Chris Christie: New Jersey to be ‘Romney country’

“going to be Mitt Romney Country,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie believes his state will support Mitt Romney’s bid for president as much as he does.

Standing alongside the Republican presidential candidate, Christie told donors at a $50,000-a-plate fundraising dinner on Tuesday night in Woodbridge, N.J., that the state is “going to be Mitt Romney Country,” according to the Boston Herald.

Christie reminded the audience that few politicians endorsed Romney earlier than he did, in October.

“There were many at the time who were still standing on the sidelines, sitting on the fence, waiting for something to hit them, yeah, and I did on behalf of Governor Romney, that’s right,” he said.

Romney called Christie, a potential running mate, “an extraordinary leader.”

“I was really hoping someone would heckle him so I could watch him go to town here, but you know better, don’t you?”

If the GOP wanted to win, they probably could do very nicely with a Gary Johnson / Ron Paul ticket.

Yeah, they'd get a rock solid 17%.

Sober up and call your drug counselor in the morning.

And how much would Romney get without the "Anybody But Obama" mentality?

Question: why would this combo get less than the differrence?
Answer: The "Anybody But Obama" do not really mean what they say.

“A Romney-Christie ticket fits the stereotypes of Northeasterners south of the Potomac ans west of the Alleghenies”

I was thinking much the same thing. I like Christie a whole bunch as NJ’s Governor, but I think he’d be a bad choice as VP for exactly the reasons you’ve stated.

If New Jersey goes Republican this November, so will Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, and even California. In other words, it will not happen. My wishing it won’t help.

I agree about NJ as i have been here my entire life. They will be busing in anyone they can to vote for BigO. Something like 110% voting in Neward, Camden, Jersey City. NJ stays somewhat under the radar in a lot of circumstances. Pa. or NY usually gets blamed. NJ is the most corrupt state in the Union. They just do it quietly unlike Chicago(Il.) Look at Melendez, Lautenberg & Torricelli. Then add Corzine and you have a politically worthless state. IMHO

So, he’s predicting that a leftist will win the race for ‘12 POTUS.

“If Joe Biden can be VP, then who the hell can’t?”

You can’t be serious. Have you looked at the letter behind Biden’s name? It’s a capital D.

Anyone with a capital D gets a pass from the media - a complete pass. Even a doofus like Biden.

The selection of Ru Paul as the VP candidate will make the selection of Palin look like a small news story.

Then why don't we run our candidates with a capitol D behind their name?

And here I thought that "no publicity was bad publicity." ;)
But seriously, how in God's name is the GOP going to signal wanting to do things differently if it keeps selecting the same crap?
"You hate Obama, ok... we'll give you someone that's mostly like Obama." instead of "Ok, here's someone that's radically different than Obama."?

I heard someone in process-control say: "your process is perfectly designed to give you the results you are getting."
The GOP has shown a remarkable disdain for its base, and therefore I refuse to throw in with them if they are going to keep offering up the same old sorts.
They can no longer count on my vote, they have to earn it; and how they do that is by actually striving for their party planks.
(Overturn Roe v. Wade, Overturn NFA/GCA*, Responsible spending, Accountable governance, Limited government, Free-market/deregulation, Etc.)

It won’t be her(or any other woman). I think they’ve already said she’s not being vetted and she said she’s not interested. But the main reason is that Romney and his people want to get as far away as possible from any connection to Palin. they want their VP pick to be the anti-Palin pick.

If Romney picks Martinez, or any other woman for that matter, the media will just talk about Palin non-stop and compare the two of them non-stop...and Romney and his people don’t want that.

They want someone who won’t make waves, and will keep the focus on Romney and the economy. Portman, Pawlenty, McDonnell, Thune, someone like that.

If Christie can stop the fraud, he can put NJ in Romney’s column.
