter of Romney over the past year, described his critics as 'know-nothing, disgruntled Romney supporters' who did not respect the duty he owed to the people of his state.
Comments: I will never, under any circumstance, cast a vote for Chris Christie.
I don't want Christie or Rubio. The only person I have faith in right now is Jindal and I pray he's our next nominee.
It's funny how McCain got more votes than Romney and I'll bet it was because of Palin. Yet she was snubbed by the establishment and not allowed to speak at the convention.
The Ryan VP pick bought absolutely nothing to the ticket.He doubled down on Romney's supposed strength and scared people into thinking there was going to be massive spending cuts along with SS and Medicare being rewritten.
I said back in 2010 when Angle was running and making privatization of SS her main issue,was a huge mistake. Republicans are fools to keep bringing up entitlement reform when it only means old people's programs., If entitlements are the issue,make it welfare and getting rid of this stupid birthright thing that enables the mom to loot the system.
Leave effin old people out of the conversation.These people are self funded with the payroll tax.People working 3 months a year and getting 5 grand back on earned income is stupid and opens the door to fraud like crazy.Working single women use a welfare recipients kids SS numbers to steal earned income money and of course an Obama led government couldn't care less.
Christie is a social liberal who became a temporary rising UTube star in the Republican party mainly because he was cleverly snarky with the teachers union in NJ. This election was more important than the 'people of New Jersey' and far more important than Christie's re-election prospects.
Wonder if the machines in the battleground states were already stacked or messed with before the doors were opened on election day or maybe many fraudulent absentee votes were added to the tally in all these states? We know how down and dirty Chicago is and we know Axelrod was adament that he would NOT have to shave his mustache off. Why were the two most respected pollster, Gallup and Rasmussen, wrong on election day? They have never been wrong in the last several presential elections, especially Rasmussen? Why was it such a shock when none of the Repubs candidates won in any of these states except two who were far ahead, and it would look suspicious if they did not win? I truly believe, and I don't know how, but the election was stolen. Remember those pollster in PA who kicked out the Repub pollster judge for a couple of hours or more in the am before voting until a judge ordered them back in? What were they doing those hours without supervision? Ulstermann mentioned something about this and showed all the data and could not believe with all the different categories going for Romney that he lost, he believes that some Repubs had to be involved, but I do not believe that, it was the CHICAGO MAFIA, I truly believe! Sure, it's a cliche "the election was stolen", but WONDER IF THIS TIME IT WERE TRUE? Just saying!
OH don't worry about Christie being the presidential nominee next time because he will simply be the VP pick to get the NE vote. NO our brilliant Republican leaders will choose Jeb Bush and force him on us! Why? Because he has inroads in the Hispanic community and the right views on immigration, he was governor of Florida with one of the largest Hispanic populations, and well his father and brother were president soooo it will then be his turn. So just relax and let the Republican Establishment take us down the same road election after election.
You can keep carrying CC's water #14,but the fact is, CBS exit polling had Sandy response as Important to Very Important to almost HALF the respondents. If we only kept the %15respondents who said Important THE COUNTRY WOULD NOT BE IN PERIL. CC is now and always has been a traitor to the Party and the Country.
Wow! Another ugly, post-election realization--Christie is a closet democrat!
While I am posting here--since I don't see anywhere else to voice my observation (without The Connection): There is something terribly wrong with all the outcomes of the major battles. I don't believe in coincidences on this scale. I also do not believe 'they' out-number 'us' yet!
...come on folks,Christie didn't have a thing to do with Mitts defeat ....if you think so..then we really are out if touch with the populace ...93%blacks..70%latinos..women.....no the right has some soul searching...white folk percentage is down to 72%..... its not rocket science . ..Christie is in the middle of a $***storm..now snow....wake up my friends......
What's up with RINO governors who have the initials C.C.? Charlie Crist man-hugged zippy when Florida received some stimulus money and now he's doing ambulance chaser commercials for Morgan and Morgan.
Dittos to #9. This election result just didn't make sense in so many ways. Remember, Obama came out of ACORN, whose whole purpose is to steal votes. Obama had full 1000% from unions, another organization who has a long history of stealing elections. Holder made sure there were no photo requirements for voting, which fight vote fraud. Hopefully someone will be digging into and analyzing the results. Yes, it's hard to imagine 3-4 million stolen votes. No, it's not impossible, but if it happened, there will be a trail, if someone is seriously looking for it.
The Mrs. and I took a trip to the East coast awhile back and happened to engage a local New Jerseyite in a conversation about taxes and politics. She told us not to be fooled by Christie and his rhetoric, because he's not all he presents himself to be.
I'm seeing him to be less substance and more self-aggrandizing blowhard these days. BTW, anyone who sheds a tear over a phone call from Bruce Springsteen is a pathetic loser.
It was obvious to me Christie had been told what to do and how to do it. He looked like a whipped dog during O's visit. Obama and his people are scary dudes. They didn't get where they are by being squeamish about threats and such.
Governor, I believe that if you have any presidential plans, You're going to need those "Know nothing disgruntled Romney staffers" in 2016. They are not the enemy, the democrat candidate, whoever she will be, is!
So for your own sake, tone down the unnecessary rhetoric against your party.
Gov. Christie is getting a lot, a lot of flak and hate directed towards him. He is a large target due to his embrace of Obama. Many think he was used by our kenyan guy. Sweet words were sung into his ears by Mr. Asbury Park Springsteen, an august sage who will always see the truth, right?
Reminds me of Hanoi Jane sitting on that gun mount, or Kerry saluting as he "reported for duty" but others who actually were in a war with him called him dangerous, phony and even cowardly.
Chris has joined an "elite" group of dummies only he is too stupid to realize it...for now. Perhaps with some couch time, a shrink might be able to penetrate his refusal to realize his "needs" as manifested by his embraces, both in food and that neo-marxist guy who let him fly in Marine I.
Next election? 0bama wins the next two easily. Yes, I said it. Why? Because eight years is simply not enough time to fix the mess he inherited. It won't be long before the left starts yammering about doing away with the two term limit on the office of the POTUS. Tuesday's result proves that there are more than enough idiots in this once great country for them to get away with it. Harry Reid should start pushing for a $30T debt ceiling right away, because that's where we'll be by the end of the won's fourth term.
I used to hink Chris Christie was presidential material. No more. Christie's speech at the convention was bad. He showed really poor judgement in endorsing 0bama for his own self interest. Christie in my book is toast. Christie has no future.
I'm with # 9. 0 knew that the election day totals would be "fixed" in his favor, maybe by numerous ways. That's why he wasn't concerned in the first debate. He knew the election was going to be his regardless. The better performance in the next two was only window dressing because they hadn't anticipated the public noticing.
#35 said it for me. We are headed for a one party one leader future. Obama has successfully thumbed his nose at the Constitution and there was not a peep from GOP leadership. He will get to appoint at least two more SC justices, who will OK a "Living Constitution" and the two term limit will disappear. I am sick.
He sold the country down the river to preserve his cushy job. And to think that I thought he should have been on the ticket! im not wrong often but wow what was i thinking. Let's get some electoral "revenge" of our own and primary Oblahma's NJ cuddle pig.
What #21 said... Watching C.C. told me everything I needed to know about him at the Convention when he did his best impression of obama with his I, I, I, me, me, me, self-indulgent-bragging-"key-note" address, and grudgingly mentioned Mitt Romney the CANDIDATE, at the end of his self-promotional-speech. Hope he takes his 30 pieces of silver and leaves us alone.
Funny, I don't recall any Romney enthusiasts expressing concerns about Christie when he was campaigning for Romney in the spring, or when he was being floated as a possible vice presidential candidate.
When you reach the point where you are openly disingenuous about the things you yourself said, perhaps you should pack up your mirror and look out the window at the real world.
Konstantin Kakaes had a lot of good evidence to work with for his article debunking the promise of Amazon’s drone deliveries. The FAA doesn’t allow autonomous flight. Drones are too small and unreliable. They’ll cost Amazon a fortune to maintain and oversee. Kakaes had so many facts in his favor, but he left out a big one: Birds are going to hate these drones.(Snip)The difference for Amazon’s drones is that the birds will be chasing them. Unseen to us, the skies are checkered with fiercely defended bird territories. Open-country raptors—hawks, eagles, kites, harriers, etc.—don’t take kindly to interlopers on their
In a major rant at radio host Sway Calloway this week Kanye West went full tilt against the fashion establishment that is preventing him from unleashing his artistry-in-apparel on the world: “I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now, who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me til I’m out of my moment?” Dear Kanye Warhol-Shakespeare-Disney-Google-West, So you want to be a fashion designer! You actually did launch a
PHILADELPHIA--A horse pulling a buggy with an Amish family aboard in rural Pennsylvania was struck by a bullet fired from a moving car and later died, police said on Tuesday.(Snip)"At the time, they believed it was a firecracker," Weaver said. "They didn´t realize it was a gunshot." The family continued home, where they realized the animal had been injured. "When they got to the farm, the farmer noticed blood from the horse´s mouth," Weaver said. The horse died before a veterinarian arrived.
The Treasury Department said on Thursday that it would sell its remaining shares in General Motors by year’s end, allowing the government to finally sever ties to the bailed-out automaker a few months sooner than expected.(Snip)Barring a sudden jump in G.M.’s stock price, the government is on track to lose about $10 billion on its investment. So far, it has recovered about $38.4 billion. By contrast, other rescue efforts, including the bailout of the American International Group, have generated profits for taxpayers. But administration officials have long argued that the aim was not to make a profit from its investments
WASHINGTON — A mutiny has erupted among photographers who cover President Obama over what they say is the White House’s increasing practice of excluding them from events involving the president and then releasing its own photos or video.(Snip)“As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens,” the three-page letter said, “officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the executive branch of government.” The Obama administration has embraced social media as a way to get its message to the public beyond the traditional news media.
Secretary of State John Kerry just scrapped 190 years of U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, casually declaring the Monroe Doctrine is over.Why didn´t he just ring the dinner triangle for Russia, China, Iran and their terrorist catspaws to set up shop, too? "President James Monroe," Kerry told the Organization of American States in Washington Monday, "declared that the United States would unilaterally, and as a matter of fact, act as the protector of the region... And throughout our nation´s history, successive presidents have reinforced that doctrine and made a similar choice. "Today, however, we have made a different choice. The
After allegations were made about the legitimacy of the author´s account of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya last September, Simon & Schuster has halted publication and sale of The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Solider Who Was There, by Sgt. Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis. "In light of information that has been brought to our attention since the initial publication of The Embassy House, we have withdrawn from publication and sale all formats of this book, and are recommending that booksellers do the same," said Jennifer Robinson,
AVANNAH, Ga. — The uninsured pour into Memorial Health hospital here: the waitress with cancer in her voice box who for two years assumed she just had a sore throat. (Snip) Now, in a perverse twist, many of the poor people who rely on safety-net hospitals like Memorial will be doubly unlucky. A government subsidy, little known outside health policy circles but critical to the hospitals’ survival, is being sharply reduced under the new health law. The subsidy, which for years has helped defray the cost of uncompensated and undercompensated care, was cut substantially on the assumption that the hospitals
The Affordable Care Act’s website debut has been compared to the Titanic disaster. The analogy is fair, in that the ship’s captain demonstrated an inexplicable lack of interest in and respect for the risks presented by the iceberg-infested waters through which his vessel was sailing. (Snip) As many parallels as there are between the fateful maiden voyage of the Titanic and the launch of Healthcare.gov, however, there is another colossal technological disaster that may be even more apt: the catastrophic 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger just 73 seconds after liftoff. Exhaustive postaccident analyses revealed that the immediate cause
Insurers say the early buyers of health coverage on the nation´s troubled new websites are older than expected so far, raising early concerns about the economics of the insurance marketplaces. If the trend continues, an older, more expensive set of customers could drive up prices for everyone, the insurers say, by forcing them to spread their costs around. "We need a broad range of people to make this work, and we´re not seeing that right now," said Heather Thiltgen of Medical Mutual of Ohio, the state´s largest insurer by individual customers. "We´re seeing the population skewing older."(Snip)The average enrollee age
Here’s the latest leading theory about those mystery barges in Portland and San Fransisco: They’re party boats for launching Google Glass, the Internet giant’s computerized eyewear.The barges, and the odd-looking structures on top of them, have been linked to Google in documents from the Coast Guard in New London, Conn., and in an apparent slip-of-the-tongue by a Coast Guard official in California.(Snip)But new evidence indicates the barges will be towed to large coastal cities, where wealthy customers will be invited aboard for exclusive looks at Google Glass. The wearable computer, still under development, would enable people to communicate with the
The four-story structure that has been docked in Portland Harbor since Oct. 10 is connected in some way to Google, according to Coast Guard documents obtained by a Connecticut newspaper through a Freedom of Information Act request. (Snip)The purpose of the structure and the barge it rests on is not described in the documents, which do reveal a plan to operate the vessel in various ports, the first being New York Harbor. Tugboats from Portland towed the barge from New London, arriving Oct. 10 at Rickers Wharf on Portland’s waterfront, a facility owned and operated by Cianbro.Cianbro’s Chief Executive Officer
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
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
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
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
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. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
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
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
