HA HA HAS ANYONE MADE A FAT JOKE ABOUT CHRIS CHRISTIE YET? IS HE FAT? IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING? SHORT! STOCKY! HE IS SO POWERFUL HE CAN LIFT A HUNDRED POUNDS RIGHT OVER HIS HEAD!

Christie, citing his endorsements from trade unions, also said Republicans should try to pit private-sector and public- sector unions against each other.

"We as a party better get smart on this issue because those men and women who work for those private-sector unions know that the way they get to work and make more money and put food on the table for their families is private-sector job growth," he said. "We as a political party have an opportunity to drive a wedge in the union movement. And the laboratory where that is happening right now is in my state."



and there you have it folks, the most main stream candidate the GOP has to offer, and his model for getting elected is.....pit unions(that have endorsed him) against one another. The only reason this man is any sort of national figure is because he doesn't drool and shiat himself while having an "R" next to his name.

Chris Christie had a pleasant encounter with President Obama.  That will not work in the South with all the Teahadists running the primaries.

Pitting the poor white folk against the poor black folk worked well for such a long time. I think they can convince them that someone is getting a better deal and they are the enemy.
 
2013-08-18 07:11:42 AM  
His plan is to get workers to fight over who gets shafted?

Has he got anything else?

To be fair, that's how a lot of the Unions already work without any political manipulation whatsoever.

They don't care, they won't care. By then, Obama will have done it by bullying Christie. There'll be a well-accepted chain email about how Obama basically threatened to cut off funding if Christie didn't do it. There will be some way that it's not their fault, some way that Christie fits what they always wanted.

Look at Mitt Romney.

Ever notice these right wing drive by trolls never post their rationale? On some level even they got nothing (or they are just really dumb).

Chris Christie can never win a GOP primary because of the "do right by your state even if it means praising the liberalest liberal president who ever Kenyaned" thing and because his elimination of tax credits "raised property taxes," the very taxes that "allow them there revenooers to take yer laaaand!"

FTA: Christie, who defeated Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine in 2009 to win his first term, argued some in his party seem more interested in debates than election victories.
"I think we have some people who believe our job is to be college professors," he said.


wait a sec...

 "I think we have some people who believe our job is to be college professors," he said.

be? i think he meant to say, "beat." they believe it is their job to beat those eggheads.

Sadly, that is why I wouldn't be completely dismayed by a Christie victory. Disappointed, sure, but not Perry/Santorum/Palin/Bachmann disappointed.

Sounds like someone is counting their chickens in the egg basket.

He has survived by avoiding all the difficult and divisive national issues. He won't be able to do that in a Presidential Campaign, so no one really knows how he will fare. If he has the talent they say he has, he'll survive. But they said the same about Perry who was eaten alive.

His direct opponents are already pounding on him for accepting so much money for Sandy with no way to pay it back. Christie has yet to commemt on that in front of an unfriendly audience.

Yes, every republican governor should have a natural disaster a year before their reelection, so they could appear 100 times a day on commercials touting the recovery. It's been a great non-campaign campaign commercial for him.

Great idea, but how are they going to get a hurricane to hit the entire country?
 
2013-08-18 08:49:08 AM  
Yesterday in Wichita someone had positioned themselves over one of the walking bridges that spans Kellogg with a sign that said "Impeach Obama". They were there for at least 6 hours, as I ended up passing it twice. My wife - who agreed with the sentiment and waved to them - wondered aloud what they wanted to impeach Obama for, and neither of us had an answer.

I think it sums up politics in this country right now pretty nicely.

"IMPEACH OBAMA!"
"Why?"
*Shoulder shrug*

New Jersey may be (on the whole) a Democratic state only when you view it in comparison with Oklahoma, for example.

There's almost a preference for a man whose principles you detest (Christie) rather than men who appear to have no principles (McGreevy, Corzine).  Christie also seems to benefit from the fact that the opposition has yet to put forth a credible candidate for the Governor's office.

This is true. I cannot see myself voting for Buono, because all she's done so far has run attack ads, but nothing about how she's going to fix what she says the problems are. At least Christie is willing to work with the other party to get shiat done.

I hope he gets the GOP nomination. The Teabaggers will lose their shiat over a 'RINO' getting the nomination, and probably come up with their own write in candidate. THEN, I hope Christie wins. Cleanup from the head asplosions will take quite a while.

He's going to do what Clinton did Sister-Souljah style - and call out some tertiary Jesus-freak preacher or goober state legislator (most voters don't know the difference between a state legislator and a congressman, especially if it's not somebody from their home state) for being an asshat, and the national press will fall over themselves to praise him for speaking truth to power or some such horseshiat because they already have that story templated in their heads and this way they can just insert the appropriate names into their copy and go hit the bars.

I like Christie better than most of the Republicans, but he's got a Bloomberg nannying streak in him...so I'm hoping for Huntsman Hotness II: The Daughters Return.

Seriously, mental illness is not something you should ignore. Really, go to a doctor. You are probably a danger to yourself. I know it's hard as the voices in your head are loud, but there is help for you out there. Go get it. If you can't afford it now, Obamacare is about to be in force in October. Good luck.

Hell, it wouldn't even have to be someone THAT powerful.  Remember when he mouthed off to a teacher in a public forum and won accolades for it like he was standing up to a Roman farking emperor?

The Name: Remember when he mouthed off to a teacher in a public forum and won accolades for it like he was standing up to a Roman farking emperor?



That was actually his best moment, and it was the teacher who was mouthing off.

BTW, his worst moment was the speech (the 'highly anticipated' one) at the Republican National Convention.  Terrible let-down.  Someone up-thread said something about Hillary picking him for VP.  That's not all that far-fetched -  him accepting it, I mean.
