Chris Christie: Romney's 'Gifts' Comments 'Divisive'
Yahoo ^

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 MSNBC’s 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."

‘gifts’ wasn’t a strong enough word...
should have said ‘Graft’

Yup!! Plain and simple... it’s the truth.

There isn’t a Conservative on earth who could do anything remotely like this and get away with it.

I'm through with Christie. Whatever promise I saw in him as a possible future nominee has dissolved with his gratuitous post-Sandy shenanigans.

Christie should have kept a low profile. Any hopes he had of being a candidate for POTUS on the GOP-E ticket in 2016 are gone - just as gone as the American economy, thanks to his buddy zero.

Laurel and Hardy.

Romney DID make a mistake with those comments and clearly it was not the ONLY mistake he made in the past year or so.

HOWEVER, Christie’s crictizisms of him, unlike the constructive comments made by other GOP politicians was CLEARLY as self-srving as that stab-in-the-back photo op with Obozo.

Its important for us to learn from our mistakes and recognize that they WERE mistakes and not defects in our basic political philosophy. The Democrats want us to believe the LATTER, even though we KNOW it is the former.

I am 3,000 miles away from this fat slob. but I will most certainly donate to whomever runs against him... and that would include a looney democrat.

Chris Christie is a disgusting RINO.

Christie knows what I know now.
The 47% will become the 56%!
Depending more and more on Gov handouts he has to stay in the loop and pacify the welfare nuts as he is up for re-election in 2 years.
By expanding his voter base to liberal progressives it does not matter if he loses the conservative vote because because 56% beats 44%.
If he can win re-election in 2. HE can then run for pres with the Liberal vote hopefully in his pocket.
Oh I guess that means yea we conservatives were thrown under the bus!

Even though I liked the way he kicked butt and took no stuff, there was something that made me skeptical about Christie (couldn’t figure out why I didn’t trust him like Ann Coulter said I should).

Well, over the last few weeks, he’s been revealing why he deserves no trust from any of us — over and over again.

Say Ann, how do you like your golden boy now?

Also wanted to add that, truth be told, I’ve heard much more so-called divisive talk come from Christie’s lips. Never once heard him come close to “can’t we all just get along” as he is now doing.

Glad he’s exposed himself as wishy-washy and squishy before anyone else (no thanks Ann!) got the not-so-bright idea he’s a great candidate for POTUS.

Wow! So now telling the truth is “divisive”.

No wonder the GOP is the stupid, and now dead, party.

Really Chris? You don't see Obama as divisive?

Christie is turning out to be like Crist of FL. Both have found a new BFF -- Obama.

Christie is positioning himself, he thinks, for a run in 2016.

They didn’t run one this time. It was such a top down organization it was doomed to fail. Tells me a Romney presidency would have been just as bad.

Look at the Congressional representation in OH, PA, WI, etc. Overwhelmingly GOP.

Where was the ground game?

If Christie can’t use his toughlove act (which is wearing thin down here in the south) in a campaign for president, then I don’t want him as my candidate.

I will vote for Gary Johnson or even Rosanne Barr for that matter if this guy is the GOP Nominee.

They were also not true. Romney needs to stop talking. Christie was right. Romney lost because more people voted for President Obama than voted for him. And he is a sore loser. He lost with no grace or dignity. Please make him shut up.

Either that or he has sold out to Obama and has been promised a gravy position in the New World Order. May G-d damn his soul either way. He is dead to me and I dare say anyone in NJ with any integrity.

What really bothered me was non-stop crowing about ground game and fixed polls - it’s like his campaign team was in a completely different world.

Don’t see how the establishment can reinstall Preibus as chairman either. Where’s the leadership?

What to do, four years out, as the Republican political forces and Big Money are already arraying for the 2016 battle field to arrange the next cram down, while we still have our heads in the oven over this one.

Rubio, Jebbers Bush, Christie? Ambitions on steroids. Rubio, groomed by Jeb, can’t seem to even decide whether he is Protestant or Catholic, Jeb has never uttered even the possibility of returning to the simple enforcement of existing immigration law and orderly numbers of entries, and Christie is so naive as to enlist Muslim influence in NJ government without much explanation, nevermind he chose to govern in a state full of Marxists just as Romney chose to do.

Hysteria may drive me to the Libertarians. At least they are unruly, stubborn and sufficiently fed up to at least organize.
