Christie lays out rules of engagement in NM

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Did Gov. Chris Christie go overboard by devouring a heckler during Wednesday’s Sandy anniversary tour, Save Jerseyans?

“If you give it, you’re getting it back,” Christie responded when asked about the exchange during a Thursday campaign stop with ally Susana Martinez in New Mexico:

Christie on Hickox’s Quarantine: “If it’s good enough for our men and women in uniform…”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Yessss! More unassailable logic (and strong words directed at the Obama Administration) from Governor Chris Christie during Wednesday’s multi-county Sandy anniversary tour as the media continues to entertain the extended-temper tantrum of nurse Kaci “the Brat” Hickox:

Conservative Group Passes “Judgment” on Belgard

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

The first NJ-03 TV spot from Crossroad GPS (501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation associated with Karl Rove’s American Crossroads) was tame compared to this bone-crusher of an ad that hit airwaves today from American Action Network, Save Jerseyans, an organization founded by former MN U.S. Senator Norm Coleman, and aimed at burying Aimee Belgard (D-Central Jersey) in her losing battle with Republican Tom MacArthur.

“Judgment” draws on images of a troubled Obama era world and focuses on Belgard’s time on Edgewater Park Township Committee (prior to joining the Burlington County freeholder board in 2012) when she voted to lay off policemen and hike or bring into being 111 municipal fees.

The independent expenditure group plans to spend $670,000 NJ-03 between this ad and a 15-second version of “Judgment” (the full TV version is below the fold):

Christie on NBC: “CDC was behind on this”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

There are a lot of lies floating around out there right now about Governor Chris Christie, Save Jerseyans, lately on both the Ebola and RGA fronts, but we’ll continue to police the B.S. as best we can. 

Of course, Gov. Christie didn’t need any help from us this morning on the Today Show:

Ebola Czar: “Overpopulation” is #1 Concern

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

And I suppose Ebola is the result of global warming?

I’m losing my patience with these morons, Save Jerseyans! While Gov. Chris Christie is trying to keep us all alive, we’re learning that Obama-appointed Ebola Czar Ron Klain has different priorities (from 2008):

Christie on Fox News Sunday: “CDC eventually will come around to our point of view on this”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

christie fox news sundayGovernor Chris Christie once again managed to place himself at the center of the national conversation this week, Save Jerseyans, but this time it had nothing to do with RGA campaigning, lane closures or assorted other Christie mainstream media topics de jure.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, the Big Guy defended his decision (in conjunction with Andrew Cuomo) to institute a mandatory Ebola quarantine, a step to which he boldly (and characteristically) insists “the CDC eventually will come around to our point of view” even if the first quarantined individual feels inconvenienced (rolls eyes)…

Christie Rocks Pancake House for Hogan

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Democrats are busy playing defense with two weeks left to go before America votes, Save Jerseyans, but Governor Chris Christie’s RGA tried to expand its target map on Tuesday by sending the chairman to a pancake house in deep blue Maryland  (he was in DC for a Chamber of Commerce keynote) to stump for gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan, a Republican who appears to be closing the gap.

And no, before you ask, he never touched a pancake…

Christie’s Epic Public Union Smackdown

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Regardless of how you feel about the hiring of Joey D’s kid, Save Jerseyans, you’ve gotta love last night’s Christie Christie radio smackdown of a troll public sector union caller who called to take on the Governor and walked away dragging his tail between his legs when Christie let loose an epic rant on the public pension/benefits system

We don’t get to see much of this guy anymore. I miss him:

Christie, Brownback Scream for Ice Cream (VIDEO)

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

The latest polling suggests that Gov. Sam Brownback (R-KS) may yet overcome a tough challenge from Democrat Paul Davis in the Sunflower State, Save Jerseyans, so Gov. Chris Christie dropped by on Monday to try and lend a hand… and eat some stuff that’s not on his diet at Freddy’s Frozen Custard in Wichita:

Christie to NAACP: “Sinners” in Both Parties

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Governor Chris Christie’s Saturday NAACP talk hit on familiar themes, Save Jerseyans, ones which he’s expected to carry into his presidential campaign with the expectation of echoing (repeating might be too big of a climb) the electoral breadth of his 2013 Garden State victory. “I don’t think second chances are just the domain of Democrats or Republicans,” Christie told the membership luncheon attendees gathered at the Hilton Parsippany. “Because from my perspective, we have sinners and wrongdoers aplenty in both parties.”

Here’s the full speech (it runs a little over half an hour):

More at Stake Beyond Donovan/Saudino Drama

By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog

saudino donovan bergenNever wanting for a dull day in Bergen County, Save Jerseyans, video surfaced over the weekend featuring Republican Sheriff Mike Saudino appearing to endorse Democrat Jim Tedesco and his running mates in the upcoming election.  

Now the sheriff is backtracking claiming he has made no endorsement in the race. 

It’s no secret that Saudino and Donovan have had a rocky relationship (at best) for some time now; Saudino was particularly angry after Donovan refused to sign the contract negotiated with the sheriff’s officers.  However, Saudino has also repeatedly said at BCRO meetings that his differences with the county executive are a matter of policy, not personal, and that they are both working to help the citizens of Bergen County.

It’s critical that that work occur over the next four weeks.
