Romney adviser says Chris Christie
“undermined” GOP message

Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 11/7/2012 4:24:30 PM

National Review reporter Robert Costa talks to an unnamed Mitt Romney adviser who indicates there are a lot of hard feeling between Romney’s inner circle and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie over the latter’s embrace of President Obama after Hurricane Sandy: Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, the adviser adds, is persona non grata in Romney’s inner circle. “He went out of his way to embrace the president during the final week of the campaign,” the adviser says. “It wasn’t necessary and it hurt us. Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Chris Christie undermined the Republican message.” Christie,

Right for his state - bad for his party.

It was the ethical thing to do. But, it cost him a run at the White House.

Sadly, there was no GOP message, or at least none that connected with enough people. Still freaks me out that fewer people voted for Mitt than for McCain. If as many had voted for McCain, Mitt would have won.

My view of Chris Christie: "the bloom is off the rose," as the saying goes. And that began with his GOP convention speech, where it took him f o r e v e r to mention Mitt.

Romney's #1 mistake: All the while saying Obama is a nice guy he is just over his head, Obama is framing Romney as a evil job exporting capitolist. Romney simply got beat framing the opponent. Period.

Christie was a pimple. The Romney campaign was the problem, with little to no exposure of Mitt on silly but woman friendly talk shows, late night TV or shows like O'Reilly & Hannitty. Media hid Paul Ryan since he couldn't be Palinized. Romney campaign hid Mitt from shows that could have shown his human side.

Using an old politician like John Sunnu as media response man fostered an image of old white guys. The use a silly spokeswoman from the McCain campaign did not serve Mitt well. Aren't there young, fresh & articulate spokespeople?

Finally, the failure to address Obama's smear ads in the debates (Why did you accuse me of murder and tax fraud, Mr. Obama?) was bad. Why did Obama have a TV ad in the NFL Monday night game but not Mitt? An understated campaign could not counter an over the top opponent.

It wasn't Romney, Christie, Rove, or Bush. You'all wanna point fingers, point them at your neighbors and fellow citizens. Honey Boo Boo won this election. The moronic droolers that sit in front of the TeeVee everynight won this election.

I cannot stand Bill O'Reilly, but he was absolutely dead-on right last night. Its the "I want free stuff" crowd that won the election for O.

Is BO still taking the NJ gov. phone calls? I bet it is not as easy to get through as it was last week. How is the cleanup going there? Are the NJ citizens feeling the love? You vote for BO you get screwed by BO. No love here for NY or NJ. If you want change, you have to talk louder and faster or you wind up as collateral damage.

When we get someone with a specific, positive plan who's willing to pound the Democrats failure, then we'll have someone with a chance of winning. Well-mannered doesn't cut it when you're dealing with Democrats. I can't even count how many chances Romney passed over for attacking 0bama. Christie, Sandy and Gary Johnson are all beside the point. A winner would have rolled over all of them.

#1, Christie is a cheap street walker who sold out the country for..............a phone call from bruce springsteen.

It is our US Senator's job to bring home the 'bacon'. It is the Governor's job to LEAD the citizens of his state, not kiss the arse of the man running against the man he has been chosen to represent in a national election.

Right for his state? I live and work there. What exactly has he done? He has made SOME union members pay a TEENY TINY bit more for their health INSURANCE.
Other than that, he cut the throat of the last chance this country had. Gee, how is that gonna be good for Jersey?

Chris Christie is the traitor, yes TRAITOR I have ALWAYS said he is.

BHO will LAUGH as he watches the television show him pictures of NJ residents misery and death.
Laugh with GLEE as Christie weeps over his phone call from a lousy singer.

I hope everyone remembers this day in the future when they start talking about Christie as a candidate. I would rather have the constitution amended so that Obama could run another term before I will ever entertain the thought of Christie as a candidate. And 4 years won't change that.

When Christie gave his explanation on TV about his NJ tour with Obama it was good. He appreciated the visit and what the Feds would give his state. He explained to us that it was important to be civil and appreciative, and he would be voting for Romney.

Problem with that was that the 50% of ''folks'' watching that with an IQ of 50% saw the other party, ours, getting along fine with their President. Their brains could not assimilate what Christie was saying. Christie did not need to go overboard to be so chummy and flattering. Doing that just prior to voting was not smart politically.

Blame can be thrown in every direction as to why Obama won, and why Romney lost. I like the way Romney handled himself, Ryan too, and I think that is exactly how they would handle themselves governing this country. I think that the timing of Christie's reaction to Obama was devastating and probably should have a lot of blame attached to it. All of us, the dumb 50% included, have lost the opportunity of turning this country around. What Obama did in four years I believe pales in comparison to what he will do in the next four years.

For being a savvy pol, Christie blew it, and took the wind out of Romney's sails.

We had a chance to save the country, but not now.

The parasites are gorging on the host, and will do so until both die.

We have a permanent, parasitic underclass that lives by government handout, and they now outnumber the wealth creators and wage earners.

The patience of liberals, abetted mightily by the mainstream media and America's public education system, have created a permanent, dependent society.

Will the wage earners revolt?

Let's see how high taxes go starting on January 1, 2013.

If Christie's praise of Obama was all it took for Romney to lose he sure must have been balanced on a knife's edge to begin with. The whole Christie and hurricane thing is silly. Obama won for two reasons: (1) a plurality of Americans still believe the BS he peddles, and (2) the news media went to unprecedented and disgraceful lengths to cover for him.

But Christie is not what some conservatives thought he was, and the slap in the face to Romney was certainly uncalled for. It says something about his character. He is extremely unsound on Muslims, perhaps because he does not understand the character and tenets of Islam. No doubt he has his good qualities. He is not presidential material. Of course, as we know from the case of Barack Obama, the latter is certainly no bar to becoming president.

I'm with # 18 .
We have become a nation of ignorant morons , many of whom expect the rest of us to work
so they don't have to.
Watch Leno's Jay Walking or some of the videos made at Obama rallies if you want to get an idea of
what the majority of our nation has become.
Rove should get great credit for his work
these past few years.
His American Crossroads PAC ran millions of dollars of ads in 2010 to help get Tea Party
House members elected.
This season he ran about 200 million dollars worth of very hard hitting ads against Obama.
I think Christie's gushing , hugging and defense of Obama was totally unnecessary and helped give Obama
good last minute PR that he didn't deserve.
Akin had plenty of chances to exit gracefully and
save the seat, but, he put his own ego
above the good of the party.
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council
encouraged Akin to stay in.
They'll be the first to carry on when Obama appoints pro choice Justices-plural- to the Court.

This is the comment I made on a couple of Christie threads yesterday and I still think it is right:
--------
My opinion of Chris Christie took a big dive when I saw his shmooze with Ø.
Then I though a minute and realized that the math doesn't lie.

Christie was the first governor to endorse Romney. Then in his usual over-the-top manner repeatedly said "don't throw me in the [VP] briar patch" until Romney chose Ryan instead of him.

That is where the math takes over.

If Romney had selected Christie, he would have been the heir apparent in 2020. (At age 58.)

But now Ryan will be in the catbird seat in 2020, making the next Republican opportunity for Christie 2028 @ 66.

But if the de-facto endorsement of Obama the other day resulted in the One pulling it out then Christie would have a shot in 2016 - 12 years earlier and 12 years younger.

Christie may be brash and crude, but he ain't politically stupid. His dog-in-the-manger "Why shouldn't I thank Obama for doing a great job by taking 2 hours away from his busy campaign schedule?" rings as false as Obama's claim that he created 5000 jobs.

Christie is disgusting--and I don't mean in appearance. Back in N.O. during Katrina, crybaby Blanco wouldn't even let Bush bring in the National Guard. Christie was going to get money whether he sucked up to O or not. New York did. Parts of NJ, by the way, are still without power.

#29, East Massachusets Ave, Beach Haven Crest; rode Gloria out on the ROOF. Know what we did? WE ALL pitched in together. Here's how it should have been dealt with-sans FEDERAL AID-
Evacuate. CC did a fine job of trying to get this done. Any who CHOOSE to stay? We recognize your RIGHT to do so, help may get there, but we promise nothing.
Barrier islands w/out year rounders? Owners, you'll see it when we get to you.
Areas impacted with residential housing? Vouchers.Then clear the waste with NJNG, and anyojne with a dozer. Sign an executive order outlawing Unions during reconstruction.
But noooooooooooo, he had to press flesh with a man who HATES living people.
Buddy, BHO will LAUGH with glee as he watches the pretty pretty pictures of DEAD AMERICANS go by on his flat screen.
And Christie will weep over his phone call with Bruce.

#45, Exit polling had %15 calling the Wan's Sandy response "Important". Had we retained that percentage alone we won.

Chris Christie sabotaged Romney's run. FOR 5 DAYS Snake and the Fat Man pushed Benghazi off the tube, and the OPTICS were......"Looky here, Uhhhbama is BIPARTISAN."

If women didn't think with their 'lady parts' we'da had the landslide we had prayed for.

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare?

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
