          • grais

            Absolutely.

          • Mellow Melon

            Grais, seriously. The only reason Christie is saying this is because it’s cool. If this had happened under Bush’s watch, he would be keeping his lips sealed tighter than a tomb so as not to offend the “overwhelmingly center-right nation”. But now that he thinks the tune has changed and that political fortune can be found in shifting ever leftwards, he’s all game. To so brazenly label the NRA ad as “reprehensible” when all it did was use kids as props – JUST LIKE OBAMA DID – is the height of hypocrisy and the epitome of political opportunism.

          • grais

            All pure conjecture on your part. The only time I’ve ever seen or heard of Christie trying to be ‘cool’ is when he swoons over Springsteen (which makes me sick). Like him or not, Christie speaks HIs mind, political consequences be damned. You’ve let the media tell you what Christie’s about. (He takes on the Union bosses and fights to cut spending, he’s a staunch conservative; he doesn’t like the children of Obama (or Any politician,as he said)being used and he’s a fat, stupid liberal who ought to just join the Dems,already) He’s my Governor…I’ve let HIM tell me what he’s about. Truth be told, he’s Not a staunch conservative, nor is he a stupid liberal. And I am not a diehard fan of his, but all this sudden hatred directed at him is the result of people having built an impression of him WITHOUT knowing very much about him.
            btw, if all the NRA ad did was “use kids as props – JUST LIKE OBAMA DID – “, is one ‘reprehensible’ but the other ‘not’?

          • Mellow Melon

            The media ain’t told me crap about what Christie’s about, bro. I didn’t even know Christie existed until August, when I heard people tossing his name around as one of the RNC speakers. Look, I get that you’re emotionally attached to Christie, and I don’t blame you – I feel the same way about Rick Perry. I know everyone thinks he’s a stupid, backwards hick, but I like how he stands up for himself and I find the blustering macho image endearing 😉 But the fact is, Grais, they’re politicians. And they do things that are popular to look cool and gain some ground. And when they stand firm in the face of public opinion, that’s bravery. But when they just mouth aimlessly along with the rest of the crowd, they just want to score points, not state their real opinion.

            It’s not conjecture on my part. Gun control is always a touchy topic. And it hasn’t been until this horrific event that being in favor of gun control was popular. Grais, if Christie were to say this at any other time, under any president that didn’t have a (D) after his name, he would be politically crucified at the stake. But right now, everyone in the media is fawning over him, heralding him as the new darling of the Republican Party, the savior of those nasty, gun-clinging, backwards Republicans. And here’s why: because Christie is slamming Republicans. Christie has always been for gun control; that shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone who actually knew him. The issue I have with Christie is that he’s dumping on the NRA because it is politically expedient. He’s either got to know that he’s being a hypocrite, or he’s just incredibly stupid. You cannot morally and intellectually slam the NRA for being morally crass by using Obama’s kids in their ad without recognizing that by that definition, Obama is also morally reprehensible for using a bunch of little kids at his executive order signing. They both used the kids for one reason alone: to sway political sympathies to their side. It’s sick, it’s inappropriate, and it’s wrong – NO MATTER WHO DOES IT. But Christie is only hammering ONE side for doing it. Grais, you can’t believe that that is being fair and opinionated. That’s being plain stupid and hypocritical.

      • APW

        I actually agree with that. Bipartisanship has disintegrated with this president (I’m tempted to call it regime). I think the way back begins with a middle of the road candidate and a better balance in both houses. One half of the country feels disenfranchised right now, and everything about Obama suggests that he wants to crush the GOP (and it’s voters) under his heel. Friends, that is called a dictatorship.

        • Ronald

          Agreed. Bipartisanship is a lost art. Just one cliff after another. I’m personally getting very tired of the brinksmanship. Hopefully whomever is in office 4 years from now will be a more effective leader than Obama.

        • carla5731

          Whether the Obama children were enrolled at Sidwell Friends or not, that school, founded by supposedly non-violent Quakers, would still employ a staff of armed security personnel. The NRA’s ad is relevant and makes an important point about children of privilege.

        • WisconsinPatriot

          Why would ANYONE do that?

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          I did listen. I don’t see it from his point of view.

          1. The mention in the ad was of “The President’s kids.” No names, no pictures. We all know he has two kids. We all know they go to a private school and we all know they have Secret Service protection.

          2. Christie says that POTUS’ kids had no choice, POTUS has no choice and by omission he is saying that WE have no choice for the protection. He says debate the issues, that IS an issue and he dodged it to trash the NRA. That is his choice.

          3. If Christie has an idea of what the “real issues” are on this topic, he failed to provide any. It may be in a different video.

          If the Obama girls had been named and their picture used, that would be one thing. But to point out that they are protected by highly trained marksmen 24/7 and the idea of OUR kids being afforded protection for the few hours a day they are under GOVERNMENT control, is valid.

          I already have read your disagreements. And we will have to see this in opposite viewpoints. For the record, my year (1983-84) in a Hoboken shipyard and living in Iselin, NJ was very enjoyable. I’ve always liked the Garden State.

          • grais

            You must know then, that I never said I agree with him. But, as a parent, I can understand his reaction. He doesn’t think ANY politicians’ kids should be brought into the national spotlight to further a cause. I agree with that. I’d’ve been happier with him if he’d said ANYbody’s kids, but he didn’t, so I’ll just have to be disappointed with him in that regard. He’s very happy with and proud of NJ’s strict gun laws, so I have some disagreement with him there, too.
            I don’t know that he dodged the issue, exactly. It was a presser; he was asked a specific question.
            He has spoken recently about his ideas (if you can tolerate clicking this website, you can see how he deals with some of the dopes he has to deal with.) ; )
            http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/01/16/in-town-hall-meeting-christie-counters-obama-on-guns.html
            Are they good ideas? Maybe. Like I said, I’m not a great fan of his.

            I think I get frustrated by all the nonsensical crap that’s thrown at him by people who THOUGHT they knew him because they liked the little bits they saw on the national news when he was ripping apart unions, etc. They built, in their own minds, a vision of some conservative savior, which most of us in NJ knew he wasn’t. They loved how he spoke his mind as long as he agreed with Them. When his state was massacred by Sandy, no one here (NJ) was surprised that he embraced Obama…he (and any other governor) would & should have embraced ANY POTUS in the same circumstances, and even we Obama haters thought it was a GOOD thing.He gets high marks from the whole state for his handling of this mess. Obama & FEMA- not so much. Chris Matthews was glad that Sandy struck when she did. I get the impression that a lot of folks would have been glad if Sandy had struck at some other, less politically inconvenient time. Afterall, it’s Christie’s fault that Obama won. (Yes, I’ve actually seen exactly that posted)
            I think some people (especially those posting on BBs and places like this) have no idea about who Christie is/has always been, no idea about how much he (& we) love our state, no idea what Sandy hath wrought, no idea that the NE is far from ‘nothing but a buncha flaming liberals’, and no idea of how utterly devisive and childish they themselves are.
            /end of rant/

            Iselin, huh? That’s not even a particularly nice part of the state. ; )
            Well, neither is my shore anymore, but not for the same reasons.

      Dave, you lump all conservatives in with the fringe element that say and do outrageously awful things.

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          Ronald, I have to respectfully disagree with you. I don’t think the Dems even acknowledge that there is such a thing as “ultra-left wing”, which would be the opposite of the term they constantly throw at the right.

          The media never report anyone as being far left. They merely move the “center” point a bit more left and call it normal.

          • Ronald

            I agree with your assessment of the mainstream media. They rarely if ever report on the far left or give them air time. I think that’s part of how they suppress (or distance themselves from) the left wing nuts. But as soon as a crazy right winger says something dumb, they report the hell out of it.

    • Herman LaClair

      since there’s so much of it.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      think like a democrat, it’s not a murder of 8 year old children, it’s a 32nd trimester abortions.

  • pococolo

    Have always liked Christie, but his comments in the vid above are those of an elitist snob who really thinks he, other politicians, his kids and the kids of other politicians deserve more than the kids of “the little people” who are beneath them. Don’t think I CAN like a guy anymore who thinks like that. My kids didn’t have a choice either, Prince Christie, but they deserve protection every bit as much as yours do. And if you want to disarm ordinary citizens or keep concealed carriers out of the schools of the common people, it’s only fair you disarm politicians’ schools too.

    • grais

      They’re the comments of a parent and a politician. I don’t necessarily agree with him, but then, I’m not a politician. I am a parent, though, and I might find it reprehensible if my kids were used like that, or even if I could imagine my kids being used like that.

      • TocksNedlog

        Hopefully you WOULD find it reprehensible to discover that while your kids enjoyed the protection of armed guards at school, other people’s children did not.

        • grais

          My kid were protected(?) by an armed guard at our little high school in our little town, years ago. I wasn’t particularly comfortable with it, especially after learning that some little dipshit jumped the guard one day. To be honest, I didn’t give much thought to what was going on in other high schools. Should I have?

          • TocksNedlog

            Only if you care about innocent human lives being guarded against violence.

          • grais

            Ah. So, do you know about the security situations of all the schools in the nation, or even in your area? Or do you not care about innocent lives being guarded? One or the other, right?

          • TocksNedlog

            YOU are the one that said you “didn’t give much thought to what was going on.”

    • rae palmer

      I agree. Christie makes his point that his kids didn’t choose to have a governor as their father and need protection from us wackjob citizens. Well how about this? Kids in the ghetto public schools didn’t choose to be there NEEDING protection either. The kids of normal families at Sandy Hook didn’t CHOOSE to go to a school and get shot that day. I don’t care if his kids didn’t choose his career, that’s completely irrelevant. His kids aren’t more important than ours, and politicians and celebrities have no right to demand we have gun-free school zones while they have gun-protected school zones.

    • Kate

      I think he had a lot of potential, but lately he’s just become another spineless East Coast Republican. He is clearly trying to stay popular in his super-liberal state so that he can get re-elected.

  • kch50428

    If Chrissy doesn’t like it then it has to be good. If he wants to see reprehensible, I suggest the nearest highly reflective surface.

    • grais

      He doesn’t much like Union Bosses.

      • TexSizzle

        Even a stopped clock is right 1/720th of the time.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        It is because they are the only other group with enough power to challenge his rulership.

        Obama uses a different tactic, he befriends the unions. When he no longer needs them and consolidates his grip, they’ll have dropped their guard — and be open to the long knife.

        Tin-plated despots don’t share power.

  • V the K

    Ah, he’s employing the standard “Only I, as a father, am allowed to pimp my children for political purposes” defense.

  • Michelle

    The ad was spot on – it pointed out that the children of “elitists” have armed guards at their schools. Meaning, aside from Secret Service protection for the President’s kids, the school they attend (with the children of other elitists) have armed guards. This very same group of people poo-poo the idea of having armed guards at the schools of average American citizens. This is called hypocrisy. As for anyone upset that NRA ad brought up the President’s children, including Wolf Blitzer, and saying the NRA had no right to use Barry’s kids as political pawns – how is it any different from those kids on the stage yesterday standing around Barry as he signed Executive Actions. They were used as political pawns, were they not?

    • Purple State

      Does it matter that the parents of these private schools are paying for the armed guards themselves (via tuition) whereas the NRA is suggesting that all taxpayers foot the bill for armed guards in public schools? Isn’t that not elitism but instead capitalism — the school being the business that buyers are attracted to because of the quality of its services?

      • Michelle

        Really, you make the safety of children an issue about money and who’s paying the bill? That’s pretty interesting coming from you – a known Liberal on this site who argues with any right leaning point of view just for the sake of arguing. Every high school in Los Angeles Unified School District has an armed guard and it’s been that way here since long before the Newtown shooting, and now in addition to those armed guards at every high school, we now have uniformed police officers making the rounds to EVERY school in the district. We (that includes me) taxpayers have no issue with this, we welcome it and are glad for it (and I don’t even have children in school, I gladly help pay this bill). No reason the rest of the country can’t do the same. Now go ahead, make an opposing comment to this one. After all, it’s really all you’re ever here for.

        • Michael Rice

          If you look in the list of executive orders, there is money being earmarked for school resource officers. Guess what those are.
          I wonder why liberals did nto throw a fit about that…becaue it was POTUS who wants them.
          Consservatives called for the same thign under a different name and they all threw a fit.

          • Grumpa Grumpus

            Knowing Dingleberry’s visited the Soviet Union in his youth and loves Mao & the things Mao instituted, I thought those “school resource officers” were more like the the Chinese “political observers” or the
            old-style Soviet “political officers” that were embedded in every unit to assure the politburo’s will was carried out.

            Knowing how the Skidmark-in-Chief feels about children (just abandon them to starve in linen closets…) I find it difficult to believe that he’d put money into guarding them as you suggest.

            But I might be mistaken, I suppose….

        • Purple State

          No need to mind-read. I was only posing a question. Here I was thinking this was a discussion forum where anyone was invited, not just the sycophants. I stand corrected.

          Also, I didn’t make the safety of children an issue about money. The NRA did by with “elitist.”

          And for the record, I don’t have a problem with armed guards in schools. I just don’t think it’s the only solution. The NRA keeps pushing this as a kind of miracle cure, and that’s what I quibble with. It’s only part of a possible solution.

          As Michael rightly points out below, the president has earmarked $$ for “school resource officers.” That’s a move in the right direction, but it’s only one.

          • Michelle

            Stopped reading after the first paragraph. “No need to mind-read. I was only posing a question. Here I was thinking this was a discussion forum where anyone was invited, not just the sycophants. I stand corrected.” I wasn’t mind reading, I was going by your well-known behavior on this site. It’s called…paying attention, not mind reading. Save the drama, no one said you’re not welcome in the discussion. No one even implied that. You don’t stand corrected, you stand utterly predictable.

          • Purple State

            Have to say, this sounds pretty uninviting to anyone who doesn’t just nod and say, “Yes, Twitchy, you’re right.”

            “Now go ahead, make an opposing comment to this one. After all, it’s really all you’re ever here for.”

            But thanks for the clarification. I’ll steer clear of your comments from now on. I’m interested in asking hard questions (even of myself) about complicated issues. I see now that we don’t have that in common.

          • TocksNedlog

            It IS possible to engage in reasoned debate without resorting to ad homs of the Musket Morgan “You all have already made up your minds” type. Just make sure that your posts actually include those reasoned arguments and you’ll be fine.

          • TocksNedlog

            It is only YOUR interpretation that the NRA is “pushing this as a kind of miracle cure”.

          • Rick Weesner

            So I guess it’s a miracle that there’s never been a shooting in those schools where there are armed guards.

      • janedoh1

        how about de-funding abortion clinics and applying the money toward armed guards in public schools

      • TocksNedlog

        The answer to your question is NO, the distinction between public and private schools does not matter. Because innocent children are innocent children, no matter where they are located.

      • Elena0412

        Not if school attendance is compulsory. And it is.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Marcy-Cook/1001619613 Marcy Cook

        We can solve this very easily. Send obama’s kids to public school. Obama thinks public schools are so great then he should send them there. They would get armed security in a heartbeat and no one would complain.

      • GTFOBigGovt

        That doesn’t make sense to me. School taxes are paid by HOME/PROPERTYOWNERS’ property taxes in the municipality/district. Even people who have no kids have to pay school tax. The feds ship additional money to the states/districts for bribery or to force compliance just like with Medicare.

        Aside from the fact that each district can chose for itself…the CONSTITUTIONAL WAY…a better question is why am I being forced to pay for other people’s food, phones, internet, medical care, abortions, birth control, even strip joints and I can’t even get SCHOOL PROTECTION FOR MY OWN KID?

        Which is of course completely rhetorical since I would never send my kid to a government school now.

        I assume you’re not a property owner or you wouldn’t have assumed that the federal government is paying for public schools nor have the final say in what local school boards choose. .

        Don’t you think it’s disgusting that someone has to pay for other people’s stuff when they don’t even have kids or get anything back from the other people draining the “fund” without even working for it? I do.

        Then again, Liberals” “Roads! Bridges”.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        so, it’s ok for the taxpayers to foot the bill for a school building, furnature, equipment, etc, etc, even if they have no kids themselves. but to expect the school to hire an armed guard like they would a janitor or maintanence man is not? did you know that a lot of schools already have police officers present, & have had them present for several years going back to the 1970’s.

    I am a resident of NJ, and while Christie is good for NJ – it is only because he isn’t a northeast liberal progressive dimocrat. But, he is a northeast liberal “republican”. (more like a 60’s democrat to me.)

  • kamwick

    Funny, all the righties here likely just loved Christie when he was bashing teachers and talking tough at the convention. Just fell all over themselves lovin the big dude.

    Now that he committed the huge crime of giving an effective president his due during a crisis ( like an adult), and called the NRA out for its devolution from a rational organization that taught gun safety to a gun cult whose leaders’ views belie all common sense, he is now evil incarnate.

    As a longtime independent who first voted for Anderson, it’s heartening to see a somewhat rational GOP leader. Here’s hoping more moderates like him speak up and inject some wisdom into a truly pitiful party ( by the way, I’m no fan of Dems either).

    • TocksNedlog

      Yeah, ain’t it funny how we like him when he says or does the right things, but aren’t too keen on him when he says or does the wrong things?

      I think you made that up. Because he didn’t talk tough at the convention he talked about himself and his mother. And nobody liked it let alone loved it. So your premise is without foundation.
