Report: Christie Refused to Campaign for Cuccinelli
Breitbart ^ | 11/6/2013 | John Nolte

Posted on 11/06/2013 7:28:43 AM PST by Night Hides Not

Tuesday night and again Wednesday morning, NBC's Chuck Todd reported that New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie refused to campaign for Ken Cuccinelli, the Virginia Republican who narrowly lost his own governor's race to Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

"They begged Christie, and you can make an argument," Todd said on Morning Joe. "That to bring a Chris Christie to Northern Virginia might have helped. But Chris Christie is worried about his own brand."

IMHO, two items are clear:

1. Christie is all about Christie.

2. Christie has no coattails.

Sorry GOPe, Christie's not the man for 2016.

The Democrats will wind up choosing Christie for the GOPe, And he’ll get crushed like a bug, just like McCain and Romney.

I know this from those who work with him, they consider Christie a master politician but he is all about the word “me”.

Yup. Cuccinelli ain’t part of the kow-tow to the old guard type guy so he’s out. No support from them for “his type”.

1. Christie had his own campaign to run.

2. Who the hell wants that fat slob (that's the pot calling the kettle black in my case although krispy kreme is much, much fatter) slobbering all over Virginia anyhow?

Against the most token of opposition. If he sat around eating donuts all day, and did nothing, he'd still win.

I will not vote for Christie. I will not agitate on his behalf. He is dead to me. That can be said for a number of Republicans.

Right now, I could not see myself voting for anyone but Palin or Cruz.

So let me get this straight…..trying to put myself in the teeny tiny mind of the GOP e consultant:

Cooch was no good because he was NOT estab enough…yet, when he tried to reach out to the estabs…and have the rotund one come….the estabs could not make that happen.

Seem to me the ESTABS are just little panty wearing tantrum bois who can’t think straight…..

How many more times are we going to be betrayed by the Whigs before we strike out on our own? The argument that we must vote for the Whig candidate or else RATs get elected doesn’t hold anymore. THEY are actively trying to get RATs elected.

THEY have already decided who their candidate is; now it’s our turn.

I will never vote for Christie for President the same way I didn’t vote for John McCain. Christie (beside his liberal track record) and embracing of Obama did two things I didn’t like:

1. He should have put Lonegan’s vote on the SAME day as his re-election campaign (and supported him big-time!) when he would have had COATAILS!!

2. He should have campaigned on behalf of Ken. Cuccinelli!

I HATE HIM!

He’s a bastard, that’s for sure.

Unlike the Dems who are policy driven - they will do anything to make America a socialist state - even fall on their own swords, with this guy its all about personal power and ego.

As I said many times before, to view a parallel to this man’s career you have to go back to Ancient Rome and look at any member of the Triumvirates. THEY demonstrate what motivates this guy.

I’m not sorry Buono lost as she would have been a worse threat, and Christie is the best we can get in today demographic in New Jersey.

The failure of this guy to pull any other GOP candidates for the legislature along on his coat-tails bodes poorly for the future for New Jersey. If he were really concerned with making a difference in the state he would have campaigned for the other GOP candidates statewide as they could have helped forward his agenda. But as that is not his objective, he decided to hang them out to dry as he hung out Lonegan and Cuchinelli.

Its all about Christie and I pray this bastard never gets nominated in 2016, but you can be VERY sure that THAT is what he will be aiming at throughout his next term and NOT what is best for the citizens of New Jersey.

Christie lost my support for national office when he got kissy-faced with 0bama just a few weeks before the 2012 election. He obviously cares about nothing but his career.

Now that he has helped thow a true conservative under the bus he can count on me actively working against him if he runs for national office.

Pretty obvious. Once he got passed over for VP, he started running for re-election. Why the storm was a god-send for him, why he got so palsy with the string-bean.

Was Ted Cruz campaigning for Cuccinelli in VA?

By all accounts I've read, Cuccinelli avoided Cruz in the aftermath of the temporary lapse in funding of 17% of the federal government. Ted was apparently too toxic for the Cooch.

Cooch should've brought him back last week, would have been excellent for shoring up the base. Just think of all the free advertising he would've had.

IMHO, these candidates need advisors who are Tea Partiers...we know who the base is of the Republican party, and how to fire them up.

You’re a fool if you don’t want to learn the lesson of history….but to your point, THIS ARTICLE that YOU commented on is ABOUT YESTERDAY…..thus, your point is off point.

The article was about Virgnia, not you. The article was about Christie’s impact on the Va Gov race, not about YOUR future Prez vote. Just sayin….

Christie is obviously angling for a Presidential run in 2016. This article shows me, from what he did yesterday, why I should not support him.

You are free to draw whatever conclusions you wish. Enjoy your day.

If Christie is elected President it will be because Democrats voted for him because no self respecting conservative Republican will. It looks like the MSM has already selected the Republican candidate as they did the last three elections. This time though I will not hold my nose and vote for them. It’s either Cruz and/or Palin or my wife and I will sit out the election. I don’t think we will be alone and there is no way a Republican, even a RINO, can win without their base turning out.

Christie’s goals, looking forward, are to minimize the TEA Party influence in the Republican Party, triangulate Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, and move the Party toward the center under the guise of inclusiveness.

Christie sealed his victory last year in the aftermath of Sandy. He embraced obama, snubbed Romney and then attacked Boehner for not pumping trillions into NJ overnight. That’s what passes for statesmanship in NJ.

I can think of no situation where I would vote for this a-hole Christie. He is the GOP's Obama, a narcissistic know-it-all who hates conservatives. It would simply be 4-to-8 more years of a president flipping the bird to conservatives/the Tea Party. No thank you.

Any chance of Conservatives holding their nose and voting for the RINO in 2016 is now gone. Christie will be the Republican nominee in 2016 unless the Tea Party kicks butt in 2014.

And with his move not to support Cuccinelli, Christie lost the Republican base which means he cannot win in 2016.

As my kid would say, Doneskies!

The only person Christie will be campaigning for is Hillary Clinton. All the Dems need to do is to make sure Christie is the GOP nominee, just like they did with McCain and Romney in 2008 & 2012. At that point, the race will be over.

And of course the GOP will do their part by holding there earliest primaries in Democrat states like New Hampshire and Iowa so that Democrats can get the first shot at choosing the GOP candidate.
