Christie Turns the Tables on Letterman

Thought you might like this. I criticize him sometimes, but I really do like Chris Christie. Whether he’d be right for the presidency or not, he’s a unique character.

Crispy Creme Christie is so much more pleasant with David Letterman than he was to his fellow Republicans when they were slow to grease his palms with Sandy pork. Cult of personality wannabe.

Misquoting former Arizona Cardinal’s coach DennisGreen; he isn’t who we thought he was.
We should have known better than to assume that any politician out of the NewJersey cesspool would be anything other than those he replaced.
A “R” after his name means nothing because he’s in a “D” state.

Eat your donuts, yuk it up with the funny guys, and when you call your BFF, Barry for help, remember the scorpion.

chistie’s doctor warns him his “luck is going to run out relatively soon”.

We can hope it’s _very_ soon, and painful.

Really funny line – “I didn’t know this was going to be this long” – just after biting into a doughnut! Love to see Dave out done – no matter who it is!

I used to like Christie until I learned that he’s a star-struck suckup political hack RINO. Other than that he seems okay.

Self deprecating humor is one way to disarm one’s adversaries. When you poke fun at yourself, you leave you opponent no opportunity to make fun of you. I think Christie did a great job taking the wind out of the windbag that is Letterman.

Like many, I had hoped that Christie would be the new face of the GOP, but he has become nothing more than a part of the problem that is the GOP. He will speak his mind, and rip someone a new one, but when it comes down to crunch time he is nothing more than the same old same old.

Christie is a “White Elephant” – unwanted and difficult to dispose of.

I’m sure that was scripted, Dave would never allow a guest catch him off guard. Still a funny bit.

I like Christie, he’s a Republican governor in a blue state that tends to put his state ahead of politics. It was the Republicans that put politics ahead of helping our affected citizens, at least letting the Dems push that message.

Christie does best when sparring with the media and low information voters. Wish he’d lose weight, he’s looking scary heavy. :(

So when the Democrats larded up the relief bill with unrelated pork, knowing they could scream “how heartless!” if Republicans objected, that was not “politics” by the Democrats?
