    My list of things I don't like about Christie is quite long, but I'm going to focus on the positive here.
    Three things I really like about Chris Christie:

    1. He doesn't mince words.(Unlike most politicians)
    2. He is 10x more "real" than most politicians.
    3. He puts his job and his state ahead of his own interests.(Unlike most politicians)

    I have concerns about Christie but if it is between him and Hilary, I would vote for him on the basis of the lessor evil.

    @marine1 He did take on teacher unions and a dem legislature in a lib state. Says he willing work across party lines. Problem is he could easily turncoat - choose the path of Arlen Specter. He'd be welcomed with open arms in the dem party if pubs irritate him.

    I think he's the 'lesser' of the evils...we don't have much to choose from, I'd rather see him as POTUS than
    old Hillary. 2016 can't come fast enough. I hope we still have a country by then.

    @Ironicguy Typo - I don't have the key positions memorized and I was only half-looking at my keyboard. Pretty bad though due to the fact that the "q" is a ways off from the "g"!

    Exactly! People are fooling themselves if they believe conservatives will vote for him. He is another John McCain, Mitt Romney waiting to happen. If Democrats have the chance to vote for Hillary Clinton, why would they vote for CC? He will lose the Christian, conservative, and democrat vote. He will win moderate and some independents. He doesn't have a chance.

    I would vote for Christie in a heart beat. He knows how to work with people and get things done. He does not hold to "Party Politics" and can reach across the big divide now present in Washington.

    How the hell is he now considered a "front runner"???

    A) The idea of him running period is laughable. Pretty sure he physically cant walk at a brisk pace.

    B) Why would a republican bother voting for him? He is almost identical in most political aspects to his democratic competition.

    Anyone who thinks a cess pool like New Jersey represents the views of the rest of the nation is smoking crack. Just because some bloated windbag can pretend to be a republican and win a seat in a democratic state, doesnt mean hes going to be the next president.

    The gop establishment never learns. They pushed McCain and Romney as front runners before the primaries and look how that turned out. If democrats like Christie, that should wake people up...the only difference between Christie and Democrats is he claims to be a republican.

    And the democrats tend to put forward candidates that dont look like they eat a bowl of lard for breakfast.

    I don't understand why Americans use surgery to get thin. I weighed 306 pounds, wanted to lose weight and joined a gym. Yeah, it sucked...but with a diet program, dedication, etc...I've lost 200 pounds. No joke. Grow a pair and work hard for what you want. It's tough, but you'll feel better in the long run. :]

    I have some accountant work done by a very obese lady. Last week she fell and broke her hip. Now I'm doing the bookwork. I can't believe my luck sometimes! LMAO!

    Congratulations. All your friends and family thank you for expanding your lifespan. I lost 12k a couple of years ago and it really has helped my general well being as I am down to 80k.

    @ErnestPayne At first, due to the fact that "k" wasn't capitalized, I thought you meant 12000 pounds. I was very confused.

    I have to say NO. I have no plans to vote for ANY Republican candidate, anyhow, but if Libertarians put up someone I don't have any faith in R is my only fall back, unfortunately. I don't particularly care for Christie.

    Hopefully he doesn't do what a lot of people do that undergo this surgery and make his stomach explode.
    The surgery doesn't curb appetite or desire, it lessens the space in your stomach. People eat till they blow sometimes, literally.

    Not me I'm for Hillary in 2016. Rather they listened to the Teapubs and picked a sure loser.

    (just kidding I think it's best for the USA to have two strong parties)

    "the national GOP, frustrated by two resounding defeats in presidential elections" -- resounding? Really? The margins of victory were 7.27% and 3.86% respectively. Even if you only look at 7.27%(2008), it was below the middle of the charts in terms of margin of victory. Resounding is a bit sensational don't you think Mark?
