Chris Christie's guy: "I have no interest in paying for your health care. I'd hate to see you get cancer but that's your problem, not mine."

For months I've done everything I could to open the eyes of voters-- especially Democratic voters-- who allow New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to bamboozle them into believing he's a charismatic, Just Like You moderate. Your kind of guy!

In reality, Gov. It's My Photo Op and I'll Verbally Abuse You If I Want To is a self-serving hypocrite. Let's expose him for what he is:

Last night Rachel Maddow zeroed right and did a little exposing of her own. This isn't very long, and is well worth a look:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Rachel Maddow:

Steve Lonegan... has now become the Republican party's nominee for the United States Senate. The real one.

And of course, Democratic groups are gorging on the buffet that is Steve Lonegan's history of public statements. The group American Bridge has been circulating a reel that is essentially Steve Lonegan's greatest hits, circulating for its entertainment value, for its fundraising value, presumably, but also for nationwide Republican branding value. Because he's like Christine O'Donnell minus the witch! It is amazing that this is the guy who the Republican party has nominated for the United States Senate.

Lonegan:

"People are going to say, well doesn't this mean a tax increase for the poor? And the answer is yes, it does."

"I have no interest in paying for your health care. I'd hate to see you get cancer. But that's your problem, not mine."

"... Medicare and Medicaid... both of these programs are destined for destruction for the next generation, and I think they should be done away with and privatized. That's what I think."

Rachel:

So the way acutely image-conscious governor Chris Christie had to spend his afternoon was cozying up to that guy, talking about what a great Republican he'd be in the U.S. Senate and how much he supports him and hopes he wins!

chris christie policy positions ed show

Ed Schultz, thank you. I've spent post after post trying to expose Chris Christie for what he is:

Now Big Eddie is using his voice and getting the word out on national TV. This is why I am very happy that The Ed Show is coming back to weekdays:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Ed Schultz:

Liberals, Democrats, you need to watch out for this guy right here.

He's like that big old fullback that is going to come right on up the middle and give you head fake and cut on off to the right every time. I guarantee you, he's going to do it.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the king of hoodwinking right now. He's the rising star of the Republican party.

Believe it or not, he's got some Democrats up there in the stand ready to change their jerseys. What the hell for?

People have been talking about Christie and the presidential run since the day he went into the governor's office. Finally, Christie is starting to show his playbook a little bit.

So tonight we are going to expose the real Chris Christie, the media darling of New York City, the media darling of the mainstream media: "He has done nothing wrong. He's really a moderate."

No. He's a wolf in sheep's clothing.

For reasons unknown to The Ed Show, some Democrats think that Christie is a big bipartisan hero.

You know what this guy has done? He walked with the President of the United States. He appeared with the president after Hurricane Sandy. What governor wouldn't do that?

He accepted federal disaster relief, that's the right thing to do as governor, along with every other Republican governor whose state has ever been hit by a hurricane. This makes him bipartisan?

A photo-op does not make Chris Christie bipartisan. Accepting disaster relief, which was the right thing to do, does not make Chris Christie bipartisan.

Don't let him fool you. Christie is as bad as the rest of these radical governors. He's no different than the rest of these radicals governors across this country who are trashing jobs and trashing programs to help the downtrodden in this country, who's attacking education.

In order to understand who Christie really is, it's important to remember. Let's remember, where did this guy come from?

Well, Chris Christie is a disciple of George W. Bush.

Full disclosure tonight, I'm going to play the race card, okay? So don't waste any breath or time or effort and say Ed Schultz is playing the race card . Yes I am because race is important. It is a very important topic. It is huge to this country if we're going to move forward we have to have these conversations, so I'm going to play the race card:

If the President of the United States acted the way this man acts in a crowd and acts the way he treats people, I bet that they would be calling President Obama an angry black man.

They would be saying that, well, President Obama's not acting presidential.

Do you think Chris Christie is acting presidential? Do you really think that this guy has the demeanor? He has the political moxy, I'll give him that. But does he have the demeanor? Does he have a "fly off the handle temper," the guy that you want to answer that 3:00 a.m. call?

Is he good to workers? No. Is he good to seniors? No. Is he a phony politician? Yes.

VIDEO- Chris Christie: I don't know the cost for the special election and I don't care

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

chris christie me me me

Watch more Elections videos on Frequency

Via.

Via.

There he is, Gov. All About Me, New Jersey's very own Chris Christie:

"I don't know what the cost is and I, quite frankly, don't care. I don't think you can put a price tag on what it's worth to have an elected person in the United States Senate and I will do whatever I need to do to make sure those costs are covered because all the people of the state of New Jersey will benefit from it and we're not going to be penny-wise and pound-foolish around here."

Memo to Chris: Some people do care, especially when you're holding a special election only three weeks before you're up for your own re-election. ABC:

The decision to hold an election in October comes with a price tag approaching $25 million because every statewide election in New Jersey costs more than $12 million to execute, and the two parties will hold primaries before the election.

He must think his state has money to burn after that silly little Sandy storm.

And yet even Democrats feel some kind of misguided affection for this mean-spirited, not in the least bit liberal, very self-serving, very conservative loudmouth: WTF is wrong with these people? “Major Democratic donors flock to Chris Christie.” Please read that post if for nothing else than why he will never become a Dem (which for some unfathomable reason some on the gullible left believe is his destiny), and what he really stands for.

WTF is wrong with these people? "Major Democratic donors flock to Chris Christie"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

shoot self in foot 2

Dear Dems:

Stop shooting yourselves in the foot.

Love, an extremely frustrated Laffy

I don't know how to make this any clearer:

Playing arcade games with President Obama, snickering as he barks bluntly (read: disrespectfully and rudely) to reporters and women who question him, and approving of his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy are not reason enough for Democrats to give him money. Why? Here's why:

  • Chris Christie Vetoed Same-Sex Marriage
  • Chris Christie Is No Friend to Workers
  • Chris Christie Doesn’t Believe in Universal Pre-K
  • Chris Christie Misuses State Funds
  • Chris Christie Vetoed a Hike in the Minimum Wage
  • Chris Christie Vetoed Equal Pay Legislation
  • Chris Christie Targeted Poor Families in His Budget
  • Chris Christie Cut Funding to Family Planning Organizations
  • Chris Christie Is Proudly Anti-Choice

He also vetoed early voting, which means he has nothing against voter suppression.

Forethought, people, forethought. Think! Is this someone you'd want gaining more power?

And then there's all that boasting about Christie accomplishing something that is required by the state. He HAD to balance the budget. Please follow the links above for more on his record. Please.

Because after reading this article at the Newark Star-Ledger, you're going to want to share them with a lot of rich, politically connected Democrats:

Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.

The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley. [...]

Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University, said much of Christie’s Democratic support stems from a recent fundraiser in California with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. If those West Coast donors knew more about Christie’s conservative record inside the Statehouse — vetoing a same-sex marriage bill and minimum-wage increase, for example — they might not be so eager to open their wallets, she said.

What does it take? What is wrong with these people? Why would any Democrat want Christie in office? Good f'ing grief!

Again, Chris Christie is all about Chris Christie. Say it with me. Once and for all, understand who this guy is.

WTF Moment: Sen. James Inhofe to #Newtown families: Gun debate has nothing to do with you.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

wtf moment

Yesterday, President Obama was in Connecticut speaking on common-sense measures to reduce gun violence:

“What’s more important to you, our children or an A grade from the gun lobby?”

“Shouldn’t we make it HARDER, not easier for domestic abusers to get their hands on a gun?”

“If you believe those killed by guns deserve a vote.. Stand up. Stand up.”

All great points. He also quoted Newtown victim, six-year-old Dylan Hockley‘s mom, Nicole:

Every night I beg for him to come to me in my dreams so that I can see him again. And during the day, I just focus on what I need to do to honor him and make change.” Now if Nicole can summon the courage to do that, how can the rest of us do any less?

Now wouldn't you think Nicole Hockley and others who were directly affected by the Sandy Hook massacre (or any other mass shooting, for that matter) might be relevant to the gun debate we're having in this country? After all, they are voluntarily and passionately lobbying Congress members to expand background checks, get tougher on gun trafficking and increase school safety.

Which brings me to Senator James Inhofe who is one of the 14 senators below who have threatened to block gun safety legislation:

gop senators filibuster gun laws 2

Now Inhofe is revealing exactly how delusional and cold-hearted he really is. Via HuffPo:

"See, I think it's so unfair of the administration to hurt these families, to make them think this has something to do with them when, in fact, it doesn't," Inhofe said.

When it was suggested that the families of Newtown victims actually believe the gun debate pertains to them, Inhofe said, "Well, that's because they've been told that by the president."

Yes, President Obama made them do it. They are clearly incapable of thinking for themselves, of feeling so much pain that they are driven to act on behalf of their slain loved ones, of drawing obvious conclusions, and taking action on behalf of their murdered family members in order to help prevent this from happening again.

blame obama

Think Progress:

The Oklahoma senator has an A+ rating from the NRA and Gun Owners of America. He has taken at least $19,800 from the former since 1998.

If I go on, I won't be able stop at simply referring to Inhofe as an insensitive, gun-sucking, self-serving, cowardly prick. I'll stop now.

Bobby Jindal believes slavery was just a “choice”

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

gop revisionist history slaves lies

According to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, equal opportunity is so important that when it comes to their children's education, parents need a choice! Just like slaves did back in the day! Because, see, slavery was a choice. Umwhat?

Crazy Crawfish:

[U]nder Jindal’s guidance, Louisiana is encouraging voucher schools to open up and teach that slavery was just a choice, and not an entirely bad one.

A few slave holders were undeniably cruel. Examples of slaves beaten to death were not common, neither were they unknown. The majority of slave holders treated their slaves well.”United States History for Christian Schools, 2nd ed., Bob Jones University Press

This is just one of the “facts” being taught in voucher schools supported by taxes paid by everyone. Jindal seems to believe the greater sin is to curtail choice, than it is to allow the promotion of the idea that slavery wasn’t really that big of a deal, that if not for the actions of a few slave holders that beat and mistreated their slaves, slavery was generally a good thing.

Jindal’s voucher school supporters believe that owning people, another ace of people, was actually much ado about nothing. Sure, many slaves were raped, tortured, murdered and forced to work under in the burning sun every day until they died, their children sold and traded like pieces of furniture, and adults bred like animals to produce good livestock to be enslaved or sold to others. . .  but for the most part it was a good deal and if not for a few miscreants that mistreated their slaves it might well be a great idea to employ today.

Poor slavery! Always getting dissed as if it were a bad thing! What's a parent to do?

Easy peasy! Just send the kiddies to places that teach otherwise and tell everyone else to stop messing with all those nice, wholesome, private voucher schools that you choose to choose. Public school with those icky unionized teachers who stick to-- ew!-- truth and accuracy are clearly inferior to the fine educators at the let-us-count-the-ways more desirable private institutions.

So make sure our young 'uns learn from the best (and by best he means unregulated). Tell them they should be proud of our history of humans owning other humans! Life was so much better back then! After all, slaves were only beaten and raped once in awhile, and being separated from their families and moved around like chess pieces couldn't have been all that bad. Hey, they got room and board, didn't they?

And don't get me started on their freedom to teach how swell the KKK is.

How libertyish and patriotic of them to allow kids to be pro-choice haters.

Please read the entire piece here.

And while you're at it, check out my teen pal Zack Kopplin's relentless efforts to fight creationism lessons in schools. He's been making a name for himself for awhile now, trying to get America to just say NO to creationist vouchers.  He'll be appearing on Real Time with Bill Maher next Friday.

Two fifth-graders conspired to murder a "really annoying" girl; a knife, semiautomatic gun found in backpack

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

what is happening

Honestly, it's getting harder and harder to know if these horrifying stories are new or updates of recent ones. There are so many, it's as if a mushroom cloud-sized explosion of gun scares and/or massacres has occurred, or maybe we're just seeing more reported. Either way, it's scary as hell, and insanely unhealthy both mentally and of course, physically.

My jaw is dislocated from all the dropping. I'm in tears. I'm enraged. I'm appalled. I feel helpless. I'm confused. I'm determined. I'm re-energized. Why do gun zealots not see what most of America sees? Why is common sense gun safety legislation such a threat? (rhetorical)

A slippery slope, the gun huggers call it, because next thing you know, Big Guvmint will take ALL their guns! What about the slippery slope we are now experiencing, right now, right this minute? The one that leads to more mass murders, more senseless deaths, more children dying. What about that slippery slope?

The latest incident occurred in the state of Washington where two fifth graders may face charges after school authorities found a knife and a gun in a student's backpack.

The student who owned the backpack is ten years old.

Ten years old.

L.A. Times:

School authorities said two fifth-grade boys planned to use the weapons to lure another student outside the school and kill her "because she was really annoying."

That's right, two boys (the other was eleven years old) wanted to murder a classmate because she was, in their opinion, annoying. They also targeted six others.

And to make matters even worse, they promised to pay $80 to a student if he promised not to tell anyone about their plot.

Had a fourth-grader not told a teacher he had seen the 11-year-old with a knife, who knows what might have happened?

Here's what was found in the backpack: The knife, which had a 3¼-inch blade, a .45-caliber Remington 1911 semiautomatic handgun, and an ammunition clip.

A semiautomatic handgun.

Here's what the 11-year-old had to say:

"I was going to kill her with the knife and [the other boy] was supposed to use the gun to keep anyone from trying to stop me or mess up our plan."

What were their parents teaching these kids? Why were weapons like these even accessible to them? Why did they think murdering someone was the answer? Why weren't they taught that words should be used to solve personal problems, not violence?

The older boy said he had been friends with the girl for several months "but that he hated her now." He said the girl "had recently become rude and would pick on him."

The obvious solution: End her young life.

Thankfully, the school had been promoting a program that encouraged students to report anything suspicious, which is exactly what happened. Thankfully, a child made the decision to step forward and report the suspicious thing.

And thankfully, School Supt. Mike Cashion said this when asked about arming teachers:

"I told them [the legislature] I can't imagine a teacher taking a gun out, leveling it at a fifth-grader and killing them," he said. "It's the antithesis of what we are."

If only murder and gun adoration were the antithesis of what way too many of us are.
