Or take a helicopter to a limousine to the VP.

I respect the fact that he admits he's fat, and jokes about it.
 
2012-05-01 08:58:49 AM  
Yeah, like the GOP is going to nominate two guys from the Northeast, and who aren't screaming socially conservative extremists.

LOL HE R A FAT
 
2012-05-01 09:15:37 AM  
There's a Veep inside him just screaming to get out. It's hot and uncomfortable in there.

Put a 'yankee' asshole on the ticket. That will get the southern vote out.

Jerk and the Fat Man

Just what we need; a soulless Wall Street sleazeball to throw people out of work, and a bloated bully to tell them to STFU if they don't like it.

That really makes up for the way he talks down to his own constituents and yells at them like a Lord yells at his serfs, doesn't it?

If Romney wants to kiss the ring, I'll consider helping him out.

Christie may be a rising star in the GOP, but I'm starting to think that he would be a nightmare VP pick. He's got way too much ego to play the sidekick role.

He needs to stay here in NJ and keep cleaning things up. He's done a damn good job so far and we'll be way better off as a state if he stays until 2016.

I didn't think it was possible for someone to have a head larger than Mitt's.

The fat bastard's heart couldn't survive the campaign. Plus, have you seen how narrow the doors are on campaign buses?

The only way you're getting that fat fark out of Jersey is if you hoist him onto a barge.

Came to make this exact point but you put it more eloquently than I would have.

Both these guys are loathsome.
 
2012-05-01 09:35:32 AM  
It would be an interesting pick, politically. It possibly opens up NJ/PA for competition, but also probably opens up the South for competition as well. But I think there is a standard rule of never pick a VP whose personality will outshine the nominee.

A Veep is kind of like a spare tire.

Having Christie as a Veep would be kind of like keeping a flat tire as a spare.

Seriously, imagine if he actually became Veep and Romney died in office.

The guy would probably have a heart attack upon hearing the news and then you'd be back to square one.

/Just kidding.
//Romney's not gonna win no matter who he picks so the point is moot.

I think hating Obama has surpassed slut-shaming and repressing one's own sexuality in the hierarchy of motivations of the conservative voter.

They want a bomb-thrower.

Yeah, there's at least a handful of companies still paying taxes in NJ. He needs to fire more teachers to rectify that.
 
2012-05-01 09:42:59 AM  
I fully expect the Romney campaign to be stupid enough to swoon back the women vote by picking as VP a guy who says shiat like this.

I guess somebody needs something to do in order to soften the blow of an inevitable ass-whoopin' from Cory Booker.
 
2012-05-01 09:52:01 AM  
Yeah, yeah, fat and all that. But would having an East Coast centrist (for a modern-day Republican*) help Miitens? Isn't the problem with Mitt that the base thinks he is not all that different than Obama (who is right-leaning center)?

*Which is really darned conservative in reality.

Live in NJ and generally vote democrat but Christie is the real deal. There's not another major political candidate out there quite like him. He reaches across the aisle when it will benefit the state not just when it will benefit his career. He shoots from the hip. He's got a very quick mind. He gives real answers. Southerns and Westerners would love him when they got to know him. And in a solidly blue state, he's got a nearly 60% approval rating.

IF, and this is a big IF, he loses about 100-150 lbs in the next two years, he will likely be the GOP nominee in 2016.

It especially benefits the state when he refuses money for a new tunnel that the state already shelled out millions for. Now they get nothing for all that money they spent.

You guys are all wrong. Obama is a mainstream Democrat. If you subtract his skin color and funny name and entertaining personality and skill at campaigning and willingness to make fun of himself and high intelligence and the like, and only looked at his policy positions, he would be the definition of a generic Democrat.

This is the biggest waste of government spending-building half a project.

My "favorite" example of this type:

Granted, at some point you get to the "good money after bad", but many projects are canceled that never get to that point.

How's that Kool-Aid taste?

He's laid off thousands of teachers, police and firefighters, and given tax breaks to corporations, subsidies to casinos, and taxpayer funds to private beaches. He is a reverse Robin Hood. He is also a liar, a manipulator, and a bully. He's mismanaged close to a billion dollars between his bungling of transportation and education funds and his hand-outs to big business. He's selling out New Jersey's future so he can claim he never raised taxes, and yet I read the other week that property taxes were going up anyway. He got where he is by being a partisan stooge for George Bush and Alberto Gonzales and he's continued his ambitious political calculations as governor. His "real deal, shoot-from-the-hip" schtick, which is really nothing more than being rude to anyone who disagrees with him, has been carefully cultivated. All those famous "Christie moments" were recorded and uploaded to YouTube by his own staff. He's the "Ow my balls" of politicians.

The CHENEY/bush co-presidency was the grotesque outlier in a long line of Veeps who took and did the job in the "not worth a warm pitcher of spit" sense.

Here's the problem with that (aside from the diet part): Chris Christie is a northeast conservative. Yeah he likes to yell at teachers and hippies, which has made im kind of a rockstarr on the right. However he also unabashedly appoints Muslims to things (over the objections of the far-right) and isn't going to rule out anthropgenic global warming because Noah and the flood.

If Romney loses, the tea party base will be convinced that it's because he wasn't conservative enough, and these are people who are now calling Orrin Freakin' Hatch a RINO. Anyone with even a hint of squishiness on any issue will be unsatisfactory to them.
