Is the writing on the wall for Chris Christie?

Anyone who needs further proof that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had best stay away from a presidential run will find it in the double-whammy aimed at him yesterday.

First, an NBC poll shows that in a head-to-head match-up with presumed Democrat 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, Christie trails by ten points.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could face a strong challenge not only from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if he seeks the presidency in 2016 but also from his own party, a new NBC News poll reveals. >>>

The poll's analysis highlights divisions in the GOP with respect to a putative Christie candidacy, with conservatives, Tea Party members, and party members in the regions outside the Northeast either poorly disposed or outright hostile to him.

This poll result, after Governor Christie's landslide re-election victory as governor of New Jersey, must be sobering reading for him and his team. It should also be sobering reading for the GOP.

Yes. Why should dems vote for Christie when they can get 'the real deal' in Clinton? And why would conservatives be exited about a candidate with 2nd amendment and immigration views such as his? And thats not all ...

That polling news is on top of the skeletons the media is waiting to drag out of his closet about past business dealings....IG investigations from when he was an the AG for New Jersey and his brother's shady Wall Street deals.

He is to the left of many blue-dog Democrats on personal liberty and rights issues like First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendment matters. Screw Fat Boy, I'd vote for Manchin before I'd vote for him.

As long as the GOP fights tea part types harder than Dems, it may come to CC. And, he'll get beaten like a drum by Hillary.

While I don't like the guy, if it came down to Christie and Clinton, who would you vote for or would you do like so many "conservatives" did last year and take your ball and go home essentially handing the election to Hillary Clinton?

I would be damned tempted to skip my first presidential election since 1960. Would I do it? I'll have to wait until 2014.



(but I figure old butterball would get my vote while I hold my nose)

Fifty-fifty. Although she's farther left, she is more of a political realist, while he has an ego as big as Obama's and is just as incapable of listening to anyone but himself. I'd be hoping for a GOP sweep in the Congressional elections to keep either one of them from destroying whatever's left of Constitutional government by then.

When will we realize that all of these guys are in on it?

Chris Christie criticized strategists for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign on Sunday, saying no one should “give a darn” about their political advice, but the New Jersey Republican governor isn’t nearly as dismissive of their input as he lets on.

During his re-election campaign this year, Christie hired a political consultancy firm run by Romney’s former top strategists and paid more than $46,000 for their services.

It doesn't matter who I would vote for here in California. Whoever the Dem candidate is they're going to win here so it doesn't matter if I don't vote.

...still, I've never missed a chance to vote against Obama. And, I ain't missing the chance to vote against Hillary. They're so close idealistically, I see very little difference.

...still, I've never missed a chance to vote against Obama. And, I ain't missing the next. As bad as it may seem, there isn't a potential Republican candidate as bad as this guy.

A lion could eat the worst Republican we have and crap him out and I would vote for the pile of crap rather than vote for a Democrat.

Chris Christie is no presidential contender

If the last two presidential elections tell us anything, it’s that Republicans don’t succeed with candidates who lack clear vision and conviction consistent with the party’s conservative platform.

Given this, I understand why Democrats think that New Jersey governor Chris Christie should be a leading contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But why would any Republican see a typical political operative like Christie as presidential material? >>>

The American public is waking up to the fact that they elected, now twice, a president who is long on rhetoric and way short on delivery, and they are getting tired of it. >>>

How can a governor like Christie, who has been at the helm of one of the worst-performing state economies in the nation — unemployment and poverty rates well above the national average, among the nation’s worst in job creation, with one of the highest tax burdens in the country — be the exciting candidate Republicans will be looking for?

Why, when the American people will be thirsty for a real reform-minded leader, would Republicans turn to yet another visionless business-as-usual politico? >>>

He has demonstrated that his own political calculations are more important to him than his party or his nation.

Why else would he not have made a Republican appointment to the Senate when New Jersey Democrat Sen. Frank Lautenberg passed away? Instead, he decided to allow a special election to entice popular black Newark, N.J., Mayor Corey Booker to run for the open Senate seat, taking him out of the game to challenge Christie in his re-election campaign.

At a time when every Republican vote in the Senate is crucial, Christie opted to forego the opportunity of adding another Republican vote there because of his lack of courage to take on a strong Democrat opponent in his own re-election bid.

So running against a weak and underfunded Democrat opponent, incumbent Christie was re-elected.

The nation abounds in courageous, innovative Republican governors.

Unlike Christie, who took federal money available under Obamacare and to expand Medicaid in New Jersey, 21 states are refusing to take this bribe. >>>

And then, of course, we have Christie’s flip-flop on same-sex marriage, announcing that he would not challenge a New Jersey court decision to allow same- sex marriage — after Christie led everyone to believe he would oppose this.

So, again I ask. Why would any Republican think about Christie as a presidential contender?

Lets see. Theres 2nd amendment issues, gay marriage, immigration 'reform' ... the list is growing.

Just as 'abject failure' and 'marital affairs' is a resume enhancement for Dems, 'business as usual' is apparently a resume enhancer for todays GOP elite.

I agree with every point. But, when the primary dust settles, if only CC is left standing, I'm still voting against Hillary. It's the most glowing endorsement for Christie I can provide.

We could really use a true representative candidate for a change. I think an actual conservative would have a much better shot against Hillary.

Now, if the Republican establishment would only bother to support one. That's the biggest hurdle. Conservatives simply aren't represented.
