Really, were this award around a little longer, Christie would have won it for his bromance announcing photo op of a hug, gifted to the Bamster just days before the Presidential Election. New York was just as devastated by that Hurricane, and yet all of the New York Democrat Politicos running things there told Barack that he was not welcome in their state. So, with that one action, Governor Christie not only proved that he was perfectly comfortable kissing the canvas, he let us all know that those kisses would be of the wet french variety. What hurt about that particular dive most of all, and the list of things that peeved us is long indeed, was that at one time, most of the nation’s conservatives still had youtube videos of Chris Christie standing up and leading the fight against the run amok union leadership with tough as nails sound bytes fresh on their minds.
Now we have something new. Now we get a Chris Christie setting up his national organization and fundraising effort, obviously on a trajectory in which he’ll be running for President in 2016, tell the Conservative base of his supposed party to sit down and shut up. It’s the old, “we can’t win unless we totally capitulate on our small government values,” meme that we love so much. This meme comes in the form of a shot leveled directly at Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
What the heck, this strategy has proven itself so successful in the past, why not give it just one more chance? I mean, what have we got to lose, besides all of our basic freedoms? As I alluded to before, it’s not just that Christie has chosen to dive all of a sudden that has us all upset, it’s that he had gone to great lengths to prove to us that he could win, and then decided to plant his face into the muslin floor. For the better part of two years, we had, at long last, a Republican who was willing to stand up and make the case for what we believed in, as small government conservatives. In a world where such signs, however fleeting, of political courage were so scarce, Chris Christie became the overnight sensation of almost every righty blog. His youtube clips went viral, and such snippets became the stuff of legend, referred to as Chris Christie porn.
Sure, there was the odd warning from those who were familiar with the North Eastern brand of Republican Politics, telling us that the big government version of Chris Christie would one day shine through, but heck, unquenched thirst for those who’ve been wandering in the desert since 1994 is like that. It has been that long since anyone, (Newt Gingrich was the last,) has been willing to state the case for smaller government, and do so without apology. Having someone finally willing to stand up and make an argument, and to do so cogently, without reservation, and with passion, gave us the hope we needed to believe that returning us to a representative republic in which individual liberty would once again be immune to the tyranny of a majority willing to grant itself lordship over our lives was now possible. So, when Chris Christie gave us some rather overt signals that he in fact would be brandishing the Democrat Lite brand of Republican positions hence forth, that fall was even greater.
His win this month is for his war on Conservatism, or as he labels it, “the dangerous streak of Libertarianism found in both parties.” He has singled out Rand Paul and Ted Cruz as the symbols of his bane, but really it is you and I, the voting base of the Republican Party. Once again, we are told that our votes are necessary, but America would be better off if our voices simply remained silent.
Something else needs to be mentioned here in regards to the sickening man crush Chris Christie seems to have on Barack Obama, and that is this. Don’t try to convince me with specious arguments, they only serve to piss me off. Yes, many of the Obama programs are continuations of Bush programs, but that does not make them equal by any stretch of the imagination. While it is true that Fast and Furious was based upon an operation known as Wide Receiver, their applications were wholly different. Wide Receiver saw a hand full of weapons with LoJack Technology being sold to unsuspecting criminals, so that their eventual encampments could be raided with the aid of the Mexican authorities. Fast and Furious saw massive amounts of high powered weaponry gifted to those same drug cartels so that the ensuing violence could be blamed on our Second Amendment. Similarly, the Patriot Act under President Bush using the lowered standard for wire tapping warrants saw our security services picking individuals upon whom to spy, and acted appropriately. That same program under Obama saw the government collecting meta data on every breathing man, woman, and child, in our nation today. Just to put the cherry on top of how completely ineffective this practice is in terms of preventing terrorism, our nation failed to prevent the activities of two teen aged snots who were specifically pointed out to us by a foreign government who had seen fit to warn us not once, twice, nor even thrice, but four times.
(Scary thought: What that meta data will be useful for however is this. One day, we’ll call it 15 years from now, when you need a bypass operation let’s say, The death panel overlord, working with the full authority of an operational and weaponized Affordable Care Act, will use that meta data to ascertain your eating and living habits gleaned from your grocery store, drug store, debit card, purchases over the past 15 years to determine just how deserving you are of any treatment. When that happens, think of Chris Christie. How about this? When you campaign for a candidate not approved of by the state, or an issue that is against the desires of those in charge, that meta data can be combed for a whole bevy of transgressions which will be used to blackmail you into compliance. When that happens, think of Chris Christie.)
