Chris Christie Attacks Marco Rubio, and People are Shocked, SHOCKED…

chris-christie gotchaWatching the media talking about why Chris Christie has such a harsh tone toward Marco Rubio is actually quite funny.  The role of Christie in the GOPe larger political scheme has ALWAYS been to use him as the junk yard dog.

It is, quite simply, his job.

Do you need to go back to Christies’ time as head of the Republican Governors Association and remind yourself when the DC based GOPe apparatus was furious at Scott Walker?… Walker was facing a recall, Christie was given instructions to let him hang, and the RGA sat by doing next to nothing.   This was DC-based punishment for the Tea Party kicking out the chosen GOPe candidates.  Destroying their internal adversaries is what the Old Guard does best.

c1main_christie_romney_02_cnnOr, do you need to remind yourself of 2012 when Christie was given instructions by the Old Guard to go get that Gingrich guy who was becoming a risk to their next-in-line candidate, Mitt Romney?

C’mon, you can’t possibly forget the month long war Chris Christie waged against Newt Gingrich after Gingrich won the South Carolina 2012 primary.

Chris Christie is a tool of the DC establishment (GOPe) with a very specific purpose.  His role is so predictable when we identified the 2014 back room conversations happening within the professional political class (prior to the rule changes) to get Jeb Bush nominated, we immediately said Christie would be entering the race as a defender of Jeb.

Why?  Simple, this is always Christie’s role.

The Republican Old Guard will never allow anyone to easily jump the line and defy their next-in-line candidate Jeb Bush.   Part of the GOPe strategy is always to surround their nominee with people to defend his pedigree.

In 2012 Chris Christie brutally attacked Gingrich on behalf of Romney, in 2016 Christie is attacking Rubio on behalf of Jeb Bush.

The role of Christie in New Hampshire is less about his own candidacy, and more about positioning the Old Guard to win the battle of Jeb -v- Marco.  After New Hampshire, things might change, but before -and up to- the New Hampshire vote, the “establishment” candidate is not yet determined.

If Marco does not defeat Jeb by a sizable margin, the battle continues.  If however, Marco can beat Jeb by a wide margin, the opposition within the GOPe will shrink rapidly, and inner-party signals to support him will be dispatched in the 11 days prior to South Carolina.

The conversations are all closed door, but South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be the visible representation of the determination.

        Reposting this here, because it fits:
        Insofar as Rubio’s past, I think it would be better to bring up his first job: working for a drug lord doing “odd jobs.” (Which is a fact.) “When I was 17 I was at military school doing well in school, when Rubio was 17 he was working for a family member who was a cocaine distributor and doing badly in school. The family member served time for it, so it’s true. Rubio admits working for him says he was doing odd jobs.”

        (Cocaine pushers and their former employees are not acceptable candidates for Pres.)

        He can also hit him with being roommates with a porno-producer (without mentioning gay.) He can hit him with being in the car with this guy in a park where drug deals are said to go down. “Was he still working with the cocaine cartel by then, or what?” (No gay-bashing necessary, people will make the association themselves)

        And then buying a speedboat when he was supposedly strapped for (his own) cash. “Now why would he need a speedboat so badly when he was strapped for cash in Miami, was he hoping to earn extra money using his boat? I haven’t seen anything about him being a commercial fisherman, so it looks bad.” Leading to his poor spending and poor money management, using money not his own (Fla.’s $).

        Leading to his becoming a JBush protege…goes to JBush’s lack of sense in ” backing a cocaine-dealer-connected guy even though JBush’s own kid became a coke-addict. Bush’s bad judgement or else something’s shady there, so sad for his daughter, so sad.”(Mentor/mentee 2-birds w 1stone hit)

        This could be a leading point right into immigration, because Trump wants to stop drugs from crossing our borders.

        Which could segue right into the immigration of Rubio’s Cuban parentage, and that they were not citizens when Rubio was born. Anchor baby, Cuban citizens parents. And then on to Rubio’s open borders mandates, gang of 8, etc. “If you want amnesty for people who broke our laws and came here illegally, if you want a weak candidate, he or Bush are the same.”

      Marco Rubio isn’t gay.

      He worked as a shirtless dancer at gay events and picked up money on the side at age nineteen as a gay prostitute, but he himself isn’t gay. Gay for pay is not the same as legitimately gay.

      Remember that after his first year of college, handsome and petite Marco lost his football scholarship. He could have barely scraped by on a regular job but putting yourself through school is expensive, especially in Miami in the go-go eighties. Even more so if you have a little cocaine habit.

      So Marco worked for some cocaine dealing relatives for a while, but he never dealt cocaine — Marco was respectable — he only laundered cash through their front businesses. It was nothing directly criminal. And he picked up extra cash meeting with older men that liked his good looking physique.

      It’s all natural for a nice Miami boy. He’s as morally clean as we can ask anyone to be. Marco is the first mainstream Cuban-American candidate who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy.

  9. A couple weeks ago it was Cruz going after Rubio before the last debate (without Trump), which created a faux tension between the two that was carried over into the debate. Rubio was already prepared for the debate as he was privy to the moderate’s questions beforehand, so of course he did well on the post debate polls. Now the establishment has sicked Christi on him, which will carry on into the next debate, and again, Rubio will be prepared and will come out like a rose. What would be great, if Trump threw a left curve ball by being the one to confront Rubio on his Gang of Eight bill, Obamatrade, Obamanukes, poor vote showing, etc., instead of Christi, which will destroy the establishment’s game plan.

      Let me give my theory: There is nothing Trump would love more than to see Marco win the “establishment” mantel. There are many easy attacks on Rubio, but one is that he is an anchor baby. He has even less of a “natural born” claim than Ted Cruz does.

      Anchor baby with history pushing amnesty

      vs. Natural born citizen who wants a WALL

      It would really be a defining divide and a truly battle for America, the kind of War Trump would love.

      Like a brilliant tactician, Donald Trump is saving this juicy attack for the right moment. And the media can’t “scoop” him because they’d love for Rubio to be nominated. Its beautiful.

  14. Ok, I’m starting to get confused.

    Are you saying that Rubio isn’t really the GOPe guy yet? If that’s the case, why is the MSM pushing him so hard? We all know they’re just an arm of the established ruling class in this country.

    Also, how is this good for the GOPe to be tearing each other apart? If, as you say, Rubio doesn’t score a decisive victory over Bush, then the GOPe candidate remains up in the air, which is massively deterimental to their long term strategy of vote splitting against the outsiders.

    Additionally, Rubio is already picking up the good endorsements, especially in SC, so doesn’t that make him the presumptive GOPe nominee? Or, is there a war/power struggle going on within the GOPe?

    Please help me understand this because I am trying to follow your logic but it doesn’t make sense in several areas.

      Even if Rubio does pretty well – it will be hard for him to win 1,237 delegates by election time. Same with Trump. With these many people staying in the race, NO ONE can easily get to 1,237 – and don’t forget they also have to win 8 states (by 1 over 50%). So i’m now starting to worry that we WILL have a brokered convention – and then the GOP elites can pick (and arm twist) delegates to eventually vote for whomever they like. Could be Jeb, could be Rubio. They won’t back Trump though.

      If Trump wants to win, he has to run the table early.

      I sure hope he know something we don’t know and has a GOOD PLAN up his sleeve to do this!

    Keep an eye on Iowa too. Did anyone else notice the governor’s remarks about Cruz’s “unethical and unfair” practices ended with the statement: “I think there’ll be repercussion to that”?

    Between the dem’s (typical) low-life behavior and this Cruz-caused fraud, Iowa is taking a big PR hit. The integrity of their entire caucus process is being called into question. If they want to be taken seriously in the future, something serious needs to come from Iowa’s political leaders. Perhaps there’ll be repercussions of a consequential magnitude – right after the NH primary. I sense something is up. I may be wrong of course…

      The integrity of their entire caucus process is being called into question.

      Absolutely! I sat back after this Iowa debacle and thought it through, and the inescapable conclusion is that the entire ‘caucus’ construct is fraught with the potential for…manipulation. The party ‘masterminds’ can organize the caucuses in several ways, to achieve their desired ends. It’s a VERY dirty process; absolutely in need of ‘disinfecting daylight’.

      In the first example, let’s just say that Little Jebbie was really polling well in the run-up to Iowa. The Iowa republican party apparatus would then orchestrate a rock-solid caucus, utterly regimented with more precision than a military honor guard. Absolutely no ‘slack’ in the system at all, to ensure their guy gets the nod.

      But conversely, as things happened in reality, we saw Little Jebbie languishing in the polls–he literally owned the margin of error. So, the party apparatus then orchestrates a sloppy, loosey-goosey caucus; plenty of opportunity for double-voting and shenanigans of every stripe. The result is not that Little Jebbie made any headway, but the despised front-runner Trump was diminished. (But only slightly: 7 delegates to Cruz’ 8.)

      The caucus model is the easiest to manipulate. Standard elections also can–and will–be manipulated: boxes of ‘lost’ ballots; boxes of ‘found’ ballots; not counting absentee ballots; not even delivering ballots to US service members in time for their votes to be counted; the dead rising from the grave to vote; ‘dirty’ contractors running the voting machines, etc, etc, etc.

      I feel ‘dirty’ just writing this stuff out. Gawd…the world of politics sucks. It’s a wonder a guy with Trump’s stature would care enough to throw his hat into this mess–yet another reason I hold him in very high esteem.
