Honest: Would You Rather Win with Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?
Jewish World Review ^ | November 12, 2013 | Bernard Goldberg

Posted on 11/12/2013 5:18:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Those sophisticates at Time magazine made a funny. They put Chris Christie on their cover with the headline, "The Elephant in the Room." Get it? Elephant. Christie. Time magazine did a junior high fat joke right there on its cover. Time's executive editor Michael Duffy explained the cheap shot this way: "Well, he's obviously a big guy. He's obviously a big Republican. But he's also done a really huge thing here this week."

The "huge thing" wasn't only winning re-election as New Jersey's governor, but doing it by appealing to a broad range of voters in a very blue state — not just to his conservative base.

But, hey, no harm no foul. Time isn't even a newsmagazine anymore. It became a liberal journal of opinion a long time ago. So you can just hear those wild and crazy journalists at Time sitting around the conference room table giggling about how they'd get away with their fat joke because, well, in the world of politics, the word "elephant" isn't a synonym with "fatso."

But do you think the gang at Time would ever say Barack Obama is a "dark horse." In the world of politics "dark" doesn't mean "black," right?

Time's cover doesn't necessarily mean that Chris Christie is the GOP frontrunner for 2016. It's way too early for that....

False question from Goldberg.

Crispy is the same as the previous RINOs who have lost.

Cruz represents the base and middle class America. He has a MUCH better chance to beat HEILry.

Krispy Kreme is unelectable for national office.

Cheap scare tactics.

I’m going with Cruz. I prefer to go down fighting rather than kissing @$$ to win.

Christie can’t win. He’s the GOP nominee selected by the Democrats.

The question makes no sense Christie will never win the GOP nomination without the same people who voted for McCain and Romney....Cruz has a chance.
Ok Christie will probably run as a dem anyway. So when are the FRers going to say....but he is the only guys who can win

That’s the answer Brother. I would rather win with Cruz.

The RNC and the New Hampshire Yankees are not going to pick my candidate this year.

I will write in a candidate first.

Sounds like his question is a very subtle form of desperation.

The Ruling Class pawns sure are going all-out to push Krispy Kreme down our throats.

They seem to forget that the USA ain’t Joisey.

Well, dumb question because Christie has no chance at even the nomination.

Sure, everybody is enthralled with is acerbic wit, but some have reservations about his political IQ and some will be looking for payback for throwing Romney an anvil instead of life preserver during Romney’s final day’s of campaigning.

Walker, governor of Wisconsin is the better selection. He can energize the base enough to run a superb ground game. Christie took about 3% of people who would have shown up and voted for him and turned them into ‘no way’ voters. 3% of people who vote is HUGE, and also a guestimate on my part.

The only people Walker has alienated has been Liberals.

I’ll be like the many who stayed home rather than vote for Romney if Christy is running.
