The mainstream media has been fawning all over Chris Christie since he won his reelection bid on Tuesday. One Washington Post columnist asked if Christie is the GOP's Bill Clinton, I kid you not. They are acting as if he just won the presidency in 2016 instead of what really happened. Christie got a huge boost from his camera hogging Hurricane Sandy days and then the Democratic establishment decided not to challenge him at all and left a very good progressive, Barbara Buono on an island with no money or support.
In her concession speech, Buono praised supporters who "withstood the onslaught of betrayal from our own political party."
"The Democratic political bosses, some elected and some not, made a deal with this governor," she said, according to NorthJersey.com. "They didn’t do it for the state. They did it out of a desire to help themselves."
The media couldn't be bothered to look into his record at governing. Maybe they should check out the NJ Star Leger editorial on him. Be that as it may, the media is jonesing for more Christie so all four major Sunday talk shows have booked him for the same day. it'll be Christie all day, all the time.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will appear on four of the five Sunday shows this coming weekend, POLITICO has confirmed.
The tour -- not quite a "full Ginsburg," as he is not scheduled to appear on CNN -- comes on the heels of Christie's landslide victory in the New Jersey gubernatorial race and amid intense debate about his prospects in the 2016 presidential election.
Christie will appear on NBC's "Meet The Press," ABC's "This Week," CBS's "Face The Nation" and Fox News's "Fox News Sunday." He is not scheduled to appear on CNN's "State of the Union," though he did give an exclusive election-day interview to CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday.
I like that, 'graces the cover.' I didn't know he had just replaced Pope Francis. Well, I hope Pope Christie blesses the set of the NBC show before he sets foot on it. And then I hope he blesses all of us as well. I do know that Chris Mathews will be taking communion from him as soon as possible.
“The Reagan Democrats are alive,” Matthews said. “They’re working class, middle class, mostly Catholics—I’m just saying, it’s a fact—ethnic people, people who came two or three generations ago. They tend to be very, very patriotic. And they like reality. They don’t like Al Gores. They don’t like people like [Michael] Dukakis. They want real people with blood in them. People that talk with attitude.”
