Posted on 11/11/2013 4:13:51 AM PST by Biggirl
Newly re-elected New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stepped firmly into the national spotlight Sunday, appearing on multiple news programs to combat criticism from some Republicans he is too moderate for national office and to take a swipe at President Barack Obamas health-care law.

A moderate, backstabbing, traitorous, deceitful jerk.
Following the formula.
Run to the right to get elected, then show your true colors as a lefty.
Tubby can fight criticism all he wants to. The truth is that under his governorship New Jerseyites have watched their property taxes skyrocket. The average citizen has seen absolute NO reduction in any tax.
He is a wishy-washy moderate who does a great job of telling people off while on camera!
Chrissie was the first governor to opose Obamacare. Oh wait Chrissie was the worm that kissed Obama butt after hurricane Sandy. My bad.
I can see how Christy convinces the lefties in NJ, but it won't work nationally for 2016. However, it is a winning formula year-after-year for John McCain - lie to your constituents about your conservatism and return to your backstabbing ways after re-election. What I don't understand are the simpleton rubes John McCain continues to convince in AZ election after election.
Funny....we’ve never seen a photo of Ted Cruz nuzzling Obama. Or was Christie just doing that for cash? There’s a word for that, and it isn’t “conservative.”
Also he cries too much and he is a liberal.
Krispy Kreme’s ooze to the right has begun.
Fighting being a moderate burns calories I think.
Don't underestimate McCain's carefully cultivated "war hero" persona. A lot of retired veterans live here and too many fall for it, especially when he starts talking tough. They don't look too critically at his actual policy positions.
That's one area where Christie has actually done very well, in terms of putting responsibility directly on those who are truly responsible.
Judging by the size of him, the only thing he’s moderate in is self-control.
I wish that guy would just go away but I know he will rammed down the throats of republicans for 16.And he will be set up to lose. Anybody else see a pattern here?
If you have to tell people that know you you’re not a moderate then you are a moderate.
Hey, I know! He can tell people he’s “severely conservative”! Heh heh...
But, but, but. Senor mclame is a war hero. Didn’t you remember that? Oh, he also had some sort of cancer too which qualifies him for endless re-elections. He maybe should team up with mx. mark kelley-giffords and his wife for some pointers on how to be even more irrelevant. I appreciate your service john but it’s time to retire. As for christy, he’s shown his true colors and can NOT be trusted. GOP-e label.
Liberal spender of tax payer money who literally got fat from pigging out on his government expense account as a US Attorney.
Simply put, he is a pig from one of the most corrupt states ever, New Jersey.
its been funny watching the MSM twister game on Christie. Propping him up while rying to convince us conservatives that he REALLY IS conservative. They know what will happen if Christie wins the nomination....droves of conservative republicans will stay home...
He’s a fat focking Liberal.
Was he not a lobbyist and a lawyer?.
Ann Coulter to the rescue in 3...2...1...
The Wallace interview last night was actually quite good.
Moderate? He is so moderate he’s almost a Whig? He’s not even a Blue Dog Democrat. He’s Obama’s Best Friend and helped to put the nails in Mitt Romney’s coffin. The MSM wants him to be the Next GOP Pasty to lose to the next Obama Clone they offer up (I’m banking on a 3rd term Obama) Hillary? or some other Union Thug? They will pull a McCain on him—So cool, so moderate, everyone loves him—But once the fat man gets the nomination they will turn on him and slice and dice him any way they can. Can we not let the MSM pick our guys for a change?
The press is hoping Christy gets nominated precisely so they use this stuff against him.
