Christie Says He's Thinking About 2016 Bid
Trentonian ^ | 5/14/2014

Posted on 05/15/2014 3:55:20 PM PDT by nickcarraway

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday that he is thinking about running for president and that by the time 2016 arrives the controversy over last year’s George Washington Bridge lane closures “will be a footnote.”

Christie told a conference in Washington that after months of investigation “there hasn’t been one suggestion that I knew anything about” orders from staff aides to close access lanes that caused traffic snarls in Fort Lee.

When asked by CBS’ Bob Schieffer if he’s thinking of running for president and when he’ll make a decision, Christie said: “Yes, and later.”

Will his campaign song be “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”?

It won’t be a footnote in my mind. As far as I’m concerned he has the same mentality as Obama AND he’s a RINO. As a Southerner, I would never vote for someone so loudmouthed, rude and obnoxious.

I can’t get the hypothetical image out of my mind of Chris Farley playing the part of Christie.

It’s ok for him to think it.

He’d deserve a punch in the nose if he tries to act on it though...

Today I stopped on Texas State Road 71 in Bee Cave to buy a newspaper. Next to the Hill Country Convenience Store was a sub shop called Jerseys with a sign advertising a Gigantic Jersey Sub. I couldn’t help myself. I stuck my head into the shop and asked them how much their Chris Christie sub cost. They told me $6.99. I told them that was too much for a Fatboy from New Jersey.

I then walked into the convenience store where there were selling Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Even here in Texas I cannot rid myself of reminders of the Jersey J@ck@$$!!!

"I honestly love you"

Maybe I hang around here
A little more than I should
We both know I got somewhere else to go
But I got something to tell you
That I never thought I would
But I believe you really ought to know

I love you
I honestly love you

You don't have to answer
I see it in your eyes
Maybe it was better left unsaid
This is pure and simple
And you should realize
That it's coming from my heart and not my head

I love you
I honestly love you

I'm not trying to make you feel uncomfortable
I'm not trying to make you anything at all
But this feeling doesn't come along everyday
And you shouldn't blow the chance
When you've got the chance to say

I love you
I honestly love you

If we both were born
In anoother place and time
This moment might be ending in a kiss
But there you are with yours
And here I am with mine
So I guess we'll just be leaving it at this

I love you
I honestly love you
I honestly love you

As a side note to Christie thinking about running, please consider the following.

The Republican RINO Party platform needs to be amended to demand that RINO presidential candidates commit to making sure that the federal government respects Congress's constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers if elected.
