Chris Christie: I'm a Conservative, Not a Moderate [Laugh O' Day!]
weekly standard ^ | 11/5/13 | MICHAEL WARREN

Posted on 11/05/2013 3:36:22 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a Republican, is on his way to winning big in his bid for reelection Tuesday, and there's already talk he may be on his way to running for president in three years. Speaking to CNN's Jake Tapper, Christie argued he's not a moderate as he's sometimes portrayed.

"I'm a conservative," Christie told Tapper. "I've governed as a conservative in this state, and I think that's led to some people disagreeing with me in our state, because it's generally a left-of-center, blue state."

"I've governed as a conservative in this state..."

There's the key. In Joisey, he is probably about as conservative as they come.

I think the biggest question is will he be running for POTUS on the R ticket or VP on the D ticket? I could easily see Hillary having him and the media have an orgasm over the “new bipartisanship”.

NJ Fatboy would be in his mid 60s in 2024 and primed for POTUS.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg


...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

http://www.ontheissues.org/governor/chris_christie_abortion.htm Christie claims to have been pro-life since hearing his daughter’s prenatal heartbeat in 1996, two years after his last donation to Planned Parenthood.

http://www.ontheissues.org/Governor/Chris_Christie_Gun_Control.htm Supports gun restrictions: “The issue which has energized me to get into this race (NJ Gov.) is the recent attempt by certain Republican legislators to repeal NJ’s ban on assault weapons.”

http://www.ontheissues.org/Governor/Chris_Christie_Immigration.htm Supports lower tuition for illegals from other countries than for legal residents from other states (and lies doing it): “I’ve never been opposed to tuition equality.”

Christie is not on the far left fringe, where Obama is, but he is in no way a conservative. He is, for me, unacceptably liberal, and he will not get my vote just as Romney did not get my vote.

Don’t forget he slandered Cruz and the Tea Party. Getting elected governor in NJ proves he’s not conservative.

Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt’s Generals:

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

Perhaps Christie, after getting crushed in the GOP Primary, will pull a sweetie move like mr. sweetness in Florida, and run as a Democrat.

Here's the passage at issue:
In the 1980s, the war caucus in Congress armed bin Laden and the mujaheddin in their fight with the Soviet Union. In fact, it was the official position of the State Department to support radical jihad against the Soviets. We all know how well that worked out.
Let's leave aside for now the insulting, utterly asinine, sickening, inexcusable use of the phrase "war caucus" to describe those (including Reagan!) who supported the mujaheddin against the Soviets. That word choice alone is almost entirely disqualifying for its purveyor to ever be president.

Instead, let's just look at a little history here -- because the ignorance evident in this paragraph is truly astonishing. One would be hard pressed to find even a single historian, whether right, left, or center, who would argue anything other than that the Soviet failure in Afghanistan was not just a huge factor, but probably an essential one, in the Soviets' ultimate loss of the Cold War.

I hope that his possible run for the presidency is as much of a joke as it seems, but I fear that it is not. Stranger things have happened.

Google around. See what liberals think of him.

FWIW:

The youngest daughter of state Sen. Barbara Buono, Christie's opponent in the November election, wrote a scathing letter today to Buono supporters on the governor's opposition to same-sex marriage. In it, Tessa Bitterman, a 22-year-old San Francisco resident following her mother's footsteps to law school, says she is a "gay American" and Christie is a "giant roadblock to New Jersey achieving equality for all."

Fatism? And she's hardly one to talk. She could even be his own kid:

For New Jersey, its a win for Republicans, for America it would b a loss. But ya know I say that and someone told me he is pro-life and is against gay- marriage? Is that true? I find that shocking if that is true and he still got elected in N.J. My friend believes conservatives might b pleasantly surprised if he were to win the Presidency. He thinks he is at times letting some isues go to fool some libs for the bigger prize. Anyway, just an idea I heard.

LOL...he protets his cajones by offering cheap tuition to illegals and hides them from the local Newark and Jersey City Jihadists, who he loves.

He did do a number on Obama’s though...double kneepad style.
