    I like the dude. He doesn't suck up to a political party he just does his job. What a concept. The closest thing we have to a real 'public servant' and folks wanna whine because he stands for his neighbors and his state and not for the latest party platform. Don't that just make him evil? Cheers, Christie. Keep callin' it out.

    @marine1 I care. He'd get my vote in 2016, and it would be a very hard battle for any Dem who would run against him. He doesn't pander and tells you the truth, not what you want to hear. That's why he works so well with his legislature.

    I'd never vote for him, but you hit the nail on the head. These right wingers are crazy, he's one of the best chances they have and they want to throw it all away cause he said something nice about how obama handled the disaster aid...as one who diesn't want a repub in the white house it suits me fine,but ya gotta wonder what it is they put in the tea they are drinking...

    @PoliticalSpice Honestly, I think he'd get a good size chunk of Dem votes because he is honest and will tell you where the bear shits in the woods. His honesty is very rare in the political world these days. Why wouldn't you vote for him? Because he is a Republican? He's shown that he works for the people of New Jersey; not the Republican party. If there was a Dem like him, I'd vote for that person BE AUSE of the honesty and pragmatism. The guy knows what he's doing and works well with others. Our current POTUS is the exact opposite, but Clinton did work well with the Republican Congress and we got results.

    The real Obstructionist is Obama right now. The 'it's my way or the highway' stance is keeping us bogged down.

    Now, what's wrong with Christie? He might just be the one who can legitimately win the White House back for the G.O.P. He has unilateral appeal. Isn't that what the Republicans need in 2016? The old ways are losing, and the Tea Party ways are waaaaaay out of kilter with the main stream.
    Take at least three bites of your peas, you might learn to like them!

    @Keyjo
    The GOP doesn't like him now bc he makes too much sense and isn't kooky enough for the right wingers to manipulate.

    @Creole
    Like when Jon Huntsman uttered those fatal words, " my country before my party!"
    From that moment on, his campaign was doomed.

    @Keyjo I was sooo happy he didn't run. I think he could have beaten obama and could win the white house fir the GOP, which, to answer your question, is exactly what is wrong with Christie.

    his complaining is just a publicity ploy,i think you find being thought of in the same frame as Soprano's hit TV show is a big ego boost,everybody wants to be a bad ass today.i'm sure he coined the idea on purpose

    After kissing Obama lying azz, what do you expect? Leave it to democrats to put a ton of pork in a bill to use victims of a disaster to make money for themselves. And Christie got sucked into the Obama deception. He's too stupid to be Governor.

    Christie is a RINO. I would say he'd run in 2016 but the GOP won't do it because he hated on them too hard after the fiscal cliff and his photo-ops with Comrade Soetoro.

    @RobertJHarsh
    Any modern thinking, progressive Republican is a "RINO!" It will be a RINO who takes back the White House. But, perhaps that will be another 20 years after all the prima donnas have died out.

    @Keyjo There isn't going to be a Republican party in 20 years. They'll be some remnants in the Congress in ten years and running some of the states, but there will be no significant number in Congress by 2020. The Republicans are simply not going to win over the non-tax paying welfare trash that makes up the core of the Democrats. That 47% will be 65% in ten or so years.

    America is lost.

    Besides that fact that Christie does look a little like a Guido type, generally as a politician he is responding to the needs of his constituents. Funny concept there. A politician that responds to his people. I think it's funny that Republicans are upset because the man "rubbed shoulders" with Obama and Democrats are upset because the man "rubbed shoulders" with Obama. He needed help from the Feds for HIS constituents! Sometimes, in politics, you have to stand next to the devil to get what you need. At least he is/was working for his people. Hey D.C., are YOU paying attention?

    I thought James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano was so sexy! Chris Christie should be flattered. I respect Gov. Christie for his plain speaking and strength of character. He certainly has done much to master the disaster his state is facing but I wonder if even he could help the disaster that has become the Republican party

    Christie doesn't look like Tony Soprano.
    Tony Soprano looks like Christie.

    And at least he's not a teabagger, he comes from the rational wing of Republicanism. For which the people of New Jersey should be grateful.

    Imagine if Michele Bachmann were governor...

    Christie's big fault is that he runs off at the mouth before he decides if he needs hot water or cold water...then his ego won't let him admit he said too much or the wrong thing at the wrong time. He needs to remember that he should put his brain in gear before he puts his mouth in motion. Otherwise he is a fine governor.

    Time was stereotyping Christie as a New Jersey "mafioso" a la "The Godfather" because it casts aspersions on his character. Christie has won approval for many qualities that are absent in most politicians. He calls them as he sees them, apparently never heard of political correctness and challenges his critics who often back down in the face of his dominating personality. He did everything humanly possible in the wake of the hurricane and held lesser politicians' feet to the fire to get immediate assistance for devastated areas. I believe he is honest, a rarity among members of the political class, abrasive in nature and also projects the image of an old fashioned paterfamilias. Since political writers have to admit that he has been a very effective governor, they have to choose a negative visual interpretation in order to label him. In this case, as a mafia don.
