Christie calls NRA ad
´reprehensible,´ announces
violence task force

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Matt Katz

Original Article

TRENTON – Gov. Christie blasted the NRA’s new ad focusing on President Obama’s daughters – he called it “reprehensible” – but he wouldn’t given an opinion about a proposed federal assault weapons ban. Christie’s extensive comments on the issues of guns and violence came during a news conference this afternoon at the Statehouse in which Christie announced the creation of a task force to examine “violence control” measures in the wake of the shooting massacre in Sandy Hook. Led by two former state attorneys general, one Republican and one Democrat, and made up of

Did those children he used as a prop for his photo-op have a choice about being brought into the debate? No. In fact, he motioned for the little boy on his left to step forward for a photo-op, and poor child stood there frozen, as if afraid to approach the president, who then coldly shrugged him off in disdain. And Christie accuses the NRA of using children to make a political point?

Memo to Christie: 250,000 voters joined the NRA this month; your political future is toast, blue state or not.

The NRA was perfectly appropriate and powerful in stating the plain, undeniable truth in the ad. Hearing the NRA speak "truth to power" is painful, so painful to our elitist (would-be) masters. But how amusing the reaction of the more-equal! Bravo NRA--more please.

At first, I thought Christie was a Republican.
After him kissing Obama, I was convinced that he was a RINO.
Now I think he´s a Hippo.

No. Hussain the Bow-Boy and his socialist sychophants, particularly the infiltrators in the Republican Party, are those that are reprehensible.

Liars: reprehensible

Hiding behind children for photo-ops: reprehensible

Mouthing off with executive decrees designed ultimately to keep schools (and the population) disarmed while "their" children are protected by armed guards: reprehensible

Further dividing this country by the ongoing campaign to finish off the "South": reprenhensible

Running up trillions in debt with no end in sight: reprehensible in it treason

The trampling on the Constitution and the rights of the majority by the Communist/Socialist minority: reprehensible.

Bow-Boy: reprehensible.

Fat-Boy: ditto.

After watching the NRA ad, I didn´t think it was taking a swipe at the Obama girls and their Secret Service detail. I thought it was about Sidwell Friends School that has a whole security department of eleven people to protect the whole school.

I especially liked the last line of the ad, about the President´s girls have professional police protection and "your kids attend school in a gun-free zone!" Works for me!

Chris Christie is just another opportunistic blowhard. I thought the NRA ad was (pardon me) bang on truth-telling. Would the governor find me reprehensible, as well? And, does anyone out there believe the governor´s task force will come out strong for better education for everyone about our Constitution and our civic responsibilities? Not to mention taking personal responsibility among our own friends and families to make sure unstable or irresponsible people who should not have guns, do not have guns.

I note that lefties hold their most strident criticism for ads, campaigns, etc. that contain the highest quotient of truth and/or common sense.

An over-the-top reaction to facts tells us all we need to know about their mindset and their agenda.

You have to be joking!!! 0bama sends his girls to a private school; this school has ELEVEN armed guards with guns and REAL bullets. 0bama just overturned the law that gives expresidents security guards (used to be only ten years after they are no longer president), but 0bama wants armed guards with real guns protecting him for the rest of his life. Now would you not think he is a roaring hypocrite??? And Christie is toast; he is not a Republican, and he will never be president for sure now.

Chris, are you sure it wasn´t horrifying? Perhaps it was the most disgusting thing you´ve ever seen? Calling it bad things doesn´t make it bad. It just shows how afraid you are of the media, how desperate you are to hang with elite hypocrites and how easy it is to get you to pander for every little bit of attention. Pointing out that wannbe elitists say one thing and do another is not ´reprehensible.´ It is what leaders are supposed to do, you politician.

I was at a christie town hall meeting yesterday. A short video ( looked like campaign video), he entered and spoke for a bit , then took questions from the audience. Most were about hurricane sandy ( I live near Long Beach Island which was hit hard) ,......Christie talked about how long he´s been working, 16 hr days !! Well, thats his job. We saw him leave, big black SUVs , black windows, armed guards. His son was with him. New bills have been introduced in the state house, all limiting guns ownership, all sponsored by dems.

Calling Christie a RINO is too kind. He´s at best an opportunist, doing what he has to do to get elected in New Jersey, at worst his successes to date have gone to his head and he now thinks he´s a cut above everyone else. I´d call him a Democrat.

Ann Coulter...eat your words before YOU lose credibility. Your boy Romney wouldn´t fight for his election against the massive and obvious voter fraud and now Christie is demonstrating that he doesn´t understand America either.

Another dense loudmouth fails to understand the truth. The NRA ad addresses Obama´s two-faced position on guns in schools. His kids go to a private school with a dozen or so armed PRIVATE SECURITY (not secret service) staff. Your kids and mine, well "more guns isn´t the answer; more gun laws is".

There is nothing "reprehensible" about the NRA outing elected hypocrites, unless you happen to be one of them.

Ordinary Americans may not have as many options for schooling their children as the elites enjoy, but one thing that ought to be equally available is the presence of armed security in all schools.

Don´t tell me it doesn´t save lives. I know better. I was working in a public school when a former student arrived at what politicians idiotically refer to as a "gun free zone." Fresh from killing his own father, the ex-student was armed with multiple weapons and prepared to continue killing. When he started shooting at students who were having their lunch outside, the only thing standing between a very deranged man and a school full of defenseless students, teachers and staff was one armed deputy and a retired state patrolman. The SP retiree teaches driver´s ed but does not carry a firearm. Because they are TRAINED, these two men managed to disarm the shooter, with the deputy holding his gun on the shooter, and the retired state patrolman cuffing him. THAT is why elites want armed protection for their own kids. They know damned well it works.

Shame on Chris Christie. He has removed any doubts I still had about him. He´s an opportunist and a hypocrite, far too comfortable with the anti Second Amendment crowd.

I have to admit that the "Krispy Kreme" moniker made me laugh, but I won´t criticize Christie because of his weight when there´s so much more to criticize him about.

I don´t know if he was a Republican and has recently had a true change of heart, or if he has always been a liberal and hid it. I think it is the former, but the conversion has been pretty dramatic.

Another possibility is that he knows he needs to get reelected in a blue state and is saying what he thinks they want to hear, but doesn´t believe it. This is the ugliest thing to do because he now loses the people that put him there and the left that always hated him will never love him anyway.

He will never win reelection, so I say if they´re going to hate you, you might as well give them a good reason to.

has actually been investigating voter fraud .
The RNLA has updates on their website www.rnla.org.
Governor Romney would have made a superb president and Commander in Chief.
He doesn´t deserve to be demeaned by the term " boy ".

WASHINGTON — President Obama wants Americans to see how climate change will remake their own backyards — and to make it as easy as opening a web-based app. As part of its effort to make the public see global warming as a tangible, immediate and urgent problem, the White House on Wednesday will inaugurate a website aimed at turning scientific data about projected droughts and wildfires and the rise in sea levels into eye-catching digital presentations that can be mapped using an app. Mr. Obama’s counselor, John D.

In 2011, Vermont passed the nation´s first single-payer healthcare system, "Green Mountain Care." While the law was supposed to be fully enacted by 2017, it has become apparent that there´s no solid plan in place to actually pay for the healthcare of all Vermont residents. Democratic lawmakers, citing missed deadlines and past failures, have begun to call for Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin to "shelve" the plan. “The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that’s very disappointing. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan,” Condon told Vermont

It was a shocking disclosure just two years ago. In Seoul, South Korea, President Barack Obama’s voice was picked up on a hot mic as he told Russia’s Dmitri Medvedev: "Tell Vladimir [Putin] I can be more flexible after the election." It was an unprecedented confession by an American head of state. It was shocking – or should have been – because it showed the president of the United States conspiring, literally whispering assurances to a foreign leader that may not have been consistent with his own public pronouncements to us, the American voters, or to the world.

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

A state legislator and dairy magnate has defeated a suburban Chicago businessman in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Illinois. State Sen. Jim Oberweis´ victory Tuesday over Doug Truax sends him on to a November matchup with Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate. Oberweis is from the western Chicago suburb of Sugar Grove. He was elected to the Illinois Senate in 2012 and had made previous unsuccessful runs for U.S. Senate and governor. He has been criticized for some political ads, including one before a previous election in which he said the number of immigrants entering

Secretary of State John Kerry had harsh words today for Vladimir Putin, saying he is surprised and disappointed in a speech the Russian president gave about the country’s right to take over Crimea from Ukraine. “It really just didn’t jibe with reality or with what’s happening on the ground,” Kerry said, speaking to a group of university students at the State Department. “The president may have his version of history, but I believe that he and Russia, for what they have done, are on the wrong side of history.” Kerry refused to give any details about what the United States

(Video) At least a dozen protesters disrupted a town hall meeting Tuesday with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, criticizing him over the distribution of Sandy recovery aid and for a political payback scandal overshadowing his administration. The demonstrators were quickly led outside by police, as some chanted "New Jersey deserves better." It was the second recent town hall to be disrupted by Christie opponents. But unlike last week, when a half-dozen student protesters seemed to take Christie by surprise, he was prepared Tuesday, even warning the crowd to expect some chaos. He blamed a union, the Communications Workers of America,

When Robert Manning started cleaning out his wallet because it was getting too fat, he had no idea he would find $1 million stuffed inside. Or at least a Virginia Lottery ticket guaranteeing him that fortune. The 51-year-old from Springfield, Va., had been sitting on the winning ticket for 11 days. It was among a dozen tickets he packed in his wallet after buying them at a 7-Eleven near his home for the March 5 drawing. “It feels crazy,” Manning told lottery officials while turning in the ticket. “It feels like there’s nine million things going through my mind.” Taking weeks

In an interview with Univision Deportes, a Spanish-language sports radio show, Obama said immigration officials won’t have access to the personal information that consumers provide when signing up for healthcare on the new exchanges. “Well, the main thing for people to know is that any information you get, you know, asked with respect to buying insurance, does not have anything to do with … the rules governing

WARSAW — Vice President Joseph R.

Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner. In an email, Donohue blamed the "bullying" against the parade on its "Catholic element." "I have had my last Guinness and Sam Adams. Heineken was always slop, so there is no sacrifice there," Donohue wrote. "I urge

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

"You know, the first lady has talked about the importance of young people here in the United States learning about other cultures.

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Looking ahead to this fall’s midterm elections, Priebus boldly predicted big gains for the GOP, especially in the Senate. ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need to and we need to at the RNC make sure that we can capture the positives and the benefits we’ve been

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside
