Governor Chris Christie Has A Message For Republicans

Gov. Chris Christie: "I think Republicans across the country need to get back to our brand...less government, lower taxes, less spending and common sense regulation that grows private sector jobs. So, I think if my win tells anything, it means if we get back to basics as Republicans, then we speak to some of the concerns people have in New Jersey and across the country."

I agree with Gov. Christie.  The Republican Party has, over the years, veered so far away from smaller government and less spending, that it's been hard to tell the difference between them and the Democrats.  Remember the saying a few years ago..."Democrat Lite"?

Warning...if the Republicans take back the House and/or the Senate in November 2010, they better take Gov. Christie's advice.  If they don't, there will be hell to pay and they won't have a leg to stand on in 2012.  There is a huge job ahead of them trying to repair the damage the Obama Regime has done to America and to put a stop to any further damage BHO has planned for the country.  Hard decisions and smart policies must prevail. 

Gov. Christie has begun the long, hard road to recovery for New Jersey by following his own advice.  It will be interesting to see how that state fares in the years ahead.  Let's hope our Republican leaders in DC are strong enough to resist the calling of the "Ruling Class" and get down to business for the "Country Class" who they represent.


  1. TCL,
    I agree 100%, no more RINO's... We elect you and you don't stand true to our values, you're toast... No Scott Browns will be accepted...

  2. Well Said, TCL. I like Christie.

  3. Christie is a breath of fresh air. I too wonder how successful he will be in New Jersey. As for the house and senate? If they blow there chance should they take over ( I see the house for sure, senate not so much, but close )2012 will be the end of the Republican road and a third party will emerge. Republicans had better heed the Governors advice....

  4. Hi Born Again American:
    I'm with you...NO MORE RINOs.

  5. Hi Bunni:
    I like Christie, too. I'm in NJ for the summer and our NJ friends have only good things to say about him.

  6. Hi Randy:
    Oh, no third parties, please. I hope it doesn't come to that. Split votes and lost elections.
    Let's pray that we elect some good leaders in November who will bring the GOP back to their senses.

  7. Governor Christies message is the same message of the tea party movement. When I hear that some Senators aren't too fond of a hero in the Senate, Jim DeMint, I want to scream and cry at the same time.

    We must change, and now we are all too aware that we must change if for no other reason than it is the constitutional thing to do.

    BTW TLC, I see you commented at David Lemon's Clay to Bronze. He is such an amazing artist and just a really, really fine man.

    I could watch his tapes all day, but then I wouldn't get any blogging done.

    I know he will love that you stopped by.

  8. Just wanted to say, in addition to my previous comment, I think Christie is the model conservative.

  9. Hi Maggie:
    The Ruling Class conservatives dislike Jim DeMint because he hasn't rolled over and joined them in the DC clique. DeMint is a patriot.
    I hope Christie is successful in his attempt to "fix" NJ. We've spent most of our lives in NJ (still do 1/2 the year) and are happy that, finally, there is HOPE for this state.
    As for David Lemon's website...I'm happy I found it. I spent quite a while watching some of the videos and was amazed at the processes they go through to accomplish such beautiful artwork. My friend is a sculptor and I passed the link on to her. I'm sure she'll enjoy it.

  10. I completely agree with you. BRAVO!

    This has to begin with a smarter electorate. Before we have compassion for illegal aliens, how about some compassion for out of work Americans? We seem incapable of discerning media and political lies and distortions and complete omissions.

    We need more politicians like Christie who has guts to stand up and tell it the way it is.

  11. Many Republicans now a days feel it's more important to get along with "across the Isle" and the press. The name John McCain comes to mind. We need a party, with a back bone, that speaks their mind like Christie does. That's what Reagan did, and he was one of the most popular presidents of the 20th century.

  12. I hope we get a good crop of conservative candidates this year, and that they hold true to conservative values while in office.

  13. Hi Sam:
    I think the only good thing about Obama being elected president is that it woke up the apathetic electorate who didn't take the time to find out what kind of "change" Obama had in store for us.

  14. Odie:
    You're right. The "ruling class" Dems and Repubs are almost indistinguishable. McCain and Lindsey Graham are two perfect examples. Christie definitely doesn't fall into that category.

  15. Opie:
    After reviewing some of the TBF candidates, I am encouraged.

  16. Let's hope he does not do what Englands Conservative party did; spent 13 years in opposition apologising for being conservative and at the recent election were so bothered about the middle ground they abandoned many core Conservative principles which is what led to their current coalition with the Liberals (who are the Third Party, somewhere in between left and right) as the conservatives right wing abandoned them at the polls.

  17. banned:
    I guess the problem is, candidates can say anything before they're elected, and then once in office do whatever they please. We can only do our best to find out as much about them as possible before voting.
    We have some of those CINOs (conservatives in name only) in our Congress now. Their definition of conservative sure isn't our definition of conservative. I hope the people voting this November start the process of weeding a good portion of them out. And whoever gets elected must be strong enough not to fall victim to the DC clique (ruling class).
    The scenario in the UK that you talk about here sounds terrible and very frustrating to say the least.

  18. love, love, love, Gov. Christie.
    I agree, he's a breath of fresh air, he's right, he's smart, and I enjoy watching his interviews.

  19. Pedaling:
    Couldn't agree with you more.

  20. I think 2010 is the GOP's last chance. If they do not turn things around conservatives will have to find a new party.

  21. Trestin:
    Let's hope it doesn't come to a third party. As I've said many times, a third party will split the vote. Look what happened in 2008 with Ron Paul. He turned out to be a spoiler and the Dems won.
