Well, that didn't take long, did it.
The darling of the GOP and keynote speaker at the Republican convention, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, has now turned into Quisling Christie. And what, you may ask, has brought the Wrath of Wrepublicans down on its one-time hero and presidential hopeful? What has this politician, whom crass and foul Coulter claimed would be the only candidate able to win the presidency from Mr. Obama, what on this blue-green, climate-changing Earth has he done to earn the imprecations and malevolence now enveloping, like a miasma of toxic gas, Christie's once bright and future political star?
Republican Governor Chris Christie worked and cooperated with Democratic President Barack Hussein Obama. But wait! There's more! And it's shocking! Gov. Christie said, Gasp! in public, Gasp!, that the president did a great job in cooperating with him and seeing to it that federal assistance would be delievered promptly to the victims of this unprecedented storm.
Oh the humanity!
This will not do! And the conservatives have made it extremely clear that Americans helping Americans in their darkest and most desperate hours is not a conservative value.
In fact, what Gov. Christie has done, as the chief executive officer of New Jersey, is unforgivable to the howling masses who believe it is a far, far better thing to obstruct and sabotage their country than it is to work together to heal it. And now we have absolute proof of this in their ugly reaction to Chrisite's cooperation with President Obama .
Here's a sampling of their reaction:
"...the WEATHER CRISIS that apparently caused his mind to snap. This sad turn of events found the tubby governor giving EXCESSIVE PRAISE to BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA ...What's YOUR interpretation of The FAT MAN'S wanton act of TREASON against his OWN party?"
And here are some comments that show how sick with hatred and paranoia conservatives have become. Read these wholly unAmerican--no, worse, inhumane thoughts and let it sink into our collective brains what nasty, brutish, and baneful people they have become since Mr. Obama won the presidency.
"Christie is making an ass of himself.
It's a bromance!
I don't know how much difference the bromance will make, however. How many votes will be swayed by Christie's stumping for Obama this late in the game?
In a way, Christie looks as if he's kissing federal ass so as to make sure to get federal dollars."
"Christie just proved himself to be one of "them" with his effusive praise of Obama JUST before the election.
He's another John Roberts -- a fake conservative. His early support of Mitt Romney when we DESPERATELY needed a more radical conservative-libertarian, strict-constructionist was telling.
Besides, his weight is SO out of control -- the sign of a weak, self-indulgent character -- I doubt he'll be around more than another few years at best."
"As I watched the Governor and the President doing a walk around of the devastated sites in New Jersey the thing I noticed first and foremost was that both were walking around with their hands in their pockets — obviously for photo-ops rather than being there to lend a hand to help. "
"New Jersey is my home state. Of COURSE I care about it, but the massive physical and economic destruction and frightening inconvenience there right now are NOTHING compared to the need to BREAK the BACK of the MARXISTS who are in control of the WHITE HOUSE right now.
Governor Christie allowed his emotions to run away with him. It is HE who has lost sight of the BIG PICTURE in the panic and terror of the moment.
I wouldn't give Obama ANYTHING except a good swift kick in the shins, if I had the chance to get near the bastard."
Daily Caller's Matt Lewis:
"Lewis’ primary gripe with Christie is that he was simply too grateful to President Obama for being responsive and quick with his release of federal disaster relief funds.
[I]sn’t it possible to be serious and respectful and thankful without becoming a prop for Obama’s re-election? (The issue here is about the degree to which he is going out of his way to help Obama politically — and the context of the timing.)"
The above comments are the embodiment of all that is sick and demented in this polarized country.
I don't know what can be done to change it, but I do know that what the governor and the president engaged in during a very terrible time for our country is a small step in curing us of this sick madness.
