Why do people like Chris Christie?

I've never seen this guy say anything thoughtful and he always seems angry. Why is he so appealing to confused peopled like Kotter?

They just replaced older regulations that worked for new ones that didn't.

The people who predicted the bubble buildup, and eventual economic collapse, blame the collapse on too much intervention in the market place, not under regulation. I think I'm going to listen to the people who actually saw this coming, not the people who want to figure out what happened after the fact.

It's always pragmatic to vote for what's popular. Always.
actually, i read his empty bullshit and find it much more rational than your general blatherings about all things paulian/austrian...

you should stop with the no-one bullshit, really...

TJ, BEP, and even BL....think "nobody" is everyone; when in reality it is merely their lunatic fringe ideological soul-mates here, that are belied/outnumbered in the pos rep I get. Heh.

My beef with you isn't you're positions, it's that you never put any thought into any of them.

Tell me PRECISELY what view I have that are fringe. I admit having strong convictions, but I submit that they are not fringe.

My strongest convictions are 1st amendment, 2nd amendment and fiscal discipline. The rest I am completely flexible on.

If there is evidence to the contrary, demonstrate it, or kindly be ****ed.

BTW - no offense, but Go Bowe's sudden BFF status with Kotter legitimately made the saddest I've ever been on CP. And some dude killed his GF then himself in front of the CEO and coach.

aye laddie...

there is a difference between objecting to "nobody listens" and being a bff, i hope...

at the very least, kotter is entertaining and occasionally thought-provoking...

hell, i even agree with him once in awhile, but don't hate me for it...

BL, I included you because you and a handful of others....constitute the "nobody" part of Isaac's hyperbole. I would not put you on the lunatic fringe with TJ, BEP, KillerClown, Pete, and other RWNJ wingtards. I actually admire your willingness to engage in rational debate. I just don't have your patience. For you to say I don't put any thought into my positions is just patently silly though.

You and I may disagree more in the last 5 years than we did in the early years of CP...but if you'd bother to notice, I'm willing to engage reasonable attempts at dialogue here--it's just that so many are beyond reasonable, I don't try with them. Conservatives seemed just fine when moonbats like jAZ were my object of my wrath, but as a moderate I object to ideological extremism on both sides. Sorry if that somehow translates into "never putting any thought" into my positions for you--but that don't make it so.

John and I go way back; we have our disagreements, but also some common ground. The difference between you and he seems to be he understands principled moderation is a legitimate philosophy--but most importantly he understands that I don't argue with ideologues, rather I just use them for entertainment. He and some others do appreciate the difference, even if you don't.

Leeches, some of 'em, yeah; just not on the scale of insurance salesmen, car salesmen, lawyers, CEOs, or corporate board members who have them beat by geometric proportions. Not even close....public service vs. self-centered avarice.
