Christie Fights Criticism He Is Too Moderate
The Wall Street Journal ^ | November 10-11, 2013 | Josh Mitchell

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 Obama’s health-care law.

Yep.

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.”

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.

Do the research, and you'll find that Christie has absolutely nothing to do with any "skyrocketing" property taxes in New Jersey. If you have a problem with your property taxes, take that up with your local and municipal government officials and leave the state government out of it.

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.

If you have to tell people that know you you’re not a moderate then you are a moderate.

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.

Chris Christie?

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...
...again.

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?

What Mitt Romney learned about Chris Christie in 2012 and why it matters for 2016

The press is hoping Christy gets nominated precisely so they use this stuff against him.
