'I Care About Being Respected' : Chris Christie Visits Iowa
NBC News ^ | July 17, 2014 | Kelly O'Donnell and Doug Adams

Posted on 07/17/2014 7:50:31 PM PDT by Innovative

Making his first trip to Iowa in more than 940 days, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie declared, "I don't care about being loved. I care about being respected."

"I tell them what I think and then everyone else will get to decide. They don't go in there and say, "Are you conservative enough? Are you liberal enough? Are you moderate enough?" That's not what people say, " he said. "They say, "Do I trust him? Can I count on him to tell me the truth? Is he somebody who can be a competent steward of our country's future?""

No, I don't trust you, Christie. No, I can't count on you to tell us the truth. No, you would not be a competent steward of our country's future.

I don’t respect people who are obese and think they have a right to determine public health policy. Christie is The Biggest Loser.

I don’t care to hear that man spew his gas. Besides, NJ is in a mess right now. Does he want to make the rest of the USA like NJ? I sure hope not.

So many questions for Mister Christie.

For starters...

1. Define "Assault Weapon", fully and completely. (I can do this, you can, too.)

2. Please state in simple, clear, and unambiguous terms what is the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, and what it means to you (and what it doesn't mean, if applicable.) Please include any and all restrictions on lawful gun ownership and carry.

3. State, with no uncertain terms, your goals (including subordinate objectives") regarding concealed carry, semi-automatic firearms, the Castle Doctrine, and Stand-your-ground laws.

4. Do you now think that (as a "Boss" groupie) that Bruce Springsteen played you for a fool? Do you somehow still think that you are buddies?

I know I am not the first ... but dang, where is the freaking like button. I got to the end of CC’s quote...and a string of NO, NO, NFW jumped out of my mouth.

My hubby has his worries confirmed...I am indeed nuts. And the dog ain’t too happy with me either.

Cold day indeed before I would vote for CC for POTUS.

I don’t have respect for Christie or for IA caucus-goers and voters.

He cares about being respected yet he kissed the arse of an obvious enemy of the United States who right this second is doing the kind of damage to the United States Al-Qaeda could only dream about, which EVERYBODY KNEW HE WOULD DO, all except Chris Christie?

Hey Chris:

To this day there are victims of hurricane Sandy who haven’t seen a dime from the Feds in assistance. How long did they give Bush before they called him racist? 4 days? That photo is Obama plunging a knife in Christies back but he can’t feel it from all the fat.

Krispy Kreme New Joisey Governor has not
garnered any category of respect, in my book.

I do not accept the media push, as they did with that
miserable Romney fella, for this guy, either.
