Chris Christie Slams ‘Reprehensible’
NRA For ‘Dragging People’s Children’
Into Gun Control Debate

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/17/2013 9:23:21 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed the National Rifle Association’s latest ad in which they accuse President Barack Obama of hypocrisy for sending his children to a school where they are protected by armed guards. Christie called the ad “reprehensible” and said that the NRA should not be “dragging people’s children” into the gun control debate. (Snip) "I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” Christie said on Thursday at a news conference in Trenton. “I’m a father who is a public figure, who has

Comments:
The whole point of that NRA ad was to state that all children deserved protection, not just the elitist 0bama. Christie should be smart enough to figure that out. I must have missed the part where he said it was reprehensible for 0bama to drag children onto the stage yesterday. s/o I´m so tired of Republicans behaving like this. I hate to give them credit, but Democrats do stick together, no matter what.

Christie is turning out to be a "headline hunter." Hopefully he will wake up.

Obama is the one who keeps dragging other people´s kids into the argument!!! Geez! Obama is exploiting the children. Christie has turned out to be a big FAT traitor and total disappointment. Why doesn´t he go join Crist and Specter and become a Demonrat??

Ah, the moderate quisling Chris Christie desperately tries to do more of the Democrats dirty work for them. The Democrats were the first to invoke dead children in their cause. We all know this. I have enjoyed watching this darling of the republican moderates go down in flames.

No. What´s reprehensible(other than you Christie) is someone surrounding themselves with children while announcing "executive actions", purely for political optics. If hussein could have gotten away with it, he would have postponed the funerals of the 20 kids and surrounded himself with their bodies.

The media and the dems have no answer to Obama and other elites, getting special treatment for their children, so their only answer is to "kill the messenger." For the record, I think that a president´s children should have secret service protection. But don´t try to manipulate us into thinking that armed protection is not appropriate for the average neighborhood school.

Think about Christie and his ilk like this. When a person is diseased and has big scabs on their body, ripping one open suddenly makes them bellow senselessly. He caused the wound and blames US for trying to clear it up. [[Oh, and 0bama don´t "care" about the causalities he creates around him].

Didn´t this whole debate start because of children ?

Why would the first children be any better than any American child ? Ask the parents in Newtown how precious their babies were to them.

I notice Zippy and the Wookie choose children by color for their photo opps.
For sympathy they pick white kids. If they go to a school, it´s black kids.

If Christie is the R nominiee for 2016, any Democrat including, but not limited to Hillary, Michelle Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd (Sp?), Matt Damon, Eva Longoria, Justin Bieber (from Canada), Spike Lee or any other alive or dead Democrat will win.

He is completely disgusting not just physically but mentally. The "Garden State" should be renamed the "The Toxic Dump Site." (at least that is how the State smells).

I think the NRA blew the ad by bringing in the secret service since I always understood that the Sidwell Friends School was patrolled by armed guards before the Obama spawn started there. That information would be more to the point than the protection of just the president´s kids by the secret service. That is expected and necessary.

Last night maybe the night before the Fox all-stars unanimously condemned the NRA ad. That included Dr. K. and the usually reliable Steven Hayes. These are smart guys. Why can´t they and other conservatives see the point of the NRA ad? They let the left get away with changing the subject to Secret Service protection for the President´s children, which no one disagreees with. On topic the school where obama´s children and david gregory´s children attend employs 11 going on 12 armed guards, separate and in addition to the SS. The NRA cited obama´s obvious hypocrisy when he rejected a suggestion to post armed guarda in public schools and even conservatives attack them.

The stock in Chris Christie has plummeted. I don´t like the way he smooshed with Obama during the hurricane, and I don´t like how he´s so willing to back pork laden bills out of Congress, and I don´t like the way he is so one sided on the gun propaganda. Certainly, the NRA, which I am a lifetime member, was unwise to make such a melodramatic presntation as this recent offering. And I wish the NRA would hire some professional consultants before they put their foot in their mouth, but the fact remains that politicians, as well as members of the press, send their kids to schools protected by gun toting guards.

Yes?

What´s reprehensible about pointing that out, and why your children aren´t afforded a similar protection.

It will indeed be interesting if Coulter continues to support Christi despite his Republican-bashing of late.

I liked Christie at one point, despite some questionable opinions. Now, he is poison to me. Schmoozing with Obama and Republican- basing have taken the shine off his prospects.

I know he likes to tell it like it is, that he is gruff, that he can be in your face; what I´ve recently come to realize is that his ego, like himself, is outsized. One thing I liked about Romney is that he is by all accounts a modest man who had trouble blowing his own horn during the campaign.

Christie has become a self-promoter; I no longer like him or trust him; he has blown his chance for the 2016 nomination with conservatives like me.

The lib and rino meme that conservatives are dumb is exposed in their response to the NRA ad. They are unable to comprehend satire.

We are looking at really stupid people (dems and Christie) or people who care more about looking sympathetic than speaking the truth (Fox All Stars).

These Republican politicians, including Christie, and pundits could not be as dim as they seem. Or, could they?

Predictably, they bought the feint - hook, line, and sinker. It is simply absurd to take the NRA ad as an attack on Obama´s kids. It is nothing of the sort. No disparaging words were directed at the kids. They were not slighted, demeaned, or even mentioned by name. But, Carney came out snd accused - and they immediately accepted his premise.

What buffoons! what maroons! What nitwits!

Barack Obama is dragging people´s children into the debate.

Barack Obama is also personally responsible for deliberately selling weapons to the world´s most violent drug gangs. Thanks to Obama, more than three-hundred Mexican citizens are dead, as well as three American law enforcement officers.

Maybe Chris Christie should just shove another deep-dish pizza in his fat face, and shut the hell up for a change.

Yes, he is a hippo...a hippo-crite!! But seriously, I think Christie shoots his mouth off first and thinks later. He has a short attention span just like the demonrats. At any rate, if anyone truly has a problem with the ad (aside from political differences), then you probably don´t understand the point nor have you seen how Zero and the Dems have shamelessly used people´s children to manipulate the public opinion. That wasn´t what the NRA did, however. They were simply making the point that ALL children deserve to be safe--not just the children of the elite.

People on the left can say over the top shocking things all they want ad get away with it.

The NRA has said 2 things since the shooting. Security guards at schools and why are Obama´s kids more valuable than others.

Regardless of whether either of these is properly and PC tested,they´re going to hit the logic side of the brain among most people,although it might take time to sink in.

Schools are going to push for guards,cops whatever because the parents will demand it.

I know this sounds crazy but Christie trying to be a glory hog may be doing the NRA a favor by bringing more attention to what they said.People will dig into it because of the controversy and ask themselves "hey you know what my kids are as important as Obama´s".

The left is always going to go Alinsky on a detractor.The NRA is signing up thousands of new members out of simplistic thinking.

You´re never going to win the war of emotion on the left because they have no rules.You have to penetrate the logical side of people´s brains in an uncomplicated way.The NRA has hit 2 home runs on this.

I thought the First Amendment was honored here; instead, we have to endure comments such as ´´troll´´, ´´site pest´´, and the like. I always thought this was a free country and we had the right to express our opinions in a civil manner, just as we had the right to respectfully disagree.

C´mon, folks - if you don´t like someone´s opinion, use your manners; taunting and name calling are best left to the other side.

Fox News Sunday was the only Sunday show that discussed the latest revelations in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. As a result, viewers were treated to host Chris Wallace grilling Congressman Sander Levin (D-MI) over why the IRS targeted 100 percent of conservative groups as opposed to only 30 percent of liberal groups. Appearing on Sunday April 13, Wallace challenged Levin: “30 percent of organizations with progress or progressive in their names were examined as possible political groups. And, therefore, not included -- would not have been considered for tax exempt status. But 100 percent of groups with Tea

Seven months after being subpoenaed by Congress, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy conceded that her agency does not have - and cannot produce - all of the scientific data used for decades to justify numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act. In a March 7th letter to House Science, Space and Technology Committee chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.), McCarthy admitted that EPA cannot produce all of the original data from the 1993 Harvard Six Cities Study (HSC) and the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) 1995 Cancer Prevention Study II, which is currently housed at New York University.

"Not all of them, no, of course not," New York Rep. Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told CNN´s Candy Crowley when she asked if he believed that Republican congressmen are racist. "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism, and that´s unfortunate." Crowley asked the question because House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., did not mince words when she

Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) accused Issa of “stripping away the constitutional rights of an American” in a way that “has not

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Isikoff joined NBC News in 2010 as a Washington, DC-based investigative correspondent, after 16 years with Newsweek. The news comes three months after fellow NBC News investigative reporter Lisa Myers left the network, and just two weeks after NBC hired Cynthia McFadden away from ABC, naming her senior legal and investigative correspondent. “Michael has done terrific work for NBC News on stories ranging from revealing which government official leaked the US Stuxnet virus attack

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
