You Know Who Shut Down Roads, Parks and Memorials for Political Reasons
http://www.frontpagemag.com ^ | January 9, 2014 | Daniel Greenfield

It’s the skinny half of this duo.

Nice of the media to hold Christie accountable for causing traffic problems, but the guy in a clinch with him shut down the road to Mount Rushmore, barricaded multiple memorials, forcibly shut down private parks and even private restaurants at gunpoint.

What Obama did during the governemnt shutdown was just as bad, if not worse.

they actually had to SPEND MORE MONEY to close ‘open air’ parks than it would have cost just to leave them open.

And the guards and people who do the tourist tours of the white house were still workign and getting paid, they just didnt have anything to do when Obama cut off the White House Tours out of SPITE.

wcvb in boston had a teaser of the Christie story. I can’t think of another time where the local news stations did a story on the governor of another state.
did he really think his wet kiss to Obama was going to change the msm’s coverage of him?

Obama's got the "slims"...and that comes from sticking yur peepee where it don't belong.

Pardon my incorrect Engrish...but that community doesn't care a whit about propriety. Engrish or pee-kin-eese.

No, Obama didn't shut down national parks and memorials for political reasons - he shut them down to hurt people.

That's what the vindictive smarmy POS does. That's his political history. He views "winning" in politics by hurting "the people" so they clamor for the Government to step up and fix things.

That was Obama's intent in shutting down national parks and memorials - he wanted people to scream bloody murder at the Government to open things up, making the Government the "fixer" of all things.

Christie or his staff by proxy did the exact same thing.

Both of these scumball sons a bitches are exactly alike.

All politicians.

Don’t give us a raise in taxes, we cut your fire and police.

Don’t give us a raise in taxes we close your parks and threaten your SSI.

But Christie, he don’t know nuthin’ bout this. Noooooo...

He was so convincing, so presidential that Sean Hannity believed him.

Sean Hannity is off from now on. I can learn nothing from him, because he’s an ass kissing moron.

I’m not playing this damn game any more. These parasites need to go, and anyone standing for or enabling these parasites also have to go.

Why does anything come out the last nearly 6 years other than to divert attention away from what a failed leader Obama is? So your suspicions/theory is just as good as anything else and likely to be 100% true.

Obama/Soetoro`s list is longer and VERY serious yet, nothing but cricket sounds from the neo-marxist media:

1. Using the IRS as a political weapon.

2. Providing de facto amnesty to illegal immigrants

3. Executions of American citizens via drones

4. Delayed the provision in ObamaCare to cap out-of-pocket health care costs, picking and choosing parts of the law to enforce, which is to exceed its authority.

5. Un-Constitutional recess appointments.

6. Unilaterally decided to delay the employer mandate provision of ObamaCare for a year.

7. NSA spying on all Americans.

There are about 50 more but when you`re up against this type of never before seen in human history of propaganda machine aka dominant media there`s zero chance obama/soetoro gets impeached.

Yeah, the coincidence is just too much. Seriously, I hadn't heard a thing about this Christy scandal till about 48 hours ago. Now maybe I missed it, but I doubt it. As soon as Gates book comes out, BOOM we get a "scandal" involving a Republican.

God help me, but I'm so tired of this manipulation of public opinion.

little barry bastard boy merely ordered his staff to make the shut down painful. The scary part is, there are so many obedient worshipful minions on the government teet that these specific acts were done to serve him, serve his wishes. Just imagine how they will punish Americans when the collapse arrives and he blames it on Christians and Republicants! Evil is strutting across America ... and sometimes it is exogenously obese.

This needs to get spread around, and I'm going to do my part by posting the following to my facebook. I'd recommend that every Freeper do it as well, and maybe someone with some ping list can help get that going.

It'd also be great to have recommendation on the best way to post this to Facebook or elsewhere. For my part, I'm doing it by using the following text along with the list to the pic below:

You know who shut down the most roads for political reasons?

Guess again, it would be the skinny half of this duo, who shut down the road to Mount Rushmore, barricaded multiple memorials, and even forcibly shut down private parks just to score political points against the GOP during the government shut down.

So while it's nice to see the media doing their job this week by holding Christie and his administration accountable, let's take a moment to remind them that they should be doing this in all cases!

What's wrong here....is both parties don't give a rat's ass about "The People".

It's only about them. And what advantage they can have over each other...

And Damn the PEOPLE they supposedly "represent".

They lie and steal...and say that's political. Doesn't matter to them...it's not a lie to them....it's political!!!

None of them are to be trusted.
