Skip to comments.How Chris Christie Can Save His Career
Posted on 01/09/2014 3:46:04 PM PST by Biggirl
Since 1992, when Bill Clinton moderated the Democratic Party's image by criticizing a hip-hop artist for her racially incendiary comments, politicians have searched for their "Sister Souljah moment" when a candidate takes what appears to be a brave stand against extremes in their party.
In 2000, George W. Bush caricaturized conservative jurist Robert Bork in an attempt to appear more compassionate than the GOP brand. That same year, Republican presidential candidate John McCain demonized the far right's "agents of intolerance." Eight years later, Sen. Barack Obama distanced himself from his own pastor, calling Jeremiah Wright's racially charged comments "a bunch of rants that aren't grounded in the truth."

Become a democrat.
That Rino is finished.
Why haven’t all the Rino’s come to his defense?
Where are all the Rino’s?
To be HONEST, you can stick a fork in, he is cooked.
I was thinking that too.
Remember when being a politician wasn’t a career?
Barely, but I do.
How he can save his career?? Easy - Wait 6 months. If the MSM will cover for you (and they will for Christie right up until he gets the nomination) then there is nothing that is career ending in politics today. Marion Barry - Smoke Crack - Go to prison - Get elected mayor again. Eliot Spitzer - Visit Whores - Resign - Get High profile and high paying cable news gig. Timothy Geitner - Don’t pay your taxes - Get name Treasury Secretary. The media are tools and the electorate are fools - Ted Kennedy could kill Mary Jo and still be President if he were born one generation later.
His best chance is to keep his butt in New Jersey!
Fat boi is a pathetic liar.
He could also start talking about how great obamacare is.. or has he done that already..?
Bingo! You nailed it!
Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes: Where Are All My Friends?
What nomination? Christie is DONE.
That answers my question. Nothing quite like Rino’s on the Run.
It depends on whether Hillary wants to run against him. If she does, then after a brief time in the wilderness, the Democrats will sound the all clear to the media and he’ll be resurrected. If she wants to run against Jeb, then he’ll soon be relegated to the ash bin of political history as a one-hit-wonder GOPe also ran.
Hell. I already thought that he was one of “them”.
I listened to the 107 minute press conference. He is an excellent liar, in a profession known for its liars. I doubt Obama or Bill Clinton could have done as well.
As for his future plans, unless there is an electronic trail that leads straight to his desk, I don't see this ending it. I doubt he sends text messages.
His fingers would be too fat.
I still can’t figure out how closing the GW bridge is payback for a Mayor who wronged the Governor. Anywhere in Virginia, road problems /lane shutdowns/heavy traffic always results in finger pointing towards Richmond - e.g. - the State government and not local officials. Also, isn’t the bridge a part of the major interstate system to New York? Was the Mayor personally on the bridge when this occurred and had to sit in traffic? I am totally out of the loop on this.
I really don’t understand it either, but now the NYT and MSM have decided that Christie will be the GOP presidential candidate and it’s their mission to destroy him. What will the GOP do? Run away, run away! To say that the collective GOP leadership amounts to cowardice is a gross insult to cowards everywhere.
lemme guess, gay marriage, global warming, windmills?
Chinese light bulbs?
I KNEW IT !!!
Why is this liberal hack “reporter” trying to help Fatboy save his career? Hmmmmmmm . . .
Why would we want to save it. He was the RINO’s big hope in 2016. Kind of clears the field out for a serious candidate.
To good news is that Christie is toast....
The bad news is, that clears the way for Jeb.
“To good news is that Christie is toast....

Look for a canidiate with TP leanings and the movement itself to take to GOP.
You got it.
Neither Hillary or Christie are going to run.
GWB is owned by PANYNJ, who’s administrators are appointed by the Governors of NY and NJ. This involved an administrator that was appointed by Christie.
