Skip to comments.Christie, Bill Clinton Warm to Latest Bipartisan Presidential 'Bromance' (super barf alert!)
Posted on 06/14/2013 9:29:29 AM PDT by drewh
What is it with Chris Christie and Democratic presidents?
First, the Republican governor from New Jersey surprised his party by embracing -- both figuratively and literally -- President Obama.
Now, Christie's headlining the closing ceremonies of Bill Clinton's annual international forum in Chicago.
Intimates of both men say the real story behind today's event is the private friendship that has developed between the ex-president and a governor who would like to be president. The two have met, traded war stories, talked on the phone, all inside the four years since Clinton campaigned hard on behalf of then-Gov. Jon Corzine, the incumbent Christie beat in 2009.
People familiar with the private conversations between the governor and the former president said this is the second time Clinton invited Christie to play a starring role at the Clinton Global Initiative in Chicago. Christie had been tentatively scheduled to attend last year but was scrubbed from the final agenda.
In other words, this particular "bromance," they said, has been going on longer than Christie's new, high-profile attachment to the latest inhabitant of the White House, Obama.
Insiders say the unlikely pair of Clinton and Christie started with Clinton's taking note of Christie's political acumen even as the ex-president was working against Christie. At the time, Clinton was crisscrossing New Jersey to aid Corzine's floundering re-election bid.
As he worked crowds across the Garden State, Clinton painted Christie, 50, as hostile toward women, the middle class and working people while he openly questioning "why are we having an election?"
Clinton, 66, insisted that the poor economy was making people think ill of Corzine, and that he needed to travel New Jersey because "It matters what the governors do, it matters what the states do," so voters needed to send Corzine back to Trenton.

Christie, being fat and white has a thing for skinny negro guys.
Charlie Crist is positively purple with jealousy.....
Hmmm, is there any other candidate out there that wined and dined us a few times, we had a one night (political) stand, and now we’ve been waiting for their call for weeks, months, or years?
Folks, we need to do some soul searching. We let our infatuations control us. Please knock it off.
Be honest with yourself. We need to crack down on those we want to support, but can’t because of their announced flawed policies.
We simply must demand more of those we wish to grant power.
I personally think CC has been promised a seat on the globalist table, as long as he does his part to make the USA descend into the abyss.
Problem is that when America snatches victory from the jaws of defeat, Christie’s toast.
Get in my belly!
I think I have it all figured out.
Hillary is going to reach across the aisle for a bi-partisan white house. With all the crap going on, a Democrat/Repiblican ticket in 2016 seals the deal.
After Hillary finishes up what Obama started, Chistie becomes irrelevant because by then we will be in full socialist mode.
Christie in going to be surprised. His extremely oversized ego is clouding his thinking. His poll numbers are up and 0bama pats him on the back and he thinks he can be president.
If the Repubs nominate him, I’m staying home.
Looks like Christie’s being invited to have a seat the ‘global table.’ Good or bad, sounds like he’s going to be a player for 2016
It’s in the open now Christie has make the flip.
The problem with Christie’s strategy is that he will never win a GOP Primary. Voters wont forget all of this stuff..
He doesn’t plan to run in the GOP.
He’ll be switching parties before 2016. Count on it.
This is what ABC is cooking up as news these days because it is a slow time for news. There’s nothing going on
I say he drops dead from a massive coronary before 2016.
It wouldn’t shock me. After Obozo and Krispy’s last romantic walk on the beach, Rush Limbaugh said, in all seriousness, he wouldn’t be surprised if Krispy switched parties and ran as a dem in 2016.
He’ll go up against Hillary for the Dem nomination.
Seems like they’re trying to get us used to Jen bush
Christie Agrees to Clarence Clemons Day. Christie's infatuation with leftist-dominated pop culture just adds further evidence that he's a liberal. Recall that this is the same guy who ordered flags to fly at half staff for the druggie Whitney Houston.
Maybe they’re thinking of a Hillary/Christie ticket? Ugh
