Christie is a fiscally conservative, socially moderate Republican who made a grave error by kissing Obama's ass in 2012.
Whether Republicans will ever forgive him for this sin is questionable.
Absent this serious lapse in judgment, Galt would likely support Christie.
Obviously I would never have voted for Christie. However, at one time, I did feel he had a better chance than most republican front runners of winning a presidential election. Now, he is either guilty of involvement in Bridgegate or he is just incompetent. He is definitely a bully. No way I can see a way back for him.

Not only that but they litter the highways with urine-filled plastic bottles and fail to pick up after their dogs. Animals.

why not just admit that you hate all religions except for secular Judaism...and move on...
I don't "hate" organized religions. I just don't see them as upholders of the bible they love to stand on. As Jon Stewart said,“Religion. It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.”

“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.” John Lennon

well, i fyou look at the historical jesus, he was just one of many, many messiahs of his time. the word mesiah to the people of his time meant the one who would restore the twelve tribes of israel ruling over the holy land again. a holy land that had been ethnically cleansed of all but the jews, as their god had told them to do earlier...

so what jesus was preaching for when he talked of the kingdom of god, was not the one in heaven invented by Paul, and apostle who never met him and was trying to sell his cult to the gentiles, it was the kingdom of god of the old testament as i described in the previous paragraph. these are the words of jesus. these are the words of the bible these are the words of the god that cult created...

hardly...it is you idiotic, untrained PUV drivers that cause almost all the accidents on the roadways.

even in accidents involving trucks and cars, it is the cars that cause the accident over 90% of the time according to the insurance statistics reports from highway patrol and the NTSB...

Interesting how reporters suddenly remember their occupation when it is a Rep. No matter who runs they will need to be able to handle a hostile MSM. His ability to handle this will be a good indication of his abilities.

Annoyed by the hug but totally reject the income inequality motto of the left.

USAsince opinions are naïve and fails to understand the game.

Trouble in Socialist Utopia....

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin (D) spent his entire State of the State address talking about the state’s growing heroin problem.“You will hear from me on many of these topics next week when I present my budget. Today I will focus exclusively on another matter of great concern to our state’s future,” Shumlin said.“The crisis I am talking about is the rising tide of drug addiction and drug-related crime spreading across Vermont.”

Specifically, Shumlin said:

In every corner of our state, heroin and opiate drug addiction threatens us. It threatens the safety that has always blessed our state. It is a crisis bubbling just beneath the surface that may be invisible to many, but is already highly visible to law enforcement, medical personnel, social service and addiction treatment providers, and too many Vermont families. It requires all of us to take action before the quality of life that we cherish so much is compromised.

Shumlin called the problems facing Vermont a “full-blown heroin crisis.” He told stories of young Vermonters becoming addicted to Oxycontin, destroying their lives and altering their “moral compass.” He stated,“Heroin is a drug that does not only grip those who are born into poverty….We must address it as a public health crisis, providing treatment and support, rather than simply doling out punishment, claiming victory, and moving onto our next conviction.”

Shumlin called for more spending on drug rehabilitation and treatment.
