Christie gets attacked; GOP defense tactics suck

It’s always funny — no actually, it’s disturbing — to witness the liberal progressive media in action following the typical Alinsky theory of opposition destruction.

Right now, if you were an alien from another planet (as opposed to an alien from another country) you would believe the biggest national catastrophe in America is the closing of lanes on the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey.

The elevation of this episode to catastrophic status has opened an attack avenue by the progressive socialists. Now, according to a CNN report

Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie faced questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used some of that money to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family.

You may remember the “stronger than the storm” commercials. Now liberals are fuming mad about those pesky ads and are gunning for a full-scale investigation.

Yep, forget that phony scandal of the IRS targeting Americans or Operation Fast and Furious. Governor Christie’s performance during and after the October 2012 storm just before the presidential election has been widely praised and is a fundamental illustration of his straight-shooting political brand.

It was his embrace of President Obama that made him a darling to the Left, and earned the scorn of conservatives. But now the governor finds himself in a sort of “no man’s land” where he is being attacked and reinforcements are not coming to the rescue.

According to the CNN report,

In the new investigation, federal auditors will examine New Jersey’s use of $25 million in Sandy relief funds for a marketing campaign to promote tourism at the Jersey Shore, New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone told CNN. In an August letter, Pallone asked the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general to look into how Christie chose to spend the marketing money approved by the department. Pallone, a 27-year veteran of the House and vocal Christie critic, said this is not about politics. “This was money that could have directly been used for Sandy recovery. And, as you know, many of my constituents still haven’t gotten the money that is owed them to rebuild their homes or raise their homes or to help,” he said.

By the way, Rep. Pallone is the same individual who referred to an investigative hearing on the Obamacare website as a “monkey court” – sure, this isn’t political. Democrats in New Jersey and nationally have jumped on the scandal, saying it gives the nation a chance to see what they’ve said for years — that Christie is a bully who governs by fear.

Hmm, methinks if you want to talk about bullying and governing by fear, you might want to consider the New Black Panther voting intimidation case, dismissed by Obama’s Department of Justice or the IRS targeting scandal using a government agency to intimidate Americans from expressing their first amendment right of speech and assembly.

We just found out about Hillary Clinton’s “hit list” http://nypost.com/2014/01/13/hillary-clintons-hit-list-of-democrat-enemies/ and reports from Virginia Representative Frank Wolf that State Department employees who were at Benghazi have been issued non-disclosure agreements and forced to take polygraph tests to preclude them from speaking out — but then again, those are just phony scandals.

Clearly the progressives have no shame, but how do we contend with an adversary that possesses no honor, integrity, or character? As former Marine Jim Reinfinger says, “if you find yourself in a fair fight, it’s all because your tactics suck.”

The GOP continues to believe that progressive socialists are rational people with whom they can find common ground. Progressives are in this for the kill, Republicans are in it for the camaraderie. Sunday on Fox News Reports, their political insiders (Caddell, Schoen, and Leboutiller) articulated the same point, that the GOP has no idea of how to fight back. That’s why we need more former military personnel as representatives, senators, and leaders in the GOP. It’s not just that we know how to fight, we possess the courage and conviction to “move to the sound of the guns” and relentlessly fight until victory is achieved.

And there’s a little something being planned in Washington DC on May 16th called Operation American Spring that progressive socialists should be very concerned about.

What a shame the condition we have let this country become. Yes I say “WE”…but hey, it’s not polite to talk politics or religion. There was a reason they promoted this propaganda statement upon us, and now we see why!

Sadly, so many conservatives have become “purists” that they turn their noses up at Republicans like Christie as RINOs, etc. Maybe when they finish shooting themselves in the foot and we have no elected Republicans left, they’ll realize that the Dems successfully executed a divide and conquer strategy.

Political pragmatism is what has brought us to where we are…

I wont stop fighting, but i truly believe that we have to hit rock bottom before enough people wake up. Sad, but true.

I will no longer vote defense (vote for the political pragmatist). We have gained nothing…only prolonged the inevitable.

Yeah, McCain so totally ROCKED! Bush too, he reduced spending and eliminated agencies.

Oh, no, he increased spending and created new agencies, DHS ring a bell? Oh, and expanded the Dept. of Ed., with the help of uber-liberals like Ted Kennedy. Brilliant strategy. (not)

I agree to an extent…I just hate to see us all sell our souls for victory, and then up with a less than conservative in office, but conversely, had more “purists” stepped up and supported Romney, then the mess we are in wouldn’t be so bad.

If you don’t know who Saul Alinsky is you will not have a full understanding what “progressives” are trying to accomplish.

Maybe it’s time to throw Christie under the ship… oh wait, that ship has sailed. I still can’t tell the difference between establishment Republicans (like Chrisite) and liberal Democrats. They ALL look like socialists to me. What kind of a name is “leelee” anyway?

Time to dump both parties. It wasn’t just one party that got us where we are today.

Christie is not in my state, But I would not vote for him, He attended the state dinner for china, he gave berry the sandy photo op, he gave that horrendous speech at the RNC..
He is no conservative. I will only vote for a conservative, no more holding one’s nose.

And the 8 years of disaster that was Bush/Cheney

It really doesn’t matter who wins in 2016.
If it is a Democrat or Republican, the country loses.

Politifact shows that just about everything Cruz has ever said is a lie. The clown just figured out, this month, that he still holds dual citizenship.

He is the new Charlie Crist. After he is booted from office, we’ll see him become “disillusioned” with the Right, gradually align himself with the left, and finally become a Democrat..and they will love that so much that they will accept him with open arms.

There’s no realistic chance of that happening. But, the fact that there is ANY chance is very telling about the state of the Republican Party. They are getting more and more out of touch with the majority of the country.

It doesn’t even get to that point, as most of the media is all in with Democrats.

During the Presidental campains of 2012, we saw the progressive left, pick off one GOP candidate after another, with one scandal after another. And yet…. Here we go again. I have to scratch my head and wonder why the GOP leadership is so timid. Will they ever grow a pair, and kick some progressive Booty! Don’t they realize that progressive tactics are a form of fear mongering and terrorism. Which means, I guess, that the terrorist have made it to American shores and are attacking from within.

“That’s why we need more former military personnel as representatives, senators, and leaders in the GOP”

Uhm, not that you aren’t great there Mr. West, but that’s not a good tactic either, not with the likes of McCain, Graham and McConnell. Maybe someone should test the water in DC, I’ve heard there is lots of estrogen. Maybe the EPA can check this instead of messing with CO2? Nah, can’t tax it.

Most democrats in government are lawyers (as is supposedly Obama) and they are known for their sly tactics in the courtrooms of America…win, no matter the consequences or the method…end result is what counts…truth can be but should not be a hinderance. GOP has more businessmen in government and, whereas, there are those who fought their way to the top, they also can create and run a business…which govt is not, or at least not run as one would a real business. We do need those who are not able to stand up and call a spade a spade, those… Read more »

Christie deserves everything he is getting.. Having said that- Col West is correct. Our governing GOPers are a bunch of cowards who haven’t the first clue about being in the trenches.

I am personally GLAD the leftists are coming for him with both barrels. The lowest form of life on this planet is a leftists, communists. But there is a scintilla of humanity even with the most vile,evil,disgusting communists. But there is no for a traitor. This sub-human life form knifed Rommey in the back. Judas and Brutus must be soooooooooo proud.

You know why they’re after him? Because being rather liberal he’s got a chance and they don’t want that to happen. So attack while he’s down, just like a pack of wild dogs.

You know the biggest problem? Is about 40% are not registered to vote! And of the 60% who are only 40% actually vote! Don’t quote me on those numbers please but it really is that dismal!
We have become a country so complacent ! Fat couch potatoes!! And will only vote if it affects us! President Bush did nothing for me personally! But he was the better choice for the country!

Mr. West- You are losing credibility if you’re defending the tub O’ lard from New Jersey. Christie is not a republican. He is a democrat that wears and R instead of a D but it really should be a C for communist. Either you are with We the People or you are not. Right now I’m beginning to wonder which side you are on. GOP- either support America for Americans or do not expect the votes or support. A lot of us used to be R, are now either I (independent) or U (undecided).

He is not so much defending Christie as the Republican brand, and encouraging the Republicans to continue to raise the issues that are far more serious in the liberal ranks than this stupid little bridge deal that Christie did hold people accountable for. The Democrat are firing on all cylinders for this minor inconvenience, while Republicans sit back after Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, Hillary’s Hit list and on and on, this is NOT support for Christie.

I agree with that. Thank you for clarifying. I still think Chelsey should pack her bags and be the new ambassador for Libya. I don’t think hillary will throw her only child under the bus like she did with the former embassy workers and contractors.

He is a liberal so you would think the media would shield him. At any rate he deserves no defense nor consideration and to do so only hurts your cause.

No one gets to choose the crap that comes their way, it is how it is handled that matters. Christie, in my estimation, does not champion either party. From where I sit I see he is being looked at with a magnifying glass by the most devious dishonest group of blood thirsty wolves whose integrity is greatly lacking. From what I have seen of him he is way above the opposition. Frankly I cannot understand any one going into that lions den to get mauled.

Is this the same Chris Christie who, just days before the 2012 election, embraced Barack Obama and, for all intents and purposes, endorsed his reelection? Is this the Chris Christie that has joined in the chorus of RINOs slamming Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Tim Scott for daring to champion the righteous demands of the TEA Party patriots out here in fly-over USA?

Oh. That Chris Christie. My heart bleeds for him…..NOT.
