Governor Chris Christie appreciates that the House finally passed a $9.7 billion Sandy relief bill, and in a joint statement with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, he expressed hope that the House would pass a bill providing $51 billion in further relief.

At first glance, Christie’s remarks don’t seem all that, well, remarkable — except for one thing: when he tore into House Republicans for failing to pass the original relief bill, he dismissed critics who pointed out the bill’s thick pork padding.

Today, though, Christie pressed the GOP to pass a “clean” bill. Why would he make a point of calling for cleanliness in a package that he vehemently insisted wasn’t dirty?

Perhaps he’s just suffering from memory impairment like his pal Harry Reid — or he’s trying to pull a fast one on conservatives.

We noticed. And we’re not buying what he’s selling.

    “Today was just a down payment…”

    IOW, “FU. Pay me.” I really hate that attitude.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      He might as well join the DNC. He’s got the entitlement attitude down pat! Stupid, fat f^%$k.

      • Vennoye

        We have seen the “real” Chris Christie…..and have decided that NJ is the only place that he needs to be. Just another Democan…doesn’t even qualify as a RINO.

        • bluefalcon

          Has Christie ever said why he can’t get the money himself? I mean, he is Governor of New Jersey. Why can’t he get the money in his state to pay for repairs in his state? For every household damaged, there’s like a 100 that weren’t. Ask them to cough up the dough. Oh, I guess that would be political suicide. Never mind. Why do people in Montana have to foot the bill for New Jersey’s woes? That’s not the role of the federal govt. The govt. is not here to protect you from cradle to grave, and give you handouts because you didn’t have enough foresight to prepare for it yourself.

          Last thought: the “down payment” thing crossed the line. Acting like 50 billion dollars is akin to tossing a bum a quarter shows how aloof this fat tub of guts is from the conservative mentality. I grew up in Michigan, we get tornadoes and winter storms every year. If my house gets hit by a tornado I don’t ask the feds to pay for it. It’s the price of living in a world where random death and destruction abounds.

    Day’s long gone when I give a (supply your word) what Christie wants or thinks or needs.

    • detroit19

      Nope…that’s a money loser for sure 😉

  • sleazyrider

    I see a party switch in the future…bet me

    • What_the

      Can only switch to independent. Democrat party is totally sold out to unions and Christie has made it clear he’s an opponent of public unions.

    Ever since he tongue kissed Barack Obama on the Jersey Shore, the “man” has been a flamin’ liberal moon bat. I guess its true that when you dance with the devil……

  • dmbatten

    I hit Christie real hard in some tweets about the pork in the bill and I hope others did too. His ‘change of heart’ does not cleanse him of his prior foolish and selfish behavior. He should have railed against Obama who evidently lied during the ‘photo op’ at the devastation site; but Noooooooo he blames the GOP. Well Christie, this one’s for you – We don’t want you in the GOP anymore.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Did that yesterday. Let him know in no uncertain terms what an embarrassment he’s become to himself and the RNC.

  • Edwina

    Does the fool not know the balance of 51 billion contains the Pork. If he wants it clean then it will not be 51 billion.

  • rinodino

    bwhaaaaaaaa!!!!! Christie was your guys savior just a few months ago, wha wha what happened??????? lol

    • Edwina

      Never mine. Too loud mouthed. Also, he doesn’t understand math. Pork equals subtraction.

    • ChampionCapua

      He failed. Rather than pretend he didn’t – like a Dem would – and cover for his failure because he’s a member of our Party, we cut him lose. Country first, Party second. Now you know, but you still don’t understand. lol

      • crabman2

        And now the Demoncrats have him and can keep him .

      He has been proving, for months now, that he is not who he purported to be. Rather than follow him blindly with the zeal of the typical Obama fan, conservatives have chosen to not support a man who cannot stand on principle. What a concept!

  • Neil

    There is no reason to wait this long on a bill to help an entire region of people, including my family and my hometown. What republicans did was ignore the bill and do nothing instead of fixing it! Gov. Christie had every right to do what he did and continues to do, pressure Congress to shut up and do their jobs! Republicans need to pass responsible legislation and fix the bills instead of doing their grandstanding while people still don’t have homes or businesses! Shame on everyone involved in DC for their inaction! I vote republican because I believe in our core values in the GOP — inaction is not a core value of the GOP.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Why don’t you get the facts straight first? The Senate didn’t pass the original pork-filled bill until December 28–so wasn’t that a little long and late to begin with? Where was Obamuh? He made his big splashy stroll on the beach with Christie a few days after the storm and then went off on his merry way, campaigning and partying with his rich celebrity pals. OBAMUH made the promises and then he did NUTHIN’. So don’t blame the Republicans bcuz if Obamuh and Harry Reidiculous and Pelosi and the Dembeciles and even Christie gave a crap they could’ve done something sooner. Tell me, why wasn’t Christie up in their faces during the entire month of November to get something done?

      • Neil

        My facts are straight. I realize how long it took and who is to blame…everyone. There remains no excuse on taking this long to bring a bill to vote and when the bill is brought to a vote – why remove it with such secrecy? I know the democrats are elected to pass more spending, more pork and more taxes. That is why I vote republican, to have people I believe to act in my better interests of responsible legislation. The republicans failed to do that with the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal which only kicked the imaginary can down the road. They all need to get their act together. I can’t tell you why Christie didn’t hold such a public news conference calling out the left nor do I have the transcript of every media interview he has made recently so I can’t tell you, nor do I care.

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      you are so stupid I am surprised you figured out how to type that.

      • Neil

        And that is the problem right there! If you criticize your own party – you get locked out as liberal moron or just plain stupid. Since neither of our day to day interactions in our lives include name calling and the inability to work with people of different political philosophies, I can only offer as a 25 year old barely making in the private sector with tons of student debt and a shrinking paycheck from Mr. President one bit of advice for demacleo and our government, Grow up.

    NJ Craigslist ad: I enjoy short, breathless walks in the sand, man hugs, yelling at my supposed allies and donuts. Mostly donuts. Call me, maybe?

  • stuckinIL4now

    So Christie’s back from his donut run?

    It appears that the original Senate bill didn’t go through committees but went straight to the Senate floor with the blessing of Harry Reidiculous. Forbes has an interesting discussion of the pork in that apparently much of it was dingbat Harry’s payment to try to buy off 7 Republican Senators to avoid filibuster. He got only 5 of the 7 to vote yea on December 28 when the bill was passed, and 1 of the 5 was an outgoing senator and shame on her for voting yea. The problem here is the senate majority leader.

    • Zane Henry

      all crooked roads lead back to Dingy Harry. What a corrupt, little tyrant. He should be run out of town on a rail.

    • What_the

      Can’t imagine Christie run for anything. Likely pays someone to get the donuts into his office before he arrives each morning.

  • Steve_J

    Christie can leave the stage anytime.

  • Steve_J

    Guess Christie is against pork unless it’s for NJ.

      Now you’re learning.

      I imagine Christie adores pork, the food variety, of course.

  • San Arnold

    Christie just needs to change pol parties now. Keep kissing those progressive butts.

  • Gallatin

    It almost sounds like obowmao looked into christie’s eyes and promised to cut red tape.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Agree with what others have said here. Christie has crossed over to the dark side and has embarrassed himself terribly. First the make-out photo with Obama on the Jersey shore and now his shameless fretting over the pork-laden “Sandy relief bill.” He should just join the DNC and get it over with. He really has the sense of entitlement attitude down pat!!!! What an embarrassing fat f&^%k.

    • char-char

      It does appear pretty much that way, jstanotheranimal! He’s seemingly taken to the attitude of ‘If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’—

  • detroit19

    Sorry Chris Christie…you made a BIG misstatement (if that’s really what it was). Lost ALL respect for you as a Conservative/Republican. Kiss your political career goodbye, (at least as far as Conservative/Republicans are concerned).

    • char-char

      Gotta say, Suzanne M-W, I’ve got to agree with you. I used to like Christie, and I know he’s grasping at straws in hopes of keeping his political future alive, but his demands for passage of Sandy Pork Bills are unacceptable! I will remember his actions of late for a long time. But then he probably knows that and has perhaps joined the ranks of those who have repeatedly failed to plan and take proper actions, by blaming “others” knowing full well that they were in fact the first ones to fail in taking responsibility.

    • blueniner

      He never was a Conservative Republicon, that was a facade, he hoodwinked the public!

  • Jack Deth

    Is it just me? Or does anyone else think that the more Christie bellyaches. The more he sounds like a cry baby Democrat?

  • JettNC

    Christie should wonder was the Prez’s promise to cut the red tape in Sandy relief and return calls in 15 minutes or was it in reality 15 weeks?

    Sandy relief to the prez is the warm kind at his feet on Oahu on vacation.

  • What_the

    1/2 of the other $51 billion is pork. Needs to be scaled all the way down pork-free. This government needs more pork like Chris Christie needs another box of Krispy Kremes.

  • nc

    You want a “clean” bill? Talk to Rep. Darrell Issa, he’s on it.

  • wallwatchman

    What has his state done for disaster relief?! Most of the folks were privately insured as well. Americans are generous and we want to help those who suffer, but not get taken by crooked politicians taking advantage of a crisis to get pet projects funded! Christie, you’re not who I thought you were. You’re an opportunist!

    • char-char

      Gotta agree, wallwatchman–those who were not privately insured chose to put themselves in peril, knowing full well they were not covered for such disasters and despite that knowledge deliberately “dug in”. Ignorance and “bliss” can only go so far, if you expect the rest of the responsible world to pitch in and continue to save you. It’s enough to ask taxpayers to bail out victims but to ask them to do so for frivolous Pork Projects too–totally unacceptable!

  • blueniner

    Christie is the porker king, he is the grandstanding Prostitute of the Garden State, do your job instead of beating on podiums and berating your electorate….what a joke!

  • Mark Close

    Hey Christie!

    The Constitution neither defines charity nor stipulates the amount, you are at liberty to give to any and everything which you may believe, or profess to believe, is a charity, and in any amount you may think proper. You will very easily perceive what a wide door this would open for fraud and corruption and favoritism, on the one hand, and for robbing the people on the other.

    Congress has no right to give charity. Individual members may give as much of their own money as they please, but they have no right to touch a dollar of the public money for that purpose. If twice as many houses had been burned in the country as in Georgetown, neither you nor any other member of Congress would have thought of appropriating a dollar for our relief.
