Confirmed: God sides with Chris Christie in New Jersey budget battle

posted at 3:50 pm on July 8, 2011 by Allahpundit

My atheism is unshaken, but I’ll say this: If there really is a man upstairs, I knew he’d be a deficit hawk.

Sweeney, incidentally, is the same guy who mused last week how he’d enjoy punching Christie in the head for being a “rotten bastard” and a “punk.” Maybe God’s just angry that he violated the New Tone?

It is immoral to steal from people, which is exactly what the Dems do.

mydh12 on July 8, 2011 at 3:53 PM

Didn’t hit close enough…

PatriotRider on July 8, 2011 at 3:53 PM

That’s the sound of the Tea Party coming.

faraway on July 8, 2011 at 3:54 PM

Warren Buffet and Obama “hold gun to the head”, just yesterday…

Schadenfreude on July 8, 2011 at 3:56 PM

New Jersey wins.

Schadenfreude on July 8, 2011 at 3:56 PM

Maybe God’s just angry that he violated the New Tone?

How long before God lets Obama know that he didn’t like the remark about Republicans holding a gun to the heads of the American people?

Please say November, 2012.

VibrioCocci on July 8, 2011 at 3:57 PM

God punched him in the head.

Turned his face red.

mydh12 on July 8, 2011 at 3:53 PM

It’s not stealing. It’s just forcing you to surrender your hard-earned money under the threat of force.

See the difference? More like extortion.

hawksruleva on July 8, 2011 at 3:59 PM

Reminds me of that scene in Year One when Cain gets it right between the eyes.

John the Libertarian on July 8, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Holy %&#%!

nickj116 on July 8, 2011 at 4:01 PM

Btw, first time I think Allahpundit has ever capitalized “God”!!

nickj116 on July 8, 2011 at 4:01 PM

Notice how he has a hard time looking into the camera. I thought dems had perfected the art of lies… this dude needs more practice.

behiker on July 8, 2011 at 4:02 PM

Awwwwwwssssssooooommmmeeee!!!!!!!

Excellent catch. Evidence his belief system is crumbling?

John the Libertarian on July 8, 2011 at 4:03 PM

Now that was funny!!

Talon on July 8, 2011 at 4:06 PM

Was god available for comment?

John the Libertarian on July 8, 2011 at 4:03 PM

How is not believing in god(s) a belief system? Is not believing in leprechauns also a belief system? Is not hang gliding a hobby?

MJBrutus on July 8, 2011 at 4:07 PM

You asked all of this yesterday. Quit hugging that strawman so tightly. he’s losing his stuffing.

kingsjester on July 8, 2011 at 4:09 PM

Better be careful y’all if you’re gonna continue to call Christie a RINO and such… ;)

JetBoy on July 8, 2011 at 4:11 PM

first time I think Allah has ever capitalized “God”

Professional courtesy.

Emperor Norton on July 8, 2011 at 4:11 PM

It would have been even more awesome if he said something like, “And if I’m lying, may God strike me down…” just moments before.

DrAllecon on July 8, 2011 at 4:11 PM

Fat joke alert:
Chris Christie is so fat…
“How fat is he?”
He’s so fat that wherever he stands it looks like God is next to him.

Anyone else think this guy is a big p^$$yawwwwpussycat for getting that scared from a bit of lightning?

Chris Christie is so fat…

“How fat is he?”

He’s so fat he balanced the budget, didn’t raise taxes, took on the unions and won.

catmman on July 8, 2011 at 4:17 PM

To bad He missed…..

sandee on July 8, 2011 at 4:17 PM

He put the fear of Him in Sweeney.

kingsjester on July 8, 2011 at 4:19 PM

Draft Christie: He can even broker compromises with God.

KingGold on July 8, 2011 at 4:21 PM

Is the linked piece an editorial? In two different places the writer refers to Republican legislators as “bobbleheads” seems disrespectfully partisan.

Cindy Munford on July 8, 2011 at 4:23 PM

Btw, first time I think Allahpundit has ever capitalized “God”!!

nickj116 on July 8, 2011 at 4:01 PM

It’s only because it followed the colon, like the first word in a sentence. Don’t give AP credit where credit is not due.

txsurveyor on July 8, 2011 at 4:24 PM

JetBoy on July 8, 2011 at 4:15 PM

How did the move go? And is it hot enough for you?

Cindy Munford on July 8, 2011 at 4:23 PM

That’s a Star-Ledger opinion column, so yes.

KingGold on July 8, 2011 at 4:25 PM

KingGold on July 8, 2011 at 4:25 PM

Thank, I’ll stop calling the writer names.

Cindy Munford on July 8, 2011 at 4:29 PM

I really wouldn’t have a hard time picturing Sweeney appearing as a witness for the defense at a Gotti trial.

He’s all ButtHurt because he enabled Christie to drain the swamp and now the DemSpaz Retards are calling for his head.

Win/Win…

BigWyo on July 8, 2011 at 4:37 PM

Now that’s funny.

txag92 on July 8, 2011 at 4:46 PM

My son used to rock back and forth like that when he used to soil his diaper too!

OxyCon on July 8, 2011 at 5:02 PM

Methinks a nickname is called for here…

Stephen “Duck and Cover” Sweeney?
Stephen “Feets Don’t Fail Me Now” Sweeney?
Stephen “Please Jesus Don’t Kill Me” Sweeney?
Nah, too wordy. How ’bout…

Stephen “Flinch” Sweeney?

Yeah, “Flinch” will do nicely…

CaptFlood on July 8, 2011 at 5:24 PM

The Bible warns against debt. It is amazing the teachings that can be found in that good book if people would just pick it up and read it. Especially secular liberals who seem to want to throw out the morals it puts forth and start all over again. Thousands of years of civilization learning the hard way before these morals and virtues were written down and liberals think they can do better.

Daemonocracy on July 8, 2011 at 5:27 PM

It wasn’t God.

It was Christie unloading his BOOMSTICK from a NJ State Police copter down on his rival.

You do NOT want to make Christie angry.

Good Lt on July 8, 2011 at 5:45 PM

God doesn’t like liars.

SDN on July 8, 2011 at 5:53 PM

That’s OK AH, God doesn’t think much of you either.

leftnomore on July 8, 2011 at 6:33 PM

Sweeney is a parasite on the tax payers of NJ and seriously needs to go. He was instrumental in seizing, by eminent domain, a parcel of land along the Delaware River belonging to a Lt. Col currently serving his country in Afghanistan and doing it while the guy was deployed. Sweeney is a sleaze bucket, but that is just my opinion as an NJ taxpayer.

Beaglemom on July 8, 2011 at 7:07 PM

How is not believing in god(s) a belief system?

MJBrutus on July 8, 2011 at 4:07 PM

You’re joking, right? If you do not believe God created the universe, you believe it was created from anti-matter that became matter and somehow exploded and everything scattered and life just sort’ve appeared by the magic hocus-pocus of a gazillion years and then we all evolved from amoebas even though there’s scant fossil evidence of species mutating to new species or any evidence of all of the evolutionary misfires. And that’s not a belief?

John the Libertarian on July 8, 2011 at 7:26 PM

Whoa!!!!!!! that must have left skidmarks in his boxers!
