Chris Christie Made Obama Look Small Without Ever Mentioning Him

Wow! No mention of Barack Obama, and yet a speech for the ages. It’s not only what Gov. Chris Christie said but the way he said it. How will liberals respond to it? “Chris Christie is fat.” Here are some of the highlights:

  • The greatest lesson Mom ever taught me, though, was this one: she told me there would be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. She said to always pick being respected, that love without respect was always fleeting — but that respect could grow into real, lasting love.
  • I believe we have become paralyzed by our desire to be loved.
  • Our founding fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity is fleeting and that this country’s principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and emotions of the times.
  • Our leaders today have decided it is more important to be popular, to do what is easy and say “yes,” rather than to say no when “no” is what’s required.
  • We are the great grandchildren of men and women who broke their backs in the name of American ingenuity; the grandchildren of the Greatest Generation; the sons and daughters of immigrants; the brothers and sisters of everyday heroes; the neighbors of entrepreneurs and firefighters, teachers and farmers, veterans and factory workers and everyone in-between who shows up not just on the big days or the good days, but on the bad days and on the hard days.
  • They said it was impossible to cut taxes in a state where taxes were raised 115 times in eight years. That it was impossible to balance a budget at the same time, with an $11 billion deficit. Three years later, we have three balanced budgets with lower taxes. We did it.
  • They said it was impossible to touch the third rail of politics. To take on the public sector unions and to reform a pension and health benefit system that was headed to bankruptcy. With bipartisan leadership we saved taxpayers $132 billion over 30 years and saved retirees their pension. We did it.
  • With $5 trillion in debt added over the last four years, we have no other option but to make the hard choices, cut federal spending and fundamentally reduce the size of government.
  • They believe in teacher’s unions. We believe in teachers.
  • We believe that if we tell the people the truth they will act bigger than the pettiness of Washington, D.C.
  • We need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something.
  • It’s a moment like this where some skeptics wonder if American greatness is over. How those who have come before us had the spirit and tenacity to lead America to a new era of greatness in the face of challenge. Not to look around and say “not me,” but to say, “YES, ME.”
  • I have an answer tonight for the skeptics and the naysayers, the dividers and the defenders of the status quo. I have faith in us. I know we can be the men and women our country calls on us to be. I believe in America and her history. There’s only one thing missing now. Leadership. It takes leadership that you don’t get from reading a poll. You see, Mr. President — real leaders don’t follow polls. Real leaders change polls. That’s what we need to do now. Change polls through the power of our principles. Change polls through the strength of our convictions.
  • What will our children and grandchildren say of us?  Will they say we buried our heads in the sand, we assuaged ourselves with the creature comforts we’ve acquired, that our problems were too big and we were too small, that someone else should make a difference because we can’t?
    I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my children and grandchildren to have to read in a history book what it was like to live in an American Century. I don’t want their only inheritance to be an enormous government that has overtaxed, overspent and over-borrowed a great people into second-class citizenship. I want them to live in a second American Century.
  • Let us choose a path that will be remembered for generations to come. Standing strong for freedom will make the next century as great an American century as the last one.
  • This is the American way. We have never been victims of destiny. We have always been masters of our own.

    We are long overdue for a fiscal evaluation of senatorial and representatives pensions and bennies…we can’t afford to keep paying people who aren’t actually doing the job anymore! Has anyone given this matter thought and attention? After only one term, the Senators can collect “retirement”! Really???? all this talk about cutting budgets is great, but why don’t they do the really gutsy thing and give themselves (all of our reps and congress people) cuts in pay AND eliminate the extra “retirement ” bucks–let them go create a business; go on the talk-show circuit (they are selling books anyway!) ; let them get a job at BK…anything but suck on the public teats any more!!! I gave up nursing about 23 years ago, I am done!!! How about everyone else out there???

    Wow, This guy is good. And then what does he do? He flushes it all down the toilet by supporting Romney, One of the guys who flushes it all down the toilet every day. It’s true, You Can’t Fix Stupid.

    I thought the fact that Christie never bothered to mention Obama, really showed how unimportant Obama really is to the future of the country. Solutions is what will save the country, not phony Obama pandering and lies. Obama was a mistake that will be corrected in November when we vote competent adults into the White House.

    Chris Christie makes the Earth look small when placed next to him.
    He has satellites orbiting him.
    New Jersey is below sea level because of him.
    Actually he’s OK, it’s Robme that is a black-hole of greed.
    63% of the woman will not vote for him!
    The only real followers he has are old white men, Ann “the man” Colter and the goosy voiced woman-folk of the “F” word network….

  • Carady

    If any Democrat comes out and calls Chris Christie fat, then I would call them PREDIGEST and maybe even a little RACIEST!

  • Suescritters

    excellant speach. Hope the libitarians were paying attention

  • Samuel

    Was nice to see and hear a convention center full of ‘real’ people, not a hoard of democrat scumbags with all their Muslim friends. Mrs. Romney is quite a woman. Having raised 5 boys, fought MS, and cancer. she deserves our respect and to say she just lives the life of a lazy rich wife is pathetic democrat blasphemy. Both Romney and Ryan are successful men in their owb right and both are Americans with the hope of this country riding on their election.

  • Steve Justin

    Better be on watch for the upcoming “sharpie party” at our White House come January!

  • Flunking_retirement

    Christy did exactly what a keynote speaker is supposed to do!

    Of course he got the usual flack from the network tools like what’s-his-face on msnbc. You know the dufis with the tingle up his leg.

    Hey Mr. Christie, How about going even further with your rhetoric and actions by enlarging your defense of the constitutional? In other words, how about reversing NJ’s laws on concealed carry and the right to bear arms that violate the 2nd amendment?

  • David Knauss

    PS to Last Comment: I cannot find out how to edit the comment after clicking Post, but it should say “constitution” not constitutional, and if some are not aware, Chris Christie is governor of NJ, one of our nation’s most restrictive concealed carrying states, along with NY, IL, MD, and a few others.

  • Sam

    For the first time in 4 years, I have hope for America. I am already imagining the night that Romney and Ryan win and I can see how excited and happy Americans are everywhere. God bless America!

  • diy1969

    Chris Christie makes ANYBODY look small! But as for class and intelligence, christie couldn’t shine Obama’s shoes!

  • discomon

    Hey genius, when the Governor says “Mr. President”, as you yourself have just written, he IS in fact mentioning Obama. May want to change the title of your article.

  • Lost Angel

    I would vote for Christie any day!!! Chris Christie for President!

    I like this governer. He would make us a good official of the federal level. He stand for everything Obama don’t. He all about the truth and facts and hard work. Obama is all about distruction, killing jobs, awarding failure,and most of all a big fat liar………….. *Watch it now before it gets pulled from the internet!*

    I watched Chris and thought he talked very sensibly. AND I knew who he was talking about and NO he didn’t use Odumbos name once!

    Remember President Ronald Reagon he said we need a small govt. and we got it and the country had some GREAT YEARS under his belt. Not like the one before him carter who had double digit inflation in the 20% plus remember that all people I do  I was a young man then.

      I think we need to get all of congress Demwits and the republicans you know the house and senate in one room and **** the ********the hell ** and tell the new congress if you are just there to put money in your pockets the same will happen to you all too………………..that is just my thought  on the idea . You the congress is all to damn greedy and not thinking what you can do for the country but what the country can do for you.  It takes both houses to get bills passed and that is Democrats and Republicans so they are all at fault for the way the country is now. Like signing that dumb-ass NAFTA bill that Mr. Bill came on tv one night setting behind his desk and he said (I am going to sign this bill into law because it will bring 1000′s of jobs to this ONCE GREAT COUNTRY of ours) and it did the opposite sent jobs to Mexico Honduras and all those other squinted eyed countries.  I myself think we need a pres. that would have the BACK BONE to take away the NAFTA bull and kick the hell out of ALL ILLEGALS that are not suppose to be in this country.  Everyone has a right to come to this country but you better come here LEGALLY I would not DEPORT illegals I would put them in the pen for say 5 years at hard labor. Then send them back to Mexico or where ever the hell they are from and tell them if they get caught coming back in this country illegally again that  they would have to spend the next  25 years hard labor in a pen. 

      I also  think we should put a LAND mine on the line with mexico and  Canada to keep bad people from coming in this country and causing bad troubles here put say 100,000,000 mines on the border blow up a few illegals and I bet it will stop but that is my thought on the matter. They blame President  George W Bush for all the spending and the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq well  we may have not had a reason to take out Sadam H.but  he was a bad man. The reason we went to war if people can remember is because of 9/11 REMEMBER people. I myself don’t want war over here. We had to act because if we had of not done anything then other countries would have tried to invade our lands. This IDIOT we have in the White House now is making our country WEAK  in the military so his damn screwed up Muslim can try and over throw us with his big black butt and the thing you call a woman I think they both need to be imprisoned for a long time. Well that is what i have thought for YEARS. I have been just voting for the best person running Dem. or Republican but the last election I voted straight REPUBLICAN and that is what i am going to do now and until the rest of my life.The people that run for office just tells us sheep what we want to here and then do the 180 on us when  they get in office. I wish to God that i could run I would be thinking of the people first like if you have insurance,,,,,,,,,,the doctor’s office may charge say $200.00 to your insurance then the insurance pays the doctors’ bill of $50.00 and that is all they will get and not another dime. So tell me this WHY do we have to have insurance that cost $1000.00 a month in some cases for when they only pay out $50.00 tell the damn Doctor’s offices to  just charge what a insurance company will pay and safe all the money for the people then they will have more free money to buy NEW cars trucks houses ect……….I hope who all reads this will get my meaning about the insurance companies.I think if the tax payer is going to have to pay for a congressman’s retirement benefits he should have to serve all 20 years in a roll to be eligible to get a RETIREMENT the only office to be held for 8 years to get it is the President  but he has to do two terms. I hope I can get some feed back on here and hope everyone here is doing great tonight and the up  coming years  in there life’s and God Bless you all and the United States of America REMEMBER THIS num nut blowed to the king of saudi arabia and no PRESIDENT before him has ever done that. He has never SALUTED OLD GLORY in his tenure as the president.

      One more thing I want to say before i go to bed is that when democrats are in office they weaken our military up so bad and it cost 100′s of millions of dollars to do that right. Then when the Republicans are in office they spend 100′s of millions of dollars to build back up what we already had before the dumb-ass Demwitts get done with it.

      I say just leave the military a lone after it gets built to a good and safe size that no OTHER COUNTRY will ever try and take over our ONCE GRWEAT COUNTRY. Well I am heading to bed and you all have a great nights sleep
