GOP Civil War: Christie Rips Boehner & House GOP

WASHINGTON -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) lit into House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Republicans Wednesday for not holding a vote on a Hurricane Sandy relief bill.

"There is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House majority and their speaker, John Boehner," he said. "This is not a Republican or Democratic issue. Natural disasters happen in red states and blue states and states with Democratic governors and Republican governors. We respond to innocent victims of natural disasters, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans. Or at least we did until last night. Last night, politics was placed before oaths to serve our citizens. For me, it was disappointing and disgusting to watch."

House Republicans declined to schedule a vote for Sandy aid Tuesday night, after voting to pass a fiscal cliff deal. If the House does not pass a disaster relif bill before noon on Thursday, when the new session of Congress begins, lawmakers will have to start over.

Christie can go to he!!.

Who cares what he thinks

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

House Members Do Not Take "Oaths To Serve Our Citizens"

They take oaths to uphold the Constitution.

And nothing in the Constitution authorizes disaster relief.

Pot calling kettle black.


Who cares what Christie has to say? Not me...

His use of the pronoun "we" is unwarranted unless he has a mouse in his pocket.

Self-aggrandizement at its

Self-aggrandizement at its finest. End FEMA anyway...

Just goes to show

Christy is a GOP insider whose job is to destroy the GOP to give us one party.. for a NWO.
