Did Chris Christie blow the election?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

More and more election numbers and breakdowns keep coming in, among the surprising results were how much of an impact Hurricane Sandy had on the election. According to a CBS poll, 42% of voters felt that President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy was important to their vote. With Chris Christie, an early and prominent Romney supporter, praising President Obama’s response to the disaster, does the New Jersey governor hold some of the blame for Romney’s defeat?

When going through a list of potential 2016 candidates posted on TheBlaze, Glenn and Pat said they would not support Christie after his praise for Obama in the past few weeks.

“Dead to me. I would never vote for that guy. Never,” Pat said.

“Dead to me,” Glenn added.

“Did not help himself at least for future prospects in the Republican party,” Stu said. “I like Chris Christie when he talks about education. He did not help himself the way he acted.”

Stu added that with the exit polls showing the importance of Hurricane Sandy to the voters, Christie’s praise for President Obama likely had some impact on the election.

    Who cares about Christie?  He’s a liberal easterner and a non-starter for me.  I am sick of these liberal republicans.  These people hate traditional American values and want their cultural rot on one hand but then want their wealth on the other.  Sorry, you people have to pick because you can’t have both of them for long.

    Hi Glen look I’am annoyed about USA having B.O. for another 4 years he is bad 4 economy,bad 4 employment & bad 4 Israel !!! But what could Christie do not stand beside the guy who is giving tax payers money to help in the natural disaster may have been worse to Romney.
    Look I may have missed something as I am Australian we get a lot down here from USA your old co FOX. Etc not everything . Sorry for the really bad weather and heart goes out for you guys . Get your show down here it was popular !!
    Hey just thought why not come out with line of product to get rid of B.O.Most obvious deodorant !! Ha,ha.

    how dare Christie put the recovery of his state before politics!
    how can you criticize a guy for doing his job as governor during a natural disaster?

  • Anonymous

    Governor Christie wants to be part of the In Crowd (he never left high school) and hard left millionaire populist Bruce Spingteen is his idol .

    The republicans have stayed away from cheap populism throughout the centuries . Republicans like Abe Lincoln, Calvin Coolidge, or Ronald Reagan have stick to individual liberty ideals .. Governor Christie should have a good primary against him , because he worships leftist multi millionaire Bruce Springsteen (who banned republicans supporters from his music) and Christie might be incline to join the hard left party of the democrats , anyway…..

    ” A Vote for party ardent Collectivism (control over individuals) was a vote Obama –A Vote for Individual Freedom (individual liberty) was a vote vote for Romney —

    Other Notes : “Didn’t mega millionaire Bruce Spingsteen side with hard left democrat senator Ted Kennedy’s stance on the Soviet Union in the 1980s ?

    Ted Kennedy went against Reagan and sided with the Soviet Union (somewhat) by warning the USSR about freedom advocate Ronald Reagan. Ted Kennedy is a much different than JFK (almost opposites)…..Should Born in the USA , really be Born in the USSR ? “”

    I think statistics and observation prove that since LBJ introduced the entitlement society that the whole US population is in decline in many areas but none more so than the blacks. The family unit as the central part of Black society has been destroyed, literacy rates have declined, hopes and dreams are gone. Prior to that the dems brought in Jim Crow laws and were for segregation.  Creating the projects and pushing abortion has destroyed black society and is just as bad as slavery.

    I think Christie went a bit overboard in his praise for the President, and he is smart enough to recognize the timing wasn’t ideal, either.  He never clarified his support for Romney at the same time, which is what I find most distressing.  Now, I like him, but no longer trust him.  Maybe he was afraid NJ would get the same treatment the GOP Governors received from Obama after the BP oil spill.

    Obama showed up for a photo op and Christy fell for it.  I can’t believe that the camera loving Cuomo and Bloomberg knew enough not to take the bait!  The money would have come in regardless… there was no need for Christy to soil his knees worshiping at the Liberal Alter.

    He certainly went a overboard on praising Obama, but he should have said (like they told Bush during Katrina) please don’t come, we don’t have the ability to handle all the necessary details for your visit, just send the people who can help us distribute aid.  The timing was terrible for Romney and anyone with a brain would have realized that this would enhance the image of Obama.

     I do believe that God puts every leader in power…but not for the reasons you note.  It has nothing to do with being a good leader.  God does not care about your current comfort in life…because it does not bring Him Glory…and certainly not your heart.  Yes, God allowed and even wanted Obama to be President for four more years.  His view is much longer than us 15-second sound-bite media wh%^es who are only concerned about ourselves and about life being fair.  Life isn’t fair.  This world is broken.  God wants your hearts so you can live with him for eternity in a perfect “world”…not so you can sit on a comfy couch and be safe and comfortable for your short years on this earth.  Obama won.  God wanted that for reasons we may never understand.  Discomfort and lack of control over our lives is what many will need to turn to Him.  Republicans feel that today.  Democrats will feel that in a few years when the country is bankrupt and there are no more checks coming in the mail to put food on the table.  Their faith in government to care for their needs is sheer lunacy…and when it fails, God will be there…as He always has been.

That’s what he was  hired to do.

  • Anonymous

    Whatever Christy’s reasons were for his actions & praise for Obama, one can only speculate. I can imagine he was traumatized over the devastation left by Sandy and felt the weight of being in a position of leadership. That’s not to excuse the actions, only try and temper my reaction taking into consideration his possible mental and emotional state. What was demonstrated to me however, was how quick he shifted his seeming allegiance under pressure to someone he had nothing but criticism for previously. In addition, he did not return to verbalize any support for Romney. I lost any trust and/or respect I had for him because of that. At first I liked him because he had the moxie to speak up when the majority of Republicans remain cowardly, spineless and unreliable. My discomfort with him has grown though as I have watched him go from being blunt and outspoken to outright rude and bullying (power thrusts) in some instances. Both of the above scenarios makes me question his stability and reliability under pressure…and I don’t like what I see. These are not qualities that constitute good leadership.

    The big blame for Mitt Romney’s loss is the American media.  Yes, media.
    They did not vet Pres. Obama the first time around and in 2012 they did not
    report all of the happenings that Pres. Obama did not take action on or if
    it wasn’t good the things he did take action on.
    Chris Christie is an idiot!  He does not know how
    to say NO.  It costs every state police manpower to
    get ready for a visit from the Pres.  A very lot of money
    that the majority of states do not have.  That police
    manpower could have been better used during Hurricane
    to watch over the homes of those who had to leave so
    that the looters couldn’t loot.  Christie lost the ball on that
    one.  I heard on one of the Cable News channels that
    Christie appointed a Sharia judge in his state.  When
    asked why, he stated he was getting tired from all of
    the flack.  A good Republican has to know when to
    say NO.  If he couldn’t say know then how could he
    possibly run a country.
    80% media blame and 20% Christie blame.

    I was absolutely disappointed in how Christie handled everything with Obama. When asked about the election and Romney he said “I could care less about the election” and mentioned that he was just concerned about his own state.  I thought, what an awful thing to say….I understand that it’s tough what’s going on on the East Coast–but our country just got officially given over to socialism.  and for him to sit there and pat Obama on the back made me irate–the one time Obama looks presidential RIGHT before the election and he’s praising him like he’s always been this way.  Christie has lost my respect and I did notice that Obama got a bump in the polls after Sandy.  It’s frustrating to me. I don’t know for sure if it made the biggest impact in the election, but it definitely did make some sort of difference.

    You fellas just displayed childish nonsense and that makes me ashamed of you.  It’s one thing to offer a critique on how an individidual dealt with  a particular situation and quite another to  disparage an individual because of his/her weight.  So what if Christie is over-weight; at least he admits it and tells you he knows it isn’t healthy–why should you care?  Furthermore, have you looked at yourselves–you aren’t exactly the healthy, svelt male centerfolds because each of you could afford to shed a few pounds.  That said, since when is a “thank you for your concern” become a praise of adoration?    At least Christie exhibited the good manners he was taught.  Oh, I almost forgot–the infamous ‘bear hug’ Christie gave obammy; that really put it over the top for you, didn’t it, so that gives you the right to become snide dolts, doesn’t it.   While I still like you fellas, I am disappointed that you behaved like a bunch of 3rd graders making fun of a kid who was somehow different from them instead of the adults you are supposed to be.  Just so you know, NOT having a President Romney is a huge disappointment to me and many others as well.  Somehow, I think if the old guard republicans, Rove and Morris, had just shut up and stayed home during the campaign, things may have turned out better for all of us.

PUT OTHERS FIRST!   He swallowed his pride which is hard for anyone.  He was there with those who had lost everything.  He had to get government assistance for the rescue of those the Mayor of Atlantic City told it was ok to stay.  Look into someone’s eyes that has just been through what New Jersey residents had gone through and say “Excuse me but with the presidential election next week, I can’t practice the common and polite response of thank you.”

    Secondly, Christie did NOT have to slobber all over Obama. He KNEW what that photo op would do with the slobbering. BUT as an experienced trial attorney he knew exactly what he was doing. Albeit he DID look like he was having a meltdown that can be attributed to two factors.

     First, his naivete saying “I didn’t expect to see house off their foundations”. Really? I’m a live long resident and have seen it plenty of times and the March Storm of 1962 is historic – so so much for “Mr. NJ Tough Guy”. Secondly, he KNEW he was about to become Judas and was trying to hold it together. FAIL. He’s going the way of Charlie Christ now – nowhere.

    And the crying over a call from Springsteen is LOLZY enough to follow him around forever.

    Face it–Republicans, especially the conservatives, did NOT VOTE because their vanity suffered when Ron Paul was discarded by the rino party goers.  What a shame–and as a result, we now have the communist regime back in our White House.  Ron Paul has run for President for at least the last 4 or 5 elections, mostly as an independent, and a couple times as a Republican.  In every case, he was rejected by the R’s because his agenda was not what the old guard R’s wanted, even though Paul was right.  It is sad to say, but Paul could never get a large enough political base that would put him in the WhiteHouse and his followers know that.  Every time Paul was shuffled to the background by the old guard, he was snubbed and the old guard pretended he never existed; this is not the first time Paul was snubbed and older supporters knew this would happen again this election year.  Instead, they acted like spoiled children, wailing at the usual treatment the old guard shoved in Paul’s face–and like the spoilded children they have become, decided not to vote for anyone.  Now it’s time to pay the piper, but we can change the direction if the spoiled children will quit their pouting and take some positive action in the 2014 elections and again in 2016.  Hopefully, the Republicans in office can push our demands back at the dems even if the dems scream ‘foul.’  What’s important is to let hairy reid understand he does not represent the people because we represent ourselves through those we elect and WE THE PEOPLE can enforce our demands as well.  As for the current status of the Republican Party, perhaps we should make our demands known at the HQ level and tell them the old guard has got to go–they are no longer useful to the NEW Republicans.  Do I like Ron Paul–I most certainly do and hoped many years he would be in the White House, but I also understood he needed a sound political base which never materialized.

    I think you guys are nuts to go after Christie for working with Obama.  There is such a thing as “doing the right thing, let the consequences look after themselves.”  If I had been the Republican governor of New Jersey, I would have done exactly what Chris would have done – even if I totally opposed every one of Obama’s policy decisions.

    You guys should try reading Oswald Chambers’ “My utmost for his highest.”

    I watched as Christie praised Obama, giving him credit before credit is due. Some say he did it to get funding. I don’t care what his goal was, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and witnessing with my own eyes. All I thought was “what a slap in the face. How unusual another lying politician”. I don’t know what Coulter said about Christies praise of NObama, but I’m curious to know if she had a comment for her HERO. He’s lost my respect. He’s just another scab on the current administrations behind. I’m still sick over Romneys defeat and scared to death of what we are about to face.

    Christie could have mentioned the help given by Romney and Mercury and why did he not think of having a photo op with Romney as well for that is all Obama did for sandy, Sad like Beck says elections have consequences today all US is a Divided Socialist State of America. I do not think America realizes that these vote banks of illegal immigrants will have dire consequences. All that the world sees today is a divided nation on the lines of color and class and religion, over the fiscal cliff, a country of people wanting to live on entitlements, welcome to the New Europe of the West. 
    Sad to see the mighty country of hard working people giving up to the free loaders, who have no love lost for their country of birth or choice. I mourn for you Dear America. A very Proud Indian.

    In reading all the comments, I agree with you all, we are in this together. I have been repeating to everyone the information I learned from Glenn in 2010 “stay away from the progressives, both republican and democrat.” They are the problem and they’ve grown like a bad fungus. There are so many of them, how can we possibly begin to stop them or identify them ?

    I have never written a public figure.  But I left this message on Christie’s website.  For those of you who feel strongly, I strongly suggest you leave your thoughts on his website, too:

    “Regarding your over-the-top endorsement of Obama, please
    don’t use the excuse any more that you have a crisis on your hands and the
    election is nothing compared to what you are dealing with.  We know you have a crisis.  And now with Obama in office, we have a MUCH
    bigger crisis.  ALL of us do, not just
    you.  As I think you are aware, if the
    economy keeps on this track, our nation will experience just what NJ is
    experiencing now.  And how dare you call
    Obama to congratulate him and only send Romney an email.  I am shocked! 
    I have never sought out a public official to write about my
    concerns.  I am a busy mom of two young
    children.  But yet, I feel so strongly about
    this, I had to write you.  I just can’t
    express the depths of my disappointment. 
    We were so hoping you would run for the presidency in 2012.  Now, I will never, ever vote for you.  Just thought you should know.”

    Helping the people he represents does not mean Christie should kiss up to Obama at the last stages of a presidential election.  Christie should expect our national government to help in a national crisis.  Is kissing-up a requirement?  The national pictures of Christie and Obama — with Christie chasing after Obama like a homeless puppy — are devastating and were devastating to the election.  How about putting “others first” in our nation.  At this economic rate, our fate as a nation will be exactly what we see happening in NJ and NY — with shortages of gas, food, etc.  Yes, Christie should work for his people — but in this case, he worked for Obama.  Now, as stories are emerging of the lack of help for these east coast people, where is Obama?  Oh, that’s right, I heard he was wrapped up in a game of basketball today.  If Christie wanted to praise Obama, he should have waited to see Obama’s long term results — not the results of his campaigning.  Why did Christie call Obama to congratulate him, but only sent a condolence email to Romney?  I think the man has gone insane…sad to say.  I wanted him to run so badly in 2012.  Now, I will never, ever vote for him.

    Glenn, 

        It’s embarrassing to hear you and your radio cohorts mock Chris Christie for his physical size.  That is so beneath the moral, principled host who appears on The Blaze at 5:00 pm.  Are you a different person on your radio show? 

       In the face of the hurricane Sandy disaster that hit New Jersey, in spite of the ongoing election campaign, Christie had to be governor and had to interact with the president of the United States to the benefit of his hurting state.  If he had played politics, the media would have crucified him.  It’s sad to see you come in and do the job for them.

    Three reasons I think Christie’s every move was to insure a clear field for himself in 2016–
    1.  He built up expectations for Romney’s performance in the 1st debate–set high expectations that he thought would set the bar too high and doom Romney–but Romney, with the help of a zombie Obama, met these expectations and more.
    2.  Christie’s RNC speech was mainly about himself (sounds like our current Prez, doesn’t it?) not about Romney–setting the stage for himself for 2016 because he thought Romney likely to lose.
    3.  He campaigned for Romney as long as Romney was likely to lose, but when it looked like Romney had momentum and could actually win, he kissed up to Obama, thus helping Obama overcome the partisan label and undercutting Romney’s potent issue that he would and had worked across the aisle.

    He should just come out of the closet and join the Dem. party already!

    Gov. Christie could simply have said what Mayor Bloomberg said:  A visit from the President that early on would simply add to the chaos.  Pres. Obama did nothing to crow about when it came to the storm.  He showed up for a photo op.  big deal.     If Gov. Christie wanted to thank the President for his interest, that was fine.   What he did was go overboard with his lavish praise and gushing over the guy , despite the President doing nothing.

     Actually I thought of one more too–I read that Christie declined an invitation to join Romney/Ryan at a campaign rally that was no more that 20 minutes from him during the last day or night of the campaign.  He could have spent a few minutes there, spoken out for Romney, and gone right back to NJ.  It’s not as if he were physically involved in the clean-up.

    I’m sure happy that everyone finally saw thru him……FINALLY!

    And by the way when you get a minute can everyone email him  and ask exactly how obama has helped any of the people now that the photo op and election is over…..
    He’s not helped ANYONE to this date!!  People are helping one another not one single “leader” has helped in ANY way!

    Look….one hand waxes the other hand that photo op was nothing but, money changing hands,
    kind of “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours”  we were sold out alongggggg time ago by each one of them,

    When Governor Christie gushed over Obama, I had a sickening feeling that he was going to hurt Romney bad, and I think he may have caused him the election.  Obama did nothing that any other President would not have done.   Obama  went to the site, giving them big bucks of hard working taxpayers money, not his, asked people to donate to Red Cross and then he went back to campaigning.  Governor Christie went totally overboard and according to the news article I read said he did not care what Romney thought about it.  How could that not have  hurt.  To me it was like a big knife in his back.   Christie was one of the keynote speakers at the Republican Convention.
    Adkins hurt him also by staying on the ticket after Akins  very stupid remark.  I thought Romney should have totally thrown this man under the bus.

  • http://twitter.com/maryantonya M A Perez-Andujar

    No, Chris Christie did not blow the election. Mitt Romney did not blow the election. Karl Rove did not blow the election. The media did not blow the election. It was the GOP IDEAS that blew the election! YOUR IDEAS that blew the election. It was the lack of contact with the real world, real science, what women need, the immigrant vote, the GLBT community, the agnostics… The GOP speaks for the white aging man who misses the 50′s… and that is who voted for it. Simple as that.

  • http://twitter.com/Jbtread Julianna Treadwell

    Umm, let’s see — if I care about someone and consider him a teammate, I will put more time and attention into that person.  For example, if that person won or lost an election, I would CALL them because it would be important to me to truly support that person.  On the other hand, if I didn’t care about someone and didn’t consider someone a teammate, I would email that person.  The difference between the two seems obvious.  A phone call makes a statement.  An email is an obligation.  Simply put, even after the election, Christie is STILL kissing up to Obama.  It is repulsive.  What was Christie supposed to say in a phone call to Romney?  Try something like, “Hey, I campaigned for you, I spoke at your convention, I supported you and I’m sorry we lost this one.  We can win it next time.  Great job.  Great try. You worked hard and you were a great candidate.” That is what someone who supports someone would say.  The way Christie has conducted himself is beyond comprehension.

    Obama was there because he left town to campaign the day after the attack at Benghazi and was called on the carpet for it..  He HAD to show up after the hurricane.  Any president would have offered the financial help.  What Christie did was use the word “Leadership” in praising the President.  It was like campaigning for him.  Before that he was always criticized for his lack of leadership.  He could have thanked Obams for his support and told him it was sincerely appreciated by the people of NJ, but he might just as well have endorsed him for re-election with the words he used.  Christie was my hero but I will not vote for him again.  I feel he betrayed his party.

    Glenn, Pat and Stu,  I am so disappointed in you making fun of Christie’s weight.  Shame on you. It’s not for lack of trying to lose weight.  Next, although I thought of Christie as a hero for NJ, I will not vote for him. He lost my vote when instead of thanking the President for aid for the hurricane, which any president would have done, he actually campainged for him when he used the word “Leadership” in praising him.  Obama before that was always criticized for his lack of leadership.  I don’t think this was a slip of the tongue.  It was intentional, although I don’t know the reason why, unless he wanted to put himself in favor with Democrats.  He may have helped Obama’s re-election, but he certainly hurt his own, maybe even killed it.

    As soon as I saw Christie kissing up to Obama I knew the very close race was in trouble.  But, if something like that can control the destiny of America, I wonder if it really matters in the long run, because it shows that the people of America have lost their souls, and cannot make the decision which is best for America because they are too absorbed in who is going to give them their next handout.  In the past, when America’s core values were on the line, Americans rose up and did the right thing.  Now, when the President’s office is filled by a man who is clearly sworn to “transform America” into something between apathetic self-indulgent dummies and outright Islamic slaves, America slinked off to a dark cave somewhere and voted with eyes closed.  As someone once said: “America always gets the government it deserves”.  This time, though, Americans are going to face a future which cannot be anything but bleak despair; they just don’t know it yet.  The choice was made between a good, honest man and a usurper who has said many times that he wishes to destroy what America has meant to the world for almost a century.  Imagine how different the world would be now if a man like Obama had been president in 1941 or 1962 or ???.  We’d all be communist or Nazi; as it is, we are destined to become another socialist failure.  When the world needed leadership and strength, America stood up and gave it.  Now, what will the world expect from America?  Cowardice.  Confusion.  A blank stare.  And who will be there to step into the void left when Obama is finished tearing America apart, “death by its own hand”?  Obama’s buddies, the Muslim Brotherhood.  Watch and see, and make sure you prepare as soon as you can for the disasters which lie ahead.  Whether you believe in prophecy or just in what you see with your own eyes, the future does not look bright for America.  And Mr. Christie will stand right there with Mr. Obama as one of the people who tipped America onto its back and stepped on its face, leaving the way open for people who are much more dangerous to America than Bin Laden ever was.  I am not ready to give up but I sure as heck will not rest until I have prepared my family for what is to come.

    I find myself wondering, how can a man like Christie, who seemed to be aware of so much when he was even being touted as a possible candidate for president by the conservatives, be so oblivious to the effects of his slobbering all over Obama and praising him on national TV so much that he had to know it would affect the election?  Did he do it on purpose, out of an inflated ego that wanted to be THE ONE who controlled the election, garnering favor for himself with one whom he thought would win?  Or was he just so selfish and self-absorbed that he allowed his long-time little boy wish to entertain a president to overwhelm him and set this country on a course which may even see its complete demise?  Or was he just plain stupid?

    For want of a nail, a shoe was lost.  For want of a shoe, a horse was lost.  For want of a horse, …….

    I think all these requiems for the GOP death is just a demoralizing tactic to demolish conservatism. Almost half of the country is still votes for GOP. The ground game of democrats was superior plus Romney was bruised by other GOP contenders and had 2 month to fix his imagine. Obama had 4 years of media praise and comedy show outings and long time and tons of money to mug Romney
    In the end, it doesn’t matter what Christi said or rape comments. There will be always someone saying something, how are you going to regulate free speech not to let it happen? It is all about the spin.
    Democrats had a plan to turn red into blue. Meanswhile, us on the east coast, pretty large number of conservatives (if you look, certain counties in NY are fully red even Long Island was 50/50 for Romney), are left without support (probably our fault too). Why is there not a single Romney headquarters? So the largest states are left to the left. What are you gonna do about electoral college? They can get their numbers to 270 without too much trouble. So GOP is not spending any money in NY or California, very stupid, very stupid.
    Be more cunning, speak softly and carry a big stick. Why such a loud support of Israel? What has Israel done for US? American Jews are the liberalism-its brains and money. And is it that hard to oppose president on facts, why the need to say “to keep him one term president”. Yes, there are many things are wish to be one-term but you don’t say it at least not on a level of speakers.  Gees, you are almost a step away from president, learn to speak, gees

    Chris Christie had nothing to do with the outcome of the election.  We now have a voter base out there that is too stupid and doesn’t understand common sense and math.  We are now in the television generation to which Comedy Central and American Idol influence more people than local, civic and state leaders.  People are so disengaged and do not understand how we came to power, how to sustain power or how to expand power.  These are the same idiots that spit on our military and then bitch about our national security.  The same idiots that want fiscal responsibility but want to raise the debt limit and have all their programs paid for.  The same idiots that want the unknown of Obamacare and the utopian stupidity to perpetuate when all other forms of socialist medicine have failed.  The same idiots that want a chance to accumulate wealth, but then turn around and vilify those who are already wealthy.  The same idiots that vote for somebody’s words and disregard their actions when voting again.  The same idiots that ask to feed the homeless but never go downtown to do it themselves.  The same idiots that ask for more taxes, but never willingly donate or accept their taxes to be raised and the same idiots that feel entitled to a job but have no skills that would be beneficial to businesses for hiring them.  Accountability and responsibility are now the minority and the model for Europe is now fast tracking the US into a depression we will never rebound from.  I pray for a revolution and will gladly accept it on all fronts.  My children are screwed if I do nothing as all of yours will be to.

    Have pity on strtlk, the little fool has a sickness that he just can’t seem to get under control.

    It’s appearing more and more that Valerie Jarrett is the hand behind the puppet… even more so than Axelrod.  We’ve got our first female President and didn’t even know it.  It’s coming out that she’s the one who actually made the final decision about OBL, about the lack of response to Benghazi and also had a hand in Fast and Furious.  Can you imagine if the Media did even half the job they did on Bush?  Obama would have been impeached long before the election.  But the Media sits on everything happily smiling as the USA gets flushed down the toilet.  For the first time in my life I’m actually experiencing the cold chill of fear…. and that’s saying something.

    Obama showed up for 6 hours for his photo ops & then went & partied in Las Vegas but the media forgot to report that. Staten Island went without ANY HELP for 5 days & the only reason they got any at all is because Fox News slammed FEMA & Obama over it. After that Obama was campaigning & couldn’t have cared less what was happening in NY & NJ.

    I called them, “Fat Man and Little Boy” named after the Atomic Bombs in WW II. After watching Fat Man almost implode his love for OWE-BOW-MA (little Boy), I knew Romney would take a hit.  And then that 2-bit POS Little Boy got the hell out of Jersey and got back on the trail leaving behind a coast filled with trauma and death.  Remind you of anything else?  BENGHAZI!

    Christie needs to put the fork down and learn a thing or two about politics.

    Thank you for such well spoken commentary.  Unfortunately, I believe that preaching to people like Perez is a complete and utter waste of time.  Their minds cannot comprehend what is going to happen to ALL us on one level or another and neither do they care.  They have sold our freedom for freebies and we will all suffer.  To be honest, I have completely lost all hope after a good and decent man was defeated for evil.  God help us.

    Everything prior to Christie’s azzkissing pointed to Romney. After Christie’s brown nosing, there was no recovery for Romney. So yes, Mr. Azzkisser Christie, you did change the course of the election. Quit being the RHINO you’ve proven yourself to be and just come out of the closet declaring your TRUE party – MARXIST!!!

    For the record, I don’t know Chris Christie and I don’t live in his state. I watch his daily briefings right now as my wife has family there still without power. I saw the comments he made about Obama and saw them in the context in which he made them. I think everyone who REALLY wants to be part of the solution needs to move on and work on the real problems facing the Republicans.

    What I see is a governor who is heads-down trying to help his state recover from FrankenSandy and get ready for winter. 350,000 households still don’t have power due to FrankenSandy and about the same number lost power earlier this week due to the snow. Many people in New Jersey are in shock right now. They have lost everything and many of the others still don’t have power. President Obamanation went to New Jersey and did his job for a couple of days. Christie acknowledged it as he should have. So what.

    If people want to say that event (and Christie’s refusal to go to a last minute political rally in Pennsylvania) cost Romney the election, I say they are making excuses. The Democrats blew the Republicans away because Romney wasn’t a strong candidate, he debated poorly, and the Republicans seriously-suck at marketing. Chris Christie is just a convenient scapegoat. Leave him alone and let him do his job. He seems to be doing everything he can to help the people of his state. He is still running on low sleep, and last I knew, his own house still doesn’t have power. Unlike most of the Republicans that are bitching this week, Governor Christie still has a job to do.

    As for hurting his chance to run for President, that’s BS. Christie is perfect for New Jersey but our country would never elect him because he is too candid. We only elect slick talkers and if you’ve ever watched Chris Christie, he is anything but a slick talker. Bottom line: I think the Republicans should leave Christie alone and go work on their real problems.

    Are you people kidding me! Listen, Christie showed principle and non-partisanship, which allowed him to cooperate with the political opposition in time of crisis. This is what we need right now. To put country before party. And you all here are chastising him for doing something that must be commended. Why? Because apparently you care more about punishing the guy for not being a good propaganda soldier but a good, caring and practical leader. Dudes! Don’t do more damage to your party! It’s already in shambles. Learn from Christie. Who knows? I might even vote for him in 2016! Seriously! We need compromise more than ever, and here’s a man who is not afraid to work for America and not for the GOP establishment. And there’s Glenn in another of his heinous posts attacking the GOP establishment. WTF!!? Is he that stupid?!

    I prayed for him to be elected when he ran. He is a “left wing nut”. I would never be for him again. As for the people who were hit with Sandy, if they used a photo op of yomama to vote for him, remember this
    God does answer prayers but He also punishes for some prayers in the end. Lay in the mess. Yomama, Christie, Fema and the unions threw all of you under the train. 
    They sent back 600 electric workers from Alabama because they weren’t union. Now the mayor and gov. of NYC are crying that they don’t have electricity.
    MORE union dirty work. They put the good of the people after union status.

I would never, never, never vote for this screaming, out-of-control man who turned his back on Romney at the 11th hour. He would run over his own mother for personal gain. He was also angry he didn’t get the V.P. nod, he is very emotionally immature, screams at people in the streets (YouTube), like the teacher in NJ. Also, let’s face reality, this man is a walking myocardial infarction waiting to happen. No man this large is able to function long in any role effectively. I say Condi Rice all the way in 2016. There is class, brilliance, and she has few enemies…

    The odd thing about it was, Obama really didn’t do that much for the hurricane victims. Romney did far more, and there were reports of Mormon volunteers working to clear storm drains, downed trees, etc, and this never got any coverage.

    The Republican Party blew this election period. I was and Alternate Delegate to the RNC. I watched as Boehner read from the teleprompter, “the ayes have it”. All preplanned. Shoved through rule changes which toast any future grass roots in the RP. They conned Ron Paul out of delegates state after state and then rammed through rules that will carve delegate stealing into stone for ever more. They literally kidnapped the guy from VA by not letting him off of the bus he was riding to the RNC. I know because I was there. Ron Paul would have defeated Obama. The Republican Party just handed us four more of Obama and flushed this country right down the toilet. Republican Party is as dead as dead can get.

    I agree with you.
    We all LOVE Christie when he is “screaming” the truth about Obama, education,etc.  We love that he is “in your face” honest….We love that he calls it as he sees it…In this case, the president (for whatever selfish reason) responded to a disaster in NJ and Christie was “himself”…why do we love him when he’s brutally honest going against Obama and hate him when he’s honest in saying “thanks” when Obama is responding to the disaster… Either you appreciate Christie’s HONESTY ALL OF THE TIME or you just want him to play party politics and behave like every other lousy Repbulican and Democrat in office. I despise what Obama is doing to this country, but Christie demonstrated an ability to “reach across the aisle” in dealing with the president. That’s what “reaching across the aisle” looks like, folks…to say “he is dead to me” to a potentially great leader because he didn’t reject help from a president we don’t like is ludicrous.  You are part of the problem, not part of the solution in pulling these parties together. If you want change, then civility and 5th grade “he’s not my friend” antics has to STOP with all of us….

  • mich

    Let me start by saying that Governor Chris Christie is by FAR the best New Jersey Governor in the past 70 years. I am not fond of Governor Christie’s gun control views, but he didn’t impose any new gun laws in NJ, yet, stating that we have enough gun laws already. I believe he is for a .50 cal rifle ban, but nothing has been done by him yet. With regard to Governor Christie as a President? My hope would be that he becomes a Ronald Reagan. President Reagan, a one time Democrat, had to be moderate to win a liberal state like California, as Christie is with NJ. But, once President Reagan one the election, his conservative beliefs shined though, and turned the country around from the destruction Jimmy Carter gave us.
    The destruction Obama has done makes Jimmy Carter seem like an angel, so it will have to be one tough SOB to fix this nation; maybe Christie is the guy. At least he stands up for himself, not like John McCain or Romney. The big issue? Will he get the nomination. Too many republicans want to focus on social issues, like gay marriage or abortion. Republicans need to absolutely table those issues, making obamacare, the economy, and the failed foreign policy the big issues.

    And who WILL you vote for? Hillary? I’m a very conservative, 62 yr. old Christian grandmother. I’m taking my changes that Christie knew EXACTLY what he was doing in his so called “friendship” with Obama. I live in Texas. I love Rick Perry. But do you remember what happened when Perry went to the Fed for help from the raging wildfires and drought. Oh, Sorry. We just don’t have the funds to help you (or you don’t meet the criteria). We all want politics to be above board and honorable. But that’s not reality sometimes. I think Christie knows how to get what he needs for his people, which will include the whole country if he gets the nomination and beats Hillary. Of course, as conservatives, we want very conservative leaders to represent us. But this country is so divided that we need to face reality and elect those who most closely represent us. Do you think that would be Hillary? Or Chris? I don’t want to compromise ANY of my beliefs. But I also don’t want to have all of those beliefs trashed because I was so determined not to have to compromise even one of them.
