Skip to comments.Chris Christie: Romney's 'Gifts' Comments 'Divisive'
Posted on 11/16/2012 12:32:51 PM PST by Arthurio
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Friday added his name to a growing list of Republicans who are rebuking Mitt Romney over his gifts comments.
You can't expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive, said Christie on MSNBCs Morning Joe when asked if he agreed with fellow Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, who was one of the first to criticize the former GOP nominee over the comments.
In a conference call with donors Wednesday, Romney said that minorities and young people voted for Obama because he offered them gifts.
Said Christie: You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people. And play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors. And I always think this is scapegoating after elections. When you lose, you lost."

Aww... they had a spat because Bammy didn’t bailout Twinkies
He must have gotten some tips for O on how/when to throw people under the bus.
Mostly, the phrase is imprecise.
He should have referred to it as:
How about THIS for “divisive”...
Obama and the Democrats catered to a bunch of thieves that are too lazy to steal for themselves, so they have the govt do it for them.
Enough of this overstuffed traitorous POS!
Primary this fat ass traitor.
Stuff it, fat boy.
Yes Obama is the most polarizing “President” in my lifetime
And where’s your criticism of that, FatBoy?
Of course Obama can be a leader and be divisive, but Romney can’t be seen or heard precisely stating the truth that voters have voted for themselves those who will transfer the treasury to them.
Looks like I’ll be staying home when christie runs for re-election.
Chrissey and Karl sitting on a swing
K. I. S. S. I. N. G.
First comes love, then comes marriage
What does it take to get him to SHUT UP?
Hey fatso, what in the hell would you know about being a leader, you whiney, weepy fat POS.
So much wrong with this picture.
Democrats will be promising a free ATM machine in every home by 2016.
He’s still got Little Debbie’s.
Time for Kristie Kreme to go away.
Christie’s whole house is probably draped in black, mourning the loss of Hostess.
My bet is he liked the chocolate cupcakes with the creamy white filling the best.
(I liked those too when I was ten. I got over it.)
Christie IS the bus.
Holy crap! Really Chris? You don't see Obama as divisive?
Why don't these two just get frakkin' married!
That fat f*** disgusts me. He needs to STFU.
Jindal attacks Romney via Hard Left “Politico.”
Christie attacks Romney via moderate Left “Morning Joe.”
Do these guys EVER talk to Conservative media?
Christie is a washed up whale. Him and Bobby can go to hell if they think they’re ever getting nominated for higher office.
Tell us, Chris. Was the president’s constant racial and gender politics “divisive”?
Your Islamopandering and denial of Obama’s socialist welfare bribery is beyond reproach. You, Bobby, and Colin Powell should be formally EJECTED from the party. Take Boehner with you. His palling around with Piglosi and TOTUS today was vomit-inducing.
An apple pie and a fork.
Morning Joe? People watch that?
I guess he has to go on any show that’ll take him since Oprah retired.
Wish we could weed out these RINO SOBs...
When I look at Chris Christie, I immediately think of “Fatass” from Shawshank Redemption.
Oh REALLY, Chris??? How about you tell this to Obozo, you fat POS!!!
I’d pay to watch a to-the-death cage match between Michael Moore and Chris Christie.
We expect a leader to be truthful.
” - - - You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive, said Christie - - - - “
Duh Chris, but that is the main political philosophy of your new BFF, Obama.
Great pic. There’s your GOPe in action and picking winners.
Time to tune two-ton out.
Truth hurts Christie.....
Not only was this jerk backstabbing Mitt at the worst time, he looks like a servile submissive punk in the process.
I’m glad to see Rosie O’Donald is helping the president with the the Sandy “thingie”!
By the way will they be appearing on “Dancing with the Stars”?
if Christie somehow became the GOP nominee for president, then I will seat out that election. I don’t vote for Rats. I held my nose voting for McPain, Romney, but I will not vote for this Rat.
Too late Christie...we’re already divided.....irrevocably. It’s all done but the obituary.
Both of these RINOs need to just shut up and go away.
Christie’s finished electorally because of his actions. And Romney and his incompetent staff of RINOs should never run a conservative campaign again.
We need to stop shooting at people more or less on our side. Our very future is under direct attack from the Administration, and that must be the subject for concentrated effort & attention.
See Obama Or America.
These weak-kneed people are ignoring the facts. Call it whatever you want, but this is exactly what happened.
In the calendar year, the executive branch acted on the following:
1 - They created a new mandate for ‘free’ contraception for women. It is something never before mandated. It is not free because rates will go up because of this mandate. It infringed on religious organizations. When opponents complained about those facts, the #waronwomen narrative was born. This was all by design.
2 - A day after North Carolina voted down a marriage amendment, Obama changed his previous position on gay marriage. His statement changed nothing, because it is not a federal issue, but it motivated both gay voters and other left-leaning voters who were previously disillusioned with this president. It also raised hollywood cash.
3 - Despite doing NOTHING on immigration reform when there was a Democratic majority, Obama implemented a version of the Dream Act without congressional input. When people complained, they were viciously attacked as anti-hispanic or anti-immigrant. This was used as a club to bash Romney and the GOP all year.
4 - Student loans and health care for younger voters....free stuff.
Each group WAS pandered to during this election cycle and each of these groups turned out in big numbers in November. What’s the argument here?
Christie should try to be divisive when it comes to meals.
As divisive as lets say...............Romney killed somebody?
Joe Scarborough was following Christie around at the RNC convention like a little fan girl. Look for him to be pushing Christie as the GOP pick for the next 4 years.
The phenomenon unfolding is that evil is now called “good” and visa versa. That this has worked and is working is so astounding that I have concluded that something is at work, here, that is greater than politics. This may be the onset of the last battle, truly the one between good and evil. What else can be such a destroyer except God allows it.
Not that Republicans have the corner on truth and goodness, but have thrown it away with both hands on many occasions.
There are no sound minds left who haven’t already been bound and marginalized, cast out and ridiculed and banished from the town square.
