The GOP-e is working furiously to engineer a Christie nomination. Should they succeed, you can get ready for President Hillary.

They got me to vote for Romney to prevent an Obama second term, this time it doesn’t matter and I don’t care. I will not vote for Christie and no amount of scare tactics will get me to vote for him. You think a bunch of Republicans stayed home and didn’t vote for Romney? Just wait and see what happens if Christie is set up by the establishment.

I have spent the last couple years preparing for a collapse. That said I say if Christie is the nominee I will not vote. If it takes a collapse to get the GOPe to realize that the base will not support dems that they put up so be it. I don’t care how much lipstick they put on that pig Christie I will not vote for him.

Especially since I suspect (and hope) that Scott Walker will be the strong majority GOP nominee come 2016.

And they will use any false means necessary to give a more moderate nominee momentum, as they did with Romney. If Romney lost Iowa, he would not have had momentum going into New Hampshire, and he would have been severely weakened. So they falsely declared Romney the winner when Santorum actually won it.

It was to be Romney and Romney it was to be. And all stops will be pulled in 2016 for whomever the establishment wants. We need to beat these people back!

Well what else is there to say but to run out and celebrate with a box of gooey Christy Creme Donuts. All calories and no substance fits perfectly with the GOP-e as they try to ‘glaze’ over us. Not very sweet is it however?

Are you sure just 3 times. I think he is pushing 400 at least. That is more like 4 times odumby.

They don't care, as they'd prefer Hillary to any conservative.

Walker/Cruz or Cruz/Walker. I never sat out an election, but I just might if one of those two are not on the ballot.

Question:
If the 2016 Republican Presidential Caucus were held today,
who would you most likely support:
Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio,
Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, or Scott Walker?

Christie - 17%
Cruz - 16%
Jindal - 3%
Paul - 13%
Rubio - 6%
Ryan - 9%
Santorum - 11%
Walker - 7%
Not Sure - 17%
-
HA!
Christie is in a dead heat with this guy:

I think the Roves and the Priebuses have already run the calculus figures and they're confident that they have just enough rubes who either

You'll see the threats trying to scare the squishies. Watch for the posts here on FreeRepublic shortly after Krispy Kreme's the nominee, saying things like "Hillary thanks you for your vote".

The other textbook trick that the GOP-e always deploys is, "Republican X can't win. He's too Conservative." And then they gin up a bunch of match-up polls showing the Conservative losing badly to the Democrat and the GOP-e guy losing, but very competitive, with a chance, if everybody only gets behind the GOP-e candidate.

Watch to see just when Rove and Co. will deploy this tactic. It will come.

He will never get the stench of the gang of 8 off. He will probably regret ever stepping in that one.

Cruz virtually tied for the lead, in spite of the Christie cheerleading that inundates the airwaves. This is good news.

Once again the MSM is attempting to choose the RINO party’s candidate. Once chosen they will jump down his throat and accuse him of every crime committed in the state of NJ. I ain’t going down this road again. If this guy is selected as the RINO candidate, I will not vote on the president side of the ticket. Him or Hillary, dudden matter we get another commie socialist. I’m done voting “simply to keep some dimocrat out of office.” Those days are OVER!

Iowa is so out of the mainstream that:
  1. They voted for Dukakis in 1988 when Bush I was elected in a 40 state landslide.
  2. They got gay marriage before Illinois.

Screw Iowa and the horse they rode in on. At one time, they were a worthwhile bellweather. They have ceased to be relevant.

These polls are ridiculous:

PPP has Christie beating Clinton by 4 in PA, Harper has Christie beating Clinton by 5 in Iowa and within 1 in Ohio in a Quinnipiac poll.

Thats around 15-20% higher than Cruz and 10-15% ahead of Bush, Ryan and Paul. Theres just no way thats possible even with the recent hoopla.

“...If they insist on giving me democRATs to vote for ...”

Same here, friend.

My litmus test is this:

“Do you support, without hesitation, without reserve, my Constitutional, Civil, and HUMAN right as an American to carry the firearm of my choice for the defense of my life and my family?”

Period.

If the answer isn’t an unmitigated and immediate yes, with a decent voting record to back it up, they don’t get my vote.

Christie doesn’t fit that bill.

Voting for a RINO gun grabber is no different than voting for a piece of sh*t democrat.

And I just won’t.

To me, if a Public Servant doesn’t understand who it works for, and that we’re only HIRING it for a temporary time, they’re dangerous.

That’s what we already have.
