Chris Christie: ‘I’m in
this business to win’

Politico, by James Hohmann

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/15/2013 7:46:15 PM

BOSTON — With 82 days until his likely reelection as governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie laid out his clearest rationale yet Thursday for an almost-certain 2016 presidential campaign: He can win. Speaking privately to Republican leaders here for the party’s summer meeting, he touted his crossover appeal and presented himself as the party’s most electable option to win back the White House in 2016. “We are not a debating society,” Christie said. “We are a political operation that needs to win.” The 41-minute luncheon speech was closed to reporters at Christie’s insistence, sources said, but an attendee at the meeting offered a

Comments:
So has Christie already been chosen by the establishment Republicans as the nominee? Christie presented himself as the party’s most electable option to win? Very heavy sigh. That´s what we need, another moderate as our nominee. s/o

The last thing we need is a "crossover" candidate. Think McCain and Romney. There can be no crossover, no surrender of any kind to liberals.

At best we end up with democrat liberal lite. In his condition, however, we end up with his vice president. Maybe for once, the VP nominee will be relevant.

The GOP is truly bound for defeat again if the Holy Anointed GOP Repstablishment Gods and Goddesses on Mount Olympus sucker in to his buttock kissing pitch. The only thing he is in to is eating donuts, corn dogs, and chocolate covered bacon. Let´s never forget these same GOP Leaders he is courting are the same leaders that gave us Dole, McCain and Romney. I guess the 4th time could be the charm. Not.

Yawn! Christie will need all the dem votes he can get in the primaries. Change the rules New Hampshire.

Disagree on Romney, he is conservative where it counts. Total abortion ban rhetoric took out Bachman and others. A poison issue similar to the dems going after guns.

We had a clear choice in 2012, an economic fixer or a socialist society changer and the voters were weighed in the election and found wanting.

A clear choice but Romney was the wrong religion and the press was allowed to feed on things said in 1800´s while covering for all things said in this century in obama´s life: Newt started the rich guy diss of Romney; obama "Killed" Romney with faint praise about romneycare preceding obamacare and I have yet to hear any reference that Hillarycare was resurrected and passed under uber-empowered by the voters liberal run Congress. Low info and special interest voters and voter fraud did the rest.

So what now? Dems are using meme again "that no difference between parties. Do we aid the idea that will put Hitlary over the top in 2016?

If I were the repubs, I´d start thinking about how they can get us back and not worrying about blowhard RINO governors who will never get Conservative support. I had a delightful call the Republican Congressional Committee. They´re already on the if you do´t support us you are supporting Obama routine.

If only the Republican Reps would start supporting me the way they want me to support them. Since they seem more comcerned with 2016 and enabling illegal immigrants to be legalized, and not stop ObamaCare or out-of-control government spending they can suck air.

Christie should suck air too, Instead of all the food he´s getting. Christie will never get my vote.

I will not vote for Christie, no biggie though because I live in Delaware and my vote doesn´t count anyway. Delaware is the state where on day of the last election there were more NJ license plates in the parking lot then DE plates at my precinct. Funny thing though, when I went to vote (against) for a school bond referendum, I was required to show photo ID and sign a card stating that I was who I was, I had not voted already, I was an American citizen, and I was not a felon. When I asked why they didn´t do this for the presidential election they told me it was only required for local elections. Yeah, it really matters if I vote.

For those conservatives who still hope to "take back" the GOP: how do your prospects look now? The times call for a radical break with the "tradition" of the past 50 or so years, and it should start with the 2014 elections. "Bold colors, not pastels", as our last real conservative POTUS liked to say.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
