Chris Christie Appears on Letterman

Via Sexton, this edited clip of highlights.

Letterman's big question is "What do you think of me?"

Christie is actually funny, for whatever that counts for. I don't know if it counts for all that much.

6 So a brain-dead liberal mouthpiece is arguing with an egomaniacal pseudo-Republican to try and make him, and by extension the electorate whom he does NOT represent, look bad?

Nope.

Like I've said before, Christie brought it to the unions and really pissed them off. For that I respect him. Everything else? DIAF.

My annoying governor tells Dave the reason it took so long to get Sandy aid approved is because "when it happens to them, they rush the money through. But when it happens to others, not so much."

He misses the opportunity to remind viewers that, when Katrina hit we weren't nearly as hosed for money as we are now.

28 As much as I despise Letterman and dislike Christie, it appears that too much of the country gets it's news and voting opinions from Letterman, Stewart, etc.

We need our guys to show up on these TV shows and when they do, they need to stay on message.

'What are your thoughts about abortion'?

'My thoughts don't really matter, but I can tell you that the day a baby is born, he is saddled with 'x thousands of debt' immediately, with x-y amount being due to this President's irresponsible spending'

They made it about the Economy for HWs reelection. It's time to work on turning Obama into Carter so that his legacy is one of 'OMG, what a terrible President and Person'.

Yeah, I got news for you: it had no impact. You know what had impact? Demographics. The women's vote. Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, free birth-control, and Sandra Fluke. The "47%" kerfuffle. GOTV.

Hurricane Sandy didn't mean a fucking thing. Maybe helped Obama win New Jersey and New York by a wider margin. I guarantee you the voters in CO (who had already voted, like 80% of them) didn't give a shit. Or NV. Or WI, or OH, etc.

The interesting thing here is that someone under the age of 60 still watches Letterman.

I was in Manhattan some years ago with a colleague who turned out to be a big Letterman fan. (No accounting for taste.) The guy almost had an orgasm when he saw something that featured prominently in Letterman's show apparently (a deli, IIRC), and wanted to cross the street to it in hopes of seeing that cocksucker.

I thought it was childish celebrity worship, but allowed I would go look if Letterman had just been hit by a truck. But then, I can always use cheering up.

The only way that would work is if this True Believer was able to disguise himself so effectively as a moderate, middle-of-the-road sort of Republican that the constant attacks by the media and Dems (and his own past record) weren't enough to sink him. But an open ultracon socon warrior? He'd STILL lose to whomever the Dems put up. It'd just be another race about abortion and the government safety net, etc. etc. You don't get it: they keep fucking us up the ass on this every single time and yet you still don't get it.

Ironically enough, I still rather think Christie is that guy. I think he'd actually get shit done economically and fiscally in a way that few others would.

Meanwhile nominate Rand Paul and watch us start to lose even more reliably 'red' states.

_______________________

It did have some effect possibly.

Florida was lost by a pretty small margin.

You have a rare hurricane like Sandy hit up NY where a lot of Florida transplants used to live.

Plus--the hurricane watch--which most Floridians watch out of habit --was turned into a Global Warming Informercial--with supporting Republican cast like Bloomberg and Christie spouting global warming talking points.

It was a 24/7 commercial for we need Big Government to protect us from disasters and to rebuild.

107 From George Will. I'd link it, but then someone would have to clean up all those esploded heads:

He is potentially the un-Romney of GOP presidential politics, the candidate who connects viscerally, sometimes maybe too much so, with voters...No one knows how the Republican nominating electorate of 2016 will feel about the idea of selecting a second consecutive Eastern governor from a blue state. "The presidency," Christie says, "is the most personal vote people cast," and he distills into two words the lesson of 2012: "Candidates matter."

He heartily agrees with the axiom that the most "likable" candidate usually wins presidential elections, and he understands that combativeness that might serve a governor might be inappropriate for a president, who people want cloaked in a particular dignity, and who is in everyone's living room every night.

Christie says, "The image of me nationally is a little skewed." What he calls his "yelling and screaming" is very limited and always tactical. He thinks even voters choosing a president "want someone who has that club in his golf bag."

By 2015, the Republican nominating electorate will have forgotten Christie's effusive praise of Obama's post-Sandy solicitousness toward New Jersey. And Christie will be the rambunctious fellow who before Sandy described Obama as "a man walking around in a dark room looking for the light switch of leadership."

Fayhan al-Ghamdi had been accused of killing his daughter Lama, who suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken back, broken ribs, a broken left arm and extensive bruising and burns.

Social workers say she had also been repeatedly raped and burnt.

Fayhan al-Ghamdi admitted using a cane and cables to inflict the injuries after doubting his five-year-old daughter’s virginity, according to the campaign group Women to Drive.

Rather than getting the death penalty or receiving a long sentence for the crime, Fayhan al-Ghamdi served only a few months in jail before a judge ruled the prosecution could only seek ‘blood money’.

So instead of blasting Obama about his reaction to the storm (like the Deomcrats did to Bush with Katrina), he instead pulled out the kneepads a week before the presidential election.

Jeff, back in the primary I was an anyone-but-Romney guy, but I promised to support him if he won the nomination with the caveat that if Romney still lost, all those people who were pushing here were to commmit ritual suicide.I did everything I could to get Romney elected - pollwatching and ORCA - and yet the organization and leadership skills you swore Romney had turned out to be absent, while his vaunted moderation did nothing to win over the mushy middle.

He schools the smarm off Stewart, avoids his carefully laid traps, and does it with a smile. I have mixed feelings on Christie but I think he definitely gets that, which is why he went on even though my gut reaction to Letterman is a big FU.

Then shortly after this same rational, sane person turns out to be our worst nightmare in that they vote against conservatism and fiscal responsibility and other things necessary to stabilize the country OR they become a poster child for the State Media to drag out and beat us over the head with their "reasoned Republican bipartisanship".

I say that when they cross a certain line in how they did or said something or when they said something becomes a litmus test of how they really think.

The best time to observe someone is when they don't think anyone's watching. That's when you find out what their true colors really are.

Christie's are at minimum purple.

Governor Christie's last medical checkup was on January 15, 2013; he had no complaints. He exercised regularly often jogging three miles. His diet was balanced with good intake of roughage and fluids. A complete review of systems was unremarkable. On physical examination, his blood pressure was 90/60 and pulse 60/minute. His build was lean and muscular with no excess body fat. His physical examination was completely normal.

177 HUGE news on the front lines of the war we're fighting... the front lines being the media landscape that's swallowing Conservatives up whole.

Netflix's self-produced series "House of Cards" is an excellent political drama with the great Kevin Spacey and 1st rate production quality. NOT AVAILABLE ON CABLE TV!! Only available on the Internet

And just as interesting is the actual content... We're shown behind the scenes skulduggery the like of which most Libs, with their pie-in-the-sky idiocy, could barely imagine. The bad guys (everyone) are from both parties - but, so far, the policy references are mostly the Liberal agenda.

The horribly corrupt administration in the show is very similar to the Obama admin. The parallels are pretty obvious - even though the prez is white in "House of Cards".

179 I missed a lot of the Christie stuff. What exactly did he do? Did he throw romney under the bus? Christie was so pro romney you have to wonder if maybe he found something out before the election that made him not worry about trying to get as much money for his state as he could. Has anyone asked romney his opinion of and feelings about Christie?

Maybe romney shared with chrisite that he really didn't want the job?

Not sticking up for chrisite but wondering if he would be an automatic winning candidate that you are throwing under the bus without just cause?

I'm still not sure what has caused so many commenters to turn on Will after 40 years of hard work, but a quick look at his recent output finds columns more informative and useful for the cause than most conservative blog posts:

02/02/13 The price of moral grandstanding: The folly of libs' high-minded investing

01/24/13 Sign of overreach: A case that abuses First and Fifth Amendments

01/19/13 The time bomb in Obamacare?

He was in the middle if a libel suit against Kyle, and even though Kyle is dead plans to go through it, because I guess you can sue a dead man? If he wins the family has to pay damages. This is the last thing any widow should have to deal with. It sounds like Jessie will probably win the case, but he should be the bigger man and back off, IMO. Let the poor family heal.

I thought the undertone for the ad was that the girl secretly liked him too, but up to that point the boy didn't have enough courage to make it known.
It's kinda hard to put that much backstory in a 1 minute spot. But you'll notice the girl smiles, and seeing as it is prom, I assume they knew each other prior, because high school.

So yeah, it wasn't inappropriate touching by a stranger kind of thing.

192 >>>141 I think the difference with 2016 is that there will be a good pool of candidates running

In 2012, before debates, even National Review took the "10th Amendment? never heard of it" path and endorsed Romney/Santorum, simultaneously anti-endorsing Rick Perry.

There is no hope for the GOP. Perry may have shit himself in the debates, but on paper he was the only candidate with a solid federalist foundation. His transgressions were that he believed in the 10th a little too much -- allowing that the Texas legislature might take steps out of sync with the nation on immigrants and Tardisil (which was really another "Latinas" issue).

The GOP, and dammit, 90% of SoCons, do not actually believe in State Sovereignty. Sure, when they are in the minority position, it's all about state rights. But on issues where SoCons think they have a national majority? Fuck the 10th! We're imposing a national ban on Internet gambling and pr0n!

194 Ventura is a class act...


It was in 2006 when Ventura and the SEALs happened to be in the same bar, for very different reasons. The SEALs were holding a wake to honor a lost member of their team. Jesse was in town to speak to some new graduates of the SEAL program. During his military career from 1969-75, Ventura was a member of the Navy’s elite Underwater Demolition Team or UDT (the UDT was the precursor to the SEALs) and Jesse is a SEAL reservist. You might expect that sharing the history of membership in an elite military unit would garner a lifetime of mutual respect. Not so with Ventura.

As stated above, the SEALs were in the bar to mourn the loss of team member. They had gathered with the family of Medal of Honor recipient Mike Mansoor when Ventura made it known to many that he did not agree with the war. Kyle claims that he approached the former governor, and asked him to keep it down, informing Jesse that the family of the deceased was also with them.

That’s when Ventura unleashed more of his insensitive comments and Kyle reportedly countered with a one-punch knockdown.

two are dead and Will while still great when he is on is not "on" on some things.

That's not the point. Yeah, as it turned out, Obama's margin was big enough that he almost certainly would still have won even if Christie hadn't cut that de facto campaign commercial for him. But Christie didn't know that at the time. He was willing to take the risk of costing Romney the election in order to help himself politically in his state.

Will is a Nixonian Republican and i am not using that as an epithet, and while he learned that the Reagan wing was correct about the failings of Rockerfellerian model his instincts tack back to moderate. Will is not Noonan, but neither is he the person I look to to stop the $uper$tate.

But the thing I now know about Christie is that he is out for himself, not out for US, and is not a dependable ally.

252 234 SH,

By moving on to football or MMA metaphors?

Look Will is a lot like Coke in glass bottles, hardworking Americans, and a space program focused on getting shit done....

we've moved on as a people and not for the better.

Will could be more effective by using his wonderful ability to use metaphor and obscure data to make the point to a younger audience on several past failures of "new" Obama paradigms.

20 years ago he was one of the guiding lights I just think he is writing for himself and a niche audience these days.

253 The problem with Christie is that he is too emotional.

You could choose to ride him as your candidate like the Hindenburg but in the end he's going to go up in flames-- and he will light his own match.

266 Everything Obama and his pack of retards said about Sandy was a flat out lie.

People were freezing at night, no power, clutching their baseball bats to try and fend off looters. And Obama was using it as campaign fodder in the vein of "FEMA and the gang have reacted flawlessly to this storm". It.was.a.fucking.lie.

And if the truth were to come out, after the second debate, Mittmentum could have doubled.

But that fat fuck ball-less blob of gelatinous goo - that beta male pronating himself before the even more beta-male Obama, making it look like FROTUS had any clue as to what he was doing, gave the media a chance to cover something other than 80 year old women out in the cold.

Probably made no difference.

Hiding the Benghazi fuck up probably made no difference to voters either.

So, if having a fucking president who doesn't care about old people in the street, or his ambassadors getting butt-fucked and then pulled apart like BBQ chicken, doesn't matter, then why talk about then next candidate?

If being a loser is never fatal, and even affords preferred status in America, why even participate in the system?

268 Alex Rodriguez is taking his wildest swing yet in his fight against steroid allegations: The Yankees and MLB are conspiring to push him out of the game.
Sources say the embattled Yankee star is “scared” that bigger forces are at work to try to discredit him and sink his career. Holed up in Miami, Rodriguez has been huddling with an army of lawyers and PR people as the performance-enhancing drug scandal enveloping him intensifies.
“He’s scared, because he thinks this is so unbelievably false, and he’s wondering who could be behind this,” said a source, referring to last week’s Miami New Times report linking A-Rod to an alleged Miami-area performance-enhancing drug scandal. “He thinks something could be going on larger than anyone might think.”
The source added that Rodriguez is wondering if the Yankees or even Major League Baseball are behind the latest controversy.

278 I watched the whole interview last night, and whatever you think of Chris Christie, he reduced Letterman to a pile of Jello and completely commanded the stage, from the moment he sat down. That had to have scared the bejesus out ofthe Democratic strategists. They cannot fathom a Republican with a sense of humor at all, much less one that is actually funnier than Letterman and can disarm a pro like him so effortlessly - without becoming a clown or a joke himself. It's a pretty damn rare quality for a pol. And let me tell you guys, it is one that is sorely, sorely lacking in every other Republican that is even thinking about running in 2016. Christie will wipe the stage with any of them.

I can write formally when I put on my dancing shoes and it is readable after a fashion, but I far prefer my habit of writing like I speak because I am a better speaker for communication. The thing is my rambling style makes me seem overly cryptic and limits my ability to impart knowledge, I suspect Will's decline is in part because he has lost the ability to wade into shallow enough water to connect with a 22 year old working poor casual voter.

another race about abortion and the government safety net, etc. etc. You
don't get it: they keep fucking us up the ass on this every single time
and yet you still don't get it.

Ironically enough, I still
rather think Christie is that guy. I think he'd actually get shit done
economically and fiscally in a way that few others would.

Meanwhile nominate Rand Paul and watch us start to lose even more reliably 'red' states.

And so it begins.
News flash...the last two nominees were democrats in all but name only practically.Ok i personally cant stand John McLame, but Romney was smart articulate non trheatening appealing good looking accomplished competent and would have made a great president by those "middle of the road appealing to and working with both sides standards."Yet still no win.And the drum beat that we cant nominate a conservative cause we will lose doesnt even wait to start till a year has passed.Last two nominees were as far from conservative as you van get bro.Please get a new shtick.Karl Rove used that one to wipe his ass with and its just not believable anymore.

324 Didn't George Will have a wife involved in the Obama campaign or something.

Well, it's all the same party anyway and if she doesn't do the job some other pretend republican or conservative will take it, so why not her?

325 I suspect Will's decline is in part because he has lost the ability to wade into shallow enough water to connect with a 22 year old working poor casual voter.

Meh. That voter won't win us elections. I'll be damned if I'm going to write off the educated voter, just because they trend Democrat. Screw that. If you live like a Republican, I'm going to get you to vote like one.

326 Sorry, I refuse to watch the gap-toothed moron or the tubby from Jersey Shore.

They are both dead to me. I see in one of his regular bouts with insanity (someone needs to level out the meds), George Will was touting Christie as a potential national candidate.

Sorry, Georgie, thanks but no, thanks. Maybe if he had tossed Obama out of the helicopter, but just the butt-kissing wasn't doing it for me.

I have only four words for Christie: "Fluke off, Fat Boy!"

328 325 CJ,

Either we were different as kids or he's different. Point is a lot of us were reachable and we seem to be writing off the working poor. Hell since Obama has established that he thinks we can cut checks for Free Shit Army at no cost why don't we eliminate minimum wage and yank the cessation of aid upon employment and let people get trained "for free?'

I mean we're so decoupled from every recognizable system I've ever tried to study to the point "why not?"

Heh...ah when there was still a life support driven humor stream on SNL...

I think we can go after both the young and the older suburban voter. Don't have to choose. But I think our first target needs to be everyone who Lives like a Republican but Votes like a Democrat.

They tend to be educated and won't be reached by blogs and Fox News.

FYI...remember that NY Times piece about Obama writing off working class whites? I don't think we are losing them. At least not until they fall into the 47% who don't pay federal income taxes.

332 the fact that he's funny counts for a lot. i don't like him but we need someone with charisma. the success of politicians is based mostly on charisma. obama's success, and any success of the democratic party right now, is due to charisma alone.
