Looks to me like NJ Governor Chris Cristie is setting up for a 2016 Presidential run … for the Democratic Party. I think he could do it.
I don’t get these guys.
Lefties will vote for one of their own and conservatives won’t vote for him either, so what’s the point? He’s just another pathetic wannabe.
For whatever reasons, Christie has seemingly thrown in his lot with President Obama. Christie can’t possibly think he could win the GOP nomination after all of that. Christie is also a big hoplophobe which is also not going to be a winning position.
Moreover, if you check the link you find that the current big contributors to Christie’s warchest are strongly liberal groups, including Soros front organizations. I don’t think it’s that much more of a leap to sell himself as an Obama third term, just with less corruption and extremism. Christie may also believe that the GOP brand is too damaged for him to win on at that level, given the dismal performance in 2012. Even a blow out for the GOP in 2014 might not matter, since we had one in 2010 yet Obama was re-elected. If the GOP couldn’t win that contest, why not go to the other side?
… to foil Hillary’s chances maybe and give another woman, Susan Rice perhaps, a shot at the presidency? None of the other female lefties is good looking enough to win primaries (the two yentas Obama put on the Supreme Court are representative of female leftwingers) — although they could put up an attractive actress if they could find one who can talk without reciting somebody else’s words.
Hillary will be president unless something cataclysmic happens. I’ve heard stalwart female conservatives say they’ll vote for her because “it’s about time there’s a woman in the oval office” — I think they mean one that sits at the desk, not under it, this time.
Christie had his head turned by the glamour and power of all the media approbation when he palled up with Obama et al. He’ll find out how fleeting that all is if he dares goes off the plantation.
Quite possibly. But this fits in with my view that longer term, we’ll see splits in both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, where the former becomes more like it was in the 60s and 70s while the GOP becomes much more conservative / libertarian. Christie would be a prime example of how that would work — the “squishes” go to the Democratic Party, leaving the GOP more … distilled. Meanwhile the hard core tranzi’s fanaticism causes them to gravitate to third parties, pulling of the Democratic Party.
I hope you’re right (pun intended).
