Romney: Christie ´Could Easily Become
Our Nominee and Save Our Party’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/4/2013 10:22:57 AM

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Barack Obama, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that he believed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could “easily” become the GOP presidential nominee in 2016 and “save our party.” Christie most recently made national news when he decided to drop a legal challenge to rulings in New Jersey state courts that declared same-sex marriage legal there. And not long before that, he changed his position on the question of whether illegal aliens should get in-state tuition rates at New Jersey state colleges. Now he backs legislation that

Comments:
It´s bad enough worrying about winning in 2014 and 2016 without having to read things like this. The infighting in the Republican party is certainly not helpful in uniting to beat the socks off the Democrats in those elections.

Governor Romney is not the only one saying that. I´ve heard it and read it in many places. However, I´ve also read that Christie will have to learn how to campaign nationally, that "Shutup" does not win elections.

I seem to remember that McCain was the only one who could win for the Republicans and that Romney was the only one who could win for the Republicans. Christie will have the same result.

Well I guess I will have to find another party then if he is the one to save the GOP. I´m not voting for any more candidates like McCain or Romney period. Christy is just another Northeast moderate Republican (which down here in Texas is considered a liberal) who will reach across the aisle to help the Democrats spend us into bankruptcy. No thanks. We need someone who will say no to the Democrats and it isn´t Christy.

So Romney could win a goobernorship in a deep blue state. But couldn´t generate support in states more purple. And he thinks Christie, also from deep blue state, will somehow energize the conservatives in Red and purple states.

We know we can lose with moderate candidates. Heck, Romney was agreeing with Obambi about half the time in the debates so we could argue that we have learned to lose with liberal candidates.

It’s past time to run a conservative. Say a candidate like a Reagan.

Romney, you had your moment of glory and you lost to a light-weight. Time to fade back into the woodwork, retire, or get lost, whatever. You really don´t have anything to offer now and, frankly, you are sort of an embarrassment to true fiscal conservatives.

Sadly, the only thing Christie would "save" the Republican Party from is receiving a single vote from any conservative in this country.

If you are going to have a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda, pro-big government president, does it really matter if he has a D or a R after his name? He still won´t represent conservative and traditional American values and will continue the destruction of our nation...

What? The GOP may as well run McCain again; Christie cannot be depended upon to toe the conservative line. And these days, "moderate republican" is a dirty word, so I don´t know what Romney is talking about.

Things are no longer normal in the two Parties: The Democrat Party has gone full-bore socialist (by commission or omission), and the GOP is still squishy-middle reach-across-the-aisle McCainism.

Cruz, Lee & Co. are the conservatives we need but can they win, given the demonization they´ve gotten even from their own Party.

I´d really hate to lose another general election to a third Party effort. America can´t afford people "voting their consciences" at the expense of losing again.

Didn´t we learn our lesson with Perot and the others who challenged the GOP incumbent? Didn´t we learn our lesson by the national temper tantrum we threw at Romney´s candidacy? All these third party challengers have lost elections for us. It doesn´t matter if they´re better conservatives than the incumbent; we still lose to them.

But the people who vote for the third party candidates can sleep at night with their consciences while the rest of us who are trying to win rather than trying to make a point, are stuck with the Obamas of the country.

Is the party, as it stands today with principle-free liberals (pro abortion, pro gay marriage, pro wasteful government spending, pro backroom deals, cowardly do-nothings crying on cue, silently watching liberals destroy our decent conservative soldiers, kissing the behinds of liberals at every opportunity, giving phony awards to the Clintons) at the helm, worth saving?

Sometimes when a house is infected with black mold behind every wall, and the architect(ure) is unsound, it is best to condemn the house and rebuild, from the ground up.

Mitt could talk about investments, where to put money, amount of risks, etc. I´d listen, but considering he was mauled by the worst President in American history, I´m ignoring his political advice. A candidate so lame, he hired advisers with losing records, clueless about organizing, stuck with a computer program that never worked, which shows the level of accountability inside his campaign, stood mute when obvious lies were thrown in his face, always reacted instead of pushing back against arguments that everyone knew were going to be brought up repeatedly. A guy who ran a campaign that was some kind of weird retro photo op, instead of showing the gut punching he seemed to enjoy during the Republican debates. Clueless about how the media was using him then and just as out of touch now.

#23,

You hit the nail on the head when you said,
"Cruz, Lee & Co. are the conservatives we need but can they win, given the demonization they´ve gotten even from their own Party."

Why your automatic deference and loyalty to the ones demonizing conservatives? You and others are resigned to the notion that our party leaders are allowed to do whatever they want, even when it goes against everything we believe. Because we "must" win an election, no matter what. Did rinos Dole, McCain or Romney win? No.
Bush Sr won one term because of Reagan.

The people who are demonizing conservatives lean very much to the Left but call themselves Republicans for some reason. Why would you casually allow them to throw our good conservatives under the bus, and automatically side with the attackers? It doesn´t make sense. They don´t own us. Or our votes. Our party leaders are supposed to serve the people, not destroy conservatives. If they want to attack somebody, attack the liberals.

Winning with a liberal is not winning, in my opinion.

There´s a wide group of GOP possibilities. A lot of L-Dotters are prematurely ruling out this one and that one based on today´s news or yesterday´s photo op. In 2012, we had Heartthrob of the Day, Santorum, Bachmann, Gingrich, Cain, Perry. Governor Romney wasn´t a heartthrob, but he was a serious, skilled businessman and former governor who knew which levers to pull if he was given the captain´s seat. I honor each of these people for offering their services to the nation. I look forward to the next group. It´s going to be a good ride.

The only currently known RINO hopeful for 2016 who is worse than Chris Christie is Peter King!

The only worthwhile thing Obama has ever done (as far as we know) is to be so bad that he made the Progressive agenda obvious. Republican progressives only seek to continue to keep it cloaked in conservative rhetoric.

It´s obvious that Romney is injecting himself into the fray NOW for a reason. He is up to something. He is being a good little soldier for the establishment. He will do as he is told - go out there and puff Christie. He is angling for a VP nod (from Christie), Cabinet position, etc. from next Republican administration. What he sadly doesn´t ´get is that his kind of NE liberal RINO will never make it to the White House.

The Bundy Ranch Saga Proved

The Bundy Ranch Saga has crystallized the mood of the American people. Cliven Bundy, in a dispute with the Federal government, managed to call enough attention to his plight to mobilize hundreds of Americans to stand with him as he nullified federal law. Through organized networks of regular Americans and largely through social media, and without traditional news media calling attention to Bundy´s side of the complaint, the Federal government found out in a hurry that heavy-handed tactics against the American people will not work. I believe regular Americans are on the cusp of doing what it takes to teach

Dropbox CEO: Rice Will Remain on Board

Condoleezza Rice? will remain on Dropbox’s board of directors, according to a blogpost from founder and CEO Drew Houston. Rice’s recent appointment to the board drew some controversy among political opponents of the former secretary of state, who urged the file-sharing company to reverse its decision. The backlash to Rice’s addition came just days after Mozilla pushed out its newly hired CEO Brandon Eich for his support of traditional marriage in 2008, prompting some to think Dropbox would follow suit and let Rice go to avoid political fallout. But Houston writes that Dropbox is “honored to have Dr. Rice join our board”

Is Barack Obama ‘black’? A
majority of Americans say no.
Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza    Original Article

President Obama made history in 2008 as the first African American president in U.S. history. But according to data in a fascinating new Pew Research Center study, a majority of Americans describe the president as "mixed race," while just more than a quarter (27 percent) call him "black." While whites and Hispanics are far more likely to describe Obama as "mixed race," a strong majority of African Americans see him as black. And black voters voted in historically large numbers for Obama. He won 93 percent of the African American vote in 2012 and 95 percent among that group in

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner is living the life of a private citizen at her more-than $2.4 million property in Bethesda, Md. while Republicans consider holding a House floor vote to hold her in contempt of Congress. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted 21-12 to hold Lerner in contempt last week after she waived her Fifth Amendment rights but continued to stonewall the committees investigation into the IRS targeting scandal. The measure was opposed by all 12 of the committee’s Democrats, including Ranking Member Rep.

IRS Workers Still on Track to Get Bonuses

In February IRS officials announced employees will be receiving bonuses in order to boost morale after the scandal broke about the agency inappropriately targeting conservative tea party groups. Citing the need to boost employee morale, the Internal Revenue Service’s new commissioner said Monday that he will pay out millions of dollars in bonuses to agency employees, reversing a decision his predecessor made to save money amid the sequester budget cuts and other belt-tightening last year. The agency remains under fire for targeting tea party groups, but Commissioner John Koskinen said the bonuses are needed to retain and attract good employees

(WLP:US), the biggest commercial insurer in the health law’s exchanges, said last month it may seek “double-digit plus” premium increases for 2015. While many other insurers have declined to comment on next year’s rates, large price increases may chase people away in Year 2 of Obamacare, giving foes impetus to push changes. Republicans say Burwell will be asked during confirmation hearings to answer questions that her predecessor as health and human services secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, avoided. That includes whether the

White House press secretary Jay Carney called a Russian fighter jet´s buzzing of a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Black Sea one of a series of Russian “provocations” and threatened that there would be costs for Moscow´s aggressive actions in Ukraine. “I can assure you that Russia´s provocations and further transgressions will come with a cost,” he said. “Certainly if they go further down the road in attempting to destabilize Ukraine ... the costs will continue to grow.” U.S. officials are actively evaluating the escalating situation in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian forces have seized buildings in several cities and are not responding

Even if you have never beheld Mt. McKinley or worked along the expansive Alaskan pipeline, you can appreciate the natural beauty and natural resource benefits of the magnificent state of Alaska. During the summer of 1977, I worked in Alaska, 160 miles above the Arctic Circle, as a weather observer on the shores of the Chukchi Sea. Today, I long to see this truly wild and wonderful state continue to prosper as not just a terrific employment or tourist destination, but as an even bigger energy lifeline to the lower 48 states, as well. But, there is considerable difficulty in tapping Alaska’s frozen

Johnny Weir is reportedly back with estranged husband Victor Voronov despite a nasty divorce battle that had been publicly escalating since February. Voronov says the divorce is off and Johnny may move back into their home, but only if the figure skater agrees to publicly apologize, reports TMZ. The agreement also stipulates that Weir´s mother Pamela must butt out of the couple´s private life and personal finances. According to the report, Weir was planning to move back into their home as early as Monday but the couple were seen bickering over their own reconciliation agreement. Come a long way: Voronov

The most expensive provisions of Obamacare will cost taxpayers about $100 billion less than expected, the Congressional Budget Office said Monday. CBO also said it doesn´t expect big premium increases next year for insurance plans sold through the health care law´s exchanges. In its latest analysis, CBO said the law´s coverage provisions—a narrow part of the law that includes only certain policies—will cost the government $36 billion this year, which is $5 billion less than CBO´s previous estimate. Over the next decade, the provisions will cost about $1.4 trillion—roughly $104 billion less than CBO last estimated. The analysis covers only

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba -- A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality may have been breached in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, apparently, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind,

Two major environmental groups will announce Monday that they are creating an alliance between their two political action arms, in an effort to expand their influence on national policymakers. The League of Conservation Voters and the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund are starting LeadingGreen, a collaboration that will steer donations to federal candidates and enlist the help of major donors in lobbying elected officials. Although it was not prompted by the Supreme Court’s decision this month to strike down the overall limit on how much individuals can give candidates and political parties, LCV President Gene Karpinski said the ruling

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

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

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

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

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. 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

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
