Skip to comments.On ‘Late Night,’ Christie Rolls Eyes at Prospect of Palin Presidency
Posted on 11/23/2010 10:20:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Faced with the prospect of a President Sarah Palin, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican partys darling from another coast, shook his head and rolled his eyes.
I dont know, but its an amazing world, he said to Jimmy Fallon during a taping of Tuesdays Late Night show.
Christie brought his sharp tongue to the talk show Tuesday after the two traded barbs over Twitter when the Republican governor canceled a long-planned Hudson River train tunnel.
Fallon had joked that New Yorkers would now have to get to New Jersey as they usually do by accident.
You think its funny, Jimmy? Christie challenged Fallon on the show, which airs at 12:35 a.m. You know what we do to people like that in Jersey?
Christie, known by Trenton insiders for his wit and occasionally foul language, turned serious and said New Jersey shouldnt have to pay for the tunnel while New York stands idly by.
Theres nothing New Jersey hates more than getting screwed by New York, he said....

Politicians, yes, people, no.
Or he might just be tired of 2012 election questions when there’s so much to do right now. Just an alternative thought, though.
Cristie and Romney have become the two the anti-Palin ppl have put their hopes in, to stop Palin
Yes, they’d like nothing better than to start a Republican civil war.
How many times foes Christie have to say he’s not running. Let him finish his job,
Christie...? Pro choice, no?
christie is pro amnesty, pro castle, pro global warming. The only thing he’s good at is the fiscal side and a fighter
He could have been rolling his eyes at the silliness of the moron asking the question of him.
The printed word often doesn't accurately portray the context in which statements were made, nor does it convey the setting, mood, body language, tone of voice, etc.
Then again, maybe Gov Christie was expressing incredulity at the question. Could be - but watch what happens as soon as the Sarah Express takes off. Lots of weasely politicians and journOlists will act as though they've never had a single cross word for her.
“Is the whole Northeast defective?”
You nailed that one spot on.
A big bag of a$$holes.
I know, I’m here.
And, don’t forget pro cap and trade also.....
I don't let journalists make judgments for me
Doesn’t read like he refudiated the idea....
There are many of us behind enemy lines. It's getting so bad up here that some of the so called conservative talk show hosts are turning into schmucks. Jay Severin, a big Romney supporter, rips Sarah Palin every chance he gets, and he's been trashing Bristol almost daily, and he has a lot of influence with the independents in this state. Between the Liberals and conservatives like him, there's no way she's going to take this state, but that was a given anyway.
Settle down there Christie, but you did just blow your chance at speaking at the 2012 GOP Convention.
My aunt was the school nurse at Rutgers for many years. She is very far-left, as are the rest of my relatives there.
Agreed, but it's hard to say whether he did or not, without seeing the video.
When he was running for Gov., the only thing we could get about his stance on immigration was that he was quoted as saying just being here illegally is not illegal, or something similar.
Now that he is Gov, he is quoted saying that we need a clear path to citizenship but not what that means. He also has said things against the AZ law, claiming that only the FED should deal with immigration.
I don't know what his view is on amnesty, but I do remember his views on the 2nd amendment being pretty clear.
He supports strong enforcement of the states current laws, as is, but he believes, in the 2nd amendment, and is not in favor of any more gun control laws.
Thats pretty much the position of the NRA also.
Like I would vote for that fat tub of lard ... a walking heart attack ... only if he had a conservative VP and then I would have to hold my nose.
If this guy is pro immigration, pro cap and trade; etc; he shouldn’t be considered as POTUS. How is he on Obamacare?
They sure don’t want a conservative in office.
and pro mosque
Just lost half of my respect for Cristie...
The mosque thing did it for me along with amnesty.
He is just a cheap lib.
Well, it’s needed! Half of the Republicans seem to think that they are the elitist granted the power to serve us peons while the other half thinks that Sarah Palan and her ideas would be best. You can decide - but it’s time to stop putting down the other side (you know, those peons).
America was and will continue to be governed by the people regardless of what the elites (both parties) seem to think...
Yep. He’s the Scott Brown of the month. His talking tough to the teachers unions mat be entertaining, but it is more that than consequential. What he actually has to show for it is minimal, and it probably reveals a jerky personality more than anything.
Last I heard, NJ has not joined in with the lawsuits among the states against Obamacare....
Sound the alarm! He wasn’t completely in love with St. Sarah!
“Sound the alarm! He wasnt completely in love with St. Sarah!”
Non-conservatives aren’t. Why sound an alarm?
“Or he might just be tired of 2012 election questions when theres so much to do right now. Just an alternative thought, though.”
Impossible. Everything that is said must be judged as either unfavorable to Palin or not. /sarc
>Yep. Hes the Scott Brown of the month.
Yup. After Brown got what he wanted, he threw the Tea Party under the bus.
I’ve already wagered to anyone that Marco Rubio is a potential RINO. No one took my bet. There is no true 100% conservative on the GOP.
“Impossible. Everything that is said must be judged as either unfavorable to Palin or not. /sarc”
I don’t understand the /sarc. It is true. She is dominating politics right now. Quite a trick for a rube from the sticks who is a quitter and a dumb broad. I wonder how she does it?
When the Times comes tomorrow, I will have to read an analysis. /real sarc
Very disrespectful...rolling eyes and laughing?
Real mature way to treat a good person and a Republican like Palin.
He treats Obama with more respect.
The WSJ is now a left wing operation and this hit piece is classic divide and conquer rubbish.
How does this lefty know he rolled his eyes or why ??
Is she a mind reader ??
This is pure BS meant to divide the GOP !
I liked the guy but he is a mega HUGE Springsteen fan, which means deep down - he is an idiot.
He has seen idiot Bruce literally hundreds of times.
“Sound the alarm! He wasnt completely in love with St. Sarah!”
Sound the alarm! PDS victim on deck.
One of the guys I work with likes to listen to conservative talk radio also. He's told me that every once in a while, someone will come over and change the channel on his radio, because they don't like what he's listening to. They don't ask him...they'll just come right over and change it.
He is anti gun too. He is a HUGE Springsteen fan - like rabid aka which means he is an idiot. Springsteen’s songs are incredibly shallow and childish.
Yeah sure, that’s why he endorsed Mike Castle in DE. He’s a RINO for the most part.
A true statesman he’ll never be.
Thread after thread of you insulting freerepublic and freepers to no end other than simple trolling.
Woo hoo!! FR is Palin Country!!

See post 46.
(from the New Yorker)
He declined Palins offer to stump for himhave endeared him to members of the GOPs sane wing. The breakthrough hes scoring in New Jersey is hugely promising, says David Frum, a conservative writer who fears that the Republican Party is being swallowed by the tea party.
Christie is also moderate enough that they know he will not be easily consigned to the Tea Party tea chest when the going gets rough if he decided to run.
Speak for yourself.
He will be an instant loser if he runs for Pres. Having Frum and the New Yorker in your hip pocket is poison to the right. He will lose the South. Lose the South West where immigration is an issue. Lose the bible belt. He doesn’t even show up on the radar for Pres hopefuls.
This hole issue is moot. He should focus on saving NJ instead of screwing around. Results matter. And getting into bed with Mayor Bloomberg for some expensive subway dig isn’t one of them.
