(Note: Search function not working) Full Title: "Chris Christie lashes out at 'know-nothing disgruntled Romney staffers' who criticised him for refusing to attend campaign rally with Mitt after Hurricane Sandy"

Chris Christie has been under fire from Republican insiders ever since he he performed a U-turn and started praising Barack Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy last week.

And now the governor of New Jersey has lashed out at anonymous aides to Mitt Romney who have criticised him for refusing to attend fundraising events for the GOP presidential candidate.

The outspoken figure, a strong supporter of Romney over the past year, described his critics as 'know-nothing, disgruntled Romney supporters' who did not respect the duty he owed to the people of his state......

Watch for Christie to leave the GOP and become a Dem very soon. I could see it coming from his RNC speech, almost fell asleep hearing it..no fire in his belly, nothing..it was ALL about him..its one thing after a disaster happens to meet with the President, but he was practically fawning over him..guess he was desperate to get that shout out from Springsteen, now he can sleep happy

Go stuff another 20 Big Macs down your fat mouth slob. You helped cost Romney the election by providing the media a soundbite they could ride for days showing how “presidential” and “bipartisan” the Phony in Chief is. I give Bloomberg more credit than you Gov. Hippo. He told Obama the timing was not right for a visit. You could have done the same and said “I’m too busy for a photo op. Please just send help.” No one would have faulted you for that. But instead you had to start your re-election campaign at the expense of Romney’s candidacy. You’re dead to the GOP now. Don’t even THINK of running for president in 2016. Your candidacy won’t even last 60 days if you do. Pig.

If the exit polls are to be believed, Christie was nothing more than a stage prop in the event that allowed Obie to save his floundering campaign.

I’ll confess I lost some ‘respect’ for Christie after he revealed he “wepted” after a phone call from Springstein (apparently his idol).

Christie’s speech sucked and probably LOST Mitt votes. Then, his gay lovefest with the Punk last week. What a cretin! Go to hell, Chris. You’ll find it at any Democrat HQ. Bob

That fat turdball. He SHOULD have been holding Obamas feet to the fire. Where is fema? People are still wandering without foor and power.

He was never anything but a loudmouth one-trick pony. He’s big at tough talk to pushy teachers in townhall meetings and thats about it. But otherwise he is no conservative. And he’s a big supporter of Islam.

You mean his duty of kissing Obama's butt during a photo op, doing endless radio and TV interviews, and tweeting all day long?

Christie was vetted by Romney for VP & then he chose Paul Ryan.

It was in Christie's best interest to have Romney lose. He had designs on running for President in 2016. Ann Coulter & a few others were behind this idea.

With Romney out of the picture - it opened a path for Christie's run.

Too bad he took the 'poison pill' by kissing Obama's butt. His political career as a Republican is over. He may even try running as a Democrat.

Christie was probably upset that Mitt did not pick him to be his VP..if Romney had picked Christie that would have been the worst decision EVER. I was very happy with Paul Ryan he did an amazing job..Christie other than getting into fights with union thugs, is pretty much liberal..he cuddles with Muslims and he looks out for his own aspirations..you could tell that right away from his RNC speech..hardly mentioned Romney at all, hardly went after Obama, it was all about him

The FACT is that his state WAS GOING TO GET the MONEY ANYWAYS- even if he did nothing- yet he chose to slit hte throats of the GOP and grovel at the feet of dear leader.

I NEVER EVER trusted christie and it blew my mind that the right waqs clamouring for him to run as their candidate and infact beggign him to run- Mitt was bad, but good golly, if christie had becoem president, we mgiht as well have hired Arlen spector as president had he lived- there woudl be NO difference between the two- they both are ‘say anything do anything self serving rhinos’ and it took a storm to brign otu hte true colors of christie for all to see, and now again we see his self serving me me me attitude as he lashes out at hte GOP further handing hte democrats victory and somethign to crow about- He’s calling the GOP ‘know nothing’s? He’s the clueless one and an unproffessional one at that- like someoen said- he’s nothign more than a schoolyard bully- all bark and no bite who wnet and hid behind hte president’s skirt when the storm hit

Christie CHOSE to throw trhe GOP under the bus- he was goign to get htem oney ANYWAYS- however, he saw an oppotunity to pad his own popularity with the liberals in NJ by coddling and cuddling with the president knowing full well that he was abotu to ruin any slight chance romney had of winning- and he can act like the saint in the hogpen, but he’s simply unaware that he’s just another swine just like htose he’s sourrounded hismelf with

So you’re going to vote for Hillary Clinton or Biden in 2016 over Christy? C’mon - if anything a guy like Christy can get Dems to jump to vote Republican than a Ryan can. Face it there are more moderate Republicans in the party than Tea Party affiliated. Plus we put in way more money. So stop thinking the “our way or the highway” and face reality - if we don’t compromise together then a broken and divided Republican Party will have a super tough run. While I am a Rubio fan, I do see Christy as being the moderates choice and winning the 2016 nomination.

After McCain and Romney, all those (Ann included) insisted we run a ‘moderate’ nominee in order to win do not have high credibility. In my book, at least.

Christie did what I would imagine him doing at a press conference just like the way it happened. He shot his big mouth off faster than he could think forward to what will this do in the long run and he missed it big time. I knew his big belligerent mouth would eventually spit out not just a foul ball but a homerun for the other team. All he had to do was say thank you AH or something simple but no, he did essentially the big nasty for Obama. Then today I see the whole table of A$$ kissers praising Obama. I am so sick from this election cycle I can hardly stand it. In Flushington State, we now have pot, homosexual bondage I mean marriage, the very liberal Jay Insley is the new governor. Every tax issue has passed making my taxes go up. Obama care is about to become the law of the land forever. I’m speechless!!!
I guess I need a joint.
Incredible.

All the ‘big tent’ is just going to compete for the same voting blocks with the Dems.

It is not going to make up in numbers to those who are going to leave the ‘big tent’ GOP.

When Christie was first elected Governor, my husband spoke to a coworker who worked with Christie in the DA’s office. Said he was an opportunist and a backstabber. It was always all about him. Didn’t want to believe it at then time, but it appears to be the case.

There are thousands of people all around me that still don’t have power. That is unacceptable! Christie is useless. His fat rear should have been next to Romney because he wasn’t doing Jersey any good anyway. I did not vote for him in the primary. A lot of people voted for him because they said that he was electable. That always works out doesn’t it!

Blaming Christie might be fun, but it’s not realistic. If all it took was for a RINO governor to do a photo op with Obama during a disaster to sink Romney’s campaign, then Romney’s campaign was already a failure. A winning campaign could have easily brushed that off, even with the media working against them.

But instead you had to start your re-election campaign at the expense of Romney’s candidacy. You’re dead to the GOP now. Don’t even THINK of running for president in 2016. Your candidacy won’t even last 60 days if you do. Pig.

Amen to that. He sacrificed Romney’s political future for his own. The funny thing is now he won’t be respected by either side. He’s dead to us and to the Dems he’s a turncoat who will never be fully trusted....idiot

Go ahead and compromise all you want and turn the Republican party into a Christian Democrat party, like they have in Europe. Then, when you get elected, you can try to offer the people enough freebies so that they will keep you in office for a few years before they put the socialists back in.

Have fun with that. I’ll be waiting until it’s finally time to rid ourselves of these commies and take our country back.

Not a word about the fact that FEMA and his own state have thousands of people still out in the cold, with another NE’ster bearing down on them.

Not one word. Not one word about the Red Cross either. I wonder what the Salvation Army has been doing down there. I watched the two respond to a situation in Manhattan once - night and day difference. The SA had blankets, sandwiches, clothes, and people to pray with families. Red Cross had cookies and coffee, and handing out envelopes to those not affected for a donation.

When it all wound up, the SA disappeared almost before you could thank them. Red Cross had their publicist out there taking pictures.
