Christie Refuses To Support GOP Opponent to Democratic NY Gov. Cuomo

I’ve been saying all along the New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a Democrat in Republican clothes.  He has regularly aligned himself with Democrats such as Barack Obama, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and outgoing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  He has sided with Democrats on a number of liberal issues such as same-sex marriage, Obamacare, supporting Muslims with known terrorist ties and many of the fiscal cliff standoffs.

Yet, a number of Republicans still list Christie’s name in the top 6 Republican candidates for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.  What’s just as confusing is why other Republican governors voted to make him the new head of the Republican Governors Association.

One of the main goals of the Republican Governors Association is to help elect Republican governors in every state possible.  However, that doesn’t seem to be one of the priorities for liberal leaning Christie.

After The Post ran an article that Christie would back Rob Astorino’s possible run for New York Governor, current Gov. Cuomo said that Christie called him to say The Post was wrong.  Astorino, a Republican, is the County Executive of Westchester County who has made hints that he may consider a run for the governor’s mansion in 2014.

According a report, Cuomo said:

“I spoke to Gov. Christie this morning, who told me the exact opposite.’’

Astorino’s friends say they are dumbfounded by Cuomo’s statement, which Christie has not denied.  Astorino and Christie met for an hour at the Republican Governors Association meeting last month in Arizona.  The Post article reporting Christie’s backing of Astorino was made from sources close to Astorino after that meeting between the two men.  Ed Cox, State GOP Chairman for New York said that The Post article was accurate as he was in attendance at the RGA meeting last month.

Since Christie has not denied Cuomo’s statement for the past week, a number of Republicans are growing concerned about his allegiance to the GOP and believe this may greatly harm his chances of any 2016 presidential bid.  One nationally prominent Republican operative who did not disclose his name commented on Christie, saying:

“Christie already has a problem with many Republicans refusing to forgive him because of his embrace of [President] Obama and his socially liberal policies.  But this bizarre behavior in suggesting he won’t help a Republican defeat a Democratic governor, and a Cuomo no less, could finish off his chances of becoming his party’s nominee for president in 2016.’’

I hope that this latest bizarre behavior of Christie puts the final nail in coffin containing his presidential aspirations.  I also hope it makes the rest of the Republican governors take a second look and reconsider making him the head of the Republican Governors Association and replace him with a more conservative governor to lead the charge against Democratic liberalism.

    If I were Astorino, I’d take his lack of endorsement as a blessing.

  • Mr Bob

    Bitch all you want about Christie, but at the end of the day he (or some other RINO) will be the nominee. The GOP may be stupid. But they aren’t stupid enough to put some teabagging lunatic on the ticket!

    • DOOM161

      So they’re not stupid enough to win? That explains a lot.

    • Sam

      You don’t even know what the Tea Party stands for. You’re a radical leftist.

      • Mr Bob

        They stand for BIG GOVERNMENT! they support MORE government regulations over a woman’s body, want the government to tell us who & who we cannot marry, what scientific research should & should not be allowed. They hate welfare for the poor but LOVE welfare for the rich (farmers) & believe blacks are too stupid to know what’s best for them so by suppressing their vote they are actually looking out for their best interests

        • me109g4

          Here u go bob,, the Tea Party Platform, all in a package even you could understand. As it is obvious you have never read what they stand for I have supplied a link, then you can get back to us on how you got all that rubbish you spouted out of what they stand for, http://www.teaparty-platform.com/

        • buckman21

          9 out of 10 times Bob won’t read something unless you post it here for him me109g4. So while I like your website link, I’ll just post it him here for him to see for himself that he has no idea what he is talking about (i.e. getting rid of policies, not enacting more).

          Ten Core Beliefs of the Modern-Day Tea Party Movement

          “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”

          Abraham Lincoln

          Preamble: The Tea Party Movement is an all-inclusive American grassroots movement with the belief that everyone is created equal and deserves an equal opportunity to thrive in these United States where they may “pursue life, liberty and happiness” as stated in theDeclaration of Independence and guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

          No one is excluded from participation in the Tea Party Movement. Everyone is welcomed to join in seeking to achieve the Tea Party Movement goals, which are as follows:

          1. Eliminate Excessive Taxes – Excessively high taxes are a burden for those exercising their personal liberty to work hard and prosper as afforded by the Constitution. A fiscally responsible government protects the freedom of its citizens to enjoy the fruits of their own labor without interference from a government that has exceeded its necessary size, scope and reach into the lives of its citizens.

          “Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.” –Calvin Coolidge

          “A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson

          “Any tax is a discouragement and therefore a regulation.” –Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

          Also see: What is the Tea Party; Tea Party Ideas; Tea Partiers; Voice of the Tea Party

          2. Eliminate the National Debt – By implementing fiscally conservative policies at all levels of government, progress can be made toward eliminating the U.S. National Debt. Massive increases in the National Debt have created and continue to create a huge burden for the next generation of Americans, thus imperiling the country’s short-term and long-term economic health and prosperity.

          “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” –Thomas Paine, 1776

          “As on the one hand, the necessity for borrowing in particular emergencies cannot be doubted, so on the other, it is equally evident that to be able to borrow upon good terms, it is essential that the credit of a nation should be well established.” –Alexander Hamilton, 1790

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          3. Eliminate Deficit Spending – All deficit spending must be eliminated immediately. We insist that government representatives at all levels maintain a fiscally responsible budget and balance the books as would be expected of any American business.

          “Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness.” –George Washington

          “A penny saved is a penny earned.” –Benjamin Franklin

          “Tomorrow, every Fault is to be amended; but that Tomorrow never comes.” –Benjamin Franklin

          Tea Party Platform – Home of the Tea Party Movement Platform continued:

          4. Protect Free Markets – America’s free enterprise system allows businesses to thrive as they compete in the open marketplace and strive toward ever better services and products. Allowing free markets to prosper unfettered by government interference is what propelled this country to greatness with an enduring belief in the industriousness and innovations of the populace.

          “That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” –Ronald Reagan

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          5. Abide by the Constitution of the United States – The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land and must be adhered to without exception at all levels of government. This includes the Bill of Rights and other Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and their provisions designed to protect states’ rights and individual liberties.

          “A general Dissolution of Principles & Manners will more surely overthrow the Liberties of America than the whole Force of the Common Enemy.” –Samuel Adams, 1779

          “The Constitution is the guide which I will never abandon.” –George Washington

          “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” –Abraham Lincoln

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          6. Promote Civic Responsibility – Citizen involvement at the grassroots level allows the voice of the American people to be heard and directs the political behaviors of our representatives at both the local and national level so they, in turn, may be most effective in working to preserve the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of this country’s citizens.

          “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” –Patrick Henry

          “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light” –George Washington

          “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” –Thomas Jefferson

          Tea Party Platform – Home of the Tea Party Movement Platform continued:

          7. Reduce the Overall Size of Government – A bloated bureaucracy creates wasteful spending that plagues our government. Reducing the overall size, scope and reach of government at both local and national levels will help to eliminate inefficiencies that result in deficit spending which adds to our country’s debt.

          “My observation is that whenever one person is found adequate to the discharge of a duty…it is worse executed by two persons, and scarcely done at all if three or more are employed therein.” –George Washington

          “If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.” –Samuel Adams, 1802

          “Energy and persistence conquer all things.” –Benjamin Franklin

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          8. Believe in the People – The American people, given their guaranteed freedoms, will thrive in a democratic, capitalist environment which allows individuals to strive toward ever greater achievements, innovations and the efficient production of needed and valued goods and services.

          “Industry need not wish.” –Benjamin Franklin

          “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “The people will save their government, if the government itself will allow them.” –Abraham Lincoln

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          9. Avoid the Pitfalls of Politics – American politics is burdened by big money from lobbyists and special interests with an undue influence on the peoples’ representatives. The Tea Party movement is seen as a threat to the entrenched political parties and thus is the continual target of smear campaigns and misrepresentation of its ideals. We choose not to respond to these attacks except to strongly and explicitly disavow any and all hate speech, any and all violence as well as insinuations of violence, and any and all extreme and fringe elements that bring discredit to the Tea Party Movement. We are a peaceful movement and respect other’s opinions and views even though they do not agree with our own. We stand by the Tea Party beliefs and goals and choose to focus our energies on ensuring that our government representatives do the same.

          “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” –Abraham Lincoln

          “Honesty is the best policy.” –Benjamin Franklin

          “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” –George Washington

          Also see: What is the Tea Party; Tea Party Ideas; Tea Partiers; Voice of the Tea Party

          Tea Party Platform continued:

          10. Maintain Local Independence – The strength and resilience of a grassroots movement is the ability of citizens at the local level to determine their own platforms, agendas and priorities free of an overriding central leadership. Exercising the clearly stated message of the Tea Party movement by its nature involves discourse about which policies and candidates best hold to our stated principles, and these various opinions should flourish and evolve at the local level.

          “Here sir, the people govern.” –Alexander Hamilton in a speech to the New York Ratifying Convention, 1788

          “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.” –Samuel Adams, 1781

          “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.” –Abraham Lincoln

          10 out of 10 times, Mr Bob won’t make even a halfhearted attempt to UNDERSTAND anything he doesn’t WANT to agree with.

  • Sam

    That stinkin’ fat pig. We are going to have to be real careful who we vote for. Seems the dems are posing as Republicans.

    • USMC 64-68

      Sam, you may have that backward.

      For the 8 years of W’s administration, the republicans acted like democrats. “Democrat Lite,” to be sure, but not republicans – they spent like democrats, they grew gov’t like democrats, they increased the debt like democrats, and they increased entitlements like democrats – then there were the bailouts, etc.

      They even got in the bailout private business game with taxpayer money.

      The democrats are treasonous marxists and the republicans are sniveling cowards who have forsaken their oath to defend the Constitution.

      • Sam

        the demoncrats were the majority in congress since 2007. They caused the prime mortgage fallout. Yes, the Republicans spent a lot, too. Your last line says it all.

        • Mr Bob

          Dubya had a 6 year 3 way majority in Congress & the economic collapse happened on his watch so to blame the for it is a real streach

        • USMC 64-68

          No it’s not – not if you’re honest.

          You’re conveniently (dishonestly) ignoring the role marxist democrats played from decades ago starting with Jimmy “The Palestinians’ Pal” Carter who signed the Community Reinvestment Act and gave birth to another socialist/statist program, which was later expanded under Slick Willy “The Terror of Women” Clinton.

          You also dishonestly have completely passed over the democrats repeated efforts to squelch the attempts by W to rein the program in. It was that program that directly contributed to the creation of the junk bonds, etc.

          Don’t forget the role that ACORN and other democrat communist organizations played in the scam to redistribute wealth.

          However, this is to be expected from supporters of subversive marxists in America: communist disinformation!

        • Sam

          Chris Dodd and Barney Frank were head of the Ways and Means committee. They forced the banks to give loans to people who couldn’t really afford them. The banks kept reselling the notes until there was no one left to buy them. Thus, we had the prime mortgage fallout. Communists have infiltrated the democrat party so it’s not going to do anything good for America.

        • JackFrancis

          Who told you that the mortgage fallout started after 2007? That had been building for a decade. In 1999 a Republican Congress passed a law repealing the Glass Steagall Act separating investment and commercial banking. In 2000, a Republican Congress prohibited the regulation of derivatives, even though they are so risky that Warren Buffet called them the “financial weapons of mass destruction”. The Republican obsession with deregulation caused this disaster.

        • Sam

          Chris Dodd and Barney Frank were head of the Ways and Means Committee. They told the banks to lower their standards so poorer people could get loans. The loans were repeated sold until finally, there were no banks left to buy them because so many had gone bad because of lendy to risky borrowers. This led to the eventual prime mortgage fallout.

        • JackFrancis

          The congress in 1999 and 2000 when these regulations were repealed was a Republican Congress. That means that the heads of all committees were Republicans. Your story doesn’t hold water.

      • Steven

        Can we settle on politicians whose natural home is the Democrat party are running as members of the Republican party?

    • Larry Christopher

      That’s why we should have CONSERVATIVE Republicans “posing” as Democrats to run in Democrat primaries. When conservatism is outlined in detail next to liberalism, people overwhelmingly choose conservatism…until the see the (R) beside it…then they run away. It’s time we infiltrated the enemy camps just like they have infiltrated ours. Teach Conservatism. Read about the “Convention of States”…and join.

      • Mr Bob

        What you people cannot seem to understand is that it’s NOT that the conservative message isn’t clear (it is) it’s that the American people reject the message

        • Larry Christopher

          Bob, I really hate to burst your bubble, but most intelligent people are running from Liberalism as quickly as they can. The Democrats rely so heavily on polls, however, this bunch of leftist extremists that occupy Washington right now disregard polls. They don’t care what the American people want, and it is finally waking up the leftist zombies. You, however will stay in your slumber until death. It’s a shame…you seem reasonably intelligent, but refuse to open your eyes to the truth. The American people embrace conservatism, however, the Republican brand has been demonized by the media…the liberal teachers have indoctrinated the kids in school…however, thanks to the current corruption, people are starting to question what they have been forced to believe. You can deny this all you want…but the facts are abundantly clear.

    • You Knucklehead

      “Stinkin fat pig” Was that really necessary?

    • felix1999

      The media WANTS Christie to be our nominee. It’s a McPAIN repeat.

  • Jim Horn

    Cristie is an abomination to be shunned. His refusing to support a Republican against a liberal is the end of him. Any Republican, no matter what, is a better candidate than a liberal in any election anywhere.

  • Idahodoll

    That’s because he’s a liberal in conservative’s clothing! Watch him switch parties at the 11th hour and run as a dumocrat!

    • Larry Christopher

      I hope he does switch parties…at ANY hour. He is NOT a republican…and he is FAR from being a CONSERVATIVE Republican.

  • runnindeer

    I don’t know about Jolly, having said for a while that Christie is a Democrat in Republican clothes but it’s on the record that I have been saying it long before Hurricane Sandy showed his colors. No doubt, this is the man that the GOP plans to run as our next candidate to go up against Hillary “at this point what difference does it make” Clinton. The democrats have been promoting him as a great candidate for some time. Yet, our GOP STILL claims that Christie is the great hope for the next term. As usual, America is sold out to more of this sameness , disguised as a difference.

  • me109g4

    RNC,, read my lips,, I would vote for a bag of dogshit before I voted that RINO Christie into ANY public office, He is NOT a Republican.

    • Mr Bob

      The RNC knows something that you dimwits obviously DO NOT! That is the GOP need someone that could possibly carry some blue states (beyond FL, OH & VA) to win & a RINO is the ONLY hope they have of somebody doing that!

      • allen goldberg

        Mr. Bob
        permit me to disagree
        RINOS do not get elected.
        And the very last thing we need, is advice from liberals like yourself.

        • Mr Bob

          I’m curious, exactly what states do you believe someone like Cruz or Paul would carry that mittens didn’t? EVEN if either one could carry OH, VA & FL (along with EVERY state Mittens carried), they would STILL LOSE!

        • RightBrained

          I dare say that if a TRUE conservative is nominated, we have an excellent chance of regaining control! You see, after one of the worst presidencies in Democrat history, Jimmy Carter, the people were clamoring for real change and a solution to overbearing government. I’m sure you are too blinded by your Kool Aide, but Obama has lost control of his presidency. His trust has plummeted, and the very group that helped elect him, the Millennials, would now vote to recall him by 52%. It seems to me that history will soon be repeating itself, and we will soon have someone more like Reagan in the White House. But…. you go ahead and keep believing your dearly beloved party is undefeatable. Your apathy will certainly prove to be as foolish as you ill-conceived logic.

      • Steven

        As the RNC has DEMONSTRATED in the last 2 Presidential elections, NO ONE they nominate will attract enough LIBERAL votes to make up for the CONSERVATIVE votes they lose by nominating a liberal. Those that want a Democrat will vote for the one with a D after their name. REGARDLESS of the party in power, the best strategy for the opposing party is to be as FAR from the party in power as possible.

  • J J

    So, Chris, are you saying that you would rather have a Democrat in that office?? Really?? You are looking more and more like a RINO!! I hope you don’t waste the time and money of Republicans by running for President in 2016!!!

  • poptoy1949

    You can’t miss him by sight. Now you can smell a RINO ! This is not a Conservative. This is not what the Republican Party needs in 2016. Kissinger, Rove and the establishment are pushing him but he is not what is needed.

    If he is allowed to run under the republican banner, we will lose.
    He is not the man we need in the white house. Jeb bush is not the man we need.
    People better wake up, we need so done that has a clear view on what direction we need to go. We are in trouble and our liberties, and rights are being held in the balance.

    • JackFrancis

      The problem is that he is the only person who can run under the Republican banner and win. Republicans keep shooting themselves in the foot with wackos like Cruz/Palin/Bachmann/Perry. Romney wasn’t a complete wacko, but tried to become one to win in the primaries and in doing so lost the general election.

    Christie just blew any chance he had left of ever becoming President, and rightly so.

  • danstewart

    Always knew lardass was a dumbocrap in disguise.

  • gregzotta

    Chris Christie wants to be president. Along with the above,here are several reasons why he should not be president. Christie is NOT a conservative. He is an unprincipled, loudmouth bully. Christie has taken money from the Federal Government, i.e. the American taxpayers to prop up New Jersey. He assisted Barack Hussein Obama in his re-election over Mitt Romney. Furthermore, Christie is weak on the second Amendment, he supports gun control; he is weak on immigration, he supports amnesty; he is weak on the threat of Islam, he supports the 911 mosque and appointed Islamists to the bench; he’s in favor of the green agenda, Cap and Trade; he campaigned for RINO Mike Castle; and was MIA on health care litigation. For additional information Tom Marr has a You-Tube video exposing the RINO Chris Christie for what and who he is.

    ” in with them and suggesting they explain their position to victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.” So the loudmouth, bully RINO Christie thinks the spying program on Americans would have prevented 9/11. I guess he forgot the spying program was up and running when Boston got hit at the marathon. The Obama Regime is spying on Americans to create enemies lists. There are other ways to go about protecting the citizens of this country without violating their rights.

    That’s fine with me. In NJ I did NOT vote for him either. So I don’t support him and clearly he doesn’t support my worldview. I voted for Lonegan and again,Christie refused to endorse Lonegan who is a TEA PARTY GOPer. Christie is salavating for 2016 and he will LOSE if he wins the primary.
