Skip to comments.RINO Alert: Christine Todd Whitman Calls for "New GOP"
Posted on 01/30/2009 6:17:42 AM PST by nysuperdoodle
In the frenetic reaction to the drubbing the GOP experienced this fall at the polls, more than one person has made suggestions on how the GOP can rebound. If we're not vigilant, the GOP will continue becoming Democrat-lite. That couldn't be any more evident than with people like Christy Todd Whitman...

Isn’t she a Rino?
Sometimes flushing twice still doesn’t clear away the mess.
I guess this nitwit needs a third flush to clear her out good.
Whitman is a perfect example of why the GOP is in the mess it is in.
Yes she is.......
It's time to cull the herd.
“the Democrats captured the hearts of the younger generation in this election. They did so with a promise of hope and opportunity.”
Sorry, miss RINO, they won over the young idiots by making barack a SOOPA-STAR via the media -END OF STORY.
NOBODY cared about his policies... except CONSERVATIVES, who saw them for what they were - SOCIALISM.
She’s been on this soapbox as long as AlGore has been sermonizing about Global Warming. She is a RINO; she served President Bush ill and she doesn’t play well with others.
Ignore her; she is irrelevant.
I’d like a new GOP, too: and the House Republicans are off to a good start—rejecting the idiocy of BHO, Pelosi and Reid.
Christi Todd Whitman has done enough damage to the Party. She and Peggy Noonan ought to go out somewhere, have tea together, and leave the work to real patriots. Geez, haven’t these two done enough damage already?
I am starting to agree with something Rush said a couple of weeks ago. Maybe we conservatives are the “RINOS”. It sure seems like there are more moderates and liberals in the GOP.
CINOS are insane. We know this is the case with Juan McCain. We always knew it. We just put it in the back of our minds for a bit cause we had to. But anybody that remembers Ronald Reagan and even belongs to the same party he did and today thinks the pubbie party needs to be more like the rat party ... is insane. Or evil.
Revolution or secession. America is already gone. Perhaps another can arise from the ashes.
Took you long enough.
John McLame said she would make a great president
then several letters (w/punctuation):
Why doesn’t she start a new party, and call it something else?
We dont need a new GOP. We need a Conservative Party, and Christy Todd Whitman will be no part of it.
Whitman was appointed to the EPA by Bush. She woulnd up attacking her boss on environmental issues.
Her “bagman” multi-millionaire Eisenberg, set up a PAC to support “moderate” Republicans and defeat conservative ones.
Whitman personally campaing AGAINST Oliver North when he ran for office in Virginia while she was NJ Governor.
When she was running against arrogant liberal Democrat Governor Florio of New Jersey, Bob Grant, a local conservative Radio host, supported her and had her on his show. Later when the Clinton Administration attacked Grant for alleged “racist” comments about a crooked Clinton appointee who was killed in a plane crash - the comments were NOT racist - Whitman STABBED HIM IN THE BACK.
Whitman also precided over an administration wracked with economic problems like awarding a contract to an E-ZEE pass firm which was highly controversial.
She’s a political nitwit and a dangerous RINO.
I agree that Revolution/Civil War II is looking more and more necessary all the time. The first thing we’d need to do is shut down the liberal media. Taking CNN and MSNBC headquarters wouldn’t be all that hard. Shutting off the flow of propaganda would be a good first step.
Hah! The GOP has been Democrat-lite for some time now.
A successful new GOP has to focus on ‘all politics is local’. This involves three facets 1] Social Issues 2] Economy Issues 3] Foreign policy Issues. RINOs think changing the first but being indifferent to the other two will make a difference. This fails to recognize that it was the job economy and the ME war that caused the bailout of previous GOP voters.
Without new approaches to the instruments of defeat, the new GOP will be sameold, sameold losers.
After all, mcidiot is the very best the repubs could produce for the last election....
He can tell her what the repubs need to do to build back the GOP!
The battlelines are becoming clearer, refer to an 1860 map at you local library.To be continued...
This woman can’t get elected in a State that’s as corrupt and falling apart as New Jersey.
GRRREAT FReeper comments BUMP!
“Why can’t all Republicans be more like the ones up here?”
“You mean out of office, Governor?”
I mean, really. I don’t sit around and poke pins into voodoo dolls of Christie Whitman, or kindle the fireplace with copies of “It’s My Party Too”, or anything like that, but come on. The conservative wing of the party at its worst kinda sorta works. The liberal wing is flat out getting its butt kicked. Those folks are running against even more liberal Democrats and their electorates, given the choice between the Diet Coke of evil and the Coke Classic of evil, are opting for the real thing. The idea that they have much helpful to say in the situation is ridiculous.
Are you a liberal trying to associate FR with violence and treason? You sound like one.
If you can’t take over the GOP, what makes you think you could start a viable third party?
Go suck an egg.
You wouldn’t have to deal with the vested interests which have destroyed the Republican Party and the two party system with it.
The poisonous impact of the money from people like Whitman and McCain et al, pullutes any possibility of getting a candidate who is a real alternative to the Democrats from ever getting nominated in the first place.
I am tired of arguing with you people. If your really believe that go and build your little party. It will go nowhere. After a few years of failure, maybe you’ll wise up and realize that the Republican party is the only viable alternative to the Democrats. Until you wise up, you are the true poisonous impact on the GOP.
Michael Steele: GOP should reach out to gay, pro-choice voters
Michael Steele, the new chairman of the Republican National Committee wants the GOP to reach out to candidates who support gay marriage and are pro-choice. Steele told Fox’s Chris Wallace that it was “important” to reach out to those voters.
Chris WALLACE: You are one of the co-founders of something called the Republican Leadership Council which supports candidates who favor abortion and gay rights.
WALLACE: Does the GOP needs to do a better job of reaching out to people who hold those views?
STEELE: I think — I think that’s an important opportunity for us, absolutely. Within our party we do have those who have that view as well as outside and my partnership with Christy Todd Whittman was an effort to build a bridge between moderates and conservatives.
Want to build a bridge from moderates to this conservative?
You will have an easier time building a bridge from California to Hawaii.
I have nothing in common with either homosexuals or pro-abortionists except a sinful nature.
The biggest difference is that I don't demand everyone respect, accept and celebrate my sins.
“After a few years of failure, maybe youll wise up and realize that the Republican party is the only viable alternative to the Democrats”
Except on rare occasions (recent House vote on the spending bill) the GOP is so close to the Dems....how can you call them an “alternative?” That’s like saying that Ted Bundy was an alternative to John Wayne Gacy because at least Ted was straight!

Chrissie Whitman was not only a liberal and hardly distinct from the Democrats, she was also a nitwit. Her policies regarding the government employee pension system helped create the mess over that issue New Jersey is currently facing.
YOU people simply don't get it. The average American is far more conservative and traditional than either the Democrats or the Republican “moderates” (read liberals).
Republicans get blasted nationwide when they try to follow the route of the Rockefellers and Whitmans - that is Democrat lite. The liberals and some moderates then vote Democrat and the mass of conservatives stay home. McCain lost in part because a lot of conservatives simply didn;t buy his rhetoric and his actions since Obama indicate their assessment of his character was correct.
The reason poison in the Republican Party are people who think like Democrats and others who feel that is the only way we can win. If most American voters support the kind of leftist ideas Whitman and the Democrats support, its all over anyway. And I and a lot of conservative Americans simply reject that.
The Republican Party is NO alternative to the Democrats as long as nitwits like Chrissie Whitman or ex-Democrat Eisenberg and his buddies have any influence in it.
