Skip to comments.Sen. Hatch touts Christie-Martinez ticket in 2016
Posted on 11/08/2013 10:16:12 AM PST by CedarDave
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez would make a great 2016 Republican presidential ticket, longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, told reporters Wednesday.
The endorsement of Martinez as a vice presidential nominee with Christie came after Martinez joined the New Jersey governor this week to help him campaign into the homestretch of his successful gubernatorial re-election bid.
Lets face it: Susana Martinez has a lot of qualities that would help a lot of people to understand that the Republican Party is a broad base party, Hatch said.

And as for Hatch, the senile old RINO should retire back in Utah, the sooner the better. I used to be a fan of his, but after his statement yesterday in a Fox interview ("Cuccinelli would have won if a couple of Senators had not shut down the government.") he's nothing more than an embarrassment or worse a detriment to the people of Utah who elected him.

For some reason, the expression “lead balloon” comes into my head.
first get rid of Hatch. what a POS.
These people are pathetically predictable
Oh..don’t take my comment as an endorsement of Christie...no way, no how.
Senator Hatch, like his fellow Mormon from Nevada, is a candidate for a booby hatch.
Hatch is delusional, as always. The brain isn’t working at all well.
Two thumbs down.
. . . which is why we need someone like Ted Cruz who understands from the get-go that the enemedia will never be his friend and is willing to fight them to the finish line.
Sorry, but if Christie is the head of the ticket, I wouldn’t vote for him, even if he picked ME to be his VP.
I might vote for a Martinez / Christie ticket, but only after speaking to her Doctor to make sure she is in absolutely perfect health.
Now, you put up a Cruz / Martinez ticket, and I’ll give them money, and go out and campaign for them.
So Hatch must not like Governor Martinez. If he did, he wouldn’t be trying to tie her to Christie’s beached ship.
“Lets face it: Susana Martinez has a lot of qualities that would help a lot of people to understand that the Republican Party is a broad base party”
and what would those be, Orrin? breasts and a latino name?
Hatch needs to be primaried himself.
If Hatch endorses someone it’s a pretty sure bet that someone isn’t worth a lb. of pig crap.
There was an article about a new TV sitcom series dealing with a group of dysfunctional politicians. The original script had all of them as Democrats. The series was taken on by one of the big networks and Gary Trudeau (yes, the same one who writes that incredibly offensive cartoon strip) is the writer.
Guess what? The “Democrat” politicians turned into Republicans in his script because he thought it would be “funnier.” In other words, another way of giving a bad image to the GOP ... in a show originally written about Democrats.
Yes indeed. I hadn't seen the below article and thread before I did a keyword search on "Orrin Hatch":
Tuesday, 79-year old Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), now serving his seventh term in the Senate, signaled that he and other members of the Republican establishment are likely to encourage a primary challenge to first term Senator Mike Lee (R-UT).
Hatch told the Deseret News and KSL NewsRadio that "[i]t's time now... for Lee and other tea party Republicans to be 'rehabilitated' for refusing to pass a budget bill needed to keep the government operating unless money for the act better known as Obamacare was removed."
You sorry ass is gone orin!
My family has been in Utah for 168 years and I will be damned if I can understand why people vote for this turkey.
Crispy will get Romney’d and Martinez will get Palin’d. I don’t need to see a rerun of that movie.

And in the final result, NJ will vote Rat and NM will vote Rat.
In 2012, Ryan didn’t pull in WI and Romney didn’t pull in NH, NV, MA, MI or PA like we were told was going to happen.
Is Martinez a Natural Born Citizen?
Didn’t Geraldine Ferraro point out Obama’s “qualities” and get slammed for it as racist?
Does this mean I get to call Hatch a racist?
I simply don’t understand why Mark Levin supported Hatch’s reelection. Even when Mark explained it (Hatch was apparently a solid conservative at one time), it still didn’t make sense.
How many times do we have to go through this process? How many times do we have to reelect senators who play conservative at election time but go squishy on us for six long years afterwards? When do we learn?
BTW, did you see the articles where Senator Graham is now fighting for a ban on late term abortions? Why, the man is a genuine, conservative stalwart!!! LOL! Sadly, I think he’s going to be very, very hard to beat, because the squishes have this process (of running to the right at election time) down pat.
Maybe for thee but not for me.
Token female. Check.
Token Hispanic. Check.
RINO checklist complete - let's nominate her!
The gibsmedats are NOT going to be impressed. Better to run plain-spoken candidates who loudly advocate defunding of the professional indolent - that might get many absentee conservatives interested in voting, again.
Of New Mexico, no. Of Texas and the US, yes. The libs tried to use her being Texas born and raised in El Paso against her during her 2010 campaign (of course overlooked was the hypocrisy when then Governor Richardson was "Hispanic" because his mother was Mexican and he was born in Pasadena, CA and raised in Mexico City and Massachusetts). Both of her parents were US citizens by birth in El Paso.
This is ‘McCain/Palin’ only fatter. I want to see Palin/Cruz! The pubs gotta have a female presidential candidate in order to COMBAT HILLARY’S ‘WAR ON WOMEN’ ONSLAUGHT THAT’S COMING!
Ilike the bottom half of it, but not Fatso.
If nominated in 2016, Chris Christie will be another:
a) Bob Dole
b) John McCain
c) Mitt Romney
D) All of the above
STFU and resign Booby Hatch.
D) Sum of the above
...comes closer to the reality (something like 200 + 220 + 180 = 600)
I think both of them are just great, right where they're at.
We need to clean house with the Marxists in Washington. I love the fight in Ted Cruz. He may be better suited for Senate Majority leader.
I think Scott Walker with proven administrative experience would be a good choice.
I'd love it if Texas and Utah could come up with strong Cruz and Lee type candidates to challenge old-school/dim lite/GOPelitists Hatch and Cornyn.
That's very true.
thanks, I had read, just the other day, that her parents were immigrants and I was not aware if they were/became citizens, before she was born.
The press is hoping Christy gets nominated precisely so they use this stuff against him.
