“ERRBODY IN … FOR THE WIN!”
Chris Christie – the fiscally liberal, scandal-scarred governor of New Jersey and establishment GOP choice for president – received a standing ovation at a so-called “conservatives” gathering in Maryland this week.
“We don’t get to govern if we don’t win,” Christie told the crowd at the so-called Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “Let’s come out of this conference resolved to win elections again.”
Oh … and how is that GOP “governance” of the U.S. House of Representatives working out?
Yeah … not so well.
Christie – one of eight “Republican” governors to embrace U.S. President Barack Obama’s Medicaid expansion plans – offered up plenty of rhetorical red meat for his impressionable audience, at one point lecturing them on the “cold, hard hand of government.” Of course he then proceeded to warmly embrace Obama’s global interventionist foreign policy, saying America could not permit “other countries to run us over all over the world.”
Just what we need … another “War God.”
This website has taken a dim view of Christie – and that was before his big George Washington Bridge scandal broke earlier this year (the New Jersey governor is facing federal and state investigations over that controversy, by the way).
“Christie is a fatter version of Mitt Romney, a younger version of John McCain and a straighter version of Lindsey Graham – which means he’s no friend of the free market, your liberties or your tax dollars,” we wrote earlier this year.
