Love Chris Christie! He's a true patriot that knew how to appropriately blockade and dismantle the 'anything we riot about, we get' thugery that was left in the wake of Corslime! As a result our state is a much more difficult breeding ground for liberal politics gone astray. I hope he makes it to the national spotlight. He has great plans and the leadership to execute them.

Maybe, just maybe, since his parents were imigrants and his father worked his way through Rutgers, he appreciated the opportunitythis country presented and had a love for Christopher Columbus. But what the heck, you probably don't get it anyway!
Sandra Casale August 29, 2012 at 06:50 AM
Come on he blew it.........tried to make it about the fat governor from Jersey
Ricky August 29, 2012 at 08:20 AM
He had his chance to say no to higher tolls to cross the Hudson but had little sympathy for the average working guy and said yes it will cost even more. He had his chance to say yes to equal rights for any state citizen that wanted to obtain a marriage license but he had little sympathy for those individuals and vetoed that bill.

Pretty sad to see all of you talking about the looks of the Gov and what his parents named him and not about the message he delivered. People who need to put others down most of the time are unhappy with themselves.
Larry Reid August 29, 2012 at 10:12 AM
Quit complaining, wake up your boyfriend and get your change ready for the toll
Chris August 29, 2012 at 11:48 AM
He's not fat. He's my governor.

I'm sure he's glad to have government paid for health care for his heart disease and diabetes treatments
Harriet August 29, 2012 at 11:58 AM
So uh, what are you? A health nut?
Jack Mahoffer August 29, 2012 at 12:34 PM
I love that the Republican symbol is an elephant
Bronson August 29, 2012 at 12:51 PM
and the Democrats are the Ass....whats that say about them
Al Scala August 29, 2012 at 01:12 PM
Relating an elephant to a Republican, is insulting to the elephant.
Hookerman August 29, 2012 at 01:38 PM
Does anyone else wonder if Christie is secretly hoping that Obama will win so he'll have an open shot in 2016?
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:43 PM
Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I'd be very interested to see a race between a Democrat and Chris Christie, two smart people.

Chris Christie's speech last night was excellent. When the speech was over, the only thought I had was that the wrong Republican has the nomination right now. Christie should be running for President. He is obviously setting himself up for 2016 or 2020. Unless Romney can deliver a good speech Thursday, I'm not sure he's going to win, which will certainly open the door for Christie in '16. Mind you, I wasn't a big Christie fan, until last night.,,

When libs have nothing to go on, they always always always resort to personal attacks. It's all that they have!
S.G. August 29, 2012 at 02:44 PM
Ms. Carpenter, Gov. Christie's parents were not immigrants.
S.G. August 29, 2012 at 02:51 PM
When Governor Christie reached the point where he was talking about his family background, I realized that he was campaigning for himself, not Mr. Romney. At least he kept his Jersey-shore persona under wraps so that we didn't have to put up with more kidding from out-of-staters. He was smart enough not to tout the Jersey comeback that he was trying to sell us, knowing that it would be ripped apart by the national press. I have been trying to convince myself that NJ should be honored that our governor was chosen for the keynote speech, but failed. I can't see any way that NJ will benefit from his appearance.
jim judd August 29, 2012 at 03:00 PM
According to Politifact he spoke in 1/2 truths ,thats twice as good as Romney
Maggie August 29, 2012 at 03:22 PM
Not need (sic) proper grammar either I see.
Maggie August 29, 2012 at 03:28 PM
Yes, and republicans are always true ladies and gentlemen. Love the story of the GOP delegates throwing peanuts at an African American camera operator shouting "This is how we feed animals.". Just leaves me with such a warm and fuzzy feeling. Not.
TCG August 29, 2012 at 04:03 PM
FYI...In his speech last night, Christie said the words "I" 47 times, "me" 11 times, "my" 7 times and "Romney" 8 times. Hmmm...cue up the only song he knows..."Born to Run." Love him or hate him, he is doing everthing possible to ensure Romney loses, certain that sets him up to be the nominee in 2016. The trouble is...(I say this with no insult intended)...America has not elected a fat president since the dawn of television. And he's not just fat, he's downright mean. Some in Jersey love that attitude...but it doesn't sell between the Delaware River and the Rocky Mountains.
Goodfella August 29, 2012 at 05:38 PM
Really Maggie ?????
Maggie August 29, 2012 at 06:28 PM
Yes, really Goodfella. If you're going to post about the ignorant and lazy, then don't be ignorant and lazy in your post.
Maggie August 29, 2012 at 06:30 PM
So right TCG. Christie would not go over well in the midwest or the south. But if he's in it, it would make for a lively primary. You know they would try to provoke him at every turn.
Virginia Hammer September 02, 2012 at 03:00 PM
Exactly right, Mr. Wayne. Unrealistic to so blithely ignore the tax-benefit needs (it takes $RESOURCES to ennact efficient social change for ALL NJ's population) of only the 1% in Morris or Bergen Counties. Smoke-screened "corruption clean-up" (hmmmmm ...) or not. - What about a lil' public service called: Public Education? Hmmmm, Mr. C., so far. Now or never, Mr. C. Pls. 'pony-up" to the PEOPLE, not just the 1% you appear to be "in bed with." "In bed" w/ the frightened, hoarding 1%? The "rich?" I'm afraid I'd call THAT: corruption. (Do they ACTUALLY create jobs? TRULY invest in U.S. job/green entrepreneurial development? Or sock it away in the Caymans? Hmmmmm ....) PS: My wonderful father, Frederick S. Hammer, was No. 2 of all Chase Bank - Head of Amer. Colnsumer Ops. - in the 1980s. I come from those smart, hard-working types. But they never were allowed to squirrel-away as much of what they earned (or just garnered from U.S. supercorp., apparently-somewhat-expoitative investments), as they do now.

Dogfish Head Brewery is a brewing company based in Milton, Delaware founded by Sam Calagione. It opened in 1995 and produces 75,000 <a href=http://www.beerbanter.com>barrels</a href> of beer annually. Dogfish Head has been a rapidly growing brewery - it grew nearly 400% in between 2003 and 2006. The brewery was featured prominently in the documentary <a href=http://www.beerbanter.com>Beer</a href>Wars. It is the subject of the currently-airing Discovery Channel series Brew Masters, which premiered Sunday, November 21, 2010. The brewery takes its name from Dogfish Head, Maine where founder Sam Calagione spent summers as a child. http://www.beerbanter.com

I have 100% no clue as to why one "Noor A Neaz Shuvo" has chosen to respond to "politix" by going on about Dogfish Beer, but: Noor, if Dogfish would care to contribute beer to Midlantic's next event, you'll get good publicity and a tax deduction. MTC is working w/ the people, not just apparently mostly "beefing around," (mostly @ the behest of, we've observed in NJ, the 1% -- "True corruption, anyone?") like some (well, let's face it, almost ALL politicians simply do that) I could name with the initials "C.C." -- C you all, VCH & Midlantic Theatre Co., Renaissance Newark
