Christie goes off on ‘toxic’ House
Republicans over Sandy aid delay

Washington Post, by Rachel Weiner

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/2/2013 2:50:03 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) condemned House Republicans Wednesday afternoon for failing to pass a $60 billion package of funding for Hurricane Sandy relief. In the strongest terms, he accused House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) of letting “toxic internal politics” impede necessary storm relief. “There’s only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these victims: the House majority and their speaker,” Christie said. “It was disappointing and disgusting to watch.” Christie told reporters that he has spoken to both Boehner and President Obama today.

The reason that all these property owners need Fed assistance is because they can´t buy flood insurance ... because ... those properties can flood.

Bulldoze the properties and move on.

But watching the Dem lawmakers add $-billions in pork for expenditures totally unrelated to Sandy wasn´t disgusting? Is that it?
This bill doubled in size because of all the unrelated earmarks added by Dem politicos.

Sorry for the second post, but anyone see or heard of Christie admonishing his transportation head for not paying heed a week before Sandy of the trains being parked where they very well may flood? A one hundred million dollar WHOOPS! How about the State cover this incompetence "rotund one"?

What´s the rush? The Dems always want late-night, closed-door negotiations. And, they usually get Republican enablers to go along. Let´s shine some light on these cockroaches for a change.

Let´s have a debate over spending. Why send anything to Alaska, NASA, museums in D.C.?

The money isn´t there anyway, and it´s not going anywhere. The money that has already been allocated isn´t close to being spent yet. New money will be spent over the next three years. Again -- What´s the rush (other than to sock it to the public again?

Maybe, just maybe, we´ll get some responsibility and make sure those that need relief in fact get it, instead of earmarking the heck out of the pork.

-Barack Hussein Obama, October 30, 2012

Christie has praised Obama for his handling of the storm response, saying Tuesday morning that the president has been “wonderful” and “deserves great credit.”

The Sandy Relief bill was so larded up with pork, that´s why it was shelved.

It included monies for fisheries in Alaska, $5.3B to the Army Corps of Engineers (more than their annual budget), $56.8 million for charting the debris from last year’s Japanese tsunami, $41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay, $100 million for the federal Head Start day care program, $188 million for new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines), $20 million for a nationwide “Water Resources Priorities Study,” $4 million for the Kennedy Space Center (in Florida, untouched by Sandy).

Is that what you wanted, Chris?

Christie, you gave away your favors too cheaply. Go have a seance so you can communicate with the late Arlen Spector, who also thought democrats "respected" him.

I don´t approve of what the republicans did with the "cliff," but I surely approve of them not passing a Sandy bill full of pork.

Though I have never been a fan of Christie´s -his remarks about Muslim judges were a deal breaker for me long before now- attacking him for attacking Boehner misses the point. The point is that perception is reality - and the Republican leadership left itself open to precisely this kind of smear. I simply do not understand how people who have spent years, indeed much of their lives in politics, could have failed to foresee and take precautions against such an obvious tactic by the opposition. This is a serious black eye that should never, ever have been allowed to happen. The damage is done. The narrative will now be recycled and repeated and warmed up and warmed over in the Leftist media. Saying nasty things about Christie will not undo the self-inflicted damage that Republicans have sustained. OF COURSE the whole thing is demagogy. OF COURSE the plan was to attach tons of pork to the relief bill. Everybody knows that. But Republicans fumbled the ball badly.

What #16 said. Chris Christie is no more than a democrat turned inside out and calling himself a Republican. The amount "required" for "sandy" is FAR less than what they are trying to extort from Taxpayers all over the Country. The bill, as usual is full of PORK! Chrissie should call his bff-obama and I´m sure he´ll fix things for him..What´s that? The Election´s over? ....Never mind. Good on Christie, what goes around comes around..The people of N.J. and N.Y. deserve better than a loaded up phony "relief" bill being mis-represented by the outright lies of the phony-christie and the rest of them.

So, do you think the voters are getting the picture? You can´t be slightly conservative or slightly republican. Social and fiscal issues go hand in hand. But we do not have a political party that is willing to explain to the voters exactly how that works.

I guess when Christie abandoned Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, to tour the Jersey coast doing campaign appearances for the DEMOCRAT candidate, he forgot that any aid to his state had to come through the REPUBLICAN controlled House. Payback sucks, eh Chris? Go get the money from your new pal Obama.

The people of New Jersey have no one to blame but Christie, for the way he completely bungled this.

Oh, and helpless Katrina victims have nothing on the helplessness in Jersey and New York. Almost 3 months later and still sitting in the debris waiting for someone to take care of them. Shovels and saws are such complicated tools to operate. Feed me, clothe me, house me, help me.

If Christie were an astute politician, he would have come out and exposed the democrats for using the Hurricane victims´ needs to reward their constituents.
Had he done that, the spotlight would now be shining on the crooked democrats for making victims suffer, and he would be polishing his halo.

If a tornado destroys a dozen homes, no federal assistance is given. If you house burns to the ground, no federal assistance is given. If you build a house along the coast and a hurrican or tropical storm destroys your home then we all have to pay to rebuild those homes. This is a bunch of crap. The federal governmnet should not pay anything to rebuild private homes. If the home owner was too stupid to get insurance then they should suffer the consequence, not the rest of us.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
