Conservatives on Chris Christie:
Diva Getting What He Deserves

National Journal, by Josh Kraushaar

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/11/2014 11:42:04 AM

Chris Christie took the first step in damage control Thursday by apologizing and announcing he was firing two of his closest aides connected to a scheme to jam up traffic on the George Washington Bridge. But despite a textbook press conference, his longer-term political problem is likely to be from his own party, where the scandal is giving a legion of under-the-radar Christie skeptics room to criticize the governor.Christie´s base has always been his New Jersey inner circle and Wall Street donors enthused over his electability and pragmatic approach to governance. By contrast, Christie never engendered deep support among Washington

Who cares. Christie is just one more excuse to write in a vote or vote for a third party.

I really don´t care about the bridge closing. I´m far more concerned about his politics and from every angle they smell like collectivism. He started out sounding pretty good, but he quickly lost the respect of real Americans.

I don´t know about Christie losing the respect of "real Americans", #3. I consider myself a real American and I could vote for him, although he wouldn´t be on my top ten list of preferences. I know I´m repeating myself, but hardly anyone outside of the Northeast gives a flip about this mini-mess.

I agree #2. Reasonable people can disagree. Unreasonable people demonize, denigrate, and slander. The democrats love what conservatives are doing.....

When did a ´´RINO´´ become worse than a democrat? Reading some posts from single-issue people certainly reinforce that idea!

#2, take a look in your own keeking glass. Your ilk are the problem. Christie is nothing but a democrat in republican clothing. We can´t win by sucking up to the libs hoping to win their votes. You want support? Help us identify a true conservative candidate, then support him to the max.

Christie spent a good part of his time blasting other republicans.

He attacked congress for trying to get the pork out of the Sandy bill, he attacks Rand Paul, and other tea party folks.

He´s all about gun control, in state tuition for illegals, gay marriage and assorted other left wing issues.

He tried to get a muslim activist onto our Court. The man finally withdrew after admitting he FORGOT he was the attorney for a so called charity that was designated a terror group.

Christie was elected because he wasn´t Corzine.

Small time political hack, IMHO.

"When did a ´´RINO´´ become worse than a democrat? Reading some posts from single-issue people certainly reinforce that idea!"

The problem exacerbated itself the years Republicans held all the government, during that time we got expanded government, medicare, education bills written by teddy kennedy, deficits as far as the eye can see etc.... Because of this the party lost the Reagan democrats and the independents, the base stayed home giving government back to the dems. RINO´s need weeded out because they (with their crony capitalism) destroy the brand in flyover country. There are many in North Georgia who agree with conservative positions but will never vote republican because it is indeed the "party of the rich".

There are plenty of examples of Christie being a bully. A few years ago, I watched a video of him getting in the face of a regular joe heckler at the boardwalk. The repulsive nature of the exchange was Christie trash talking the guy from behind his several burly state trooper body guards. Christie acts like he was the last kid picked for kickball his entire childhood.

He was amusing with his big mouth, and his in-your-face speeches were entertaining. As a conservative who desperately seeks my voice in a politician, I wanted to believe he was mine. But...
-He stiffed this Sandy survivor on a technicality, when I lost my Jersey shore house. I got no help whatsoever after paying huge taxes since 1987-
-He showed the world his man-crush on obama, which no doubt helped obama win-
-His in-state tuition bill for illegals is a slap in the face to AMERICANS-
-And now Bridgegate-which tarnishes the image of all republicans and feeds the MSM with ammo.
Goodbye Mr. Christie. I am so over you.

You cannot hide who you really are forever. The real you always manages to surface. What is telling is that his "closest aides" had no qualms about shutting down the highway. You surround yourself with like-minded people and the fact these individuals for even a moment thought this was a good idea is very telling. Another thing, why do these aides keep using email and texts to hatch their chicanery? Are they really that dim? This whole fiasco has been a disaster on every level. What it points out is that Christie is a bad judge of character if these were the kind of people he chose to surround himself with.

BTW: I´d remind the Establishment apologists here what Einstein said about insanity. Better to deal with a few more Democrat victories (which are likely to happen anyway) if that is what we must go through to save the Republic. Amnesty for the illegals, which the GOP Elites support, will surely destroy it. How about giving conservatives a reason to vote for you, other than just keeping the Dems out? How has that been working out?

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the
Titanic’s New Captain
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/14/2014 7:08:54 AM     Post Reply
The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

RNC Chairman: Obamacare still stinks

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

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.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
