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.

Chris Christie "just another hack... is kaput, bye-bye and done for... will not run for president in 2016."

good bye smaller

Today Chris Christie announced the appointment of Jeffrey S. Chiesa, the state’s attorney general, to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the death of Frank R. Lautenberg. (Per Think Progress, he supports gun buyback programs and opposes the death penalty.)

Politico emailed this alert:

"I said on Monday I was going to select the person I thought was going to be the best person to represent New Jersey between now and Oct. 13," Christie told reporters. "During the last few days as I've gotten to deliberate on this decision, it became clear to me that Attorney General Chiesa would be the best person to represent the people of New Jersey in the United States Senate."

Chiesa's name had not been among those circulated in the early short-lists mentioned by Christie insiders.

Christie announced the selection at a news conference in Trenton, shortly before he was set to leave for a GOP donor retreat in Utah with Mitt Romney, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

To any Democrats out there who still believe Christie is a Dem in GOP clothing, read that bolded part again. I know I keep pushing the same point over and over again, but this misguided admiration for this very Republican big mouth is about as self-destructive as a Democrat can get. I implore you to read my posts that make the point in greater detail.

Recently, New Jersey Governor Me Me Me Chris Christie said, “I don’t know the cost for the special election and I don’t care.” He sure doesn’t.

One GOP official said, “I think this ends his 2016 chances. It’s year after year with this guy.”

And then Brent Budowsky wrote a blog for The Hill and said this:

The biggest losers are New Jersey taxpayers, who will foot the bill for the absurd and unnecessary special election; and New Jersey schoolchildren, who could have used the money for education that Christie is wasting on the special election.

The mega-loser is the Christie brand, which is kaput, bye-bye and done for. Christie is no longer different. He is just another hack looking out for himself. Christie will not run for president in 2016.

bye bye smaller

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

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.

omg wtf

Dear New Jersey voters: Maybe this will finally convince you that Chris Christie is not your friend

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

chris christie record conservative

I don't know how many times or ways I can stress this, but here's what I've posted so far:

Added: Christie also brags about accomplishing something that is required by the state. He HAD to balance the budget. Please follow the links above for more on his record.

But he's headed for a landslide, and I still get tweets from fellow Democrats singing his praises. What part of these posts don't people understand? What part of his insolence and disrespect for anyone who dares to challenge him don't they get? What part of his arrogance and conservatism is difficult to process? What part of his record on the issues is it tough to grasp?

Maybe this article from The Newark Star Ledger will help:

Gov. Chris Christie today vetoed a bill that would allow early voting at polling places, prompting Democrats to brand it a politically motivated effort to suppress the vote months after Hurricane Sandy exposed vulnerabilities in the state elections system.

The Republican governor called a proposal to let voters cast ballots at designated polling places during a 15-day period before Election Day "hasty, counterproductive and less reliable" than the current system.

Chris Christie is stifling the vote. Chris Christie is silencing voices. Chris Christie is preventing people from casting ballots.

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

Please read the rest here.

Dear Dems, you can stop praising Chris Christie now. Seriously.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

just stop

Please take another look at why Chris Christie really is, and never has been, the “moderate” people say he is: Enough about what a great Democrat Chris Christie would make, okay? and VIDEO: Chris Christie not conservative? Bull pucky. Check out his record and Think for yourself. Ask questions. Do your homework.

His approvals are through the roof, and Democrats inexplicably continue to praise him because he occasionally does or says the right thing. Key word: Occasionally. Make that rarely. This baffles me.

Here's one of the wrong things he's doing:

(CNN) – A ban on so-called "gay conversion therapy" that's being considered by New Jersey lawmakers doesn't yet have the approval of the state's Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who said he hasn't made up his mind whether he would sign the ban into law.

Seriously? He has to think about this one?

Wait, it gets worse:

The paper reported Christie saying he never reads bills before they hit his desk for approval.

Seriously? He doesn't bother to read bills before approving or vetoing? He's already vetoed a marriage equality bill that he apparently didn't read.

On Wednesday, Christie reaffirmed his personal opposition to same-sex marriage.

Has he been talking to Marcus Bachmann? What next, approving a bloodletting bill?

The bill – which was approved by a state Senate committee on Monday – would make it illegal for a professional counselor to "engage in sexual orientation change efforts with a person under 18." Therapy methods vary, but are often times associated with fundamentalist Christian groups who oppose homosexuality. Shock therapy is used in some instances.

Major medical groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association, oppose therapies that aim to treat homosexuality as a mental disorder.

Seriously? He has to think about a bill that can destroy lives, electrically shock kids into submission, and drive them to suicide? What century is he living in?

Read my lips, Chris: Being gay is not a choice.

Oh, and it doesn't work:

"These practices have no basis in science or medicine and they will now be relegated to the dustbin of quackery."

Seriously? He's pandering to people who reside in a previous century?

Seriously? Democrats actually admire this guy?

seriously with question mark

VIDEO: Gov. Chris Christie says "I hear you, boy, I hear you" to African American man during town hall meeting

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

chris christie record conservative

This exchange took place in a Paterson, New Jersey church during a town hall meeting. Governor Chris Christie said this in response to an African American man who yelled out, "Fix the public schools!"

"You can yell all you want about 'Fix the public schools.' Yeah, I hear you, boy, I hear you."

So was Christie calling the man "Boy," or was he saying, "Boy, I hear you" as in, boy oh boy?

You tell me. My feeling is that, even if he didn't mean to offend, he could have chosen his words more carefully to avoid any misunderstanding. What he did was insensitive and showed a need for more, erm, self-awareness, not exactly his forte.

HuffPo has more, including this:

At the same event, Christie referred to Democratic Speaker Sheila Oliver only by her race and gender, prompting the pastor at the church to demand an apology.

Meanwhile, please take another look at why Chris Christie really is, and never has been, the "moderate" people say he is: Enough about what a great Democrat Chris Christie would make, okay? and VIDEO: Chris Christie not conservative? Bull pucky. Check out his record and Think for yourself. Ask questions. Do your homework.

Boy oh boy, is he not Democrat material.
