Christie's biggest problem is his literal embrace of Obama after Hurricane Sandy. No amount of chivying will change that.

My incessant attempts to chivvy a new director led to my own promotion to leadership.

Dang snow again overnight...I think DH is worn out from it already as he failed to shovel or clean off my car. I am determined to get out today.

The media can chivy all it wants about DD. They can't stand the fact that the Christian part is true and it resonates. Growing beards can help your company succeed and evangelize at the same time? Win-win.

It’s a long way to 2016, this issue is contrived,

The woman, from FT.Lee at the basis of a coass action civil suit,,,was on TV this morning. Said it took her 90 minutes to get across the bridge,

Previous reporting was 4 hours, lol

You know whats missing from all of this.,,the canned local footage of the alleged traffic jams.

Christie, won yesterday...and by a large margin.even noted lefty Steve Adubato went apeshit, on the news this morning, saying”Benghazi? IRS? Fast and Furious”.

Which, imho was the purpose of this sham, Christie stepped up, fired people, acted contrite, and said

I didn’t know...but The Buck Stops Here,

Let Hillary!ous run against that

I have not like Christie since he embraced O helping him win reelection. Will not vote for him. Not interested at all.

You know whats going to get me banned..like I almost dod during the St.Sarah thing...

People have been whining for two decades, for someone that will kick a Democrat in the balls, before punching them in the face.

They get one, and with zero knowledge he’s a RINO.

We elected a Governor from Texas. Who couldn’t wait to get into bed with Ted Kennedy.

We tried to embrace a Governor from Alaska based on ideological purity and in doing so, laid down like whores, for ....John McCain?

Then rick Perry, passed the purity test, and we wound up with....Mitt Romney...

And the last two resulted in 8 years of Obama.

Anyone, unwilling to face those realities, is a CINO

It is not possible to know how conservative Christie may or may not be, because of the electoral issues in getting elected in a blue state.

Go ahead, start shooting the guy down. Lets run Perry or Romney again.

Hillary! Can then return the Silverware to the White House.

President Hillary! Will appreciate that.

Easy cowboy, you’re preaching to the choir with me. There is a certain amount of gamesmanship, and even brinkmanship, in the process and although it can be distasteful, it is the only way to beat them at their game.

A fuy from Texas two stepped to the left.

A guy from NJ if he wants a second term, needs to go which way!

And tell me where I am wrong, on the whining for a street fighting man?

I’ll be honest Ti, what is really pissing me off, isnt the retarded purity test...

The dems are out for him. This morning on Fox5, a lib was defending Chubbikins, but the Dem strategist was trotting out Hillary!s talking points.

Tony Soprano. (Racially insensitive)

Culture of Corruption in the state house (ayfkm)

He’s a bully. (Lazio redux)

Conservative blogs are already turning against him (lets see how many newbies we start getting)

If our side falls for it, we effing deserve her.

When you get the government you deserve, enjoy the gov’t cheese, just don’t break out the whine.

All I am saying, is people on our side should shut up, and evince their conscience in the primaries, this far out, you’re effectively working for Hillary!

Politics, is Pragmatism. (Like T5 said, thats not a personal statement, I heart you. It’s a case to be made :-)

Are you on drugs!

He’s in the Peoples Republic of NJ, where a sitting Governor, sucked the last drop of blood from a dead man to pass an “Assault Weapons Ban”

Dave, you’re prob the smartest guy I know. Game it out.

If he ain’t Gov. He ain’t Prez, if he gets there. He wants what every first term administration wants, a second term. Does pissing off gun owners get him there?

For Christie, it’s a simple calculus. I’m not a scary crazy redneck. Libs can like me too.

Ti, this is my point. Guy from the right has to move left.

Guy from NJ, if he wants a second term, has to move right.

I understand that he can’t be a big “gun guy” in NJ, cause he’ll scare off the liberal idiots.

But, if he wants to be president, he needs to affirm the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Some action in Trenton on this, even if symbolic, would be a good idea, too.

That’s a debate, and running mate move,

His statement will be along the lines of “i believe in the 2nd, but no right is absolute” (which, predictably will set the idiots off), when all he is saying is...gun control os off the table, I have real things to worry about.

He doesn’t give a damn about gun control. I live here, he’s done exactly squat, it’s been status quo. No reason to expect different

Rme. Youve driven past Irvington...he increased his margins among all minority subgroups in the last election.

Look.either people smarten up, or we are getting Hillary! In 2016.

Obama will turn his machine over for speech $ and the Clinton campaign is already at work,

You want your premonitions to come true,,,encourage our side to not STFU, so we can settle this without helping the Dems.

Democrats, are already ONTHEAIR talking about websites like ours,

The ? Will come up in the debates, but he will also pick a solid southern Gov as a running mate, to quell that

Personally, I think Perry is best, Jindal has rime to wait,

But how effing stoopid do we need to be when we have Dems, trying to decide our primaries, and we help them.

First rule of politics.

A Month, is a long time.

By my estimation 2016 has many of them between now and then.

Simple question, do you think Hillary! Is going to crow Ft.Lee! When the response is Benghazi! ?
