    One of Chris Christie's top political advisers revealed that he is considering formation of a federal political action committee because of the extraordinary interest in the New Jersey governor.

    Bill Palatucci, often described as Christie's "political godfather," said that not forming such a fundraising committee would be "leaving money on the table....."Palatucci, Christie's former law partner, made the remarks even as he tried throwing cold water on the notion that the governor ó who's gotten acclaim from national Republicans ó is taking steps designed toward a presidential run.

    "If reporters would look for a second below the surface, they'd see I've never been to Iowa," Palatucci said, adding that another adviser, Mike DuHaime, "has not been to New Hampshire. There have been no lawyers hired to advise or investigate a presidential run.".....But on the possibility of forming a federal committee, the newspaper quoted Palatucci as saying: 'I might frankly contemplate that. There's so much interest out there; it's leaving money on the table by not having one."

    The newspaper reported that Palatucci was referring to a presidential exploratory committee, but in a statement to POLITICO shortly after publication of this article, Palatucci clarified that he was merely referring to a federal PAC ó so-called leadership PACs that politicians use to raise money and contribute to other candidates.

    I don't buy it. This is a trial balloon at best.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I am not so sure about that. There is a 10 state alliance from Maine to MD that auctions off these greenie credits every quarter. Christie has pissed off liberals cause instead of using the funds for cap and trade boondoggles he is going to use it to balance the budget. This cap and trade crap was there long before Christie was elected.

    That's why I say that 99% of the politicians in that part of the country are not conservatives. They may talk shit like Romey but they are RINO's, and is not what the Republican party needs.
