damageddude: Rapmaster2000: Admiration of Chris Christie is highly correlated with being an emasculated middle-aged suburban nobody who lives vicariously through a paper bully with a ton of backup.

Christie got elected mainly because Corzine sucked as a governor & Christie had name recognition from his time as a US prosecutor (or whatever he did) busting crooked politicians (easy to do in this state). I didn't vote for Corzine because I thought we needed a change. That said, I am getting tired of Christie's act. Disagree with him? Then he calls you an idiot. Present him with some unpleasant facts that doesn't go along with his story? Then you are incompetent. Guilani could be unpleasant, but at least he helped turn NYC around. NJ feels likes the same old same old.

From his cursing a citizen at the shore to his "Corzine Democrats" commercials, he is starting to seem unstable to me. He whines like Romney, except his whines are filled with curses and a lot of attitude.


I didn't really tie it with voting for him. I can see choosing him over a worse option. I'm mocking the people who think he's "in your face" and "doesn't care whose toes he steps on" and other assorted cliche's. I hate his tired schtick. It's so forced.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: I've heard rumors of Christine running for VP and they are silly.

1) Guy's got a HUGE ego. He'll be a Presidential candidate or nothing. Playing impotent second fiddle to a 1% like Romney would not sit well with him.


Yep. This.

My friend and I were trying to figure out who could be the Vice Presidential candidate and couldn't come up with anyone. It will have to be someone whose career is either on the verge of being over (and has no aspirations beyond VP) or someone who is so young and eager, they think the potential benefits outweigh the risk. I think it will be like Palin, in that it is someone we're not familiar with on a national stage. Christie wouldn't do it in a million years -- just as you said, he'll finish out NJ and run on his own/

My family back in NJ are rabidly Republican. But even my grandmother calls Christie a "gavone" and "jadrool" and thinks he's (literally and figuratively) unfit for office.

A fat, rich, loudmouthed bully is the keynote? You don't farking say.

FTFA: unlike Romney he can "talk like a real person"

TIL:

1) Romney isn't a real person (I already had a feeling about that, though)
2) "Real people" are loud, angry gasbags.

OK, now that the fat jokes have played out, it'd be good to focus or discuss Christie's political record.

You know that before he runs for President, he's going to make it a point to lose most of his weight or he's going to have a hard time nationally. He'll be a 'star' and get a crapload of free advertising via NJ papers and the Daily Fail etc, once he starts to drop the pounds. He's been heavy his whole life, so he's going to be a perfect candidate for bariatric surgery and he'll turn out handsome, he's not a bad looking guy. He'll also be schooled to pull back the rhetoric and with his weight gone he'll be a little less stressed out emotionally.

That said, focusing now on his record while it's fresh is probably the best thing any interested person can do. His weight might not be around in four years and you can guarantee he'll be a cottage hero if he loses most of it. The easy way out right now is to make fun of him being fat.

He was a formidible district attorney with some allegations of misconduct that haven't played out too far, and he's been a tough financial Governor for a number of reasons, most of which you can Google. I don't think he's got any scandals in the making. He'll be a serious national competitor if he drops the pounds and some of his anger issues.

Christie is great. Very articulate and connects on a common sense level with an audience that goes far beyond the GOP faithful.

At least there will be one speech worth hearing before Romney takes the stage.

Plus, it will be a great to see him unveil his new Jenny Craig look. Because he's a bit portly right now, if you didn't know.

Christie's numbers are good enough to get re-elected in New Jersey, but it'll be real interesting to see how that changes if Cory Booker throws his name in the mix. If Christie stays out, then he's really banking on Booker going for a US Senate seat instead of the governor's slot, because I don't think a gubernatorial loss would look good heading into 2020 for Christie.

Though I don't think Booker will challenge Christie in 2013 using the same logic, a loss would look pretty bad for him.

Booker is a Bloombergocrat. He wouldn't dare anger the bankers by taking out the GOP's golden boy.

Sure. Quotes like this one are the reason he's so entertaining.

"I'm not looking to be loved. You see, I think politicians get themselves into the biggest trouble when they care more about being loved than being respected. That's why we run up these deficits we run up. That's why we can't say 'no' to anything. Because we care too much about being loved. I'm loved enough at home, believe me - on occasion."

I think he has the same problem as Guilliani -- he doesn't play well with others. While you can get away with that in NYC and NJ, where you have a lot of people who are either like that or deal with people like that on a regular basis, I'm not sure how that would play on the national stage. On the other hand, the GOP seems to be headed that way anyway so he might do very well.

Imperialism: I don't think Booker will challenge Christie in 2013 using the same logic, a loss would look pretty bad for him.


He'll wait to run for Governor till 2017 when term limits force Christie out (assuming he is still in office) and then for President in 2024 or 2028 (just a guess).

The GOP convention speeches are all about handing their base "red meat".

There's a fat joke in there, but that's not my point. Who else do they have other than Christie? Most of the heavy lifting at their last one was handled by Giuliani, Romney, and Palin. Palin is out. I don't think Giuliani will be there. So that leaves....? Santorum? Jindl? Pawlenty? Trump?

They really don't have a lot of options as far as charisma goes. Christie will get up there and yell about the debt and unemployment and "elites" for a half hour and then collapse on the stage. If anything, him being there will motivate as many Dems to give/vote as it will Republicans.

I think he should run for congress and put his love-aversion to the test. I am sure he'll take down the defense budget with an iron fist.

Jersey City, Hoboken, even Bayonne I could see. But is there really a trend now of Wall Streeters making the 20-minute PATH commute from the Brick City every day?

I mean, it's a much safer place for upper-class white people to live now than it was from the '60s through the '90s... but still.

Though there's still Jodi Rell and Mary Fallin and Nikki Haley. Haley is also half hispanic, so she should probably be shortlisted if she isn't already.
