* Christie has many critics among N.J. conservatives
* From subsidies to guns, Christie has liberal bent
* Could weight become a factor?
Is tough-talking Republican Chris Christie tough enough for the Tea Party?
Christie's potential entry into a 2012 White House race dominated by conservatives would electrify the campaign but trigger scrutiny of his record as a Republican governor in heavily Democratic New Jersey.
Hailed by conservatives for staring down public employee unions in New Jersey, he may face questions about whether his beliefs on such hot-button issues as illegal immigration and climate change match up with the conservative Tea Party movement expected to play an important role in choosing the Republican nominee.
"I think there is an interesting possibility that the more people look at him, the more people will have concerns," said Ryan Rhodes, chairman of the Tea Party in Iowa, a key early voting state.....

I hate Christie, but on the bright side, Christie is the RINO most likely to have a fatal heart attack and pass the Presidency to whoever the V.P. is.
Yeah, I know that’s mean-spirited. I don’t care.
Not sure about the Tea Party, but he is NOT conservative enough for my support.
No. He’s being propelled by reporters looking for a scoop.
NO. NOT NOT BUT HELL NO!
EAGLES UP SARAH!
He reminds me of Grover Cleveland, who was a Democrat!
Two Good Grover Cleveland Quotes ....
The lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people support the Government, Government should not support the people.
The ship of democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those on board.
And then Grover Cleveland gave us this quote ....
Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of our civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence than ours.
I think Chris Christie is a Democrat in a rather large RINO suit.
The short answer is NO.. :)
Oh HE** the NO!
CHRISTIE GOES BERSERK WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT MUSLIM JUDGE APPOINTMENT:
“But it was a follow-up question on the fear of Sharia Law that set the governor off.
Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, its crazy! he cried. The guy is an American citizen! He concluded that the Sharia Law business is just crap and Im tried of dealing with the crazies, adding with disgust and frustration that its just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.
NO THANK YOU!!!
Governor Sarah Palin isn’t the flavor of the month. She’s been fighting for conservative causes and candidates since September 2008, and before.
Christie was on TV last night being interviewed by Piers Morgan.
Christie said he would govern the country with the same policies as in New Jersey.
Shouldn't be! Stupidity apparently was a factor, though, in '08!
Christie is pretty much a one issue “tough guy” - and I admire his standing up to the vile teachers’ union. However, that Christie thing is more ego driven than it is conservative.
He’s weak and soft on 2nd Amendment issues. He needs to stay in Joisey.
that said, if it comes down to him or bumbles - then it’s Christie hands down
