Chris Christie to 81% of voters: "♪You're a cold-hearted snake♫..."
by John Urban | Top Right News
Just hours before he became embroiled in a mega-scandal over political dirty tricks in Fort Lee by his office and staff that threatens to derail his presidential ambitions, NJ Gov. Chis Christie made a well-publicized appearance to promote his signing of in-state tuition for illegal aliens.
As unpopular and controversial as was that decision, Christie as usual couldn't help but throw his (ample) weight around, accusing of heartlessness those who opposed giving a tax-payer funded handout to those breaking our laws just to be here.
Surrounded by Hispanic Democrat politicians, students, and amnesty advocates, Christie praised his own signing of his state's so-called DREAM Act on Tuesday, hailing the new law as an economic "investment"and an example of "bi-partisan action".
Christie made his appearance in Union City, which is 80% Hispanic and considered one of the most corrupt cities in the nation -- home base of scandal-plagued Democrat Senator Robert Menendez. The appearance rewarded the Democrat mayor of Union City, who endorsed Christie for re-election last year. (To see how Christie "rewards" those who declined to endorse him, see what happened to the mayor of Fort Lee).
Of his handout to illegals, Christie said:
"Our job, I believe, as a government, is to give every one of these children who we have already invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in, an opportunity to maximize the investment for their benefit, for the benefit of their families, for the benefit of our state and the country," Christie said.And then the ever-nasty Christie couldn't help besmirching the character of those who opposed the bill:
"Even if you're cold-hearted about this, you can agree with the common sense of the economics: An investment made should be an investment maximized," he said.Get that? If you have a problem with handouts for those here illegally, providing an incentive for illegal aliens to come to New Jersey, and hurting New Jersey taxpayers an students to make it happen, you are heartless.
And to this former Federal prosecutor, a handout for those who are violating Federal immigration law, is fine and dandy, so long as he can use it to pander for votes.

This kind of mush headed nonsense from our leadership is destroying this country.
The true sign of a liberal progressive: Spending other people's money is called an investment.
I’d say something, but I don’t want a traffic jam tomorrow morning.
Hey Christie. You want to charge US citizens more for tuition than foreign criminal invaders.... aren’t you a bit heartless??
I would think these laws violate the federal civil rights laws. How can you give illegal aliens the same treatment as residents, and then deny the same in-state tuition to out-of-state Americans?? That is clearly discrimination based on national origin. Out-of-staters should file a class action demanding the same in-state tuition.
It was something like that which killed Rick Perry’s Presidential aspirations
Geeezzzz, he moves any more to the middle he could tip over Guam.
RINOs never learn.
Tolerate a little law breaking and see what ya get?
Christie is the one who is wrong. You do not reward breaking laws.
"If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart," Perry said
Rick Perry is inside Chris Christie and he’s trying to get out.
Yep. I guess Christie didn’t learn anything from that
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!!
The fat ass can’t seem to figure stealing from one taxpayer to give to foreigners is unconstitutional.
Looks that way.
Of course, in a dictatorship the process of representative governing is abandoned to the proclivities of those who rule us. Their righteous indignation is something we must get used to.
I hate our entire political class. Hate every last one of them. They are swine. Even the ones I like I hate.
