Christie rising, Obama falling (by Drudge Report Editor/Palin Hater Joe Curl...)
Washington Times ^ | 12/1/13 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 12/02/2013 8:50:07 AM PST by jimbo123

With America’s mainstream media taking the week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, the nation’s lonely and underworked pollsters stepped up to feed the beast.

-snip-

Those two findings, more than everything else above, may point to why 2016 is Mr. Christie’s year — as does this last poll. Just 18 percent of Americans say they are at their “ideal weight.” More than half “would like” to lose some weight; just 25 are “seriously trying” — the highest gap in 11 years. And 36 percent would classify themselves as “overweight.”

Good news for Mr. Christie, seriously overweight but “seriously trying” to lose poundage. Americans love a doer, hate a quitter. And the portly politician said this month he’s “a little more than halfway” toward his goal. He meant his weight loss, but he might just the same meant the Republican nomination in 2016.

Any way we can make Christie fall, too?
I don’t want a another Democrat for for president. That is what Christie is - a good Democrat (as opposed to evil ones that currently run the Democrat party...)

he’s “a little more than halfway” toward his goal.

Which means he'll still be obese. In this day of 24/7 TV news coverage, America will not elect an obese man for president.

I’m not voting for another NE Rino republican. I’ll stay home or waste my vote on a Libertarian.

Christie needs to stay in Jersey and destroy the thugs in the teachers unions there.

He has no business being in federal office. At any level.

So the Moonies hate Palin, too?

Chris Christie would be a liberal disaster for the GOP...and would ensure a President Hillary

Christie might be the 2016 version of Rudy Giuliani. He is a northeast moderate Republican with a New York-type, in-your-face temperament. Here’s the only real takeaway from the strength of Christie in the hypothetical match-ups with Hillary Clinton: Clinton can be beat. In fact, usually nothing changes until 2016, it is likely that the Republican nominee will do better than any particular named Republican as the nominee coalesces most of those who currently are backing another named Republican but not him in the polls. Having said this, of course things will change before we get to 2016.

That is an awesome pic.

I said last month they should put a Schrader valve in his @ss, fill him with helium, and join the parade.

Well done!

Pennsylvania.....a Republican hasn’t won the state in 25 years, but, next-door neighbor Mr. Christie would knock off Mrs. Clinton 48 percent to 44 percent, according to a Public Policy Polling survey.

Are you kidding me? That crap is starting already? Every year we're told that "this will be the year the GOP will take Pennsylvania", and we end up getting out butt handed to us on a platter. Until the Liberal bations,Philly and Pittsburgh, sink into the abyss, PA will go Democrat.

Christie’s rising? Be careful. What goes up must come down.

All races will unit in their rejection of a fat man.
Fat knows no color.

Christie wouldn’t “rise” if you pumped the Goodyear blimp’s reserve of helium into him.
