Druckenmiller On Chris Christie: "Once In A Generation Leader"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With the FBI joining investigations into the New Jersey Governor's Bridge-Gate scandal (and David Wildstein 'pleading da fif'), it would appear Chris Christie is calling in some favors. Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle reports this moring that the billionaire money manager Stan Druckenmiller proclaimed, "Governor Christie's actions yesterday reinforces my admiration for him," as he (rightly) pointed out that "the country thirsts for a great leader. A leader's actions in crisis are revealing." Druckenmiller went on to explain in his statement that he "believes Chris Christie is a once-in-a-generation leader... and he is showing essential executive skills as a manager: ensuring accountability and taking responsibility."

I mean, did he mean this in a GOOD way, or a BAD way?

Did you read the WSJ editorial? It makes good points contrasting Christie to Obama.

 

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1000142405270230434790457931083230...

 

Frankly, if we postualte that we will always have corrupt leaders, then let's get the least corrupt - what else is the choice?

 

Christie handling this crisis really shows just how pitiful Obama and Clinton are by comparision to the way they have handled their problems.

The obvious point of the picture being that there is an alternative to political leaaders who are corrupt. Would you share with us a single point in time when they actaully existed?

 

All I read are complaints with no realistic cure. But maybe you have the Golden Answer.

No. The Democratic Party is full of idiots, but even they are not stupid enough to make that shrew their nominee. Didn't we go through the "Hillary is the inevitable Dem nominee" thing back in 2008?

 

She was even more confident back then than she is now: "It (the Democratic nominee) will be me".

She was inevitable, right up until those "idiots" realized that Obummer had less known baggage, and an aura of mystery, himself being an unknown. He also was able to appear authentic while reciting teleprompter spew.

All of this making him a very attractive "magic Negro."

Simply put, it was political calculus. He had the ability to either fool (the youth), or inflame a much wider range of the population (flyover states).

Given that this scam won't work again so soon, it's time for more change.

Besides, I expect to see the GOP nominate a female as well, as it ensures the upcoming gender war.

Can we stop blaming the whole youth for obama. 40% of the millennial generation is nonwhite, nearly all of whom voted for obama. When the entire millenial generation only leans 60% pro obama, that tells me that the white youth actually opposed him by a healthy margin.

Lets blame those who are responsible.

Those responsible for his election were of all ages, and all economic conditions.  They were guilt ridden fools because they had more or had the skin color in common with people who did terrible things before they born.  They were ignorant, some idealists and others members of the FSA who do not understand nothing is free.  Some were out to punish people who had acheived more than they are willing to work for.  Many are out right communist who will steal from you to get what their greed desires and to buy votes to sustain their power.

Many of us are not to blame because we saw what would happen if Obama and other liberals would do if given the power.

We should stop dividing and blaming each other by age and class and work to defeat the traitors.

The procedure Christie underwent is known as lap band surgery, in which a band is wrapped around the upper part of the stomach, making people feel full on small amounts of food.

This surgery is fucked up in so many ways that I don't even know where to start.  These poor fat sons-of-bitches.

Lap-Band and QE both try to make feel FEEL better, rather than addressing the underlying problem. They both try to cure the symptom, and not the disease.

Only to be replaced with the next "scum" so not sure what your hurry is.  

He's not the symbol, he's just another face in the crowd of what has become the norm, not the exception and if this "traffic gate" happens to be his biggest crime (which it's probably not) then he's way ahead of the game.  This is nothing compared to Corzine.  This is nothing compared to what is happening on a national level.  I hope his opponents have something a lot more substantial than this scandal or it's a bit of a joke to be hollering for his impeachment.   We've always been taught that a scandal like Watergate wasn't so bad but it's the coverup that is reprhensible.  Well from what I know he didn't cover up and fired "responsible parties" in short order.  I guess this will be a test case on that bit of conventional wisdom.

To wit, 

CNN reporter Andrea Mitchell - Alan Greenspan's wife.  Watch for her "Under Cover" work on how Alan and  the FED engineered the corrent mess (/sarc)

Tucker Carlson - Perennially trying to get another show since Crossfire.   Swanson Food heir

Anderson Cooper - The 360 guy with the hard hitting news.   Vanderbilt Heir

Christiane Amanpour - Reporter. wife of James Rubin, Clintons asst. secretary of public affairs, executive editor of bloomber news...

Those are a few.

Just to keep the media message "On Point"

Stick to trading, Stan. Chris Christie's ability to 'bridge' the gap of partisan politics and love for obamacare does not make him a leader for the people, it gives him an opportunity to increase the grip of the ruling class at the expense of the citizens.

will be of straying from it.
Keeping to the main road is easy,
But people love to be sidetracked.
When the court is arrayed in splendor,
The fields are full of weeds,
And the granaries are bare.
Some wear gorgeous clothes,
Carry sharp swords,
And indulge themselves with food and drink;
They have more possessions than they can use.
They are robber barons.
This is certainly not the way of Tao.

Druckenmiller is an aloof asshole. 

That being said, *if* Chris Christie can get past this (although I don't think he won't), he's the GOP's only shot of beating Hillary in 2016.

BTW, for those interested in some wacky internet predictions/stories, here's a story on when the "Big Earthquake" in CA/Japan will happen; this from Joe Brandt from 1937 (which he envisioned while in dream coming out of a concussion after falling from a horse):

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/joebrandt.htm

During his dreams, he envisions a Los Angeles where:

- Women's dress was very short and showed alot of skin (this was very different than how women dressed in 1937)

- a lot of guys my age with beards and wearing, some of them, earrings (again, different from 1937)

- Half size cars seen everywhere (CA has 3x's the VWs of other states, and add in Prius/Tesla)

- People walked around having their own "tv screens" (which we could now say are cell phones)

- The President was a "was bigger, heavier, big ears". 

Food for thought if the guy ever does make it (or the Dem challenger to Clinton, former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer)

I cannot agree, Mr. Druckenmiller.  I saw Christie for the 1st time at his press conference yesterday.  I didn't like the high-pitch of tension in his voice.  He was wringing his hands while shuffling backwards and trying not to show that he was worried about what was behind him, so we wouldn't know he was shuffling backwards while facing front.

"billionaire money manager Stan Druckenmiller proclaimed, "Governor Christie's actions yesterday reinforces my admiration for him," as he (rightly) pointed out that "the country thirsts for a great leader. A leader's actions in crisis are revealing." Druckenmiller went on to explain in his statement that he "believes Chris Christie is a once-in-a-generation leader... and he is showing essential executive skills as a manager: ensuring accountability and taking responsibility."

Yes, because only EXCEPTIONAL LEADERS fail to investigate the real cause of lane closures on the busiest bridge in the world, then joke about the seriousness of the event, and then supposedly "find out" about it only after damning emails are released to the public showing his employees did it on purpose.  It doesn't surprise me one bit to discover many Republicans can't find any blame for Christie and, indeed, actually think he looks better for it.

Normally the banker preferences for a puppet president who will make the appointments they want and keep the transfer of wealth from American citizens going to the bankers as usual is kept a secret.

Apparently, that’s old-fashioned; now it’s time to select the banker candidate up front - Christie to run the race and be defeated by Hillary, keeping America in banker hands far into the future.

Win or lose, Christie makes sense to obscenely wealthy billionaire and banker insider, Duquesne's Stanley Druckenmiller, who wants to put a machete in Paul Ryan’s hands aimed at cutting baby boomers’ Social Security benefits just as they begin to retire.

Wrote Dr. Clarence B. Carson: “Socialism vitalizes, animates, gives meaning and purpose to statistics. It does this by attributing a magical quality to them. They are to be the means by which economies are to be planned, controlled, and all efforts are to be concerted.”

Why is it that in 1776 the country was awash with several great "once in a generation" leaders (Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, etc. ) but in the present day and age this fat and loud tub of lard is the only thing that anyone can offer up?  If this is all that's left as an example of a "great leader," we're screwed, 100% completely and absolutely screwed.
