Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on November 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

Bad news and worse news for tea partiers. The bad news: It’s nearly wall-to-wall Christiepalooza on the Sunday shows this morning, with the GOP establishment’s newly crowned champion tapped as the featured guest on “Meet the Press,” “This Week,” “Face the Nation,” and “Fox News Sunday.” (In fact, he’s the only guest scheduled for FNS.) If you didn’t get enough rhetoric this week about Washington being broken, compromising with Democrats to “get things done,” and showing up in minority communities long before election day to win their votes, today’s your lucky day. It’s worth watching Wallace interview him on FNS if for no other reason than that there’ll probably be a question about Rand Paul’s latest dig at him. Time for this feud to move back to the front burner.

The worse news: “State of the Union,” the only show among the big five on which Christie won’t appear, will feature … Lindsey Graham instead. The full line-up is at Politico.

Did y’all see this story? Funny.

AP, you must be giddy. Everywhere you look…RINO! Enjoy it while you can because 2014 is coming and RINOs are going to be few and far between in the next congress.

Just remember Christie won with the same folks that Bob Menendez won with. That tells you that Hillary would kill Christie and the last thing we need is a nominee that can’t win in his own backyard. Whether you like CC or not, you can’t deny that not winning your home state is a giant liability. By the way, does anyone know when the last to be president without carrying his home state ?? I don’t know

Michael Goodwin, NY Post:

“Fresh off his landslide re-election, where he got a third of Democrats and a majority of women and Latinos, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is getting the traitor treatment.

Rather than hail him for winning in a blue state, angry GOPers rightwing conservative purists are accusing him of getting ready to switch parties and — gasp — of being fat. “Gov. Kris Krispie,” one reader calls him.

The attacks on the likely 2016 candidate must bring a smile to Dems. After all, tarnishing Christie now mostly helps two people: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

Re-read that last sentence, TruCons. Not that you care, as long as you get to strut around and bash those who actually understand politics with how principled you are.

Christie is looking to grow the tent, and has been able to do that in NJ. The purists only want to make the tent more exclusive.

Really, how stupid do you have to be to believe the latter is an effective political strategy?

Can someone define just what is the tea party ……………….. to myself it is a loosely used term to describe people are fed up with big government. There has never been a “Tea Party” Convention to form any platform whatsoever.

Dear Dumb-as* RINO,

Where to start with this level of smug stupidity? How about with a number: $17 Trillion.

“Those who actually understand politics” are the exact problem with our nation and our political leaders — they understand, all right. How to tax and spend. How to borrow money and indebt us. How to make unsustainable promises to stupid people, with other people’s money as the promise.

The Insane Clown Party didn’t run up $17 Trillion in debt by themselves — they needed votes and political cover from Republicans, which they easily got by “working across party lines” and bribing liberal Republicans with graft for their districts and campaign rules which made members of both parties very, very hard to remove from office.

Mocking the only voters in America who view the $17 Trillion as a problem with your “principled” epithet tells us more about you than any Tea Party mentality. Dope.
