Just what the country needs a former governor that will throw an election and win at any cost. We can't afford another Bush. When 2 are as poor as they were why would anyone consider a third?

With Christie wounded, JB could get the nod, but he'd be trounced by Hillary.

CC is the only Repub who can win some of the 19 states blue since 1988.a vital thing to do since w/o that, the Dems need to win just those, hold Va & NM easy for them now due to demographics, and win just 1 of 9 or 10 swing states.

So the GOP focus should be on converting at least 2 or 3 of the 19 states blue since 1988.

As much as I don't like Jeb Bush, I would prefer him over Hillary Clinton any day. I hope he doesn't run and then this can all be a mute point.

The country cannot survive another Bush, nor the wars he would start. After all daddy and his half-wit spawn dumbya have three under their belt.

I don't understand why people hate Bush Sr. so much. Especially when you compare him to Jr. and Obama.

I don't want Chris Christie to run for president in 2016. I don't think Jeb has a chance... and personally wouldn't care for him.

Well, Jeb actually is similar to W in terms of policy positions and ideology. In terms of execution, he's probably more effective. Which actually makes him more dangerous than W.

Exactly! Were Dumbya competent and more effective we would be trying to get troops out of 5 different ME countries instead of only 2.

Christie?
I'm beginning to think Chris is done for. The Fort Lee bridge fiasco just keeps growing and expanding, even though he fired everyone he could.
His mea culpas may not be enough to put him back on his feet again, not matter how emotional he gets. When a politician has to apologize too many times, it always leaves a strong unfavorable impression on both his former supporters and those who may lean toward him.

I think he has distanced himself as far as he can, but it's not far enough to save him. His chances for the Presidency in 2016 are over, and his career also may be over if the New Jersey legislature decides to impeach him. There is a growing demand in the state for his impeachment.

No matter what happens, what happens will not be pretty, and most probably won't be in Christie's favor.

I think its governor cycle time ;so he could very well make a run for it.I think people want no insider and want a executive with leadership results and that describes a governor.
