It’s pretty obvious New Jersey governor Chris Christie is warming up his political engine to make a run for the white house in 2016. Actually, it was a very smart move when he snuggled up to Barack Obama in the wake of hurricane Sandy. That moved him away from Republican radicals and a lot closer to center. This was a nice prelude to last week’s press conference where he pronounced his certain knowledge that the American people want equal opportunity, not income equality.
Equal opportunity, he proclaimed, equaled the possibility of greatness while income equality was certain mediocrity. And that will be the basis for his presidential run in 2016. But wait, doesn’t that sound a lot like what that other fellow said? Let’s see what was his name? Oh yes, that would be Mitt Romney.
What was it that Mr. Romney promised? First he promised to repeal the so-called Affordable Care Act. Then he promised jobs, employment opportunities and work. He promised to cut government spending and the size of government. What was the voting public’s answer? Well Mr. Romney has a job today, but its not in the White House.
Simply put, the voters want all the free stuff government can give them and that is not jobs or employment or repealing Obama Care. Chris Christie is going to run with the same message that Mitt Romney tried and he will have the same results.
Barack Obama and his government have demonstrated again and again that they can do literally ANYTHING and there will be absolutely NO consequences to them so long as the public perception is that the government is giving them free stuff. There is little doubt Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton intend to try to cash in and continue that perception.
Both sides (Republicans and Democrats) have got it wrong and there are lots of people flailing about trying to save the country from its government, but I don’t believe that’s going to happen. Chris Christie and his party are going to crash and burn just like Mitt Romney and for the same reason.
I have had literally hundreds of people write to me praising Barack Obama and his insurance plan. They pledge their absolute loyalty to him and his party out of gratitude. Anything he or his government does, or has done, that is illegal does not matter in the least they will remain loyal.
This is not the country I grew up in. I’m glad I’m old and not likely to live long enough to see the government finally completely destroy my country.
