YO! IOWA! I gotcha CONSERVATIVE right HE-AH! OH! FUGGEDABOUDIT! And I'm BLUNT, baby!

Chris Christie Reassures Iowa Voters That He's Conservative Enough

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/24/chris-christie-iowa-freedom-summit_n_6539648.html



DES MOINES, Iowa -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) walked out on stage at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday and resoundingly rejected the "conventional wisdom" that his East Coast style doesn't play in the heartland.

"If I was too blunt, too direct, too loud and too New Jersey for Iowa, then why do you people keep inviting me back?" Christie asked. He pointed to his warm relationship with the event's organizer, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), whom the governor described as "a good friend."

Christie's remarks closed out a long day of speeches at the cattle call for conservative White House hopefuls, which also featured Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R).

Christie has faced questions about his ability to connect with social conservatives, who are crucial to winning the early Iowa caucuses. His straight-talk, no-nonsense image has won him many fans at home, but the act can come across as grating to those hearing him for the first time. He sought to soothe such concerns on Saturday by doing what he does best -- being blunt.

1. Here's the entire clown car's problem in a nutshell

The kind of Republican who can win the Iowa caucuses is not the kind that can win the 1144 delegates he needs to go to the general election and get his ass handed to him by the public.

2. "you people"? where have I heard that before?

Oh, yes, that would have been Ann Romney, remember her?

This thing is shaping up nicely. We've got a pile of horse shit getting larger every day...

5. Yep. I deliberately chose not to flag the "you people" thing in my post...

...because I assumed it was going to jump out and say "howdy."

I'm sure that in Chris Christie's world, we are all "you people." Or maybe "youse people."
