Just end the charade, Governor. It’s time to switch Parties and primary Hillary in 2016.
Forget the ill-timed “bromance” photo opp with Obama. It did Romney no favors, but it was not the reason he lost. Chris Christie is bad for the Republican Party and bad for America. Why? Like every other “RINO” (Republican in Name Only), he’s more than willing to demonize his own Party by adopting and advancing the Far Left’s false premises and straw man arguments. Need an example?
During the debate over Hurricane Sandy relief, he chose to criticize his GOP House counterparts who were simply looking out for taxpayers by advocating for a “clean bill” rather than blasting the opportunistic Democrats who were trying to insert unrelated “pork”. This was not only disgraceful but completely unnecessary. Shortly thereafter, he made the bizarre proclamation that he agreed with Andrew Cuomo (Moonbat-NY) “98% of the time”. This was a clear case of a Blue State Republican pandering to Democrats, but if his assertion is even close to being true, Christie is neither a Republican nor a “moderate Dem”. Now, reports are surfacing that top Democratic donors, including billionaire troll George Soros, are filling his campaign coffers.
Follow the money, folks. Clearly, progressives like Soros see value in having “R’s” promote their agenda. Some do so unwittingly. Others? Let’s just say that the jury is still out on that one. Intentions notwithstanding, a case could be made that self-interested “enablers” like Chris Christie and John McCain are more dangerous than the socialists who want to “fundamentally transform America”. Hopefully, the RNC, Karl Rove and others who have historically supported “the most electable candidate” will take note. Not only does the “Democrat-lite” approach virtually guarantee defeat in Presidential elections (e.g. McCain, Romney), but it also makes Congressional and US Senate victories far less likely. The progressive Left is already extremely well-armed…we don’t need to provide them with more ammunition by validating their talking points.
We need a change in mind set. We must reject false premises…regardless of their source. It’s time for GOP primary voters to weed out the “RINOs” and elect people who stand for something other than their own electability or job security. The late Andrew Breitbart frequently exposed “Big Government”, “Big Education”, “Big Hollywood” and “Big Media” as the main drivers of false liberal premises. I think we can now add “Big Governors” to his list.
