Honest: Would You Rather Win with
Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?

Jewish World Review, by Bernard Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/12/2013 9:26:27 PM

Those sophisticates at Time magazine made a funny. They put Chris Christie on their cover with the headline, "The Elephant in the Room." Get it? Elephant. Christie. Time magazine did a junior high fat joke right there on its cover. Time´s executive editor Michael Duffy explained the cheap shot this way: "Well, he´s obviously a big guy. He´s obviously a big Republican. But he´s also done a really huge thing here this week." The "huge thing" wasn´t only winning re-election as New Jersey´s governor, but doing it by appealing to a broad range of voters in a very blue state

Comments:
Hahahaha!! Actually the RepublicRats would LOSE with Christie Crème. Hands Down!!

Cadet Prayer - West Point, NY
?
O God, our Father, Thou Searcher of human hearts, help us to draw near to Thee in sincerity and truth. May our religion be filled with gladness and may our worship of Thee be natural.

Strengthen and increase our admiration for honest dealing and clean thinking, and suffer not our hatred of hypocrisy and pretence ever to diminish. Encourage us in our endeavor to LIVE ABOVE THE COMMON LEVEL OF LIFE. Make us to CHOOSE THE HARDER RIGHT INSTEAD OF THE EASIER WRONG, and NEVER BE CONTENT WITH A HALF TRUTH WHEN THE WHOLE CAN BE WON. ENDOW US WITH COURAGE THAT IS BORN OF LOYALTY TO ALL THAT IS NOBELE AND WORTHY, that SCORNS TO COMPROMISE WITH VICE AND INJUSTICE and KNOWS NO FEAR When truth and right are in jeopardy. Guard us against flippancy and irreverence in the sacred things of life. Grant us new ties of friendship and new opportunities of service. Kindle our hearts in fellowship with those of a cheerful countenance, and soften our hearts with sympathy for those who sorrow and suffer. Help us to maintain the honor of the Corps untarnished and unsullied and to show forth in our lives the ideals of West Point in DOING OUR DUTY TO THEE AND TO OUR COUNTRY. All of which we ask in the name of the Great Friend and Master of all.

Amen

Disagree, poster. I want to win! I respectfully (and I genuinely mean that) ask that you consider how hard it is for a Republican to survive up here in one of these blue states. You are literally in the Alamo.

I would vote for Cruz in a heartbeat, but please respect the hand-to-hand combat that Christie and others up here have to engage in on a daily basis just to survive. If Christie wins our nomination, I vote for him in a heartbeat. If Cruz wins our nomination, I vote for him in a heartbeat. We have to get this awful crowd out of Presidency.

Winning has nothing to do with getting an "R" label in the Whitehouse. It only matters if there is a commitment to restore the rule of law, limited government and the constitution and to undo the damage done by those with both "R" and "D" labels. I will vote for a Patriot if afforded the opportunity. Will Hillary be used as the sword of Damocles to force us to defer restoring our government for 4 years by voting for a "moderate" march to socialism? Hope nobody expects me to be pleased with that. Oops who cares what was I thinking.

Bernie keeps focusing on the campaign attributes of a candidate. Leadership is what is needed...and that requires guts and principles--not some hack that is bent on popularity and nothing else.

Christie is all bark, 24/7

Maybe old Bernard could give some of his leftist buddies in the media a call and tell them to quit bashing Cruz all the time. He himself did complain about that in Bias. If Cruz received all the good press Christie does it would be a whole different story. He also doesn´t get criticized by his own party. I would take an honorable, God fearing, Constitution loving man like Cruz any day over Christie. We are always told that a conservative can´t win. How do we know when the only candidates we choose are "moderate?" Everyone seems to forget that Reagan went through the same thing.

Ridiculous false choice. Given the recent history it seems more likely that Christie would lose and Cruz would win. Recent poll in fact reflects that Hillary would handily win over Christie. History shows us that moderates lose, but with a real conservative who displays principled leadership, victory occurs with historic margins, i.e., Ronald Reagan! Why are the establishment types so afraid of winning?

#2 said it for me. No more rinos, ever! I would rather have Cruz to vote for even if he lost.
At least I would finally be getting a candidate that I wanted to vote for, instead of a rino shoved in all of our faces, over all our objections.

And lets fix the primary system too. No more democrats voting in republican primaries, choosing our candidates.

If Christie in the GOP nominee, I´ll skip that portion of the ballot. If Cruz is the GOP nominee, he´ll get my vote. I´m no longer a Republican, but a Constitutional Conservative, and I will no longer vote a straight party line. No more holding my nose and voting for GOP RINOs to win an election.

Given the choice, it´s a no brainer for me...Cruz hands down. But if fate were to give us Christie against the PIAPS, again it would be a no brainer, although should this occur, and should the NJ Gov win, he´d infuriate most of us I´m sure. However anybody but Monica´s ex-boyfriend´s wife would just have to do.

Perhaps Romney lost the last election because 3 million less voted for him than for McCain. Were they folks who just couldn’t vote for a moderate? It certainly has us in a fine mess now. I will vote for anyone with the (R) after his name. And those that won’t, I wish you would just form your own party and take your own chances with your own candidate.

Are we going to have another candidate who can´t even carry his own state? How will Christie play in Ohio or Missouri? Who and how many will volunteer to work for Christie?
The Republican base will vote for Christie, but not with any enthusiasm. And Christie will probably get about the same number of votes that Romney did.

Christie couldn´t pass Romney´s vetting. You can bet that Cruz has had oppo research from all sides so far. He must be clean as a whistle.

In any case, Cruz will make a much better candidate because people will recognize him as the man who tried to stop Obamacare, not the guy who slobbered all over Obama for a few Hurricane Bucks.

Bernie plays the same song and same argument that was used to drum up support for McCain and Romney. When will we begin to start judging and evaluating candidates on what they have done and not on what pundits say they will do?

It is very interesting that the Republican Leadership, Republican leaning media and supposed Republican commentators have resorted to calling everyone who doesn´t agree with them as Far Right and/or Tea Partier. In nearly every context it is used as a pejorative term/label. In effect, it is a bit like staying in a relationship where one person constantly abuses the other.

Christie, Cruz, or Clinton it doesn´t really matter. NO one person is going to save America from her dizzying descent downwards. We are suppose to be a NATION of people that rule themselves and NOT a herd of sheep that is herded by a few. Unfortunately, we have proven ourselves the latter; waiting for the brave heroic sheepdog to save us from the ravine and wolves only to be sheared and slaughtered.

BUT lets continue to play the "new" preschool game, my candidate can beat your candidate.

We had this choice before and we "won" with McCain and Romney. Enough of these winners picked by RINO´s so we still loose even if we win. Cruz is a loser in the same way Reagan was proclaimed a loser by the same crowd! You always loose when you don´t fight. Right now they won´t fight anything in the Obama disaster because they have been in Washington too long and cannot see reality as do people from outside Washington. The GOP base craves leadership and get kicked in the teeth by the establishment.

It was McCain´s V-P who attracted the votes. If not for Gov. Palin it would have been a slam-dunk total landslide for the one NO one person knew anything about. McCain would have been a Real embarrassment with a different V-P pick.

I did vote for him because he is a good man but so sadly not a fighter and not principled enough to know why he should be one.

What´s the difference if a RINO who doesn´t share your values wins or a Democrat who doesn´t share your values wins? They´ll both govern the same, and appoint the same sort of justices to the courts. If a loss is in the cards, I´d rather stand with Ted Cruz over Chrissie Christie, since I think Ted would win and eloquently express what conservatism is.

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

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

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Could the 2016 presidential election turn into a contest between a Bush and a Clinton? Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination. For a nation that fought a war for independence from the hereditary power of the British Crown, in the person of another fellow named George, the concept of nominating a third Bush to run for the White House against a second Clinton (the former

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Senator urges hearing

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
