He will never see my vote.

That's the problem Andrei and Verga. I would say the same thing. But in 2016, if the GOPe nominates him (and, yes, they do the nominating) to run against, say, Reverend Wright or a Muslim, what are you going to do? It's similar to voting for the insane idiot, McCain, or for Romney.

There’s the problem. The public “realizes” only through our media.

Um they already nominated a Jerimiah Wright/ mooselimb and he got in in spite of my best effort.

Fornicate them.

Coulter is NOT a conservative’s friend ... She follows the RINOs around like a puppy. She's an inside the beltway Republican(D).

I've been watching Ann, waiting for her to issue a full apology for her gushing infatuation with Christie.

So far, she has made some baby steps in that direction - but not enough for me to consider buying her new book.

Ann's problem is that she fell for Christie's "tough-talking" schtick. And that's all it is, schtick.

Those of us in NJ who know Christie's political origins have not been surprised -- we knew he had feet of clay long ago.

>>As much as I hate what he did...., this will probably all be forgotten soon enough 4 years from now.<<

Are you kidding? CHRIS CHRISTIE will be largely forgotten in 4 years.

He was the “flavor-of-the-day,” whose claim to fame was being a sassy loudmouth.

Now his mouth has done him irreparable damage.

I for one am tired of holding my nose and voting for the party. This was the last time for me. I’ll vote the state candidates, but a RINO president, never again.

Don’t you think the uninformed Republican primary voters would just as soon turn to Jebbie in 2016? He does have the required familiar name.

Well another hard lesson learned..... which is.......

It’s not wise to turn these men into some kind of rock star (put them on a pedastal). All men have feet of clay. All are prone to mistakes and weaknesses.

Avoid making rock stars out of these people and that will save much grief in the future. :-/

Totally agree verga... THIS was the important election. What is going to be done in the next 4 years is going to be more than heartbreaking. 2 Supreme Court justices??? And it will be nearly impossible to undo the harm done.

The Bush name was so toxic that it played a major role in re-electing Zero last week. Do you really think it will be rehabilitated in another four years?

To be clear, I never vote against a RINO once nominated. Christie will not get my vote. The democrats will have NJ. Christie screwed NJ and the entire USA. I hate him now.

Fiscal Conservatives are neither....

Whenever I hear someone labeled as a “Fiscal Conservative”....I know they are not conservative

Christie needs to be primaried out. He is pro-Islamic Terrorist, Pro-Big Government, and a Democrat in a Fat Suit

If the media wants to pick him as the GOP patsy in 2016, it will happen. And there will be hand-wringing about “having to vote for him.” But its all a charade. National elections have become farcical aquatic ceremonies as the means of selecting our leaders.

Count me out.

Can we FINALLY be done with that arrogant assclown Ann Coulter? She relentlessly pimped for both Crispy Creme and Mittens, and that very combo led us to a RINO implosion that may destroy the GOP. Why do Conservatives keep buying her books - which tell us what we already think - and make rich a relentless advocate for gay rights, RINOs and Sharia apologists like Christie? ENOUGH WITH COULTER. Boycott the bitch!

“The image of him embracing Obama with a big stupid grin on his face”

The image I recall is him looking at Hussein with what we used to call “goo goo eyes”. It was looooove.

When I saw him and the Messiah on TV doing their ‘pre-victory” tour, I was so focused on Christie’s white shoes that I didn’t think to look to see if he was also wearing his kneepads.

Well, that's my point. And when they get the next one nominated, and the GOPE nominates Christie, you'll campaign and vote for him, as will I. As we did with Romney, who is repugnant to me. But I've quit saying, "I'll never vote for [the latest RINO]."

Christie is toast! Cory Booker is black, a Rhodes Scholar, and a Democrat. Biden might even say, “I mean, you got the second mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” If you recall, he said Obama was the “first”.

This is the first time I have said it. Iheld my nose to vote for McLame half hoping the clown would die the day after inauguration, but I voted for him.

I knew that Newt and Santorum would never get in so I decided that I would vote for whomever the GOP nominated.

But I draw the line at Rino TFB.

The democrats will not run Chris Christie in either the Presidential or VP slots. Just my opinion, but switching parties won’t get him there.

How about we start making a list of who WE consider to be “GOPe or Insiders”.

IMHO it includes Tren Lott, now a lobbyist on K street who said in 2010 = we don’t need any more Jim DeMints around here. AAAACH. Aren’t we all sick of New Hampshire and the Iowa Cornhuskers choosing our entire GOP candidate? Let’s make that list.

Boo Hoo Boehner, da Bushes, McCain... Add on here, please.

It’s the NE Cornhuskers and the IA Hawkeyes. I’m afraid our little Republican primary voters will never overcome this loss or even have an idea of how to do so.

Her books are pretty hard to follow; need serious editing. But I do admire the one she did exposing the fallacies of McCarthyism. Joe McCarthy was more right than all his crtitics combined, one of whom was Prescott Bush. Another was Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Bush name may to be toxic to many, but not to the Roving members of the GOP-e. Jebbie, I believe, will be their candidate. The opposition will be too fragmented to stop him.

NE Cornhuskers...... wow Blew that one didn’t I? I knew that - just messed up. Anyway how could I forget that Cornhusker kickback? Saw that weasel on TV the other day. UGH. Also saw Bart Stupak (D-MI)at a Packer game at Lambeau soon after he voted YES for Obamamcare. UGH - follow the money.

What’s the matter with these people in congress? Greedy, power hungry and they become wealthy while taking a $180,000 per year job. Makes me sick - name one that isn’t wealthy now.

As for the Republicans - here in WI, we’re still pretty conservative - whereas elsewhere the Republican Party lost it’s core years ago.

He is to fat to be a national candidate.

Sorry, that is the truth. In this day and age, image sells.

He is also saying there will be massive tax increases soon to pay for the storm. Not exactly a good career move.
