Emetic of the day: Rep. Pete King, Gov. Christie to bond over GOP’s ‘mean-spirited regional bias’

Whip out your tiny violins and bring your barf bags.

New York Rep. Pete King and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are victims — victims! — of the meany-pants Republican Party’s “mean-spirited regional bias.” Today, the Republican congressman announced he’s prying his eyes away from Beyoncé and Jay-Z for long enough to nurture his GOP-bashing bromance with Christie.

“We have to find a way to check the Republican Party from having this mean-spirited regional bias,” King said.

“When you’ve got a guy like Christie who is effective and conservative and able to articulate our Republican principles and he’s getting screwed by. . . [the] national Republican Party, what does that mean for the party? How out of touch are we?” King asked.

The pair bonded recently when some GOP lawmakers fought to keep absurd pork from weighing down the Sandy relief bill.  King threatened his colleagues when the House failed to pass the larded-up legislation and Christie ripped the House GOP.

    “mean-spirited regional bias” ? Kind of like the liberal biases and insults levied on the South?

    • journogal

      I was about to post something similar. And those biases and insults aren’t just coming from liberals, but also NE Republicans as well.

    • grais

      Yes, very much like that.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I’m really tired of Republican pussies. The majority of the citizens on the left are pussies, or we have to birth control them, but all of the Republican reps are pussies. Put the tampons down and take a stand for your principals. Is there no one out there that learned anything from Reagon.

    • Electradivine

      Wow twitchy you allow this type of gutter filled language comment to stay while deleting others that are tame compared to this…. Bias much??

      • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

        What gutter-filled language did I use in this post; pussies, tampon or birth control? You’re awfully touchy and sensitive.

    Doesn’t Peter king know that being on the conservative plantation means no free thought.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      You mistake the two predominate political platforms of today…………. being on the “conservative plantation” means no free ride…….. it is the “liberal plantation” that means no thought at all

    • NachoCheese (D)

      Funny you should mention Plantations and Free Thought…

      Check out what your fellow liberals called a black man that dared to stray from the Democrat plantation:

      • michael s

        And that was uncalled for.

        • NachoCheese (D)

          Yet par for the course from “tolerant” both black and white liberals any time an African-American dares to stray from the Democrat plantation.

          Should we list more examples to help you understand the blatant racism prevalent, tolerated and not just accepted but cheered by the left?

    • ClarkFL

      White southern Democrats were the plantation owners and slave owners. Get your Democrat racist history straight first before you comment.

    • carla5731

      In the ignorant world of michael s, an emergency relief bill loaded with pork equals “free thought.” Sounds about right for a lefty.

      Don’t you realize that not passing out unlimited, pork laden bills is what conservatives are railing against?

    • GTFOBigGovt

      You keep saying that but it isn’t relevant. Neither one is [fiscal] Conservative and Conservatives are not the majority so the plantation is actually not theirs..King sits on the BANKING committee FFS. His fav is foreign affairs/homeland security, tho.

      These two guys were having showboat temper tantrums for their constituents. NOTHING said about FEMA’s FUBAR of the thing, and not a single word about the pork in the bill that was GOING TO BE PASSED anyway. Christie doesn’t get a pass for mentioning “clean” bill instead of being explicit about the PORK impinging on his money.

      It wasn’t the Congress who promised eliminating the “red tape” for Christie, it was Obama. Don’t you ever tire of defending him for saying things that have no basis in reality.

      And although I wasn’t a Christie fan, I don’t think he did himself ANY favors with those outbursts. He seemed very shaken, desperate and unprofessional. Sorta like a desperate girlfriend trying to hang onto a man. IF he were the solid tough politician everyone thought, he would have GOTTEN IT DONE behind the scenes.

      But apparently ole Barack wasn’t that into him post photo op and wasn’t taking his calls. *sniff

      Which I believe was the REAL source of his drama. (OMG I potentially destroyed my career for that ahole and he screwed me over!) Truth hurts. Politics is HARD. LOL

    For dudes from NY and NJ, they really need to grow a pair.

  • Steve_J

    They can gush over Beyonce’ and Obama to each other.

    Chris Christie is not a conservative. In fact, I would think that there are a scanty amount of conservatives in the Northeast. There are only Big government Republicans. Stop deceiving yourselves, you two.

  • Chip

    Christie will switch to democratic party within the year…..

    Regional bias? Against the Nelson Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party? There is a reason NYS has a Conservative Party.
