Governor Chris Christie is running for re-election in New Jersey. He’s apparently harboring some hope of winning a Republican nomination for the US Presidency beyond this upcoming race. The man who locked arms with Obama during Hurricane Sandy’s reconstruction — during the last election cycle needs to reinvent himself if he wants to be credible with many Republicans.
He has a RINO stain on his hands and I doubt that it’s going away anytime soon. Elections have consequences and he wasn’t of any use during the last presidential election. Even his speech at the RNC was completely self-serving.
(Fox News) Before taking questions from the public, Christie spoke about the problems in Washington and “a president who can’t figure out how to lead.” The Republican governor, now running for re-election, says Obama is more concerned about being right than “getting things done.”
When a woman thanked Christie for his warm response to Obama after Sandy and referred to the criticism he took for it, the governor cut her off. He says he didn’t vote for Obama and added, “I don’t want him to be president.”
Sharp words from Christie?
It will be a very cold day in November that I roll out a vote for Chris Christie. Governor Christie has been good for New Jersey but he’s no particular fan of the Bill of Rights or the Second Amendment. Christie is not a conservative. Maybe he’s what passes for conservative in New Jersey? Where has he been on the myriad of Obama scandals? I understand that he’s a governor not a national official, but there was nothing sterling in his support for Mitt Romney when even a little help might have tipped the balance. I’m sure that Governor Christie wouldn’t care about a vote that I might cast in his direction. Likewise, I don’t care much about the Governor.
