I do not understand the reason for Christie’s rabid support. He’s outspoken.... big deal. His positions revolving around personal freedom seem tepid at best to me.
Wait a minute, Romney makes Romney look liberal too!
Creeping Islamicization of America is one of our most pressing problems. If Christie fails here, it’s hard to accept him as the “best that NJ can do.”
Yeah...but isn't that essentially what a bunch of FReepers on here are trying to do with Mitt Romney?
Whatever good Christie has done taking on the municipal unions he is undoing with this disgusting love of jihad, jihadism and jihadists.
What good does it do us to control the power of the teacher’s unions if we transfer a bunch of that power to sharia courts?
Christie is a Useful Idiot for the muzzies who just happens to have done a few good things on the fiscal front for NJ.
CAIR care if it were the Gipper (Reagan) ANYONE who is sympathetic, appeases, defends or is otherwise apologetic/supporter of Islamists (as opposed to Muslims) will/would never get my support and is NO "Conservative."
The northeastern elite(Rockefeller wing) have control of the GOP, I hope it’s the GOP’s death knell because these people are not conservatives.
He’s not one of us and neither are those who keep trying to foist him on us. He’s over in Mayor Bloomberg territory on firearms, and that’s just one area he’s way off.
How about Derbyshire??
Finally someone puts the Christie coservative mystique into focus.
However, in all fairness, conservatism doesn't have a litmus test, other than "not liberal-leftist-socialist-communist-fascist-bigoted".
Unlike the left, which strictly limits its doctrines to "the agenda", and refuses to compromise, requires hate, greed, perversity and unfairness among its members, and admires its extremists and most unreasonable and repulsive members.
Thus conservatism has always been the 'big tent', embracing calm reason, earned success, prosperity, law and order, ethics, freedom and liberty.
Let him stay in NJ.
It only matters WHEN Christie himself or some eGOP try to promote him officially to the national level.
Chris Christie - NJ = Rick Snyder - MI.
“Christie Is Not One of Us”
He may not truly be “one of us”, but conservative/realists must face the fact that he’s probably “the closest we’re going to get”, considering where he’s coming from.
If I recall, Christie barely squeaked through with a majority in his election. New Jersey is what it is. And what it is, is a “true-blue” state of the left.
I’ll go so far as to predict that Chris Christie may indeed be the “most conservative” governor that New Jersey is going to see for years to come.
When he goes, it’s probably going to be Cory Booker....
I doubt that it matters who Romney picks. I suspect that Palin has turned him down, already.
Christie is a fine caddie for the country club Democrats.
I think he’s more like two or three of us.
For Jersey, he’s more than halfway to the right. For the country at large (and for lots of us stuck behind enemy lines in Jersey), he’s too far left.
