correction: the best kind of Chris Christie

Chris Christie presented one of the two top speeches Tuesday night at RNC convention in Cleveland. The other top speech by Trump's son, Trump Jr., who watchers agree humanized Trump considerably. Several said they'd prefer him as candidate.

Christie opened with a few positive remarks about Trump's strong leadership and voices that want Donald Trump being heard in the hall, then he  went into this administration that refuses to prosecute Hillary or hold her responsible for her record as Secretary of State. So he will do that onstage.

Pundits are impressed with his prosecutorial style. He says straight up he intends to prosecute her and allow us to be jury. Then proceeds item by item beginning with North Africa and the overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya all across the globe, through the Middle East and China and Russia then Cuba and ending with the FBI.

Viewers liked his trained pit bull type meanness. Even his detractors are impressed. But that's it. Both of them compress the whole thing into that summation;  Christie being prosecutor. 

He left out a lot. He could have put the entire European migration debacle on her shoulders. He could have linked precipitous withdrawal from stabilized Iran to all that and place blame on her ideologic wavering leadership. He didn't even mention Egypt and Muslim Brotherhood. Didn't mention South China Sea. He could have enumerated her exposed lies through the decades that are important to people but he didn't. Obama's foreign policy history is her foreign policy history too.  She has a lot of history he left out, so much that even talking about it is wearisome. So wearisome it drags down your own convention were you to be thorough about it, so all of it gets summed up as, "typical attack on Hillary that you expect."

IOW the job interview was a success.

Maybe AG if Rudy doesn't want it.

Christie should be AG and Rudy Homeland Security Chief. I watched Christie's speech w/ my daughter. She is fairly conservative w/ a lotta common sense. From a woman's perspective, she found Christie on point but a little mean. She hates Hillary so didn't mind the meanness, but that's how the typical woman sees Christie.

The GOP could actually destroy Clinton with Clinton - will they? Will Trump? He certainly hasn't gone after he with any gusto so far.

Christie rocked. Last night was so much better than the night before.

AprilApple said...

I want all the meanness we can muster thrown at Hillary. If we hold back, it gives her too many openings. Don't ever stop being mean to Hillary.

AprilApple said...

Moo

pssst- ad material, Trump. Fire the democrat ad moles and get serious.

Agree

AprilApple said...

Christie was so good - I wish her were the nom. He looks as if he trimmed down, too. Good for him.

AprilApple said...

her = he

'We know what a Clinton administration would look like - All the failures of the Obama years, with less charm and more lies.'

*ding*

AprilApple said...

I have to agree with titus a little bit - the audience is downright sad looking.

Sixty Grit said...

Christie is still morbidly obese, still an out of control eater, and he hugged Obama. Not sure which of those is the kiss of death, but there you have it. Fat fuck from New Jersey has limited appeal, unless his last name is Soprano.

Hiring an assassin is illegal.

Any time a name stick to the opponent, you are getting the job done.

Wrong.

Pat Smith, Luttrell, and Rudy, especially, Rudy nailed it.

Christie was OK, but he's no spellbinder.

Best man won. Get used to it.

Trump 1725

Christie Zip

Fuck off Ed. I don't read your posts. So - just fuck off.

edutcher said...

Obviously, you do.

You might want to remember, even though he dampened your drawers last night, this is still the guy who gave us the Miracle of Sandy (remember his arm around Pissy?) and gave us 2 more years of Cacklepants as SecState.

You won't trust Trump, but you just love him for a speech that gave you a fantasy.

In other news, an interesting anecdote.

The One True Ted's minions during the campaign could never stop telling everybody how they outhustled Trump/ Well last night during the roll call, you may have noticed UT went 100% to Trump even though he lost the state to the One True Ted.

How could that be?

Turns out the Cruzzers misfiled the paperwork with the RNC and, in light of a rules change, all 40 delegates were allocated to Trump.

Somebody wasn't hustling as hard as they thought.

AprilApple said...

Fuck off ed- Just fuck off. What about Fuck off do you not understand?

I'm not interested in ONE fucking thing you have to say. You are an annoying asshole. I wish you would leave this blog. You ruin it.

AprilApple said...

BTW - asshole - DO you contribute to this blog financially? If you don't - shame on you.

edutcher said...

I know Ritmo hates dissent, but I'm just making a point some have forgotten about the Jersey Governor.

I was also curious about how several of the NeverTrumpers could have lost so many delegates and how Trump picked up most of them.

Now I know.

Nice PS Carson finishes the campaign with 7 delegates instead of 4. He was never going to get the nod, but he deserved better than to be knocked out first crack out of the box by a dirty trick.

And you really need to see someone.

AprilApple said...

You didn't answer my question. - do you donate to Lem? Or are you a cheap bastard?

edutcher said...

You never answer any of my questions.

And you still need help.

Or are you willing to support a guy who may have given the '12 election to the Demos?

AprilApple said...

Do you send Lem any money for the privilege of posting your non-stop obsessive annoying content on his web-site?

AprilApple said...

Your non-answer tells me all I need to know. cheap loser.

edutcher said...

The only loser is the one who can't stand debate and needs to hide behind litmus tests to get back at anybody who challenges her.

PS I don't see an answer to my question about Christie.

edutcher said...

PPS I could always lie.

Amartel said...

Ed's a throne-sniffing lackey who's finally found a political god to worship. Don't let him get to you. It's disgusting, just like those crazy Obaaaama cult worshippers. Ed would probably faint in The Presence.

Amartel said...

Chris Christie is an excellent attorney.
I don't care if he's fat. That's irrelevant. We really should quit bugging fat people. If it works for them then what business is it of ours? He's great at what he does. He should be AG.

Yes - ed is indeed a throne sniffing lackey. PLUS a cheap bastard who F*cks off all day on the web spreading his annoying unwanted lectures even after he's been asked to F off. AND he refuses to pony up his fair share for the privilege of annoying everyone.

edutcher said...

Ooooh, all the NeverTrumpers throwing a tantrum.

Let's recap,

These are the people who have been bitching for months about Trump giving money to the Ozark Global Slush fund to keep Hillary off his neck, but Christie says he's putting Hillary on trial and they forget how Conservatives soured on him because he was soft on Moslems and how he put his arm around Pissy a week before the '12 election, possibly giving the woman they say they hate so much 2 more years in DC.

These are the people who hate Trump because they spout the NeverTrumper propaganda about how he'll throw the election to Hillary, but wet their drawers over Little Marco who was ready to sell out his country and the One True Ted, who turns out to be a cheat, a liar, an adulterer, and a phony in the pockets of Goldman Sachs and the CFR, but call anyone who supported Trump against these clowns a loser.

The final and official delegate count is:

Donald Trump 1725
• Senator Ted Cruz 475
• Governor John Kasich 120
• Senator Marco Rubio 114

These are the people who can't stand the idea I knock down their nonsense with fact, which I always document, because I'm not only smarter than they are, but have a better command of the English language and don't have to resort to name-calling.

These are the people who can't seem to summon up an original idea of their own, but have to rely on someone else's propaganda, or, even though they denounce the Lefty media daily, hang on its every word and will take it at face value without question.

One last moment of pearl-clutching, heart-stopping, bodice-ripping, salts-grabbing ecstasy for the girls as Little Marco and the One True Ted get a spot tonight because Trump isn't as petty as either of them and was willing to let them speak, and then they fade into well-deserved political obscurity forever.

I'd say that covers it.

Trooper York said...

Just a word for my two friends Ed and April.

You never go full retard. Just sayn'

edutcher said...

Point taken, sir.

Trooper York said...

Chris Christie is a very overrated Rhino who will do as he is told. He has no future in elective politics so he would be an expendable piece in a Trump administration.

He can have a job and do as he is told and has to bring his shinebox. All the affection for him is only a way for people to take a swipe at Trump. Anybody that thought he had a chance to be elected President is a moron.

He might be the tame Attorney General that Trump will sic on Hillary. If he gets her indicted and convicted then Trump will reward him.

Name him ambassador to Hershey Pennsylvania or something.

chickelit said...

Trump's tent is big enough for Christie and April too. Stop this infighting at Lem's. If you want have personal disputes like I have with spinelli and Titus, leave politics out of it!
