Palin to Christie: Real Courage is cutting when you have a surplus like I did
The Right Scoop ^ | March 4, 2011 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 03/04/2011 5:59:06 PM PST by Virginia Ridgerunner

Palin says that Christie is forced to cut budgets because NJ is broke. But she points out that when she became Governor of Alaska, she cut even though she had a surplus:

You, sirs, are an unprincipled morons. I have read exhaustively on the subject of her resignation – having been deeply disappointed in her judgement when it happened. Upon learning all of the facts of the matter and listening and reading her account of the incident, I was the one who had to change my opinion – not her. She showed great character in putting her family, her state and her constituents ahead of any personal ambitions that she may have had for the future. It was a move necessitated by forces allied against her for their own political gain, attacking her where she was most vulnerable – she was not rich, not able to take on the hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal liability that follows from defending herself against frivolous ethics complaints. I would not have been able to do so, I suspect that you would not have been able to either. Instead, she stepped aside for the good of those who elected her. Her Lieutenant Governor was elected in his own right – a feather in both their caps – and she has turned the table on her enemies by working to become a reasonably wealthy person. Her books are very successful. She makes a good living though public speaking and television appearances. That’s what we’re all supposed to do – work hard and provide for our families. In retrospect, I am sorry that I doubted her when she quit. Now I see it differently and support her decision. And since this is not the first time she has had to step aside for the greater good, those who are taking our nation down the wrong path had best watch their back. She is not going to take little swipes at them – she’s going in for the kill. Now she stands as the most outspoken critic of the TRAITOR that occupies the White House. When she tweets, people listen. It’s time for both of you to leave the room.

And this is Sarah being very polite about it... just a taste of how formidable and straight talking Sarah Palin will be if she decides to run. We ain’t seen nothing yet people.... it should be a very interesting two years if she does.

Thanks SoCon. Christie is a Jersey Republican. Lot’s of liberal baggage with this guy. His anti-gun stance is just one that I can’t forgive. If you’re a conservative, the 2A isn’t an ammendment you ignore for political expediency.

If Huck declines to run, and she does run, I think she’ll win the nomination in a walk

And if Huckabee decides to run ... would anybody notice? The guy's "ick" factor is sky-high.

Palin has no chance of winning the nomination to begin with, but in any case the Huckabee factor would not be a serious concern for her.

and BOR was a bit rude to her, I didn’t like it...she held her ground though...and said the right things....

YEP he tried that ‘talking down’ crap with annie coulter once or twice to.. till she rolled her eyes and stuck it to him.....once bor realizes he cant back down a particular brainy beauty...he’s all elbows and a##holes....or later he’ll try to talk over them...either way ailes would be way better off turnin his time slot over to laura ingraham, michelle malkin and or annie coulter and sarah too...then that slot would be vastly more dominent and interesting that it is extant...and literally untouchable ratings wise...and a whole lot more fun for the rest of us.

Do you know how that system came about? Hint: the answer is amazingly ironic....

Palin have said nothing but good thigns about Christie for a while, but Christie have made constant jabs at her repeatedly. His jab deserve a response.

Would you say Christie’s should be ashamed of himself and should know better with his constant attack of Palin? Palin did good thigns for her state

Nope, she thwarted the DNC-backed political hit squad that was attacking her, her family, and her administration, and then she took the fight right back to their door step.

Get over yourself, Ms. PDS.

More significant her 2008 budget includes a $3.5 billion payment to their rainy day fund.

Meaning she cut spending by almost 20% in her first year!

That really impressed fiscal conservatives.

Palin was doing a good job in AK as well, yet was Christie’s constant jab at her petty? Palin have said nothing but good things Cristie for a long time, even after getting jabbed a few times before. It was not the first time Christie jabbed at Palin, but this is certainly the first time Palin have responded in kind

Of course you have the freedom to do anything if you don't plan on sticking around for the whole term. But I am sure that would never come up in an election campaign. Certainly Democrats would never think of it.

Looks like these two are running:

She cut the budget from what the legislature wanted to spend - all while having surplus revenues.

You do understand it is the legislature that spends the money right?

Its unbelievable the double standard that Palin critics place her, even from some conservatives. Palin’s critics demand that she go on hostile network and take on hostile interviewers to prove she’s ready, yet they never demand the same from other gop nominees. Obama never been interviewed by any hostile interviewer. The closest is O’reily, which I thought was a joke

That has nothing to do with it. She cannot win and she will not win. For everyone here who is obsessed with her, there are three who hate her and two who like what she stands for but don’t think she is Presidential material. like myself. I speak to Republicans everyday.. Republicans of all stripes..you know, the ones who you need to vote for the Presidential candidate. THEY DON’T WANT HER TO RUN. She isn’t as well liked as you seem to believe she is and all the hoping and screaming and insulting other Republicans will not change that fact.

Not petty at all. CHRISTIE's remarks were petty. Palin's are simply an unanswerable rebuttal. She did a better job as governor. He may yet match her performance, but hasn't yet.

Nope, Palin is not the real deal. She says the right things most of the time but, as with all of us, she is judged by her actions not her words.

Not the "real deal", huh? Sounds like you better get your butt in gear, along with some other Freepers around here because she is gonna run and she will win the nomination.

All you pds'ers need to pull your heads out of your asses!
