Chris Christie Blames Holdup on Sandy Relief on Boehner, House Republicans

He continues running against Republicans, which I suppose improves his chances for being reelected Governor, but does little to recommend him to me as a national spokesman for limited government.

"There is only one group to blame," Christie said. "The House Majority and John Boehner."

"Last night, the House Majority failed the basic test of leadership and they did so with callous disregard to the people of my state," he said. "It was disappointing and disgusting to watch."

"Shame on you, shame on Congress."

Following his remarks, Christie doubled down on his criticism in a lengthy — and incredibly candid — press conference in which he laid into House Republicans for putting "palace intrigue" ahead of their actual jobs.

...

Asked who he thought was responsible on the holdup over Sandy aid, Christie laid the blame entirely on Boehner.

"It was the Speaker's decision — his alone," Christie said, adding that he tried to reach Boehner four times, but that the Speaker did not take his calls until this morning."

Meanwhile Peter King tells people not to donate to the NRCC or Republicans, and of course half of the "Sandy Spending" is pork for entirely unrelated matters, like Alaskan fisheries. Which is what happens-- when you have an attractively-named spending bill, something people will only vote against with great trepidation, you lard it up with all the spending you couldn't possibly get otherwise.

At this point I've stopped worrying about the epochal financial crisis and simply accepted it, and have begun just looking for the silver lining: Well, they'll finally reap what they've long sown.

Notice it's always those who attempt to get pork stripped out who are charged with "holding things up," even by nominal Republicans. They never lay the blame with those who have stuck unrelated spending items in the bill for holding it up. Those people are "just doing what needs to be done."

16 So, two states that won't vote R who have received billions of relief money already are complaining about Republicans only, even though the bill is a piece of crap. Wait a few days, Chris Christie, something you apparently can't do when it's time to eat. Pass a bill that doesn't contain billions in pork-could you see fit to mention that in your speech?

23 Except for the Prez himself all of politics is local. And Christie can't become Prez unless and until he wins reelection in NJ. Sometimes you have to throw some darts to get reelected. There are plenty of analogous circumstances too. Sometimes you have to lose money to make money. Sometimes you have to lose a few hands to win the really big hands. Sometimes you have to make enemies before you make friends. Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges before you can build a few bridges. Seasoned adult professionals understand all this. Politicians understand this. The Internet's chattering class demographic? Eh, not so much.

24 Also, someone explain to me why one of the wealthiest geographic regions in the world (per capita) should need anyone to pay for any "relief."

The ONLY argument that proponents of these "relief" bills have ever put forward other than "because shut up" is "Well, they can't afford to rebuild on their own!" (which is largely hokum). Well, given the density of lawyers, Wall St. types, and so forth, I can't imagine that the same is true for NYC/NJ.

26 Maybe one of their Senators could have taken time from exploiting Third World girls to be his whores in order to shepherd this through Reid's Senate and keep the pork off it.

Or maybe the other one could get out of his coffin once in a while.

Maybe New York's senior Senator could have been moved if they put a camera in front of the bill. The junior Senator would have to be told what to do, of course.

The Washington GOP aren't my favorite people right now, but I'm pretty sure that's the party this guy ostensibly belongs to, right?

Put me some knowledge, Morons -- is there any apparatus available to the party that would enable them to kick people OUT? Like, if the Tea Partiers are able to gain more seats over time and get a stronger grip on the Party, can we eject people like Christie and Lindsey Graham and McCain (among others) when they prove themselves to no longer represent good, old-fashioned *conservatism*?

When I look across the counter and see another damned food stamper loading up enough 5$ Ben & Jerry's pints to pay half my day's wage, it becomes clear that on the whole, we deserve this.

2. the Scott Browns -- these Republicans vote mostly for personal political expediency and only use the party's brand for recognition and logistical and financial support.

I sympathize in general with the folks of NY/NJ. I spent a few years there working on IT projects and my takeaway was the breathtaking amounts of cynicism that those folks have regarding corruption and pork. Their blase attitude that flyover country exists just to grow food for NYC and to send in Federal taxes to pay for NY/NJ infrastructure was hard to take. Their ignorance about the rest of the country is real--if it is not NY/NJ, it does not matter. I had a chiropractor, which means the guy was a college graduate at the very least, ask me if Oklahoma had paved roads and real houses--not tents and teepees. He was serious.

I have not contributed one dime to Hurricane Sandy relief because the Feds will more than bail them out and make them whole--they will make them better than whole. My tax dollars are enough to give them.

One of the Civil War Generals, I can't remember who, was the commander of a subordinate unit, perhaps a regiment, and quartermaster for the superior formation, perhaps the brigade. As regimental commander he would seek the finest equipment for his own regiment and as quartermaster he would deny his own request because he had to consider the good of the entire brigade.

The Senate and Barky can sign on or see the money dry up. Start with the EPA and college loans.

The credit card payment is coming due and they're still running up the tab.

Honestly, when you know you're going to declare bankrupcy and run out on the bill, why not max it out? Why even bother to cut spending now when it's most certainly too late to ever climb out?

Sort of like when I was a teen - if I was supposed to be home by 11:00 and it was already 12:30, I'd just stay out till 6AM. If you're going to get your ass beat either way, might as well make the most of it.

When you already owe more than you can ever pay and you know you won't everpay, but nobody has cut you off yet because they haven't quite caught onthemselves, why stop spending?

well, it is less a question of ability than rules of engagement. if you are fighting with one hand behind your back and are acting on the assumption that your competition loves the country and the Constitution and you are only having a disagreement over how to do what is best you behave one way.

But I think you build momentum at the state level - BTW we're not doing too badly there - and then those governors will be pressuring the GOP "elite" for some common sense conservatism.

I think almost all of the problem we "trucons" have against the GOP is in action. That is, they say the right things (more or less) on the campaign trail, and then fail to stand up for those things once they're in office.

All I really want is actual adherence to the conservative principles of the party, and a willingness to "be the bad guy" when necessary. If you're the only one who ever flinches, the other guy's favored contest is going to be playing Chicken. Sometimes, you have to be willing to take the crash. Eventually, they'll get the point, and we'll be able to make some progress.

So I don't know that we need to massively remake the party platform or anything like that. We do need to make sure those at the local level live up to their promises and start moving that type of accountability up the chain.

Election board first. It is literally where all power starts. If your elections are fairly adjudicated, then Republicans win on ideas. The GOP lets the DIMs count the votes and they wonder why they lose--especially on recounts of Federal elections. Corrupt election boards let votes be found until the DIM wins. When was the last time a GOP candidate won a national level recount?

For one thing, a whole heck of a lot of people thought Christie was going to be the second coming of Reagan. So... at least he's not alone there.

For another, it's not like we knew that Christie was just using the Republican party so he would have an easier primary. If Christie's fellating TFG just before the election didn't make it clear enough, I think this demonstrates that Christie is reflexively antagonistic toward Republicans.

235 Cantor should step and and tell Christie to kiss his ass. Tell him, your love affair with Obama giving him a fat ass hug right before the election meant the destruction of America as we know it, therefore you and your liberal loving state won't see a dime until you can come up with more than an equal amount of spending cuts to offset it.

242 This site championed Christie and called people names who dared not support him as well. YOU WERE WRONG.

243 Krispy Kreme needs to clean up the "Obama" that remains stuck to his lips. That stuff is a bitch to get off!

244 197 You will never win, not least because you still don't understand who 'we' is.
-
Demographically, "we" are 90% white, and more-than-chance male, working class and rural. (This last because whites have been driven out of their cities, such as Detroit.) Also, heavily gun owners, religious, and relatively socially conservative.

If your conservative party doesn't defend that "us" it's like a general that thinks he can let his army be killed and win because he's a genius.

245 Chris Christie has more in common with us than we thought

He too prefers Barack Obama to Republicans like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan

246 Why doesn't EVERY homeowner who has a damaged home get it paid for by his fellow taxpayers?

I mean, if the folks who got flooded in Sandy are eligible for all kinds of gubmint assistance, why not the family at the end of Goose Creek, Anywhere USA, after the latest thunderstorm? Or the poor sods whose house was crashed into by a drunken driver?

Why are only hurricane and tornado victims reaping the bonanza of Public Aid???

I mean, if you follow the logic, No One should Ever Have To Suffer Any Misfortune. (Except, of course, the poor sods who have to PAY for it all, over and over.)

247 FWIW, A lot of New York Metropolitan residents, republican and democrat agree with Christie. And the republican and democratic representatives were all over the media today, a unified force, complaining bitterly. Most did say that the pork could be eliminated from the bill and have it just be aid to the storm victims.

If you think Christie was pissed, remember, you haven't heard from Andrew Cuomo yet. My guess is that Andrew is angrier than Christie and Christie took the first shot because Cuomo doesn't mince words and for the first discussion of this they wanted something intelligible cause Cuomo was so angry his statement would probably have a few words that wouldn't make sense among the bleeps.

BTW, a hurricane has never, historically, made landfall in Jersey. People blocks in from the water in Staten Island have never seen water up to their second floors. And the people who were hit the worst were middle class.

America is not this mean spirited. In small farming communities people when your house or barn burned down got together and rebuilt your house or barn. Insurance did not cover this. You had to have very expensive flood insurance. Would you, being middle class, spend 8 grand per anum on flood insurance when you know your area has never ever been hit by a flood during any hurricane?
