Chris Christie was Wrong, John Boehner Right On delaying Pork-filled superstorm Sandy bill
IBD copied and pasted by blogger onto blog for blog hits ^ | January 3, 2012

A pork-barrel feast of goodies for federal agencies to fix museum roofs in D.C. and aid fisheries in Alaska, cooked up in the middle of the night, is not the way to aid hurricane victims or run a government.

As if the fallout from agreeing to a bad deal that raises the debt by $4 trillion and accepts a 41-1 ratio in tax hikes to spending cuts weren't enough, Speaker of the House John Boehner has New Jersey's Chris Christie on his case.

"There's only one group to blame," the New Jersey governor said of the Sandy relief bill that was not included in the fiscal cliff deal, "the House Majority and John Boehner."

Christie, the man who hugged President Obama during his post-hurricane photo-op for doing a "good job," can't understand why Boehner, in a brief moment of fiscal sanity, decided the pork-laden Sandy relief bill might need a tad more examination before we rush to fix the roof on the Smithsonian Institution and subsidize fisheries in hurricane-ravaged Alaska.

"The House majority failed the most basic test of leadership," Christie said Wednesday, as the new year dawned, "and they did so with callous disregard to the people of my state."

The Dean in Animal House said "fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life," but Christie seems intent on giving it the old college try.

Couldn’t agree more. Trying for 2016 already? Whatever happened to read the bill? If he had, he would have understood the reasons for the holdup. I’m tired of the pile on.

These bills are never for the people. They are a way to shift money around to the lazy asses in Congress.

He and Bloomburg are RINO’s of a feather. He’s a real crybaby. He should be crying to Zero, who promised he’d fix everything right away with his Obamabucks.

What is the difference between the NJ Capo's veto of the Commuter Tunnel to NY and the House not voting on the pile of pork in the Sandy Rescue Bill?

NONE!

In NY the unions did send them home, I don’t think NJ did, but not sure.

The only thing that Boehner did half right except like the spineless coward that he is....he did not explain why he did it.

He and Christie both can gTH IMHO. Sick to death of these gutless rudderless politicians!

You got that right! Where do they come up with these huge round numbers like $60billion? Does anybody really do the math?

The only logical approach is a two-step process. Get enough out there to solve emergency problems - then do the work to see what else is really needed.

I hate to be unfeeling - but is it OK to just not have insurance anymore?

I have no doubt Christie would punch his own grandmother in the mouth if it would speed up his cut of that 60 billion taxpayer dollars.

This is why Democrats win and Republicans lose. I haven’t heard a word from any Republicans as to why they rejected the Sandy Bill.

Dems under attack fight back. Republicans act like martyrs. Stupid martyrs at that, like the idiot Bush.

A $60 billion package translates as a $200 tax on every man, woman, and child in this country.

The full length version of this picture looks hilarious. It looked like Porky Pig shaking hands with Gumby. Or the Grimace shaking hands with Squidward from Spongebob Squarepants.

I heard that it was full of pork. I heard that most of the funds wouldn’t be distributed for months so it wasn’t urgent to pass the bill.

My problem is that the Republicans allow themselves to be attacked without very verbally fighting back. They should be raising all sorts of hell at Chrisie, and explaining in no uncertain terms exactly why they refused the funds.

They have not done this effectively, nor do they ever.

“”The House majority failed the most basic test of leadership,” Christie said Wednesday, as the new year dawned, “and they did so with callous disregard to the people of my state.””

Yes, a Governor always makes sure he leaves his state dependent upon federal largesse liberally and immediately applied.

The basic test of leadership for Governors is you step up, clean up, and devote YOUR resources after a disaster, not look at it as yet another chance to fleece the feds.

If New Jersey is that broke, he need only look at himself as the problem.

You’re right about that. Republicans seem to be the biggest wimps on the planet. As if they like having the bus driven over them.

Hey Porkie, why don’t you put the blame where it belongs — on the pork producers.
