(The Daily Caller)   Poll shows that Chris Christie (R-otund) is more popular in New Jersey than Bruce Springsteen, which maybe means Jerseyites have figured out that "Born To Run" is not totally complimentary towards New Jersey   (dailycaller.com) divider line 33

Well to be perfectly fair to him, Christie basically threw Romney under the bus and did more to get Obama re-elected than probably any democrat aside from possibly Bill Clinton. You have to admit he's a very good politician, even though I disagree with him on a number of issues.

In your head, what possible use was Christy to the Obama campaign?

Was it Reagan who used "Born in the USA" during his campaign thinking it was a flag-waving song?

I think it was a number of uber-patriotic retards, Reagan being the retardiest of them all.

And considering the average Republican, that's saying something!

And Christie is pretty much the antithesis of born to run.

Aside from damn near every poll showing thst Obama had a comfortable lead at the time..

Christy didn't do jack shiat to get Obama re-elected. What he did do was make sure that emergency funds got into his state, while Mitt held dumbass food drives thst were mostly meaningless.

You mean aside from the whole Hurricane Sandy thing the last week of the election? Oh it was all theater, but it sure suggested that Obama was working across the aisle.

I think you're misstating the importance of that event. Yes, Christie did his job as governor. He met one of his basic qualifications, which was disaster relief. Good for him for not being a douchenozzle about taking federal aid.

What it really did though was show how much of an out-of-touch boob Romney was. Just when he had a golden chance to prove how he would handle such a thing, were he in Obama's shoes, he decided to hold food drives the Red Cross specifically stated not to do. And THAT's what helped Obama more than a handshake with the guy who turned right around, and tried to stop gay marriage from occurring in his state.

Gov. Christie only looked good because he did what any sane person ought to do in his spot. The fact is the whole rest of the time he's been in office, he's pilloried his state's education fund, tried to stop the tides of change and deny his citizens their rights, and has made giveaways to his corporate masters.

That and Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" which is also seen as a flag-waving song by people who don't listen to the lyrics.

I have also heard "Fortunate Son" (to sell Wranger jeans) and "American Woman" (to sell Tommy Hilfiger) used as patriotic sounding songs.  People don't really listen to lyrics.

It's because half the people I talk to think he's "really a democrat" and like him because he told republicans to fark off.

When you start mentioning his actually policies, and things he's done, you get a lot of "Wait, really? I didn't know that."

Too bad it's me and not Buono who's out there telling everyone that Chris Christie is still a Republican,

Perhaps I am slightly overstating. I do think that in what was up to that point a relatively close election, it gave Obama the platform to demonstrate his effectiveness as a leader. Anyway, yes Christie's otherwise been a pinhead in a lot of ways, my biggest beef is on education.

Wait, what?  Christie and Obama staged Sandy to give Obama an opportunity to do his job by NJ?  Is that the theory?  I'm honestly confused.

Well of course Obama used a weather machine! You don't think that whole Hurricane Sandy thing could have hit NY without the use of a specialized particle beam acceleration type device that shifted the jet stream north, do you?

The whole "hurricane sandy thing"? You mean where there was a catastrophic storm and the government worked the way it's supposed to? You think that did it? That's why NJ went blue?

I don't get this argument. Are people trying to imply NJ would have voted for Romney if it weren't for Sandy? Because if so, I've got a bridge for sale.

It was never really that close.  The Republicans kept deskewing their polls to keep the campaign contributions rolling in, and the political media circus kept saying it was close so people would keep on watching.  But short of Obama having a mental breakdown on camera during a live news conference there was nothing that would have put Romney in the White House.

no, the argument is that sandy got national attention, showing the president in a good light rather than the biblical antichrist he most certainly is. the bottom line is, without hurricane sandy, romney would have won every state except kenya.

study. it. out.

Haha, "Born to Run" is a song about how Bruce and his girlfriend are stuck in their shiathole town and they just want to get out and go somewhere else. It's our state's Unofficial Youth Anthem (seriously, it was passed in a state government motion a while back). So dumb.
