Gov. Chris Christie today urged the children of immigrants who came to this country illegally to "make the most of the opportunity" to pay in-state tuition at New Jersey’s colleges and universities under the Dream Act.

This fat ass Lou Costello look-a-like f’ing RINO is the governor of my state. If this is our candidate for 2016 we’ve lost already. And if we lose 2016 it’s over for the country and the Republican Party.

Krispy is behind the times. They want grants now. Loans are passé.

Rick Perry could not get away with signing the 2001 Dream Act. Most people answering these polls only know him as a handsome fat guy.

So illegals get lower tuition than Americans. When is someone going to sue these b@st@rds. Crispy Cream better not be the GOP candidate.

This is why the Obama, Hillary, the MSM, the Dems, and the GOP (a subsidiary of the DNC now) have decided to make him the GOP candidate. He should lose to Hillary, but if he accidentally wins we still get a Dem president.

With moves like this Christie should give Hillary a tough race in the Democrat Primary.

Sorry, but this fellow has grandiose beliefs that are so far left of the base that he pretends to support that it is just becoming as bit on the stupid side - you know, get all of the ignorant to weigh in and let the rest take care of themselves. This man is an example of just what we should be on the watch for - false Republican - worse than a RINO!

***

Unfortunately, he probably will be. I’m firmly convinced that most of the Republican Party is in bed with the socialist liberals. They have no interest in running a true conservative, and they will do whatever it takes to ensure that Christie is the nominee. The party will run over any conservative who dares to challenge the chosen one. They did it in 2012 and they will do it again in 2016.

That depends on who you ask. His supporters think he's a conservative even though he did. But many of those same people will condemn Christie for doing the same thing. Selective outrage at its worst.

I never trusted that big tub of guts. He was showing his true colors back when he was U.S. Attorney and declared that illegals weren't really criminals. Apparently he fails to understand what the meaning of the word "illegal" is. I guess if somebody broke into his house, he'd give 'em room and board for free, right ?

Yes, just like Mike Huckabee when he was governor of Arkansas. I had a number of “discussions” with his office over the years and not one of them ever explained why illegals can break the law and citizens have to obey them.

I think it makes a difference with hindsight. Reagan signed the 1986 amnesty with no talk radio, no FAIR, NumbersUSA to educate the public on the issue or to burn the phone lines of congress.

Republicans had just won the Presidency with a hispanderer from Texas. I can understand moreso there was momentum for this misinformed pandering in the Texas GOP at the time then there is this decade at the national level.

It’s the worst of two worlds. It’s like knowing a train wreck is coming in two years and you can’t do anything about it.

No difference. La Raza Rick Perry has a history of being pro-ILLEGAL alien. The DREAM Act was just a small part of it.

Reagan's amnesty was a one time deal that failed. That wasn't predictable so he had no way of knowing. Perry had benefit of knowing but did it anyway because it was part of his pro-ILLEGAL agenda. There's a world of difference between the two men, their goals and their agendas.

It’s called pandering for dollars.

Carlos Medina, chairman of statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Martin Perez, of the Latino Leadership Alliance, were also speakers. Both men endorsed Christie’s re-election bid, and Christie nominated Perez to serve on Rutgers’ board of governors.

So Christie discriminates against Americans in favor of illegal aliens?

That’s treason.

RE: “Reagan's amnesty was a one time deal that failed. That wasn't predictable.”

The political outcome sure was predictable.

There are Hispanic polls that go all the way back to Nixon-Kennedy in 1960.

No Republican presidential candidate has ever received more than 40% of the Hispanic vote.

Reagan got 35% in 1980 and 37% in 1984.

After the Reagan Amnesty passed in 1986, GHWBush ran in 1988 and got 30% of the Hispanic vote!

...but probably the reason the GOPe will select him. No wonder, in Gallup's new pole today "Independents" are at an all time high and Republicans are at an all time low. They just refuse to learn...and power is more important to the GOPe than what is good and right for the country.

He should have invited R. Perry up for the festivities. You’d be surprised how much bunk the Republican primary voters always endure, even embrace.

Yeh, this is definitely the guy we want on the ticket in 2016. Not in a million years will that fat RINO win a primary down South.
