Chris Christie slow cooks our goose

Chris Christie slow cooks our goose

Chris Christie all but hands Cory Booker a Senate seat on a silver platter, not giving Republicans a chance to mount what would have been a tough fight in 2014, and it’s cool and he’s a media star.

From John Sexton at,

Chris Christie is running in 2016. This clip shows why he, unlike the two prior GOP nominees, can win. Can u dig it?

In this age of low information voters, you don’t win elections without being able to do this sort of thing. What exactly is this sort of thing? It’s being a celebrity and having a winning sense of humor about yourself.

Add to that, make sure you are cool in ways that help Democrats. It’s the only way to get on late night television without being the target.

Doing these appearances just reinforces the problem.  It was true when Mitt Romney and Rick Perry did it, and it’s true with Chris Christie.

The media is loving you only when you obey their political preferences.  Go on these shows, by all means, but without pandering.

You think you are slow jamming, but you’re just slow cooking our goose.

I have nothing but scorn for Christie, but the idea Republicans ever had some chance to win the seat in 2014 is a joke.

The last Republican elected to the Senate in New Jersey was Clifford Case in 1972.

    Any good will I had for Christie he killed off when he did NOT appoint a Repub to that seat.

    In 2012 North Carolina elected a Republican governor and legislature, both houses – for the first time in over a century.

    Tell me you know in advance you can’t do something and I’ll tell you you’re absolutely correct.

No doubt fat boi is running in 2016. Big question is IN WHICH PARTY?

Why don’t they call it what it is, blowing obama.


the plural of goose is geese, not gooses.

Wait. Did you do that on purpose?

This is nauseating.

OH tank you The Blond Bomber for bringing Crispy to National Limelight
OH Thank you mitts for making Crispy the prime speaker at the RNC while condemning the Tea Party
Oh Thank you The Establishment for greasing Crispy sled

Professor: I grew up in the sixties and the Peter Paul and Mary music in the sidebar is dredging up fond memories! Regardless of their politics, they were a great trio. Thanks.

    My dad told me the reason they broke up was because Paul and Mary were giving Peter the business and Peter was getting sore. And everybody knows you can’t do business with a sore Peter!!!

Now, now, please stop with all this negativity, to quote Hawkeye’s pal. Still, it’s very apt, especially since few of us Anglos can speak Spanlish!

In this age of low information voters, you don’t win elections without being able to do this sort of thing. What exactly is this sort of thing? It’s being a celebrity and having a winning sense of humor about yourself.

Palin can do that, and she’s quick with sharp responses. And before anyone says she’ll be crucified if she even thinks of running, remember she’s already been there, done that and survived quite nicely.

If we get stuck with Hillary v. Christie in 2016, it will mean everything has failed. If Hillary is still viable, much will have failed.

If We can’t bring up Cruz instead of lefty union snuggler large man Christie … the goose is not cooked, but rather Road Kill.

Cruz is a smart Harvard cookie. Hillary is old bad news, failed Sec of State, with left over bad ties to Chinese infiltrators, and a Benghazi hangover.

Every republican RINO needs to be primaried and no money to the republican party unless they depose and remove the current leadership (Boehner, McConnel, and ilk)from any position of authority.

As for christie, Mr. Big Gulp, well, stick a pin in him and watch the lard leak out.

Billy Bunter at the fairground won’t sell .

Let’s see, we have the Tea Party and then we have a bunch of RINOs. Doesn’t sound like a winning team to me.

If the GOP is to survive it had better wake up to reality. People do not want more of the same and that’s all the RINO wing of the party is offering.

Looks like a democrat win to me in 2016…

2012 showed that disaffected conservatives can and will sit out even a presidential election. Despite the fact that establishment GOP best efforts in 2008 & 2012 produced losses and Tea Party/conservative efforts produced massive victories in 2010, the GOP appears determined to take the TP/conservative base for granted.

Unless a scandal (or some unforeseeable event) knocks her out, our next president will be Hillary Clinton. That her time as SoS was a miserable failure doesn’t dim her chances one bit. America no longer proceeds on merits. She has everything Obama needed: campaign funds, minority status, and the media.

From the basis of the respective scientific disciplines, I used to formally debate believers in psychics, ghosts, UFOs, aliens, bigfoot, etc., and debating liberals and/or the politically ignorant is pretty much the same. They do not come to their political beliefs by virtue of facts, history, logic, or reason. Therefore, they are not moved by facts, history, logic, or reason, which is all a conservative can offer by way of argument.

Any good will I had for Christie he killed off when he did NOT appoint a Repub to that seat.

For all the BS excuses that his apologists gave, it comes down to this; with critical votes coming up in the Senate where we are in desperate need of every vote against cloture, he knowingly gave away a Republican [even if anyone he would appoint would be a RINO] seat to a Leftist. He is the enemy.

Henry Hawkins | June 15, 2013 at 9:11 pm

If Clinton remains viable in 2016, she will win.

Believe it or not, I think you are a flaming optimist. Look at what has come out in the last two weeks. Look at the private army Obama has, funded by the government. Look at the endemic vote fraud that almost surely tipped the election. Look at the supposed “opposition” party acting more like a wing of the Democrats.

Obama ain’t leaving office, at least not in January 2017. We are not going to have an honest election every again under the current system. There are implications for the future.

Way too true Sabotai.

Considering the permanent government is actively involved in both perpetuation and expandsion of their sinecures we will always be on the the receiving end of such intimidation and retribution these neo fascist hacks can hand out.

It’s all proceeding as T Woodrow Wilson has planned.

That fatass tub of lard will never make it out of Joisey alive. My only donation to him if he runs would be a box of the heaviest, lard and sugar encrusted doughnuts ever created.
