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.

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

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
