Christie rejects blame for Romney's loss, looks forward maybe to '16
2012 New Jersey On-Line LLC ^ | November 08, 2012 at 11:57 AM | By Jenna Portnoy

"As a party, we have to look forward to what our challenges are in the future," Christie said. "This election is over. So we have to look forward to the next challenges."

As the party figures out how to attract Hispanics, women and young people, Republicans may look toward Christie as a frontrunner for the 2016 nomination. He leads a blue and diverse state, walks the walk on bipartisanship and could steer the party away from the far right.

Yeah, while I don’t live in NJ, I’ve heard that news as well. If Booker runs, Christie’s toast. I think I’d actually send Booker some help just to make sure that Christie isn’t able to parlay a second win into a 2016 run.

These numbers and results just do not add up, from what we saw, the lines, the get out the vote, the wanting to get rid of obama, to how milkitary ballots went eenly in VA which is utter crap.

Nah it;s not the inclusive line which will work , it is the stoping of election fraud and when they had 4 years of prepping for this and how the Chicago machine works then yes I will say it,.
This election results don;t add up.

As for Christie and him helping obama, well he can piss off and to anyone who still think Christie did a good job then understand een the Dems and th emedia have admitted that the booast for obama by Christie helped them.

Christie knew damn well what he was doing and he can piss off.

He pissed on us and the country for his own desire to run

If he tries to run they will resurrect Sandy, and the poor post hurricane handling we are seeing on TV. Line will be: Obama cleared the way for you, but you couldn’t manage....

Yep. It's already turning to crap down there and Christie's comments about what an excellent job Obama did are leaving him holding the bag. It may not even take until 2016. I can easily see this coming back to haunt him when he runs for re-election next year.

I sure hope he doesn’t get foisted upon us by the early primary states. Surely we can do better.

You actually bring up a very good point in a round about way. Why participate in Iowa and NH primaries and let them have so much influence on the nominating process? Republicans let states that vote Dem pick their nominee. The Stupid Party strikes again.

Someone in the GOP leadership is likely to decide that 2016 is "Christie's turn". He follows in a great line of Romney, McCain, Dole, and so many other vaguely moderate elder statesmen who deserved a turn. I don't care how terrible the democrat is in 2016, if we even have a real election then, Christie will not get my vote in the primary or in the general. America needs a genuine conservative who can articulate why conservative values, conservative government, and conservative policies will make life better for voters - not someone whose claim to fame is simply not being the democrat.

It is no longer enough to be pro-freedom. Too many voters look at the free stuff that the Dems are promising and don't see the cost. We need a candidate who can articulate why conservative promotes freedom and how that leads to a better life for individual voters in the short term.

We also need party discipline. The Dems nationalized the election. They made it about Akin's stupid abortion comment, about a couple other abortion comments, and about our "lady parts", which is so stupid and irrelevant to the presidency that few sensible people took them seriously. Unfortunately, their focus groups were effective. Their social media monitoring was excellent, and they saw that the net effect of their little memes was to turn off voters and suppress the turnout, but to suppress our turnout more than theirs. They were right, and they barely squeaked out a "victory" based on (1) massive fraud, (2) divisive campaigning, and (3) narrowly targeted and absurd but emotionally effective attacks. We need someone who can respond in 2012, and it's not Christie.

Has it occurred to you, as it has to me; that I really loathe REPUBLICANS, damned near as much as I loathe Democrats. Time for them to go the way of the Whigs. We are NEVER going to get a Republican conservative candidate. They are playing us for suckers, just as the Democrats are playing the blacks. They’ll never see another cent from me, and next week, I’m changing to Independent, (and resigning my county committee seat.)

I think conservatives are not going to nominate a RINO again.

“They’re electable” is not going to cut it

I think they are. With a couple of exceptions, they've nominated a RINO in every presidential election year since 1928.

American presidential politics are blood sport. It is bare knuckled war. Christie knew that and he also knew the internal Romney polling numbers and yet he still helped Obama.

Makes me laugh. Christie is toast. He will never go anywhere in politics. The Dems won’t cuddle up to him and the Republicans are done with him. Simply put, Chris Christie has a very bad case of political herpes. And there is no cure.

Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Fearless prediction:
The NEXT Republican candidate will probably be the left of Romney.

Got to entice the Latinos, Asians, and “ladyparts voters” to our side, right?

(BTW: I claim credit for the new term, “ladyparts voter”, which we can expect to see used much in the future...)

“Every single time a conservative tries to cosy up to liberals, they end up taking it in the keister.”

Something like, “If you lie down with dogs, you’re gonna get fleas.” Christie is a fleabag compliments of love-’im-and-leave-’im Barack Hussein Obama mmmm mmmm mmmm

“Republicans in NJ are going to be crawling over broken glass to vote for the Mob Democrat, just so they can make this guy go away.”

I’ll guess that Christie will face Newark mayor Corey Booker in the next NJ governor contest.

If that’s the case, he’ll probably lose.

Agreed. Christie is toast and he knows it. IMO the whole Obama photo op stunt was more about Christie’s own re-election than anything else. I hope the GOP does primary him and we get a shot to take him out before Cory Booker and the unions do.

There is no way Christie Kreme gets the GOP presidential nod in 2016. Not in a million years will the conservatives accept that gun grabbing, muslim loving RINO. He will likely keel over from a massive heart attack before 2016 anyway. His goal should be eating more salad and trying to stay alive.

Sorry to see that people have STILL not learned from the past 25 years.

If the RNC chooses Christie, (and they choose the Candidate, not the voters) 99.9% of you will end up voting for him with yard signs just like that Creep Romney. Never fails.

The resources to figure out that you are the “Black Vote” for the RNC is not available to most people here. Spend the next four years with big talk, and you will line up and support what ever garbage the RNC dishes up. Never fails, Never will Fail...

That is not my fault, it is yours.
