Stupid Democrats, maybe.

Christie eats his own and there's been plenty of fodder.

Because republicans today are about dogma, and chris christie ignores the dogma and makes no bones about being a champion for his state - which is very populist of him.

If he could convince me he wouldn't put a Scalia or Thomas on the SCOTUS, I'd maybe consider the possibility of thinking about a Christie marked ballot.

"[Obama] doesn't know how to lead. He's like a man who is wandering around a dark room hand up against the wall clutching for the light switch of leadership, and he just can't find it and he won't find it in the next eighteen days." - Chris Christie, liberal hero.

I'm not saying I'd vote for him, but the man has a certain charisma and a willingness to defy GOP leadership that I like.

That's just stupid.  What, you approve of him because he's slightly more open and slightly less divisive than the rest of the GOP?  That's all it takes for Democrats to approve of a Republican?

SilentStrider: I'm not saying I'd vote for him, but the man has a certain charisma and a willingness to defy GOP leadership that I like.


Only when it benefits him personally.  Note that he was trashing Obama as having no leadership skills right up until the minute where it would look bad to bash the President while taking Federal aid, and then suddenly when it would help him Obama is some kind of bastion of leadership.  And Huckabee is just as much a populist as Christie, but that doesn't make him good.

You're right... I overstated. However the thought of him at this point an time doesn't make me vomit. That's something of a move to the right in my world. But I do find glee in his GOP bashing and don't care if it's for personal gain. I expect that as a politician's motive.

Oh mentioning Huckabee was cruel. I actually shuddered.

That's precisely how I feel. Anyone who knows me understands that I despise modern Republicans (not all through history - just the last 15 years or so). But guys like Christie are refreshing for not being total bastards. Is he kind of a hypocritical dick? Sometimes. But so is Obama. Here's the kicker though - is he an intransigent charlatan? I don't think so.

What I mean is that while I wouldn't vote for him, I wouldn't be too upset if he were to get the nod, or even win. And I'm a word soldier in the Fark libtard brigade. Sadly, and despite multiple high-profile Republicans asking for introspection, the GOP does not appear to be changing anytime soon, aside from stupid pandering to Latinos and maybe, just maybe, the absence of rape talk.

So Barack Obama is not really the president of the United States, and Sarah Palin is our benevolent dictator for life?

BIG fish in a little pond.

He's the big cheese where he can throw his weight around, he's got a big mouth so he gets some press and he only doesn't look like an asshole next to the rest of the GOP.
I wouldn't bet on him for the GOP nomination and certainly not prez.

dickfreckle: Here's the kicker though - is he an intransigent charlatan? I don't think so.


Ehh, I'm not so sure. He only sided with Obama because his state needed help in a time of crisis. He's undeniably head, shoulders and moobs above the rest of his party, but he sure as hell doesn't say "Not a charlatan" to me.

2013-01-10 03:57:19 AM  
He is about the only republican with the ability to drop the retardation and herpaderpy farking idiot shiat for 5 minutes to deal with a real crisis. I still think he believes and does a lot of stupid bullshiat, but just that brief glimmer of humanity makes him better equipped to deal with the universe at large than anyone else in that fundamentalist pile of dickheads.

Pretty much. I mean, I still wouldn't vote for the guy unless he was up against a really terrible human. But I can at least acknowledge that on occasion, he is capable of showing a glimmer of humanity.

I still wouldn't trust him not to do terrible things.

They key word here is NATIONALLY.

Which means that this is just partisan bullshiat. Republicans hate him because they feel like he made Romney look like a tool and Obama look good during Sandy. Democrats like him because of the inverse.

This poll has nothing to do with reality, his actual positions, or even his personal charisma. It will also have almost no impact on his future. I guarentee that if somehow he does get on a 2016 national ballot ticket, those numbers will invert. They always do.

If that's the case, then why didn't Obama get hammered by Democrats for being pally with Christie during Sandy? Isn't that consorting with the devil just as much?

Sorry, but know. Hes a still a Repulbican, and I don't trust any of them. Remember when Romney was a moderate?

I've no doubt that Christie would suck as much teaparty dick as any of them if it would get him the votes.

He's acting like he has a brain, and Democrats admire people who can think for themselves.

Note that this does not translate into DEMOCRATS WOULD VOTE FOR CHRISTIE!!! although in today's political climate, it does translate into REPUBLICANS WILL NOT VOTE FOR CHRISTIE which often comes to the same thing, as we saw in the last election.

Apparently it is if you're a Republican. Which kind of makes sense in a very warped way. They've been arguing for decades now that government is completely incompetent, and anyone in a government position who does a competent job makes it harder for people to accept their ideology.

Man, you're right. That's downright freaky.

As for Christie, just because he shook Obama's hand doesn't mean Democrats should have warm feelings for him. Maybe compared to some Republicans he's moderate and cuddly, but that's hardly an excuse to find him endearing.
 
2013-01-10 04:32:41 AM  
He would be very insightful on border relations with Syria. Everyone is aware of his Turkey position.

Which ties into my previous comment. Many Democrats like it when politicians show government can be a force for good in people's lives and reward people for doing so regardless of partisan ties. Many Republicans HATE government being good and seem to derive pleasure from seeing government fail miserably, and they punish people who show it can be good regardless of partisan ties.

And I will never forgive you for it.  :)

Anyway, I wasn't referring to Christie's and Obama's famous bromance to benefit Sandy victims. I honestly think he's not crazy. Seriously, that's where the bar is set for modern Republicans these days. If he's not a dyed-in-wool sociopath asshole, he's OK.

Chew on that, GOP. Seriously...sit down and actually digest a thought for once in the last 12 years. DEMOCRATS like (or at least don't dislike) one of your crew because he's not a dick. That's a tough pill to swallow, but we've all had to take our medicine at some point in life. Idiots.

I hate it when you're right. Not because I disagree, but because the truth you speak is just farking depressing.

Regarding Sandy, when even an eight-cylinder asshole like Peter King comes out swinging against you, you might want to go back to that drawing board to consider your hopes in 2016.

You're on the right track, but Christie ain't that great. He briefly stopped calling Obama a communist, just for a minute, and that was all it took to have Republicans turn against him. Everybody keeps ignoring the majority of time when Christie is terrible, because being rational, even for just a moment, is so out of character for Republican governors.
 
2013-01-10 05:30:48 AM  
Do not be deceived. The Republican hate for Christie is not genuine. It is a trick. Christie is still a Republican asshole (but I repeat myself). This is all a set-up for 2016.
 
2013-01-10 05:34:07 AM  
He's a politician. He will say what makes good for his career. There is nothing wrong with him taking care of his state (Sandy) but, he still blames the media for the Sandy Hook tragedy. He may be right. But his stripes are still politically motivated. He has not earned my respect. he's campaigning, and Hell, I may vote for him. I guess that says more about me than him. oh well.

Dammit, that's a mental image that's sure to leave a stain.

You are a bad person for doing that and you should feel bad. :>p

More seriously, watching the GOP through FOX bash Christie post-Sandy for daring to not be a dick to Obama for 5 minutes has been a case study in watching someone cut off their own nose to spite their face.

By the time the GOP get finished with all these self administered purity tests and purges their next convention could probably be held at an IHOP without breaking fire code.

And wouldn't that be a darned shame.
 
2013-01-10 05:54:36 AM  
Chris Christie has spent much of his professional life as a corporate lobbyist and attorney for Wall Street fat cat crooks similar to John Corzine,Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein. He personally lobbied to block the inclusion of securities fraud legislation that would have put a brake on the financial crisis crime wave that nearly destroyed the US economy over the past 10 years.

But the media loves to completely ignore this and play him up as some jolly fat guy everyman who had nothing to do with it all. They love to play to this persona he loves to act where he's some tough guy Tony Soprano wannabe, when in reality he's one of Wall Street's versions of Grover Nordquist.

The headline merely says that he is more popular with Democrats than he is with Republicans--it could be as simple as, Democrats hate him less than Republicans do. Given that whole hurricane Sandy thing, that is not surprising.
 
2013-01-10 06:01:08 AM  
I dont think its so much Democrats like him its more like they like how he drives the tea party nuts.

If he runs he will do what Dole, McCain and Romney did. Court the far right with looney gobdlygook but they are so far into derpville he wont make it back in time to the middle to win
