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."

Well, Hillary, Chelsea and Humma will likely do a bang-up job of launching the next gender war.

And you thought O'bummer's race-baiting was bad...

Wasn't Hitler a "once in a generation leader?"

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

If Khristie Kreme gets selected, I am jumping the fence to Mexico. Fuck em.

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




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.


While you're at it, tell us your gameplan to remake human nature.

A real leader alright. He fires his aides to cover his substantial ass. I have a hard time believing his little toadies could simply make a call and close 2 lanes on the most congested bridge in the country. I CALL BULLSHIT!

Wish someone would ask him about his time in the Bush DOJ when he was responsible for handing John Ashcroft a $50 million contract.

As far as Christies' latest troubles, resigning would be his true acceptance of accountability and responsibility

How would Christie be different from Hillary?  And don't tell me the only difference is he's twice as big.  Well, maybe not twice as big...


I wouldn't vote for that big government progressive fuck just because he claims to be GOP.  Im sick and tired of all of these people that worship at the shrine of .gov.  Thats THEIR religion, its all they can think about!!  MOAR .GOV!!

Then you should vote for Jesse Ventura. Politicians by definition ARE government. They all worship .gov. Most have only held think tank jobs in between stints as gubmint employees. Don't fall for the trap of a political lifer screaming about "big government".

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".

I'll say this much - Hillary no longer resembles the person in that interview.  Apparently Barry took away her appearance handlers when he spotted her the Sec of State thing.

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.

Fuck 'these poor fat sons-of-bitches'. Christies mom wasn't a bitch, she was a demonic fucking whore for birthing this asshole scumbag. This fat fuck should hang - along with a whole host of others in his biz - at the end of a very stout rope.

Especially if proved that his child-like political shenanigans caused the death of innocent people.
