If, by some freak chance, Christie did win the GOP primary, his current antics will cook his goose in the general. Americans don't like bullies (at least Americans outside NJ) and they don't like crooked politicians who abuse their power.<quoted text>
Too bad Christie can't win a GOP primary. He can't compete with Rick "Ooops" Perry and his loyal following of nutcases - Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, a Paul, Rick "Google It" Santorum, Newt and whatever idiot runs.
And he stands no chance against Hillary. No one does. It's a massacre.
Playing Into Their Hands
But he's managing so far to play into the hands of his political opponents and all national Democrats in the way he's handling the story. In fact, he's doing so so completely that I suspect he's in a situation in which he's simply not characterologically capable of behaving otherwise.
