The MSM is pushing him as the GOP nominee, and undercutting him at the same time.

It’s what they always do.

Just a foreshadowing of the McCain treatment Christie will get by his “fans” in the media if by some odd chance, he should be the GOP nominee.

Christie has no coattails. Picked up only one Republican seat in the NJ legislature. Legislature remains heavily Democrat. End of Story!!! Meanwhile, in Virginia, the legislature remains heavily Republican. MacAuliffe with his squeese by victory is going nowhere fast!!!

I like how they “balance” things with the rock-ribbed Joe Scarborough representing the conservative side of things. I guess Meghan McCain was unavailable.

Christie Crème is the one the GOPe, DNC, and liberal media have selected to be the nominee.

It sickens me. I had assumed, for his name was bandied about, that he is too unappealing to be considered seriously. But now he appears to the forgone conclusion! Well, I will not vote for him.

Unless we want this fat, traitorous so-&-so to be nominated, we need to settle on a candidate and start building a campaign and ground game extremely soon. My choice is Cruz.

If he was skinny, would we see that cover?

The juvenile j-school grads running that brochure these days are snickering because they know they can hide behind the same excuse you cited.

But it's a fat joke, and fat jokes don't happen to Democrats on any magazine cover.

They want Christie to be the nominee, but they're so giddy with the hope of slamming him with fat jokes they might not be able to stifle themselves long enough for him to get the nomination.

With McCain, they kept the "he's crazy" story under wraps until the nomination was sealed.

Zactly. The MSM will build him up to knock any other candidate out and after the primaries rip him to shreds so Hillary can be coronated.

The Vegans hate Christie’s gut. They hate him viscerally, like carnivores. They would like to tear his flesh from his bones and feed it to hyenas. Vegans are vicious.

The MSM want him to be the nominee and then they will nudge him out just like Romney. It is such a obvious game plan. The support RINOs just enough to ensure they are the nominees. As long as RINOs run the MSM and RATS can avoid real disaster. Then they throw the RINOs overboard in the general election. Even if a few happen DEMO-Lites happen to win, no problem. Same policies, just more slowly implemented.

Exactly. It’s plausible deniability.

Your second point is exactly right on as well. They’d never say something like, “Rule of the Jack-Ass” after a Democrat victory.

Besides his wretched record in terms of conservatism, the four incidents that most define Christie for me... his self-centered “me, me, me” speech at the convention, his embarrassingly slobbering embrace of Obama after the storm, his ugly ranting at the GOP in Congress for more moolah, and the story of him breaking down in tears over a phone-call from Bruce Springsteen (my God, how pathetic).

The media seems to act as if Christie is some testosterone-fueled, political he-man. And he probably does seem that way to those northeastern media libs. But of course that’s because they are a bunch of faggots, who can’t tell the difference between self-absorbed, drama-queen antics and the real deal.

Chris Christie will never get my vote.

Time Mag can only muster insincere faint praise of Christie by the dual-meaning 'Elephant' reference.

Proof positive that the libs REALLY want CC to be the gOp nominee so that they can trash him.


CC: Tell me the truth. You don't call me an elephant behind my back, do you?
BO: uh ... um .... let me get back to you on that dumbo ... I mean Chrissie.

For the MSM media types, Christie represents the enemy of their enemy (T.E.A. Party Conservatives) and will be their darling Republican poster boy right up until election time, then they will declare he’s never paid taxes and is responsible for a multitude of deaths.

“How Chris Christie can win over the GOP”

“Ain’t. Gonna. Happen.

EVER.”...

I am not a Republican..I am an Independent..However, until further notice, I do not like Christie for a different reason and that is the coldness I thought he showed toward his wife on that stage Tuesday night. It was too obvious to miss. I would guess he would be hard to live with.

The only piece of somewhat good news to come out of this election cycle. Hopefully that will mean gun grabs and phony energy boondoggles will be DOA in VA over the next few years. Stay vigilant!
