Chris Christie declines to comment on CIA torture tactics report

assetContent (9)WOODBRIDGE — Gov. Chris Christie declined today to take a position on whether it was appropriate for the U.S. government to engage in brutal interrogation techniques recently made public. The governor, speaking briefly to reporters on Ellis Island, had little to say when asked to respond to news of harsh CIA interrogations. The tactics, used against…

  1. So, I ask said at 1:54 pm on December 11th, 2014:

    Why are we in a rush to repeat what happened with Dole, McCain, Romney?


    If a moderate candidate can’t win his home state, and help bring in another North Eastern state, how is he going to draw conservative voters out in the South.

    Mind you, I do not want an extreme conservative like Paul or Cruz; nor do I want Bush 3. I want and experienced governor but I think the Christie rationale is deeply flawed.

    Oh well, just one guy’s opinion.

    @so I ask….I will play devils advocate here on a couple of things.

    In the 1996 and 2012 Presidential elections, I would suggest that there was no way the R’s were winning those no matter who the nominee was.

    1996 had a very popular President (Clinton) with a good economy winning in a landlslide against Dole.

    2008 had an extremely unpopular R incumbent, an economy that had collapsed to near depression levels and two unpopular wars. Just my own opinion but I think McCain did about as well as an R could do under those circumstances.

    My question for 2012 is…..of the R primary candidates, who do you think would have done better in the general election than Romney?

    And for 2016, who would your top R picks be for the nomination?

    As for the one R that did win the Presidency in the past 26 years (GWB) where would you but him on the moderate R/conservative R scale?

  3. Walker, Jindal, said at 4:03 pm on December 11th, 2014:

    Kasich, Martinez, Rubio, there are several credible good folks who have much more success and principle to run on, than our guv.. and, am fine with Cruz or Paul, but they won’t get the nomination, the RINO establishment and lib media will beat them down.. or, frankly, the potted plant in my office, would be a better and more loyal president, than the disaster we have right now…

    I like clear contrasts. You may not like my answers, but Perry if he hadn’t stumbled.

    Certainly, Gingrich would have taken a 4 x 4 to Obama as well. He was the smartest guy in the room and he had solid plans.

    This year?

    Governors only are in my list. No Senators, I want solid executive experience with an accomplished record. Chris Christie lacks the later.

    Kasich, Walker and yes Perry all have better records than Chris Christie.

    Walker may not run, after all 3 races in 4 years, but he won them in situation where liberals through everything at him. He’s young enough to wait, but then when it’s your time’ you grab the brass ring.

    Kasich, another solid record.

    Perry has matured and I take him at his word that he was having back problems. He has been solid on sealing the border which appeals to the MAJORITY of Americans.

    He may not overcome his 2012 snafus, but I would like to see him try.

    Bush was a moderate, who gave away too much; but I am thankful he was there for 9-11. Just imagine Al Gore at the helm then.

  5. So, I ask said at 5:06 pm on December 11th, 2014:

    is this right?


    Not in my book. Corzine or Obama didn’t resign for the Senate when they ran for Governor & President. Though Christie is not on my A list, this is wrong to ask. It’s the usual hypocrisy from the lame stream media trying to do everything possible to reduce Christie in stature.

    Sure, if Christie becomes the nominee, I will be behind him because anyone is better than Hillary or Warren.

  6. NO said at 7:13 pm on December 11th, 2014:

    A thousand times no. Two bites at the apple is enough
