Skip to comments.Christie rejects blame for Romney's loss, looks forward — maybe to '16
Posted on 11/08/2012 11:54:25 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
"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.

I totally expect this. Mark your post because when it happens you can pull this out and say, “See, I told you.”
I voted for Romney. But if they think that Conservatives sat home for this election, wait and see how many sit home in 2016. I’ll be one of them.
I actually think that “16” is Route 16 to political oblivion.
As they say, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” and Christie laid down an 8 laner with his political photoOp with the God-King, Comrade Obama.
As Ray Charles would say, “Hit the road, Chris, and don’t come back no more, no more”. Ray had a lot of insight for a blind man.
Come ON people! This is what we all said about Romney 4 years ago! Don't you get it? Don't you see what Christie's group grope with Obama presiding over the Sandy "recovery" efforts was about? The cabal on the left did this as a trial run in case they can't get someone further to the left of obama in 2016. Christie is the left's backup plan and the media will be fawning over him right up until the 2016 primaries and he is the nominee.
Chris Chrisie? Never heard of him. He’s dead to me.
Sometimes, I pray to God that he take the life if my enemies. Chris Christie embodies everything wrong with the Republican establishment. Let’s tear it all down.
Even know where my Congresscritter has some property interests in trees ~ he might as well forget it.
LOL. good one!
Who exactly would we have put up there? I mean, republicans didn’t come out to vote....
“He needs to control his mouth (in more ways than one) and lose about 200 pounds. That fat slob cannot control himself.”
Very dangerous habit under Obamacare.
Everyone us sitting out the next two elections unless there are true conservatives to vote for.
If he’s the nominee, I leave the R party forever.
"I'll stop any Republican in 2016,
just like I did this year for you.
I'll even run with Colin Powell as my VP.
Just give me more food already."
Don't worry about 2016 !
Aside from outing yourself as a spineless transparent worm, that 200 extra pounds of ballast make it real likely you won't live that long.
Amen to that. Never again, no more okiedoke. I actually don’t intend to bother anyway, bit his being the candidate will assure it.
We’re becoming a one-party nation.
Christie lost any respect I had for him. He’s done in my book.
I guess they figure if they could get us to go for Romney even after McCain, they’ve got us locked up. The last laugh’s on them, because I’m not voting for any of the stinking rotters ever again.
Any of you really think Obama will leave power in 2016? Stalinists never leave . Yeah Saddam Hussein, Chavez in Venezuela have elections but they always win as this stalinist Obama just won.
Christie has a better chance of dying of a heart attack by 2016 than having a shot in hell for the nomination.
He may very well get the “nomination” in the same way that Romney did.
But, I WILL NOT vote for him as I did for Romney.
I have wished for YEARS that some external ‘force’ or entity would hook a giant tow chain into Cape Cod, and haul the whole mess north of I-64 and east of I-81 out into the North Atlantic, where it could drift aimlessly while the rest of the country recovers. A six-month warning for conservatives to evacuate would only be fair, of course.
I hope we mean it this time. We, including myself, buckled on Romney. No more. I can assure myself of that by not voting at all anymore, and that’s my intention. Next week I go to unregister.
I think there’s an excellent chance he’d make it through the primaries, considering how they’re set up and who gets the GOP backing.
My comment was that they are offering the very same reason that for a Christie run 2016 that we were fed about Mitt. Mitt was from a blue state and made his governorship about Democrat causes. It would be redundant to try and put Christie in the white house, the strategy does not work.
Hammer on nail. He would win the primary and lose the general, and the GOP will never learn, but I have.
Is there a DAY that this loudmouth doesn’t go looking for a camera to grace us with his opinion? Even one SINGLE day?
My governor (Bob McDonnell) keeps his head down and does his job, and he doesn’t even have the aftermath of a disaster to deal with. We hardly even know he’s there, most of the time. I wish Christie would take a lesson, and just SHUT UP.
Christie has become a processed twinkie in the outhouse of life..
and he splashed Coulter on his way down...
Exactly. I can’t believe they’re starting this crud again this fast. Boy they really do have contempt for the base but can’t say we didn’t bring it on ourselves. They must be laughing up their sleeves at hearing the broken record.
“2016? Really Chris?
NEWSFLASH: Not if we have anything to do with it.”
Oh come on. If that is who the GOP runs then everyone here will be crying we have no choice. We have to support him.
And then if he looses then everyone here will be shouting that anyone who did not vote for him is responsible for him loosing.
I have seen it right here. Time and time again. It never changes.
If not him it will be someone like him, the Repubs are already talking up the need to hispander harder.
I unregister next week.
Cory Booker, mayor of Newark, is considering a run for governor.
I will vote for Booker.
...and he’ll be the second democrat for whom I’ve ever voted.
I hope that fat punk rots in Jersey..
Screw You (to the author of the article). McCain-scratch, Romney-scratch, Fool me Three times..
Not in a million years!
Don’t you see what Christie’s group grope with Obama presiding over the Sandy “recovery” efforts was about? The cabal on the left did this as a trial run in case they can’t get someone further to the left of obama in 2016. Christie is the left’s backup plan and the media will be fawning over him right up until the 2016 primaries and he is the nominee.
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 when
people needed you, so you can’t manage the US......
They got their photo op, and left him holding the blame bag.
I can’t find the punchline...
I can’t find the punchline...
I hope we mean it this time. We, including myself, buckled on Romney. No more. I can assure myself of that by not voting at all anymore, and thats my intention. Next week I go to unregister.
I mean it.
I caved this time because I felt it was our last and only chance. I still believe it was our last and only chance, so why bother with a RINO in 2016?
Republican party is dead, and America has already fallen off the cliff. They just don’t know it yet, until the impact anyway.
I never understood why so many people thought Christie was a Conservative..yeah he goes after the Union thugs and yells at them..tell me who other than leftist turds actually love the unions..I hate the unions too maybe I should run for President. Christie showed exactly what he was all about at the RNC Convention..a Convention which was about promoting Romney and going after Obama, and what did Christie do..he mentioned only HIMSELF..hardly mentioned Obama’s name at all and only waited til the end to mention Romney..Christie is ALL about himself..Christie isnt hard to please, just have Springsteen give him a shout out and he is happy as a clam. Isn’t that sad, that all it took to make Christie happy was to have his “Hero” Springsteen say what a great Gov Christie is..
But I have a question for NY and NJ..where is your dollar..where is your Stafford Act..because so far I haven’t seen things getting better in NY or NJ..maybe Obama doesn’t care about you after all
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 could see him being nominated.
He’ll lose just like McCain and Romney. I won’t vote for him as I didn’t Romney. but republican primary voters and establishment could convince themselves he’s “electable”. LOL
Such a laugh...”electable” should mean has a fighting shot to win even under harsh conditions. Not what they mean. Which basically comes down to “Liberal Republican with no principles that can even blow en election against Carteresque conditions”.
On the bright side this kinds of kills once and for all that Reagan won just because he gave a good debate and Carter was inept. Now they are trying to say it’s demographics. No, losers, it’s because your candidates stink.
“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”.
You all said the same thing about Romney in 2008-9-10-11....And what did people do? Made him the nominee. When I see all this negative stuff going towards Christie on here, I fear that Christie just might be our nominee in 2012....the same scenario is playing out. This is Romney part 2 happening right before our eyes.....Wake up people. No more losers...you had your loser Romney.....Can we PLEASE have conservative Santorum in 2016? I can see it now....the Christie cheerleaders will happen around February 2016...Ugh!!!!!! Oh and those of us who find Christie a liberal will be blasted for saying such things and FREEPERS will be saying how wonderful Christie is....Good Lord.
Look at Clinton. 12 years later and he is still around. “Good, God, Almighty!”
“Oh and those of us who find Christie a liberal”
I don’t know if he’s a liberal or not, since I never paid much attention to the guy before the convention, but I do consider him a TRAITOR for providing Obama with the photo-ops that gave him an edge the weekend before the election.
That makes him more reprehensible than anyone who is simply a RINO could ever be.
Some RINOs are more likable than other RINOs and Christie isn't even likable!
He was a novelty at first for arguing with teacher unions, but that got old a long time ago!
He is just a disgustingly fat jerk.
Who are you calling “WE “ Mother Lover?
You aint one of us. “We” don’t have two faces.
Whie you are all hopped up on attracting illegals, queers, abortion loving women , young college marxists, and buying black votes you are losing Ours.
The Republican party will never nominate a RINO Goomba from New Jersey.
