Quotes of the day

posted at 10:28 pm on March 4, 2011 by Allahpundit

“A year ago Chris Christie was sworn in as the new governor. He immediately faced a $10.7 billion deficit and catastrophic debt projections. State and local taxes were already high, so that if he raised them he’d send people racing out of the state. So Mr. Christie came up with a plan. He asked the state’s powerful teachers union for two things: a one-year pay freeze—not a cut—and a modest 1.5% contribution to their benefit packages.

“The teachers union went to war. They said, ‘Christie is trying to kill the unions,’ so they tried to kill him politically. They spent millions on ads trying to take him down.

“And it backfired. They didn’t kill him, they made him. Chris Christie is a national figure now because the teachers union decided, in an epic political drama in which arithmetic is the predominant fact, to ignore the math.”

“Generally I’m a fan of the YouTube-friendly governor of New Jersey, but in this clip I think he’s getting a little bit out of control

“The problem, of course, isn’t that Chris Christie wouldn’t do a great job if he went toe-to-toe in a collective bargaining battle with New Jersey’s government unions. I have no doubt that he would. He cares about the taxpayers a great deal more than he cares about the unions he’s always ripping on. The problem arises when a Democratic governor, whose party gets substantial campaign donations and manpower to stir up unrest, wage street campaigns, etc from the government unions, also sits across from those same unions at the bargaining table to decide on their benefits and pay packages. There’s a built-in conflict of interest there, and no one at the table is really representing the taxpayers who have to pay for everything the government unions get. Also, not all GOP governors are created equal: For every one Chris Christie who relishes the fight with the government unions, there are probably 10 weaker GOP govs who fear the fight because they lack the backbone for the politics of it all. So they give in to the unions without much of a fight, leaving the taxpayer to pick up the tab. The entire process is inherently unfair to the non-unionized taxpayer.”

***
“Why is Chris Christie the heartthrob of the radio right, while Daniels is suddenly an intolerable RINO? Christie is not more conservative than Daniels, and arguably even less so. Christie told the Newark Star-Ledger that while personally pro-life, he won’t use his office to ‘shove that down people’s throats.’ He supports New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws. And like Daniels, he has decided it’s tough enough to face his public-sector unions that he does not need to start an unrelated fight over right-to-work with private-sector unions. Yet the most acid-tongued of all right-wing commentators, Ann Coulter, has championed a Christie candidacy, asserting that if he declines to run, ‘Romney will be our nominee and we’ll lose.’

“The difference is this: talk radio is not much interested in the substance of a politician’s views or the reasons for decisions. Talk radio wants a confrontational style, and unlike the soft-spoken Daniels, the fierce Christie meets the test. The rule seems to be: it’s OK to be a Republican moderate – provided you are belligerent enough about it.”

Well the conspiracy theorist just got there so it might be time for me to check out. I can’t even read that stuff. Our government couldn’t find its’ a$$ with both hands and I’m suppose to buy into some big plot?

Are you going to buy when you get there or rent until you get the lay of the land.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 1:56 AM

We’ll buy if we can get a mortgage.
It’ll be less expensive than renting in the long run.

annoyinglittletwerp on March 5, 2011 at 2:16 AM

In Texas we say guys like Christie are “all hat, no cattle.”

Absolutely. It’s ironic that her toughest battle would be within her own party.
Way too many “soft” Repubs out there…

It would seem that now, with the tighter mortgages, you would have to have a strong down payment since you would be new to the area. At least your husband is staying with the same company so that will be helpful.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 2:19 AM

The establishment types really don’t like her. Between them and the media it will be a tough fight. I wouldn’t do it, but I’m not competitive at all.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 2:21 AM

alt,

As others have, I’d recommend renting for 6 months or a year and not buying “blind”…It may save you a lot of money and grief in the near and long term…

I was remiss in not saying hello in the Palin thread, hello…

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 2:28 AM

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 2:28 AM

Not to worry. Everybody better come over here and fill out this thread. AP is going to be disappointed that people would still rather argue about Gov. Palin that discuss Gov. Christie.

Off topic, but Jedediah Bila and Tammy Bruce are going to be on Red Eye in a few minutes.

“Yeah but”, not when paired with the Palin/Christie thread on the HA main page. One has close to 600 hits and the other about 150…Of course, the communist hater from Florida had something to do with the comment count on the P/C thread…

I heard that Newt was going to be on Hannity tonight @ 8:00 EST to possibly announce. I heard Hannity plugging the interview on his radio show today. What happened? No one has said squat about it.

Geochelone on March 5, 2011 at 3:08 AM

Geochelone on March 5, 2011 at 3:08 AM

Dunno, maybe Newt has withered under the spotlight…Maybe Newt lost track of time while sitting on the Goracle’s couch with Lugosi…Maybe he got delayed in upstate NY while checking in on Dede…

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 3:11 AM

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 3:11 AM

LOL, you skewered him pretty good. His roll out has been bad.

Of course we have had several disasters with Huck, Daniels and Newt (who else) getting either left on the launch pad with empty fuel tanks or worse, charred remains from self immolation. Huck’s book bombed. Who else stepped on themselves lately.

Didn’t toliver say we are socialist or communists for not disavowing the Alaska oil revenue checks to her citizens? I’m so confused. But I most definitely helped the comment count over there.

Which would put the “decision” conveniently close to the May 1st contract termination deadline that Fox News has set for Gingrich and Santorum…

Is anyone watching Red Eye. Apparently some Truther site thinks the government is making Sheen act crazy to keep people from taking him seriously about 9/11. I was unaware that Sheen was the go to spokesperson for all things Truther. I can see why they would be worried about his credibility.

No, it wasn’t Alex Jones. It this isn’t too much irony for you, it was a more obscure truther site. Not that I would have recognized any of the names of them anyway. Mr. Guttfeld read their convoluted theory, it was funny.

Almost as happy as you must be in your remarkable ability to know and predict my thoughts and feelings while topping it all off by accusing me of being glad about something as profoundly sad as losing the nation, as long as I could brag “I told you so”?

What an ugly thing to say, Cindy. I don’t recall ever sniping at you behind your back as you did on this thread or saying anything nasty to your face, for that matter. Wow. Thanks for letting me see a little bit of the real you.

I hope that’s the most “nasty” thing you ever have said about you. Read into it what you will. I am an optimistic person, I cannot get into a protracted “conversation” about gloom and doom because that isn’t what I believe this country and her people are. You might be absolutely correct in everything you believe and I don’t have any opinion of you as a person because of them. They just aren’t logical to me.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:14 AM

There’s no need to “read into” your comment. It was self-revelatory and mean spirited. It was not optimistic, it was negative and nasty.

As for whether this nation will survive, I don’t pretend to know. At this point, when reviewing the situation objectively, it’s not good. I don’t play Pollyanna, nor do I predict a final outcome. I do recognize the players and what their intent is. If you want to identify different players and ascribe to them different intent, please lay out your case, rather than stoop to personal insult.

tigerlily on March 5, 2011 at 4:25 AM

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 4:18 AM

Tempted is one of the five greatest songs of all time. And don’t ask me why, I can’t tell you why.

Dire Straits on March 5, 2011 at 4:21 AM

That’s cuz you said something that didn’t include a snark at Palin. Most nights, that’s all it takes with Gary and unseen to start slinging adjectives…Of course, after 2+ years of the vitrol (not from you) it becomes reflexive…

Someone said the other day that Jenfidel got banned. I had not heard that and can’t imagine why she would have. I thought that maybe since she had been such a proponent of Gov. Palin and then changing her mind, she was uncomfortable. The last I saw of Txmomof3, she said she was just really busy.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:31 AM

Thanks, Cindy. Last I heard from Jenfidel was that dust up over Palin and the gay issue. It was like watching a train wreck in slo-mo. Then she just disappeared.

John the Libertarian on March 5, 2011 at 4:34 AM

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:31 AM

John Galt (?) said that Jen was in a self imposed exile from HA…

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 4:35 AM

John the Libertarian on March 5, 2011 at 4:34 AM

It must have been really hard for her and no candidate is perfect. I guess that was a deal breaker for her. I don’t see why she couldn’t stick around, people change their minds and candidates mess up, happens all the time.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:37 AM

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 4:35 AM

That makes more sense than the banning rumor. She would definitely take some guff from both sides of the Palin spectrum.

It’s been a long time since I heard that.

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:42 AM

I don’t see why she couldn’t stick around

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:37 AM

Plus people embarrass themselves on this site routinely, and still come back and are forgiven. No big deal. It’s just the Internet. Al Gore is the only one to apologize to.

John the Libertarian on March 5, 2011 at 4:43 AM

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:38 AM

don’t worry she will be back!..She did this during the COD debate!..:)

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:14 AM

There was nothing to “read into” in your comment. It wasn’t sophisticated or refined; it was all out front. It was not an example of optimism, it was pessimistic harsh judging, accusing the worst in someone, accusing of reveling in tragedy. If that’s a mild insult to you, I am glad I don’t deal with you regularly.

As for the final outcome in this portion of American history – only God knows. However, if you think the players in power (seen and unseen) or their intentions at this juncture give any reason for optimism, then why don’t you state your case instead of lowering yourself to personal insults?

I know what you mean. There are a lot of people who are devoted to Gov. Palin and I concur with much of what they are saying but how they say it is another story. I’m a bit leery of people who appear to demand total agreement.

DS,

This is probably my favorite Sting song…Not counting Police stuff…

Gohawgs on March 5, 2011 at 4:51 AM

DS,

here’s a bassist for you. Made the song, made the band.

Again, what is the personal insult. If you are going to chastise me, be specific. You want to be offended. Knock yourself out.

Do you watch and/or listen to Glen Beck?

Cindy Munford on March 5, 2011 at 4:56 AM

Oh come on guys. Don’t give me that Stink stuff. This is Sting.

Lots of good bass players
