Ann Coulter offered up a few good points in her CPAC interview with Sean Hannity, Save Jerseyans, including a critique of the mob mentality of those conservatives going after Mitch McConnell in this year’s Kentucky Primary.
Fox News is carrying a live-stream of CPAC 2014 on Thursday, Save Jerseyans, including Governor Chris Christie’s much anticipated address at 11:45 a.m. Today’s speech comes on the heels of a brand new WashPo/ABC poll which found the RGA chieftain’s popularity down significantly relative to the rest of the probable 2016 presidential race field.
The political world is anxiously waiting to hear what Governor Chris Christie says – and how the audience reacts – when he addresses the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on Thursday at approximately 11:45 a.m.
We’re kicking off our Election 2014 Senate coverage by sharing my interview with Brian D. Goldberg, Save Jerseyans, a businessman originally from Monmouth County who made his money in the concrete business and who now hopes to bring private sector common sense to Capitol Hill.
He’s one of five GOP nominee hopefuls including former U.S. candidate and Reagan campaign staffer Jeffrey Bell, Monmouth businessman Rich Pezzullo, retired FBI agent Robert “Turk” Turkavage, and Ramapo Professor Murray Sabrin.

Governor Chris Christie will deliver his FY 2015 budget address on Tuesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., Save Jerseyans, a speech which pre-released excerpts suggestcould amp up the battle over tax and pension reforms in Trenton.
This year’s proposal is $1.6 billion bigger than the FY 2014 budget driven in large part by a heftier pension payment, one that’s larger than the contributions of the last five governors combined; the Governor’s address notes that “94 percent of that increase –virtually all of it — is taken up by three things: pensions, health benefits, and debt.”
Will Democrats cooperate with the Governor’s pitch or dig in and try to score points against a wounded Republican opponent?
You can watch LIVE below the fold and find out beginning at 2:00 p.m… we also have text of the Governor’s address as prepared for delivery…
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…
Why is it that the politicians who want to impose the most rules and regulations on the rest of us also seem the least willing to follow the rules themselves? Arrogance? Ideology? Some combination of the two? I’ve always suspected so. I call it the “Animal Farm” principle.
Some pigs are just more equal than others, right?
Check out what a New York City TV reporter found one of our region’s biggest pigs (Mayor Bill De Blasio) doing only hours after proposing a “safe streets initiative” for the Big Apple:
If Governor Chris Christie’s presidential prospects have been damaged by the Bridgegate scandal and associated investigations, you wouldn’t know it by the amount of television cameras at the Town Hall Meeting in Port Monmouth this morning. Middletown officials estimate the crowd was about 500 people. There was easily 50 members of the media including reporters, photographers and videographers.
There was no swagger from the Governor today. No fist pumps, no snazzy introductory video, no in your face insults to hostile questioners. Christie dodged the only hostile question he heard. The Youtube moment came not from an idiot or thin skinned reporter, but from a three year old girl who said her house is still broken.
Bridgegate, the controversy over the September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge that has spurred investigations by the U.S. Attorney and a Special Legislative Committee never came up. The people who came to today’s meeting would gladly trade places with the Bergen County residents who were inconvenienced by traffic jams for four days. They been without their homes for 16 months.
Governor Chris Christie was referring to his formidable but shrinking waistline, Save Jerseyans, although with everything going on right now, he could’ve just as easily been talking about 10 other things…
As we pointed out after last month’s marathon Bridgegate presser, unlike President Obama, he’s willing to stand in front of constituents for extended periods of time and take the heat… and now he’s doing it with zero media cover:
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.
