How Small of Obama on the RNC, ‘It should be a pretty entertaining show’ … As the GOP Governors Beat Obama Up with Barack’s “You Did Not Build It” Comment and Wowed the Crowd
Barack Obama, Lost in smallness yet again, add in some snark and a dash of sarcasm as he commented on the RNC, ‘It should be a pretty entertaining show’. Just how petty could this president get?
Dear Mr. President, it may have been truthfully entertaining; however, it was more enlightening, inspiring and invigorating! Let me inform Barack Obama and the Democrats, don’t look now but the GOP has a young, deep, diverse bench.
The GOP trotted out rock star after rock star governors that took Obama’s failed economic polices apart. Governors Nikki Haley (SC), Scott Walker (WI), John Kasich (OH) to name a few took to the stage and politically beat Obama upside his head with his ridiculous and foolish comment to small business owners that “you did not build it”. Then there was Keynote speaker New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who reminded Obama, “real leaders do not follow polls, real leaders change polls.”
As stated at Hot Air, “a whole gamut of Republican governors did indeed take to the stage to refute your erroneous “top-down” baloney this evening, in the knowledge that a huge, meddlesome bureaucracy that thinks it knows best and taxes success is the real definition of “top-down.” The GOP governors told the success stories of their own states recoveries that were polar opposites of Obama’s failed bottom up, middle out, government dependent nanny state agenda.
Ohio Gov. Kasich like I have never heard hims before, “We need a new partner in Washington. This relationship is just not working”
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker got some of the biggest applause of the night … Wisconsin now a swing state
Nikki Haley’s RNC Speech 8/28/12, “President Obama. with all due respect, don’t tell me my parents did not build their business.”
“We said in South Carolina that if you have to show a picture ID to buy Sudafed, if you have to show a picture ID to set foot on an airplane. Then you should have to show picture ID to protect one of the most valuable, sacred rights in America, the right to vote.”
Governor Chris Christie Speech at Republican National Convention RNC
Transcript can be read HERE.
We need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something.
Believe me, if we can do this in a blue state with a conservative Republican Governor, Washington is out of excuses.
We have this leader for America.
We have a nominee who will tell us the truth and who will lead with conviction. And now he has a running mate who will do the same.
We have Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan, and we must make them our next President and Vice President.
Mitt Romney will tell us the hard truths we need to hear to put us back on the path to growth and create good paying private sector jobs again in America.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to Deliver Key Note Speech at Republican National Convention … Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) to Introduce Mitt Romney
Sarah Palin may not be speaking at this years Republican National Convention, but don’t miss the sure fire, energetic, engaging and never dull stylings of Chris Christie. The NJ Gov. is never at a loss for words, this should be truly inspiring and entertaining.
That is correct, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be providing the Keynote speech at the Republican National Convention. This is a fantastic choice as he is sure to bring down the house. Chris Christie is never at a loss for words and is known for saying exactly what he thinks. A quite refreshing manner as compared to the PC and focus group approved talk that has become common place for politicians today. Look for Christie to bring the crowds at the GOP National Convention to their feet and jazz the even to new highs. This is going to be must see TV. Christie stated, he “ill cite his experience as New Jersey governor in demonstrating that “the American people are ready to confront those problems head-on and endure some sacrifice.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the keynote address that launches the Republican National Convention in two weeks, telling USA TODAY he plans to make an “emphatic” argument on behalf of GOP approaches and shared sacrifice to face the nation’s biggest challenges.
In an interview Monday, Christie said his 20-minute speech will focus more on making the case for electing Mitt Romney than the one against re-electing President Obama. And he promises the words will be his own: He’s already on the fourth draft of the speech, “grinding away on it” over the past few days since Romney asked him to fill the high-profile role.
Florida US Senator Marco Rubio will be the individual tapped to introduce Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
In a showcase role on his party’s biggest stage, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney for his speech to accept the nomination for president on the last night of the Republican National Convention.
It is an introduction aimed at giving Romney a boost from a rising star in a must-win state, but it will almost certainly further enhance Rubio’s standing, too.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Calls Reporter Stupid for Asking An Off Topic Question … “Are You Stupid?” (VIDEO)
“Did I say on topic, are you stupid?” … ”Thank you all very much, and I’m sorry for the idiot over there. Take care.”
During a press conference on Saturday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held a press conference to discuss the problems with a water treatment plant and what this meant for the people of the garden State. He had asked the reporters in advance to keep questions on topic. Of course that did not stop one member of the media to ask the obligatory off topic question. Gov. Christie’s response … “ARE YOU STUPID?”
Reporters were told the governor would only answer questions about a major problem at a water treatment plant, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Yet one reporter proceeded to ask an unrelated question involving the state legislature, as seen in video of the press conference from Monmouth County.
Christie, cutting him off, said: “Did I say on topic? Are you stupid? On topic, on topic. Next question.”
With all due respects to so-called Moderates, no one tires of individuals putting the MSM in their place and keeping on topic to an important issue affecting people. Personally, I am not sure if I would choose Chris Christie as my Vice President; however, if Sarah Palin turned me down for Press Secretary, Gov. Christie would be my next in line. Who wouldn’t love to see daily exchanges between the White House press corps? Or as Barack Obama says, the press corpse.
NJ Gov. Christie on Obama … “Most Ill-Prepared Person to Assume the Presidency in my Lifetime,” … “Trying to find Lightswitch of Leadership”
Christie hammers Obama … “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a dark room trying to find the light switch of leadership.”
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is never at a loss for words and such was the case while delivering a speech to Republicans in Lexington, KY. Christie He went on to blast Obama stating, “He has sat in the Oval Office and cared more about posing and preening and making partisan politics the rule of the day in Washington D.C. than he’s cared about progress.”
Christie further went on to say, He [Obama] is the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime.” If the shoe fits …
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told Kentucky Republicans on Saturday that President Barack Obama was “posing and preening” instead of working to resolve pressing issues facing the country.
“He is the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime,” Christie told some 600 Kentucky Republicans at a Lexington hotel. “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a dark room trying to find the light switch of leadership.”
Christie was in Kentucky to deliver a pep talk to state GOP leaders. The state’s presidential primary is Tuesday, though it will have no significant impact. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
Interestingly enough, VP Joe Biden did not think that Barack Obama was ready either to be President. Biden stated that the Presidency did not lend itself to on the job training. Biden was actually correct on that one.
There has been quite the controversy and uproar over New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s decision to fly the flag at half staff on Saturday in NJ for Whitney Houston’s funeral. Christie defended his actions of lowering the flag to half staff at state government buildings on Saturday, the day that Houston’s funeral services would be held in Newark, NJ.
Christie said he didn’t believe that Houston’s history of substance abuse “forfeited the good things she did.”
“I am disturbed by people who believe that because her ultimate demise — and we don’t know what is the cause of her death yet — but because of her history of substance abuse that somehow she’s forfeited the good things that she did in her life,” he said, according to the AP. “I just reject that on a human level.”
“What I would say to everybody is, ‘There but for the grace of God go I,’” he added.
I would ask the following question, yes Whitney Houston is a daughter of New Jersey, yes she was an amazingly talented singer and yes she was also a drug addict along the way. Christie references that her history of drug abuse should not diminish the good things she did. Like what? Did I miss the fact that she was Mother Teresa-like? Seriously, what good things did she do?Whitney Houston was an amazingly talented singer who gave the greatest rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” before Super Bowl XXV in from of millions of people worldwide as Gulf W in 1991. However, I am not sure if that rates flags being flown at half-staff.
Rush Limbaugh defended New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s plan to order flags in his state to be flown at half-staff on the day of the late singer Whitney Houston’s funeral, as he briefly dipped his toes in the world of entertainment on his radio show Thursday.
“I have a question. If she did not have in her life a problem with drug abuse and alcohol … we don’t yet know what the cause of death was, but let’s assume that alcohol and drugs had nothing to do with it. Take that out of it. How many of you would be upset that the flag was lowered to half staff?” Limbaugh said.
What is most interesting regarding Rush’s comments is that when El Rushbo ever decides to depart this Earth, the same flag flack will most likely occur.
With all due respect, many instances of flying flags half-staff for entertainers were done prior to 9-11. The attacks of September 11, 2001 kind of put a significance on such an act. My personal belief is that maybe the answer is to fly the state flag at half staff for entertainers. Let’s reserve the US flag for government officials, the military and first responders. Call me old fashion but I just think that there are many more daughters and sons of New Jersey that will have done more than Whitney will pass away and never be provided this honor.
Give us your opinion …
Today on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told David Gregorythat he thought in November 2012 he would still be the Governor of the Garden State; however, because he loves his country and his party enough, if he were asked by Mitt Romney to be VP, he would consider it. However, if he were a betting man, he sees himself still as NJ Guv in 2012.
Interestingly enough, a majority of NJ voters see Christie as Vice President.
The key numbers: 55% of New Jersey voters say it is “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that Christie will be the GOP running mate. But nearly seven in 10 voters, or 68%, say the blunt-speaking Christie doesn’t have the right personality for the job.
From the WAPO, Christie would consider a Mitt Romney VP spot.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Sunday that he would consider being Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate if Romney asked him, but said he remained skeptical that he would ever be on the ticket.
Christie, who previously denied that he was ready to be president but then briefly considered entreaties to run, also appears to have softened his resistance to the idea of being vice president.
“I absolutely believe that, come November 2012, I’m going to be governor of New Jersey and not in any other office,” Christie said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “But the fact of the matter is, if Gov. Romney, who’s going to be our nominee, picked up the phone and called me to talk about this, I love my country enough and I love my party enough to listen.”
Last year, when asked about the idea of being vice president, Christie said, “I don’t think there’s anybody in America who thinks my personality is best suited to being Number Two.”
Gotta Love Christie … he says exactly what he is thinking. How refreshing coming from a politician.
Why, oh why is Chris Christie not running for President? if anything else, the GOP needs a guy like this with the sense of humor and cojones like this to embarrass the Dems and Libs. Watch Christie in the VIDEO below shame the Obama endorsed Occupy idiots. This is exactly how you confront fools, mock them.
When will Occupy Libs learn … Chris Christie is way out for your league
Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
From the Washington Examiner comes the following:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie heckled a group of protesters at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Iowa on Wednesday, calling them immature and disillusioned for supporting President Obama.
Might NJ Governor Chris Christie run after all?
Chris Christie, the outspoken Republican New Jersey Governor has stated in the past that he would not run for President in 2012. However, according to Newsmax, Christie might just be reconsidering his decision not to enter the 2012 presidential race as they report that the NJ Governor will let top Republican donors know soon. After so many “no’s”, pundits are still floating his name. Then again, there are others that are denying the report and state nothing has changed with Christie.
During the past few weeks, several leading Republican donors and fundraisers have been urging the popular Republican governor to reconsider his decision not to run and to enter the GOP primary.
These Christie supporters note that significant GOP support has remained on the sidelines of the primary fight. Many leading fundraisers have yet to commit to any current primary contender, including frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires.
Christie entering the GOP primary, that would certainly shake up the mix. Earlier this week at an event at Rider College in NJ, Christie commented that the current GOP candidates are not answering the public’s appetite for real leadership.
“I think what the country is thirsting for, more than anything else right now, is someone of stature and credibility to tell them that and say, ‘Here’s where I want us to go to deal with this crisis,’” Christie said.
Christie continued: “The fact that nobody yet who’s running for president, in my view, has done that effectively is why you continue to hear people ask Daniels if he’ll reconsider and ask me if I’ll reconsider.”
What a splash Christie would make if he did decide to run. Many thought that when Texas Governor Rick Perry entered the race, he would fill the void of what GOP voters were looking for. Frankly, Perry’s position on illegal immigration is a disaster and he has been underwhelming in the debates. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is looked upon as being to contrived and too much of a politician … Chris Christie would be a breath of fresh air, would never be at a loss for words and would never beat around the bush.
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) Says The More the Merrier, A Whole New Cast of Republicans Should Run in 2012
The more the merrier, the GOP needs fresh faces, new ideas and individuals that have made a difference.
Republican US Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina says that a whole new cast of Republican candidates should run for the GOP nod for President in 2012. The conservative Senator is correct. The gains made by the GOP in the 2010 midterm elections were not about the status quo, they were about fresh change of ideas and return to common sense thinking and conservatism. The last thing that the GOP needs as a candidate in 2012 against Obama is a retread or party establishment candidate based on seniority.
Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina is not interested in running for the Republican presidential nomination, but he said Saturday that the presumed field might not be sufficient to inspire voters and he would welcome a last-minute entry by another candidate.
“If no one is an immediate front-runner,” Mr. DeMint said, “I think you might see a whole new cast of Republican candidates out within the next couple of months.”
