Christie: Call from Springsteen made me weep
Foxnews ^

Posted on 11/06/2012 4:18:45 AM PST by chessplayer

KEANSBURG, N.J. – New Jersey's famously tough-talking governor finally got a hug from his longest-running unrequited love.

The famously liberal Springsteen had never previously acknowledged the Republican governor.

Christie says he wept at home after talking by phone to his idol, calling it a major highlight during a tough week.

Cracking under pressure is simply not okay for an elected official.
There it is. Any Pol who weighs 350 pounds has neither the discipline nor self-respect to hold public office.

300 lbs of meatloaf, mashed potatoes for brains, a spine of gravy, and a heart of rainbow jello and wha-da-ya-got? a Liberal through and through... Liberals will swoon to him, but I despise him and his faux machismo...

“Let’s just ease up on Christie.” No. His obsequious fawning (I know; that’s redundant) over Hussein hit the “pause” button on Romney’s momentum. I will not ease up on Christie. If the Muslim gets another term, a huge reason will be Chris Christie. “Dirty Dancing” is a cute movie, but when the remake stars Obama and Christie, just eewwww. The GOP put him in office and he needs to “dance with the one what brung him” — not defect to the dark side.

“He is under tremendous stress and clearly it’s getting to him.” He’s supposed to be a leader. He needs to put on his big-boy pants and... lead.

“Too bad the media is paying attention to the Christie / Romney / Obama soap opera and not the catastrophe.” Too bad the MSM isn’t paying any attention to Benghazi.

“This drama is not helping the people of NJ it’s simply a media diversion from the appalling ineffectiveness of FEMA and Obama. It’s simply a media diversion from the appalling ineffectiveness of FEMA and Obama.” (1) I care more about the future of America than the people of NJ. They helped put Hussein in the White Hut. (2) The MSM wouldn’t cover the ineffectiveness of Obama and FEMA anyhow.

Puhleeze... crying over a phone call from a rock star? He’s star-struck and Hussein all over again.

Christie has a streak of liberal idiocy in him, & this is just a part of it. Weeping over a chat with a guy that sings a good tune - Michael Jackson Groupie Syndrome.

Do people give the same standard to their doctor. The surgeon lost the patient (your family member) on the table. It was completely his actions that are to blame. But let’s give hime a break, do you know what it’s like to have 4 different things going wrong all at once?

The Joisey Lardass has sold out (he was a RINO to begin with), and could very well switch his Party Affiliation in the future. If money can buy you, and Principles are sold-out, the People have no need for you.

He's getting even for being passed-over for VP, and it's showing his lack of character, for sure.

Wish we had a really good search function. I know there were several FREEPERS out there saying it had to be Christie...that he would be the right choice for POTUS or VEEP.

How about it now? Anyone willing to fess up?

We don’t mind your Gov blubbering and losing it and screwing up things for you guys as much as you might, but as soon as he brought it into a national arena grabbing BO like Bugs Bunny on a roll, he opened it up to national criticism.

Chrstie is a politician who has to represent his people (especially in a disaster) and hopes to win re-election. He’s not perfect, but if you lived here for the past 15 years you’d be thankful that he is the governor.

***The surgeon lost the patient (your family member) on the table.***

That’s your best analogy?

Christie did not cause the storm or its devastation!!! He is doing his best. If it’s not good enough - then he will be voted out.

Christie has the emotional maturity of a teenager. He cries after a telephone conversation with an aging pop star? He has seen "hundreds of Springsteen's concerts"?

About three minutes of Springsteen's "music" and "singing" at some big football game half-time was ALL I could take.

If Christie decides to switch parties, he should be reminded that political jumpers are nevermore trusted by either side, ever.

I second that. Other elected officials have had to deal with disasters in their states and didn’t make fools of themselves in the process. Haley Barbour didn’t act like this. Bruce Springsteen? Crying over Bruce Sprinsteen? Sheesh, I’m a “girl” and I stopped crying over celebrities back when it was David Cassidy.

Isn’t Christie complicit in getting Section 8 housing and all the concomitant problems plopped right in the middle of safe suburbs, where people paid hard-earned money to flee bad schools and high crime? If I was from NJ I would never forgive him for that, but I would leave his state and take my tax-paying azz with me.

There are people hurting all across the country as well as the many in NJ after the storm. Yet Christie “weeps” over a call from a over the hill rock star. What a star struck boot licker.

The famously liberal Springsteen ..
The 'Boss' is also 'famously untalented'. His guitar playing stinks, it's amateurish to say the least. Watch any video, it's all: down 1,2,3,4. down 1,2,3,4. down 1,2,3,4 - gag! .. and people mocked Elvis - Ha!.

All, or 'most', of his songs are three chord songs in the Key of E in the I, IV, V progression, one of the easiest there is to play: E, A, B (or B7). As such his 'E Street Band' should have been named the 'E String Band' (/s). Yeah he can play a few licks, whoopee, so can any beginning student after a few lessons. His now departed Horn Player was the one with talent and who made that band.

The only good thing about him is his Fender 'Esquire' guitar (The predecessor to the Fender Telecaster) and is worth its weight in gold. And his only really good song was his first hit: Born To Run.

Beautiful lyrics from Jay-Z who appeared with Obama and Bruce Springsteen. Just charming! I can’t believe we’ve come to this. The president actually embraces this human scum.

[Intro: Jay Z]
Uhh, uh uh uh
It’s big pimpin baby..
It’s big pimpin, spendin G’s
Feel me.. uh-huh uhh, uh-huh..
Ge-ge-geyeah, geyeah
Ge-ge-geyeah, geyeah..

[Verse 1: Jay Z]
You know I, thug ‘em, fuck ‘em, love ‘em, leave ‘em,
cause I don’t fucking need ‘em
Take ‘em out the hood, keep ‘em lookin’ good
But I don’t fuckin feed e’m
First time they fuss I’m breezin
Talkin bout, “What’s the reasons?”
I’m a pimp in every sense of the word, bitch
Better trust and believe ‘em
In the cut where I keep ‘em
til I need a nut, til I need to beat the guts
Then it’s, beep beep and I’m pickin ‘em up
Let em play with the dick in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs
Divorce him and split his bucks
Just because you got good head, I’ma break bread
so you can be livin it up? Shit I..
parts with nothin, y’all be frontin
Me give my heart to a woman?
Not for nothin, never happen
I’ll be forever mackin
Heart cold and assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience
And I hate waitin
Hoe get yo’ ass in
And let’s RI-I-I-I-I-IDE.. check em out now
RI-I-I-I-I-IDE, yeah
And let’s RI-I-I-I-I-IDE.. check em out now
RI-I-I-I-I-IDE, yeah

[Chorus: Jay Z]
We doin, big pimpin, we spendin cheese
Check em out now
Big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
We doin, big pimpin up in N.Y.C.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B
Yo yo yo, big pimpin, spendin cheese
We doin, big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
We doin, big pimpin up in N.Y.C.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B

[Verse 2: Bun B]
Nigga it’s the, big Southern rap impresario
Comin straight up out the black bar-rio
Makes a mill’ up off a sorry hoe
Then sit back and be my sce-nawr-e-oh
Oops, my bad, that’s my scenario
No I can’t fuck a scary hoe
Now every time, every place, everywhere we go
Hoes start pointin, they say, “There he go!”
Now these motherfuckers know we carry mo’ heat than a little bit
We don’t pull it out over little shit
And if you catch a lick when I spit, then it won’t be a little hit
Go read a book you illiterate son of a bitch and step up yo’ vocab
Don’t be surprised if yo’ hoe stab out with me
and you see us comin down on yo’ slab
Livin ghetto-fabulous, so mad, you just can’t take it
But nigga if you hate now
then you wait while I get yo’ bitch butt-naked, just break it
You gotta pay like you weigh wet wit two pairs of clothes on
Now get yo’ ass to the back as I’m flyin to the track
Timbaland let me spit my pro’s on
posted up in the pro-zone
That’s the track that we breakin these hoes on
Ain’t the track that we flow’s on
But when shit get hot, then the glock start poppin like ozone
We keep hoes crunk like Trigga-man
Fa real it don’t get no bigga man
Don’t trip, let’s flip, gettin throwed on the flip
and roll with the motherfuckin Jigga Man, fool

[Chorus: Bun B]
We be, big pimpin, spendin cheese
We be, big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
We be, big pimpin down in P.A.T.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B
Cause we be, big pimpin, spendin cheese
And we be, big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
Cause we be, big pimpin in P.A.T.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B, nigga

[Verse 3: Pimp C]
Uhh.. smokin out, pourin up, keepin lean up in my cup
All my cars got leather and wood, in my hood we call it buck
Everybody wanna ball, holla at broads at the mall
If he up, watch him fall, nigga I can’t fuck witch’all
If I wasn’t rappin baby, I would still be ridin Mercedes
Comin down and sippin daily, no records till whytee pays me
Uhhh, now what y’all know bout them Texas boys
Comin down in candy toys, smokin weed and talkin noise (noise, noise)

[Chorus: Bun B]
We be, big pimpin, spendin cheese
We be, big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
We be, big pimpin down in P.A.T.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B
Cause we be, big pimpin, spendin cheese
And we be, big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
Cause we be, big pimpin in P.A.T.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B, nigga

She did, on Hannity last night. She said that when Obama was first elected, he denied federal education funding to New Jersey because of Christie, so Christie felt like he had to do something to ensure that Jersey would get federal help for Sandy recovery.

Well what did you expect from this crazy sob after THIS??

Chris Christie goes berserk when criticised about appointing a Muslim judge:

“Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy!” he cried. “The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,” adding with disgust and frustration that “it’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.”

“She did, on Hannity last night. She said that when Obama was first elected, he denied federal education funding to New Jersey because of Christie, so Christie felt like he had to do something to ensure that Jersey would get federal help for Sandy recovery.”

don’t recall her saying all of that. She did allude to it.

It’s not good enough anyway ofr either her nor CC.

He should have acted with as much character as anyone with responsibility is expected to act, and if not more, and turned away from BO like Rick Perry did regarding the fires.

It brought BO’s mishandling of Govt funds (FEMA funds). Anne said FEMA shouldn’t work that way, but we have to accept that it does. Well, yes, anne, with enabling governors and their fans it does.

Well, no it shouldn’t and CC had a chancce to say, “hey, Bronco, we don’t need FEMA funds so badly that we have to pretend they’re yours personally, so we NJers are just not going to grovel.”

As a republican, that’s what CC is expected to do. But NJ Pubs maybe expect us to realize Norhteast Pubs are not quite the same. as others.

“I know there were several FREEPERS out there saying it had to be Christie...that he would be the right choice for POTUS or VEEP.”

I’ve always supported Christie in general because of how bad things are here in NJ; he was elected to fix them and is doing a decent job (ask the thousands of laid-off municipal employees). I’ve always maintained that Christie wouldn’t play well outside of states with similar problems, and have NEVER suggested he should be veep. I think the number of FReepers who thought he should was always fairly small.

Wow, this thread’s getting tough on a guy who’d record so far in NJ is nothing short of amazing. On top of that, his state is in big troble, and he announced TO EVERYBODY that he could give a rip about the election at this point.

He’s got people in the cold right now, FEMA’s completely let him down, and he’s got union thugs turning away non-union crews trying to help get the lights back on.

He probably hasn’t slept in a while, to boot.

I grew up idolizing Springsteen too. I haven’t bought any of his stuff since Tunnel of Love, which was pretty weak too.

Christie is being a Jersyite first, and a politician second. Springsteen’s a washed up hack, but then Elvis went that way too. You see the guy the way you’d like to remember him.

Not everything is about politics. I suggest the Christie-haters put a quaalude under their tongue and send up a few words to the Lord that this day turns out to be the landslide we all hope it is.

We’ll need a few more after that towards Romney being as conservative as he says he’s going to be.

Otherwise, well . . .

Bruce is adored by everybody that was born in NJ, rich, poor, young, old. When Christie was running for Governor he made it clear he was a Springsteen fan, stated that he has been to every concert and will continue to do so, he asked Springsteen to sing at one of his rallies and Bruce refused. If I remember correctly Springsteen told him to not use his songs during the campaign. Christie to his credit won't let up on Sprinsteen must have drove Bruce crazy.
Most of us in NJ didn't get to see the Obama hug because we didn't have electric, but we all agree that Christie is doing a great job, well except the government check cashiers.
The town he was in was totally devastated in the storm, it was hit with a 15 ft surge, the flood traveled 1 mile inland and destroyed everything. It is a Democratic town and no one ever shows up for a photo op, I for one was so glad he stopped there.
This area is devastated and if hugging Obama will get up the help we need then I say hug away.
For the record I was not born in NJ and gave up years ago trying to figure out the love for Bruce, even NJ born republicans love him.
