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:

Yeah she slap Christie a good one...in a nice backhanded way! I guess after Chris kept saying she needs to do more unscripted moments, she just did.

Palin: “Christie has no choice but to cut. His state is BROKE. Real courage is what you do in the face of a surplus, which is what I did when I reigned in govt.”

Interviewer: “Do you think Christie is inspirational?”

Palin: “I think tea party Americans are inspirational.”

I remember when someone said that when she could take on and shut down Bill O’Reilly then she was ready to run.

Well...she did it tonight.

She did it in a very good way too....said she apologized that because she was in Alaska the 4 second delay interfered with her being able to answer questions completely...and then went on to say what she wanted to say - without interruption.

BOR’s mouth was literally hanging open.

What is petty is the remark that Christie said about Palin.

Amen. We need Governors, Presidents, and congress critters who will do what is right regardless of the situation. Cut excessive spending. PERIOD.

Cristy, go to hell. I won’t vote for you even if you are running solely against Barak the Muslim Usper Obama.

I will take my name off the roles so I don’t have to be burdened with Jury Duty. Screw you. I like you as governor, but not hell no as governor.

I won’t by your crap that you are “drafted” into running. Do your job. PERIOD!

She has a point, a very good point.

This ties in with Paul Johnson's praising her courage, and saying that courage is the most important virtue for a politician to possess.

Thatcher had it. Reagan had it. Palin has it.

It’s just amazing how otherwise reasonably intelligent people try to take on Palin. She’s always severfal steps ahead of them and has the creds to boot.

He appears to have been an effecgtive federal prosecdutor. But, compared to Palin, has no governing track record. Looked good on reining in unions, but the Wisconsin governor has stollen his show. The Wis. governor is going after the root of the union problem while Christie is nibbling at the edges.

Other than his avowed anti-union stance and, perhaps, supporting a strong nstional defense he is a typical NJ pol—socially liberal.

Christy is a lying sack of crap. He want’s to be “drafted” into the presidential run. I won’t vote for him. PERIOD.

If, he has future national aspirations, he needs to currently state, “I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected.” - General William Tecumseh Sherman

Otherwise, he is a POS.

Because she feels compelled to respond to every slight, real or imagined.

Isn’t Chris Christie pretty close to having more time under his belt as governor than Mrs. Palin?

It astounds me why so many people look up to a lazy quitter whose admitted healthcare plan was to handout $700 billion to the failed investment banks.

Have him state cleary;

“If drafted, I will not run; if nominated, I will not accept; if elected, I will not serve.”

Let him do his job in his state, and we will consider him in 8 years.

Looks like she may have her facts wrong. Her budgets were fiscal 08 and 09:

Fiscal Year Expenditures (billions)
2000 $8.5
2001 $9.0
2002 $9.4
2003 $9.7
2004 $10.0
2005 $10.0
2006 $10.8
2007 $11.6
2008 $12.5
2009 $13.4

A) Since Christie never had the luxury of a surplus there can be no apples-apples.

B) Palin imposed a windfall tax on energy companies even though she had a surplus. At least two of those companies took their new business elsewhere.

Tough to talk about real courage after quitting.
