Chris Christie on the Record

- Chris Christie was born September 6, 1962 in Newark, New Jersey.

- George Mason University's Mercatus Center released a working paper ranking the solvency of the 50 states finding that Governor Chris Christie’s New Jersey is in the worst financial state of any state in the union while also being the worst in budget and long-run solvency. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/16/Study-Chr...

- Christie campaigned for Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush; the latter appointed him as United States Attorney for New Jersey, a position he held from 2002 to 2008.

- On November 05, 2013, Christie told South Carolina Republicans that he wants to help Senator Lindsey Graham, who is facing a conservative primary challenge next year.

- Christie threaded the needle on the Dream Act, a law that would permit students who entered the country illegally to pay in-state tuition rates. Two years ago he said the state couldn't afford to extend tuition equality to "people who haven't followed the rules." A few days ago in front of a largely Hispanic crowd, he said it's time to reconsider the measure. "I've never been opposed to tuition equality," Christie said. Source: Newark Star-Ledger on 2013 N.J. Governor debates , Oct 16, 2013

- Gov. Christie allowed $25 million in federally funded ads to feature him in the middle of an election year running in states beyond New Jersey, taken from the $60 billion in federal emergency disaster funding allocated to states affected by Sandy.

- Governor Christie supports gun control laws. He has supported the assault weapons ban, opposes concealed carry laws, and supports the New Jersey one gun per month law.

- While running for Assemblyman in 1995 Chris Christie put out a campaign flyer noting his support for the assault weapons ban. He called the support for repealing the ban dangerous, crazy, and radical.

- In 2009 while seeking the Governor's office in 2009, US Attorney Christie put out a fact sheet noting that he supported New Jersey's gun laws and opposed concealed carry laws. He mocked the idea that he "stood with the NRA."

- After assuming office, Governor Christie supported a recently passed New Jersey that only allowed each person to purchase one handgun per day.

- Christie quoted: “We ARE the leader in Libya; we MUST be the world's police.” (June 2011)

- Christie has defended the Patriot Act, including one highly controversial portion of the law that allowed the government to investigate what materials people take out of public libraries. (2007)

- Christie is happy to rail against the Affordable Care Act like every other Republican, but when it came to decision time, he went along with the Medicaid expansion. He declined to set up a state-run exchange for the marketplace, meaning the Garden State is now contending with the error-riddled federal site.

- Christie invoked an old standby to criticize recent legislative activity like the narrow defeat of Justin Amash's amendment and Rep. Rush Holt's recently introduced bill to repeal the PATRIOT Act.
“As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that’s going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought,” Christie said. Christie dismissed some of the current privacy/national security debates as "esoteric."

- The Hunt for Pufferfish: A Double Down Excerpt: During the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney ranked Chris Christie among the final contenders to be his running mate. That is until the Republican nominee started digging into the New Jersey governor’s record

We jaw on and on about

We jaw on and on about outrageous situations but here we are preaching to the choir--the positive side of this being of course that the choir is growing apace. However, the truth is not that 'as a man thinketh, so is he' but 'as a man do-eth so is he'. Which of us is working to get the Liberty Party onto state ballots and into the debates? Who is going to finance the Liberty Party convention? Whose company is going to launch the publicity campaign. Who is the (possibly retired) executive who is going to organize the movement and recruit the fundraisers? I have learned here that there are many arguments against third parties, but a viable alternative is the only way to get rid of a dying party that won't go away and won't mend.

Oyez

Go ahead stupid republicans. YOU WILL LOSE AGAIN!!!

I'll sure do my part if they nominate Christie.

Because ANYONE who endorses the Neo-Con TRAITOR, Lyndsey Graham, I will do all I can to DEFEAT.

It will be more of what happened in 2012 and Hillary will waltz right on in.

So while the GOP continues to dis Tea-Party, Libertarian types (Laura Ingraham are you listening you wench?), we are gearing up for 2012 2.0.

The GOP has quickly forgotten that they needed us then and they will neede us again.

I hope this blows up the corrupt republican party for once and for all.

THEN we come for the LIBERAL rats!!!

More dirt on this guy

Myers’ team put the finishing touches on the Pufferfish vetting dossier. Included was a DVD with some of Christie’s most outlandish or unnerving YouTube hits: his castigating a pro-gay-marriage New Jersey assemblyman as “numb nuts,” his angrily berating a constituent while chasing him down the Seaside Heights boardwalk, brandishing an ice cream cone. But the main event was the 35-page written report titled “Chris Christie memo 71912 FINAL.”

anyone know

How much the RNC gave to Christie's re-election in NJ?
just curious.

Evidently several times what it gave to Cuccinelli...

...even though it was obvious Christie wouldn't need it, while Cuccinelli was struggling.

I didn't need to read the

I didn't need to read the article. I just came here to post how much Crispy sucks. That is all.

You might learn something new.

Like I did:

"Christie threaded the needle on the Dream Act, a law that would permit students who entered the country illegally to pay in-state tuition rates."

I had no clue that an illegal could get IN-STATE rates for tuition. Unreal.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

True. And now I hate him

True. And now I hate him more. Thank you.

Christie ON the record?

Well I hope it doesn't break, it wasn't designed for a man his size....yuk yuk yuk....I'll be here all week.

But seriously, where did anyone get the idea that this man is a conservative? How can anyone say that with a straight face? ..."tuition equality" Sounds more like a Bolsheviki to me.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

If Christie loses...

he may end up living in a van, down by the river!

His appeal for the GOP

Is his ability to woo women, independents, coservative democrats and minorities to vote republican. Other than that he's all for government anything. He tried to start out his politicsl career with the democratic party but they didnt want him, probably too conservative for nj, which isnt saying much as to how conservative christie is. He could do very well with democrats out west, who tend to be much more conservative than eastern dems.

RON PAUL 2012

I predict...

Christ Christie will win a contentious primary battle because the media will assist him to garner popularity over the "radical TEA Party" candidates such as Rand Paul or Ted Cruz and then he will become the nominee. Once that takes place the media will turn on him because their DREAM candidate Hillary Clinton will be able to "make history" and become the first woman to be President of The United States. The sheeple in true fashion will embrace this "historic" voting opportunity (not unlike the way they did for Obama) and she will be elected. I can see it coming. Prepare yourselves now.

I hope you are

wrong. We certainly will do everything possible in South Carolina to prevent a Christie primary win.
The first thing you mentioned, about him supporting Lindsey Graham, should be a signal to true conservatives that Christie is trouble and it will draw the ire of many liberty minded activists here.

It's a mystery why the Republicans want this guy on the ballot

That seems to be what happens when all you have to stand for is to win an election, never mind any core principals, no true beliefs, tell them what they want to hear, just get them to vote.

He's the perfect candidate...

...to appeal to the voters who want LEADERSHIP (!), and TOUGH TALK (!), and so forth, but haven't got a clue about any of the issues.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

He has core beliefs. He

He has core beliefs. He believes that he knows better than you how to run your life.

This might sound weird but so be it lol

My issue with Chris Christie is his weight. If he can't even take care of his own health and has the need to overindulge within his own life, how can he honestly do anything good for others.

Not that politicians should be looked up to BUT someone like the good doctor who bike rides, eats healthy and honestly tries to live a life that will end up VERY LONG seems like a politician that I would assume people would want to lead them whether state wide or nationally.

Chris just reminds me of that Wall-e movie and am waiting to see him on a sit-down version of the segway because he is just too lazy to walk or actually move on his own.

I don't even need to get into his shitty voting record, it is just MORE MORE MORE which I assume is exactly what he says when he sits down to eat 12 times a day.

I can't imagine Cristie going up that long flight of stairs

to board air force one. One slip and it will lend a whole new meaning to his moniker "Governor wrecking ball" LOL

He looks like the people from

He looks like the people from the Disney movie Wall E.

I have a problem

with his weight also. People who are grossly overweight usually have emotional and psychological issues. They hide behind their weight to protect themselves. Combine this with his abrasive loud-mouth style and I would say there is potential trouble with this man.

His language, appalling at times and he has a very short temper

Is this the image we need as Americans to portray in our president?

I can't believe this is the best candidate the Republicans can find, undisciplined and not at all professional.

In terms of personality, he reminds me a bit of Teddy Roos...

...brash, loud, hyper-competitive, possibly psychotic.
