16 thoughts on “Gov. Chris Christie: Serial Liar

  1. “Clearly there has been a pattern of the governor playing fast and loose with the details,” said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University. “But so far, he’s been adept at getting the public to believe what he says.”

    OK, I guess this is this as close as we’re ever going to get to someone actually calling a Republican polician a liar.
    That asshole Wilson yelled, You lie!” to the President last year when he clearly wasn’t lying. I think we need to say “You lie!” everytime they do.

    And Christie seems like an even fatter version of Jonah Goldberg, but with distemper.

    And so far, he’s fairly popular. A lot of fat bullies are. For awhile.
    And then, one day, “Secaucus Fats” will bully someone who’ll put him in his place. And then you can watch his popularity plummet, and everyone else who’s ever been bullied by him will line up to kick him in the groin when he’s down.
    I do hope some of the union members are still required to wear steel-tipped boots.

  2. I’ve heard that he is called ‘Crispy Creme’ perhaps due to his habit of eating doughnuts, perhaps b/c he is rather rotund.

    As long as he is bombastic and stays on the offensive, he need not worry about the truth.

  3. “Everything is an assault, which makes it hard for adversaries to catch their breath and question the substance of what he’s saying before he moves on to the next thing,” said Assemblyman John Wisniewski, the state Democratic chairman.

    Sound familiar? Seems like Christie was paying attention to the political tactics of the Bush Administration. Just keep steamrolling ahead and don’t get distracted by the concerns of reality!

  4. A little off topic , but it does bear some relevance..Namely the sorry state of our nation and the overall lack of our educational system. Maybe there is some truth in the old adage that apples don’t fall far from the tree. It makes me wonder how someone could pride themselves in being an ignorant and intolerant redneck and be baffled when that same intolerance comes back on him.


    • Scott — the video is kind of unintelligible. I can’t make out the words, or exactly where you are coming from except that you don’t like government. Consider adding subtitles next time, or else practice your diction.

  5. I think I get it erinyes, you’re using Weeble World as a metaphor for our nation. With it comes an uplifting message that although things look dark at the moment, we are a people who wobble on occasion, but we don’t fall down. That’s really a beautiful sentiment. I feel a lot better.

    Wow, I just thought, on point of fact, quite a few of us have already fallen down and some of my friends and neighbors have a disturbingly erratic wobble. I hope in the end, rich people aren’t the only Weebles standing or the only “real” Weebles as the Snow Princess would say. Well, thank you for trying to spread some cheer. I think I’ll go look for my “Wobblie Song Book”.

  6. A Canadian Reader,
    Sorry. I know you’re right. But, as the saying goes, “all’s fair in love and war,” and I don’t exactly “love” Christie. And the right’s always pointing out that Al Gore’s still fat.
    Now, I’m not exactly a GQ model (unless it’s Gut Quarterly), so I probably shouldn’t do this. But, I find it ironic that a man who tells everyone that they need to tighten their belts, probably needs 3 people and a winch to put his on.
    As Lou Costello used to say, “I’m a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad boy!”

    • Sorry. I know you’re right. But, as the saying goes, “all’s fair in love and war,” and I don’t exactly “love” Christie.

      I don’t know if this is true, but conventional wisdom is that Gov. Corzine’s remarks about Christie’s weight during the campaign were what got Christie elected. Be warned.

  7. I know you’re right, maha, but why, as usual, can the right get away with whatever they want, but we can’t say a word (I know I sound like a younger sibling)?
    I mean, they’ve been pointing out Al Gore’s fat, has brown suits, lives in a big house, drives around in an SUV, etc., but we can’t mention that if Christie is indeed elected President, they’ll have to pull Taft’s bathtub from the exhibit at The Smithsonian, and possibly have to expand it.
    Sorry, I couldn’t resist…
    Ok, I’ll be better.

  8. “All’s fair in love and war.” True. But there’s another saying: “Life ain’t fair.”

    It totally agree that when sane (OK, left-wing) people say something nasty, the MSM and certainly the right come down on them like a ton of bricks, whereas the right can go around telling bald-faced lies (oops, was that nasty to the hair challenged?) and comes out smelling like roses.

    We’re having similar problems here in Canada right now. Our prime minister, who’s moving further to the right every day (though the Tea Party would consider him a flaming commie, but I digress), has just been chastised by the Speaker of the House of Commons for basically committing “contempt of Parliament”…and he’s heading into majority territory if they call an election soon.

    Probably this description sounds like Chinese to my friends south of the border, but all I can say is that there’s something very noxious floating in the North American air. (And don’t get me started on the mayor of Toronto…)

  9. I would have thought that Canadians, having looked at the disaster that was the Conservative Little Boots adminstration, would have avoided putting his right wing brethren in power.
    But then I would have though the same would also go for France, Britain, and other countries.
    There appears to be a right wing backlash all around the world.
    Post Fin de siecle? I shudder at what happened in the half century of the last one. It looks like we may back on the nascent Fascist path.

  10. Whew!, I’m glad goatheard put that together, I was afraid people would think I was making fun of Christie’s physique, comparing him to a Weeble, or somethin’.

  11. Fact: 80% of children that attend Milwaukee Public School are living in poverty. 80% of those children are minorities. Mr Walker gave 300 million dollars to private schools. He gave them the right to deny a child on any grounds. Fact: if a child from milwaukee county wants to in role in the 220 program for example Brookfield- state if a child has not enrolled by the 2nd grade they can be denied. They want to be able to shape the child at an early age. The county with the poorist county in the state. Shame !
