Gov. Chris Christie’s Ego: Bigger Than His Waistline

We should have realized something was up back in August, when Chris Christie gave the keynote address at the GOP’s convention. Do you remember that speech?

If not, here’s a little reminder from a liberal at the Daily Beast, Michael Tomasky:

Well, that was a good speech for Chris Christie, wasn’t it?

That was kind of shocking, actually. Of course he mentioned Mitt Romney. A good whopping five or six times. But it sure took him a while. Rachel Maddow just said this was a 2,600-word speech in which he didn’t mention Romney until 1,800 words in. And as soon as he mentioned Romney, he went back to talking about himself.

Many wondered at the time if Gov. Christie realized that he was coming off as one of those “It’s all about me” types, not unlike Barack Hussein Obama.

I didn’t fault Gov. Christie for sucking up to Obama after the hurricane. He would have agreed to serve as Barack’s body man for a week in exchange for promises of lots of federal money pouring into New Jersey, so I wasn’t surprised that he facilitated last week’s ridiculous Obama dress-up charade, allowing B. Hussein to look “presidential.” Andrew Cuomo didn’t have to play along. He’s a democrat. so he doesn’t have to worry about Obama playing politics with FEMA money, which as a proud graduate of the Cook County Sleaze Academy, he certainly will.

So even if we can excuse last week’s Jersey Shore photo op, how do we to explain Christie’s performance yesterday, falling all over himself to tell the heartwarming story of his tearful reconciliation with Bruce Springsteen, courtesy of the One? For the answer, we need only look back to that convention speech. It’s all about Chris. Something offended his ginormous ego, and he’s out to stick it to somebody, in this case, Mitt Romney.

Perhaps after Obama is beaten like a drum, and driven from the White House, along with his repellant wife, Chris and Moochelle can start a fat farm/rehab center for recovering narcissists.

Hurricane Sandy Gives Lame Stream Media a Temporary Excuse for Benghazi Blackout

Play

Before Hurricane Sandy made landfall, the tv geniuses who analyze and enlighten us speculated about the impact that the storm would have on the One’s re-election prospects. Would he benefit from looking “presidential?” Would Gov. Romney “strike the right tone” in the aftermath?

I’m not sure whether it will help or hurt either candidate, but I know one group who should be breathing a sigh of relief is the national media. They know that every day more Americans catch on to their role in Obama’s 2008 con game. The genuine article, the cold, calculating, crypto-Communist community organizer is a far cry from the pragmatic, pro-active, post-racial problem solver that they presented as this rising star “Barack Obama.” Still, they hoped that they could keep up the con for 8 or 9 more days. Then, as we heard on last Sunday’s show, Denver reporter Kyle Clark asked Barack Obama some very embarrassing questions about what happened in Benghazi on 9/11/12; specifically, whether the 4 murdered Americans were denied help during the attack, and whether it’s fair to tell Americans we have to wait for the results of an investigation that will completed after the election.

Here’s the non-answer, and the followup from the dogged reporter:

Then over the weekend, Charles Woods, father of murdered Navy Seal, Tyrone Woods, began to speak out about his son’s death. (video in link)

Then came Sandy, giving those unofficial members of the Obama campaign, sometimes called the “national media,” an opportunity to shout questions at Mitt Romney about how he dares to support the concept of federalism contained in our Constitution, or to hold the foolish belief that the federal government isn’t the answer to every problem.

This sort of predictable charade will go on a couple of more days, but the Benghazi questions are not going away, and Obama can only do so many stand ups in Red Cross offices before people start realizing that the only reason they can watch endless footage of the misery and destruction wrought by the storm is that they don’t have jobs.

The suffering people on the East Coast have been in my prayers, and so has our country. I remain confident that next week our long national nightmare will begin to end, notwithstanding the best efforts of the Lame Stream Media.
