NJ Gov. Fatso: U.S. a “paternalistic entitlement society waiting for the next government check”

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

NJ Gov. Fatso, AKA, Chris Christie, opined Tuesday before a receptive Republican audience that included former president George W. Bush and Henry Kissinger that the U.S. is in danger of becoming a “paternalistic entitlement society” where people sit on the couch, “waiting for the next government check.”

Christie spent most of his 30-minute speech on New Jersey budget issues, but brought up national policy toward the end. He said it is the least optimistic period he’s ever seen for the nation.

“It’s because government’s now telling them, stop dreaming, stop striving, we’ll take care of you. We’re turning into a paternalistic entitlement society. That will not just bankrupt us financially, it will bankrupt us morally.”

The irony of the morbidly obese Christie dissing Americans and calling us coach potatoes apparently is lost on the New Jersey governor. On the other hand, maybe he’s trying his hand at comedy?

    Can somebody explain to me how New Jersey elected a Republican governor? I used to live in the Garden State and no one I know ever voted GOP in their entire life. What the hell happened to New Jersey? I’ve been gone only 8 years. How did it change so fast?

    Rachel – Don’t forget Christine “Christie” Todd Whitman. She was a George Bush accolade who promised to reduce car insurance. It never happened.

    In fact, auto rates increased during Christie’s tenure.

  3. The Real Adam says:

    Christie is auditioning to be Romney’s VP.

    He’s a fat clown. New Jersey elected him and now they’re the laughing stock of the eastern seaboard.

    The Real Adam,

    New Jersey LOVES Gov. Fatso.

    A new Quinnipiac poll in New Jersey finds that voters approve of the job Gov. Chris Christie (R) is doing by 59% to 36%, his best score ever.

    Go figure?

    Christie disgusts me. I hope he chokes on a pork chip.

  6. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    Where on earth did you get this picture of Chris Christie?

    ROFLMAO! He’s a crime against humanity.

  7. TOM339 says:

    Couch potato? Seriously, Christie?

    The irony isn’t lost on me that the New Jersey governor is blathering on about Americans being couch potatoes when he was so lazy he had to take a helicopter to his kid’s ball game and couldn’t walk 100 feet so they ferried him by car.

    Pot, met kettle? Methinks Christie needs to STFU.

  8. lea-lea says:

    This is one of the most outrageous things Christie has ever said. The Real Adam hit the nail on the head. Clearly, Christie is auditioning for Romney’s number two.

    Sitting on the couch he apparently knows.

    “…the U.S. is in danger of becoming a “paternalistic entitlement society” where people sit on the couch, “waiting for the next government check.””

    How can you be a couch potatoe (haha) when you need to work eighty hours a weeks to pay for your apartment or house and property taxes? People in the US do not want a government check but when the GOVERNMENT fails to do its part and regulate on behalf of its citizenry to the point that the cost of living has seemingly outpaced earnings exponentially it is necessary. So, if you and the other politicians do your jobs properly government checks will not be needed.

    Useful info. Lucky me I found your site unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this twist of fate didn’t
    happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
