Christie: Lautenberg 'a waste of my time'
Politicker New Jersey ^ | August 7, 2012 | Bill Mooney

Posted on 08/08/2012 7:09:49 AM PDT by ZULU

TRENTON – The response was short and not-so-sweet.

After Democratic U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg chastised Gov. Chris Christie earlier today for the governor’s stance on gun control, Christie was asked for his reaction to the congressman’s remarks.

“I don’t have any reaction to Senator Lautenberg,’’ Christie said. “He is a waste of my time.”

Earlier story:

Lautenberg criticizes Christie’s response to massacres


TOPICS: Culture/Society; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: christie; secondamendment
Slam them when they are wrong and praise them when they are right.

This is an opportunity for all Second Amendment supporters to send Chris Christie an message of support and thanks for slamming Lautenberg on this subject. It might be a good idea to cc that bastard Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) with a copy.

You can be SURE that the many Lautenberg-Bots who keep electing this Octagenarian leftist misfit will be sending Christie negative critical missives on this subject and letters of support to Lautenberg.

Its important both Christie and Lautenberg know where most Americans stand on this subject. It will encourage Christie and discourage Lautenberg - if possible. At this point I'm not sure his neural receptors are functing but that never keeps him from running - and getting elected.

“I don’t have any reaction to Senator Lautenberg,’’ Christie said. “He is a waste of my time.”

It wouldn’t hurt the Romney camp to start using this approach with Harry Reid and the Tax Returns...because it’s the truth!

Romney’s already weighed in on the 1st amendment; will he say 2nd amendment issues are also not a part of his campaign?

Go to his campaign wensite and check it out. He’s fairly clear.

At any rate, he’s far better than Obama. I’m not enough of a purist to ignore a helping hand from a pirate when I’m being threatened by a lion.

Just wasn’t sure since he says his campaign’s not interested in the 1st Amendment, at least as far as Mr. Cathy’s rights are concerned...

That is a very foolish video as it turns off and even scares those who may agree with you on most issues but whom do not share your religious beliefs.
If you succeed in framing the election in religious issues you lose.
Frame it in constitutional and economic issues and we win.

What’s your point?

That’s all we have this cycle. If you can’t vote for Romney, you’ll be voting for Obama; even if you stay home.

OH. NOW I understand what video.

# 1 - I’m not Catholic

# 2 - The video is NOT foolish.

# 3 - It MASTERFULLY points out the anti-God agenda and the far left and what their success in the 2012 will mean for us.

I think YOU are foolish for not “getting” it.

I agree. The time to be a purist is in the primaries; in the general election, most of the time your job as a citizen is to stop the worst of the 2 major party candidates (because, for literally 2/3 of our history, only an "R" or a "D" has been President). Like it or not (and I guarantee everyone that I don't), these are the facts that we have to deal with. We are all entitled to our own opinion, but not our own facts.

BTW, bmwcyle, just to establish my bona fides, I voted for Reagan twice in both 1980 and 1984, wanted Fred Thompson in '08 and Newt this time around (but would've been happy with Santorum). I thought that Fred, Newt and Rick would've made excellent Presidents.

BTW, I also voted for Klintoon in '92 - because "Do you think Bush (41) is a Conservative? He is not." I, like many others, couldn't stomach GHWB - I thought that he lied out of every orifice in his body about being a conservative, and I had really voted for Reagan's third term in 1988, thinking that (based on his campaign speeches and debates) the elitist SOB had learned something over the prior 8 years. So in '92 I wanted to "send a message" to the RINO elites that they "had to pay attention to" - and anyway, that oafish hick, Klintoon, would get his arse kicked in '96. Well, that didn't work out so well, did it? Not only didn't Klintoon lose in '96, but the RINO elite gave us f'ing Bob Dole. I learned my lesson - never again will I vote anything but R in the general election, at least until a credible, and truly conservative, 3rd party exists and runs a credible candidate. Why? Because it is a metaphysical guarantee that WHOMEVER the Dems nominate in any given election cycle WILL be worse than the Republican, and be likely be worse by orders of magnitude. The President proposes budgets, nominates ALL federal judges, nominates ALL cabinet officials and names all lower-ranking cabinet officers, decides our military and foreign policy, issues Executive Orders, negotiates treaties, has pretty much unlimited access to the media, controls the Dept. of Justice, etc., etc., etc. Anyone reading this whose home planet has a blue sky KNOWS that Obama has been an utter disaster on multiple fronts, and that to elect him again is to place the very existence of the Republic in serious jeopardy. Romney, for all of his (very many) faults, is a genuine and genuinely loyal American, someone who will try to maximize economic freedom and will stand up for this country vs. our enemies and back our allies (we'll have to work on a lot of the rest). However, Obama has shown that he will do none of these things and, in fact, we'll do the opposite, but harder in this term (when he has zero accountability to us).

Better half or a quarter of a loaf than none, and better ANYONE than Obama (well, not the Hildabeast, but you get my drift).

Regrettably, politics is the art of compromise. If you can get 60% of what you want, be happy; if you can get 70%, take it and run; if you think that you can get 100%, you are delusional.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Ronald Reagan

I am quite confident that if Reagan were alive, he'd be voting for Romney, despite the fact that there would be many points of disagreement that they would have - because Reagan understood the big picture, and he would understand that the freedom we have is in extreme danger, and will be in mortal danger with another 4 years of Obama.

Reagan is not alive. Only paid off servants of the liberal elite are left. That is no choice.

I voted for Steve Lonegan in the primaries, IIRC republican turn out was around 10%. We deserve what we get, that being said I am not totally disappointed with Christie and he is 100% correct about Lautenberg . I just wish he also included Menendez.

The Lautencorpse is the oldest member of the Senate. The old bastard is 88!

“I just wish he also included Menendez.”

His problems maybe congenital. His brain’s growth may have been arresrted along with his height.

I think Lautenberg’s problems may have been connected to defective upbringing and senility.

I voted for Lonegan also. Christie is the probably the best we can expect in New Jersey, given its demographics (invaded from New York City and Philadelphia)but on the national level, we sure can do a hell of a lot better.

Thank you for your response. I really can’t add anything more to it.

We are faced with a clear choice between a less than optimal candidate who is neveertheless a good God-Fearing Patriotic American and a creature of undetermined allegiance and clear Muslim connections whose entire “reign” has been dedciated to undermining the Free Market System and the American Constitution.

Its as simple as that.

By the way, Ronald Reagan made me a registered Republican. After what the GOP establishment did to Barry Goldwater, I didn’t want to have anything more to do with them.

Like you I voted for Bush I - TWICE, despite very heavy misgivings and despite having voted against him in the primary. Ditto with Bush II.

The Bushes, Doles, Whitmans, etc are clearly a POX on America that prevent Americans from making a CLEAR choice.

Their focus is more restricted to protrecting their own personal finances than national economic health or the County in general or even the Constitution or political philosophy.

Life rarely gives us a clear, easy choice. The 1980 election was one such rare event, and I treasure that fact and the sheer schaedenfreud of seeing all of the libs go nuts when Reagan won.

The choice we face here is simple - not easy, mind you, but simple. Either Obama will win or Romney will - there’s simply no other person that stands any chance. Therefore, the choice is between 4 more years of a person who clearly hates this country, who has set the tables for ruling via Executive Order and regulatory fiat, who has blatantly said that he’ll give the Russians a better deal on a treaty once the election is over, and who will be utterly unaccountable for his actions...vs. the second choice, a VERY far from ideal candidate with a LOT of flaws and horrible positions on issues that are near and dear to not only both of us, but to most on FR and roughly 50% of the population at large - but he’ll be accountable 4 years from now, and the media will actually do its job of being his watchdog (unlike Obama).

IOW, the choice is between big (and certain) Evil and little (and accountable) evil. Sometimes that is the regrettable choice that The Big Guy gives us. As I mentioned in my prior post, I used to be like you, to think in black and white terms, but I learned my lesson. I’d rather get 30% of what I want, and be able to pressure my Representative and Senators to stop the worst of what Romney might propose, than to get 0% of what I want and have no chance of my reps having any influence over the President. You, of course, are entitled to your own contrary view - but in my opinion, you are wrong. We will probably have to agree to disagree.
