Skip to comments.Honest: Would You Rather Win with Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?
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.
How about win with cruz? The last two times the rinos lost.
Krispy Kreme is unelectable for national office.
Wow, Christie is creepier than I had imagined.
Cheap scare tactics.
Don’t fight back.Go with the flow.
That is what cost the Jews a few million of their kin.
I’ll take WIN with Ted Cruz...
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.
Win what, exactly?
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.
I forgot to add:
What sells in NJ politics is not going to sell in most of the US.
Sounds like his question is a very subtle form of desperation.
I would rather never hear another word from Bernie.
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.
I’m so sick of politicians.
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.
Is there going to be a pie eating contest or something?
I’ll be like the many who stayed home rather than vote for Romney if Christy is running.
3 if you count Dole
I don’t like to play identity politics, but IMHO if we don’t run a woman, we’ll lose.
Christie has no chance to win, he is already the designated loser according the GOPe and MSM
Dem crossover votes will push Christie over the top in the primaries.
I wouldn’t consider a win with Christie to be any sort of a win at all.
No, I would not.
Which would mean we’d have to agree on a Conservative candidate early on. Fat chance, given what I saw here in 2012.
I’d rather win with Cruz. Winning with Christie is still a huge loss.
Which require picking a candidate early in the primaries and getting them through. Last two times the pickings were muddled which spread support.If cruz or palin throw in I’ll back them agressively.
If Christie doesn’t do something about his physical condition, he may not make it to another election.
I do wonder if we will really have a free election
If voting for a “Moderate” which is just another cute word for “Leftist” Romney or McCain would have won easily, but the didnt do they Bernie..in fact, they got their asses kicked..what did Romney gain, North Carolina..the Dems had already abandoned NC because of gay marriage..we still lost because we keep on picking these cheesy leftists who go around pretending to be Conservative when they are in fact phonies
Honestly, would you rather agree with me or die a long painful death. Your choice.
like losing with McCain and Romney? Let’s try running a stinkin conservative for a change!
Thats why the Dems voted for him in New Jersey, they were probably laughing their asses off as they voted for him..they knew that by Christie winning, it raises his status as the 2016 nominee, which is what they want
Honest: Would You Rather Win with Cruz or Lose with Fatso?
Not buying the false premise from the GOP-E again.
You want to win GOP, then put up a Conservative for President.
Perhaps a better way of putting the question would be:
Would you rather vote for Christie who might be able to defeat Hillary in 2016, or vote for a conservative candidate who represents your ideology much more closely, but has absolutely no chance to win?
The question being posed really seems to be “Hillary or Christie?” Because unless a lot of things change, Christie (or Jeb, or whomever ever GOP-e decides on) will be the candidate.
Christie won because we had McGreavy and Corzine to benchmark him. Those two were so bad the people of New Jersey elected a straight tough talking guy who has been better so they reelected him.
He can win a presidential race. But he doesn’t have the principles the purists want. He is not a reincarnation of Ronald Reagan. But he is a smart guy who knows how to get things done. He has some personal baggage but who in the game of politics doesn’t?
He would be better than any other moderate Republican and more driven than the likes of Cruz and Paul.
If he wants it he’ll convince enough Republicans to vote for him and he would beat any likely Democrat candidate. He wouldn’t let the Disaster of Obama and even the cronyism of the Clintons go unmentioned in a presidential race.
He’s not a nice guy but he’s a winner.
So they’re already trying to shove Christie down our throats! He’s the next in the line of Dole, McLame, Romney losers that ensure the dems win.
No, no, you don't understand he's really, really a severe conservative. He just has to be that way or he'd never get elected in
Massa New Jersey.
You just don't understand politics. You're too much of a puritan and so now, that you didn't vote for a socialist, we are going to be stuck with a socialist in office for four more years - good going.
Well, I know he support abortion, gay "marriage," and is anti-gun.....but, but Reagan would've been called a rino on FR too, ya know.
sometimes you just have to vote for the lesser of two evils
Don't worry, someone will be buy with another quart of snake oil to sell.
Christie can go to hell!!!
No more North Easterners ever!
No Christie-—not under any circumstances.
The press is hoping Christy gets nominated precisely so they use this stuff against him.
There are also more ways to lose than merely one!
This sound just like every statement by the Establishment GOP since it ran Bob Dole right through Mitt Romney.
No thanks Mr. Goldberg!
I'm not crawling in bed with political whores anymore, for the sake of "winning" according to you LOSER prognosticators!
Put a harness on the boy, a Schrader valve in his @ss, fill him with helium, and send him off to the Macy’s parade...
You can for for the fat slobtard but Conservatives won't. There will never be another RINO/GOPe president.
Then let's agree on a Conservative candidate now and begin promoting that person and building the necessary coalition for a victory. Any suggestions?
