he hammered himself, yo
 
2012-08-30 09:09:13 AM  
Of course Christie spent so much time talking about himself, he wants to pump up his chances in '16. He knows that Rmoney isn't going to win, and is positioning himself as the nominee...he isn't a dummy...

Yeah I've never seen a first lady take a beating like that who doesn't get involved in anything really partisan like Hillary Clinton did. The freakin lady is trying to get kids to eat healthy...
 
2012-08-30 09:11:01 AM  
To be fair, Chris Christie is a fat sack of shiat who has 1.6 million in illegal corporate donations and ties to corrupt union bosses. Ann Romney is just a housewife who thinks you should vote for her husband because she has MS and could die any moment.

I see the victim mentality is still alive and strong.

How about Chris Christie hammering Ann Romney? From behind? I remember that Lovecraft story, "From Behind!!!" There were no happy ends nor endings in it.

She is telling us what we can and cannot do! She is taking away our freedom and liberties!
I will eat a steak everyday smothered in butter to show her that she cannot tell me what to do!

Some people say she makes love to a dancing horse to cure her retardation. I don't know if it's true.

Speaking Wednesday to Fox News, Giuliani said, "(Media members) don't like (Christie's) message, they don't like what he's trying to do and they certainly don't want to see (Mitt) Romney win. So they gotta tear down something. They couldn't really tear down Mrs. Romney's speech. First of all, it would have been insensitive to attack her. Second, she gave a great speech and it would have been very hard to attack her. So they pick on Chris, who is a target. ... I don't think Chris could win, at least not with the liberal media."

Ruddy, let me let you in on something. Real American Conservatives don't like you. Because to them, no matter how much crap you shrill out against Obama, you'll always be the former mayor of the libbiest liberal libtropolis of all time.

"I thought it was a good speech, I'd give him a score of 9/11."

Ann was pretty awful. She sounded like a sorority girl at a homeless shelter explaining how hard her life is.
 
2012-08-30 09:18:27 AM  
Speaking of "does to Michelle Obama"... Listening to NPR's Morning Edition, they played a snippet from a Rep convention attendee giving her opinion on Obama:

"I don't like him. I can't stand to look at him." She went on to say (paraphrasing from memory here) "And Michelle Obama doesn't even look like a First Lady... we need a First Lady who looks like a First Lady."
 
2012-08-30 09:19:00 AM  
The prevailing sentiment surrounding Christie's speech is that he spent too much of his 24-minute address talking about himself and not enough time speaking about GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Maybe cause Christie knows this election is a wash and hes setting himself up for 2016.


If you ask conservatives I'd wager they would rather wait 4 years to elect Christie than elect Romney this time around.
 
2012-08-30 09:19:23 AM  
Did anyone else see the news blurb from the Arizona Governor saying she hopes Obama wins? That one soundbite just made the whole convention for me.

Yeah, but she's not running for anything so who cares? I mean, we can make fun of the bird shirt and Rafalca, and the fact that she thinks having to sell some stock in grad school makes her understand hard times, but...

She's just a bored housewife. She won't set a single policy. It's like "attacking" Laura Bush. Why would you do that?
 
2012-08-30 09:20:45 AM  

WTF Indeed: and ties to corrupt union bosses


How come people like George Norcross are corrupt when linked to Christie, but saints who could do no wrong when they are NJ moneymen for the democratic party?

I'm guessing Presidents and First Ladies are not supposed to be so brown.

I heard that woman, as well. The hatred dripping from her tone was more than a little scary. It's not about race for everyone, not even for most people, but for that woman it definitely is. Scary that there are still people like that in 2012.

I've been told by some that the first lady can control WHAT YOU EAT. If that isn't power I don't know what is.

That's pretty close to what I recall hearing, but it was an attendee at the VFW(?) convention Romney spoke at earlier this week.

Huge WTF moment for me on my morning drive. I have never understood the vitriol for Mrs. Obama. On top of that was how incredibly... well.... racist it came across to me.

\\I know, I know. I'm the racist for saying that.

You do understand that in New Jersey every politician is connected to a level of corruption that makes it impossible for them to obtain higher office? It's only republicans who are dumb enough to think that, "Oh that won't matter, because I'm a republican and we hate unions so people will think I got elected in New Jersey inspite of the unions." When in reality the unions and party bosses run the state.

, like, how hard her life is, and stuff, you know?

Fixed for my amusement.
 
2012-08-30 09:27:05 AM  
No, it's because Ann's speech was largely about her husband loves her (and vice versa) and there's not really anything that can be said against that.

Whereas Christie's speech was a flaming pile of crap.

Just for awareness, since KTAR articles are being greenlit a lot these past few days, I should point out that KTAR is owned by the Mormon Church.

Um, can we have more pictures of the First Lady, please? You know, for research purposes, to make sure she looks suitably First-Lady-like.

Republicans like Chris Christie because, unlike the other Republican governors, he doesn't make those huge stimulus checks he begged Washington for seem so big during the photo ops.

And so far the most anybody has been able to say about Christie (aside from being fat) is that he didn;t get fired by Bush so he must have secretly run Cheneys death squads or some tinfoil bullscat.

compromising is now a form of corruption?

In that case lets get this compromising president out of office.....cause he is obviously corrupt, or something.
