Dear Conservatives: Democrats
Are Not Scared Of Rand, But
They’re Terrified Of Christie

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/1/2013 9:48:10 PM

The thoroughly entertaining back and forth that erupted this week between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has captured the media’s attention and focused the political mind on 2016 like nothing has since the night President Barack Obama won reelection. It is hard not to view the two GOP officeholders’ heated war of words in the media through the prism of the Republican presidential primaries. Many conservatives have become so disillusioned with Christie, though, that they recoil at the thought of nominating him to be the party’s next presidential nominee.

Comments:
Oh puhleeze. Leftists love to manipulate the Republicans by putting out drivel like this. They aren´t "terrified" of Christie. They love him because he is more like them. Rush made an interesting comment the other day that Christie would run in 2016 as a Democrat.

I am so thrilled that the Democrats are so considerate as to advise us as to our best candidates.

Looks like the Dems desperately want us to nominate another turbo-RINO to run against their beloved Hitlery.

I don´t think so. I think the dems see Christie as one of their own - wearing republican clothing. They´re delighted with Christie.

My support goes to Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

The media would have nothing to write about if they were truthful about the US two-party system. The name of the party matters much less than the ideology of an alleged candidate. The media is very invested in helping the establishment GOP stay viable since they´re really the same thing as the democrats.

Bull. Christie, like McCain, is an acceptable second choice for the Democrats. Now a man like Rand Paul, who would bring government down to size, terrifies them, so they ask please not to be thrown in the Christie briar patch.

Think about it: Chris Christie wins in New Jersey, one of the most liberal states in the land we once recognized as the US.

#8 ~ getting tired of celebrity faux conservatives who we quickly discover are working for the National Chamber of Commerce, or the DNC, or for a guy who owns a bunch of casinos.

Just flashed on an article that says Sheldon is back and he´s checking the stock ~ as we know his eye for political talent went blind in 2012 when he bought up Romney´s options.

Maybe Shedon should stay out of this one. After all, he grew up so immersed in Democrat nonsense he has no idea what a coherent Conservative point of view is about.

I dunno, I like Christie. I think he´s about as conservative as it´s possible to be yet get elected in Jersey. I like the way he speaks his mind like no other Republican elected official. I like the way he stared down the Jersey teachers. I like the way he´s told the truth about public sector unions and their pensions.

But no, I won´t vote for him as a national candidate. His New Jersey, anti-gun point of view is a deal breaker for me.

Dems were scared of Dole/McCain/Romney and now Christie? Glad we see how the script will go from the Journalisters. And, I might add the script the Establishment Republicans will follow as per always.
Too bad Republicans have the loserville complex. I am verging on believing Republicans do not want to win the White House. It is possible, you know. There may be more perks and money in losing. Not that the country is better off but then the Republican party is run by those who care less about the country..as long as they get theirs.
I believe Romney did indeed care about the country. His problems were in other areas. I voted for him. But will not vote for Christie. Romney is my last Republican moderate/liberal I will ever vote for.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

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

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

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
