The bar for what makes a hero seems to have been lowered to the point that Christie can step over it.
 
2014-07-25 10:27:54 AM  
Far too many people sitting in prisons for non-violent drug crimes and called on Republicans to focus on people not just before they're born but after as well.

"I'm pro-life and if you're pro-life you have to be pro-life when they get out of the womb also


so..he's not running for president?

From Philly to Boston: The bar for what makes a hero seems to have been lowered to the point that Christie can step over it.


I'm pretty sure that if Chris Christie tried to step over any bar, he'd lose his balance, fall onto it, and crush it into a fine powder.

That's too low. He should be able to sidle up to it and order a drink.

I'm no fan of Christie, but that's by far the most reasonable thing I've heard him say.

I don't believe for a second that he means it, but it's nice to hear something from a Republican that's not pants-on-head retarded.
 
2014-07-25 11:52:20 AM  
Gee, I wish I could recognize Chris Christie doing something good, but all this other self-serving and petty crap he's done is blocking the way for the good news about him to travel in a timely fashion.

He did yell at a reporter who asked him if he was worried about "Sharia Law" when he appointed a Muslim to the state court.  He does have moments of rational thought.

That depends on the bar. If the bar was surrounding an all you can eat family buffet, he'd sail over it like Rudolph Nureyev*.

George Carlin, nearly twenty years ago:
"Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're farked. Conservatives don't give a shiat about you until you reach military age. Then they think you're just fine. Just what they've been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers. Pro-life... pro-life... These people aren't pro-life, they're killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they'll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it? They're not pro-life. You know what they are? They're anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don't like them. They don't like women. They believe a woman's primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state. "

Either he's said, "Fark it" to running for higher office, or he's got a team of brilliant political masterminds carefully setting him up for a run as the only non-batshiat Republican, to catch the swing votes.

Based on Christie's past, "mastermind" is, shall we say... less probable.

I still say you guys are overcomplicating it.  Look at Romney.

Once they clear the GOP candidate field of the clown college rejects like the last time, if Christie is last person standing, they'll rally behind him regardless of his statements or deeds.

Sister Joan agrees.

On Nov. 12, 2004, Sister Joan told Bill Moyers: "But I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking. If all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed, and why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of what pro-life is."

I would have actually considered voting for him.  the Republicans picked the wrong Mormon.  It's also an awesome last name for a US President.

Yes, of course.  But the vote of GOP faithful is not enough.  You have to get the Undecideds as well, in solid numbers.  To get those votes, you have to at least appear to be relatively reasonable, or at least willing to act like an adult some of the time.  That's what they may be doing in his camp - prepping for a late run when everyone else is screwed six ways to Sunday and Christie is all the GOP greybeards have left.

But I kind of doubt it.  I'm thinking Christie is too impatient for that, and is just saying, "Fark the GOP, I'll say what I want and if they don't like it, I've still got Jersey."

But I could be wrong.

Such are the mental hoops you have to jump through to be a Republican since the Age of Reagan (PBUH) and the Moral Majority.

SNAP and WIC are entitlements for obese black women driving Cadillac Escalades while talking on their Obamaphones, ditto for HeadStart. There are no "proper" people who make use of such things.

Pre and post natal care are entitlements as well and have no place in a just society, and in fact healthcare in general should be tied to that reliable indicator of your worth of a person (and your child,) how much money you make.

Planned Parenthood is one big trillion-dollar abortionplex, just like the Onion article states.

Life is sacred in the case of Terri Schiavo, brain-dead fetuses that endanger the mother, rape, and situations where the parents can't support the children (often because of our actions on the above.) There are millions of good Christian couples willing to adopt, which is why no good Christian couples have voted for IVF to be mandatory coverage in states like Arkansas, Texas and Alabama.

Which also leads to interesting quandaries involving "life begins at conception" laws.

But after that magical 9 month window... fark 'em. God hands them bootstraps and is done with them.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Hence my thought that he's not really a mastermind about this.


He's really not a mastermind about anything. His approval rating is now at roughly 50%, which doesn't sound so bad until you realize it was as high as something like 85%. The thing is, most of his blunders don't really escape the local news. Two examples off the top of my head was preventing a popular judge from being confirmed to the state Supreme Court for the crime of being a Democrat, and his opposition to the re-election of Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr, whostill won. Kean is an actual moderate Republican who is popular on both sides of the aisle, and if Christie keeps taking pot shots at him, it will not do him any good.
