why do the media and some people make a big deal of Christie re-election?..........his opponent was weak as hell, Christie is the sitting governor meaning he is well known and had by far more money, that usually means a sure win for any incumbent.

that's like the Denver Broncos beating the Jacksonville Jaguars the worst team in football and making the case that because of that they can win the Super Bowl.........Chrisitie is a loooooooobg way from winning the nomination and a general election. I will bet that he can't beat Hillary Clinton in a general election in his home state.


I laugh at CNN how they spin his re-election and the numbers. Like he can attract women and latinos....and they are using NEW JERSEY poll numbers.......Im like look at who was his opponent, Barbara Buono????? did anybody think she ever had a shot? please.

The smear campaign against Christie has been from the loony teabaggers, not Democrats.
I'd vote for him if he ran as an (I) for POTUS but not if he embraced the typical GOP line of more spending on an already bloated defense industry and far too restrictive social policies.

What exactly do you like about him? Certainly not his very Conservative social policies, not to mention his total refusal to get on board with green energy policies and intiatives.

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.
...and it has been pointed out to you, several times, that the campaign season for 2016 has already started...awhile ago. And it has also been pointed out to you, that Christie has a sizeable amount of baggage that will be scrutinized very closely when he is officially a contender, which most people, with much more political expertise than you and me, already agree is a given. Are you Christie's campaign manger and consultant because it is difficult to understand your puzzling denial of what is obvious and par for the course. And...since when is any politican, Governor or otherwise, out of the loop and off limits to public praise or criticism? You do realize that Governors play a major role in national politics and policies too...or do you?

Yeah, I think Christie has far more to fear from his own political party since they are already attacking him for not being enough of a wing-nut.

This is why no smart politician hints at running for president until it is time to run.

and you are getting your information from where? Yes, some were upset with the Sandy issue and yes, many are saying he is going to have to stop attacking other Republicans if he wants to make headway, but he isn't really being attacked by anyone right now. My biggest concern with him and I have a few is: the Democrats that say they would support him, may not, when it comes to marking their ballot. It is easy for any of us to say, hey, that is someone, from the other side I could support, but in the end we back down.
