Chris Christie Mitt Romney.JPG

Chris Christie worked very hard to relect Mitt Romney. (Here’s just one example: an interview I did with Christie when the New Jersey governor was in Lordstown, Ohio on October 10.) The idea that the New Jersey governor shouldn’t have invited the president to tour a storm-devasted Garden State is absurd, and the reception he gave the president was appropriate. Christie did not cost Romney the election. Far from it in fact. If all of the GOP had worked as hard as Christie did on behalf of Romney, the result might have gone the other way.

Sandy, Candy and a turnout technology edge beat Romney, with a huge assist from a slavishly devoted MSM working throughout the year –from George Stephanopoulos’ contraception question forward. Not Chris Christie. The attempt by Manhattan-Beltway media elites to fan the flames of this story is an obvious play to both weaken the governor’s re-election bid and to sow discord among the GOP.

When will Republicans figure out the lesson that if everyone in the MSM is repeating a damaging story about the GOP, it is not done to help the party but to cripple it?

Like the GQ “How old do you think the Earth is? “question of Marco Rubio, the “Republicans angry at Christ Christie” nonsense is agenda journalism at its worst. The attempt to win the 2014 elections for the president and his party and get a head start on keeping the White House in Democratic hands four years hence is already underway in the MSM. Every single Republican who poses a threat to the president’s agenda is going to get a ride in the tumbler, and those who play along with it are just useful idiots.
