Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

NJ Gov Chris Christie: A Man With The Balls To Say NO And MEAN It

I hate New Jersey. I've been there once, when I went to the bathroom at a Chevron station. It was disgustingly filthy like the rest of the state at the time.

It was like driving through Bakersfield only, in truth, slightly worse.

I almost wish I lived in New Jersey instead of Fornicalia these days, because their governor is remarkably candid, truthful, efficacious. He is almost (dare I say) the Anti-Politician.

He has essentially, with his newest public disclosure, slammed the state door in the face of Mr Obama and his ridiculous nation-destroying minions. He has embarrassed them in public and at a press conference. And I think that's wonderful.

Mr Obama is pushing an infrastructure pogrom nationally (see the White House blog here). All of the Standard Sycophants stood by Mr Obama as he made his announcement, including a few Republicans. Except that the Devil Is In The Details. And Mr Christie dared to point out -- to the major dismay of DC -- some of those nasty little niggling details.

From Politico.com:

He isn’t on the guest list, but New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be on everyone’s mind Monday when President Barack Obama calls for a bipartisan commitment to quickly approve $50 billion in federal spending on roads, rails and airports.

A group of mayors, governors and former transportation officials, including a few Republicans, will join the president at the White House to endorse his push to spend the money as soon as possible to help boost the sagging economy.

But Christie showed just how tenuous that bipartisan commitment is in the current economic and political climate when he announced last week that New Jersey would no longer pay its share of the largest public works project in the country – a proposed rail tunnel between New York and New Jersey. Christie says that the tunnel’s cost – $8.7 billion a few months ago, but now $11 to $14 billion – are spinning out of control.

Christie charged that the escalating price tag for the tunnel would cost the state $2.5 billion more than expected, and he attacked the twenty-year old project as a waste of the taxpayer’s money. But he said Friday he would wait two weeks to make a final decision, after Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and a plane load of federal officials flew to Trenton and told the governor that New Jersey would lose $3 billion in federal funding if the tunnel project is shelved.




Imagine that.

A man who knows how to say NO to tainted and illegal funds requiring obeisance to DC.

And apparently a man who doesn't want his state to be subsumed into DC's Borg Assimilation Project.

P.S.
And a federal government trying to hold him hostage via withholding of further federal funds.

Pay to play, baby. You go along to get along with Obaka. Or you're cast aside.

I ask: who is Stronger? Obaka or Christie?

You have asked before, "if not Palin, then who?"

Chris Christie comes to mind... Along with Allen West, in any combination...

Problem is, Christie's said he won't run -- that he has his hands full with NJ. Perhaps there's next cycle.

Like I said, YOU asked... I answered...

If we don't get the very best this nation, and the GOP has to offer, and it's apparent that the *pickings* are slim, we are screwed...

West
Jindal
DeMint
Christie
Pense
Bachmann

In no particular order, but those are the best the GOP has...

Noticeably absent:
Palin - Cheerleader
Romney - (R)INO
Gingrich - (R)INO
McCain - (R)INO
Pawlenty - Not MY cup of tea at all

No one can say I don't put MY thoughts out there for ALL to see, and I put them out there EARLY, just as I did in the LAST election when I told ALL of you that McCain - Palin didn't stand a chance in hell...

No one listened then, probably won't now, but at least I take a stand..

Gotta say Christie, at least he has the balls to tell the truth!

The best way to balance your budget? Stop the spending.

Economize.

Be thrifty.

Taxes hurt the economy, which hurts the general welfare and should be considered a last resort, not a first one. Government isn't 'helping' when it spends itself into oblivion and takes it out on the citizenry in higher taxes: that just makes it less likely the debt can be repaid quickly, if at all.

This should be simple to understand.

Apparently it is too sophisticated for the Spenthrift Left to figure out this not spending money business. Mainly because they can extort it through taxes to pay for projects that never get done on budget, on time and consist of a lot of political pork and payoffs for cronies. That has got to end.

And it will.

Texas Fred, I agree with you wholeheartedly on those to run & to avoid. I've disliked Gingrich since '94 when he threw the wet blanket on the fired-up new young conservatives who'd been elected.
