Esoteric election results

What has the election shown us?

The Atlantic Wire said

    “Even though Christie’s actual politics often lean conservative, he’s done some serious rhetorical work to try and distance himself as much as possible from the Tea Party cohort of the Republican Party, especially in the shut down. As the national party’s approval ratings plummeted in the wake of the shutdown, Christie had some strong words: “get the government reopened, stop monkeying around, and get back to work. I said, I’m out there in the field, people have no patience for this stuff. None.”

If you remember in the last few months, gov Christie was taking shots aimed at both the Tea Party and Libertarians. Rand Paul in particular. He also attacked those “esoteric debates” taking place, and this growing strain of libertarianism in both parties.

Esoteric as defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary:

1
a : designed for or understood by the specially initiated alone
b : requiring or exhibiting knowledge that is restricted to a small group ; broadly : difficult to understand
2
a : limited to a small circle
b : private, confidential
3
: of special, rare, or unusual interest

Flash forward, he wins his reelection, which really wasn’t in question. Regardless of his chances, RNC still felt compelled to dump a million and a half dollars into it. Why, is the big question. It became clear right after the election. RNC wasted no time claiming victory and some credit in New Jersey. Though its cash could have been better spent elsewhere, but we aren’t supposed to criticize that. The GOP can criticize factions in the Party, but dare we criticize their motivations. Typical for the GOP.

Also typical is that they need to credit themselves for a win that really was never in question. What was the purpose again that the RNC had to dump cash into NJ when Christie had it sown up? The answer is so they could lay claim to his moderate strategy. I don’t know how much patience people are going to afford his esoteric candidacy?

I think the election and results in New Jersey were esoteric. Who really cares about the results there other than NJ? Still we have this esoteric election discussed as if it has great national significance.

After Christie took big swipes at two major GOP factions and “esoteric debates”, his reelection proved exactly what? That favorites win? On the other hand, there was much more national significance and interest in those “esoteric debates”, as he called them. I forgot, nobody but nobody is supposed to criticize Christie. Governor, don’t be looking for that groundswell f popular support for your esoteric candidacy.

Not all governors would make good presidents, some are more esoteric than others.

    Another damn good post Bull! Christie is about as much a Repuke as I am a commie bastard. Hell; Christie against Hitlery would be a one sided ticket!

    You would of thunk the Repukes At Large would have learned something from the 2010 midterm elections, but NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! We can’t have radicals in our party demanding we stick to our constitution, so we must change the mindset of the Repuke voters. They did a damn good job, because most Repuke voters don’t even bother to vote anymore!!!

    Reince Priebus, Mitchtheswitch, Boehner and Cantor can kiss my honky, rebel, constitution loving, redneck ass! They are the problem come bottom line and need to go!

      Yea Dave, the Preft don’t have to work hard if our resistance is down to nothing. Hillary can run straight up the middle while the RNC twiddles their thumbs. Fighting back wouldn’t be politically correct. They’ll put a loser in from the beginning, to hedge their bets. 🙂

        LOL…they do love betting on long shots for sure! Of course there is still my stand, if more lazy asses voted in the primaries we may get a decent to maybe good candidate. But alas, many are under the horrible delusion that sitting on the sideline will bring about change. I’m pretty sure that is the exact same strategy the adults used in Germany that got Hitler in charge. What is the definition of naive??????

    Another excellent post Bull!

    And if Christie thinks he’s going to get a ground swell of support running for POTUS in 2016 he’s going to be shocked. The man is a liberal parading as a Conservative. I could not vote for this “NOTHING BUT A BULLY” jerk I’m afraid. He’s for “climate change hoax” and he just signed 7 new gun restriction laws a couple months ago. Now that is just what we need. And he and the King are too friendly, hugging and almost kissing, you’d think they were lovers for bloody sake. NJ trash Christie!

      I agree Pepp. Just remembered his attacks against Newt in 2012 when he won S. Carolina. His toughest criticism is at conservatives. I never see him attack the Left. He doesn’t even bully the right people. We don’t need another candidate like that. But he misstepped a lot last year while he was flirting with the MSM, falling right in their trap.(and strung everyone along in his game) He supports gun control and according to NJ folks, he hasn’t done much for taxes either. After his 2012 prelude, I say what comes around goes around….and there’s a lot to go around there.

      ABC: DES MOINES – Gov. Rick Perry of Texas credited Chris Christie for his re-election in New Jersey, but he pointedly questioned whether the 22-point victory by Christie held any greater meaning for the Republican Party.

      “Is a conservative in New Jersey a conservative in the rest of the country?” Perry said in an interview with “This Week.” “We’ll have that discussion at the appropriate time.”

    In a word ‘baggage’ describes Christie.
