Coulter: Christie 'hoping to
use Obama to plug a dike'

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/31/2012 1:44:55 PM

Conservative pundit and noted Chris Christie fan Ann Coulter weighed in on the New Jersey governor’s praise and welcoming of President Barack Obama to his hurricane ravaged state, Wednesday. “I think he’s hoping to use Obama to plug a dike,” Coulter, the author of the new book “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” wrote in a brief email to The Daily Caller. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Christie, a surrogate to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and normally harsh Obama critic, has been heaping praise on the Democratic president for his

I am not a Mayor Bloomberg fan, but I give him a tip if the hat for telling Obama to stay away and let them focus on getting things back in order.

I think Governor Christie now has something in common with Obama: They have both advanced as far as they are going to go in the political world.

On one hand I could see how Christie was forced to do this, if he had said no the MSM would have beat him down. That said, he could have invited Romney to visit, and also have been a little less effusive with his praise.

Gov.CC neither wears wooden shoes nor has his sexuality ever been in question, and his love of NJ and her people has always been forthright. And IMO, The Big Man has never been a bigger man than now in his using America's biggest hypocrit to smooze that White House LIAR into doing first for NJ.

It is a politically smart move by Christie. It will help Christie much more than it will help Obama.

Obama is going to win New Jersey. That has never been in doubt. It doesn't matter if Obama wins New Jersey by more votes than he would have otherwise.

When Christie runs for re-election, I guarantee he will be running pictures of him and Obama in all of the Democrat strongholds.

Ms. Coulter is deluding herself, seeing what she wants to see. Rush is on this and he gets it. It's simple. It is exactly what you watched. Nothing more. Nothing complicated.

We all watched it on TV. Chris Christie folded like a cheap suit. He panicked. Melted down. Wet himself and puked on his shoes simultaneously. He thought that using his prosecutor's skills to bully some hapless teacher's union reps meant he could play in the majors. He got so full of himself that he delivered a speech at the republican convention in which he didn't even mention the republican candidate. All about Christie.

But as soon as he was faced with a real emergency, a real life and death crisis, he abandoned everything and everybody and went running to Obama begging for help. I bet he cried. Then he super-glued his lips to Obama's backside. It's disgusting.

Christie is through as a Republican. Bye Chris.

Christie is looking out for Christie, while helping his state at the same time. If he kisses Obama's mom jeans-clad rump, he will be at the front of the line for handouts.

I believe the Romney approach of delivering food, water and blankets is the right one. I do not think our government should be in the business of handing out money to people who are negligent with their own affairs. I don't think I should have to be tapped to rebuild someone's beach house. Sorry.

If Romney wins, Chris Christie has no shot at the presidency. Romney will be the incumbent. Then Paul Ryan will be the next in line.

So this, IMO, is his way to throw the election to Obama (and make his path easier in 2016). But he has no clue on the blow back.

He will take a huge share of the blame. And have no future left in the GOP.

His excuse that he needed to get some funds (which would have come anyhow) for his state, at the expense of an entire country, holds no water.

I don't live in NJ. Christie does and he has seen the horror created by Sandy at the Jersey Shores and in the northern cities like Hoboken.

Obama can release money and Christie plans to be in the front of the line. Christie loves his state and her citizens. Take him at his word - disaster trumps politics right now.

As Krauthammer said last evening, it's worth a couple of hundred million to have Obama in the state.

I have never felt the tingle up the leg thing with Christie. He comes across as a loudmouth, a blowhard and a bully. He is not sound on the Muslims. He seems to have something wrong with his glands which needs treatment. He is the only one who knows why he gave a gratuitous boost to Obama and why he made the disparaging and needless crack("I couldn't care less...") about Romney. That was disrespectful. I am not happy about it. Other people, some of them, think he is swell. I think he is a joeik.

The not so conservative Republican Chris Christy had a panic attack right in front of millions of Americans. From his Bully Pulpit he ran straight to the Federal Government stating he didn't care about the Presidential election. Wow! When things get tough this so called tough guy folds like a cheap suit. All states including New Jersey will get financial aid and any other type of assistance required. Meanwhile America desperately needs new leadership in the White House. Christy will never be President of the U.S. He lacks the proper temperament, is too egotistical and authoritative. it's difficult trying to figure out exactly where he stands on issues. In other words America does not need another President that can't be trusted.

How would Obama NOT have sent aid to a Dem state one week before the election? Christie did not need to "play the harlot" to help his state. Nor did he need to bash Romney in the process. A polite thank you would have sufficed. IMO, he's been bought, but he sure must believe Obama's going to win because he has burned his bridges.

We don't get the candidates we want. Or the Presidents. Or the Governors. Or the Mayors. Those we want are ideals.

Instead we must always get a person. And each one sees his duties and obligations differently.

Christie probably figured his duty as Governor included staying out of a quarrel with Obama while Sandy required attention. And he did.

Bloomberg didn't want more non-essential vehicles and hoopla in Manhattan. He said stay away.

I really don't see any significant screw-up or sell out related to Sandy.

All fine and good wanting emergency funds...does Christie need to give the media a photo-op hugging and clasping Obama as if there was no other help?
If Obama withheld emergency funds after all the stricken pictures of NJ...you can bet he'd be toasted and eaten.
There was no need to kiss-up, Gov. No need. And a great need to show the country what independence and dignity look like.

Christie-I loathe you now and forever after.

Bush greets Obama at Houston airport

When President Barack Obama arrived in Houston about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, former President George H. W. Bush was there to greet him. "When the president comes to your hometown, you show up to meet him," said Bush, who chatted with Obama and the first lady for about five minutes at the foot of the steps next to Air Force One at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Obama greeted about 50 well-wishers behind a barricade and chatted and shook hands for about 10 minutes before leaving for a meeting with about 30 members of the Democratic National Committee at the Museum District

As new details emerged about his four-year stint in the 1980s as a confidential informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rev. Al Sharpton thought enough of the attention to hold a news conference to address what became front-page fodder for New York tabloids for two days this week. But to use Sharpton-esque language, the revelation was nothing but an elevation. At the annual convention of the organization he founded in 1991, the National Action Network, there was no hint of any discord or doubt. The United States attorney general, Eric H.

IRS Gave House Oversight Democrats

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent tax documents on a targeted conservative group to Democratic staff on the House Oversight Committee, newly released emails show, despite previous denials by ranking Oversight Democrat Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) that such contact had occurred. Emails released by the GOP-led Oversight Committee show Democratic staff requested information from the IRS’ tax-exempt division on True The Vote, a conservative group that monitors polling places for voter fraud. Republicans and conservative activists say the IRS tax-exempt division, led by former official Lois Lerner, targeted dozens of conservative groups because of their politics while ignoring similar progressive

The Treasury Department has raised $2.38 billion after selling a large chunk of its stock in Ally Financial Inc. as part of the government´s ongoing effort to recoup the billions of dollars spent bailing out companies during the 2008 financial crisis. Treasury said Wednesday that it got $25 each for the 95 million shares it sold in an initial public offering. The pricing of the IPO came at the low end of the forecast range of $25 to $28 per share. The sale brought the amount it has recouped from the bailout of Ally to $17.7 billion, slightly more than the

The House on Wednesday handily rejected a GOP budget alternative based on President Obama´s 2015 spending blueprint. It was defeated 2-413, following a pattern seen in recent years in House votes to overwhelmingly reject Obama´s budget proposals. Today´s vote is just slightly better than the unanimous vote against Obama´s budget in 2012. The two "yes" votes came from Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) and Jim Moran (D-Va.), who is retiring. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) offered a budget alternative based on Obama´s budget plan as a substitute amendment to the House GOP budget. Mulvaney made this move as a way to force

A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral. The vote marked an escalation in Republicans´ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency´s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny. On another front, a separate committee will vote Thursday on whether to hold her in contempt of Congress for twice refusing to testify on the scandal.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G.

Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted.
