Not because Christie came into that hotel in Maryland and blew everyone away with a heavy dose of juicy conservative one-liners (as so many try to do at the yearly conference), but because he largely did no harm to himself with a group that, at least on the national level, has been a bit hesitant to get behind him.
Pretty soon we should be able to see how this “do no harm” strategy worked out, because the poll numbers that created the backdrop for this speech are not looking pretty…
The “big” 2016 news on Tuesday consisted of three new polls, Save Jerseyans, each showing Governor Chris Christie trailing Hillary “Hilldawg” Clinton by significant margins in three separate states.
Two aren’t surprising (albeit disappointing). One is much more concerning.
The joint venture of Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey, and Siena College in New York found the former Secretary of State leading New Jersey’s top Republican by 8 points, 10 points and 36 points, respectively. A dissenting Virginia survey from Christopher Newport University dropped Monday found a statistical tie with Clinton ahead 43% to 41%.
You’ve already heard what I have to say, Save Jerseyans, but this statement from Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini (R-Monmouth) reacting to the Rutgers Faculty’s Condi Rice protest is worth reading (and sharing) in its entirety:
“Condoleezza Rice is a trailblazer and a woman of extraordinary intelligence and diverse talents who has spent most of her career in academia. She was the first woman and first African-American to serve as provost of Stanford University and has served as a Stanford professor for more than three decades. That alone makes her beyond qualified to deliver the commencement speech at Rutgers or at any university.”
Anything that helps unmask these insufferably-hypocritical liberals in higher education is a good thing in the long-run. Condi is tough. She can take it.
Think about it: for at least two electoral cycles now, all we’ve heard about is the GOP’s alleged misogynistic “War on Women” raging across the fruited plain. The narratives goes that evil, rich, white Republican men between the ages of 35 and 65 want to sneak into young women’s bedrooms in the dark of night to sew their legs shut, steal their birth control pills, and brand crucifixes on their foreheads with hot pokers purchased by Koch Industries and Fox News.
Pretty accurate, right? Thanks a bunch for tacitly admitting it’s all a giant, heaping, stinking load of crap, RU intelligentsia… CONTINUE READING….
More and more we are reading and hearing information that leads us to believe Hillary Clinton may not run in 2016.
Of course, every politician always wants to keep all his/her options open.
And, if nothing else Hillary is an adept politician. So, don’t expect Mrs. Clinton to show her hand anytime soon – not if she doesn’t have to.
But rumors persist about her health. These all surround the blood clot that she suffered as well as concerns about a possible brain tumor or minor stroke. On top of all that, everybody agrees that she seems worn out.
The media (including conservative media) is eagerly searching for cracks in the support of Governor Chris Christie’s RGA chairmanship, Save Jerseyans, but most members have offered full-throated backing to their embattled Garden State colleague including Rick Perry of Texas during a weekend Fox News appearance:
Will Governor Perry feel this generous in 12-18 months if/when he launches a presidential bid of his own? Time tells all tales…
His detractors will think this is ironic; his fans will say it’s appropriate.
Republican Governors Association Chairman Governor Chris Christie is in Washington, D.C. on this unusually-balmy Friday afternoon, Save Jerseyans, addressing the RGA’s communications school seminar held for the benefit of press secretaries working for Republican governors.
Say what you want about Karl Rove, Save Jerseyans, but he’s the last guy in our coalition to engineer not one, but two national electoral victories.
He still knows how to cut an opponent to pieces. Case in point, here he is on Fox News Sunday demolishing former Governor Ted Strickland (D-OH), a veteran Clinton hack who has plenty of time on his hands and has been using it to slander Governor Christie on national television.
You might want to wrap yourself in one of those Gallagher anti-watermelon splatter tarps before watching this…
No one from the Clinton camp made Chris Christie’s subordinates close the G.W. Bridge’s Fort Lee lanes, Save Jerseyans.
There is mounting evidence that they’re doing everything within their power (which is considerable, by the way) to pile on and make the New Jersey Governor politically radioactive ahead of 2016. She’s unambiguously the one with the most to benefit. And from all outward appearances, the full might of the Obama Democrat establishment is lining up behind Miss Inevitable…
Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman is by all accounts a good guy, but he has no right to be angry at the very legitimate criticisms leveled against him for his infantile display of maliciousness after this past week’s NFC Championship game.
For those unfamiliar, Sherman made arguably the play of the game in the closing minutes when he broke up a pass from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, intended for wide receiver Michael Crabtree, resulting in an interception which secured the win for the Seahawks.
That should have been what everyone was talking about Monday morning.
