Posted on 09/23/2011 2:56:24 PM PDT by Retired Greyhound
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is reconsidering his decision not to enter the 2012 presidential race and he says he will let top Republican donors know within days about his plans, Newsmax has learned. During the past few weeks, several leading Republican donors and fundraisers have been urging the popular Republican governor to reconsider his decision not to run and to enter the GOP primary. These Christie supporters note that significant GOP support has remained on the sidelines of the primary fight. Many leading fundraisers have yet to commit to any current primary contender, including frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires.

So you are taking the same vile and foul language that liberals use against Palin but using it against another poster on this forum who said nothing foul about Palin.
The language directed towards Bristol was to ask if her bull-riding was the same sexual position she used with her boyfriend / lover; to call her mother a whore to her face; and the other language towards Palin involved the violent sexual fantasies of a convicted rapist involving intercourse with a professional athlete so forceful that it would derange her digestive organs.
I was complaining about the "in your FACE" nature of the other poster's writings: not expressing a wish that anything vile would *HAPPEN* to her.
Nice try, though.
Oh, please. I know all about you and all about the mods. Half of them are posters for Palin. As for you. Get lost. You can’t debate and you can’t dance, and we’ve all been exposed to what you dream about. Just take it somewhere else. Get lost.
And what is this "noob" thing? Does it mean that I am new here? Is there a rule for new people where they are not allowed to confront a poster who is posting a vile language against another poster? I am supposed to shut up because I am new? How about cower in fear or hide under my bed? And yes I support Rick Perry. We either have Perry or Romney as the nominee and I am supporting for Perry.
I've a better idea.
Why don't YOU start posting substantive posts, like I suggested?
In the meantime, if you prefer the company of other Perry fans, and you are not just a Perry operative trying to shill for him or disrupt a non-Perry-worshipping-site, try posting over at Ace of Spades or RedState. RedState in particular more or less held a purge of strong Palin fans around the beginning of 2011.
Maybe Alaska? I hope!
What is with Ann Coulter wanting him in the race?
I understand but the American people will not get control of the money bags....even with a change of polticians...they simply wait, stall and secure their share til it’s their turn to issue who gets it.
Gotta agree with that. Look what everyone was saying about Bachmann and her migraines. Someone as morbidly obese as Christie could stroke out at any moment, not to mention blood pressure issues, stamina on the election trail, suitability for the stresses of the office, reputation with foreign leaders, etc. Way too many negatives on health alone before we even get to the political leanings.
One is describing someone's posting history in, ahem, colorful, terms.
If you check my posting history I often accuse people of masturbating when they are being really bombastic without substance, or posting often-refuted talking points over and Over and OVER again.
The other poster fits that description to a "T".
The other cases are openly talking in public to a 20-year-old-girl FACE TO FACE to discuss her past sexual history in a LITERAL sense, calling her mother a whore to her face, and a convicted rapist talking about sexual fantasies of a public figure being subjected to forceful and debilitating intercourse.
As a Perry troll, you of course can't tell the difference, even after it's been explained to you.
Yes, "n00b" means "n00bie" (newbie).
N00bs can post whatever they want, to whomever they want, whenever they want, but if you are new, you're likely to not know past history behind things, or inside jokes, etc.
There have been campaigns to get rid of people organizing en masse for RINO candidates before (e.g. Guiliani and the infamous "bug-zapper" thread). There have been warnings to some of the more profligate pro-Perry posters that they would be well advised to tone it down.
And yes, you missed a pro-Palin poster with a 1998 sign-up date getting the zot about two weeks ago: they were spamming a Perry thread with continuous and repeated one-line insults without substantiation or invitation to any higher level discussion.
Read the totality of my posts on this thread: I invited the other poster to back up their positions with facts, and also gave the name names of two other openly pro-Perry sites in case they felt their pro-Perry posts weren't being properly welcomed here.
Note, by the way, that this other poster *PING*ed the mods and then posted to me (#303) that "they know all about the mods, half of them are pro-Palin posters."
Check up the other poster's history going back a few weeks, and you'll see that they usually have hit-and-run posts amounting to "Perry will win. Perry must win. Nobody has any chance. [Insert anti-Palin talking point of the day/week here.]" etc. etc.
If you want to support Perry, great, but advocate for him on substantive grounds, not just "well, he's electable and Palin can't win" or "Yeah Rah Rah Texas Perry Rah Rah."
Don’t be discouraged! Reagan did terrible in the early debates and look what happened. Give it time, things will become clearer as the time nears.
Yuck, GW! Did you hafta post that?????
Ann fancies herself a Kingmaker.... Funny that!
Not only is Rubio conservative but he'd bring the hispanic vote which I think is why Perry is being such a doofus on illegal immigration.
If there were, we wouldn't need a checks and balances. Sometimes I think some have forgotten that we have a Senate to win and seats in the House to win. Seems like they are saying the heck with Congress, let's get us the perfect candidate.
Wow! If he flies they must have to wait until they are airborne before allowing him to go to his seat in first class
This is all because they are afraid of Sarah.........that’s what this is all about, and that’s why money is on the side lines...awaiting Sarah.....these gop elites are scared they will lose power, as they should, and for my money the biggest enemies in DC AFTER bambi is Hairy harry and Chucky chesse
I`d been hoping for the same thing. Beating Obama should be the goal, but the Repubs` attacks on each other are more intense than I`ve seen in a long time. Certainly they need to one-up each other, but every message should be centered on undoing the massive damage the enemy has done to this country. Instead they`re just giving him a free set of TOTUS talking points.
Why does Coulter think she is crazy about him? Does anyone know. Just curious.
I’m not voting for Romney, and that is what it is coming down to. It’s his turn, we’ll start hearing. I’d vote for the fat man.
You know it is getting bad when you are tired of listening to the fill ins.
CHRISTIE DEFENDS MUSLIM JUDGE APPOINTMENT:
“But it was a follow-up question on the fear of Sharia Law that set the governor off. Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, its crazy! he cried. The guy is an American citizen! He concluded that the Sharia Law business is just crap and Im tried of dealing with the crazies, adding with disgust and frustration that its just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.
NO THANK YOU!!!
I for one and weary of Bristals various “meet the Press” episodes Grey. She does her mother no service by these antics. Bristal needs to cool her jets and I don’t see that happening any time soon.
Christie grabbed attention and some adoration because he BULLIED the unions.
Which means he is a bully when something doesn’t go his way.
Notice how he is stamping his feet about the muslim judge:
“If you don’t agree with me - you are stupid”.
Not showing respect for American Citizens on one issue - will be repeated on many issues.
Perry, who I also really like and would likely support, has gone off the deep end on immigration and has given me pause as to supporting him.
Good grief! I so strongly agree with you!!!
There is NO perfect candidate and never will be. The acronym, RINO, has been overused to the point of sheer stupidity.
(I would not have included Romney in that same list of examples though.)
I don’t care for Ann Coulter much.
She is just in it to sell insipid books for coffee table displays...
Well this should make Ann “yes that’s an adam’s apple” Colture wet her panties.
Another Big Government New World Order socialist running as a republican.
Not sure how people can keep a straight face when they mention Perry and Reagan in the same sentence, I know I can not.
Perry missed the Reagan revolution, I challenge him on his aids statements that he voted for Reagan twice
“How right you are Astronaut. If you arent pure here on FreeRepublic, then you are outcast. Reagan would be thrown to the wolves.
Ironic as hell.”
I agree with you and Astronaut. Then there’s the horrible verbal abuse he is getting from the same people for his weight. Very low-class.....and not charitable at all. What has happened to FreeRepublic lately?
These same types would not only call Reagan a RINO. They’d probably find similar fault with God Himself.
“Way too fat.”
Can you make any other superficial statements of criticism? If you are “way too skinny,” should we even listen to you?
“They are convinced they are somehow advancing the conservative cause and seem oblivious to the fact that they are making it more and more likely a moderate or a liberal will be our next POTUS.”
Agree. By the way, I really like the way Gingrich has performed in the debates. I’d LOVE to see him take on Obama in the same venues. The expressions on Obama’s face alone would be worth watching. ;-)
“And, yes, a handful of Freepers are posting attack pieces directly from websites and organizations paid for by Soros.”
I had begun to suspect some of this....because the ideas are certainly similar.
“Coulter is an idiot.
Her praise of Chris Christie is only proof of this.”
How many books have you written that support the conservative cause? What? You only write ad hominem posts, you say? Ahhhhhh.... I thought so....
“...shes nothing but a do as I say, not as I do mouthpiece.”
Really? Do you have any substantive proof for that?
I’m 350 and he’s a LOT bigger than I am, from every photo I’ve seen. Betting he’s at least 400-450lbs.
How about a Crist/Christie ticket? It’d be like a RINO Laurel & Hardy.
“Isnt he pro-abortion and gay marriage?”
“Conservatives are doing more to kill our possible nominees than the Libs. Obama must be laughing his ass off while we find our own candidates weaknesses and beat them over the head with it.”
Agreed. Such people are CWAB (Conservatives Without A Brain)...or else they are liberal trolls.
I’m tired of seeing so much pure ad hominem and childish name-calling. If one has a substantive reason for concern regarding Christie....then post that and a link to some sort of proof. Sheeeeshhhhh....
“Cant get over you guys not understanding vetting candidates.”
Vetting has SUBSTANCE. It’s not merely ad hominem and name-calling (RINO being the most overused name recently). I think many people are wanting a lot MORE substance in judging these candidates.
I know Krauthammer is now considered a subversive tool by some on here, but he nailed it last night. We have to defeat Obama otherwise four more years of this makes our conversion to a socialist democracy like Europe irreversible. We have to take the most conservative candidate who can win.
I like Christie for his fiscal views but his time passed here in the last month. If we aren’t going with a very conservative candidate, the current version of Romney is looking acceptable to me. He appears to be a safe and polished choice who is gaining momentum.
If you could get Rubio on the ticket, a Romney-Rubio ticket would be extremely formidable in the electoral college. We would have a shot at taking PA, MI, WI and maybe a couple east coast states while still keeping the South.
Then you let Paul Ryan and Jim DeMint set the agenda in the House and Senate respectively. Romney would follow along. This scenario could work out ok.
No I voted for him for governor.
If he ran for President he would not win the primary in NJ nor the General.
“And very presidential looking./s Last month he went to hospital with breathing problems.”
Why is this a problem? I don’t think Cheney was in the best of health and he was one NY Times article away from the Presidency.
Christie will not run for President. But he did just throw his hat into the ring for VP. In my humble opinion, Christie or Rubio will be the VP pick. Just a question on which one will help Palin the most.
I’m saying he would be weak in is own state.
Look at his latest job approval numbers for a start.
