All was fine until Christie stopped being combative and confrontational and kissed Obama in public just before the election.<quoted text>
As movement conservatives start to sour on Christie, it might be instructive to recall what it was about him that many of them liked from 2009 through last year. For the most part, it wasn’t the content of his agenda, in which most of his admirers had little interest. It was Christie’s willingness to be combative and confrontational that won their admiration. When this was all that most movement conservatives knew about him, Christie’s future in the party seemed very bright, and his name was frequently listed along with such movement conservative heroes as Rubio and Ryan.
so he was fine until he started acting like he had some sense.
not a characteristic that plays well with the FOXbot crowd.
Christie still has a possibility of turning this around.
