Chris Christie: I'm a 'common-sense conservative'
« on: March 19, 2014, 11:11:08 AM »
During a town hall Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie explained that the was a "common sense conservative" after he was asked by a participant whether he was a moderate.

That's the beauty of me," Christie replied, ac"cording to CNN. "Everybody looks at me and sees something different."

Christie defined himself as a "common-sense conservative," saying believed in smaller government and lower taxes.

"To me, that's a conservative. But everybody perceives 'conservative' as something different these days," he concluded.

Christie is corrupt.  That is all you need to know.

Christie is a Bill Clinton style politician. Everything is negotiable, and nothing is off the table, as long as Chris Christie benefits from it.

More liked Obama than Bubba.   He's a bully with no conscience at all.

That's not "beauty." That's a man who has failed to make it clear what (if anything) he actually stands for.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

He's right. I look at him today and see one thing. Then he speaks or does something and I see him entirely differently.

Whatever it is, it ain't beautiful. I'd call it flip flop.

Whenever a politician calls himself a "common  sense conservative" what he really means is he is "not a conservative." Ditto "compassionate conservative."
