Public personna for his seething, hate-filled, lib-dem voters and constituents. He was typical lib-dem-marxist filth, pure and simple. Good riddance and rot in hell.
Tom Kean Jr?
A little history. The Lout was able to re-infect the Senate when the original RAT party candidate had to withdraw. Technically it was too late for the RATS to run a replacement but they whined like mad and the courupt RAT controlled NJ Supreme court allowed the Lout to run. The Repubs as usual, allowed the RATS to steal this sure win, and the Lout was a deciding vote for Obamacare.
I’m betting on Cory Booker. Obomba wants him because he’s black. And Kristie Kreme will do his bff’s bidding.
Can’t come soon enough for me.
Can Christie appoint himself?
That woman convicted of voter fraud last week voted multiple times for Obama as well as a relative who is in a coma.
Here we have an 89 year old.
We have no rules. None. There’s too young to serve but not too comatose. Not too old. Rangel. Not too corrupt.
A distinct possibility, since it will prevent the threat of Booker running against him for governor.
In 2020, Booker will battle Andy Cuomo for the Democratic Party nomination.
Yes that would be more succinct than what I wrote.
One down, 534 to go. Can we have some more divine intervention here?
Christie will appoint a republican, but for the same reasons he embraces Obama it will be someone “moderate” on all social issues. And the new senator will vote that way in hopes of getting reelected.
Goodbye and good riddance. You will not be missed.
OMG! This is one of those rare moments where I will always remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news about......wait.....ummmm......who are we talking about again? Fred Somebody?
Before he does that he’d better think about who actually votes in Republican primaries.
The more taxes and accounting laws, the more business needed ADP to handle payroll.
Of course, he could always do a reverse Specter and run as a Rat.
“One shouldnt speak ill of the dead but”
Why speak good of the dead when there was noting good in them? We would be better off if liberals like him were never born.
Useless Obamabot Goon!!! May he rest in peace wherev er he goes!!! Governor Christie, the world is watching for your appointment. It better be a man or woman of the right!!! End of story!!!
yes he is...the lone wolf as it were..The only one I can vote for without holding my nose.
You can bet that RINO Christie won’t appoint a conservative and there is better than even chance he won’t even appoint Republican.
He’s been inert for a long time. It’s just now that everyone’s agreed to call his condition death.
Sad news. He wastage last WWIi veteran in the senate
Christie appoints his replacement until the next election. Don't know if he has to get concurrence from the NJ legislature. If Christie gets to appoint all on his own, then his choice will display who Christie really is, for all the world to see.
If Christie appoints a Democrat, forget about his future aspirations in the Repub party.
There, fixed it.
He’ll probably appoint a dem. But he may appoint someone like Christie Todd Whitmann.
Oh, I agree. What I meant was that this forthcoming appointment is finally going to smoke him out, once and for all.

The return of Christie Whitman?
Eric Bolling just speculated Booker on Varney.
Christie is a big fat muslim loving, sodomite loving political climber.
I haven’t researched his little resume, but I wouldn’t doubt that he, like Booker, is vying for international banking’s blessing. Anyone in NYC metro area has easy access to them.
A distinct possibility, since it will prevent the threat of Booker running against him for governor."
The NJ primary election is tomorrow, and Cory Booker isn't on the ballot. Christie actually has a likely Democrat opponent, Barbara Buono. She's an ultra-lib and sacrificial lamb who is supposed to lose.
Christie gets to appoint a temporary replacement for Lautenberg but his replacement only serves until the next general election, which is November. Christie could appoint a Democrat, could appoint a Republican "elder statesman" like Tom Keane, or could appoint someone with name recognition who has a chance in the November election. Presuming that Cory Booker runs in November. Christi Whitman comes to mind but she has drawbacks including that she is pretty liberal by current Republican standards and that she helped cause the fiscal crisis that NJ is now in.
This throws everything up in the air, including the November state election. I have no idea what Christie will do.
Now.....let’s see what Christie is made of, folks. He claims everything he does is for the good of New Jersey. Let’s see if Governor Christie appoints someone for the good of the nation or......he worships at the traitor feet of of love partner, POTUS, Barack Hussein (Muslim Bortherhood Thug) Obama. I’m willing to bet, Christie goes to satisfy “criminal” Obama!!! Politics above the nation.....that’s Christie!!!
Question worth asking.
Given a choice between maintaining the current balance of the Senate or adding a (nominal) Republican, which direction will Friend of Barack choose?
Appointing a Republican would give the GOP a leg-up for the seat when re-election rolls around in 2014. Conceivably, Christie's pick could be critical to a turnover in the Senate.
Under the circumstances, does Christie dare go against his newest best friend?
Sorry,no sympathy.He was a Commie Rat and he can rot in hell for all I care.
Yep, Fineswine is the next oldest. Chuck Grassley is next by a few months.
He was, in very many ways, part of the problem, much like Ted Kennedy and Bobby Byrd.
Shoot him again just to be sure!
This has to be the first time we have no Senator over 80 for a long time.
The “ADA” (a filthy Communist organization that “rates” members of Congress) rated him,in 2011,at 90%...100% being a perfect Communist by their reckoning.Dirty Harry got a rating of 95% from them for that same year.I say let the worms gag on that piece of filth.
"The Tea Party Republicans in Washington claim theyre concerned about the budget balance, but its a disguise! Its not true! Its a lie! Thats not what they want. They want they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They dont deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But well give them to them anyway."
what is the over/under that Christie appoints a democrat?
But there's still no shortage of Commies.Governor Krispy Kreme,no doubt,will see to that.
The appointment is only until Nov. Then an election will be held to.fill the seat until.2014 when the seat is up for the regular rotation. Christie will do one of two things. He will appoint Booker because they are allies in areas like education and cracking down on the NJEA. Or he will appoint a potential Dem rival to Booker to create turmoil among the NJ.Dems. he will not appoint a Repub.IMHO
One of the most hateful bastards to ever hold public office.
