"I think Newt Gingrich has embarrassed the party over time," Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said on NBC's "Meet the Press" this morning. "Whether he'll do again in the future, I don't know. But Gov. Romney never has."

Top Willard surrogate Spanky Christie says Newt has "embarrassed" the party. No, his liberal buddy who's running against Newt has embarrassed the party because liberals belong in the democratic party. Both these RINOs need to switch parties.

Christie is a member of the Republican party.

He must now be removed...expelled...by whatever by-laws allow it.

These leftscum GOP elites just don’t get it. We’re MAD. We want a FIGHTER. That’s Newt. The fact he is the smartest man in just about any room he’s in is a (huge) bonus.

While we too have concerns about his past, they pale compared to the concerns we have about another milquetoast leftscum GOP elite. That would be Romney.

Go the #### Christie and the establishment GOP. This is war, and in war, you need a FIGHTER!

It is amazing to me how these so-called conservatives will absolutely trash Newt, after endlessly promoting the inept moderate candidates of the past such as John McCain, Bob Dole, Bush Jr., etc.

Dear Chris Christie

Please shut you hole, you fat tub of crap.

Sincerely,

Adam

It’s nice to know that the governor of the state of New Jersey has a handle on what’s embarrassing to the Republican Party. And given that he is apparently an expert on this subject, perhaps he could opine on whether it would be embarrassing to have as a Republican nominee for President a person who gave political donations to Massachusetts Democrats while he was still a Republican?

Mitt Romney trashing Sarah Palin through his surrogates during the 2008 election was one of the biggest embarrassments for the GOP since Nixon.

That’s funny.

Wasn’t the GOP hiring consultants and “rebranding” just a few short years ago when the Dems. all but drove them into the sea?

The “Party” embarrassed ITSELF and patriotic Americans said screw it, we’re taking it back from you clowns. “The Party” can cry more.

Christie is going to be the next McCain/Romney RINO that runs. Hopefully Gingrich can win and stay in for 8 years and keep Christie out.

This is one of the side benefits of this process. People out themselves.

Romniacs have been trashing conservatives all along. Of the people trashing Palin, those who were Repubs were Romniacs. Of the people trashing the “tea party”, those who were Repubs were Romniacs.

If Christie just said Mitt’s the better man, or I support Mitt because of his policies or his personal brilliance, then I don’t have a problem with him. But, no, he has to trash Gingrich. That seems to be the Romniac modus operandi.

He joins Rove, and Fund, and a list of others who make it a point to trash their conservative rivals.

LOLOLOLOL Romney has done nothing more than being a total embarrassement for the Republican Party. Only a Democrat could be proud of Romney’s “accomplishments” as Mass Governor.

Every time I hear this guy talk all I can think of is - why doesn’t he have a salad?

While on the other hand I have no problem listening to Gingrich.

Christie is not the one to be talking about embarrassing.

I mean, Please!...

Rest assured...when a RINO like Christy says "embarrassed the party", he is NOT talking about you and me...he's catering to the beltway elites.

They's shaking in their boots now that Newt has taken them to task.

Newt has embarrassed the party. You don’t remember him sitting on the couch with Nancy Pelosi making an advertisement promoting the concept of man made climate change? I remember it and will never vote for him.

When will these libtard elitist Republican establishment pricks learn that they don’t tell us what to think and the GOP doesn’t tell us what to think?

If that phony SOB Christie wants to talk tough, he can bring that BS to me and we will see who’s tough. They had better learn to “dance with the folks that brung ‘em to the party”, or they will be walking home when the PARTY (as in GOP) is over.

WHO’S an embarassment??
Why should we lend any credence to what this muzzie loving slob says?

“Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy!” he cried. “The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,” adding with disgust and frustration that “it’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.”

And he also testified to Congress against Crap and Tax. And wrote a book in 2008, Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less. He has said that posing with Pelosi was one of the dumbest things he’s ever done. But then there ARE people like you who eat up the MSM talking points. Such a shame.

If you want a fighter who would fight for you from 9am to 5pm you have to accept that he will be fighting for his other interests between 5pm and 9am. You get the whole package.

While I believe your premise is flawed, I’d accept that. Because now our “leaders” “fight” for us from 12:00:00 noon to 12:00:01pm for a photo op. If we’re lucky.

This polarization between the Rinos and their limo-liberal elitist pals and the unwashed masses must stop. Shut the American people up before the one-party global fascist government ideal is wrecked.
