Poor little Chris Christie. Some of his most loyal following, the entire Morning Schmoe set at 30 Rock across the water in NYC, has finally given up and given in ... they can't support your callous treatment of the Sandy Hook families looking for common sense gun reform in the wake of their losses.
And of his declaration to veto any gun reform that comes across his desk.
A clear smarmy, sanz conscience Dicque Move that will haunt you if you do indeed attempt to run (or lope) for president in 2016, Christie.
For shame. If you have any. Footage courtesy New Jersey dot com.
Already in full possession of a well-earned 'bully' label, Chris has truly put himself past the pale this time. He refused to meet with the families of the shooting tragedy in neighboring Connecticut, saying he'd already heard their arguments.
They didn't move him. He then defended his decision to snub them. Which was almost more heinous than the refusal. He feels "extraordinary sympathy" … but will still not give the Connecticut families five minutes of his valuable gubernatorial time.
Here's how the Starbucks and Scarborough Round Table of Morning Jesters reacted - so imagine how offended the rest of us are!
Christie, no doubt you are going to get plenty of Progressive, Liberal, Gun Reform, Mom and Dem in General blowback on this one. Allow me to add my ten cents.
Screw you and the very unlucky horse you rode in on, there is no excuse for that arrogant, hubris-filled and childish refusal to even deign to speak with the victims of such a nearby tragedy ... you have never disappointed when it comes to making scum decisions to further your own ends.
May this be one of your largest regrets, and there will be more than a few, Governor Christie. There will be far more than just a few.
The Schmoe table took it up at the top of their second hour as well, this time with the superb Jon Meacham to add his fine historic opinions on gun safety and the absurdity of the availability of magazine clips; and Reverand Al Sharpton was on hand to be mystified by Christie's hypocrisy and Bully Boy behavior.
A colleague at Free Range Talk, MontanaHome, summed it up poifectly: "How about that wretched-sonofabitch-sorry-excuse-for-a-human-being Christie. Anybody catch his comments yesterday re: Sandy Hook?"
