“Republican” Governor Tilts Election In Obama’s Favor!


Chris Christie “Republican” governor tilts election in Obama’s favor!

“(Obama) has been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election,” said an adoring Chris Christie of the president’s clearly selfless tour of New Jersey after hurricane Sandy. Why of COURSE, governor, politics couldn’t have been further from the mind of an individual who has campaigned literally each and every day since his inauguration in January of 2009.

Prior to Governor Christie’s slobbering display of man-live before an obviously delighted battalion of media cameras, Rasmussen had Mitt Romney leading in the national tracking poll. Now, however, it is tied 48-48. Romney has slipped in both Pennsylvania and Michigan. In Ohio, a 2 point Romney lead has evaporated, and the opponents are now tied at 49. And Obama’s job approval numbers have risen from 48 to 50.

Thanks very much, Governor, for helping Obama do what he could not do by himself—that is, look competent and involved. And all for a flock of media hacks who spent more time covering your public display of affection than the whole of the Benghazi betrayal.

Fortunately, there is a fair amount of good news as well. According to the Washington Post, “…13% of likely voters who voted for Obama in 2008 plan to vote for Romney this time.” National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg applies this info to 2008 election results and rightly decides that, in order to make up for such a loss, Democrats will have to hope that a large number of McCain voters will now support Obama! Goldberg sums up with “…I can’t see how [Obama] can possibly win the popular vote if this (WaPo) graphic is true. And it also makes me very suspicious of the national polls that show this race being within a point or two.” Jonah is not alone in being suspicious of some of the national polls.

Paul Ryan heads to Minnesota on Sunday for a campaign rally. And Mitt Romney will be in Pennsylvania at the same time. Breitbart rightly says, “You don’t waste a candidate’s time on a bluff in the final 48 hours,” so the Republican team must believe these 2 states to be very much in play. And more importantly, the GOP team must consider Florida, Iowa, and perhaps other states safe enough to abandon for trips to what was formerly unapproachable enemy territory!

Yesterday, longtime political analyst Michael Barone wrote “Romney beats Obama handily.” Barone bases this belief on a number of election “fundamentals.” Apart from the pathetic job Obama has done, “…both national and target state polls show that independents…break for Romney.” Also, Obama will NOT enjoy the 7 or 8 percent advantage in Democrat voter turnout that gave him the 2008 election. “That’s been apparent in early or absentee voting, in which Democrats trail their 2008 numbers in target states Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, and Nevada.”

Barone gives the following states to Romney: Virginia, Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Wisconsin, and PENNSYLVANIA! The final tally: Romney 315 Electoral votes, Obama 223. Barone concedes Romney could lose Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and yet still win the White House!

Here’s hoping Michael Barone is right on the money.

    I have been watching the news all day today Saturday, between Fox, and the local stations. I also watched in disgust the other nite, Friday evening as the news channels spin doctors erupted in ecstacy about how good Oblunder handled Sandy destruction, and offered help to Chris Christie and the state of NJ. And Christie sucking up to Oblunder for help. First of all I don't believe he should have had to do that, but because he professes to be republican, Oblunder made him get down on his knees, so to speak for some help. Quomo, and Bloomberg didn't have to say a word, Oblunder volunteered to spend, give them all the taxpayers money that they needed. As of 6pm. tonight, fox has nothing on the news about NJ. getting any gas or much of anything else. New York city, and Long Island has gotten 8 million gals., and 28 more is on its way. They have gotten huge navy pumps for the subways, huge generators from DOD. Even free gas for Eergency personnel. Not a thing for NJ. yet. The peoples money and assets is for all of us in times of emergency, not just left leanning people/democrats. What has this evil monster done to this country.?

      "obutplug" is right on schedule to do what he was installed to do, IE: destroy the USA. All this with the help of the trillion dollar welfare crowd & the dumber than rocks people who vote for him. I pray that this time the dummies will grow an extra brain cell & help vote him out, otherwise the US is gone.

        You have hit it right on the head. obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. I hope that all those that voted for this guy without even knowing if he had the qualifications to even think about occupying the greatest and most powerful office in the world. Shame on all who voted for the community organizer and the greatest enemy America has ever had inside this country.

    A word to Gov. Christie: Until now you have been a favorite to watch for higher office. That is now gone. I will remember that you "bought" Obama's act. So far, in Obama's public life he has NEVER shown any interest in anything that doesn't benefit himself. NEVER. ANDYOU BOUGHT IT. You are through, done, finished. Whether or not Obama wins re-election I will remember that you succumbed to his act. Remember – just weeks ago – when he had it in his power – in fact, his duty as commander-in-chief – to help those in Benghazi, and went to Vegas instead. Put cameras in front of him though and he's the greatest!! And you think he's acting selflessly?? Are you kidding??

      I feel the same way. I use to have lots of respect for Christie but no more. He didn't have to suck up to Obama to get money for his state. People would have sent money from all over the world to help. Oh well I guess Christie will learn some things you do just don't pay.

    This is no accident, Chris Christie is a firiend and supporter of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

    Christie has never been a conservative … he just appears that way on comparison to the rabid liberals all around him.
