Outrage: Christie rips House GOP, denies pork in pork-filled Sandy relief bill

Well, anyone hoping that Chris Christie would use his soapbox to shine a spotlight on the porktastic components of the failed Sandy relief bill got hung out to dry. At his presser today, Christie railed against John Boehner and the House GOP for scrapping the bill:

And by “work together,” he means “blame Congressional Republicans for everything.”

Christie said that he attempted to contact John Boehner several times and was met with silence:

But perhaps Boehner was busy with other things:

According to Christie, though, the fiscal cliff was just a big nothingburger:

Really?

Could very well be.

While Christie accused House Republicans of playing politics:

He failed to notice his own political posturing:

Not only that, but when confronted about the outrageous amount of pork in the relief bill, Christie refused to acknowledge the truth, dismissing criticism as “talking points”:

When Christie finally did acknowledge the presence of pork, he minimized its significance, reserving his outrage for Republicans:

Yep.

Many conservatives well aware of Christie’s more liberal proclivities were nonetheless shocked by his outright GOP-bashing:

Where was his outrage at Harry Reid?

Or the vacationing President Obama?

No time for that. Must target the GOP.

He certainly didn’t win many Republican fans today.

Or:

Politician or not, today’s diatribe did not endear him to proponents of fiscal responsibility.

Ouch.

        grais, Cuomo told Obama not to come to NY. That’s what Christie should’ve done.

        I wonder if Sean Hannity will continue to be a cheerleader for Christie for higher office.

          Christie just needs to like NJ. His appeal has lessened to the rest of the country. The Democrats have very successfully knocked him off the wall…..you would think it was planned……….never let a crisis go to waste!

    Of course they pulled the bill — it WAS laden with items that would not, nor should have have ever been in a ‘relief’ bill.

    • grais

      Then why hasn’t Boehner said that that’s the reason? He’s ignoring Christie’s and Cuomo’s questions.

      • stuckinIL4now

        Why is it now Boehner’s fault other than the opportunists are piling on? After the stroll on the beach Obamuh claimed he had it covered. What did he do? NOTHING. Why did HE drop the ball? Bcuz he was too damn busy campaigning and living it up with his Hollywood celebrity pals. Obamuh is the one who made the empty promises bcuz that’s what he does best besides slacking off. I didn’t hear Boehner or anybody else making the kinds of promises Obamuh made. The pork in that bill is mostly on Obamuh and the Dems and I’m sure it was designed specifically so that its would it be pulled and the Republicans would get blamed for it but I’m glad Boehner pulled it anyway. Sorry that people are suffering but that’s still NO EXCUSE to carelessly spend money.

        • grais

          Boehner has not said Why he pulled the bill, and Christie and Cuomo and King, et al, made him look so bad that he’s caving already.

          As far as Obama goes (whom I can’t stand,btw) I don’t know that he dropped the ball. Starting Immediately after the storm, you couldn’t swing a dead cat around here without hitting a FEMA rep, or inspector, or instructional sign. I know a number of people who got fast and thorough attention from FEMA. And I agree w/you about the pork—ridiculous and shameful. As Christie said, Vote on it. If it fails to pass, it fails to pass. He wants/expects them to Do Their Job. He was mad because after being assured by house members that it would get done, Boehner pulled it from consideration w/o any explanation at all.

          • Mellow Melon

            I wouldn’t feel quite so bad for the House GOP if Christie wasn’t such a gigantic hypocrite. The Obama thing was somewhat forgiveable. This isn’t. Don’t know if the dude recalls, but a UNION IN HIS STATE turned away VOLUNTEERS from Alabama because they weren’t part of a #($)@)! union! And then Christie wants to blame it on the House GOP, who would have been murdered at the stake for ignoring the dreaded fiscal cliff?! This guy is even more shameless than Mitt Romney.

          • grais

            There’s an awful lot of misinformation out there:

            http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/union_official_denies_non-unio.html

            Boehner is the one who pulled the measure from a vote. Should Christie have blamed Pelosi?

          • Mellow Melon

            Debunked. http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/02/new-jersey-town-to-ala-volunteer-utility-crew-dont-help-with-sandy-unless-youre-unionized/

            Either way, Christie doesn’t have any business blaming Boehner for not passing a bill full of useless and irrelevant pork to pretend to “help” one state. Why is Christie not calling on more volunteers from other states? Why isn’t he organizing fundraisers, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army? He has had about two months to spend time helping out his state . . . and he’s spent a lot of it hanging out at places like SNL! Seriously? I mean really, you are going to go onto SNL and then turn around and blame everything on Congress, which has been preoccupied with the fiscal cliff parade? A real leader must accept responsibility for himself and cannot constantly be placing the blame on others when he himself has done little to give the help he claims to be so desperate for.

          • grais

            Christie didn’t blame Boehner for not Passing the bill. He blamed Boehner for taking the vote off the table with No Explanation for doing so, after Christie was given numerous assurances that the bill would be put up for a vote. You may have noticed that other politicians, and others (Dem AND Repub) have also criticized Boehner’s move. In fact, they shamed him into action. And the bill is Not to help One State. It’s to help all the states affected by Sandy, primarily NY, NJ, and CT. (Granted, it’s also filled with a nonsensical, disgusting amount of non-Sandy-related pork. It shouldn’t even be half of the amount it calls for)

            Christie has spent the last two months helping his state, and is not “constantly” placing blame on others. How much time has he spent “hanging out at places like SNL?” Do you know? What is the “little” he’s done to help his state? Do you know?

            FYI NJ is almost always dead last (50 out of 50-some years 49 out of 50) in fed $ received vs. $ paid to the fed and it’s been that way for at least 30 years. It’s about the same for NY and CT. Maybe it’s time those states’ taxpayers got a little consideration for a change.

          • Mellow Melon

            Then I’ll retract my previous statement and agree that Boehner is at fault. The problem is, Christie is going about this in an inappropriate way by trying to make Boehner out to be some kind of cold-hearted villain; though Boehner is wrong for not moving quicker to give an explanation, Christie cannot presume to know that Boehner is holding it off just to torture the citizens of NJ. Christie still looks weak to me because he is blasting Boehner at a time when it’s popular to do so, which makes me think this is less about genuine concern for constituents and more about political grandstanding. And the man’s a bit hypocritical – he did not blame Obama for not trying to delay the cliff temporarily to get this vote on the table sooner. It’s not all one man; Boehner was wrong to take the vote off, but why didn’t Reid or Pelosi put pressure on him to put it back on? You have also not acknowledged as to whether Christie has already tried to raise more support and funds before this. He cannot depend on Congress alone to dole out money.

          • grais

            Christie does not presume to know that Boehner held off the vote “just to torture the citizens of NJ.” He doesn’t Know why Boehner did it, because Boehner ignored all of his phone call asking for an explanation. If you’d listened to Christie you’d know that.
            Why would Christie blame Obama for not delaying the fiscal cliff fiasco when he had assurances from house repubs that the Sandy relief bill would be put to a vote right after it? Christie is pissed precisely BECAUSE he cares about the people of his state. Why you want to pretend that he doesn’t, or that he’s done nothing for them, is beyond me.

          • Mellow Melon

            I don’t think you understand what I’m trying to say. The point is, it is not wise to blame JUST the Republican majority on the entire relief fund, particularly when the fund is, as has been pointed out several times, filled with largely useless pork! How does that help the citizens of NJ? And why now? Why did Christie wait two entire months to scream about how the Republicans haven’t passed a vote? Why didn’t he get mad about it like the week AFTER the hurricane blew in, when the devastation was at its most raw? Why didn’t he pressure them to get the vote out of the way firsthand? Why is he doing this now when he knows Boehner is at his weakest? And I still haven’t seen any articles, interviews or other sources that indicate that Christie has been trying to do some fundraising *before* this.

            Look, it’s easy to think politicians have their constituents’ best wishes at heart. I often get suckered into thinking that myself. But at the end of the day, most of them are concerned about what makes them look best, about hitting the right opportunity to get the greatest advantage. Christie’s random decision to unload on the GOP majority now just smells way more like political grandstanding than actual care for his constituents. He hasn’t complained before this, he didn’t complain to Obama for not pressuring for more aid, he didn’t complain to Reid for not pressuring for more aid. He’s only doing it now when it’s in vogue to bash the GOP and Boehner in particular. You can’t mean to tell me that his decision to complain after two whole months have gone by is totally void of any political opportunism at all. And again, if he was really so angry, why did he not do this TWO MONTHS ago?! When the damage was at its freshest and rawest? Where was all this anger and screeching at the GOP then? In my opinion he’s just eating his own at a time when it happens to be trendy, which is what makes me particularly angry about this conveniently timed decision to blow off steam right after the House Speaker elections showed just how divided the GOP is right now.

          • grais

            I get what your saying: Christie only pretends to care and he’s just grandstanding and unfairly bashing the Republican who he feels screwed his state (and others). You think he’s just trying to be trendy. You’re wrong.
            How do you know when or to whom he might have complained in the past 2 months? You only know what you’re told by the media. Why would he have become angry and complained 2 months ago about something that just happened yesterday?? btw, it was BEFORE the speaker election, not after.

            I think you have No Clue about what Sandy has done To NJ, or what
            Christie has done For NJ. You could read his twitter feed since the
            storm, or even more informative, his website, if you care to learn about
            any of it.

          • Mellow Melon

            No, I don’t have any clue what Sandy has done to NJ, except from what I’ve seen on the news. But see, that’s my point: why is it only media-worthy when Christie specifically goes out of his way to place *all* of the blame on the GOP? If he’s complained before, why have we not heard about it? And Boehner promised the vote way before the speaker’s election, right? If that happened at least a month ago, my statement stands: Christie should have been complaining then, not now.

            Even if Boehner didn’t promise those votes two months ago, if Christie was as desperate as he’s claiming to be, why did he not complain two months ago? Now look, I’ve already admitted that I don’t know the exact details of Sandy, except I do know that people are freezing and cold and homeless out there. So here’s my deal. If I were governor of NJ, I would first go about raising as much money as I could, doing as many fundraisers as possible (I think Christie did at least a few), rallying the Red Cross and the Salvation Army to go clean up, try to get things reorganized, and demanding Congress to give me an appropriate, non-pork filled relief fund. I wouldn’t wait two months to make that request. I’m not saying that Christie does not care at ALL for his constituents. But the timeliness of this attack and the totally out of the blue visit with Obama during Sandy (which was more understandable) just tells me that care for his constituents is not the only thing on Christie’s mind right now. Plus, his specific and personal attacks are just pointless; they’re not helping anyone or doing anything other than making people angry at a time when we just don’t need any more division or anger. It’s not going to raise money or build houses. At the most, it might get a slightly earlier vote on a bill that is likely not going to help them as much as it could if it weren’t stuffed with the pork.

          • grais

            And all of that is why I suggested you read Christie’s twitter feed and his website. You would learn what you don’t know.

          • Mellow Melon

  • grais

    I don’t understand why he’s not mad about the pork, but no one has said that the pork is the reason Boehner axed the vote. I think he’s mad that he was given assurances by House members right up until last night that it was a done deal. He feels betrayed; I don’t blame him. He wants his people to be helped.

    • JustLikeAnimals

            There are natural disasters and there’s politics. When you put them together, you get what you get. The politics of Washington didn’t stop because of the weather or its aftermath.

            btw, I lived through Hugo, as well as numerous catergory 5 typhoons in the western Pacific islands. Rebuilding is hard enough. Relying on or waiting for the govt to help makes it worse, not better.

          • grais

            Some people have no alternative but to wait for help. 22,000 homes in NJ are uninhabitable. Some others are just gone…washed away. Some of those were rented by people without much money; people who lost everything they had…clothes, cars…Everything. Where are they supposed to go? What are they supposed to do? If they’re lucky, someone is letting them sleep on a floor somewhere.

    • Catchance

      Well, really. He wants NJ to be helped, I get that. But not by pork; for someone who thinks NJ shouldn’t be stuck paying for items that don’t benefit them as much as another state (ie, the proposed tunnel to/from New York) he seems to be pretty willing for others to pay for pork which doesn’t benefit the Sandy victims.

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Mr. Christie:

    Politics and personal action have consequences.

    Had the Sandy Relief Bill gone from the House to the Senate. Harry Reid and his minions would have sat on it. Until Obama could find time in his busy schedule to arrange an anniversary signing ceremony for dramatic effect. And your state’s coffers would have been richer by $12.37.

    • grais

      And if Reid had sat on it, Christie would have torn into HIM. I wonder if you’re not making the point that Boehner is punishing the victims of Sandy (all of them along the east coast of the US and elsewhere) to get back at Christie for touring NJ w/Obama.

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, grais:

        Good points.

        Though a Republican “tearing into” Reid is a waste of breath for no beneficial effect. It might rate two five minute segments on Fox News and travel the blogs for a week.

        Though there would be little to no mention of it on any of the Big Three, its affiliates, CNN and its ilk. Unless, of course the media can find a way to ridicule Christie for having the temerity to yell at Reid in the first place.

        And yes. Christie’s Benghazi derailing love fest with Obama may have had something to do with the bill’s failure last night.

        • grais

          I’ve got to ask you, too: What would you have had a governor do other than accompany the POTUS when he comes to assess the damage?
          What would you have a Dem governor do if the POTUS is GOP?

          • Jack Deth

            A governor can always send a representative to accompany POTUS while trying to coordinate police, fire and relief efforts with his constituents.

            I live in Maryland. So, I have no doubt that Martin O’Malley (who also has presidential aspirations) would have arranged a local/affiliate (ABC, CBS and NBC all have national affiliates in DC) “victimhood” media circus. While taking every opportunity to slam the evil GOP president.

          • grais

            The people Wanted Christie there. He toured some of the shore the day after the storm, and then more of it w/Obama the next day. I wonder if you really understand what they were seeing.

          • Mellow Melon

            Yes, they wanted Christie there, but did they really want Obama there? I think that you’re forgetting about Andrew Cuomo; he had the same opportunity to be a political star, but he actually told Obama that he did not want him in New York because he’d be too much work to handle when they needed to be focusing on the victims. And I’m very sorry to say this, but Obama did literally *nothing* while he was down there except hug certain people and just look sad. What is the POINT of that when he could have at least brought some blankets or some heating pads or something like that? If the president is going to come visit my state when I’m freezing, homeless and hungry, I want him to actually CONTRIBUTE something other than a meaningless and all too temporary morale boost.

          • grais

            Maybe if you’re ever actually freezing, homeless and hungry you’ll feel differently about being given a morale boost.

And my twist on the fat jokes–he just offered evidence that maybe he’s not really overweight but he’d be a lot thinner if he wasn’t so full of blue c-rap, and not from over-consumption of blue snow cones either.

      Staying RINO has to affect real party conservatives in the primary. He’s the perfect example of that moderate, slightly better than dem, candidate the GOP is trying to push, but this one got in.

    GO HUG OBAMA SOME MORE YOU FAT F@CK! Maybe he can western union you some money from his sunny beach vacation.

  • gracepmc

    Disingenuous. And now tedious. Christie should check in with Charlie Crist.

    Once again it looks like someone is being attacked for straying from the CONSERVATIVE PLANTATION.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Someone is being attacked for being a drama queen with grabby hands for no reason, expecting all of America to jump and fund twice the size of his entire state’s yearly budget, with pork, in the middle of the night for NO REASON. OBAMA promised “no red tape” not the Congress.

      His state voted for birth control and Big Bird. They got it. And he never was conservative or accused of being one. He thought he was going to get it slid into the drama of the “fiscal cliff” and nobody would examine it. #FAIL.

    I’m a Democrat and I want to let you (the RR) how much I’m enjoying watching the alleged “base” of your party crumble. Please note that all the vitriol espoused toward Christie was by the same 5 people (Pavlich like 100 times, you’d think she could get her point across in two tweets rather than 100).

    Christie is your best, and possibly only shot at winning in 2016 so you better decide – move left or give up ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Steve_J

      Alvin Greene is the Dems best shot at keeping the White House in 2016 so they better decide. Get on the Greene train or give up.

    • Mellow Melon

      Well, it’s not like we don’t have this one person named Bobby Jindal or Marco Rubio or Susanna Martinez or Nikki Haley . . . they totally don’t even, like, exist, right? . . . ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • GTFOBigGovt

    This jackass seems like a rejected teenaged girl FFS. In fact, I know teenaged girls tougher than him. “They’ve been tellin me stuff for weeks”.

    The histrionics are IMO, his planned excuse for a prelude to his Democrat party change and 2016 run for presidency. Dreamer.

    My Goodness, you guys are turning on your own BIG TIME, wasn’t this your guy that TWITCHY EXPOSED liberals for calling him fat???? Now you guys have all the fat jokes for him, but Twitchy hasn’t condemned them yet….. righties you are becoming a joke minute by minute

    • Catchance

      Huh. Wonders never cease… never thought I’d agree with you, Dave, but here I do. Fat jokes are wrong, no matter by which side.

    This is the same Judascrat who used to rail his own state legislators for loading up the NJ state budget with pork. Christie is done as a republican politician. Sad, as I once saw a glimmer of conservative backbone.

    The real question is, why can’t these stupid phuckers in congress simply PAY FOR THE RELIEF!!? My God, it’s like taking a bunch of children to the grocery store with these a$$wipes. I want! I want! I want!! You tell them no and they throw the crap in the cart anyway hoping you don’t notice.

    No wonder this country is 16 trillion in debt and climbing.

  • Gallatin

    Maybe christie can have obowmao come by again for a hug and a stroll along the boardwalk while holding hands.

  • Mickey James

    Not long till he switches party’s now.

  • riddler1620

    Chris Christie is as much a republican as NYC mayor Mike Bloomberg.

  • Sonya A. Willis

    Maybe Obama stopped returning his phone calls and he’s trying to get his attention again. Kind of like Obama and Kal Penn’s little falling out awhile ago.

    He sold his fat ass and soul to bobo for the election and now he wants his payoff -wants to set up a new buffet closer to the office.

    If Christie were a conservative, you’d hear attacks against him from RINOs about circular firing squads, which would then be dutifully picked up by MSM. But he’s a RINO, so he’s allowed to attack other Republicans.

    Christie’s gotta be starting his run for the WH in 2016…blast the Establishment Repubs, suck up to the lefties, soak up all the free publicity he can…

  • Snarky D

    I am shocked, shocked to learn Governor Christie might be okay with loads of pork.

  • Constance

    This is the same man who slammed Romney and kissed up to Obama just days before the election. I believe he has already shown us prior to this who he really is. Get him out of the GOP. He belongs somewhere else, clearly.

  • http://twitter.com/cunningh14 Kathy Cunningham

    First, Christie helped elect Prez Obama to a second term, now he is doing his best to destroy the Republican Party. Perhaps he should come out and tell everyone he really is a Democrat! If this bill came before him as Governor of New Jersey with all the pork in it, he wouldn’t have signed it! He would have pulled out his red pen and taken all the pork out. Why is it ok for him to do it, but not others. Only true conservatives would question the pork. Only true liberals would say to sign it regardless of what it does!

  • usa3

    What about the pork porky!

  • lillymckim

    I give him 6 months and he will be changing party on paper

    • http://twitter.com/1RandiStarr Randi Starr

      Good………….it will go with his need for pork products.

  • http://twitter.com/HuandaRulz Jose Sarabia

    I already predicted a party switch, it will happen before 2014…

  • ember

    I see Christie. I hear pork. I just shake my head at the irony.

  • stellatruman

    I have been a big Christie supporter , but I am pissed off he was so quick to jump all over the house over the bill. It should never have taken this long at all..it took 10 days for aid to reach Katrina victims…over 2 months to get anything approved at all for Sandy victims

    We live in and have business in an impacted area. Had 5′ of water in our store and lost some inventory and computers. I would love to get a little reprieve for the income lost and perhaps a break from the state and IRS in terms of time to pay taxes that would have been paid with the money that would have been made in the sales lost. For those of you who haven’t been thru something catastrophic , be very thankful that you haven’t , but don’t be so quick to judge those of us who need some help that isn’t covered by insurance

    Our policies read like bills that go before legislature , and some of us actually had faith that our agents were selling us what we needed , yet learned the hard way that that wasn’t necessarily the case…and having volunteered with people in my community whose homes were destroyed and didn’t have a heck of a of cash on hand to pay for temporary housing ( hotels mostly since rentals are scarce ) , wouldn’t have been able to have anywhere to go.

    Unless you have gone thru something like this, you don’t have room to judge.

    Alaska Pork in Sandy Bill Crispy Cream Cristy ignores gives away 150 Million to Alaska fishermen to compensate them for low runs on the Yukon River caused by other Fishermen called trawlers who don’t pay a dime for intercepting the Yukon fish. It is not a natural disaster, but a man made one. Taxpayers should not be paying for it.
