Come on, guys! Christie is a North East Republican which means he is not much different from an old school Democrat. Appreciate him and Scott Brown for what they are not: new school Democrats.
The fact that any would toy with the idea of him for president shows people falling for style over substance. Enjoy the sound bites but only look to him for conservative principles on days when your license plate ends with an odd number.

Freddie 4: Dead center. That is it exactly.
If I lived either place, I’d vote for either one in a state wide election, considering the alternatives.
But I wouldn’t be thinking national stage, and I wouldn’t be shocked about what happens on even numbered days.

He didn’t bite the hand that’s suppose to feed him—(for now) apparently he’s learned not to do that— and he cried for his Idol who is the “Boss” — at least his idol isn’t the one who is suppose to feed him. He didn’t vote for revenge he voted for the one who is suppose to get this country back — in the hands of the evil rich white men— he’s created a balance—

Umm…. the image of the Big CC in tears is not one I wish to contemplate, but let’s be fair: the amount of stress he’s been under the last couple of weeks could unhinge anyone, and Big Man or not, he’s still human.
Still… “hundreds of concerts?” Eek.

I’m giving him a little for the fact that WE put him on that pedestal…desperate at the time for someone to iterate what we have been feeling for so long in the manner he did.
But this is ridiculous….particularly after the ass bath he gave Obama…and especially when “The Boss” couldn’t give his own governor at minimum the respect of the office or that at the very least deserving a pretty hard core fan until he was put into a corner…….

That’s what I mean Sondra, I have admired him greatly. We did put him on the pedestal.
He didn’t like the pedestal he was a pillar for Obama instead and he’d rather be up in AF1– not gonna happen.
Comment by geezerette — November 6, 2012 @ 8:47 am
I have always hoped that folks would get over the pillar thing with him. Despite his good qualities, I do *not* want to see him in higher office; it would be another RINO Run Amuck experience, of which we have already had WAY too much.
But I do respect him some. *Any* success in NJ is worthy of respect, “lace panty” moments not withstanding.
* Footnote: Romney didn’t look so hot a year ago either, so there’s that…..

I had forgotten it the pedestal brought it back. Romney didn’t “look” good because of what we “heard” about him– now that we’ve had a chance to stop,look,and listen– to him and not others– lets hope he can stay on the pedestal and be a real pillar and not a styrofoam one. There’s nothing wrong with working with both ideologies for the good of the country there is good in both.

I think he going to attempt to be more centerist and inclusive that some will want.
That may be okay. It may even be necessary. How long has it been since more than half the country thought whoever was in the White House was “their” president?

Christie is opposite me. I like guns and hate muslims. ‘Nuff said about him!
I have based all my ideas of Romney from his term as governor. I sure as hell hope he wins today, but am not expectant of him to be any better than 41 or 43. My one area of guarded optimism about Romney is that he is business savvy and oriented.

#16— I know you did wasn’t sure others would. Now everyone—some thing to opine— Think of all the others , there were many, who ran in the primaries —- OK ? Do you have them in your mind? Now put any one of them in Romney’s place today—- OK ? Now what do you see? Didn’t like him “at first”???

geezerette 18: Think of all the others… who ran in the primaries … Now put any one of them in Romney’s place today…
I’ve thought that thought a number of times in the last two months. None of the others would have survived, much less had any chance of governing effectively if, by some miracle, they were elected.
My thought at the time was that many of the others could (inconsistently) serve up ideological red meat that might appeal to the base but could not win the election. And that none of them had the temperament to carry through, much less govern. For example, it would be possible to use the name “Newt” and the term “whirling dervish” in the same sentence without thinking very hard.

For Christie it’s always all about Christie, like most pre-teen girls
