Yep. I’ve been posting for a year that Romney will be the nominee and Obamarx will be easily re-elected. And that will be an abject disaster.
Boo hoo. I like his straightforwardness, but a RINO is a RINO.
Oh no, not again!
Exactly...that sewer will take several terms to clean up.
I don’t understand why anyone would want to run like this. The media clamors for you to run...they say you’re the savior...run run run..then, when you announce, they do everything they can to destroy you. It’s a game for the media and I think Christie is too smart to fall for it.
He knows it is not his time.
I am very enthusiastic about the future of our party...I heard Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker speak this weekend and her was fantastic. Walker, Rubio, Christie, Nikki Haley, Suzanna Martinez. All rising stars. Check out the Governor or Puerto Rico. Heard him speak as well. INCREDIBLE. He has completely turned Puerto Rico around utilizing conservative principles..he got rid of the capital gains tax on homes and new home buying went up 88%!!! He cut the State’s payroll by 50%...Our Republican Governors are turning things around.
Then say hello to the 2012 GOP nominee for president:
Willard Mitt Romney
Yes. The drumbeat will be thick for Mitt now.
I’m willing to rely on strong arms in congress to hold the line on immigration and abortion and gun control and health care, however when there is spending weakness in the White House (ala Bush Jr.) there will be spending weakness in Congress. Spending is an existential threat to the nation.
Giving up so soon?
Agree. I love Sarah but she has no chance to win. Zero.
Romney, who failed in the economy in Mass
as its wandering governor, will also negate the economy
Romney also eliminates the corruption issue.
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Whatever the Governor’s decision is... I will wait until I hear it from him personally rather than listen to anything any network station would have to say.
Ann Coulter is starting a hunger strike.
I can't get over it. Christie's not running!
Why is the headline in the present tense? He made that decision long ago.
I gave up a year ago when I said Romney would be the nominee. Nobody in this field will win against him. The GOP is known for a) being the stupid party and b) nominating the guy whose “turn” it is and c) see “a” again.
The odds on Romney winning just jumped to 60% on Intrade
The odds of Cain winning ... 5%
that tells you everything you need to know, we are screwed.
The perfect is the enemy of the good.
Agree word needs to get out. Please repost any of my points if you have to.
The main one being that it disarms the Republicans main weapon against Obama and that is Obama Care. No way Romney can win on this issue (which is right up there with the economy) when Obama Care is modeled after Romney Care. All Obama has to do is say it and it disarms Romney completely.
The leftist in the media and press know this. That is why they want Romney. They want another 4 years of Obama.
he’s been saying that all along.
