Honest: Would You Rather Win with
Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?

Jewish World Review, by Bernard Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/12/2013 9:26:27 PM

Those sophisticates at Time magazine made a funny. They put Chris Christie on their cover with the headline, "The Elephant in the Room." Get it? Elephant. Christie. Time magazine did a junior high fat joke right there on its cover. Time´s executive editor Michael Duffy explained the cheap shot this way: "Well, he´s obviously a big guy. He´s obviously a big Republican. But he´s also done a really huge thing here this week." The "huge thing" wasn´t only winning re-election as New Jersey´s governor, but doing it by appealing to a broad range of voters in a very blue state

Comments:
Hahahaha!! Actually the RepublicRats would LOSE with Christie Crème. Hands Down!!

Cadet Prayer - West Point, NY
?
O God, our Father, Thou Searcher of human hearts, help us to draw near to Thee in sincerity and truth. May our religion be filled with gladness and may our worship of Thee be natural.

Strengthen and increase our admiration for honest dealing and clean thinking, and suffer not our hatred of hypocrisy and pretence ever to diminish. Encourage us in our endeavor to LIVE ABOVE THE COMMON LEVEL OF LIFE. Make us to CHOOSE THE HARDER RIGHT INSTEAD OF THE EASIER WRONG, and NEVER BE CONTENT WITH A HALF TRUTH WHEN THE WHOLE CAN BE WON. ENDOW US WITH COURAGE THAT IS BORN OF LOYALTY TO ALL THAT IS NOBELE AND WORTHY, that SCORNS TO COMPROMISE WITH VICE AND INJUSTICE and KNOWS NO FEAR When truth and right are in jeopardy. Guard us against flippancy and irreverence in the sacred things of life. Grant us new ties of friendship and new opportunities of service. Kindle our hearts in fellowship with those of a cheerful countenance, and soften our hearts with sympathy for those who sorrow and suffer. Help us to maintain the honor of the Corps untarnished and unsullied and to show forth in our lives the ideals of West Point in DOING OUR DUTY TO THEE AND TO OUR COUNTRY. All of which we ask in the name of the Great Friend and Master of all.

Amen

Disagree, poster. I want to win! I respectfully (and I genuinely mean that) ask that you consider how hard it is for a Republican to survive up here in one of these blue states. You are literally in the Alamo.

I would vote for Cruz in a heartbeat, but please respect the hand-to-hand combat that Christie and others up here have to engage in on a daily basis just to survive. If Christie wins our nomination, I vote for him in a heartbeat. If Cruz wins our nomination, I vote for him in a heartbeat. We have to get this awful crowd out of Presidency.

Winning has nothing to do with getting an "R" label in the Whitehouse. It only matters if there is a commitment to restore the rule of law, limited government and the constitution and to undo the damage done by those with both "R" and "D" labels. I will vote for a Patriot if afforded the opportunity. Will Hillary be used as the sword of Damocles to force us to defer restoring our government for 4 years by voting for a "moderate" march to socialism? Hope nobody expects me to be pleased with that. Oops who cares what was I thinking.

Bernie keeps focusing on the campaign attributes of a candidate. Leadership is what is needed...and that requires guts and principles--not some hack that is bent on popularity and nothing else.

Christie is all bark, 24/7

Maybe old Bernard could give some of his leftist buddies in the media a call and tell them to quit bashing Cruz all the time. He himself did complain about that in Bias. If Cruz received all the good press Christie does it would be a whole different story. He also doesn´t get criticized by his own party. I would take an honorable, God fearing, Constitution loving man like Cruz any day over Christie. We are always told that a conservative can´t win. How do we know when the only candidates we choose are "moderate?" Everyone seems to forget that Reagan went through the same thing.

Ridiculous false choice. Given the recent history it seems more likely that Christie would lose and Cruz would win. Recent poll in fact reflects that Hillary would handily win over Christie. History shows us that moderates lose, but with a real conservative who displays principled leadership, victory occurs with historic margins, i.e., Ronald Reagan! Why are the establishment types so afraid of winning?

#2 said it for me. No more rinos, ever! I would rather have Cruz to vote for even if he lost.
At least I would finally be getting a candidate that I wanted to vote for, instead of a rino shoved in all of our faces, over all our objections.

And lets fix the primary system too. No more democrats voting in republican primaries, choosing our candidates.

If Christie in the GOP nominee, I´ll skip that portion of the ballot. If Cruz is the GOP nominee, he´ll get my vote. I´m no longer a Republican, but a Constitutional Conservative, and I will no longer vote a straight party line. No more holding my nose and voting for GOP RINOs to win an election.

Given the choice, it´s a no brainer for me...Cruz hands down. But if fate were to give us Christie against the PIAPS, again it would be a no brainer, although should this occur, and should the NJ Gov win, he´d infuriate most of us I´m sure. However anybody but Monica´s ex-boyfriend´s wife would just have to do.

Perhaps Romney lost the last election because 3 million less voted for him than for McCain. Were they folks who just couldn’t vote for a moderate? It certainly has us in a fine mess now. I will vote for anyone with the (R) after his name. And those that won’t, I wish you would just form your own party and take your own chances with your own candidate.

Are we going to have another candidate who can´t even carry his own state? How will Christie play in Ohio or Missouri? Who and how many will volunteer to work for Christie?
The Republican base will vote for Christie, but not with any enthusiasm. And Christie will probably get about the same number of votes that Romney did.

Christie couldn´t pass Romney´s vetting. You can bet that Cruz has had oppo research from all sides so far. He must be clean as a whistle.

In any case, Cruz will make a much better candidate because people will recognize him as the man who tried to stop Obamacare, not the guy who slobbered all over Obama for a few Hurricane Bucks.

Bernie plays the same song and same argument that was used to drum up support for McCain and Romney. When will we begin to start judging and evaluating candidates on what they have done and not on what pundits say they will do?

It is very interesting that the Republican Leadership, Republican leaning media and supposed Republican commentators have resorted to calling everyone who doesn´t agree with them as Far Right and/or Tea Partier. In nearly every context it is used as a pejorative term/label. In effect, it is a bit like staying in a relationship where one person constantly abuses the other.

Christie, Cruz, or Clinton it doesn´t really matter. NO one person is going to save America from her dizzying descent downwards. We are suppose to be a NATION of people that rule themselves and NOT a herd of sheep that is herded by a few. Unfortunately, we have proven ourselves the latter; waiting for the brave heroic sheepdog to save us from the ravine and wolves only to be sheared and slaughtered.

BUT lets continue to play the "new" preschool game, my candidate can beat your candidate.

We had this choice before and we "won" with McCain and Romney. Enough of these winners picked by RINO´s so we still loose even if we win. Cruz is a loser in the same way Reagan was proclaimed a loser by the same crowd! You always loose when you don´t fight. Right now they won´t fight anything in the Obama disaster because they have been in Washington too long and cannot see reality as do people from outside Washington. The GOP base craves leadership and get kicked in the teeth by the establishment.

It was McCain´s V-P who attracted the votes. If not for Gov. Palin it would have been a slam-dunk total landslide for the one NO one person knew anything about. McCain would have been a Real embarrassment with a different V-P pick.

What´s the difference if a RINO who doesn´t share your values wins or a Democrat who doesn´t share your values wins? They´ll both govern the same, and appoint the same sort of justices to the courts. If a loss is in the cards, I´d rather stand with Ted Cruz over Chrissie Christie, since I think Ted would win and eloquently express what conservatism is.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

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

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics.

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning.

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. 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." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

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)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
