Christie’s Crisis: And This Surprises Us Why?

chris+christie+latestYes, it’s the great Ft. Lee lane-closing conspiracy of 2014, again.

The New York Times ran an editorial this morning — “G.O.P. Advice for Christie: Pick a Better Team” —  highlighting Chris Christie’s, I suppose they would describe it foundering, efforts to get past the George Washington Bridge debacle that has tarnished his landslide reelection victory.

NYT:

… This was supposed to be a season of triumph and celebration for the governor of New Jersey — a chance to bask in his landslide re-election victory in a Democratic state, embark on a European tour to bolster his foreign policy credentials and emerge as the modern face of a Republican Party desperate to win back the White House.

Now, the foreign trip is in limbo as Mr. Christie tries to rebuild his credibility. His biggest political assets, his personality and spontaneity, have been all but absent as he evades reporters’ questions and holds few public appearances. And Republicans around the country, including those who saw him as their party’s most compelling candidate for president in 2016, are calling in with advice, sobering in its candor…

Mr. Christie has told friends and contributors that he can weather the slings and scrutiny, even as he complains about what he sees as “piling on” by his enemies and a once-admiring news media, according to people told of his thinking, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be associated with comments that could upset the governor or his aides. [more]

So there are doubts that the governor can get by this traffic jam (no pun intended, har-har), just so you don’t get your hopes up. But hey, it could work out, even though Christie’s “once admiring media” are struggling with the dilemma of having to shift their allegiance to—Drat!—Hillary Clinton.

From there the article goes on, as our buddy Dan Riehl pointed out this morning, to essentially fabricate ramifications brought on by a crisis that has been largely fabricated by the New York media in the first place. And that mostly to distract the public from Barack Obama’s failed policies, which are coming to bare now that a few sniveling journalists are losing their doctors.

But they do have one thing right. When a RINO gets sucker-kicked in the ‘nads he can rarely count on the support of fellow Establishment flacks. Christie has been all but a GOP leper since the event hit the news shortly after his reelection.

Most interesting to me is how often this happens with prominent RINOs. That firebrand Mitt Romney was a liberal media darling before he began powering up his 2012 campaign. Then suddenly he became a snidely killer of domestic pets. (When given the choice between man kills dog and man kills and eats dog, the media went with the obvious geeky wholesome Mormon family angle.)

John McCain was the lefty-lauded “maverick” of the U.S. Senate (translate complete sellout) before his 2008 run. I’m not sure but I think that might be where the term stupid-ass old guy was coined.

And does anyone remember Bob… What was his name? Dole—that’s it!

Will the Establishment never learn?

Don’t get me wrong, I think Chris Christie as the 2016 nominee is the worst idea a Republican has had since Mike Huckabee’s mother suggested The Little Rockers, but hopefully this will wake up a few RINOs.

Guy’s, its when the New York Times says something nice about you that you know your life is about to go terribly wrong.

    You know what upsets me about this case?
    First let me say my husband and I (me and my husband for the grammar police) are Independents because we both agree and disagree with both parties on various issues.

    When Hurricane Sandy happened, it really upset that Republicans were criticizing Christie. To us; this was not about Politics, this was about people putting their political views aside and working together. So when *BridgeGate* comes about, more and more things come out such as: This morning on GMA, it was said that Christie was basically black mailing (some would say bullying – the term “bullying” is so abused) and saying “This could stall your Sandy Funds”
    I hope there is more behind this that makes it explainable. I really like Christie, however, if spending $25 million on a commercial for that was meant to be used for victims of Hurricane Sandy — it’s unacceptable. I would hope Republicans are not condoning this. I know Democrats have been involved in many shoddy activitie$ as well, matter in fact I can’t see how any person can stand behind the phuckery behind Obama care; but this is about Christie.
    I have to ask: If Christie were a Democrat; would Republicans be sticking up for him? Would you believe that Christie had nothing to do with Bridge Gate as well as the current accusations?

    Thanks for the comment. Our point was not to defend or condemn Christie so much as to indict RINOs in general.

    I usually read your blog in the mornings as I’m feeding my 4 month old. So I read to her in a baby voice and use silly inflections and voices, like I’m reading a really exciting story book. She finds RG far more interesting than her ABC books. Just thought I’d share. 😉

      Now that’s just spooky. That’s exactly the voice I’m writing in. Lol.
