Speaking of ‘Unheard of’ Approval Ratings

Over at the Huffington Post, they’re more than happy to tout Chris Christie’s "unheard of" 72% approval ratings which come after Hurricane Sandy.  I don’t suppose it could have anything to do with the fact that he rubbed noses with Obama just a few days before a national election, thereby pleasing many of the liberals in his very blue state, would it?

But of course, Palin supporters like the fabulous Whitney Pitcher have facts, rationality, and data on their side:

As always, Whitney is spot on.  You see, when a public servant like Governor Palin reaches out to Democrats, it’s done in a way that is fiscally sound and makes sense for a government’s long term.  She doesn’t stop to pose for photos, she simply rolls up her sleeves and gets to work.  She inspires even those on the left to join the conservative cause of combating corruption, entrenched special interests, and crony capitalism.

As such, Governor Palin earned a record 93% approval rating while doing her job and it had nothing to do with showing photographic affection for the man responsible for misleading Americans on Benghazi, for rising unemployment, and for adding six trillion dollars to our debt in four years.

      That quote will stay with me lol!!!!

      I notice on blogs on the comments the Liberals give him a pass, that tells you everything you need to know that Christie is a Liberal.

        Mark Levin had his number long before this election.

        • goldenprez

           korn … Something else about Levin that I want to point out.

          Over at Right Scoop they have posted a Levin monologue about the GOP buying prime time television to explain the fiscal cliff.

          This is one of the ideas I wrote to you about concerning neutralizing the establishment Ministry of Propaganda. My concept, for a Presidential run, would involve buying prime time television, by a charismatic candidate (you know of whom I speak), to get "the message" out directly to millions of people.

          I point out that this tactic worked very well for Perot at the beginning. His prime time appearance was watched by millions, and he was able to show his charts, and speak without the filter of the Ministry of Propaganda.

          How many people do you think would watch Mrs. Palin?

          There are quite a few details to this, but is is certainly "unconventional."

          Again, just one of the ideas that I have for neutralization.

          Throw them all out! The status quo must go.

          Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

          Illegitimi non carborundum.

            Goldie, I listen to his whole program and when he suggested going straight to the masses, I thought of your post. You betcha, and it will take someone like Mark to get the ball rolling This is going to be interesting. I don’t know if you are aware of it, but I heard her tell Mark a while back during an interview he had with her, that she listens to him, when ever she can. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were not communicating with one another from time to time. If you notice some of what she writes, and he says on his program have a distinct ring to it.

               korn … Of all the talk show hosts, my highest hopes rest with Mark Levin.

              He is the only one leaning toward discarding the GOP. He has not taken that step yet, but he is way ahead of Rush and Hannity in that regard.

              It is a big jump for any talk show host to begin calling for a third party. However, the suicidal performance of the GOP just might drive someone like Levin to break ranks. I believe he might do so if Mrs. Palin stepped forward to lead such a movement. The question is, of course, will she actually do it?

              Then the next question becomes, if she does it, will Levin back her? If he does, that will automatically put Hannity on board. It has been well known that Levin has been the brain behind Hannity since 1986. It was even rumored, back then, that Levin actually ghost-wrote the first 2 of Hannity’s books. Although that may not be the case, there is no doubt that he mentored Hannity through his beginnings.

              Then the biggest question of all is whether Rush will stop carrying water for the GOP and get behind Mrs. Palin. He does, after all, have the largest audience. Going against the monolithic Government Party and their Ministry of Propaganda is a gigantic step for any of these guys.

              Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

              Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

          • korn8131

            Goldie, you ask me my thoughts on how to  "Neutralizing the establishment Ministry of Propaganda"?  And I replied to you with this."My friend you are right on target. "Neutralizing the establishment Ministry of Propaganda"? You got me there. I haven’t given it much thought. However, it is something that has to be dealt with.  First thing that comes to mind though, is some how we need to get the word out to any talking head on the radio, TV, the internet, and, etc. I’ll have to give some thought before I can give you an honest opinion." Is it a coincidence that Mark gave us the answer or are you communicating with him???

            • goldenprez

               korn … I am not in contact with Mr. Levin. I wish I could say I was.

              I introduced the prime time television idea right before the start of the primaries. At that time, I was stating that Mrs. Palin would be better served by an independent run rather than trying to obtain the GOP nomination. For all the reasons I have stated here, and elsewhere, ad infinitum.

              I remembered that Perot purchased one hour of prime time television immediately after his excellent debate performance. As stated above, he was able to get his message out to millions of people unfiltered by the Ministry of Propaganda. It was effective enough to vault him into the lead in the voter polls, over both Clinton and Bush.

              It so happens that I am a television producer, and have been in television since 1975. I have never worked for anyone else, so I have done everything there is to do in television for my own company, hands-on. My television knowledge is extensive and all encompassing.

              While Levin is talking about the GOP, and suggesting one 15-30 minute show, this is not going to work for a number of reasons. It especially would not work for a third party candidate run for President.

              However, a series of programs, one-hour in length will work with great effectiveness. The tv time is available, and the price is not exorbitant. Especially when compared to other costs of campaigning. Mrs. Palin would attract millions of viewers, as her many appearances on television, including her own shows, has proven in the past.

              This is not say that this would take the place of personal campaigning, but would be in addition to that style of campaigning. Personal campaigning would also include appearances with state Senatorial and House candidates for the new Party slate.

              This type of program could, and should, also be launched on the internet. Internet time, bandwidth, is relatively inexpensive as well. And many people now watch "television programming" on their computers.

              I have other "unconventional" ideas as well. All designed to neutralize the Ministry of Propaganda.

              Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

              Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.

    That Fat-Guy Mafiaso Joey Soprano*  Schtick might work in New Jersey…but folks from where I am from think he’s a rude big city jerk.
    *Notice how Christie only talks tough to the "little people" with whom he disagrees? 

    • dmac8889

      BINGO!!! Christie is a Bush Republican Snob.  The idea that the TEA Party has any connection to this guy is pure FoxNews media spin.

  • dmac8889

    Christie is a fool. Unless of course his goal is to remain the NJ Governor, then all his actions make perfect sense.  If he somehow ever got the Republican nomination, he will lose the ENTIRE Conservative base.  He will never be President unless he runs as a Democrat.

    • bucky321

      which he might

  • Jthom26837

     I said this once, I’m saying it now, and I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face.


    • Jthom26837

       BY the way, forget about that blowhard, Buffet bustin’ Chris Christie. I’m still trying to get this knife out of my back.

  • Dan C

    Exactly right!

  • blueniner

    Ralph Kramden Christie got that photo- op to use in his run for Governor, he will be in tough race if Cory Booker runs against him, Booker who is a Democrat may be more Conservative than Christie, so that could end up being a rough and tumble race.

  • Right_Wingnut

    Not only that, but Sarah didn’t need to stick her nose up the left’s ass to gain approval from Alaska Democrats and Independents. 

  • Guest

    Sarah Palin is the Real Deal!

    Luv ya Sarah

  • nkthgreek

    I give her a 100% approval rating, how about you?

  • IndieDogg

    For Huffington Post readers, Chris Christie-Creme’s ratings are, indeed, "unheard of" because they have hearing tuned only to a single frequency on the extreme left of the radio dial.

    When it comes to Sarah Palin, they suffer from the three-monkeys syndrome: See no Sarah, Hear no Sarah, Speak no Sarah.

    Or, they’re just really, really bad at math.

  • Freempg

    Made to order for the LSM, the perfect symbol of a "right wing" fascist pig.

  • misterlogic0013

    I don’t believe he will be in for another term .. they hate him on the streets .. what he did for OB is his only chance if he does a switch .. don’t put it past him .. union backed state .. mini Philly style. 

  • colint

    Based on the picture in the lead for this thread "Beauty and the Beast" would be an alternative heading.

  • Carol Cumbie

    Who believes anything the Huff says. Christie is not like very well by his people in NJ. Just recently they put out a notice telling home owners  they had 2 weeks to get the mess clean up after that they would be fine 2000 a day until it was cleaned up. He cares more for the muslims using the governor’s house for muslims to celebrate a muslim holiday. Plus making a muslim a judge. Regular citizens he has not treated them well. I would never vote for someone like him. He would not make a good leader.He is not a conservative he is more like a liberal.

    • n4cerinc

      We all know how much they liked McCain…that is until he was the Republican nominee. They sure turned on him fast. Even his stellar military record could not save him from the smears the LSM leveled at him.

  • JubaDoobai!

    That photo needs a caption: THE SUCKER AND THE PLAYER.

  • PhilTan

    As Rush once said, "The left will tell you who they fear".

    PSS: I think the Guv made her opinion of Christie clear with her comment about him having his " Panties in a wad".

    • Freempg

      One could parachute off the fiscal cliff with panties that big.

  • MarkRNY

    Guess this goes along with his "unheard of" waste line/tonnage–Christie’s tipping the scales all over the place!

    Still thousands without power in NJ btw.

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Thanks for sharing my tweet, Steve!

    Not only did Gov. Palin have better approval rating, she also oversaw a credit upgrade and a good job record among other things that Christie did not achieve. 

  • Joy Daniels Brower

    I heard a good comment on a local talk radio station here yesterday: Namely, "If Christie has lap-band or gastric bypass surgery, you’ll know that he’s serious about running for POTUS!"  Actually, this assessment has nothing to do with his RINO politics and his total lack of Conservative "street cred;" but unless he talks off 200-plus pounds over the next 4 years, he won’t be running for ANYTHING – he’ll be at the end of The Race. Period!  No one can carry that amount of weight around and not seriosly endanger one’s heart/joint health… 

    • n4cerinc

      You are exactly right. That is the first hurdle he needs to clear; his weight. It smacks of an undisciplined lifestyle. It is the very reason Mike Huckabee put off half his weight to run in 2008. He even has a book. If you have seen him lately, it looks like he’s having trouble keeping the weight down. Like it or not, we live in a society where image is everything. So Christie’s biggest challenge is his own body, literally.
