UN renders itself even more useless, appoints country that stones women to its women’s rights commission
As if you needed any additional reasons to dismiss the usefulness of the United Nations, the UN has decided to give you one:
Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged “immodest.”
Most speculation is that Governor Oompa Loompa will run as an independent, bolting from the party to which he’s belonged his whole life on account of getting his clock cleaned by upstart Tea Party fave Marco Rubio. But maybe Crist is thinking about running as a Democrat? Details:
Marc Ambinder reports:
Charlie Crist, soon to be independent Senate candidate from Florida, tried to reach White House chief of staff Emanuel through intermediates. WH refuses to take the call. Dems plan big talent/money blitz for Kendrick Meek.
What’s Crist up to? Might he be interested in cutting a deal to caucus with the Democrats if they chase Meek from the field?
Who knows? But the most plausible path to victory for Crist is if Meek backs him. That’s a real possibility, I think, later in the game if Rubio and Crist are each getting about 40% in the polls and Meek is getting about 20%. But, as voters get to know the lesser-known Rubio and Meek, it’s probably more likely they emerge as the frontrunners and Crist fades as election day approaches.
And then does Crist throw his support to Meek in hopes of getting a nice ambassadorship? Again, who knows? In a three-way race things could get a little crazy (maybe starting with the speculation about how crazy things could get).
Crist is dripping with desperation. He is going all out and for broke. If he doesn’t win this Senate race, his once-promising career is deader than Ted Kennedy. (Sidebar: Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.)
Not content with letting MSNBC steal the absurd headlines, the AP decides to one-up the little-watched cable network with this headline:
An excerpt that needs to be re-read to be believed:
Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes it a crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants.
Is the AP implying that it isn’t a crime to be breaking the law by being here illegally? If not, then the word “illegal” has no meaning.
Two thoughts here:
1. Yeah, right, sure they’ll leave! Suuuuuuure they will.
2. If all it takes to export criminal aliens back to whence they came is a law like that of AZ, then every state needs to pass one pronto!
And by “racist right-wing news outlet”, naturally I’m referring to…the Washington comPost!
Hmmm. I guess all black people look the same to the comPost’s writers and editors. Good thing they’ve got all those multiple layers of fact-checkers that we pitiful bloggers don’t have, huh? 😆
Found in the Lone Star State. God bless Texas!
Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore. Story, along with screen cap, here.
I’m going out on a limb and guessing that MSNBC and both of their viewers totally missed the “illegal” part, since “illegal” means “it’s a crime”. But nope…no liberal media bias!
Unemployment and underemployment are in double digits these days. Michael Ramirez thinks he knows why:
Yeah, businesses are loathe to increase expenses like salaries when they’re being sodomized by the administration and the leftist Congress in terms of crippling taxes and expensive burdensome regulations. Businesses can be funny that way.
Obama’s midterm message: White and Asian men who may have voted for us don’t need to bother this time
The race hustler-in-chief knows how to make friends and influence people, no?
The Democratic National Committee this morning released this clip of the president rallying the troops, if rather coolly, for 2010. Obama’s express goal: “reconnecting” with the voters who voted for the first time in 2008, but who may not plan to vote in the lower-profile Congressional elections this year.
Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness (quite the euphemism for “bigotry”, no? – Ed.) about his coalition in his appeal to “young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.”
Yeah, who needs those white guys and Asian dudes anymore? Pull together this November to stick it to Whitey, right?
Good luck with that, ObaMao.
AZ just passed a state law that enforces immigration laws at the state level.
CNN’s headline? “Immigration law polarizes Arizonans”
If, by “polarizing”, they mean “supported by 70% of Arizonans“, then yeah…”polarizing”.
Question: Do you recall having seen any headlines that described ObamaCare (opposed by nearly the same percentage as those who support AZ’s new criminal immigration law) as “polarizing”? Me neither.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
I have given Steele a great deal of slack. He inherited a party machine that was rusty and outdated, drunk with power and prestige. He had quite a rehabilitation job to do.
But dude, enough is enough already. Check this out:
Why should an African-American vote Republican?
“You really don’t have a reason to, to be honest — we haven’t done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True,” Republican National Chairman Michael Steele told 200 DePaul University students Tuesday night.
Steele — a former Maryland lieutenant governor and seminarian serving as the first African-American head of the Republican Party — offered a frank assessment of the American political system.
Mr. Steele, with all due respect, you’re a moron. As the head of the GOP, it is your job to sell people on the party, not to repel them. While it may sound like a “frank assessment”, it is nothing less than idiocy. If Steele doesn’t think the GOP has done a good job of convincing blacks to vote Republican, then how about letting me try?
Faith: Studies show that blacks attend church services more regularly than any ethnic group in America. Tell me, which party has done more to undermine religion, remove God from the public consciousness, and has an overall more hostile view of Christianity than Democrats? The Bible says that if you are ashamed of Jesus, He will be ashamed of you on Judgment Day. Democrats says that the Christian faith of blacks is no more or less important than any other faith or lack thereof. In other words, Democrats trivialize most blacks’ faith.
Abortion: Just over one-third of all aborted babies are black. Margaret Sanger would be proud. Polls show that blacks are more pro-life than whites are. That’s one position the GOP could trumpet to the black community.
Welfare: This harmful program has almost single-handedly decimated black families across America. The Civil War was fought in part to end slavery, yet the creation of welfare clandestinely reinstituted it. The way that welfare works undermines marriage (i.e. “you get married, you don’t qualify for welfare or as much welfare money”) and encourages parents to download more kids they couldn’t otherwise afford. This, in turn, leads to an astronomically high out-of-wedlock birthrate in the black community, estimated to be 70%. For those of you on the left, that’s a bad thing!
Educational choice: Whether vouchers or whatever, the fact is that virtually all parents (irrespective of ethnic background) want the best for their kids, and that goes doubly for their education. Survey after survey shows that black parents, especially from poverty-stricken areas, would rather send their kids to private schools or better performing public schools than the ones to which their kids are doomed. The best way to escape the ghetto is to get a top-notch education, yet the Democrats (including black Democrats who ignore their constituents on this issue) fight it tooth and nail. A poorly educated constituency who have given up on dreams make good Democrats, and education is a big obstacle to the left of maintaining that stranglehold.
Taken for granted: Let’s face it, over 90% of blacks are Democrats. What incentive does the left have to improve the lives of blacks when they know they’ve got the whole voting bloc in their back pocket? Let’s use an analogy. Let’s say that you love Italian food, and there’s only one Italian restaurant in your city. The food is average, the service sucks, and the prices are high. A competing restaurant moves in around the corner, offering similar menu items, and they start draining customers off of the first restaurant. The first restaurant now realizes the possibility that your business can no longer be taken for granted, so they either sink (i.e. keep the same bad food and service, and lose customers) or they swim (i.e. improve their food, service, and prices). You now have choices, and you will no longer be taken for granted.
Insanity: It’s defined as doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results. If the aforementioned problems are still there, about 40 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, and during this entire time frame, blacks have continuously voted for Democrats, does this not qualify as insanity? Most in the ghettos, inner cities, and poor rural areas do not see their lives as having been improved…yet they keep voting for the same people who have not helped to improve their lots in life? If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to go where you’ve always gone. Charles Barkley had once considered running for governor of Alabama as a Republican, and his mother was amazed, until he used this reasoning (and I’m paraphrasing): Ma, I see the same guys playing checkers every day in the park, and they’ve been there for 30+ years. What have Democrats done for them to have given them better opportunities?
Bigotry: While this is a trait that the left reflexively attributes to the right, it is nothing more than projection. Republicans refuse to hyphenate Americans, and they don’t think that because someone is black, they are inferior or predisposed to failure. The left does. If you want to see how the left really thinks of blacks and other minorities, listen to their rhetoric when a black becomes educated, thinks for himself, and (gasp!) believes in merit over hand-outs…in short, when a black becomes conservative. The contempt is dripping from their spittle-covered cakeholes. I mean, military veterans are about 65% Republican, but you don’t usually hear contempt for the remaining 35% coming from the right, do you? No, the contempt for those who stray from the plantation comes from the left. Apparently, they don’t think too highly of blacks who can do for themselves, maybe because that disrupts their own subconscious views that blacks are inferior?
In other words, Republicans will do a lot for the black community. We will honor the shared Christian faith we have, not trivialize it. We will not condone slaughtering black babies. We will reform welfare to assist, not to subsist. We will not see the community through the prism of skin-color or hyphenations, but rather through a colorblind and unjaundiced pair of eyes. We will not take anyone’s political support for granted, but will instead work to “earn your business”. We are commited to giving everyone the best educational choices, regardless of where someone lives or grows up. We do not think someone is predisposed to ignorance or inferiority.
I could go on, but I think you get the point. There are plenty of reasons for black Americans to take a look at the Republican Party, and if the party’s chairman can’t think of any, then put me or any other Republican who does see reasons to vote GOP in his place.
Arguably the best letter to the editor of all time! Screen cap:
Are we talking about John McCain, aka Juan McAmnesty? The same McCain that bellyached about having to “build the g#d#mned. fence“?
Yep, the same McCain. Quote:
“I believe that we can convince our Republican colleagues that we have to secure the border first,” McCain said during an appearance on KFYI radio in Arizona. “There’s no point of having immigration reform unless you can have the borders secure first.”
I don’t suppose this has anything to do with the fact that his numbers in the AZ primary have begun to crater, does it? I mean, he’s fighting a longtime opponent of criminal immigration in J.D. Hayworth, and McCain has seen his fortunes go much like those of Charlie Crist in FL: from huge primary lead, to falling massively. McCain still leads Hayworth in the polls, but that once-insurmountable lead looks…well, surmountable now. How humiliating would it be, for both McCain and the GOP establishment, if the party’s presidential candidate from two years ago gets whacked in a Senate primary?
Straight talk McCain: he will straight up tell you how it is, and if you don’t like it, he’s more than willing to tell you something else until he figures out what you want to hear.
Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
Well, maybe it was just a security precaution. Oh, wait…
People who have covered the White House for years tell me that’s an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.
In fairness to the White House, this was done by the police. But were the cops asked to do this? Considering the light-skinned…er, I mean “thin-skinned” Chicago thug machine running the show right now, it isn’t far-fetched to draw the conclusion, now is it?
New White House slogan: Transparency is for suckas!
Found on Al Gore’s invention somewhere. 😆
Folks, as much as it pains me to say this, I have to be honest: Bubba was right.
Yes, indeed. Recall last week that Bubba took a break from poking portly interns to tell us that Tea Partiers are all potential Tim McVeighs. He warned us that the angst against elected government officials could translate into actual threats of violence. He was right, as was seen here in FL. From the Orlando Slant-inel:
FBI agents and representatives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said they arrested a Spring Hill man on a charge of threatening harm against U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite.
The Brooksville Republican’s office received a “telephonic threat” on March 25 from an unidentified male, authorities said.
Late Sunday, FBI agents and Hernando deputies arrested Erik Lawrence Pidrman, 66, in connection with the threat. The charge involves “threatening to assault or murder” a U.S. official, according to FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier.
Pidrman’s bail was set at $20,000 on Monday, and he was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring and home-detention device.
Hernando deputies and the FBI started a joint investigation after Brown-Waite’s Brooksville office received the threat.
Brown-Waite’s district includes parts of Lake, Polk and Marion counties, as well as all of Citrus, Hernando, and Sumter counties and portions of Levy and Pasco counties.
Her office released a text of the voicemail soon after it was received March 25.
The caller stated: “Just wanna let you know I have 27 people that are going to make sure that this [expletive deleted] does not live to see her next term. Goodbye.”
Wait, what? A threat against a Republican legislator? Is this what BJ Clinton was talking about?
It gets better: the nutbar who threated Congresswoman Brown-Waite is a Democrat, having donated to BJ’s wife’s failed 2008 presidential bid. Luckily, the Slant-inel pointed out the Hillary connection for us.
Of course I’m kidding! There’s no way the Slant-inel would point that out. That kind of deep digging and investigative journalism would have required a lot of resources…such as a Google search. Hell, a nanocalorie might have been burned if the Slant-inel‘s reporters would have done that! But nope, no liberal media bias!
The left’s narrative just took a big hit with this story.
Bernard Goldberg, former CBS News reporter who wrote the bestseller Bias about what he saw firsthand and behind the scenes, had this zinger for Jon Stewart’s interview of liberal NYT columnist (pardon the redundancy) Frank Rich:
But if clearly you want to be a social commentator, more than just a comedian and if you want to be a good one, you better find some guts because even though you criticize liberals as well as conservatives, congratulations on that, when you had Frank Rich on your show, who generalizes all the time about conservatives and Republicans being bigots, you didn’t ask him a single tough question. You gave him a lap dance. You practically had your tongue down his throat.
The cherry on the sundae, my friends. You’re welcome:
You are not nearly as edgy as you think you are. You are just a safe, Jay Leno with a much smaller audience, but you get to say the f-bomb, which gives your incredibly unsophisticated audience the illusion, the illusion that you’re courageous and that you’re a renegade. But it’s only an illusion.
Ouch! Nice smackdown, Bernie.
Phones open this week. Feel free to call in. This week’s main discussion will be the Tea Parties under attack by the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy), “crashers”, Bubba, B.O., and more…Sunday night on Crush Liberalism radio!
See you there!
The audacity of irony. Quote:
Aussie Reporter: One of your state department officials said there was meeting of minds between you and Kevin Rudd. Is there a meeting of minds (with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd)?
Barack Obama: I really think there is. Kevin is somebody who I probably share as much of a world view as any world leader out there. I find him smart, but humble.
Got that? “Rudd is smart and humble…you know, kinda like I am both smart and humble!” Oozing awesomeness, no?
Dude’s arrogance knows no bounds.
For those of you outside of FL, let me set the stage here for you:
Yesterday, Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed Senate Bill 6, which was a bill aimed at merit pay for teachers. The bill was massively popular among Republicans, massively unpopular among Democrats, and I am led to believe most teachers, regardless of their political affiliations, were vehemently opposed to the language of the bill. (Sidebar: I know teachers who are conservative, and many of them had grave reservations about the bill’s text, not the intent.) Anywho, this isn’t a post about the merits of SB6, so allow me to continue…
Crist has been getting pummeled by Marco Rubio in the FL GOP Senate primary polls. Crist went from being +30% last year to -30% now. He has said repeatedly that he wasn’t going to become an independent, preferring to tough it out in the Republican primary. But there are indications that he may pull a Joe Lieberman and switch anyway.
First, it was speculated that by vetoing a bill that he himself had great input in crafting, Crist would essentially be ending his career in the GOP. He did indeed veto the bill. After all, if you are desperately craving Independent street cred, how better to get some of it than to screw one of your party’s top pet projects?
Secondly, a Quinnipiac poll (not exactly the most reliable polling history in the world) yesterday showed Crist with a statistically insignificant lead over Rubio and Meek in a three-way race in November. Granted, it is a single poll and taken as a snapshot in time, but given Crist’s implosion and no relief in sight, any glimmer of hope will be embraced by him.
Finally, and possibly most significant, the massively popular former governor Jeb Bush has piled on Crist for his veto…
I am disappointed by the veto of Senate Bill 6. By taking this action, Governor Crist has jeopardized the ability of Florida to build on the progress of the last decade, which includes raising student achievement across the board, narrowing the achievement gap for poor and minority students, and improving graduation rates. Florida’s sustained improvement is the result of bold reforms that were challenging, controversial and sometimes even unpopular. Reform is hard work but without a commitment to change, Florida would not be 8th in the nation today.
…and former Senator Connie Mack, who had been chairing Crist’s Senate campaign, resigned after the veto:
Gov. Charlie Crist’s political mentor, former U.S. Sen. Connie Mack, resigned Thursday as Crist’s campaign chairman in his race for the U.S. Senate.
Mack wrote a terse, two-paragraph letter to his one-time protege that said Crist was wrong to veto a bill (SB 6) that would have made it easier to fire teachers and tie their pay to student test scores.
“As you know, I strongly disagree with your veto,” Mack wrote his fellow Republican. “Your veto I believe undermines our education system in Florida and the principles for which I have always stood.”
Mack went on to say that Crist’s decision to veto the bill was “unsupportable and wrong.”
“As you can understand, I can no longer serve as chairman for your campaign for the United States Senate,” Mack wrote.
A source for an Orlando Fox affiliate says that Crist will announce his party abandonment today:
Thursday, Governor Crist vetoed the controversial teacher merit pay bill, breaking with conservative ranks. Then the head of the Republican U.S. Senate Re-election Committee issued a warning to Crist telling him his career is over if he tries to run outside the GOP.
Dr. Foglesong said, “A person I know in the Charlie Crist campaign has told me Charlie Crist would veto the merit pay bill, and he did. Further, he said he would announce tomorrow, that’s Friday, that he would run as an independent.”
Fox 35’s Tracy Jacim asked, “Where is this supposed to happen?” Dr. Foglesong said, “South Florida.” Jacim asks, “Miami?” Foglesong said, “Yes.” Jacim asks, “How reliable is this source?” Foglesong replied, “I trust the source.”
Fox 35 contacted the Crist campaign staff by e-mail, and they would neither confirm nor deny this claim, and expressed surprise we were asking.
Florida law puts a deadline on when a candidate can announce for a Senate bid, and my understanding is that the deadline was in about two weeks. Ergo, it was “now or never” for Gov. Oompa Loompa to jump ship. But if Crist thinks the teachers union who is trumpeting his praises today will rally behind him as an independent instead of backing Democrat Kendrick Meek, then the tanning bed has fried his gourd more than I thought.
In my view (and only time will tell if this holds true), Crist is basically another Arlen Specter: a RINO who thought it would be good for his own ambitions and career to jump ship, only to find out that the ship he jumped onto…was the Titanic.
Obama wagging his finger, scolding Candian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the nuke timewaster:
Obama assuming the position we’re accustomed to seeing him assume, this time with Hu Jintao of China:
I should cut him some slack, though. After all, I have to kiss up to my boss who signs my paychecks that keep my stuff paid for, so doesn’t it make sense that B.O. prostrate himself before the leader of the country whose money is keeping us afloat? For those of you on the left, the prior sentence was sarcasm.
Dick Morris is right: Obowdown simply hates the country that elected him.
Details here. Why is this newsworthy/blogworthy?
Because everything Cornyn touches turns to crap, that’s why. A “reverse Midas touch”, if you will.
Last year, Cornyn endorsed Gov. Charlie Crist in the FL Senate GOP primary, over Marco Rubio. Since then, Crist has been a dead man tanning walking, seeing his 30% lead turn go 60% the other direction.
Cornyn also endorsed Arlen Specter in the PA Senate GOP primary, over Pat Toomey. How did Specter repay him? By voting for Porkulus, then switching parties. He since proved to be one of the crucial votes in getting ObamaCare enacted. As it turns out, Toomey may very well beat Specter in November anyway, if current polls’ trends hold firm.
Cornyn also pulled out an IN retread, Dan Coats, to run for Evan Bayh’s seat. Coats was such a lousy proponent of the Second Amendment that the NRA has promised to endorse Democrat Brad Ellsworth should Coats win the GOP primary. This should be a guaranteed GOP pickup, but Cornyn and his boy could screw that up.
In other words, Cornyn is an establishment Republican. It is because of establishment Republicans that we find ourselves with a socialist Congress and president. The Tea Party movement and its accompanying popularity are a repudiation of establishment Republicans, not a return to them! Conservatives will do quite well this November, so long as establishment Republicans stay the Hades out of the way!
New Hampshire Democrats are engaged in a statewide search for liberal activists willing to attend so-called tea parties on Thursday and carry signs expressing racist or fringe sentiments, a Democratic source with knowledge of the effort tells NowHampshire.com.
According to the source, who sought anonymity for fear of reprisals, the Dems’ last minute scramble reflects a growing obsession among party leaders that they need to discredit the tea party movement soon or it will overwhelm them come the November election.
Former Democratic State Party Chairman Kathy Sullivan is heading up the search, the source said. Sullivan has been calling and e-mailing liberal activists trying to get them to attend tea parties in different parts of the state and hold signs denying the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and make racially disparaging comments to reporters.
“This is Kathy’s [Sullivan] project,” the source told NowHampshire.com. “She is absolutely obsessed with painting the tea party people as racists.”
Exit question: If Tea Partiers are actually, really mouthbreathing bigots toting racist signs and stuff, then why, pray tell, would the left need to manufacture racist tea Partiers…hmmmmm? I mean, the Tea Parties should be chock full to the brim of racists, right? Yet the Dems need to send some more?
When deep blue NJ elected Republican Chris Christie over incumbent Democrat (and BFF of B.O.) Jon Corzine, many wondered if he would stick to his conservative principles in cleaning up NJ’s bloated and overtaxing government.
…Budgets are serious business, but it’s been a long time since anyone in New Jersey has been serious about the budget. This year, gross mismanagement and accumulated fictions have left state taxpayers a $10.7 billion gap on a total state budget of $29.3 billion. Mr. Christie’s answer is simple: “a smaller government that lives within its means.”
However quaint that may sound, when you have to cut nearly $11 billion in state spending to get there, you are going to get a lot of yelling and screaming. Most comes from the New Jersey Education Association, hollering that “the children” will be hurt by Mr. Christie’s proposals for teachers to accept a one-year wage freeze and begin contributing something toward their health plans. What makes the battle interesting is the way Mr. Christie is throwing the old chestnuts back at his critics.
Here are a few examples, culled from his budget address, public meetings and radio appearances:
The children will be the ones to suffer from your education cuts. “The real question is, who’s for the kids, and who’s for their raises? This isn’t about the kids. Let’s dispense with that portion of the argument. Don’t let them tell you that ever again while they are reaching into your pockets.”
Your policies favor the rich. “We have the worst unemployment in the region and the highest taxes in America, and that’s no coincidence.”
Why not renew the ‘millionaire’s tax’? “The top 1% of taxpayers in New Jersey pay 40% of the income tax. In addition, we’ve got a situation where that tax applies to small businesses. I’m simply not going to put my foot on the back of the neck of small business while I want them to try to grow jobs by giving more revenue to New Jersey.”
Budget cuts are unfair. “The special interests have already begun to scream their favorite word—which, coincidentally, is my 9-year-old son’s favorite word when we are making him do something he knows is right but does not want to do—’unfair.’ . . . One state retiree, 49 years old, paid, over the course of his entire career, a total of $124,000 towards his retirement pension and health benefits. What will we pay him? $3.3 million in pension payments over his life, and nearly $500,000 for health care benefits—a total of $3.8 million on a $120,000 investment. Is that fair?”
State budget cuts only shift the pain to our towns. “[L]et’s remember this, in 2009 the private sector in New Jersey lost 121,000 jobs. In 2009, municipalities and school boards added 11,300 jobs. Now that’s just outrageous. And they’re going to have to start to lay some people off, not continue to hire at the pace they hired in 2009 in the middle of a recession.”
Isn’t your talk of ‘stopping the tax madness’ just another ‘Read My Lips’ promise? “[Mine is] much better than ‘Read my lips.’ I’m sorry, it’s just much better. Much stronger. . . . It’s gonna be how my governorship will rise or fall. I’m not signing a tax increase.”
In some ways, Mr. Christie can speak bluntly precisely because the state is such a mess. Indeed, that’s one reason he won election in a blue state. The challenge remains daunting: No governor has yet succeeded in turning around a state as overtaxed and overspent as New Jersey. Indiana under Gov. Mitch Daniels probably comes closest, but Indiana was not nearly as bad as New Jersey.
If he is to survive the headlines about budget cuts and pull New Jersey back to prosperity, Mr. Christie knows he needs to put the hard choices before the state’s citizens, and to speak to them as adults. He’s doing just that. One reporter for the Newark Star-Ledger summed up Mr. Christie’s rhetoric this way: “[F]inally we have a governor who is as teed off as the rest of us at how government spending and taxes have skyrocketed over the past decade.”
It’s far too early to declare Mr. Christie’s Jersey-style Reaganism a success. But it’s the one reality show truly worth watching.
I abso-freakin’-lutely love it! He takes leftist talking points, and blasts each one individually. Even throws in a little snark with analogies to a petulant 9-yr-old. I luvs me some snark! 😆
When I went into the treasurer’s off in the first two weeks of my term, there was no happy meetings. They presented me with 378 possible freezes and lapses to be able to balance the budget. I accepted 375 of them.
There is a great deal of discussion about me doing that by executive action. Every day that went by was a day where money was going out the door such that the $6 billion pool was getting less and less. So something needed to be done.
People did not send me here to talk, the people sent me here to do. So we took the executive action we did to stop the bleeding.
You know, at some point there has to be parity. There has to be parity between what is happening in the real world, and what is happening in the public sector world. The money does not grow on trees outside this building or outside your municipal building. It comes from the hard working people of our communities who are suffering and are hurting right now.
Oblamer could take notes here. While OblameOthers and his ilk bellyache about how they inherited a messed-up economy, Christie did inherit a Dem-caused economic disaster in Joisy…yet he’s decided that taking action is better than blameshifting. What a novel concept, huh?
He’s fighting with the state teachers union, which makes me like him even more. He’s being honest with the citizens of NJ. In short: Gov. Christie is da man!
Chris Matthews just called to ask how my leg is doing.
Gimme a friggin’ break. No mas, Barry, no mas. Observe:
Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.
Um…I “like it”, and normal America does, too. We’re kinda funny that way.
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that the guy is an anti-American leftard or anything? Actually, Dick Morris happens to have come to the same conclusion, too:
Barack Obama might be, might be the first anti-American President we’ve ever had.
