    Default Christie gives advice to the RNC

    Gov. Chris Christie, saying it’s time to get over 2012 and begin working toward 2016, told Republicans on Thursday that the party could learn from what he has done in New Jersey.


    Sounding more and more like a presidential candidate for 2016, the blunt-spoken governor told a closed-door Republican National Committee meeting that he has won strong support from minority groups, labor unions and voters of all stripes because he stood up to Democrats, held firm to conservative policies and convinced voters that he does what he says.


    “Let’s not forget something: This is New Jersey,” Mr. Christie said. “This is not, you know, the heartland of Republican politics.”

    Yup, he's right, it's not the heartland of Republican politics. So, maybe the reason he's popular there is because he doesn't do things a whole lot differently than the Democrats that rule there?

    He wasn't being particularly conservative when he was sweet-talking Obama for help after Sandy. Why didn't he step in when the electricians' unions wouldn't let the electricians who came from other states to work to help NJ?

    It wasn't Christie or Obama or FEMA who got the public utility workers to NJ to help them out. The public utilities, themselves, have these assistance plans worked out. And these utility companies pay for the labor of those workers. (Had a friend who used to work for our local utility company, and she used to write the checks for that.)

    He's also a fan of more gun control.

    He may be a rough-and-tumble speaker, but not really sure he's as "conservative" as he makes himself out to be ... any more than Obama was as "moderate" as he made himself out to be on the campaign trail.

    Steve Munisteri, chairman of the Texas GOP, said many in the audience came away convinced that Mr. Christie is planning a bid for the 2016 Republican nomination.


    “I interpreted what Gov. Christie was saying as he was going to be a candidate in 2016, even though he didn’t say that,” Mr. Munisteri said.

    This guy is a snake, worst than a Democrat because we know what and who they are. he tries to come off conservative but just to "chummy" with Obama for my taste. Trouble.

    Christie for President? I sure hope not.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    How many would be surprised if Christie ran for the Democrat party? Certainly NOT ME!

    UB, I predicted right here on POTUS during the last election that Christie would be a Dem by the next election. All the signs are there. I don't really care if he actually makes the switch officially... He's a dem...

    I really wonder what is going on ... the press keeps putting forth that it'll be Hillary in 2016. God! Even Geo Bush's daughter, Barbara, says Hillary should run ... since she is so "accomplished" (I wonder where she gets that idea?) How could Hillary survive a campaign with all the scumminess of Benghazi to rake over?

    In a recent poll, Christie is the only one who shows up as beating Hillary. (As I recall Cruz's name wasn't in the poll, but Paul was). Maybe it's because he got a lot of Dem votes, as he has in elections. The Ds seem to like Christie ... his brashness and loud talk, but still supports many items in the D agenda. If Christie ran as a D, I think he would be harder to beat than Hillary. If he ran against Hillary, I think he could get a lot of D votes.

    Someone suggests that Christie would not do well off the east coast. By the time a campaign starts he'd probably have enough name recognition to be familiar to other parts of the country.

    It's interesting to think that this guy could conceivably win a Presidential election on either R or D ticket! He's not red or blue ... he's more purple.

    That said, I would not want to vote for Christie ... but if Hillary was the other choice, I'd hold my nose.

    Reading the comments in an article, I saw one writer suggest that if Hillary was elected, the progressive plan would be to put Obama on the Supreme Court! I can't even imagine what devastation that would wreak!

    Christy is another RINO, McCain and Romney proved to all Conservative thinkers that these moderates cannot win presidential elections. Romney lost because the Republican Base did not turn out, 3,000,000+ did not vote....not because he did not attract independents and moderate Republicans....he did....but you have to get the base to have a chance...and the base is Conservative! CHRISTY IS OUTTA HERE FOR NATIONAL ELECTIONS!

    He's popular with the libs who want to pick our losing candidate again. He will follow the path of Charlie Crist... When he realizes the republicans are on to him, he'll flip and join the Dems.
