5 Reasons Sarah Palin Not Supporting Chris Christie
New Jersey Newsroom ^ | November 13, 2013 | Bob Holt

Posted on 11/14/2013 1:20:39 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin took time out from her book tour to offer her thoughts on the 2016 presidential election.

Governor Chris Christie is considered the Republican frontrunner in some circles, but Palin isn’t in his corner. She says the Party doesn’t have to “settle” for any particular candidate.

Palin said in a Fox News interview, according to Politico, “We certainly don’t have to settle for any candidate that would go along with an agenda that stifles our economy and would strip any of our freedoms that are constitutionally protected.”

Also, in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Palin said that female politicians face more scrutiny than men, especially concerning their physical appearance. After Tapper mentioned comments about Christie’s appearance, Palin responded, according to Mediaite, “That’s because it’s been extreme, okay. It’s hard for some people not to comment on it.”

Palin also was not happy with Christie’s criticism of the Tea Party’s role in the government shutdown. She said, according to Today.com, “When you stand in the middle of the road, you’re going to get hit on both sides of the road. “We need to take a stand and support those who are fulfilling their campaign promises. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, some of these guys were actually fulfilling their campaign promises and they ask for debate. They took the stand, and fought for us to debate the issue of Obamacare.”

And Palin doesn’t care for Christie’s position on gun control. Christie has signed some gun control laws, but refused to sign others. According to Politico, she said it was a “little bit of a flirting with disaster when it comes to trying to win over constitutionalists, talking about some stripping of our Second Amendment rights. That’s going to be tough to overcome.”

In an interview, Fox’s Sean Hannity asked Palin whether Christie’s appearances with President Obama right after Hurricane Sandy hurt Mitt Romney’s chances for the presidency. “I think it was unnecessary to literally be embracing Barack Obama at the time of such national import when it came to that campaign season, she said, according to Fox News. "Any GOP member who would go that direction instead of standing strong on the planks in our platform, I question their commitment to the free markets and the freedom that's made America such an exceptional nation.”

ADN.com reported that Palin began a tour promoting her new book "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas," drawing more than 700 fans to a Barnes and Noble in Bethlehem Township, Pennsylvania.

OK Sarah closer than Christie to ideal? True.

Am I staying home if Christie is nominated? False

Will a 3rd party hurt more than help? True

Would Christie be Governor if he was pro 2nd Ammendment? Probably

So we should vote for either, but push them further right, whoever it is.

That might’ve worked on me in 1996, 2008 or 2012. I’m done with it.

They already are, AP radio news was doing that yesterday afternoon. Look at what pundits have said about her and even her children. I think she should have said “Christie is a panty waist RINO who served as the model for Humpty Dumpty.”

Silky Pony is still pretty. Stay Puff is losing weight so it can't rise to the same level.

Not sure if that's dark humor or twisted humor. I'll have to sleep on it.

Seems the weight loss is stalling. Maybe Crispie needs to take up smoking crack and run for mayor somewhere in Canada. He appeals to nobody outside the northeast, the MSM, and RINO consultants and establishment Republicans.

Because the idiot insulted her in name. Lost whatever bit of respect I had for the clown that day.

Christie is the typical NE Republican putz that’s too intelligent for a broad like Palin...

Go Sarah!

Reasons NOT to consider Christie for anything:
#1 He's a liberal
#2 He's a liberal
#3 He's a liberal
etc.

There are some of us who are sick and tired of the talk like a conservative but govern like a ‘Rat GOPe...

And then there are some who are to stupid to see through their lies....

I'll let you guess which group you are in.

I’m in the parking lot at work now. 40 mile commute works best if you leave early. I’ll go in at 7 CS. I could go in at 8 but 7 to 4 works best for me. I hope it sticks too.

And we might as well just roll over and die. I hate the choices we have been getting, but any choice would be better than the machine of destruction that wins when we get so discouraged that we can't hold our noses for the lesser of two evils. To do so ensures the greater evil prevails. We can try to influence the Primaries to get some good candidates - if that fails, I'm voting for the lesser evil. The Dims have taken little steps for decades to get where they're at - we seem to have some sense that we can turn it all around in one fell swoop - - - if only we ever had the perfect candidate to vote for. Nobody can convince me that a really crappy McCain - with a Palin to give us hope, would have been as bad as an Obama. Same goes for a Romney over Obama. Until we can go all-in for our candidate in the actual election, as the Dims always do, we are doomed to keep adding oil to the chute we are sliding down.

I like the term Rinocrat.

Question: just why on God's green earth would we choose the same that has lead to ruin the past 2 times out?

McRino was ‘loved’ by the Nat. Socialist Media - until it was too late.

The Nat. Socialist Media choose Romney for us - disaster again.

Why should we do this a third time???

Because he’s a human buffet barge/pie wagon/tub of LARD!!!?

I’m hefty myself but not that huge. You have to wonder what the stresses of Presidential office would do to someone as rotund as Governor Crisco.

I agree with 2nddivisionvet. In fact I lived it. I will not vote for Christie for Pres.

I refuse to vote for Meehan, my congressional rep, because he has failed to hold anyone accountable despite being on Oversight and for his staunch defense of the congressional staffers stipend for ACA. I will vote for his primary challenger if he has one, and then the democrat to oust him if needed.

I have never done this, but after all those years of Specter & Republican Party fiascoes, feel I have to. The Republican Party lost my financial donations years ago...now they will loose my vote.

I am tired of following the Buckley law. It has gotten us a bloated, invasive, obnoxious, out of control govt.

“As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist: He is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational art, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier. Other than that, he’s a great military man.”

—H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr., CENTCOM commander’s briefing, February 28, 1991

Yeah, it’s kind of like that.

I understand the sentiment - I only donate to individual candidates these days and am very selective. However, If we all refuse to vote for a flawed RINO, it will ensure that Odumbo is not the last of his kind and the year that ObamaCare went into effect will soon be looked upon as the good old days.

Some folks are fine with that and keep hoping that we will either get the miracle Repub or we go so far down the tubes that there is blood in the streets as the Left does some "housecleaning".

If we are to fight effectively, it has to be before the primaries to try to get some decent candidates to choose from and then stay behind the best of them - folks blame Romney for destroying the competition but he couldn't have done it without some complicity as we let the better candidates go down the drain. Many bought into the slurs against Cain and others and protested not as they slipped away - mainly because the bar of "The Perfect Conservative" was set so high that they didn't measure up enough to rally around.

There's complaining and there's "active apathy" and self immolation - our side seems to have moved to the apathy/immolation stage. When we submit that we will not vote for someone who is nominally on our side, it is akin to telling Afghanistan's terrorists that they have won because we won't stand in their way anymore.
