    NJ’s Governor Christie stood up to the teachers’ unions to be sure, but there were other things he said and did that should have raised a signal flag for conservatives:

    This is one more warning:

    Christie says GOP should not support Missouri’s Akin

    Christie says GOP should not support Missouri's Akin - Conservative News

    Christie is an establishment Republican with little to suggest he is committed to conservative ideals. Should Akin lose, and his loss affects Senate votes in the years ahead, Christie’s support for a Democrat over a conservative Republican should be remembered by Tea Partiers if and when he runs for higher office.

    Nobody ever said that Christie was a die-hard Tea Party Conservative. The Republican party is a big tent. What democrat would dare to criticize his own party? Maybe Lieberman but we remember what happened to him.

    To whitehall: So you’re advocating the same old crap. Conservatives should vote for the Republican because he is better than the Democrat. That scam went out with John McCain and it ain’t coming back with Romney simply because this election is touted as the most important election in history. In order for that to be true Democrat scum will no longer get elected when Hussein is defeated. I see nothing that guarantees that result when Romney wins. Democrat scum got elected before Hussein came along, and they will get elected after he is gone. More than likely the sewer rats Hussein brought into government with him will remain after he leaves.

    In any event, the Senate is far more important than is the presidency in this election. Enough conservative senators can block anything whether the president is an establishment Republican or a Democrat.

    Dumping a system where senators work for the president is the real goal in this election. Senators not treating the president as though he can fire them will spread to governors and state legislators. In plain English screw the president and you screw the federal government as well.

    One thing coming out of this election supports my view. The media is less trusted than ever before. That lost trust is gone forever. In practical terms that means that in the future senators, governors, congressmen, etc. need not beg for support from the media, nor fear media displeasure. Better still, media scare tactics designed to pass garbage like bailouts, stimulus packages, tax increases to prevent economic Armageddon, and oppressive legislation will not work either. Going from wising up to media manipulation in elections to wising up to media legislation that impoverishes is only a small step.

    Damn Flanders, do you always look for a guarantee when you pull the lever in November? You must get disappointed a lot.

    That he's willing to buck the party is a plus, as far as I'm concerned.

    To whitehall: No. I’m just too experienced to pull the level for the same old crap.

    To whitehall: Not any more. I used to be every time I voted for the Republican because he was the lesser of the two evils. Now, no matter which lying sneak gets in there I will take pleasure in knowing I did not vote for him.

    To Kevin_Kennedy: Thank you. But just to be clear, I am a conservative not an establishment Republican. As soon as viable conservative party forms I’m there.

    My guess, Flanders, is that you are a dirty trickster democrat trying to subdue republican turnout or you are a quirky Ron Paul libertarian. Most conservatives try to get the best qualified republicans and when they can't they support the party that is closest to the standards they set for themselves. Democrats have drifted so far to the left that it is incomprehensible that an alleged "conservative" would be hyper-critical of a statement made by a moderate republican governor unless the motivation was to suppress republican turnout.

    If David Duke were the candidate, you'd support him based on your logic.

    To whitehall: My guess is that you are dirty trickster pulling the same old scam: Vote for the Republican because he is better than the Democrat. Either that, or you simply do not see that Republicans are just as guilty as the Democrats for everything that went wrong in this country since LBJ. If you do understand every establishment Republican candidate then you obviously want more of the same.

    Ronald Reagan was the only one who ever stood up to them and they hate him for it. Proof: They’ve been trying to undo everything RR accomplished; including reversing the result of the Cold War. Hussein’s open mic blunder to Russia’s President Medvedev was an impeachable offense, but have you heard Romney mention it in any context.

    Incidentally, I’ll wager that you cannot tell me what Romney would do about any one of the following:

    1. Global government.

    2. Foreign aid to known enemies.

    3. US membership in the UN.

    4. Repealing the XVI & XVII Amendments.

    5. Full-fledged amnesty for illegal aliens.

    6. Securing America’s borders.

    7. Funding the education industry.

    8. Hussein’s destructive executive orders.

    9. Fighting Peace Without Victory wars.

    10. Bipartisan legislation.

    11. Unnecessary bureaucracies.

    12. Bureaucratic mandates and regulations. (Think EPA and Department of Education for starters.)

    13. Bailouts, raising the debt ceiling again and again, stimulus packages.

    There is a lot more that is unknown about both Romney and Christie. The only thing that is known for certain is that they are governors from liberal Northeast states.



    To Toro: Your accusation is nonsensical as well as inaccurate. You cannot know how David Duke would govern. Romneycare is a clue as to how Romney will govern. You should know Hussein is infinitely worse than anything David Duke could possibly be, yet Duke is the archvillain in your world. It is your logic that is faulty.

    I can definitely understand why many boys here are disappointed with Christie


    Christie would not sign on to the Woman are Nothing but Breed Animals plank of their misogynist wing of the GOP.
