Let me say on the record that I dont really care about New Jersey. I know very little about it. But, I know this much: I dont want to live there and I dont want the rest of the United States to resemble New Jersey. For me New Jersey is the Joe Piscopo character asking anyone and everyone Are you from Jersey? Im from Jersey.
Also, Ive never seen the TV show Jersey Shore, but still I dont like it. And know that I dont want the rest of the country to resemble it, either.
Its the state that elected Jon Corzine governor. You know?
So Im a Jersey hater- which is OK because I suppose if Jersey knew me theyd hate me right back.
So were even.
But thats one reason why Ive never understood conservatives fascination with Governor Chris Christie.
I mean, heck: Hes from Jersey.
In general, Im not a fan of Republican politicians, like Chris Christie, who win elections in those liberal east coast states, like New Jersey. One day, Im sure someone will prove me wrong, as an exception, but in general politicians who win state-wide elections in places like New Jersey and Massachusetts are the political equivalent of fishing lures.
Yeah, theyre very pretty in the water, they wiggle a lot to attract attention, they flash and gleam, but once you bite, youre hooked. By the time you try to protest they have you scaled and gutted.
Conservatives know this about guys like Chris Christie, Mitt Romney and Scott Brown, to take recent examples.
Yet they still cant resist the draw to fawn on the pretenders.
Its a kind of a conservative guilt that guys like John McCain try to feed on...

Northwest and most of South Jersey are actually very scenic and very red, far more than any New England state (Reps have half the state’s congressfolks). The problem politically is in the cities and inner suburbs. As far as the “show” Jersey Shore is concerned, the denizens of that “show” are all from Long Island, NOT NJ.
My brother lives a few blocks from Fairleigh-Dickinson(aka Fairly ridiculous). An older 3 bedroom Cape Cod around 1400sf on a 1/4 acre lot. Over 8k in taxes last year and he got off easy. Living worse for more.
But “Christie did what he needed to do to secure federal aid for his state” — RIGHT?
I saw far too many people here defending Christie hugging Hussein.
I’m thinking the Hussein Head “Republicans” will try to sell Christie to us again in 2016.
FU Hussein Heads!
I am not thrilled with Christie or Hagel, but I find it really interesting that conservatives are bashing both of them (probably deserved), but you never see liberals bashing their DINOs or so called Democrats. I think the Democrats are loving this which of course is why Obama picked Hagel. I tell you politically, Obama is winning because he shows the carrot and conservatives go right for it. I think ignoring Hagel and just voting him down is the best way to deal instead of all this media negativity...same with Christie...just ignore him. We let a hug cause a loss of four years of Republican President??? Are we seriously that stupid?
“We let a hug cause a loss of four years of Republican President??? Are we seriously that stupid?”
I’m trying to understand how criticizing Christie sucking up to Hussein cost Romney more votes than so many here saying, “There is NO WAY I am voting for a Mormon” or “I’m going to stay home to send a STRONG message to the GOP”.
