Cross-eyed And Painless

Ron Christie, as you probably know, is one of the six or seven black professional Republicans in America who make handsome livings letting the Party of Jefferson Davis use them as boot-scrapers:
Ronald I. "Ron" Christie (born August 7, 1969) is an American government relations expert and Republican political strategist, who has also worked as a member of former Vice President Dick Cheney's staff.

Christie is a native of Palo Alto, California, and has received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Haverford College and a Juris Doctor degree from the George Washington University National Law Center. At the beginning of his career, he served as counsel to Senator George Allen of Virginia and as senior advisor to former House Budget Committee Chairman and future Governor of Ohio John Kasich. He began working at the White House in 2001, as deputy assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney for domestic policy, advising him on health care, budget, tax and other policy areas. Later that year, he was elected to the Council on Foreign Relations. In 2002, he joined the staff of the President, serving as a Special Assistant to George W. Bush until 2004.
So it is especially adorable that Ron Christie thought it would be a really clever idea to use the byline which The Daily Beast continues to inexplicably afford him to offer President Barack Obama some brotherly advise on how to get over his "Lousy Year":
  1. Fire your most trusted friends and advisers.
  2. Benghaaaaaaaaaazi!
  3. "Accept You’re Part of the Problem" and throw yourself on the mercy of the GOP.
  4. Also the horrors of Obamacare, Syria, and the IRS!Scandal!
At no point in Mr. Christie's article is the Republican Party ever mentioned except to make some point about Mr. Christie's trustworthiness:
Critics will say I have the Republican Party’s best interests in mind—I have the best interests of our country in mind.

Graduated law school with him - he's a complete tool. Did best me in trial practice though, and my mom was on the fake jury.

I'm actually curious why you are pissed about this? Seems like SOP to me honestly. Anybody savvy enough to know enough about him to give a flying fuck about what he thinks already has their mind made up.

Plus his entire style of speech is comedic. His head moves into position, the octaves go up, and he gets faster and faster. He comes off as a man one step before planting a shotgun in his mouth in the midst of a midlife crisis. The shear spectacle of him is more than enough to make any rational human think "I think I am watching a very disturbed person break down on live TV".

Doesn't he look like a dark skinned David Brooks?
