Chris Christie lashes out at
'know-nothing disgruntled Romney
staffers' who criticised him for
refusing to attend campaign rally
with Mitt after Hurricane Sandy

Daily Mail (UK), by Hugo Gye

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 11/8/2012 5:20:57 AM

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!

One of the themes yesterday was how the next four years we on the Right get to say "I told you so"......

Well, for four years I have SCREAMED about Christie NOT being a conservative, nor even the best man for the job in NJ, or even promulgating legislation that will work. I WAS SHOUTED DOWN.

I told you so.

Eh, it doesn't feel good. I'd rather have my Country back.

Please remember CC"S perfidy when the next Perfect Republican comes along.

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.

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!

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.

Notice how Christie goes right to the Sal Alinsky liberal playbook and engages in name calling. But don't worry the "conservative" Ann Coulter excused him because he was bringing home the bacon.

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.

Perhaps...but don't bet on it!

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'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.

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.

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.

Christie's this year's Charlie Crist.

Christie's shown quite a streak of ingratitude for the support the GOP provided him. When the GOP needed him he helped himself.

He may as well go full-on traitor.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize. So much so, he seems willing to continually force the state of Israel into untenable positions that put its security at risk. On this very topic last month, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon said Kerry "came here very determined and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and Messianic feeling . . . "Throughout the recent months, there is no negotiation between us and the Palestinians, but rather between us and the Americans. The only thing that can ´save´ us is that John Kerry will

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million. It´s the largest fair lending deal against the auto industry and the third-largest ever to resolve charges of lending discrimination. Throw in four new mortgage-lender settlements over equally

Misregulation: The president´s new consumer credit czar is doing a victory lap in the media over new mortgage rules, which go into effect this week. He claims they´ll stop another crisis. What a screaming joke. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray chirped during an interview on the "Daily Show With Jon Stewart" that the new rules are a "big change from the status quo" and will take mortgage banking back to the days of prudent lending. (Snip) Despite all the hype of tightening underwriting, CFPB´s celebrated new mortgage rules in fact require no minimum down payment or credit score

Mel Watt hadn’t even been sworn in as the head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency when at 9 p.m. on the Friday before Christmas he e-mailed reporters from his personal account saying he would put on hold planned increases in fees Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) charge for insuring mortgage securities. With a three-sentence message, he signaled a break from his predecessor and hinted at how he’ll shape the future of the two firms that guarantee about 60 percent of new U.S. mortgages. (Snip)Watt “is really a bit of an enigma,” says Mortgage Bankers Association President David

Americans who are buying insurance plans over online exchanges, under what is known as Obamacare, will have limited access to some of the nation’s leading hospitals, including two world-renowned cancer centres. Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
