No, Save Jerseyans, you can’t put a price on life. Ignorance? It comes pretty cheap in America 2013.
The following video isn’t from Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central or The Onion. It’s for realsies. Specifically, the YouTube short emedded below was the winning entry in a HHS-sponsored contest designed to reinforce sagging public confidence in the (Un)affordable Care Act; the featured young lady offers her pro-Obamacare rendition of the popular song “Price Tag.”
No word yet as to what Governor Chris Christie will announce today at 1:45 p.m., Save Jerseyans, other than that it’s a significant “personnel” announcement, meaning it pertains to the executive branch (as opposed to a judicial nomination). Click here to read my recap when it’s over.
Once every month, Chris Christie gets behind a radio microphone and takes your questions. Monday’s appearance is the Governor’s first since his reelection landslide. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to interact directly with one of America’s most dynamic politicians. Watch a live stream right here beginning at 7:00 p.m.
“The Simpsons” threw a full-on liberal tantrum last night, Save Jerseyans, and the primary target was none other than New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
The big slam came when the show’s reoccurring Arnold Schwarzenegger character said the Garden State GOP’er and top presidential prospect “thinks GOP means ‘Gravy On Pancakes.’”
FOX’s long-running cartoon comedy makes no secret of its disdain for Republicans but last night’s entire episode turned out to be a particularly glaring example. Creator Matt Groening has taken other shots at Christie in the past; this little number is from 2012:
I’m not about to start writing the network or stop watching FOX altogether, folks. I am, however, very much concerned that some Republicans think Chris Christie will somehow earn a rare free pass from the media should he win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
That’d be a dangerously wrong assumption. Bart Simpson just told the Big Guy to eat his shorts on national television. Springfield is going “blue” for Hilldawg next time around and there’s nothing we can do about it other than to plan accordingly. Not even Chris Christie can make the media/entertainment establishment love us.
Obamacare is a failure, it’s always been a failure, and it will not succeed. It just won’t. Obamacare is wrong. It’s a failure. It’s the most extraordinary overreach of government power in the history of our country. And, it’s being run by people who’ve never run anything. So why are we surprised it’s failing?
Christie also waved the bipartisanship banner yet again, blaming many of Washington’s problems on “absolutists” in government:
Senator Rand Paul visited the Special Report with Bret Baier all-star panel on Monday night, Save Jerseyans, where he fielded a variety of questions that contemplated his expected 2016 presidential candidacy for the GOP nomination.
Among the highlights? Rand said Governor Chris Christie harbors many “moderate” positions but expressed his opinion that there’s “room for moderates in our party.” Big tent talk with a not-so-subtle swipe… quite a rhetorical feat! Christie told Jake Tapper on Election Eve that he’s no moderate. Rand doesn’t care.
Watch and awe:
I love Rand Paul on the domestic front, folks. Then he starts expounding on foreign policy and my head hits the desk. Time will tell whether he gains traction and, in the event he manages to make it all the way, if the big chair has the same sobering effect on him that it does on every foreign policy idealist who’s ever graced it.
Set aside for a moment the clearly unconstitutional dimensions of Obama’s latest power grab. I thought these plans were grossly inadequate, Congressman Pallone! How could the American people want, and their President move to protect, plans which you’ve repeatedly told us are tantamount to scams on American health care consumers? Here’s hoping Megyn Kelly is already calling him for comment as I’m typing this post…
