Christie, Establishment Darling
National Review Online, by Robert Costa

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/20/2013 7:02:53 AM

Governor Chris Christie’s darkest moment, at least in the eyes of some members of the Republican establishment, came on a chilly Sunday night in early November of last year, just days before the presidential election. What Christie and his team did that evening, in a series of terse e-mails and calls with the pleading Romney camp, remains murky. On Capitol Hill, insiders still treat the episode like the Zapruder film, analyzing it and trying to discern, from limited context, what exactly happened. But what didn’t happen is indisputable: Christie didn’t attend Mitt Romney’s rally at Shady Brook Farm in Lower Makefield,

Christi´s ego is about the size of his waist measurement. Best he plan to stay as governor is he is re-elected.

I think the Tea Partiers might have something to say, about our nominee, this time around. They were not to be found when Romney was running. I´m hoping we have a CONSERVATIVE nominee this time and then the Conservative Base will come out in droves. I´m sick and tired of the Washington Establishment running things. ALL of the names mentioned in this article are in that group! Christie will Be Obama Light! And, for the record, he knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he refused to back Romney right before the election. He didn´t want Romney to win because he knew he was going to run in 2016 and he didn´t want Romney to be in the way! Says a lot about the character of the man!

Most in the GOP base feel 2016 is the watershed election. That it is time to fish or cut bait. We have settled for a mushy candidate for the last time. I have never gone along with staying home on Election Day before but if Christy winds up with the nomination then I will on 2016. I refuse to be a part of the national destruction to prop up another RINO.

GOP, take note.

Ok, I´ll bite, #8. What scenario would have led to a different, and by your implication, winning nominee in either of the last two elections. Assume the primaries retained their positions.

It is my opinion that there weren´t stronger candidates in 2012, at least, but that is just my own thought.

If the ticket had been flipped and Palin had been supported and let loose to be herself, it´s just possible she would have won in 2008. We need someone who speaks plainly and never, ever apologizes or sides with the Democrats. McCain, Romney and Christie all specialize in supporting Democrats in the worst possible way for Republicans - it´s not an accident.

It isn´t just cuddling up with Obama after Sandy. It´s refusing to appoint a Republican Senator to serve out Lautenburg´s term and calling for a special election at a cost of 24 million so he wouldn´t have to contend with the Booker supporters.

It´s Chiesa´s vote for immigration reform immediately after he got there.

I am not voting for Christie for Governor as a result and will not vote for him in the general election in 2016. I´m tired of the Establishment pulling their puppet strings and not giving a damn about the hard working Americans in this country.

My knees display scar tissue from crawling on glass to cast votes for RINO elitist. Not any more. I voted for Romney with a good heart and the ticket would have certainly helped the country compared to what we have now.
A watershed election is right but if it´s not Ted Cruz I´m not getting out of my recliner on election day. Christie the rotund buffet destroyer will make me stay home. He´ll have to win without my vote.

I drove my elderly parents 2 hours through Sandy destruction (during a gas shortage) so they could vote for Romney in 2012. We were rewarded with a candidate who wouldn´t even challenge the election for voter fraud. If you want to stay on the RINO wagon, feel free. Not me.

Didn´t vote for Chistine Todd Whitman when she rean for reelection. Right now, I won´t be voting for Christie for reelection, either. Maybe he´ll win over enough Democrats, like Whitman did, to win anyway, but I´m not helping. I´ll probably vote Libertarian. May even vote for the Democrat if he´s moderate enough and Christie keeps spitting in the face of conservatives.

The rock solid blue No. East is and has always been controlled by R progressives and hard left D´s since Taft and Wilson in´12; while the GOP fulcrum has shifted to the South and West heartland. Three of the last 17 R nominees were conservatives; the rest being assorted buffoons and incompetents. Now the DC Est. wants lard butt Christie, a Clifford Case R. Tell me again why we don´t need a second (not third) party?

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment. Gone are the days when GOP leaders would defend valiantly the principles of limited government, the rule of law, and the rights and duties of individual

   

 



 
What the GOP Does

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Putin Endangering Russia´s Oil Supply

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

House Speaker John A. Boehner, who has tangled repeatedly with the right wing of the Republican Party, has not been invited to this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, a major snub at the annual gathering and a sign of the top Republican officeholder’s struggle to find common ground with grass-roots activists. People familiar with CPAC’s planning, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the American Conservative Union, which hosts the event, never sent an invitation to Mr. Boehner, in part because it wanted the focus this year to be on leading conservative thinkers at the grass-roots level and not

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
