Chris Christie Is Unable to Remain Silent After Jeb Bush Calls for New Gov’t Regulations on Fantasy Football During GOP Debate.

BOULDER, Colo. New Jersey governor and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie excoriated CNBC for its debate questions on fantasy football gambling and climate change. “We are talking about getting government involved in fantasy football? wait a second, we have $19 trillion in debt, people out of work, ISIS and al Qaeda attacking us and we’re talking about fantasy football?”We worked with the private sector to make solar affordable and available to businesses and individuals in our state,” he said during Wednesday’s Republican debate. “That’s the way we deal with global warming — not through government intervention, not through government taxes, and for God’s sake, don’t send Washington another dime until they stop wasting the money they are already sending now.” New Jersey is among the top 10 states in the country with the most solar energy. Asked whether the federal government should regulate fantasy sports betting the former Florida governor embraced his ever-wonky side and answered: “There should be some regulation. As you saw in the last debate, Team Christie is on offense, and we need your help to keep moving the ball down the field,” the email stated. “Visit and chip in to set up your 2016 lineup with Team Christie today!”

Chris Christie is trailing behind his GOP contenders rivals in the race for the White House, but instead of attacking his Republican rivals, the governor focused his attention on Democrats Wednesday night. The governor opted to steer his criticisms at President Obama and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, starting from the first time he spoke at the third Republican debate when he used a question about his greatest weakness to attack the three Democratic candidates for president. My instinct is to say hell no just about everything about the federal government.” Bush said the sites that allow betting for money operated essentially the same as day trading. John Kasich said in a recent interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he believes in climate change but opposes a fix that hurts the economy. “Man absolutely affects the environment,” he said, adding, “Of course we have to be sensitive to it, but we don’t want to destroy people’s jobs based on some theory that’s not proven.” The candidates may not feel a need to express any view on climate change, because it doesn’t matter to most Republican voters, according to a study in January. How about we get the government to do what they are supposed to be doing, secure our borders, protect our people and support American values and American families.

The Pew Research survey found that just 15 percent of Republicans think addressing global warming is a top priority, compared with 54 percent of Democrats and 39 percent of independents. Pew numbers show a wide ideological divide over climate change, with conservatives generally skeptical of either the scientific evidence or skeptical of regulation. The governor �— who, unlike most of his GOP rivals, laid out a detailed plan to reform Social Security and the country’s economy that would lend itself useful to a debate centered on the the economy — was largely ignored large chunks of the the debate.
