I wish Christie would just lay off fueling speculation about a run for a while so people won't pile on so soon that he gets knocked out of contention before things even get rolling. Depending on who the Democratic nominee turns out to be, I would consider voting for him.
Sure. You'll "consider" it, and then buy all the DNC propaganda smearing Christie as a neanderthal who hates women/gays/blacks/etc. Same crap that happened when the GOP nominated moderates McCain and Romney.

The GOP needs to start nominating small government conservatives and doing what actual Republicans want done. I'm tired of Republicans choosing their nominees based on the preferences of people whose votes they will NEVER win anyway.

I'm a liberal, and I like Chris Christie.

The smear campaign against Christie has been from the loony teabaggers, not Democrats.

Riiight.

Because it's only propaganda when the other side does it.

The dishonesty just oozes.

Many in NJ are not pleased with Christie and his cooperation with Obama after Hurricane Sandy should not have been such a big deal other than the fact that the right wing has become so far right and radical that anyone seen talking the POTUS becomes taboo. Christie has done things that are not worthy of the halo you are tryng to place on his head. Are you kidding with this stuff?
Apparently you don't understand the difference between questioning someone for what they are currently doing and attacking someone because 3 years down the road they might run for president. You are also clearly willing to distort or otherwise fabricate the statements of others. Nowhere did a state or imply that Christie was a saint, or make any other comments about his character. A majority of people in NJ appear to generally like him as governor (or at least the better of the choices) If people in JN want to question him about what he is doing in their state, that is their right.

My post was very limited in scope. It voiced objection to a campaign by Democrats that's only purpose was to flood the nation with negative propaganda about a person that has not even stated if they are running for president. Sorry, but those type of action fall in the scummy category.

They're very good at being bottom feeding scum. Just as we see with their operatives on c-d. Mean, ugly, unpleasant people who were liked in school.
Yep. Despicable. They lie to suit their own agendas. I'm sure old, stupid, senile Harry will be along shortly to declare Chris has never paid tax.

And the low IQ, zero information voters. Thank God for the ignore button. Life's too short for that kind of dumb.

So Obama congratulating a Republican on winning a race for Governor is now a conspiracy all of a sudden?? Really now?

Here we go again. The one thing Democrats are good at: personally attacking and smearing those who disagree with them.
Republicans are doing a pretty good smear campaign of Christie themselves. Point the finger at your own party.

Sounds like your comments can be directly applied to those who are in a tizzy about Hillary Clinton.

Again, failure to see the difference between individuals not liking the work she did and her past policies and an organized campaign designed solely to spread negativity. Are these differences that hard to understand?

Thank you for the clarification - and most of the storm and thunder about HRC falls into the latter category.
