Miami Herald ^ | 1/9/14 | Associated Press

House Speaker John Boehner says he believes Chris Christie remains a serious contender for the Republican 2016 presidential nomination, despite the traffic jam scandal engulfing the New Jersey governor.

Reporters asked Boehner about Christie's problems on Thursday, even as the governor was holding a news conference in Trenton, N.J.

In your dreams, Baby Boehner. Christie’s criminality makes him a NON-contender and may be an answer to Tea Party prayers.

Typical of Boehner - one RINO trying to protect another.

Why can’t they get rid of Boehner as Speaker? Christie being vindictive, at the very least having an environment in which vindictive creeps set the tone IS prohibitive.

In that case then, look for four more years of Democrats. Assuming that there is an election in 2016, which I have yet to be convinced.

Notice how the RATS didn’t throw Christie under the bus until the day AFTER he signed the NJ Amnesty bill? A lesson for Boehner and his Amnesty dreams...

Let’s nominate ANOTHER squishy moderate Republican. After the success of McCain and Romney, what could possibly go wrong?

No, Boehner, he doesn't. Time to get to work making Jeb your GOPe poster boy.

Crispy is such a contender he came in 31 out of 32 right in front of Jeb Bush at CPAC last year.

I have not heard one person I know even mention him as a choice for 2016. He has no chance in the South. I personally dislike the guy’s personality as well as disagree with his political positions. I don’t think he’s qualified to be President. I would not vote for him any more than I would vote for Hillary. I’m not shocked to find out he is so petty he blocked traffic to get back at someone. Not even suprised.

Pelosi and Boehner... that’s the best these “two parties” can come up with? Two mental defectives? Reid, McCain? Ha. The Uniparty must go.

Crush them. More Uniparty tears!

It possibly may be good if Christie runs for Pres if Jeb Bush runs too so that they split RINO votes in the primaries.

Rand Paul will probably be the Republican nominee...

Why would anyone vote for a former governor of New Jersey? Here are a few recent examples:
1. Jon Corzine: a securities manipulator who makes Bernie Madoff blush.
2. Jim McGreevy: famous for hiring his gay lover from Israel as his liaison to the Department of Homeland Security and chief of the New Jersey equivalent.
3. Chris Christy: an arrogant, nasty, morbidly obese individual who makes Tony Soprano blush.

Hopefully it will be someone like Ted Cruz who can get my vote, since I am an independent conservative.

If Christie ran for the presidency I'd vote for him.

As far as Boehner goes, well it would be nice if he'd just do his job.

I’m thinking that shipped sailed.

This is a big country.I’m hoping that we can have a nominee that doesn’t have the last name of Paul, McCain, Rand, Bush, Romney....

Cruz/Gowdy is looking like a strong ticket. And, being actual conservatives, they will work to make the downticket conservatives an exciting straight-Repub punch.

But it turns out the vote fraud possibilites are endless, since Colorado has shown that clerks can query the database of votes cast at will. They were looking at early votes cast to determine how many votes they needed to get the fix in.

Voting machine databases are supposed to be LOCKED, but turns out that ain't so. Box of Stashed Ballots Could Invalidate Contested Broomfield Election [vote fraud Colorado ]

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3109672/posts ..Records also indicate that Susek or a city employee repeatedly logged into the ballot accounting database as the administrator and downloaded vote tallies repeatedly for two weeks before the Nov. 5 election.

Access to early voting records give the RATS data to fraud with.

Assuming these machines with open access to determine trends, this is catastrophic. The FEC needs to answer just how many vote machine databases are accessible for user-driven calculations.

This access is probably how Zero knew how many to bus in to enact THE FIX.
