Too early to call anything in my honest opine, my dear friend. Could be Cruz, could be Christie, could be anyone. I don't see Hillary in the POTUS seat. NO WAY.

I'm not partial yet to any conservative. I take a wait and see attitude. But here's a guy I'm starting to watch: Scott Walker. I'm also looking at Rand Paul pretty hard. I'm waiting first to see what happens in the 2014 elections--see what happens to Congress and quite a few gubernatorial seat...

You won't again until mid- or late-January. They just really kicked the can down the road again by raising the debt ceiling. What's happening now are a lot of fed agencies are shrinking through attrition and some buy-outs for early retirement, union negotiations. And the fed government, while not "shut down" during holidays, you know it snoozes deeply from about Thanksgiving until well after the New Year holiday. They'll wake up, find out hey... prez only signed a debt ceiling raise when new fed fiscal year started, and start tapping the calculators again.

Tune in again come Jan. 31/Feb. 1, boys and girls...

The only thing Christie has going for him is/was his ability to reach across the aisle. Some don't like him because he's dropped opposition to gay marriage. You know my stance on that, stated that here many times--I really don't care. I have a hard time with the state having to license relationships, PERIOD. That said, I understand the need for standards to define/marriages and families for tax/economic purposes. I may be full-on hetero, but it's one of those "meh" issues to me.

Others don't like him for his ability to deal with Obama during Sandy. Another of those "meh" issues to me -- he had a state that sustained huge economic impacts from Sandy and needed a lot of rebuilding/cleanup. So what? He played nice with Hussein to get federal funds into NJ.

Others don't like him due to his obesity. Another so what issue to me. We all have our medical issues. If he can balance a budget and enforce laws, he can snort like a pig for all I care.

I've seen what he's done in NJ, and he's doing a fair to decent job. He even managed to wrangle the leadership of the Republican Governor's Association, although he had to fight Jindahl over it. And I do like Bobby Jindahl.

But on Christie's real record isn't all that horrible as governor. I'm not sold on him though, I think like you there are stronger contenders possibly. Here's his record, in a nutshell:

I just usually don't get excited over possible candidates more than two years out...lot of politickin' to get done yet...

No kidding little girl???????

Romney was a RINO........

If your God Obama had listened to Cruz, he would be in a hell of a lot better shape right now.

Instead, if he is able to finish his term it will be as a lame duck..........

As you know Keefe, I am not conservative on a lot of social issues.
Frankly, I'm not even a Republican, but I am sure as hell not a progressive.

In the last 2 elections I held my nose and voted AGAINST the socialists.

That being said, Christie is pro amnesty and I will not vote for him EVER..........

He's a tad too friendly toward the Muzzies as well.

Yeah...well I did say fair to decent. I agree with you on the pro-amnesty issue. Have always blown it off because it seemed as if NJ just didn't have a whole lot of issues with it from what I saw (had TDY there, lived there temporarily). But it could be just my blindness, who knows?

I really have a hard time swallowing illegal amnesty. I see waaaay too many still here in Cbus....

Anyone our age who supports amnesty is either anti-American or just plain stupid, having gone through it once before in 1986...my biggest beef with Reagan to this day. He got conned.

People are seeing the reality of Big Government tyranny under Obama with little to no strong opposition from Republicans other than Cruz and Lee.

I would certainly vote for Cruz, Lee or anyone that would play to a conservative base like Reagan did.

We are a nation divided as never before by Barak Obama.

Black youth are already melting down by playing the sick game of "Knock Out" on innocent Whites. If Blacks are this warped with Obama in office, what will happen when he leaves?

Things will get extremely ugly when Whites inevitably fight back.

Yanno, Spookie, I just saw Christie in an awkward position. Take that as a pun or as a literal political position...

Sandy hit, election time. Some say he helped blow the Repub's chances by azz-kissing Obama. Well, I see that he had an awkward situation on his hands, he had to do his job as CEO of New Jersey. Jersey residents pay federal taxes, they were hit hard by Sandy. Christie played the political game to ensure federal funds, FEMA, and even military help got where they needed.

So what? That's my issue. It's zip, zilch, zero, with that situation. He did what he was elected to do, and he got Jersey help and assistance, and the re-building started.

In Texas, Ted Cruz sounds like he's running in 2016

DALLAS Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sounds increasingly like he's made up his mind to run for president in 2016, telling an influential gathering of conservative activists Saturday that "we are part of a grassroots fire that is sweeping this country."

"I'm convinced we're going to win in 2014, and 2016 is going to be even better," the Texas Republican said during a summit of Americans for Prosperity, the political arm of the billionaire GOP donors Charles and David Koch. "And in the year 2017, a Republican president in the Rose Garden is going to sign a bill repealing every word of Obamacare."

Cruz joked about inviting President Barack Obama to the border to see where thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children have poured into the U.S. The president declined such an invitation from Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

"I figured out the only way there is a chance in heaven he might come, I'm inviting him to come to a golf course," Cruz said.

Cruz offered a way to deal with Islamic State militants in Iraq. "ISIS says they want to go back and reject modernity," he said. "Well, I think we should help them. We ought to bomb them back to the stone age."

Hello, Papa Johns? I'd like an extra large anchovy, extra cheese, with a side of American Spectator delivered to the east side of Cbus. And if you could throw it in, Fed Ex same order to the White House.

How the heck is ya?

I agree with Cruz on both counts. The only way to engage Obammy in a dialogue is on the golf course and that the only way to enable ISIS to meet its goals is to bomb the sandbox into glass.
