Can Chris Christie
rescue the GOP?

Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2013 11:45:19 AM

A pair of polls out this week shows the dire state the Republican Party finds itself in — and a way out of the wilderness, should Republicans choose to take it. Poll No. 1: Rasmussen Reports found that views of the tea party — the wing of Republicanism that dominates party primaries and therefore the congressional Republican caucuses — at a new low. Only 8 percent of likely voters considered themselves tea-party members, down from 24 percent in 2010. According to Rasmussen (which tends to have a pro-Republican bias), unfavorable views of

Comments:
It looks like there is a full court press for the establishment Republicans. Of course the Democrats are in favor of that.

No, Chris Christie can not save the GOP.
No Moderate ever will.

A Northeast Republican is really just a moderate Democrat. No Thanks. Viewing Chris Christie as a lifesaver is too funny. I assume Dana wrote this a humorous piece. LOL.

The Republican establishment: the roll over crowd that lies on their back and lets the press and the dimocrats have their way. Christie is so completely clueless. I will NEVER FORGIVE HIM for the stunt he pulled just before election day. Republicans are elephants, so we have very long, long memories.

What a great piece of satire. "certainly not a liberal" --- What color is the sky in your universe? The man is in the middle of the trough taking all the federal government money he can get and brags about it. That´s not liberal? Once he starts running for president the national news media will cut him to pieces like they did McCain. They´ve picked their next candidate and it´s not this guy. They just want to see if we will fall for the same stupid strategy three times in a row.

Looks to me like some liberal is trying to rehabilitate Christie after he stepped in his mess kit last week.

Unfortunately, Chris Christie is dead to a lot of conservatives right now with no immediate prospect of resurrection.

Besides, when all is said and done. New Jersey is a corrupt union enclave with a bunch of Obama voters. Hard to feel sorry for them.

Leap ahead. It´s 2016 and Chris Christie is te GOP nominee for POTUS. Won´t hear much complaining then, just a lot of, "well, I will have to hold my nose, but I´m voting Christie, as he is the lesser of two evils".

I´m SURE everyone can see this exact scenario being played out, as always.

I like Christie, but I think he wouldn´t stand a chance in the general election. The MSM would stay quiet until he won the primaries then would gather 1000´s of gays, minorities, union thugs, unwed mothers, etc to show they were mistreated by him. He is not PC so there is plenty of film showing him telling it like it is to these people and you know the media will edit it to make him seem worse.

Marco Rubio Shakes Up Staff And

Fox News Latino, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/14/2014 9:24:33 PM     Post Reply
Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Bill O’Reilly invited Fox News contributor Brit Hume onto The O’Reilly Factor Monday night to expand on comments he made about Attorney General Eric Holder and race over the weekend. Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

4 killed, at least 36 wounded in weekend shootings During a 36-hour period over the weekend of April 11, 35 people were shot in Chicago, causing four fatalities in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out last week on his treatment by Congress, with the implication that it may have to do with his race. However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

He projects the kind of humility and kindness that is consistent with my understanding, at least, of Jesus’ teachings,” Obama explained. Obama also praised the Pope’s simplicity and spirituality. “I suspect, my sense is, is that he’s a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being Pope,” he said. “That’s not his style, and that is part of why I think he has been so embraced around

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment
