GOP New Hamphire Debate 2/6/16: OUCH, Gov. Christie Destroys Sen. Rubio on Lack of Leadership Comparing to Obama … “Do not make the same mistake” (VIDEO)
NEW JERSEY GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE DESTROYED MARCO RUBIO LAST NIGHT ON LACK OF LEADERSHIP …
During last nights debate on ABC News ahead of Monday’s 2016 New Hampshire primaries, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a once man wrecking crew and laid waste to the new found darling establishment candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio. Christie lambasted Rubio on being ill prepared to be president of the United States. Christie stated that being a Senator does not prepare one to be president, whereas when one is a governor, they need to make decisions that impact the people who elected them and are held accountable for those decisions.
Check out the look Rubio gave Christie during this exchange
Things got started when Rubio was asked to respond to Christie’s allegation that, after experiencing the presidency of Barack Obama, who was elected as a first-term U.S. senator, it would be especially unfortunate if the Republican Party were itself to nominate Marco Rubio, a first term U.S. senator, for the White House. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” Christie had said (bettering his former benefactor, George).
Rubio’s comeback was pretty good, if a little obvious in its intent: He argued that experience was overrated; if it mattered, Vice President Joe Biden would be a good candidate for commander-in-chief. He then argued that an unspoken premise of the criticism — that Obama has failed in part due to his inexperience — is faulty. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing, Rubio said. The president is not a fool; he’s a menace.
Christie wasn’t having it, dismissing Rubio’s Biden straw man and recommitting to his initial attack. Rubio’s a nice guy, a smart guy, Christie said; but the simple fact is that he’s never had to make an important decision. This got a noticeable round of applause from the audience. And perhaps that’s why Rubio then proceeded to self-destruct.
Christie stated with regards to Rubio, “you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable, you just simply haven’t.” Christie followed up with, “the fact is, when you talk about the Hezbollah sanctions act that you list as one of your accomplishments, you weren’t even there to vote for it.” Then Christie crushed Rubio with the fact that he didn’t even show to vote with … “that’s not leadership, that’s truancy”.
Christie then did the most damning thing he could do to Rubio, compared the Florida senator to the 1st term 2008 Sen. Barack Obama and his lack of experience for the job and what that has gotten us. Christie provided the following backhanded compliment, “I like Marco Rubio and he’s a smart person and a good guy. But he simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States and make these decisions. We have watched it happen everybody for the last 7 years. The people of New Hampshire are smart, do not make the same mistake again.” OUCH!!!
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ Says South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Choice as GOP Response to President Obama’s SOTU Address Demonstrated the Party’s Lack of Diversity
WHEN IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY GOING TO WISE UP AND GET RID OF DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ?
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to Barack Obama’s final State of the Union speech. That was not lost on Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and neither was once again put her foot in her mouth again and making an ass out of herself. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity. HUH? What a hateful, vile individual. It would seem that lost on the DNC chair is the fact that the Democrats are running nothing bust pasty white candidates. Diversity? Meanwhile the GOP has both men and women seeking a presidential nomination, two Latinos, one black and a dude born in Canada. Oh that’s right, the Democrats have Hillary Clinton as their standard barer for woman and diversity, the same woman who stood behind, protected and enabled her husband Bill Clinton to sexually harass woman and worse.
It would appear that not only does Debbie downer not know the difference between the Democrat party and Socialism, she also is definition challenged when it comes to the word diversity. Actually Debbie, you know what demostares a lack of diversity, running a bunch of lily white liberals!
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity.
Oops! Has she looked at the Democratic lineup of presidential candidates lately?
“It’s pretty clear that Nikki Haley is being chosen because the Republican Party has a diversity problem,” Wasserman Schultz, who’s also a Florida congresswoman said in a conference call, according to The Hill, which reported:
GOP Presidential Debate: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Fires Back at CNBC Moderator John Harwood: “Do You Want Me To Answer Or Do You Want To Answer?”… “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”
CNBC Moderators show they are a complete disgrace again at last nights GOP Presidential Debate in Boulder, CO …
Who would have ever thought a NBC business channel in CNBC would have ever acted worse than MSNBC?
How bad are moderators when a New Jersian says that what they are doing and how they are conducting themselves would be called rude in New Jersey? But that was the tenor, mood and theme of last nights GOP debate as the liberal and bias CNBC moderators were more interested in listening to themselves talk, insult the candidates and just be down right nasty. Its one thing for a moderator is ask tough questions, but what CNBC did last night was over the top. You could actually feel the venom and contempt that the moderators had for the Republican candidates.
“John, do you want me to answer or do you want to answer?” Christie asked the reporter at Wednesday’s Republican primary debate. “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”
Note to RNC, why exactly did you schedule this debate? And if you ever allow another one on this Democrat, liberal propaganda new channel, some one need to be fired.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker drops out of GOP residential run …
Another governor has dropped out of the GOP presidential primary race. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has ended his bid for the 2016 GOP residential run. Gov. Walker was originally thought to be a sure fire strong candidate for the Republican party. Boy were the pundits wrong on that one. Then again, the political pundits have been pretty much wrong on everything this political cycle. As stated at the Washington Free Beacon, the Walker campaign finally ended in the culmination of a stunning downfall from frontrunner to an also-ran in the crowded GOP field.
In a press conference Walker had some party words, “Today I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately.” Walker then had a parting shot at Donald Trump, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.” Hmm, that is rather sour grapes.
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, whose early glow as a Republican presidential contender was snuffed out with the rise of anti-establishment rivals, announced Monday that he was quitting the race and urged some of his 15 rivals to do the same so the party could unite against the leading candidate, Donald J. Trump.
Mr. Walker’s pointed rebuke of Mr. Trump gave powerful voice to the private fears of many Republicans that the party risked alienating large parts of the electorate — Hispanics, women, immigrants, veterans, and most recently, Muslims — if Mr. Trump continued vilifying or mocking them as part of his overtures to angry and disaffected voters.
Still, Mr. Walker’s exit was not a selfless sacrifice: He was running low on campaign cash, sliding sharply in opinion polls, losing potential donors to rivals and unnerving supporters with a stream of gaffes, like saying he would consider building a wall along the Canadian border.
Appearing ashen and drained at a brief news conference late Monday in Madison, Mr. Walker said the Republican presidential field was too focused on “how bad things are” rather than on “how we can make them better for everyone.” Without naming Mr. Trump, Mr. Walker issued a plea to fellow candidates to coalesce around a different Republican who could offer a more “optimistic” vision and guide the party to a victory next year that, he admitted with sadness in his voice, he could not achieve himself.
With Walker’s snide comments made toward Donald Trump in making the comment that, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner,” does that mean if Donald Trump ever does win by chance the GOP presidential nominee, will Walker endorse him as Trump was made to pledge?
