Chris Christie enemy #1

Filed under Barack Obama, Elections 2012, Progressives at November 7th, 2012 - 2:00 pm

Mitt Romney narrowly lost to Barack Obama last night. As I have been remarking on the blog for several months about my amazement how nothing effects Obama.  While conservatives got themselves worked up over Fast & Furious and Benghazi, the American public didn’t care.  I wrote many times nothing hurts Obama politically, but the coup de grace to Romney’s chances was an act of nature.

Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeast last week and this put the Presidential campaign on pause while Obama did photo ops showing him in charge. Then Chris Cristie gave Romney the kiss of death by praising Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy and then he inviting Obama for photo ops. This stopped Mitt Romney’s momentum and shifted the election to Obama. The media covered up the botched response and ignored the disaster in NY.

Chris Cristie is one of the reasons why we lost as his butt kissing of Obama convinced low informed voters that Obama cared.  For this betrayal, we must destroy Cristie’s political career and I call on conservatives to donate to whoever his Democratic opponent is.  If  Newark Mayor Cory Booker runs, I will donate money as I am dedicated to defeating Chris Cristie in 2013.

I will write more about Mayor Cory Booker later this week.

    Exactly! Christie praising Obama was all anybody saw about Hurricane Sanday after Landfall. It was in all the papers, on all the news shows. It was PR that Obama couldn’t buy. Christie isn’t an idiot. He knew what he was doing. He should have no political future in the GOP. None.

    He like all people running now, must be primaried.

    Also, it isn’t that the people don’t care about Benghazi or fast and furious. It’s that people don’t know. The media blackout has been nearly complete. I’ve asked a lot of people online and in the world about the scandals and they haven’t even heard about them.

    The word isn’t getting out. The media interference is too strong.

    The media isn’t the opposition, they are the enemy, they actively work to destroy the country.

    no. this post is exceptionally lame.

    the #1 culprit in the re-election of the anti-colonialist, America hating obama is the ignorance of the American electorate. there is no excuse for not knowing about Benghazi and F&F. you can blame it on the media and christie (please learn to spell!) all you want but it’s the fault of the complacent, apathetic Americans who failed to bother to even TRY to stay informed and who, for decades, have let left wing nuts educate our children (they control our schools) and loot our treasuries.

    True. Most people don’t Care enough to inform themselves. They’ll at most watch the alphebet soup nightly news and consider themselves “informed”. They think that it doesn’t directly affect them. They are wrong, of course, as they will learn when everything collapses, but until then they are happy as a pig in shit. Which is an entirely apt metaphore for what they actually are.

    From your downthread post. I think it needs to be here too.

    Oh lookie here! FEMA has deserted Staten Island ahead of the bad weather.

    Just packed up a skedaddled.

    And a set of buses which served as a pair of warming centers at the site for the past several days were missing, according to non-FEMA volunteers who continued to hand out supplies from a nearby building despite the storm.

    Volunteers at a nearby donation distribution center said the buses vanished on Wednesday.

    “FEMA packed up and left,” said Louis Giraldi, 47, a volunteer handing out cleaning supplies to victims.

    “We don’t know where they are, so there’s nothing here but us.”

    so? it’s NOT the media’s responsibility to inform you or me or anyone. the new media includes old AM radio, the internet, conservative news magazines -- ALL of which are AVAILABLE to everyone and one of which is FREE.

    Online has become too segmented. Most “independents” don’t even know what they are looking for. Most webhubs are owned by the MSM and direct people to the exact same talking points over and over again.

    Go to other peoples homes, see what they set as their homepages. Most have yahoo, google, bing, abc, nbc, cbs, AOL, you name it.

    If you don’t know what you’re looking for you can’t look for it. If it isn’t mentioned on the nightly news you don’t know you are looking for it.

    We know what we are looking for because we are immersed in this culture, the same way a dem knows his talking points will be in his email bright and early every morning.

    The mush middle types don’t know this. They don’t know there is a conservative blogosphere, they don’t know there is an alternative media. Hell most don’t become aware of anything unless they accidentally happen to go to AM radio and turn on Rush, Hannity, or whomever. Then they have to be willing to break themselves of a lifetime of MSM and public school brainwashing long enough to actually listen to whats being said.

    It is not an easy process and for people to just say “it’s out there, you can find it” does no good for anyone.

    Think back to how you got here. Or how you even became conservative in the first place. If you weren’t raised that way it wasn’t an easy process, was it?

    Chris Christie gave Obama momentum. He is responsible for Obama’s win. A week ago Romney was heading toward victory. Then Christie back-stabbed him. This helped Obama with low info voters and tipped the election to him.

    Here’s a story from my life that will put things in perspective. My ex-wife was one of these mushy middle people. She’s also a bit mentally unbalanced and has now gone full bore lesbian who supports gay marriage.

    She called me last night in tears because O was winning. Because of everything I taught her through our marriage she was able to look beyond the medias bullshit and see exactly why this was so bad for the country. She doesn’t listen to talk radio, she doesn’t go to conservative sites. But, she was able to make an informed decision based solely on my patience and teaching through the years.

    Most of the middle don’t get that. They get one side or the other telling them that they’re idiots for not taking a side.


  42. 42 | November 7, 2012 2:50 pm

    Things aren’t all bad:

    Republicans gained six seats each in the state House and Senate Tuesday, giving the party more than the “super majority” they sought in both chambers, according to complete but unofficial election returns. By controlling two-thirds of the seats in both chambers for the first time since the Reconstruction era, Republicans will have a quorum and could continue in session even if all Democrats walk out. The two-thirds ‘super majority’ also allows united Republicans to suspend normal rules and instantly pass legislation.

    We have a Republican governor, too. It’ll be interesting to see what gets done with this. Like I said earlier, we went 59-39 for Romney. I live in a very Red State. Pity there aren’t more like it.

    Ferb, if you’re just going to throw talking points you might as well shut up.

    The fact is, yes they should watch Fox news, the same way we watch the regular networks. I know it’s a hard stretch for you, but Fox news isn’t actually much different than the standard nightly news. The only real conservative thought is with their commentators. There’s not a lot of bleed over between the news section and the talking head section.

    So please just get over yourself and go masturbate to your O poster. Or post something of substance. As it is you are just wasting peoples time and energy in a “look at me fest” and I have a hard time believing anyone has a life so pitiful that they have to go online looking for negative attention just to reinforce their failing self-worth.

    There is a huge percentage of the populace that doesn’t follow politics/economics at all. It’s off the radar for them until it’s splashed in their faces by the MSM, so they munch on whatever crap they’re fed without realizing that there’s a huge menu to choose from.

    Harry Reid wants to get rid of the filibuster now. Because it’s been “abused”. Like when he was filibustering Bush’s judges? I said back then that if the tables were turned the Democrats wouldn’t hesitate to use the “nuclear” option. No one listened to me. There can be no compromise with progressives. You need to attack them at every oppertunity. The GOP’s problem is that they are still stuck in the “Loyal Opposition” mode, while the Democrats are waging total war. I’ve said before, Politics is War. The Democrats get this. The Republicans do not.

    @ EBL:

    I do not believe that. There are lots of stats claiming turnout was down, but the polling places were jammed.

    I believe that the electronic voting machines were gamed on a scale which beggars the imagination. And, since SEIU was the maintainer and installer of these machines, I think it is clear who they were gamed for. I believe that the machines were programmed not only to add votes on a particular ratio, but to subtract them on a particular ratio. I cannot begin to prove it, of course.

    The ironic thing is that Obama will campaign against Chris Christie during the next NJ election for governor. Fat boy does not realize that the left will use you (like they did McCain) when it is in their interest and then shit on you later when it is convenient for them.

    Has anyone here ever listened to a new caller on Rush? It’s an incredible experience (same with Hannity). Every story is almost the same. However they wound up listening, they had to listen several times before the rust started to get knocked off. Most hadn’t heard of anything that was being said on the program, most had avoided listening because they had been told for years that the AM radio people were bigoted racists, most were totally in the dark.

    Do Rush and Hannity call them idiots and kick them off the show? No, they thank them, and then patiently tell them what else they can do to help.

    That’s how it works, it’s a slow process, but to just write off the country as a bunch of idiots is a poor way to go about it.

    And he’ll be able to do it, too, as long as it’d done on the opening day of the new session.

    All it takes is 51 votes for rule changes on that day. Any other day, it takes 60.

    He’s going to have 55 votes, so he can change whatever he likes.

    I believe that the electronic voting machines were gamed on a scale which beggars the imagination. And, since SEIU was the maintainer and installer of these machines, I think it is clear who they were gamed for. I believe that the machines were programmed not only to add votes on a particular ratio, but to subtract them on a particular ratio. I cannot begin to prove it, of course.

    It’s coming out now that most of the fraud was coming from dem districts were votes may have been changed from Romney to O. Dem districts are reporting far more votes than on the ground says were actually there. Most of the republican districts were not tampered with at all. Vote tallies match up pretty well with the on the ground totals. But the dem ones are supposedly way off.

    I don’t know. I had a bad feeling about this election for one reason and one reason only

    The polls were too close. From the beginning. With the economy like it is, even lo-info-voters are aware something is wrong. This should have been a slam-dunk for ANYBODY BUT OBAMA.

    That bugged me for a long time -- so I wasn’t completely surprised by the result last nite.

    Of course! The ultimate answer of the Left. Tell me, do you really relish the world going back to the way it was before the rise of the American Superpower? That’s what will happen when America falls. It’ll be back to the way things were in the run-up to World War I. Lots of fun in Europe. And I am against spending one drop of American blood to pull you all out of the fire you’ve brought down on your own heads. After we finished off Hitler, we should have pulled out and left you to the tender mercies of Stalin. I honestly don’t care if the Muslims start cutting off heads in the town square in Eurabia.

    He ran a spirited campaign and I am convinced that he was our best hope to win. Obama was and is a unique candidate who was more about symbolism then substance. A Santorum, who would have attacked relentlessly, would have been destroyed. This was 2004 in reverse. Frankly I do not think that most Americans would even care about a few hundred Mexicans and two Americans being killed because of Fast & Furious. Sad but true.

    Christie has the same kind of weird crush on Springsteen that

    He goes to all of his concerts & the Boss would not appear at

    You mean folks like Warren Buffet who panders to Obama & who says he’s not being tax enough but yet owes over 4 billion dollars in unpaid taxes & hides his money in offshore accounts?

    Folks like Bruce Springsteen who own 800 acre estates & pay no property taxes because they grow a few grapes, hire one part-time gardener & then write it off as a farm?

    Keep in mind that a lot the very people you want to close loopholes on are the rich liberals in Hollywood, the music industry, the news media who the Dems have no intention of taking money from other than the contributions they seek every election cycle. The rich liberals who have no intention of paying more than what they do now. They’ll just hide their money offshore or hire attorneys to find or create more loopholes.

    When they say they want to close tax loopholes on millionaires & billionaires make no mistake about it what they really mean is they want to raise taxes on the middle-class & the poor & if you want to continue believing those lies go right on ahead because at this point I’m all for as much financial misery as the Dems can dish out.

    No, it’s not about “social fairness,” or any other such nonsense. The issue is preventing the country from financial collapse. North Korea is “fair,” but I don’t think you’d want to live there.

    And here’s a hint: Buffett lied. He does not pay a lower effective tax rate than his secretary (not that it matters if it were true). His secretary doesn’t pay anywhere near the percentage he claimed.

    And Buffett himself is a major tax cheat. He currently owes the IRS over a billion dollars in unpaid taxes.

    closing tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires

    You mean folks like Warren Buffet who panders to Obama & who says he’s not being tax enough but yet owes over 4 billion dollars in unpaid taxes & hides his money in offshore accounts?
    Folks like Bruce Springsteen who own 800 acre estates & pay no property taxes because they grow a few grapes, hire one part-time gardener & then write it off as a farm?
    Keep in mind that a lot the very people you want to close loopholes on are the rich liberals in Hollywood, the music industry, the news media who the Dems have no intention of taking money from other than the contributions they seek every election cycle. The rich liberals who have no intention of paying more than what they do now. They’ll just hide their money offshore or hire attorneys to find or create more loopholes.
    When they say they want to close tax loopholes on millionaires & billionaires make no mistake about it what they really mean is they want to raise taxes on the middle-class & the poor & if you want to continue believing those lies go right on ahead because at this point I’m all for as much financial misery as the Dems can dish out.

    yes, why not tax Warren Buffet and Bruce Springsteen and all these rich Hollywood liberals more?
    I think even Mitt Romney is willing to pay more than 12% tax.

    I’m convinced a majority of Jews would vote for Adolf Eichmann if he ran on the Democrat ticket:

    President Obama’s support among Jewish voters has remained relatively steady from 2008, exit polls show.

    National exit polls released Tuesday show Obama capturing 70 percent of the Jewish vote, versus 30 percent for Mitt Romney.

    Obama hasn’t quite called for the expulsion of Jews from Judea and Samaria, but he has skirted the edge of that. He’ll leave actual calls for ethnic cleansing to his homies in the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

    A 70/30 split is better than in the past, but not nearly good enough.

    As I have said in the past, most Jews in the US are “secular.” As such, they are terrified by any actual evidence of belief in religion; were the Orthodox Jews a political force in the US, they would unhesitatingly vote against them, and they vote against Republicans in part because the Republicans support the largely-Orthodox “settlers” in the West Bank.

    “Secular” Jews have substituted allegiance to the Democratic Party for their allegiance to their religion and heritage. It is a bitterly true joke that Reform Judaism is “the Democratic Party with holidays.” The one thing that “secular” Jews retain of their heritage is the memory of their grandparents’ or great-grandparents’ actual oppression by Christians in the Old Country, or experience of antisemitism in the US in the early 20th century—and, as the Republicans have been identified in the media as the “party of religious Christians,” they reflexively vote against it. The memory of long-ago persecutions is a substitute for perception of modern reality, because it is the only “heritage connection” they maintain.

    Time & time again he’s asked clear questions & refuses to answer them only to parrot some left-wing one sentence talking point he got out of his in-box from Media Matters or Organizing for America.

    he may not be vitriolic or excessively combative but not answering questions by making a well formulated argument & utilizing constructive debate is becoming quite cumbersome & headache inducing.

    Blacks were largely Republican until LBJ started giving them big welfare checks and government cheese. FDR had started the process; there’s an old anti-Roosevelt couplet that has FDR saying to Eleanor, “You kiss the n*ggers, and I’ll kiss the Jews/And we’ll stay in the White House as long as we choose.” But it was LBJ that really put the blacks on the gubmint gravy train.

    Jews got on board in the ’30s, for three reasons; first, Roosevelt recognized unions. Second, the government jobs were available to Jews at a time when private industry often did not hire them. Third, with the start of WWII, it was believed that the Democrats were fighting the antisemitic Nazis. After the war, it was the Republicans who went after Communists—and a lot of Jews were, sadly, Communists. The Rosenberg prosecution still resonates today with “progressive” Jews—never mind that they were guilty. But that, again, relates to my mention upthread of how “secular” Jews hold onto inherited memories of persecution as their sole connection with their heritage.

    I very much agreed with this piece at PJM.

    As We Go Marching

    Thus we are fast becoming a nation of juvenile beggars, of sated, jaded, cynical, greedy teet-suckers: tax-feeding, food-stamp-using, unemployment-check-cashing, free-abortion-demanding, snarky-Facebook-posting, race-card-playing, individual-responsibility-shirking panhandlers. The winner of this game is always the guy who offers the most “free” goods, even if–and here’s the real kicker–he doesn’t deliver them. It’s one thing to vote for the guy who robs Peter to pay Paul, provided you’re Paul; it’s quite another to re-elect someone who has robbed both Peter and Paul and has paid no one. The first choice is rational, if immoral; the second is both irrational and immoral, and a sign not of a slippery slope but a vertical drop.

    But that, again, relates to my mention upthread of how “secular” Jews hold onto inherited memories of persecution as their sole connection with their heritage.

    I believe that. A dear friend with whom I grew up (though he’s now a San Fran liberal) is exactly that person. Though he’s Jewish on his mother’s side (His father is Catholic) he went to Catholic High School with me but now that he’s in SFO he went through the “persecuted Jew” phase, constantly lecturing me and wearing a permanent chip on his shoulder. I finally had to remind me that I had known him since he was 10, grew up in the same Jewish neighborhood with him and didn’t appreciate his insinuations. I didn’t speak to him for some two yeas after that episode, though we’re back on very good terms now.

    BTW, I think those “inherited memories of persecution” cause them to have an unwieldy chip on their shoulders, as well. Case in point would be Barack Obama.

    she had only one blockage, it is fixed. the heart has great collateral circulation. it was excellent luck to have this at a young age, in a level 1 hospital, and have world renowned cardiologists and interventionists all working on her within 45 minutes of the event.

    they found out she was inbound to the cath lab and the chief of cardiology and his #2 did the bypass. thge lead residents were on standby on the monitors.

    Destroying the economy
    The “green” ideologues
    Won’t let us use our own oil

    These are the days of budgets that are bungled
    Last year they didn’t do one at all
    What’s in the bills they passed? They don’t know

    Half the time they’re just woolgathering

    It was a dry run
    The religion of the desert
    Failed at killing people on the city street
    And the president
    Won’t name the enemy
    He’d rather have his peeps set up a meet and greet

    These are the days when defense policy’s bungled
    When the administration’s dropped the ball
    They won’t let anyone police the borders—oh, no
    They can’t say “terrorist” at all
    They’ve got an incompetent agency guarding the gateway to the sky
    These are the days when defense policy’s bungled
    With big lies, baby—big lies, big lies, big lies

    A bunch of academic wannabees
    Mucking up the economy
    Every where I turn it seems they want a piece of me
    Deficits skyrocketing
    To the stratospheric range
    And we get the man in the bubble
    Telling us it’s “hope” and “change”

    These are the days of budgets that are bungled
    Bungled starting with Obamacare
    Staccato Teleprompter deep misinformation
    Steady demonization of millionaires and billionaires
    And, baby

    These are the days of budgets that are bungled
    You know the ocean levels didn’t fall
    The way the president sounds like a TV promo
    What of your cash? He wants it all
    He’s got a plan to work in slavery reparations
    You try calling him on it, he’ll lie
    These are the days of budgets that are bungled

    How the hell can you campaign on class warfare and dividing the country up into enough little pieces to cobble together a tiny majority, and then claim that “we’re all in this together”?

    The turnout for this election was drastically low on each side, lower than folks who turned out in ’08 and even the Dems didn’t turn out for him this go ’round like they did for Kerry in ’04.

    Seems lethargy & apathy have set in & folks just aren’t going out to vote, each side either hoping enough of the fired up ones get out there to put them over the top, or either they resigned themselves to just let the other side have it.people have evidently become complacent & are happy wallowing in their malaise as long as they have electricity to fire up the XBOX ,turn on the t.v. to watch Honey Boo Boo & use their EBT cards for cheap snacks.

    I really thought gas prices would factor into this also since the government isn’t giving away free gas cards yet but evidently folks are happy paying over 3 dollars a gallon & it will only go up from here now that more than ever Obama will believe he has a mandate to wage war against the energy sector.

    It blows my mind to think as much enthusiasm as we’ve seen during the campaign for our side as far as the big crowds turning out for R&R didn’t translate to big crowds showing up on election day.

    The scary part is (and I can’t remember where I read it this morning) the Dems may have created enough of a dependent/entitlement base over the last four years that they may not even need the independent vote anymore to win from here on out, that is until their house of cards collapses & the economy really crashes, and it’s inevitable it will.

    I guess most conservatives this go ’round distanced themselves from the Tea Party to not be branded as extremists by the DLSM, but I think it was a bad call since the GOP rode to wave of groundswell support & big wins on the coat-tails of the movement in ’08.

    The Tea Party seems like it’s all but dried up over the last 6 months or so, really not sure what’s going on there.

    How the hell can you campaign on class warfare and dividing the country up into enough little pieces to cobble together a tiny majority, and then claim that “we’re all in this together”?

    You know what’s been bugging me for some time? This attitude among (some) blacks that Obama is some sort of “black avenging angel” who’s going to stick it to the man on behalf of black people everywhere. The hanging out with Jay-Z and Beyonce is specifically designed to constantly remind everyone that he’s black. His race is his main motivator and seems to be central to everything he does.

    This is way past unhealthy, it’s terrifying. We were supposed to have relegated racism to the “dustbin of history”, instead, we just traded white racism for black racism. We are in very, very bad place.

    I certainly trashed him. He was by no means my first choice.

    But I came to recognize that as a “moderate” type, Romney actually was the best chance to beat Obama in a nation that had been stupid enough to elect Obama in the first place; that he really wanted to win; and that he was a fundamentally decent pro-American man with a moral core. And I came to both respect and admire him. He would have made a good President by any objective standard, and he would have stood head and shoulders over the moral midget who currently occupies the Oval Office.

    I do not believe that. There are lots of stats claiming turnout was down, but the polling places were jammed.

    I believe that the electronic voting machines were gamed on a scale which beggars the imagination. And, since SEIU was the maintainer and installer of these machines, I think it is clear who they were gamed for. I believe that the machines were programmed not only to add votes on a particular ratio, but to subtract them on a particular ratio. I cannot begin to prove it, of course.

    I agree turn-out was very brisk but obama won anyway even with his luke-warm rallies and low turn-out to them. Romney had huge turn-outs..it’s mind-boggling.

    Staten Island is the most Republican/conservative borough of New York. Obama is stickin’ it to them, secure in the knowledge that the New York-based media, which despises Staten Island, will cover for him.

R’s are evil..even though they are American’s..there are some people you honestly can’t reach no matter how gentle you are with them they may agree on a point or two but in a day they snap right back to their old opinion even though you have given them facts to think about. They continue to parrot the MSM talking points. I think of them as having rubber-band logic you can stretch it out with un-refutable facts but the next day they ignore those facts and snap back to their old thinking.
