    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Tuesday expressed deep disappointment that details of his vice presidential vetting were leaked to the authors of a new book about the 2012 election. "It's very disappointing," Christie told CNN. "I think it's a complete violation of trust of me and the spirit within which I entered that process." -snip- According to the book, "Double Down: Game Change 2012," by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Romney advisers had major reservations about Christie's weight and physical health, along with concerns about Christie having been investigated by the Justice Department for exceeding travel reimbursement rates...

    Gov. Chris Christie said today that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called him immediately after details of a new book about last year's vice presidential vetting process became public Thursday. -snip- The book also found Christie was on the short-list to be Romney's vice presidential running mate, but that during vetting the former Massachusetts governor's people were "stunned by the garish controversies” lurking in the shadows of his record, which was "littered with potential land mines." Those obstacles included his decision to steer hefty contracts to donors and political allies, a Justice Department report ripping his spending on travel...

    The New York Times ^ | October 4, 2007 | JAMES C. DOBSON
    After two hours of deliberation, we voted on a resolution that can be summarized as follows: If neither of the two major political parties nominates an individual who pledges himself or herself to the sanctity of human life, we will join others in voting for a minor-party candidate. Those agreeing with the proposition were invited to stand. The result was almost unanimous. The other issue discussed at length concerned the advisability of creating a third party if Democrats and Republicans do indeed abandon the sanctity of human life and other traditional family values. Though there was some support for the...

    Trent Lott is a weenie and should step aside so that a Republican with huevos can lead. Apparently, he made the equivalent stupid statement 20 years ago. Trent, go play with your pom-poms and vote when they tell you it's time to vote. What Lott said about Strom Thurmond was just stupid. The Dixiecrat Party thought blacks were equivalent to animals in the jungle. That is not what we Republicans believe. We believe in judging INDIVIDUALS by what they do and how they act. That having been said, this thread is an opportunity to site all the outrageous statements made...
