Chris Christie’s Opinion on SCOTUS’
Hobby Lobby Ruling: ‘Who Knows?’

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/1/2014 8:21:44 PM

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on CNBC’s Sqwuak Box Tuesday morning and warned against GOP candidates getting “bogged down” by social issues. To demonstrate how one does not get bogged down, he answered a question as to whether the Supreme Court had correctly ruled in the so-called Hobby Lobby case yesterday by saying, “Who knows?” “When you’re an executive, your Supreme Court makes a ruling and you gotta live with it unless you can get the legislative body to change the law or change the constitution,” Christie said. “Why should I give an opinion on whether they’re right or wrong?

Comments:
Who knows? Seriously? That certainly is unusual for a guy who has an opinion on everything and is never afraid to say it.

He refused to join with the rest of the other states in the civil action against 0bamacare and is waffling now on this.
He is nothing but a huge RINO standing in the middle of the road waiting to get run over . .. . and he will.

Look, I saw the interview. All you Christie haters are sucking in the DEM bate. All nothing burgers, same as the Bridgegate cone thing.

Christie has shrunk the NJ State government since he has been Governor. That´s what we need in Washington. And he won his most recent election in a landslide over 61%.

If you think your fav TeaParty candidate can win LOFOs 61%, bring him/her on. I just don´t think that person exists.

Christie in 2016. Otherwise, we are probably done for.

“When you’re an executive, your Supreme Court makes a ruling and you gotta live with it unless you can get the legislative body to change the law or change the constitution,”

I have a better idea ... how about if the legislative body adheres to the Constitution and existing law ... when they pass new legislation.

The statute under discussion is not part of the ACA. It was written after by one of Sebelli´s bureaucrats. It´s part of the 10,000+ pages of regulations written by DHS. It´s all so ridiculous to thinking people.

In the history of bad candidates run by the republicans Chris Christie would set a new low. He brings absolutely nothing to the table and his performance at the convention as a keynoter was embarrassingly bad and completely self-involved, as though he thought he was the candidate in 2012. If you want low turnout, definitely nominate the governor of NJ. Maybe he can do more last minute photo ops with Zippy or tell us why we are wrong about the danger of Islam. He would be the death knell of the Republican party.

NEW YORK The best thing we can say about Thursday´s stock market trading is that it is now over. The Dow fell 317 points, erasing all of its gains for the year. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq fell sharply as well, each down about 2%. They gave back the all the gains they had made in July. Heavy selling overseas, driven by worries about Argentina´s latest debt default and more problems with a big Portuguese bank, combined with a slew of negative earnings and a disappointing outlook on manufacturing from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to drop stocks.

President Obama’s remarks Wednesday that Republicans are “hating all the time,” sound like a junior high school-level taunt, according to Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt. At the Kansas City, Mo., speech Obama complained that Republicans refuse to work with with him to address the nation’s issues. “We could do so much more if Congress would just come on and help out a little bit,” Obama said. “Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hating all the time. Let’s get some work done together.” In response to the dig, Blunt, a Republican, told reporters that Obama’s remarks were “the kinds of things that

Polling data compiled by Tea Party Patriots and provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows that a majority of Republican voters think Republicans standing strong on immigration is more important than repealing Obamacare, getting to the bottom of the Benghazi or IRS scandals—or anything else for that matter. When asked by TPP’s pollster which issue they think is the important for Republicans in Congress to deal with, 34.6 percent of GOP voters said stopping the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border. Stopping Obama’s “illegal overreach” with executive power came in a distant second with 24 percent of GOP voters saying

Fox News host Tucker Carlson and contributor Kirsten Powers bitterly clashed over the United States’ supposed “moral obligation” to illegal immigrant refugees around the world, with Powers invoking Christian principles and Carlson countering that “this is not a theocracy” and no one has “a moral right to American tax dollars and physical asylum in the United States.” Carlson — who is also editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller — and Powers appeared on Fox’s “Outnumbered” on Thursday to discuss growing opposition to President Obama’s handling of illegal immigration.

The border bill that was apparently defeated by conservative GOP legislators would have greatly expanded the “unaccompanied alien child” loophole that is now being used by at least 80,000 Central American youths to win legal residency in the United States. “This takes a problem that is bad, and makes it worse,” a Hill staffer that wished to remain anonymous told The Daily Caller. In a dramatic confrontation, the bill was pulled from consideration once the GOP leadership could not find enough votes. However, GOP leaders are preparing to bring a revised version to the floor for a vote late this

Illegal Immigration Is

So says those radical right-wingers at the Washington Post. Immigration has emerged as perhaps President Obama’s worst issue — definitely for today, and maybe of his entire presidency — when it comes to public perception. A new poll from AP-GfK shows more than two-thirds of Americans (68 percent) disapprove of Obama’s handling of the immigration issue in general. Just 31 percent approve — down from 38 percent two months ago. Big surprise here. When you encourage and allow chaos on the border, Americans find you in disfavor. Obama has the unique ability to irritate everyone. The middle and right are

Amid the continuing imprisonment in Mexico of a U.S. Marine, another apparent miscarriage of justice is being called out by the families of three Marines who were killed in an insider attack in Afghanistan. The attacker has been sentenced to just 7.5 years in prison by an Afghan court. Staff Sgt. Scott E. Dickinson, 29, Cpl. Richard A. Rivera, 20, and Lance Cpl. Gregory T. Buckley Jr., 21, were fatally shot, while a fourth Marine was wounded, when the Afghan teen opened fire at their base in Aug. 2012. The teen was being trained by the Marines to join the

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell complained Thursday that President Obama has gone AWOL on the border surge crisis by refusing to try to work with Republicans on a bill to solve the problem. After initially laying out a series of reforms that could help speed up deportations, Mr. Obama has since retreated, Mr. McConnell said, after “he listened once again to his most partisan instincts instead of uniting Congress around a common solution.” “It’s exasperating for those of us who want to work toward bipartisan solutions. It’s confusing, I’m sure, to Democrats who share our desire to get something done.

Sen.

A good friend of mine apologized to me today.

He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col.

The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama.
