    Townhall ^ | Apr 10, 2012 | Kate Hicks
    Conservatives love brash New Jersey Governor Chris Christie because he always speaks his mind, and his remarks at a forum on the economy (hosted by George W. Bush) were no different. Christie talked about the nation's bleak outlook, thanks to out-of-control entitlement spending -- and as usual, he didn't mince words. Christie spent most of his 30-minute speech on New Jersey budget issues, but brought up national policy toward the end. He said it is the least optimistic period he’s ever seen for the nation. "It’s because government’s now telling them, stop dreaming, stop striving, we’ll take care of you....
  • Chris Christie: Nation of couch potatoes [turning into a “paternalistic entitlement society”]

    Christie: Nation of couch potatoes By: Darius Dixon April 10, 2012 12:01 PM EDT New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday that the U.S. is turning into a “paternalistic entitlement society” that will bankrupt the country financially and morally because “we’ll have a bunch of people sittin’ on a couch waiting for their next government check.” “I’ve never seen a less optimistic time in my lifetime in this country and people wonder why,” the first-term Republican governor said at the Bush Institute Conference on Taxes and Economic Growth in New York City. “I think it’s really simple. It’s because government’s...
  • Christie and veteran opposed to Rutgers-Rowan merger get into shouting match

    Gov. Christie waded into a skirmish with a former Navy SEAL on Thursday as the weeks-long battle over his plan to merge Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University spilled into a town-hall meeting in Burlington County. The yelling match erupted Thursday in Roebling after Christie told veteran William Brown - a Rutgers-Camden law student and former Democratic Assembly candidate who opposes the merger - that the school would definitely be folded into Rowan. It ended with the governor dismissing Brown as an "idiot" and police hustling the man out of the firehouse in the Florence Township community. Outside, Brown fumed that the...

    The Hill ^ | February 29, 2012 | Bernie Quigley
    On a recent Lou Dobbs show, The Hill commentator Dick Morris was asked about the primary outcome: Mitt Romney wins Michigan and then goes on to sweep Super Tuesday and wins the nomination. He beats Obama and is elected president in 2012. Makes sense. But Laura Ingraham, who brings intuition to her take, said Tuesday morning on Imus that if Romney wins Michigan, look for a Gingrich insurgence on Super Tuesday. In a word, Gingrich will finally have commandeered the insurgent’s role, taking it finally from Santorum (and Perry, Cain, Bachmann and Paul). And since Sarah Palin was named VP...

    Chris Christie has resisted every temptation to run for president, but he’s no longer sure he’d be able to resist the temptation to join the GOP ticket as the vice presidential nominee. If Mitt Romney asked, he just might say yes, he said yesterday. Christian Heinze of the website GOP12 notes that Christie, the popular sharp-tongued Republican who endorsed Mitt Romney’s candidacy for president, is now singing a different tune when asked about being on the GOP ticket in 2012.“If Gov. Romney were to come and talk to me about it, I would listen because I love my party enough...

    Rick Santorum says his 2008 comments that “Satan has set his sights on the United States of America” are “not relevant” to the 2012 presidential race, but Chris Christie told me on “GMA” that Santorum is wrong. “Listen, I think anything you say as a presidential candidate is relevant. It is by definition relevant. You’re asking to be president of the United States. I don’t think [Santorum's] right about that. I think it is relevant what he says. I think people want to make an evaluation, a complete evaluation of anyone who asks to sit in the Oval Office,” the...

    The Politico ^ | February 22, 2012 | Mackenzie Weinger
    What happens if Romney loses Michigan next week? Some are saying it could mean the Republican Party needs a new candidate to take on President Barack Obama. Here’s POLITICO’s list of 10 people who could jump into the race (or be tapped as the GOP standardbearer at a brokered convention): 1. Jeb Bush: The former governor from a key state is the top choice for many wishful-thinking Republicans, although he’s said repeatedly he won’t do it. 2. Mitch Daniels: The Indiana chief executive, who gave the high-profile 2012 Republican response to the State of the Union, decided last year he...
  • New Jersey Gov. Christie vetoes gay ‘marriage’ bill, emphasizes civil union benefits

    TRENTON, New Jersey, February 20, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - New Jersey governor Chris Christie vetoed a gay “marriage” bill hours after it passed the legislature on Friday, saying that the issue should be offered to voters in a referendum to decide. “I am adhering to what I’ve said since this bill was first introduced – an issue of this magnitude and importance, which requires a constitutional amendment, should be left to the people of New Jersey to decide,” Christie said in his statement accompanying the veto. The Senate had passed a measure redefining marriage on Monday 24-16, before the Assembly voted...

    At various times over the past few months the political media pack has obsessed that, in turn, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, or Newt Gingrich could be the surprise presidential nominee for the Republican Party. There was even a boomlet for Donald Trump. Given that recent pundit history, and with confidence that I can be as wrong as the next person, I’m not at all reluctant to now make my prediction for how the 2012 race for the White House will finally resolve: It will be a three-way contest: Christie and Rubio, the Republicans; Obama and Clinton,...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie kept his vow to veto a bill allowing same-sex marriage Friday as he sent it back to the legislature, reiterating that the voters should decide if they want a societal change as significant as allowing gay marriage. The Republican governor vetoed the bill, titled Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption Act, which the N.J. Assembly passed Thursday, three days after its passage in the state Senate. "I am adhering to what I've said since this bill was first introduced – an issue of this magnitude and importance, which requires a constitutional amendment, should be left to...

    Flags will be lowered in New Jersey Saturday, the day of Whitney Houston’s funeral. But a Marine mom in Arlington says it’s an honor Houston doesn’t deserve. When Phyllis McGeath heard Gov. Chris Christie had ordered flags lowered to half-staff for Houston, she said she felt a pain deep inside her. “I was hurt and offended. Disappointed. Saddened,” she said. “I felt like the honor that was given to my son was tarnished.” McGeath had three sons who were active duty Marines. Her oldest, Philip, was killed by a suicide bomber just four weeks ago in Afghanistan. He was 25....

    New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie will reportedly plan a public tribute for famed performer Whitney Houston, who died Saturday at the age of 48. “Obviously, Whitney Houston was an important part of the fabric – the cultural fabric of this state,” Mr. Christie said at a press conference Tuesday, adding that Houston, a Newark native, is in the “pantheon of great New Jersey musical talents” like Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Bruce Springsteen. “Her terribly premature death is an awful loss for her family and the incredible New Jersey musical family,” he said. “Our prayers are with her family,”...

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced Tuesday that he plans to order flags on public buildings to fly at half-staff on the day of Whitney Houston's funeral to honor the songstress and Jersey native. "Whitney Houston was an important part of the cultural fabric of this state," Christie said during a press release Tuesday. Christie also said the pop legend belongs in the same category as Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Bruce Springsteen. He said he will sign the order later in the week after Houston's family makes a final decision regarding time and place of the funeral. A Newark...

    Last week, Sarah Palin stepped over the edge of civility. Fox Business Network host Eric Bolling played a clip of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on “Meet the Press” in which Christie said Newt Gingrich “has been an embarrassment” to the Republican Party. “Poor Chris,” Palin responded. “This was a rookie mistake. He played right into the media's hand.” Palin added that Christie must have been shaken up by Romney's second-place showing in South Carolina. “You kind of get your panties in a wad, and you may say things that you regret later. And I think that that is what...
