Last Night, We Got Our First Look At Chris Christie With The Woman He Might Pick For Vice President
Business Insider via Yahoo News ^ | November 5, 2013 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 11/06/2013 1:22:50 PM PST by upbeat5

In his whole re-election campaign, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) has invited only one sitting out-of-state officeholder to campaign with him: New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez (R), who joined Christie at eight campaign events Monday, including a rally in heavily Hispanic Union City.

In many ways, Martinez is the perfect complement to Christie, amplifying his strengths as a politician. She is relatively young (54) and a moderate who maintains strong popularity in a blue state. She has worked closely with a legislature held by Democrats and bucked her party by taking the Medicaid expansion in Obamacare. Perhaps most importantly, she's almost 2,000 miles removed from the poisonous politics of Washington, D.C.

Martinez is great, but nothing Christi does will make me vote for him. Nothing.

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez (R)

I believe Ms Martinez needs to clean up the emergency room after those cops did several rectal jobs on that junk yard owner. She's been strangely quiet where she should be putting the police chief and the "officers" in prison (not jail) for their outrageous abuse of that poor citizen.

Oh yea..right...and here we go with the media continuing to tell us who is our candidates....

I have said we will know the game early on this time because they are doing the same thing they did with Romney......they’ll put up others but Christy is their guy...with likely Jeb playing a similar role as Santorum did just to make us think we have a chance....

It’s how this takes shape that will tell us what we need to do....I think Cruz, Lee and Palin know this and have their own plans we will not see until later on...

The MEdia and Democrats are showing their hand now....

There is this little state named IOWA in his way, folks. And they have a lot to say in this matter. I hope more than Mr. Christie wants to hear...

If this continues, there is going to be a third party in 2016. Anointing two moderates with iffy track records is not going to fly. Trying to anoint another northeastern moderate is going to be a guaranteed loss in the general.

Martinez is good overall but she’s showing to be too easily swayed on several issues. She’d be fine with a solid conservative at the top of the ticket, but not with a left of center moderate from NJ. That ticket would be tepidly supported at best.

Pay attention Badger...the media IS pushing Christy...and sending shivers down peoples legs at MSNBC already.

They did the same thing with Romney remember?...and barely said a bad thing about him until everyone else dropped out.

We are seeing ‘their’ game board being set up.....however we have folks setting up our players as well....but the horses are coming into view.....even if they’re just getting a sip of water at the trough.........

As long as we allow Iowa and New Hampshire to coronate our candidates for us, there is a good chance Christie will be the Republican nominee in 2016. He will be anointed as the latest incarnation of “the-only-candidate-who-can-win-the-general-election.” Then he will proceed to lose to Hillary, and the game will start again in 2020.

So if he runs in 2016 (I doubt he will), the left will beat him up with the “quitter” label too.

That comment sounds all too familiar????.....are you really going to play that game this time around? I think we have a better chance then to buy into their political manuvering they’re doing now. I choose not to get on their bandwagon...they love to hear us say “if it comes down to it”..... they’ve set the hook and got a bite...don’t bite!

I hope it doesn’t come to that, and will work to prevent it. You can do what you like. A lot of people “wouldn’t play the game” and sat out the last two Presidential elections, and look where that got us. They may have done what they felt was the right thing by not voting for the approved (lousy) candidate out of principle, but we all still have to suffer the consequences of a radical Dem President regardless.

Right. We might as well speculate that Cackles Clinton will pick Krispy as VP nominee, on a “national unity” ticket.

Well, how special that Krispy got some *help* along his campaign trail. More than he did for Cuccinelli. Neither of these two Pubbie Governors popped in to help out Cooch’s campaign. That tells me all I need to know about Suzy & Krispy.

How about a subpoena for Clinton, put her under oath, and have her testify about Benghazi. It’s a two-fer, we need answers on Benghazi AND puts her out of play.

I question why she was there. Perhaps the VP thing is on the mark, because Christie really didn’t need her support. There was no question he would win the election.
