New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told an Ocean City, Md., town hall Thursday that he was considering running for president in 2016.

“I’m thinking about it,” Christie said in response to a question from a local supporter, according to The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J.

Christie didn’t throw the tea overboard.
He threw the TEA Party overboard.

Christie should keep his day job of blocking traffic and investing in white elephant casinos.

All the “thinking” in the world cannot wash all of the New Jersey off of Christie. Forget about it.

Did he not get the memo?

Other liberals in the NY-NJ region have already attacked him on this Bridgegate deal, that was supposed to have demolished him forever.

Or is this a set-up to promote Jeb Bush?

The media in general has been pushing the worst possible Republican candidate every other day. For example, every few days there is some story about Mitt Romney making another try.

Are they trying to guarantee that a Democrat will win the White House in 2016? And who is putting the media up to this? The George Sorts gang? Or maybe the liberal elites in the Republican Party?

Ditto. Satan himself may be on the democratic ticket and I would not vote for Christie.

Christie “thinking” about running in 2016 is like Christie saying that he is “thinking” about whether he will eat the next cupcake to be placed before him. In both instances, the odds approach certainty, meaning that Christie will run and that the next cupcake placed before him is going down the hatch.

Don’t do it. Hillary will get the nom if she wants it, and if not her, then it’s Cuomo or someone else.

What’s that? You say Christie would seek the REPUBLICAN nomination? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAAAAA

Guess it's smart of him not to be seen in Atlantic City for a while.

Hey Chris, forget it, you won’t get my vote.

In these increasingly dangerous times, the 2nd Amendment is becoming even more indispensable, but you seem to disagree with that opinion.

The headline assumes Christie even HAS the ability to think.

Lard ass chumming with the Kenyan just before the 2012 election forever means he’ll never get my vote, even if it’s him vs. Hitlery.

Sure, you’re all a bunch of tough guys, knocking NJ and badmouthing Christie.

You’re going to bend over and accept Romney again and you know it.

Oh, thank God! I was worried for a second that the super-liberal anti-second-amendment ‘progressive’ Republican extremists would not be represented in 2016!
