You might think Republicans would learn their lesson regarding RINOs, considering the way W set off the USA’s tailspin into unsustainable debt and thoroughly discredited the GOP brand, McCain blew an election that cost America its future, and Krispy Kreme Christie tipped the 2012 election to Obama by knifing Mitt Romney in the back after Hurricane Sandy. However,
Romney, whose supporters and aides were furious that Christie complimented the president’s response to Hurricane Sandy, has given the maximum contribution possible, $3,800, to the New Jersey governor’s reelection bid, a source familiar with the donation said.
Meanwhile, Eric Cantor, the House majority leader who pushed to get the Sandy aid bill to the floor for a vote after it was tabled by House Speaker John Boehner, has added his name to a Christie fundraiser in Virginia on Thursday night and hosted by Gov. Bob McDonnell, the source said.
American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas calls the pork-bloated aid bill a “mini stimulus”; that is, it is government spending for its own sake, the very problem that has crippled the economy.
Romney is either still a RINO himself, or too absurdly nice to take part in politics. Cantor is a sellout and a weasel.
As for Christie, he has openly admitted that he agrees with Andrew Cuomo “on 98% of the issues.” With his history of redistributing wealth by deliberately forcing banks to make bad loans, imposing draconian restrictions on Second Amendment liberties, and forcing Catholic hospitals to perform abortions, Cuomo could easily pass for a Marxist dictator.
At least CPAC preserved some integrity by not inviting Krispy Kreme.
Meanwhile, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) defended Christie over the CPAC snub in an interview, saying it “shows how narrow-minded these people are.”
In case that wasn’t insulting enough to get the message across, King continued:
“This just shows the insanity of too many people in the Republican movement,” he said.
I thought insanity was doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results — like tolerating RINOs and expecting the Republican Party to amount to anything more than a convenient foil for our Democrat rulers.
