Here today gone tomorrow

That’s something Christie should have thought about, say about 2 months ago when he seemed to be riding high after his second gubernatorial win in NJ.

Yep, that euphoria then probably feels like a distant memory to him now, on the heels of not one but two investigations cranking up in a midterm year. Even the optimistic Christie has to say “wait a minute, it was only a few short months… I’m just being sworn in to my 2nd term.” Yep, and that’s the way it works.

He pulled no punches in criticizing conservatives and Libertarians even in his election year bid. He went out of his way to cast stones. He claimed to have friends all over. Now he has two mounting investigations strapped to his back and no one is rushing to his defense. He might ask “how did all this happen?” And he might also ask “why me?”

If it were others like Ted Cruz or Paul under fire, I doubt the well-rounded Jersey boy would have time to run to their aid. But since it is him, “oh pity me.” At least he can count on GOP central who helped prop him up among the establishment. Those others can’t!

PS, update: Karl Rove thinks Christie’s crisis will build “street-cred” with Tea Party folks.

    Seriously… Street Cred???? Rove is delusional. Rove is also the major problem with the GOP.

    Bull, street cred is ridiculous. Does Rove mean as in “Mafia”? He might get some kudos from those folks who like underhanded crap.

    Christie is DOA for the nomination now. And, no he wouldn’t give a flying rat’s ass if it were Cruz or Rand Paul. He slings mud at them while he’s up to no good in his own state. I don’t feel the least bit sorry for the big mouth bully. He can go by the wayside with the rest of the losers the RNC backs. Now I’m wondering who they will come up with next to make sure we don’t win the election.

      Pepp, I have to agree, and the only ones who don’t seem to think he is washed up are him and the establishment GOP.

      Doesn’t the Rovester know any more about the Tea Party and principles than that? It was an abuse of power. Yea, that goes down real well with conservatives, the Tea Party(ha ha) and Libertarians. He might be the only person who could try to spin this into an asset instead of a liability.

      Oh, btw, one more example. When someone who is not on GOP’s chosen roster makes a gaffe — and it only takes a couple words — they cast them under the bus like yesterday’s news with a smile on their face.

      Peter King has been running around bashing Paul, Cruz etc as unfit for office for months. Now the Palisades’ Patriarch is up to his neck. But they still trash talk Cruz and the others, for actually taking a stand.

    FYI: My term “Patriarch of Palisades”

    Beyond “Palisades” being a place in New Jersey., there is a definition in the Oxford dictionary :

      noun
      · a fence of wooden stakes or iron railings fixed in the ground, forming an enclosure or defense.
      · historical a strong pointed wooden stake fixed deeply in the ground with others in a close row, used as a defense.
      · (palisades) US a line of high cliffs.
      · (the Palisades) a ridge of high basalt cliffs that line the western side of the Hudson River, in New Jersey and in New York, beginning across from New York City in New Jersey and extending north to Newburgh in New York.
