Chris Christie, the sometimes abrasive but always entertaining governor of New Jersey, is set to be announced Tuesday as the keynote speaker for the Republicans' national convention later this month.

***SNIP***

The scheduling decision was first reported online by USA Today early Tuesday and confirmed by Republican officials directly involved in convention planning. The Republican officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the formal announcement was not planned until later Tuesday.

The GOP-e thinks he is the best RINO to stop the Tea Party in 2016 if Mitt loses so they gotta groom him...Son of a Mitt as it were.

I’m looking forward to this one. I don’t agree with Christie on everything, but I love his no BS way of speaking. Good choice for a keynote speaker. Glad he’s not the VP pick (grin), but a good choice for keynote, IMHO.

He’s “earning his stripes” in the NJ Trenches, as it were. He’ll be a contender in ‘16, if he doesn’t have any serious weight-related health problems. He’s a GOP-e ‘darling’.

Where have we heard that before? He’s made-to-order for GOP-e.

If every conservative treated the left as the joke they are, the way Christie does it, we’d never lose an election.

If we had more Tea Party candidates who could chew the left the way Christie does, then we wouldn’t have to worry about Christie getting nominated. The only one even remotely close is Gingrich, and even he isn’t the perfect conservative and he’s got way too much personal baggage.

I guess in a RED (as in Far Left) Blue (as in Far Left-go figure) State like Jersey a man like Christie looks like Goldwater.

He could only be a Democrat here in SC.

I do like him about 90% of the time. The other 10%... meh. He does what he has to in that RAT-infested place. I lived there and worked in Midtown for 20+yrs, before moving west in ‘89. Haven’t been/won’t go back, since.

You can put that on an endless loop and keep playing it. He’s perfect for GOP-e.

Sure tells us where the GOP-e comes-out on everything, if he’s to be the new *rising star for 2016*, doesn’t it?

The Left and the GOP-e share two things in common: A love for Big Government and a hate for Christian Conservatives.

Did you know you’re not even allowed to pump your own gas in New Jersey? Some worthless union scuzzball must pump it for you.

There's no union involved. It's a minimum wage job.

Sadly, so true. I’ve always said that the GOP-e is just the lib-dems’ “away jersey”. Flip-side of the same coin. Not a damned dimes worth of difference.

Suits Romney perfectly---it'll be RINOs on parade.

And in the meantime...

Palin's Absence From Convention May Expose Rift

It’s definitely “old news”, and I doubt that I’ll watch any of it, either. We all know how “the script is written” and how it’s going to go, way ahead of time. No surprises; all very scripted, except for what the RP-ers will do. Any thoughts on their possible antics?
