Chris Christie Sums Himself Up
Liberty has no more vociferous enemy than New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who shamelessly exploited media-driven Newtown hysteria to ram through an unconstitutional assault on gun rights that has resulted in the imprisonment of veterans for happening to possess empty magazines. Cuomo’s career in collectivist tyranny goes back at least to his days as HUD Secretary, when he openly boasted about forcing banks to make race-based mortgage loans to people who would not pay them back; this policy resulted in the economic crash of 2008, from which America still has not recovered.
The Republican Party has no more treacherous enemy than New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who was allowed to use the 2012 RNC Keynote Address as an opportunity to blow his own horn. He repaid this favor by possibly tipping the election to Obama with his fulsome praise, evidently in return for federal money, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. During the recent jihad against gun rights, he assisted Democrats by denouncing the NRA as “reprehensible.”
Having provided some background, I present the quote of the week:
“I’m not much different from Andrew Cuomo. I probably agree with him on 98% of the issues.”
Christie is not a moderate Republican. He is a moonbat Republican, like Colin Powell. The GOP cannot become an effective resistance party until it rids itself of the enemy within. If it is not willing to do this, it is of no use (except to Democrats) and must be left to die the disgraceful death it has been earning.
