Not far at all. A fat-ass Lou Costello look-a-line f’ing RINO would be a heavy load indeed.

I enjoyed watching his take no prisoners attitude but that was te end for me. He is dead to me. He is worse than a rino. He is a traitor.

When Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie took Obama to a Atlantic City, New Jersey to see the storm damage from the big storm called Sandy and Christie decided to bizarrely gush over Obama and hug him, I could not believe my eyes. My first thought was that Obama or an Obama inner circle person or an elect-Obama person must have threatened him or his family in some major way. That thought was only strengthened when a day or so later Mayor Bloomberg of New York City also surprisingly put on a big nervous over the top act of praising Obama and recommending him for president and scraping the barrel for a plausible reason. Reason: the environment. I understand they both needed federal disaster relief aid for their regions. But, their behavior seemed to go further. Under the not too good acting, both Chris Christie and Mayor Bloomberg looked pained and frightened when as they lunged overboard and acted out of character, as if their very lives depended on pushing Obama over the top to being reelected president.

A political anminal with a futre I don’t intend to have any part in.

His choice to lavish Obama at the critical hour rather than simply making like the New York Democrat and tending his States business seems to demonstrate that this man has at the very least very poor judgement. Perhaps not as poor as his new York Counter parts in all other areas but in the critical political area he is sorely lacking.

Assuming hes not wolf in sheep clothing which I am prepared to believe he is as you suggest. Hes got me wondering what Ann Coulter sees in the man, and if she really still sees it.

(Art.) It’s impossible to believe that this was all a product of storm-induced blindness to the political implications rather than Christie working an angle to appeal to Democrats in New Jersey ahead of a tough gubernatorial race potentially with Cory Booker.

That has the solid ring of "now we're down to the brass tacks".

If his political ambitions extend no farther than another five years in the governor's residence and maybe 12-18 years in the Senate, he needn't care at all what Republicans or conservatives in other States think.

But it won't work. Blacks will elect Booker with a 98% straight-ticket Democrat vote (and some help from Axelgrease sending extortion threats to key election officials, and a big chunk of runaway Mexicans voting 75/25 Democrat), and 12 years from now we'll have to think really hard to remember who this guy was.

These East Coast Republicans are always built up by the East Coast media and East Coast pundits, like Ann Coulter.

Like their coverage of NCAA football: They always have perennial faves, like Notre Dame and anyone in the ACC.

I think I would much rather for him to be in New Jersey than the radicals who are planning to run against him. Think twice before you write him off completely. Let time take care of him and see what happens. You have to realize Mitt had to carry the ball. It's odd to see so many people walking on glass or pins and needles, making excuses while eating their own. Maybe he is done politically-though, let time sort it out. He was good standing up to the teachers unions. When a storm comes, govs and presidents suck up to one another. Bush even hugged that goof ball Major Nagin (Nagin blamed Mr. Bush for most of the problems) This is not my cause (Christie) Do what you want with him. Just saying..think about it.

All the news is how he is running around with the democrat senators now, both of whom are do nothing scumbags. He will either be their governor soon, or gone.

Is Frank Lautenberg still one of them? If Lautenberg kicks the bucket, will Christie knock over chairs and hatracks to get to a podium to appoint himself to the seat? That would short-circuit the suspense and put him in Easy Street for life, and no Booker fight next year. Whaddayathink?

PS. Bush even hugged Brownie.....and told him on camera he was doing a good job when Bush knew Brownie had messed up/Bush got all of the blame. He did the same with that inept woman governor of Louisiana who was taking orders from Harry Reid. God, and storms and hurting people do things to people. Brings out a caring side..even for those you don't like. May have been this situation.

And now Cory Booker is going to live on food stamps for a week. Sounds like he’s posturing for the governorship because now he can identify with those in NJ who are hurting.

I think if he runs, Christie can kiss his governorship goodbye.

Yes, Christie is overweight and I think he knows it. What disturbs me is all the fat remarks on this thread. Its as bad as the lefties calling people names. I don’t endorse what Christie did, nor have I walked in his shoes, but I know people who are overweight and are good friends of mine. It pains me to hear so many degrading adjectives toward him.

Slam him for what he did and his policies, but can’t we be a little more cautious on the name calling?

Christie will lose his reelection bid.

He committed the two errors fatal to all center-left Republicans.

First, he completely demoralized or enraged Conservatives.

Second, Democrats NEVER vote for a fake Democrat if they can vote for a real one.

Christie won in 2009 because Republican turnout was very high and Democrat turnout was quite low.

That will not happen in 2013.

Howdy Catsrus. I hear what you are saying, but try not to be toooo hard on me. I am totally guilty of calling Christie dirty names that I would never ever call an overweight person that I had respect for. I love diversity and the world just wouldn’t be any fun at all if everyone looked all alike! But in this case I am disgusted with Christies behavior, his selfishness, and his very poor decision making skills and its just so easy to express it by calling the man a bloated blubbering slob. But in NO way does that mean I view perfectly nice overweight people with the same negativity! In another example I could say, I hate Christie’s stupid face. While if his same face was on someone else it might be a perfectly nice face. Anyway you sound like a very nice person and your concern for others is commendable.

We nominated Mitt Romney and John McCain, guys.

Yep, and then there was Bob Dole.

The Pubs have a list. When it is "your turn" you will be rewarded with the nomination because "you paid your dues" abd nothing in heaven or on earth can change that. Rising to your level of incompetence is a virtue in the party.

Praising obama (sucking up to get goodies for your state) will get him points with whoever is in charge of the list. The media has a few votes on who makes the list.Christie will be the new-style larger tent bipartisan Pub of the future, only to be shot down in the week before some future presidential election when it is discovered his favorite recipe for ribs was made by a white guy.

You seem to forget that Christie is governor of NJ. I seriously doubt there are many conservatives in that state anyway. The best they can hope for is a RINO, and that’s what they got. The Northeastern Republicans are a whole different breed.

““Christie,” a Romney adviser said, “allowed Obama to be president, not a politician.”

Are they kidding? There is not one thing that obama does that does NOT involve being a politician. Christie allowed himself to be used as a photo op in husseins re-election. Ask the people affected by Sandy how much better off they are now than when obama said he had their backs.

It’s possible Christie used the “I love obama” situation to his advantage. He wants to run in 2016. But he couldn’t run against Romney so he found an opportunity to help obama. I don’t trust any politician from New Jersey.

In 2016, the GOP will nominate Jeb Bush a "our savior" after the horrors of Obama. The convention will go wild at the idea of the Bush family riding to America's rescue, but will forget that Jeb is a one-worlder just like his Agenda 21 promoting Poppy and his Patriot Act signing brother.

The Bushes are the other side of the same coin as the Kennedys and Rockefellers - One-world government elitists who take us all as rubes. They are right - we are rubes. You'll see that in 2016.

Christie is an attention-whore. His convention speech was nauseating. I’m not a huge fan of pop-psychology, but I suspect it’s a consequence of suddenly being in the limelight after a lifetime of being the fat kid left on the bench after team selection.

Of that I'm certain.

Mister Christie went from rock star (kinda) to persona non grata in one big fat flip.

He will never serve as governor again, or anything higher than that. One suspects that he won't even have the "numbers" to run again.

(I just removed a Twinkie remark as too mean.)

” He said that Christie had to suck up to O on camera to win his future re-election in Blue state NJ which he needs to do to have a chance to get the R nomination in 2016. Adding that his popularity in that area has soared compared to Boomberg and Coumo for that photo-op.”

Sounds plausible. Anyway, this RINO whale is a POS

I agree with much of what you say.

However, Christie's one shot at reelection is based on overwhelming approval and high turnout by New Jersey Republicans.

That part of the equation collapsed when Christie poured unconditional - and completely undeserved - praise on Obama just days before the national election.

Christie nailed his own political coffin shut when he responded to completely reasonable political criticism from Republicans by telling Hard Left reporters that he didn't “give a damn” about the outcome of the presidential election.

Christie has no future in the Republican Party, he will be decisively beaten in 2013, and he will start a new career attacking Conservatives on Hard Left TV programs.

I think that’s exactly what’s happening. It’s perfectly plausible. The left, decades ago, began infiltrating and taking over the media and academia. They’ve accomplished the infiltration of, and are in the midst of the takeover of mainstream “Christianity”. One of the few remaining large institutions left for them to infiltrate and then rot from the inside out is the only significant opposition political party. Some of the Republican politicians have been more leftist than Democrats of a long-gone era. They seem to be using the double tactics of pulling actual Republican politicians to the left, and posing as Republican politicians themselves.

It was pointed out at the time that Christie has to run next year, and he will need every 'rat vote he can get. Sucking up to Obama was a way of currying favor and possibly having an easier run next Fall. This was all about Christie's election, not Romney's or Obama's.
