Pawlenty staffers, fundraisers in talks with Chris Christie to enter presidential race
The Daily Caller ^ | August 19, 2011 | Amanda Carey

Posted on 08/19/2011 1:05:31 PM PDT by supahstar2005

Since Tim Pawlenty ended his bid for the presidency last Sunday, his former staffers and key fundraisers have held off from endorsing another candidate or moving to another campaign. There’s a reason.

Team Pawlenty is waiting on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to make a decision about entering the field as a presidential candidate, The Daily Caller learned Friday.

Key staffers who formerly made up the Pawlenty campaign have been in discussions with Christie all week and the talks are still ongoing, sources told TheDC. They are reportedly very anxious to have Christie officially place his hat in the ring. At one point, there was discussion of Christie flying to Texas at the beginning of the week; he ultimately nixed that plan

With Rick Perry now in, Christie should wait until 2020. I like Christie, but he needs to lose weight.

Welcome Chris Christie. Or should we just call you NOT RICK PERRY the 2nd. NOT RICK PERRY the 1st is already taken by Paul Ryan and NOT RICK PERRY the 3rd is reserved for Jeb Bush.

Don’t bother Chris. Saying you support some of Obama’s policies make you unelectable.

Christie has NO chance. He’s great for Jersey, but he doesn’t articulate conservatism in a way that will inspire the primary electorate.

I'm not sure if it would make him "unelectable" but I'd say it would make him "unnominatble"

I agree with you 100%.

With Baraq looking like a sitting duck for 2012, everybody wants in now.

The R nominee is very likely to be our next POTUS.

Christie has no support from the conservative core, ergo, he will have much more difficulty winning the nomination than his supporters think.

And there is a good possibility he would lose to Obama in a general election.

Unions across the nation would turn out in droves to vote against him.

Most substantial conservatives would be hard pressed to be motivated to get out to vote for him because his establishment viewpoints and compromising style would produce policies that worked against conservatism just about as much as Obama has.

Very conservative people would view his winning the Republican primary as an indication that the Republican party was tone deaf as to conservative values. It would also make a third party probably take shape, as conservatives would begin to leave the Republican party that deserted them.

IMHO...

The vast number of candidates could indicate a badly fractured Republican/Conservative movement.

I strongly suspect "The Divine One" will be reelected. One scenario being Trump enters at the last minute drawing off votes from the Republican candidate. After the election Trump is rewarded with a massive land grant and given "stimulus" funds to help develop the land.

You do have a good point. Why is the establishment so determined to get RINO Christie in the race. Are Romney’s numbers that bad? And how does getting Christie in the race solve that problem?

Hmmm...that's actually a good point. Pawlenty's staffers and fundraisers did such a good job for him (not!) that we probably wouldn't have to worry too much about Christie gaining a lot of traction. Maybe just enough to siphon off about 20% of Romney's base. Not bad.

Pawlenty wants anyone except Bachmann, because he wants the VP spot. He knows they won’t nominate 2 people from the same state. That is why he attacks MB so much.

I’d have to think that latest Rasmussen poll showing Perry ahead of Romney by double digits with likely voters must have them running scared. I don’t think they’ve ever understood the Tea Party-type conservatives, and they think we might be duped into going for Christie because he talks like a tough guy and took on the unions. They really do think we’re that stupid.

Baloney. He has lots of conservative support and appeal. He will not get the nomination with some of his opinions, but you could say that about anyone. Anyone.
And there is a good possibility he would lose to Obama in a general election.
Baloney. As long as the GOP candidate does not blow bubbles with his drool he will win the Presidency.
Most substantial conservatives would be hard pressed to be motivated to get out to vote for him because his establishment viewpoints and compromising style would produce policies that worked against conservatism just about as much as Obama has.
LOL! Are we talking about the same guy?
Unions across the nation would turn out in droves to vote against him.
Yeah, and the unions will stay at home for the other GOP candidates? Give me a break! Regardless of who the GOP nominates, the unions will turn out in droves to vote against him. If the GOP nominated Olympia Snowe they would paint her as the devil incarnate and turn out in droves to vote against her.

Even if he doesn’t get the nomination it would be good for the GOP if he gets in and Palin too. You wouldn’t hear too many cracks about the GOP not having any heavyweights (no pun intended) running. Romney, Palin, Perry, Christie....a pretty formidable line-up against the Democrats I’d say.

I’m with you - shouldn’t we Republicans have a “the more the merrier” view at this point? If only the primary season could help define candidates like it did in the past. Look at the 1976 Democrat primary system. It had 23 participants and it took a LONG time for that to shake out - of course it yielded Jimmy Carter, oof - although he did win the general election.

Bring on Chris Christie, Sarah Palin and anyone else who wants to join this fandango. We are facing the most critical election of our lifetime - 4 more years of Obama is going to destroy our great country and probably make me close the doors of my small business. Let’s get everyone in the ring and see what they have, for crying out loud.

Believe me, he’s not that great for Jersey. Just ‘cause he yelled at a few union thugs doesn’t make him great for Jersey - and I voted for him. Why doesn’t he yell at the Verizon union thugs who are destroying telecommunications in my part of the state.

Today he is pretending he stood up to the Port Authority over unfairly raising toll fares. Total bull, since the fix was in from Day 1 and he knows it.

And his phoney calling out of the idiot Bloomberg over the 9/11 ceremonies - after refusing to condemn the Ground Zero mosque! He thinks the voters are fools. Sadly, maybe they are.

At this point, the only thing I like about Christie is what everybody else dislikes about him: his weight. It is authentic and all-American.

I have no interest in a Chris Christie presidential candidacy. The New Jersey governor is not a conservative and I view his possible candidacy as nothing but a vehicle to siphon off votes form Perry and/or Bachmann, who are conservative, if not quite ';Reagan conservatives'. Chris Christie convinces the politically unsophisticated that because he's fought the unions and talks tough (he's from New Jersey, after all) that makes him a 'conservative'. I don't think so. His weight is also an issue, even if it might be considered bad form to mention it. The media will, often. It makes him appear undisciplined , a gift to leftist political cartoonists and a ripe target for the inevitable 'fat jokes' from the left, especially liberal 'comedians' such as Bill Maher and Dave Letterman. Ouch! However, even if Chris Christie were built like a prizefighter, I still would not welcome his candidacy because he is a lot closer to RINO than TEA party.

Pawlenty staffers resisted an overture from Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, who is also rumored to be considering a bid...
Now, that concerned me more than anything else in the entire article. We need Paul Ryan where he is doing what he's doing. He's still young. His day will come. Maybe he should sit out the next 8 years, if a Pubbie gets elected in 2012, and run for Governor of Wisconsin. And, then run for President.

BUMP! This is so self-evident.

YET...the Pawlenty Team wants him.

This should be a warning to every conservative, Reaganite and Tea Partier...keep an eye on these phonies who worked for the phony Pawlenty.

They are obviously deceitful infiltrators. From Gingrich, to Pawlenty, to Christy...THEY HAVE NO CONSERVATIVE ELEMENT IN THEM WHATSOEVER.

They should be widely identified...and whapped hard. And a scarlet "C" for commie-lover should be put on their foreheads.

We need to make these dangerous political incursions from some concealed agenda FAIL in their schemes.

If Pawlenty’s people are chasing this guy that tells me all I need to know. Which isn’t all I do know since this is the same guy who said about 3 days ago that he has admiration and agress with 0zer0 on a number of issues. Funny, but I don’t agree with the current resident on anything. Sounds a lot like a McCain. Besides, he’s awful on the RKBA, AGW and Islam.

Thanks but no thanks.

I like Christie, but he needs to lose weight.
______________________________________________________________
Believe it or not, that would hurt his candidacy somewhat. The “cosmetic” effect of a candidate goes a long way with a lot of folks. Also, that much weight is NOT healthy; he could have serious health issues by age 60. But, don’t count on him losing weight, it’s not happening at his age.

Agree totally, and not only do I want to see whoever else thinks they have a shot in there, I wouldn’t even care WHEN they jump in, even if it’s as late as at a deadlocked convention. I can’t figure out all these self-important amateur political strategists getting all upset because somebody isn’t declaring themselves a candidate when the armchair quarterback thinks they should.

BTTT.

I like Christie on fiscal matters, and for having the guts to publicly tell the unions to shove it. For that matter, he has plenty of guts (meaning courage) to campaign for statewide office looking like he does. But the gun-grabber crap is an absolute killer for me - NFW I will ever vote for him because of that. Further, the GW crap is an absolute non-starter for me. It is not science in any way, just another means of strangling business in this country (not China or India, mind you, just here) and for its backers to skim taxes and fees for themselves.

These 2 stances disqualify Christie for the Presidency in my view. He would, OTOH, make a great OMB Director or possibly a good Secretary of the Treasury (though that's a bit close to the top of the line of succession for my tastes).

Bottom Line: You don't trust me with guns, I don't trust you with power.

IMHO...

He has lots of conservative support and appeal.

His conservative support and appeal is from "conservatives" who do not staunchly support the whole conservative platform, mostly those Republicans in heavily liberal areas who call themselves conservatives but are lenient towards sodomy, islam, deficit spending, etc. I had said he had no support from the conservative "core", meaning people who sign on to the whole platform.

To illustrate, NJ has been in the grip of the likes of McGreevey and Corzine prior to Christie. It is the home of RINOs, it has numerous large mosks, is apathetic towards immorality and remains under union thug control. After Christie's election, he has a basically balanced budget for fiscal 2011. For us in NJ, that's an earth-shattering move towards the political right. But everything else, every underlying problem, is still there and when the next less disciplined Governer is elected, NJ can go right back to deficit spending. And NJ has about $30 billion in debt, which, of course, can't be paid down until there are surpluses. And it has, of course, a state pension system that is in a mess as well. IMHO, if that's all a Republican does, the market would have accomplished the same thing by denying NJ the abilility to sell bonds.

I feel the need to send a message to the Republican party that I simply will not support RINOs of any stripe. When they lose, and someone like Obama is elected - Americans "in the middle" politically get burned badly by his actions and it convinces them to think twice before voting him in again. If a RINO is elected, he creates decades of election fodder for Democrats and the left, since the RINO overspends, creates new Feral agencies, expands existing ones, compromises with unions, welcomes jeehadists-in-waiting, allows government to spit on the 2nd Amendment; basically operates like a socialist. That sets the stage for future Democratic victories and the cycle of failure starts over again. People - voters - actually think that they "tried" conservative policies under the RINO - but they didn't. If a true conservative is elected, they can manage the budget well, but they can also appoint super-conservative Judges, eliminate an agency or two, try to make some wholesale changes to shrink the scope of government control, and then some piece of definite success of the principles can be demonstrated.

Unions across the nation would turn out in droves to vote against him.

Since he's had high-profile confrontations with them, he would generate a higher turnout than the Repubs currently running. The Repubs running for President currently can speak with a "voice of reason" tone in their campaigns since they have not vociferously fought with unions like he has. Then, once elected, instead of having a very public grandstanding blowhard fight with unions, they can take real action.

Losing weight would be relatively easy for Gov. Christie with the right frame of mind and some support.

Coming to grips with the reality that it is folly to befriend those whose sacrosanct mission is to destroy us as a people is a much greater struggle.

Chris Christie slams fearmongering over Sharia law

Aug 4, 2011
New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie defended his decision to nominate a Muslim judge to the state Superior Court against conservative critics who warned that the new judge will implement Sharia law. The notoriously blunt-spoken Christie calling their fears “crap” and “crazy.”
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/chris-christie-slams-fearmongering-over-sharia-law-210648303.html

Anyone stupid enough to want to appoint Muslims into government positions is dangerous.

Watch yer mouth LOL just kidding

What worries me about this is that people may leave Romney in the dust and go big for Christie. He talks tough and is aggressive. I don’t like what comes out of his mouth anymore. What if he wins? A lot of people really like him.

He and Romney could also work together like Huck and McCain last time.

People who don’t pay attention could be fooled.

Who knows anymore? I need a notebook to keep track of people running. For me, I won’t have any choice in it anyway with a May primary here. The candidate is usually chosen long before.
