Reuters ^ | 1/17/2013 | (Reporting by Kevin Gray; Editing by Jackie Frank)

Posted on 01/17/2013 8:09:07 PM PST by South40

(Reuters) - New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie harshly criticized the National Rifle Association on Thursday for referring to U.S. President Barack Obama's children in an ad that advocates putting armed guards in schools, calling it "reprehensible" and "wrong."

"I think it's awful to bring public figures' children into the political debate," Christie said at a press conference in Trenton, New Jersey.

I’d put money that he converts to the DNC shortly. You can stick a fork in him. He’d done as anything else but a Democrat.

So does Guv’ner Sta-puffed think its reprehensible that the children Obama didn’t exploit yesterday and now on the White House youtube channel not being exploited some more?

An example at being at war with his own party members/the base. He cannot blame the media for destroying his chances for the next election. His own mouth, his views may have done him in. For. Good. The media is damaging him now so when they prop him up for the primary, (as they did with Romney) the base will not support him.

“But he has no problem with Obama using other people’s children to advance his agenda.”

Exactly.

And CC doesn't see the double standard in his senseless rant. Amazing.

ann coulter used to salivate over him in years past - wonder what she thinks of him now.

Good point.

Remember when Christie said ...What the Hell are we paying you for?.. Obama is a president who is a bystander in the Oval Office ..

It was November 2011 regarding the debt limit and Obamas aloofness...life of parties and golf

So now Christie is acting like the rest of the gate keepers ... protecting Obama and the progressive globalist agenda.

You can be sure Christie has emotional issues, which is obvious with his weight. A morbidly obese, young, otherwise healthy person, such as Christie can not be trusted. They are miserable, manipulative, angry people.

Typical vintage Christie - his mouth running off before his brain is in gear.

How I hate this state - broodery of leftist swine like this.

As another poster noted, I wouldn’t be surprised if this jerk ran again as a Democrat. It is rumored he thought of turning coat before.

But most Jersey Republicans are a viperous breed, more like Democrats than Republicans.

Honorable Governor Christie,

“I think it’s awful to bring public figures’ children into the political debate,” Christie said at a press conference in Trenton, New Jersey.”

Do you feel the same way about Obama using children to advance his own gun control initiative?

Of course you don’t. Because you are an embarrassing buffoon.

Look at a picture of Governor Christie’s ass and you will see the future of the GOP.

After 11/2012, I am an ex-lifelong Republican. The party is no longer the loyal opposition and a graceful loser, it is as evil as the Democrats/liberals and deserves no loyalty. We conservatives need to form a new, conservative, family friendly, God-fearing party to take back what was once the USA and its territory. All not with us are the enemy, foreign and domestic. Each of us must work to protect our family and prepare to defend ourselves and our loved ones from tyranny and oppression.

More:

"I think it's awful to bring public figures' children into the political debate," Christie said at a press conference at Burger King in Trenton, New Jersey.

"To talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have - not by their own choice, but by requirement - to have protection, to use that somehow to try to make a political point is reprehensible," Christie said, unwrapping a Triple Whopper with Cheese Meal.

"I think any of us who are pumblc figrs, you see tht ad and you cringelmff," said Christie, who is considered a possible Republican presidential contender in 2016.

"It's wrng and I thmmk it dmeansthm and it makes thm less of a vld trsted srrrce of [indistinct] on the real issues that cnfront this debate," Christie remarked emphatically, slurping a milkshake and dabbing at a bit of ketchup on his shirt.

After the press conference, Christie was overheard asking a member of the White House Press Corps whether he would be able to take a bundle of flowers and a bottle of wine over to the White House.

It still irks me that Ann Coulter, who I used to like, repeatedly slandered candidates such as New Gingrich in the last cycle, while stumping for the likes of Mitt Romney and Chris Christie. Especially Christie - she would never shut up about that bloated fraud.

I am not familiar with starting a Pool but if someone set one up for the date Christie comes out of the closet I would put $25.00 to FR if I didn’t hit the date.

Maybe the winners would/should settle for bragging rights!
