Christie: I campaigned harder than anyone for Romney
New York Post ^ | 6:22 PM, November 7, 2012 | By DAVID K. LI

Posted on 11/07/2012 5:34:38 PM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie -- Mitt Romney's surrogate-turned-President Obama fan -- bristled today at suggestions that his embrace of the Democratic incumbent cost Republicans the White House....

When asked what went wrong for Romney last night, Christie deadpanned: “He didn’t get enough votes.”

“I’m not a pundit, I’m an office holder,” Christie said.

Christie showed extremely poor campaign judgment, but if the electorate can be so significantly swayed by brief optics, it doesn’t bode well for a candidate appealing to principle.

“I’m not a pundit, I’m an office holder,” Christie said.

If he gets primaried, it's quite possible the order of items in that sentence might change.

Giant RINO undermines nominee so that he can run in 2016. Since McCain was the republican most hated by republicans and Romney was the republican second most hated by republicans, next time the GOP will try Christie (if Lindsey Graham is not available). Another Northeast RINO. When they lose and we have four years of Hllary or Biden they will again blame the conservatives in the party.

Nope. Before hurricane Christie both Gallup and Ras had Romney up five. After Christie, err I mean Sandy, he fell back to tied and then plus 1.

Get out of our party Christie.

You gave the President a platform right when he needed it the most. We had him on the run and you threw him a lifeline. I’m not saying you should have been mean to man, I’m just saying you didn’t need to walk around hand-in-hand with Obama while he preened for the cameras. One of our main arguments was that he was bipartisan and you sure fixed that up for him, didn’t you?

Bottom line: You were one of our stars and you killed us with your star power.

Again, get out of our party, Christie.

That's not what the national polls said. Romney was leading by a point in the RCP average, quite consistently, until the storm hit. After the storm hit, Romney was down by a point in the RCP average of the national polls. He saw a 3 point negative swing in Pew and WaPo polls.

Unfortunately for your thesis, it is contradicted by actual facts. Interviews conducted after voters left the polls on election day found 40+% called 0bama's response to the storm a part of their decision to vote for him, and 15% who voted for 0 say they were strongly influenced by Christie's reaction.

So "siding with him" on the basis you've chosen is an emotional, but fact-free decision.

Congratulations! That makes you a liberal.

You raise an interesting consequence of this election (the results of which I do NOT believe): The GOP will LOSE constituents BIG TIME to the ‘Independent’ Party.

That's not really the point. Christie turned down a request from the Romney camp to appear briefly at a Romney rally. He's a jerk — and I've been a BIG Chris Christie supporter.

I’m not saying you should have been mean to the man, I’m just saying you didn’t need to walk around hand-in-hand with Obama while he preened for the cameras. One of our main arguments was that he was too partisan. The public agreed but, you sure fixed that up for him, didn’t you?

Bottom line: You were one of our stars and you killed us with your star power.

Again, get out of our party, Christie.

This eletion was very close. I listened to Rassmussen on BOR a short time ago.

The truth is that Christie and Sandy raised Obama’s job approval numbers to 50%. Rassmussen said he re-adjusted his final poll numbers because if you get 50% job approval, you win.

So Christie indeed may have tipped the scale in Obama’s favor with his slobbering praise. He looked so pathetic schlumping along after Obama like the little wussy fat kid on the block.

9% said they made up their minds a day or two before the election, 64% said they approved 0bama’s handling of hurricane Sandy.

I didn’t see the whole Christie-0bama lovefest because I didn’t have power or Tv for five days because of the hurricane.

0bama has done nothing in the relief effort except for the photo op, things are a mess and getting worse.

I guess you mean people made up THEIR minds. In any case, Fox exit polling showed that about 50% of those who had been undecided a week before the election went to Obama because of Sandy. They thought that his canoodling with Christie made him “look bipartisan”. Christie gave a wonderful gift to the Muslim.

Well, the main reason Romney lost was because not enough people turned out to vote for him. Obama had fewer votes than he did in the last election. But Romney had millions fewer than McCain. He was just a lousy candidate.

Which doesn’t change the fact that Chris Christie is a fat fraud, whose only accomplishment was a couple of YouTubes where he pretended to scold the Teachers Union—but did little or nothing to follow that up.

And even if it didn’t cost Romney the election, his behavior sucking up to Obama after Sandy was unforgiveable. Traitor.

He may have thought it would set him up to be next in line. And maybe it will. I’m sure Karl Rove is just itching to run Christie in the next election. In fact they toyed with the idea of running for VP this time. But if he succeeds in getting the GOPe’s backing, then he too will lose, by an even bigger margin than RINOs McCain and Romney. Perish the thought.

“FU Christie!”

I’ll second that. I’ll bet he was always a fat pig and got beat up regularly at school.

Fat little momma’s boy is politically finished unless he switches over to the Socialist (Democrat) party.

Saying “Thank You” is one thing...giving BJ’s to the enemy of FReedom (0bama) and costing us the election is another.

Bye, bye fatty!

In light of the Noreaster battering New York and New Jersey, and FEMA shutting down it's office in New York, I have a question for Christy:

Where's your frickin President NOW?

Could he be partying?
